How I Write the Darkness

We are what we write, or so I am told. Some people have been reading the advanced pages of STORMFRONT and have mentioned that some of the most potent scenes are also the darkest, which I believe is true of life. We so often remember the toughest moments, rather than the blissful ones. My mother always accused me […]

The Barnstable Patriot and Undertow.

Friday could have sucked. It could have sucked because I was dumb enough to blurt out, “SURE I’ll drive the band to Rhode Island,” when I really needed to grind through STORMFRONT. It could have sucked because the dog barfed on my new rug, but only after I realized she demolished my gloves. It could […]

Tonight the Cape Cod Writer’s Center hosted a sold out WRITERS NIGHT OUT at UNOs in Hyannis – many thanks to Dean Coe who started the ball rolling on the self-published info night and to all those who came and worked hard on it! Especially Janet, who is a part-time slave of the CCWC. We […]

Bookstores and Book Signings

I’ve had many Indie authors ask me how I landed book signings for UNDERTOW at various bookstores. The questions were the same: How did I ask them? What did I say? Who did I beg? Want the truth? I didn’t ask any of them. Instead, they asked me. Now, don’t get me wrong – I […]

The Write Space

The other day my daughter came into my office (okay – more like a walk-through, jammed between my kids’ bedrooms and our great room) and said, “Wow – your office looks worse than my locker.” Ummm . . . why yes. Yes, it does. Which got me thinking (no, not about cleaning it). I thought […]

Self-Published Marketing

Another writer once asked me why, OH WHY, did I bother with live models? They asked, “Isn’t that time-consuming? Expensive? What if the photos don’t come out right? What if the models don’t understand their characters’ emotions?” The questions went on and on . . . I simply responded, “Well, first of all, what would […]

To them all, I cannot say THANK YOU enough :) Today, I am sharing some pictures, reviews, and media from the past month. UNDERTOW released on October 13th. […]

Meet the UNDERTOW cast – Alex Duanais

If ever there was an unsung hero in the UNDERTOW insanity, it has to be Alex Duanais, our faithful photographer. I stupidly assumed I could take the photos (cue rolling on floor laughing) and thankfully John Sullivan had a photographer on standby – Alex. Young as he was, he did a fabulous job!! Shooting what […]

The 4-1-1 on Indie Distribution

I have had a lot of questions about marketing (basically how I did it with UNDERTOW). I will answer those at a later date (not because I am trying to be sneaky – I am just literally crushed for time). Instead, I wanted to convey how I released the title, because when it comes to […]
