March Madness by Ju Ephraime

From Christina: Author Ju Ephraime stops by today to share a tidbit of history. Ever wonder where the expression “mad as a March hare” comes from? Here’s the answer.

March Madness

by Ju Ephraime

March HareThe term March Madness was coined after the European Brown Hares, who, though generally nocturnal and shy in nature, change their behavior in the spring, when they can be seen in broad daylight chasing one another around fields and meadows.

This is when the female takes her stance to mate. It is the female, not the male that makes the selection… It is she who decides as she boxes her way around the meadow, taking her time to decide which male will be the lucky one.

About Ju Ephraime: Like the European Brown Hare, Ju Ephraime says she’ll be taking her stance this spring, hoping to be seen all over the internet as she aims for best-seller status. Check out her books at her website, “All About High Heat Romance“.

Show…Don’t Tell by Ju Ephraime

From Christina: Every woman has a special heart throb, I think. Maybe a few of us have several! I know I do. While my heart and soul will always belong only to my husband, I’ll still drool over a handsome face on the silver screen, or more likely, the television screen. Today, Ju Ephraime talks about her Valentine’s crush.

Show, Don’t Tell

by Ju Ephraime

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and romance is in the air. Chocolate hearts, roses, and greeting cards are everywhere. But for me nothing will do without my true valentine. My true valentine is a man I can’t touch and can only watch on television. I watch him and my heart flutters. He’s not young, does not have a six-pack. He’s not even terribly handsome, but he knows how to use, what I’ve been told as an author, is so terribly important—show and not tell.

Boy, can that man show without ever opening his mouth once. He talks with his eyes and the tilt of his head.

Just by moving his head slightly and with the raise of an eyebrow; a squint of an eye, or a wide-eyed look, he conveys it all.
