Fall Is Upon Us

This is my favorite time of year. The changing of colors. Preparation for the fall and winter holidays. Fall offers a slew of colors and a homey feeling. Who doesn’t love snuggling under a blanket with a warm beverage and a book? This year I’ve read a lot for enjoyment and/or beta/critiques. My Goodreads Reading Challenge is set at 45 […]

A Guide to Self-Publishing on Amazon

We all have that story to tell, and then when we’re finished, we have no idea where to go from there. Because of my naiveté, I signed a contract with my editor at the time, who was starting her own company and paid a lot of money. Waste of money and I didn’t get it back. I fired her, learned […]

Which type of reader and/or writer are you?

It’s been some time since I’ve talked about writing. This year, I have stepped back from it to focus on other facets of my life. But, writing is what started my past and present blogs. It’s also something I still do without taking it seriously… for now. Through years of discussions with other writers and reading, I’ve come to the […]

What Makes Writers Scream

Question: Are you still writing? Answer: Nope. I stopped when the circus came to town. They needed a roadie so I figured why not. I could use the experience in case I don’t become a NYT Bestselling Author, I receive an eviction notice, or I’m eating out of restaurant garbage bins. The skills will open the doors for me to […]

Revision Decisions

I’m a non-traditional writer, who doesn’t follow a specific writing process or has ever declared, “I’d die if I couldn’t write.” My muse is most likely an old, witty, drunken fool, disgruntled about age or lack of funds. Or maybe I’m confusing it with my guardian angel. Anyways, I don’t have a set writing practice; I do what works for […]
