Spreading The Seed

I love spinning tales of romance in the Silicon Valley setting. I'm told I seriously over-glamorize the lifestyles of my heroes and heroines but whatever. I write FICTION so isn't that kind of a requirement? I mean, I have to keep things interesting. right? <wink, wink="">

As an entrepreneur, I am fascinated with goings-on in the Valley. There's such an aura over Sand Hill Road; it's just bubbling over with innovation, creativity and energy. Being part of that atmosphere,…

Want A Chance To Win A $50 Amazon Gift Card???

Marketing. It's a word that simultaneously excites me and makes me cringe. Platforms are constantly changing, making it difficult to reach a target market (ahem, Facebook), prospective customers are tuning out more and more because there is a constant glut of information being thrown at them, key performance metrics that trended positive six months ago may not mean much now because marketing channels are flooded with content and becoming largely ineffective.

So the question is...with…

The genre can be used for discussing about a particular movie, novel or even a speech that can be related to a particular subject. Some of the genres quite popular are romance, crime and psychology apart from various other types.

Obsessing About Mr. Wonderful

I'm giggling because I'm mildly obsessed with Mr. Wonderful these days. Anyone who's read my blog recently can attest to that. 

Could it be because he kinda reminds me of Paul Emerson, ruthless and calculating CEO of Blue Coat Capital? 

Check out my novel Unlikely Venture if you're…

Perfect Date?!

A perfect date...oh my word.

Sounds like a lot of pressure, honestly.

I've come to realize that perfection is an impossible standard for this mere mortal. I actually attempted a romantic getaway with Wolf, the hubby last month.

It didn't go well. If you want all the gory (albeit funny) details, including stockings becoming slouch socks, you can read it here.

Anyways.

So,…

Lego Alert! Fifty Shades of...Brick?

You've all seen the movie trailer but have you caught...the Lego version????

I eat, sleep, breathe and step all over Legos on a DAILY!! I need to wear slippers to protect my feet from those tiny plastic pieces which have drawn blood more than a couple of times.

Then I came upon this trailer and thought it'd be apropos to share with you all, you know, since I'm a romance author as well as a mom to a bunch of little Lego master builders. =)

Happy Friday!!…

I Want A New Drug

Some people say you should write what you know. It makes sense, doesn’t it? After all, you can deliver a more compelling story if you’re familiar with the subject.

My editor told me from day one to expand out of my comfort zone and do just the opposite.

When I wrote Unlikely Venture, I had a storyline in my head. Okay, that's not exactly true. I had about a HUNDRED stories in my head before landing on the ONE, and even then I flip-flopped around until I landed on the…
