CINNAMON AND SUGAR R W Richard's new romance novel

  A Note from Hywela Lyn

Dear friends and readers, I haven't posted on this blog for several months, other than one or two book spotlights I'd already promised. I'm sure you'll understand that with the sudden and unexpected death of my husband of 27 years, and then having to have my beloved horse sent to the Rainbow Bridge, not to mention 'lockdown' because of the pandemic, I haven't felt much like writing, blogging, or even being on-line much, but I did read all the kind and supportive messages from my on-line friends and truly appreciate each and every one. I'm now going to try and get back into the swing of things, and might even manage to finish my work in progress, the Matchmaker's Mare!

To start off my New Blog Year I'm deviating a bit from my usual Science Fiction/Fantasy Romance, to feature a fellow Wild Rose Press Author R W RICHARD. I do love to help promote my fellow authors and I think this book is not only an enjoyable and entertaining read, but has a very important message.

 These are difficult times, and I agree with Bob's philosophy that it is now even more vital that we love, respect and care for each other, whatever colour, creed, or gender, valuing, rather than belittling our differences - they are, after all, what make us human!

 CINNAMON AND SUGAR

 BLURB: Humphrey Bertrand's genius-level IQ can't help him find his moral compass. His family is filled with racial conflicts and he struggles to find his own way. But he cannot let anyone drown, regardless of their skin color. Alicia Bloom, a gifted valedictorian and poet runs away from an abusive situation. While she is thankful to Humphrey for saving her life, she doesn't want to be tied to anyone. When an attempt on her life forces them to hit the road together to stay one step ahead of a murderous maniac they wonder if their dreams of a future will be put on hold permanently.

FINDING YOUR MUSE(S) by RW Richard
When I write I search for a model who captures what I think my hero and heroine look like. I try to capture them in the process of struggle, since the arcs of the story and scenes are so important. In this novel, Cinnamon & Sugar, published by The Wild Rose Press, the two models below are exactly how I pictured them. In the story, Alicia, is compared favorably to any number of young starlets. Humphrey when first seen disturbs Alicia s resistance, but she’ll struggle on.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A NOTE regarding recent events. People have told me I stole the story from the violence in D.C. I can’t write that fast. If ever you send a manuscript to a publisher you can expect a year to go by before it’s out. My story is about how love knows no boundaries.

When I was caretaking my daughter, I read to her from my draft manuscript that I have since dedicated to her. I read to keep her mind off her pain and that she might have to leave soon. I never imagined her reaction. She cried, yes, of course, it’s a tear jerker, but it was more than that. It was how she loved, lived, and taught. She, being who she was, instructed a professional writer (me), on changes she wanted (demanded). Since it was on a subject (racial hatred and brother and sisterhood) that caused her to march just like her old man did with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., she made me promise I get a ‘real’ publisher, “and, Dad can you help my boys?” I said, “yes, honey, all the royalties will go to them.” So, Lani became my third muse and first angel. The story is rated PG.
