Dream Catchers: A Rockstar Romance - Chapter 1
By Sandy Lo Synopsis: Dreams come true only if you believe in them... Haley Foster never bothered to believe in herself or find her dream. Growing up with a silver spoon in her mouth, her parents gave her everything she needed except freedom. Fate steps in at the bus station when Haley bumps into Jordan Walsh, literally. His unpolished manners and rock star attitude rile her, though she is oddly drawn to him.
Leveling Up Confidence
By Steven A. Clubb This blog isn’t about informing you on a subject or giving advice. Instead, it will be a post of my self-reflection and processing my inner demons and emotions. This will probably be the start of many journal entries to help me love and respect myself.
The Marriage Proposal Doesn't Have To Be "Special" To Be Special
By Sandy Lo For as long as I can remember, people have made a big deal about wedding proposals. The women in my life would discuss how their dream proposal would go. Scenarios like taking a hot air balloon ride or making a huge public scene of the proposal at a restaurant or sporting event were thrown around.
11 Tips For Surviving Online Dating
By Sandy Lo No one likes it. Everyone is scared of it. But online dating has become a necessary evil in the world we live in. There are many reasons and theories why it's impossible to find love the "old-fashioned" way. Some say people are too afraid to make a move especially with social norms changing. Some say people are braver behind a computer or a phone screen. And that is all true. Technology has made many things in life easier, but depending how you look at it, dating might not be one of those things.
Campfire Date Night at Home [Printable Included]
By Sandy Lo There is nothing more romantic than snuggling by a fire with your significant other. But not everyone has a fireplace or backyard for a big fire pit. We certainly don't! Steven and I have an electric fireplace in our living room, but we definitely can't roast marshmallows in it and our condo just doesn't have the same effect I was looking for when I was thinking about a campfire date night.
Lovers Who Play Together Stay Together
By Steven A. Clubb Video games have been a part of my life since I was 6 years old. My brother Kenny convinced my parents to buy me a Play Station and the critically acclaimed classic game “Final Fantasy 7”. After popping in the first disc of three, I was hooked. From then on, I wanted to try any game I could get my hands on.
Valentine's Date Night At Home [Printable Included]
By Sandy Lo I know, I know, everyone says Valentine's Day is just a stupid commercial holiday to make single people feel lonely and to make women wish their men were more romantic. But even when I was single, I enjoyed Valentine's Day. In fact, I enjoy themes in general so I'm always looking forward to an excuse to have a themed evening!

Spa Date Night At Home [Printable Included]
By Sandy Lo It’s no secret that I’m a hopeless romantic. Hello, I’m a romance author for crying out loud! I thought that meant I was doomed to be disappointed in love my entire life because nothing or no one would live up to the perfect romantic scenarios I created in my head and wrote in my books.
One Year Ago Today...
By Sandy Lo The day started out like any other. That’s actually a lie, it was better than any other day. In fact, the entire year had been better than all of the rest. Everything changed last December 31st. That was when I met him. Kaiden. I was supposed to meet some asshole from a dating app for a drink. I hadn’t done much dating in my life, especially not on some crappy app that made it impossible to actually connect with someone. But it was New Year’s Eve and I was tired of being alone, so I thought 2022 would be different. I downloaded a handful of apps, swiped right on a bunch of random guys without much thought, and made a last-minute date with an attractive doctor. That is if he was even really a doctor.
By Sandy Lo Opening her eyes, Mattie saw the familiar bright blue-green water surrounding her. She heard one of the handlers describe the color as teal once. Words are fuzzy for Mattie, but she enjoys them. The sound of them, the different tones of the humans' voices when they say them. She can tell what kind of day they are having when she hears their greetings, even from the floor of her enclosure, she somehow knows.
