Winter, Winter Go Away

You would think as a writer that I would like winter. It would allow me to hide away and write. Well, not this year. We have had an extremely harsh winter in my area of the world and it has been dragging me down. And mood impacts writing. So I'm officially writing this post as... Continue Reading →

New Year Brings New Writerly Ideas

As we all wave at 2021 in our rearview mirrors, I look forward to (fingers crossed) a much better 2022. And for this writer a new year means new ideas. A few weeks ago I posted about stories I'd been working on. Story one is off with some beta readers right now. Story two, that... Continue Reading →

The Like Edit

I've talked in the past about the numerous edits that take place for a story. You write the manuscript and then you go through it again and clean it up. It goes out to beta readers who give you their opinions and then it's off to your editor. For me, that normally means a developmental... Continue Reading →

How an Author Tempts You

The hope of any author is to write a story that tempts the reader to continue on. To read about the compelling characters and amazing plot and want to see where it leads.

New Ideas Mean New Stories?

I've been trying to come up with a new idea for a book for quite some time now. I forgot how hard it is to start off a new series from scratch, but since I finished my demon series this year, it's time for something new. Actually, let me rephrase that - coming up with... Continue Reading →

Celebrate Book Lover’s Day

I was trying to think of a blog subject to write about, and I saw that today is Book Lover's Day. How can an author not point that out? My mother was a book lover and she passed on the love of story to me right from the beginning. Book love turned into writing love... Continue Reading →

Writers Keeping in Touch

Over the past year, I've missed going to writer conferences and seeing my fellow authors. There's something energizing about being with a group of writers and spending time together. It helps to recharge the creative juices. But we've found a way to persevere by scheduling monthly on line calls. I'm actually 'seeing' my writer friends... Continue Reading →
