How to be the Book Boyfriend she’s always wanted

I'd be the first to admit that I tend to write the men I wish I knew. But, that doesn't mean they don't have flaws. Every hero has to have those, and I know things get confusing for our make believe lovers. So, if I had to make a list, and, for my purposes, I'm... Continue Reading →

Monday Musings: “Your Books Are So Good, I Shouldn’t Have to Pay for Them.”

It is work, and no one should have to just give away their labor. That’s called slavery, if you think about it.

And So On...

This happened to an author of my acquaintance. She got an email from a “fan” and the gist of it was this:

Head in the clouds, feet on the ground

Cry Havoc is in production, I promise. It's become clear, however that the next series in the universe I've build around the Carry Bell is purely scifi young adult. There may be some romantic elements, I don't know yet. But, the main characters are kids trying to survive a war together. It's not going to... Continue Reading →

How to be an author in just minutes…

I have a few peeves. One of them is the habitual click bait articles now peopling the internet that basically say, "if you're an author, you've been doing it all wrong!" I really, really hate that. First, there is no wrong way. You are either doing it, or you aren't. If you are, you're producing... Continue Reading →
