    My Book Is Ready to Be Published

    It took over a year but I wrote a book about domestic violence that I endured back in 1992 when I was in HS.  It was really HARD to write because I had to go through remembering all those horrific details that I wanted to forget.  But, I am quite pleased...

    I Am Self-published

    My novels are available via Lulu: White Chocolate and my vampire series, which I despise now and will pull from the online store.  White Chocolate is the better story, and is also available via Amazon.  Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do novel-writing since I...

    Wondrous Experience

    When I found myself unemployed last year, I took a week to read the entire Twilight series, then two to read the Anita Blake seires, another one for the Merry Gentry series (yes, I love Laurell K. Hamilton) then looked for books that did not include any vampires or fairies...

    Four, In Fact...

    Writing anything short has almost always come hard for me.  I just get so caught up in the (often dozens) of characters in my stories that it's hard for me to write anything BUT a novella or novel.  In fact, I specialize more in serials, stories which top one hundred...

    It's About Revision, Actually.

    From my first draft which took 7 weeks and had 80k words, I ended up writing an additional 14k words and expanding on several characters including the main character.  Get yourself a personal editor that you trust will argue with you and not just take a check.  It will...

    Into the West

    I started writing my novel in about 8th grade, but the ideas had been with me for years before that. If you want to get technical, I wrote a Fantasy novel, and the land it was based in could be considered my 'happy place', haha. Anyway, the book went through many revisions, and...

    I Must Be Good!

    I've written a couple actually, not that I've actually ever published any of them, sigh, it's so hard to do nowadays. I don't mind, I started writing when I was 5 and actually got a short story in a magazine sometime in my teens. I reckon I must be good for that to happen.

    I have finally found an idea for a book I think is worth reading. I won't disclose the details but the way the book will be written is a series of letters and then police reports after each one. It will be set up like a case file. At the end I may include the manuscript of the...

    A 5th literary agent has rejected my approach. This one really pissed me off, for it was one of those auto emails. This mob did not even have the common human courtesy to read it (max: 30 minutes; if intent on rejecting all and every new submission, 2 minutes). Their name...
