Marketing for Romance Writers Summer Camp

Summer is always a special time for me. My children come home for visits and I get to sit outsde and enjoy the great outdoors. People think I’m strange becase I love the heat. I don’t even mind a few mosquitoes once in awhile, but just a few. My home has a large deck that is not far from my pond and I’m surrounded by large oak trees. So sitting outside, listening to the frogs and crickets, while writing my next book is heaven for me. This year I want to invite all of you to attend Summer Camp with me. MFRW is an amazing group and they have helped me reached my goal to be a published author with thier advise and information.

So this year join Marketing for Romance Writers summer camp. What is MFRW Summer Camp? Marketing for Romance Writers began as a Yahoo group of a dozen authors who wanted to know how to market their books. They shared information and passed it along to other writers. There are nearly 1800 members today. I love this group because it’s not about author promotion or advertising, it’s writers helping each other.

When: July 12-14

Where: Join MFRW’sYahoo group and you’ll be in the loop for A Taste of Summer Camp

Cost: Free!

Added bonus: Prizes!

Who can attend: Everybody. You don’t have to be a romance writer. The information given applies to anyone.

More info will be given on the Yahoo loop, so keep your eyes open. The traffic can get heavy, especially during camp, so you might want to set your preference for this group to Daily Digest. I believe this year, camp will be held at Coffee Time Romance, in the Forum section.

Here is my recipe for the Tate of Summer Camp. I hope you enjoy it and will attend summer camp with me.

I see many nights around a camp fire with old friends to visit with and new ones to make.

Since my book, Rescued from the Dark, is a Suspense I decided to add a sizzling Hot Recipe for a great summer dish. This will spice up your special meal, with the emphasis on Spicing up your evening. 🙂

Mexi Baked Chicken

Another personal friendly favorite of mine. It’s flavorful and easy to throw together, bakes in less than 1 hour. I serve this with a side of my Mexican rice.

    • 2 (4 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts”2 teaspoons taco seasoning ( I prefer homemade with no sugar added)
    • 1/2 cup salsa, hotter the better
    • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese 


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray a shallow, small baking dish with non-stick spray.
  3. Coat chicken lightly with taco seasoning, on both sides; spoon salsa over top of breast. Sprinkle with Jalapenos
  4. Bake, uncovered, about 45 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle cheese on both breasts evenly; bake for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted through.


Until next tme,
