Please welcome Madison Sevier to my blog promoting her latest release "Natural Lust".


Kallie Masters has spent the past seven years becoming a renowned reviewer, foregoing any romantic entanglements for the sake of her job. Good or bad, she is highly respected by her readers and peers. But when an arrogant author sends death threats in response to Kallie’s scathing review of his latest novel, her boss sends her on a weekend getaway.
Kallie’s mountaintop respite is shattered when she runs into Hank Fogle with his drop-dead gorgeous eyes and frat-boy attitude. Denying the unmistakable chemistry between them, Kallie steels herself against the attraction, determined to remain aloof and free of the mess this man would surely bring into her life.
Can the magic of the Smokies allow her to let things flow naturally between them or will she fall into a lustful trap that will only break her heart in the end?

“That’s right. Just walk away. Don’t worry about me. Don’t offer to pay for what you did. No worries, I will handle it myself. Just like I always do.” Kallie proceeded to pack up her soaked belongings and muttered about inconsiderate, senseless jerks.
The man turned around asking, “Pay for what?”
“Oh, now you want to know? Well, Mr. Pool God, if I must repeat myself again, you ruined my laptop and my e-reader. They are currently full of the water you so kindly sent cascading over them and me.” Kallie pointed to the chaise lounge she’d occupied, still soaked and sitting in a puddle.
“What are you talking about? Do you always talk in riddles?”
Ugh, men!. "Listen, just be a gentleman and at least offer to pay for the damages.”
“Me? Why? You’re the one who brought the gadgets to a pool. Did you ever stop to think that might not be the best idea?”
The man grabbed a towel from a nearby bench and began wiping down each and every kissable inch of skin on his body. Kallie could see him as one of those guys in the shaving cream commercials on TV. Lean, rock-hard abs, asses women long to claw and that irritated her even more. The guy ruined her things and he was a jerk. Plain and simple! What the hell was she thinking getting all hot and bothered by some strange, laptop-murdering flake?
Romance author, Madison Sevier, officially began her writing career in 2011 by going after her lifelong dream and has been having the time of her life ever since.
Her days are spent homeschooling her daughter and doing the bookkeeping for her husband's business. At night, she gets to become someone else, creating characters who work their way into the hearts and minds of romance readers everywhere.
Being a coffee-addicted Gemini, Madison is known for doing whatever strikes her fancy at any given moment. Some of her favorite hobbies include; hiking, geocaching, animal rescue, writing, reading, baking, horseback riding and she loves NASCAR.
Living in what everyone calls 'Kentuckiana' with her husband, daughter, two Chihuahuas, one Saint Bernard and two cats, she's found the perfect paradise to allow all of her stories to come to life. Against a backdrop of the Ohio River and surrounding hillsides, she never knows where a new romance will come from. But you can be sure you're going to hear about it.
She loves hearing from her readers and meeting new ones. Feel free to contact Madison at or through her blog:

Hello all, firstly thank you for visiting me on my blog and I hope you take the time to look at my books and possibly purchase.

Now every month I am signed up with many other wonderful authors to talk about writing and the phenomenal journey that comes with it. Now promoting is one of the major attributes to being an author and sometimes doing this can prove harder than writing a book, just gathering the audience and making sure your book gets around in the big wide world. We all need to work as a team and help each other as much as possible.

Please come on over and join the Curious Bluster team and discover new authors and new books, with many different genre's to choose from.

My post for August was talking about Research

All writers need to do some form of research for a novel they are about to write, whether its location, your character, jobs, or lifestyle to help make the novel more constructive and give vision to the reader. Research gives the writer teeth, gives it vital impact and makes it believable. Some research can be harder in one book and simple in another, depending on the intensity of the book or how deep you take it. I recently had to research Intensive care, although myself I have been in such a situation, being the patient, but it was more looking at the angle from the partners eyes, seeing the equipment that can be very alarming, the sounds of the machines, sounding frightening and worrying intensively about your loved one, all had to be a contributing factor. Let alone, when the patient finally, woke, that bit I could write from experience, never an easy task, but written from the heart, which can always make book even better. We as writers don’t always know everything, and it’s vital that we learn, knowledge, resource and give the valuable time to gather information in our writing time.
I myself have many different sources for gathering information to help charge my creative juices, firstly once the idea comes into my head, it’s developing that character, getting vision and locating that very person you can see in your mind, I use Pinterest, Google, Facebook, magazines. I was sat at work one shift and a service user has a daily newspaper that comes with a magazine and there was a female in there that I saw, liked the look of and was perfect for the look of the character and therefore, I asked the service user if I could have the picture, and she agreed, knowing I am a writer out of work, she felt she contributed to my novel, she did, the main character. Places I have visited, with the resources of doing a little back ground of the surrounding perimeter, although being a writer we also have the freedom to put things in place, eg, the location of the hall I used recently in my WIP, was the hall and its spectacular land, only on the farmland next to the hall was a large barn belonging to another, I moved the barn onto the halls land, we all shift things to make the book more adventurous and after all we all need that extra spice.
Other guides of research, read, read and read, and write, write and write after all we all learn from each other and develop our knowledge, it can be fun or hard, but the harder the more challenging and also can be made a better read
No matter what you are researching, happy researching!
Go on take a look with many authors talking about all different kinds of things, you might even learn something, from punctuation to editor, to book covers, their journey and even talks about the hero's and heroines, and much. much more ;-)
