Today, we welcome Molly O'Keefe back to The Romance Dish. It's always cause for celebration when Molly has a new book out. This time around it's WILD CHILD, first in her new The Boys of Bishop series (read Janga's review here).
Please give Molly a warm welcome!
The Art of the Glom
As I write this post, it's a rainy Sunday after a really busy week and I can hear my kids gloming a show on Netflix called Kick Buttowski. There's a chance this show has the most annoying theme song ever. But last night, with a glass of wine and the TV to myself, I finished my own glom of Sons of Anarchy, Season One. Until two in the morning!
I recently discovered Sarah McLean's historical romances - glom.
Thea Harrison's Dragon series - glom.
I've stayed up late, woken up early, taken the book to the park, because I NEEDED TO FINISH THE BOOK, all so I could start the next one.
Gloms are little mini-addictions.
And while the adrenaline thrill and satisfaction of starting and finishing an entire television season, or a series of books in a week is nothing to sneeze at, I wonder how much we're missing when we do that? How many little subplots and moments are read and immediately forgotten because it's two in the morning and frankly, we're just skimming to the end so we can see what the cliffhanger is for the next book?
I love Meljean Brook's Iron Seas series, because whenever a new book comes out, I re-read the first books as a refresher course on the world. And with every re-read, I feel or think something new. That's its own kind of thrill.
So, what about you? Are you a glomer? What was the last glom you went on? Or are you a read it/watch it as they come out kind of person?
To feed your next glom - I will give away one copy of Can't Buy Me Love - the first book in the Crooked Creek series and WILD CHILD the first book in my new series; The Boys Of Bishop, to one lucky winner.

Monica Appleby is a woman with a reputation. Once she was America’s teenage “Wild Child,” with her own reality TV show. Now she’s a successful author coming home to Bishop, Arkansas, to pen the juicy follow-up to her tell-all autobiography. Problem is, the hottest man in town wants her gone. Mayor Jackson Davies is trying to convince a cookie giant to move its headquarters to his crumbling community, and Monica’s presence is just too . . . unwholesome for business. But the desire in his eyes sends a very different message:Stay, at least for a while.
Jackson needs this cookie deal to go through. His town is dying and this may be its last shot. Monica is a distraction proving too sweet, too inviting—and completely beyond his control. With every kiss he can taste her loneliness, her regrets, and her longing. Soon their uncontrollable attraction is causing all kinds of drama. But when two lost hearts take a surprise detour onto the bumpy road of unexpected love, it can only lead someplace wonderful.
