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 […]

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 […]

All Around the Town: Tales from Bus Driver Hell

It is possible that I have been asked to write a Bombeckesque memoir about being a bus driver at least fifty times. And yes – the tales from the road could fill an encyclopdeia. But I am a professional writer (and driver) and believe it or not, my time is somewhat squeezed. So yes – […]

BOOK REVIEW: DEFIANCE by C.J. REDWINE

DEFIANCE will hold a special place in my heart since it was the first thing I ever bought on my NOOK Color (and, realizing that I am a MAC girl at heart, it is saying something that I even GOT a NOOK . . .). Aside from being my first purchase, however, it is a […]

BOOK REVIEW: THRONE OF GLASS

THRONE OF GLASS by SARAH J. MAAS A++ Brilliant! Must, MUST be read. I first heard about THRONE OF GLASS on an agent’s blog and will admit, I wasn’t instantly dying to buy it. Assassin? Eh. Glass Castle? Eh. THANK HEAVENS I DID BUY IT! Want to know just how good it was? When I got […]

BOOK REVIEW: FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS (YA Dystopian)

FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS by DIANA PETERFREUND ENGLISH TEACHERS TAKE HEED! This book should – no, MUST – be on the classroom reading list. I’d say it is best for the 8th grade and up crowd due to size, but on a reading level, it is not at all difficult. I’d dare say this […]

Book Review: UNDER THE NEVER SKY (YA Dystopian)

UNDER THE NEVER SKY BY VERONICA ROSSI Oh man – I got sucked into this one fast. First of all, I am not really a big dystopian reader (DESPITE the fact that most of the books I have been reading lately of the YA genre fall into that category). In Rossi’s novel, I found many […]

Book Review: THE SELECTION (YA Dystopian Romance)

BEWARE – A few spoilers. Not many though! THE SELECTION by Kiera Class: Right out of the box, I will say it: Absolutely worth reading. I will follow this with a warning however: It ain’t finished. Call me crazy, but I was told over and over again that any one book in a series must […]

Yes, Virginia, a school bus can go rabid.

My three-year-old sees a face on every car that crosses our path. Secretly, you see it too. The headlights are eyes, the grill a smile.  Sometimes a vehicle can be temperamental, breaking down at the most inopportune times. Sometimes we name them and cry when we sell them. Which raises a valid question: are the […]
