A Lost Book is Sad

Watching movie trailers usually leads to more books on my reading list. Case in point, Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. I saw the preview on a Friday night date; Saturday morning, I had the book by the same name check out with my library card. I’m not scared enough of the Young Adult section to […]

Ohmy Ima Beta

My First Experience as a Beta Reader The term ‘beta reader‘ is completely new to me. All I knew about “beta” was the fish and beta testing video games and computer programs. I am published through a small press with two internal editors. Until very recently, I hadn’t realized there were different kinds of editors: […]

Halloween Thrills

Happy Halloween Halloween on a Wednesday doesn’t lend its self to a big night of hell-raising. (I’ve got work the next day.)

As I have mentioned before, I am currently collaborating with the GoodReads Group: Paranormal & Horror Lovers. In May, I initiated […]

New Release, New Anxiety

Where as with my first novel – maybe because it was my first – the release seemed to stay at some undefined future date; my second quickly debuted, leaving me feeling unprepared. Thrush, is of a completely different vein than my […]

Redlines are Encouragement

I have been writing lately and it feels good. Even published, I still only write when the mood hits. Perhaps if I was a full-time author with deadlines decreed from a huge publishing house, I would stress more and have hard deadlines. But I don’t think I would enjoy it as much. I write because […]
