Fiction Craft at Sturgis West

I just wanted to thank everyone who welcomed me at Sturgis West – I had a fantastic time and many thanks to Laurie Carah who wanted me to come in and “warp minds” in the first place. I also loved meeting the English teachers and it looks like I will be returning in the fall. […]

Bug versus Windshield

My son puked on the bus I drive this morning, and I had no paper towels. A crack formed in the bus windshield and slowly lengthened as I drove. I managed to shrink a favorite top to my daughter’s teenaged-size (she was thrilled). It poured buckets and my parked car ended up an oasis in […]

This day rocks!

Today has been a killer day, not only because two great writers (Lisa Burstein and Jim Hill) agreed to partake in the Blog-Tour-Writing-Process-Thing (thanks Trisha Leaver!), but I also finished STORMFRONT. I could actually run around screaming at the top of my lungs, but I would freak out the neighbors . . . though they […]

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 […]

Writers Night Out – My Notes on Marketing

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 […]

#PitMad and Twitter Fun

Well – I competed in #pitmad on Twitter today. Yup – did get a request. Many thanks to Trisha Leaver for breaking out her pompoms to cheer me on! And a big thanks to all the retweets from fellow authors and some agents! #Pitmad is basically 140 characters of hell in which you pitch your […]

Author Event and Book Signing! HELP!

You know why I write? Because it allows me to be invisible . . . somewhat. I can tell these elaborate whoppers in literary form and hide behind the pages. And people like to be told tall tales – who’d thunk it? Of course, once the story is out (and you inadvertently gain some hard-core […]

Meet the UNDERTOW cast – Ana Lane

Every character in UNDERTOW has their own back story – not just little details, but HUGE stories. I wrote it that way so that readers would connect with multiple characters and not just Eila and Raef. As book review blog Twin Spin writes, “Although there was one main character in Eila, there was a great and […]

Meet the UNDERTOW cast – Christian Raines

In searching for faces to represent UNDERTOW, there were a couple of characters that I didn’t really think I would even try to find. For one, I knew no one who could fit the bill for either Christian Raines or Rilin West. Secondly, they were “big reveal” characters, therefore I was unsure if I could […]
