Writer’s block…first there is the debate on whether or not it exists. Debate ended: It does. If it didn’t, it wouldn’t be the dreaded disease that plagues every writer on the planet. Those who have experienced it knows it prevents your creativity from flowing and brings your writing to a grinding halt. It’s not being lazy, it’s just misunderstanding what it really is. As writers, we all experience it at one time or another and we all know it’s the downside of being an author…or is it? Believe it or not, I believe I have found the cure for Writer’s Block! (more…)
Again, I am blessed to have such amazingly talented friends!!! I met Trish Albright about 2 years ago at an RWA meeting and purchased her first book, and over the last couple of years, we only met on one or two other occasions. I had the pleasure of spending a lot more time with her at the recent RT convention and she is just a joy to be around…truly a kindred spirit.
Having a little more time on my hands recently, I was able to DEVOUR her romantic adventure, “Siren’s Song” and could not put the book down! Wow! What a page-turner! No exaggeration here, it was a fabulous adventure! (more…)
Continuing my blogs on my experience at the Romantic Times Book Lover’s Convention 2009 (in Orlando, FL), it was my greatest pleasure to speak with so many writers about the craft and the process in which people craft their own stories. I LOVE to hear all the ways that people come up with their story ideas and what brings them to that last page where they type our favorite words….THE END.
I realize the publisher will be the one to design the cover, but I’m a visual kinda gal and I like to SEE things happening! So, I’ve designed a new cover for my first book – MIDNIGHT CONQUEST. Why? Well, though I like what I did before, it doesn’t LOOK like a paranormal romance. While at the RT convention, I saw the covers that immediately drew me to them because they LOOKED like a paranormal romance novel. So, I don’t think there will be any mistaking this for anything BUT a paranormal romance… (more…)
I had the pleasure of meeting a profound artist at the Romantic Times Book Lover’s Convention by the name of Robert Quill. Charming, witty, talented and downright hilarious, Robert was a joy to meet and converse with. I loved hearing his voice – a kind of cross between rogue and tv announcer.
Genella and I are friends because I enjoy her ideas and what she writes…outside of the fact we also have so much in common. THANKFULLY I don’t have one of those friendships with her where I adore her, but I hate her writing. What a conundrum that would be! “Gee, Genella…um…cute story?” I’m blessed with a very talented friend who knows how to tell a good story and she never fails to yank those tears from me! (more…)
Sorry no recent updates! Been busy getting ready for the upcoming Romantic Times Book Lover’s Convention! Even though I’m very much looking forward to the event, I don’t think the excitement of it has hit me just yet. I’m running around like a crazy woman getting all my promotional materials and give-aways made and ready for the event. More on that in just a moment. (more…)
I love my story MIDNIGHT CONQUEST, but since I’ve been working on this story for 17 years, I think I’m ready to puke on it! I understand the editing process and what one needs to do to get a book to publication. I’ve had several technical manuals, marketing materials and web sites published to know that true enough AND I’ve seen friends go through the process. However, in my recent experience with returning my revisions to The Wild Rose Press, I’ve discovered that I have a blind eye to the mistakes I am making. I wrote “passion” or some form of that word at least 10 times in two pages! I did this even though I re-read the pages AT LEAST five times. I’m usually pretty good about something repetative like that, but it’s clear I’m not seeing things like that on this project. I think there are two reasons why… (more…)
Can you believe it!?! You can now buy Midnight Conquest merchandise at our CafePress.com store…among a few other things! I’ll have more items up in the store and with the way things are growing, we’ll end up opening a separate CafePress.com store instead of just being a section in the Enchanted Woodz store. Check them out and express your vampy self!!
