    Book Brew with the Crew

    Love me, love my dog/cat/iguana/gerbil??? These days with fewer people actually living on farms and ranches and dealing with animals every day, mostly on a practical and less sentimental basis, our four footed, feathered or even scaled companions have assumed major roles in our lives! For Book Brew In April we will celebrate this relationship as it figures in fiction. Does a critter bring the lovers together? Does it almost break the relationship? Does it help solve the mystery or foil the bad guys? This is what we're going to see! And to add another twist to the mixture, what if you can have your pet and your SO all rolled into one? The handsome hunk who is also a wolf, the gorgeous chick who is sometimes feline, even a prince or princess who can become a dragon, a bird or some yet unknown creature from an alien world? Come and join us to learn about books featuring pets, shifters, and heroic or comical creatures that are major secondary or even primary characters in an exciting tale! Book Brew for April will happen on April 1--no joke here!--from noon until eight in the evening, EDT. Join us that day at www.coffeetimeromance.com/CoffeeThoughts and as always, be sure to comment on the excerpts and other posts for chances to win a raft of neat prizes. We'll try to announce a few of our featured authors as they sign up but you can expect some familiar faves as well as some new writers who you may not yet have had the chance to meet! Click Here
