So, it’s been a while. I know. I look back at my last post – Oct. 2016! – and even then I’d said it’d been a while. And I explained what was going on, why I’d basically gone off-grid with my writing and publishing. So much has changed since then, and I’m happy to say, mostly for the better. After several months of struggle with giving up my home, depending on family more than I ever have, and pulling myself out of some of the deepest pits of depression I’ve ever been in (which is saying a lot), I’ve launched into … Continue reading

After staring at a blank screen for a ridiculous amount of time today, my itchy fingers banged out some words about what I want to write since I couldn’t figure out how to actually write it.

I caught myself doing something absolutely horrible the other day, and it made me wonder how often I do it without realizing. So I’ve been paying more attention for the last few days and am appalled at myself. Now I wonder if I’m the only one or if others have fallen into this same self-defeating trap. Before I can tell you what crime I’ve been committing, let me explain a little about the life of an author. These days, whether self-published, indie published or trad-published, being an author is a business. If we don’t think of ourselves as a business … Continue reading

Probably one of the best things about my job is reading the fan mail that lands in my inbox. Every single little note, even if it’s just a question about the next book, makes my day a little brighter. I especially love to hear how my books have made a non-reader into an insatiable book fanatic. My other favorite type of fan mail comes from other writers, asking me questions and requesting any advice I can give. A common question is about naming characters…and other things I’ve made up. Almost every name, whether for a character or something I’ve created, … Continue reading
