Good morning!

Good morning all! I’m so happy to be here today with all of your celebrating four wonderful years with the LASR/WC crew. Congratulations on your success and here’s to so much more!

I’m Lila Munro, purveyor of realmantica…romance with a bent and a healthy dose of realism. Who am I beyond that? Well, many things actually. Military wife, mom, friend, pet lover, college graduate, marketing director to Rebel Ink Press…did I mention military wife? That’s a biggie insofar as how it influences my writing. Most of my stories, but not all, revolve around military heroes and their heroines. And that experience only serves to give those tales that realmantica twist I boast of. In fifteen years I’ve lived in several states and Okinawa Japan, have moved endless times, and have endured deployments, happy reunions, and sad memorial services. I’ve lived through the dark nights and come out the other side of that endless tunnel to tell the tale. With my nest now empty I devote my time to working on my career in writing and fostering my other career in working at Rebel Ink Press. That takes up most of my time, but when I’m not doing that I enjoy a caveat of exciting things. Beach trips to watch the recon Marines doing their workouts, museums, hole in the wall book dumps, shopping for Vera Bradley accessories, lunches out with my girlfriends, and research. Yes, I love research. Well who wouldn’t when it involves all manner of naughties to include but not limited to strip clubs, tat parlors, Adam and Eve and leather stores. And let’s not forget the endless research attained through hours of reading hot romances by all the best writers?

I hope everyone enjoys being here today—I know I plan on having a good time. I’ll be featuring my Identity series through my blog posts that will include some advice on the tools of the trade and buying chairs and giving pebbles. Intrigued? Stick around things should be pretty interesting around here. If you’d like to know more about me after today you can keep up with me at . I blog regularly, have a few fantabulous guests a month (to include some of the Goddess Fish gang), and you can sign up for my newsletter there. Happy reading!

Hello Lila!
I love military characters. I think they make the best heroes. They have all of the great qualities every hero needs like: honor, courage and loyalty. Sometimes they are haunted by their past military experience. I think it makes the character more interesting and vulnerable.

Hi girls! Thanks for stopping by and having a read. :) Some writer friends and I are writing a series of anthologies about a host of military characters entitled the Force Recon series. Stacie, book 2 will be out in September and might be up your alley. I've done something I've never done before and I've seen done very little--my military characters is a female marine, and she's quite haunted by a unique military experience. Keep an eye out for Force Recon: Somalia--details will come out on my website: :)

A healthy dose of realism in romance is a good thing. I like being swept off my feet by an amazing story and equally great characters but sometimes I do want to be grounded just so that I can believe it is possible such a story can happen to me. Looking forward to reading your posts.
