Guest Post for BFF Book Blog

Catching Up with Old Friends Part of the fun in reading (and writing) novellas that are part of a larger series is the chance to catch up with characters in previous books. Whenever I read or write a novella, I feel like I am sitting down with old friends. And if I get an opportunity…

I grew up in North Texas, and after living in Washington D.C., Chicago, and suburban New Jersey, I moved to back to Texas, but settled in the capital city, Austin.

Hanging by a Thread’s Signature Cocktail

By Jenna Sutton | Jun 20, 2016 | 0 Comments

One of my favorite scenes in Hanging by a Thread takes place at a party where the heroine, Bebe Banerjee, has an interesting conversation about bourbon distilling with Jonah Beck, a guy who owns a micro-distillery. Beck’s interest in Bebe draws the ire of the hero, Cal O’Brien. Cal and Bebe end up in the…

By Jenna Sutton | Jun 13, 2016 | 0 Comments

I put together playlists for all my books, and I really love the playlist for Hanging by a Thread. The hero, Cal O’Brien, is a big fan of indie bands, so I’ve included several songs from indie bands on the playlist. And an important scene in the book centers around a song by the indie…

By Jenna Sutton | Jun 8, 2016 | 0 Comments

My five-year-old niece doesn’t sleep with a stuffed animal. Her favorite nighttime lovey is a limited edition miniature Tesla that her grandfather received as a thank you for buying one of the first electric cars. She calls it “Big Orange Car” because, well… it is a big orange car. Big Orange Car isn’t soft or…

The Life of a Late Bloomer

By Jenna Sutton | Jun 7, 2016 | 0 Comments

I read advice columns. I’m not ashamed to admit that I am insatiably curious (aka nosy) about the challenges that other people face in their professional and personal lives. What can I say? The letters spark a lot of ideas for books… or books that I would never write! Just a few weeks ago, I…

How Do You Feel about Hypocoristics?

By Jenna Sutton | Jun 22, 2015 | 0 Comments

  I love hypocoristics. Now take a second to read that again. I love hypocoristics. Not hypocrites. I definitely don’t love those. I’m just guessing, but I doubt you know what a hypocoristic is. I didn’t, not until I typed the word nickname into Google. The term hypocoristic is used to refer to a nickname of…

By Jenna Sutton | Jun 22, 2015 | 0 Comments

Is there anything sexier than a hot guy in a well-fitting tux? Well, yes, I think there is… a hot guy in a pair of well-fitting jeans. And I’m not the only woman who thinks a man is sexier when he’s rocking jeans instead of something dressier. In fact, the vast majority of the female…

Trendy Themes in Romance

By Jenna Sutton | Mar 26, 2015 | 0 Comments

Even if you’re new to the romance genre, you’ve probably noticed some popular themes. Off the top of my head I can think of dozens. I think the most common trope is the “rich kid falls in love with someone from the wrong side of the tracks and reconnects as adults.” There’s also the “powerful…
