Keeping Secrets

This post is going to have some spoilers about The Secrets He Kept, so if you haven’t read it yet and don’t want to read spoilers, you might want to save this post and read it later. In a review or two, and quite often when I speak with someone who’s read the book, a common comment or question is something […]

Dan Kolbet's visiting today to talk about his new book!

I am super excited to welcome Dan Kolbet to the blog today to talk about his new book, Better Not Love Me. I had the pleasure of reading this book, as well as the book that came before it, Don’t Wait For Me. Dan is, in his own words, an accidental romance author who writes some amazing books. Today, he’s talking about Better Not Love […]

Holiday Planning

I’ve been doing my holiday planning, working out the details of the meals, and when to Christmas shop, and putting holiday parties on the schedule. I realized one day late last week that while I’ve been working on my personal planning, I completely forgot about professional holiday planning: holiday marketing promotions. I spent the weekend toying with some ideas, and […]

Uncooperative characters

I shared a little about my current work in progress a few weeks ago. Naturally, after I shared that, my characters decided they weren’t happy with their lives as they were – nor were they happy with the situations I was throwing at them.

That part of the book prompted me to consider the ways […]

Seeking: Creativity and Motivation

Tangled Deceit will be on sale next week!

It hit me this morning that last week was the two year anniversary of when I published my first book, Tangled Deceit. I’ve had so much going on that the actual date passed me by without me even realizing it, so I didn’t get to mark the occasion. Which is why I’m going to do it now. Starting Sunday, July […]

Taking offense over a character

I was doing some research a while ago, for an idea rolling around in my head that hasn’t quite reached the “ready to be written” point. In the course of this research, part of which took place in a discussion forum, I ran across someone who got seriously bent out of shape at the way my character was to be […]
