I am very honored to be featured on Bathsheba Dailey’s Blog! And she’s as cute as a button, too! Please be sure to stop by and leave a comment or say hello. We did a fun, short little interview. She’s been very helpful in spreading the word about my Mother’s Day book promotion and chatting with people about my books.
A little about Bathsheba:
I’ve just met Bathsheba, and in the short amount of time I’ve come to know her, she’s shown herself to be a courageous woman, being a single mom and raising three girls, and gifted with a loving heart. She’s a talented writer, too. She has a new book coming out soon, which I cannot wait to get my hands on, titled Five Year Old Death. Please click on the link or the cover to read the description and learn more about her story.
As always, please show your support of indie authors by LIKING and SHARING where you can and as much as you can. Readers will only know about us if we help each other spread the word.
In my last post we were about to breakdown our perfect hero into sections. But before we do that, we need to welcome our five heroes into the room. They’ve graciously allowed us to perform a little experimentation.
Let’s start with our hero’s personality. His personality must shine. AJ, Lisa, Arial, and Sarah like their hero with a good sense of humour, patient, committed, and good natured. While Amie likes a hero who doesn’t take himself too seriously. Amie wants her hero to let her show him how it’s really done. Amie, you naughty little girl! Continue reading →
In my experience, rules were made to be broken – I am a writer, after all. My exception to the “he needs to smile” rule is David Gandy. David doesn’t need to smile. In fact, he can just show up. Free passes all around for David.
I’m wondering about the texture of his lips in this photo. Look soft, don’t you think? Hmmm…makes a girl wonder…
And David can go ahead and scowl all he wants. I’m not sayin a damn word.
For those of you that read Jezebel’s Wish, this is Matty. For those of you that haven’t, this is Matty. Here’s the buy link: http://tinyurl.com/3b89ogb Just a little sumpthin-sumpthin for ya. You can thank me later. Continue reading →
Comment, comment, comment—don’t forget to leave your comment!
Let’s go over what we’re learned—names are important, conversation, eyeing each other, and the building of trust. You’ve got all that, right? Then let’s talk about the good stuff. That’s right—7 through 12.
7. Mouth to mouth
8. Hand to Head
9. Hand to Body
10. Mouth to Bosom
11. Hand to Erogenous Zones.
7, 9, 10, 11, and 12 are all expected—it’s Sex Ed 101. What surprises me is 8—head to hand. Continue reading →
Welcome to Part 6 of Sarah Grimm’s guest blog on the Summer Scorcher Blog Tour – Week 2. If this is your first stop, you’ll want to start at Part 1 (Sarah’s blog) and continue to Amie, Lisa, AJ, then Darlene before returning here:
I’ve heard a lot of comments by many in the publishing industry that the occupation of a writer is a lonely one. You sit at the computer (typewriter or yellow legal pad, for you nostalgic types), alone with your thoughts and the voices you hear, crafting your tales. Though that part of the process may be a solitary experience, there’s a bigger picture. I’ve been writing for many years and along the journey, there are many people a writer needs to further their career along: beta readers, critique partners, editors, publishers, cheering section, readers and more. The journey to getting published is rarely done without others and they all have their place and importance. Since I recently found my critique partner, that’s the one I’ll focus on today. (Click on the links above if you’re interested in learning more about the other people that contribute to a writer’s journey.) Continue reading →
Oh, woe is me! It’s been so bloody long since I’ve posted on one of my favorite online writing exercises. I sporadically participate in this exercise and there are always so many wonderful posts. I love to read every one of the entries. Now that I’m dedicating my Fridays to my own writing, I will do what I can to include “Write Everything“s Fiction Friday. This week:
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.
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!
