“Publishing Book, Empowering Women & MORE”– WHOA GNV Podcast

Rebecca Heflin & me, live on the WHOA GNV set

Rebecca Heflin & me, live on the WHOA GNV set

 

A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to spend the morning with fellow romance author Rebecca Heflin, chatting about romance writing, writers life and more on the WHOA GNV podcast with Collin Austin.

The show highlights entrepreneurs, leaders, business owners, and generally awesome people living and working in Gainesville, Florida. Listeners can listen to the podcast and those  who prefer can view the video on YouTube.

Join us as we share how we got our start as romance readers and writers, our process, thoughts on traditional vs. small press vs. indie publishing, a little Valentine’s Day advice, and the thrill of making the USA Today Bestseller list.

HEA USA Today Calls Their Perfect Melody an “Absorbing Story!”

I’m extremely sad to say that today is HEA USA Today‘s last day for new content, though previous reviews and articles will remain online and searchable.

And yet, I’m extremely thankful that the site and one of its contributors,  Keira Soleore, gave me one final gift in 2018 by posting a wonderful review of Their Perfect Melody, book 3 in my Matched to Perfection series with Kensington!

HEA USA Today provided an outlet for authors to share book covers, release news, reviews, author-life articles, and more. As a LatinxRom author, I say thank you for the light all who contributed to HEA shone on AOC (authors of color) and our work.

Publisher’s Weekly Article: “It Takes a Family to Support a Romance: PW Talks with Priscilla Oliveras”

I had the pleasure of chatting with Victoria McManus from Publishers Weekly  a little while ago via phone. We spent some time talking and laughing as she asked questions and I tried to answer without being too nervous.

Let’s say, she’s a great journalist who definitely knows how to put someone at ease, and I’m super pleased that PW gave me the opportunity to share a little about myself, my writing, and my Matched to Perfection series with Kensington Books.

4 Chicas

 

The chicas of 4 Chicas Chat– Mia Sosa, Alexis Daria, Sabrina Sol, and I– had a chance to meet with Maureen Lee Lenker from Entertainment Weekly during the RWA®  National conference in Denver.

It was a lively conversation filled with laughter, insight, and the truth about how and why we came together.
