A Writer Looks at 40

I think I know just how Jimmy Buffet felt when he wrote that song. I came onto the indie publishing world long after it had already reached its peak, when the pioneers were now the role models for success and the market was flooded daily with new authors seeking to make their mark. I’ve only…

Changing with the Seasons

It’s been a long time, Dear Reader, and I see you shiver in antici… …pation. So do I. Or maybe it’s trepidation. Or frustration. Some kind of -ation, certainly. Time always passes, the seasons running through their cycle, and the speed at which it marches by is staggering, the relentlessness of which I didn’t realize…

Standing Before Greatness

I believe in signs and omens…in great messages from beyond that point you the way you were meant to go. Maybe it’s my superstitious roots. Maybe it’s my need to believe in destiny. Who knows? The point is, I believe. I thought that attending Apollycon this past March would be the sign I needed to…

Beware the Ides of March

Beware the Ides of March… It didn’t escape my attention that the month of March might be hexed. Mercury went into retrograde on the day we set the clocks forward and lost an hour of our lives to the void. And a mere week later, the Ides of March are upon us. Et tu, Harper?…

Bitter or Better?

As a writer, have you ever read something so amazingly well written that you question all your career choices? A book or a series that’s so well crafted, so intricate… so entirely beyond that you look at your own work and try to reason why your own drivel would even warrant a place on the…

It’s Been a Long Day…

…without you, my friend. And I’m finally able to sit down and tell you all about it. I actually haven’t told you anything since August and actually, the final act of 2018 was such a whirlwind that I can’t even remember what happened to throw me so off the rails. Suffice to say Fall and…

Everyone Loves a Bad Boy…

Yeah, yeah. Heroes are great and all. But today, we’re talking about villains. They say that villains often see themselves as the heroes of the stories, which is part of what makes them so fascinating. Today, my fellow paranormal romance authors and I are discussing our absolute favorite villains and what makes us love to hate…

The Dog Days of Summer

It’s August, right in the dead heat of the summer and this is the season I live for. The dog days of summer are my idea of heaven and it doesn’t hurt that this is also my birthday month. I don’t relish getting older, but who is going to pass up a chance at celebrating…

Mexico, Magic & Motivation

I’m back from my Western Caribbean cruise and I feel refreshed, rejuvenated and inspired. It’s amazing how creatively stifling technology -and, in particular, social media- can be.  I thought I knew how weighed down I’d gotten, but apparently that was just the beginning…the tip of the oppressive iceberg. I’d hit the thing head on and…

Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days…

Summer break is at full swing at last, I only wish I could say the same about my current manuscript. I can’t blame the sun, the sand or the siren’s song of the ocean for distracting me from my work, but they are certainly enabling my current creative malaise. I’ve been doing my best to…
