Writing and Marketing…

One of the many, many things I was naïve about before entering my writing and publishing journey is marketing. Yes, I knew I would have to do it. I would need to pay for ads, create teasers, make a launch packet, and so forth. I didn’t realize how much work and effort goes into creating…

New Journey

I took an incredibly long hiatus from blogging to pursue my first love of writing…well, novel writing. The first novel is complete and has been sent to my copy editor. The second novel was completed in January and is with the developmental editor. I don’t want to share too much about each book since I…

Apologies

I feel I owe an apology for not posting anything lately. Honestly, the last month has been a bit of a shit show for me. No one thing has went wrong but numerous small things…like going from two cars to one with both my husband and I working or attempting not to murder my elderly…

Book Review: Ear Candy by M.E. Carter and Andrea Johnston

Review: Thanks for Andrea Johnston for an ARC of this book. As the norm, it doesn’t disappoint. I laughed so hard my sides hurt. The things Todd said and wore…completely hilarious. The pineapple and jingle balls t-shirts are hilarious. Donna Moreno was a lawyer until she left it to be an erotic romance writer full…

My birthday…

This may be a surprise but I hate my birthday–always have. Even as a little girl, I hated it. It doesn’t help that we never really celebrated birthdays…except with my grandparents. My grandparents would have my parents, and brothers over for dinner with a homemade birthday cake and a present. Sometimes, that was the only…

Book Review: Work in Progress by Staci Hart

   This is the fourth or fifth book of Hart’s that I’ve read. I absolutely love her writing. This book give a new twist to the author/book blogger relationship. I did have a few reservations while reading beginning with Amelia’s shyness disorder and lack of socialization issues. She has a circle of friends yet none…

Back from my hiatus….

I took a bit of a break from all things electronic–not all things, I kept my Kindle. But I shut everything else off. It was pretty nice too. The only down fall is my email is packed, and I’ve been having panic attacks from not writing. So today, I’m digging in to write, write, and…

Life in transition…

I feel that everything in my life is in complete limbo. I’m between jobs which makes me even more anxious than usual. I decided to return to my true north passion–writing. Here’s one huge problem with that. It doesn’t make money. I mean, yes eventually or if my name is Stephen King or J.K. Rowling…

Writing and life….

This month has been an enlightening experience. It started out as just completing NaNoWriMo just to see if I could complete it. Instead, I realized how much I miss writing on a daily basis. It is something that has been missing from my life. I walked away from it a few years ago to teach…
