WLW & lesbian slow-burn romance novels (F/F Fiction Crossword Challenge #4)

  I hope you are having fun with the F/F Fiction Crossword Challenge! For our fourth puzzle, I picked one of my favorite tropes: wlw and lesbian slow-burn romance novels. Slow-burn romances are novels in which the romance develops gradually. Instead of falling in love or jumping into bed in chapter 1, the characters take the time to really get to know each other, forming a deeper connection, and that’s what I like about this kind of romance novels.   A big shout-out to my helpers!

A Day in the Life of a Full-Time Writer

The one-year anniversary of my transition to full-time writing is quickly approaching, and it makes me think about how much my life has changed. So I thought I would blog about a typical day in the life of a full-time writer—if there even is such a thing. Each day is different, which is part of the fun, but I try to keep a certain structure. So here’s what I did yesterday. I never set an alarm clock, but my inner clock wakes me at the same time every day, usually around 7:15 a.m. I get up, change into my work …
