140 Characters worth of Secrets, Love, and Life

Posted on Apr 5 2013 - 8:25pm by Jenna Carafa

Romance writers are just like you and me right? Of course they have lives outside the fantastic and beautiful world’s they create for us to read. So it is only natural that we as readers would have to find other ways to keep up with our favorite romance writers—such as Twitter. When some of our favorite writer’s aren’t busy creating new worlds and characters for their readers to fall in love with, they are just as busy giving play by plays of their days, tweeting fans, or giving inside information to possible new books or ideas. It is so easy to forget that these writer’s have responsibilities and lives outside of writing, so it is nice to see the occasional tweet from E.L James’ saying “Off to the movies.. :D” or Kyra Davis saying “Quick! What do I want for dinner? And don’t say chocolate chip cookies because I already had that as my appetizer.”

Naturally we want to know what goes on in these writer’s ever day lives with the hope that they may spill a secret or two about an upcoming book. So it’s nice to see some our favorite romance writers sharing with us their lives—and they’re not holding anything back.

Here’s a few tweets from some of our favorite romance writers telling us what they have been up to this week…
