Anna was nice enough to invite me over to play on her blog. My name is Roni Adams and I'm an author with The Wild Rose Press. While I have a book out in the Champagne Rose line called "Beauty and the Geek" its really my cowboy stories that I'm best known for.
"To Tame A Cowgirl" was released in the fall of 2008 and the folllow up "The Cowboy Comes Home" came out in January.
The third in the series, "Trouble in Texas" with the smoking hot heroine, Charli Boyd, is scheduled to release in early summer, 2009.
Every author has her passion and hopefully because its something that interests you, it makes the research and writing an act of love. Someone once said if you can make a living doing something you love that truly is the key to a happy life. While I can't tell you I'm making a living at writing cowboy stories, I certainly am enjoying the writing and research. In fact next week I"m leaving to visit Bandera, Texas - self proclaimed "Cowboy Capital of the World". I'm staying on the Silver Spurr Dude ranch and riding up into the hill country of Texas. To top that off I'll head into San Antonio for the annual Merritt conference with the lovely ladies of the San Antonio Romance Authors (SARA). Yep definitely having fun!
If you don't know much about The Wild Rose Press I would strongly encourage you to check out this publishing house. Its a small press and it releases their books in both print and electronic versions. They take short stories and full length novels. My cowboy books are in the Yellow Rose line and I'm in there with some pretty powerful company, authors like Stacy Dawn and Cindy Pape and Judith Rochelle to name a few. Wonderful authors who write great cowboy stories. The Wayback, Texas series has been the most popular in the company. If you haven't read any Wayback stories I strongly advise you pick up a few (www.thewildrosepress.com). I'm also coming out in an anthology in June called "Return to Wayback". In my story, "Under a Rodeo Moon", my hero is a blonde blue eyed bull rider and my heroine is a reformed spoiled socialite. Getting these two back together was quite the chore that's for sure.
Anyway, I'll be here all day if anyone wants to talk to me about my stories or The Wild Rose Press or cowboys and research. Thanks again to Anna for letting me lasso her blog and talk to all of you.
