My Writing Process Blog Tour

I am taking part in The Writing Process Blog Tour, which is a cool way to introduce myself to other authors and readers that may not normally stumble over to my blog. Each author will offer brief insights into their writing processes and, in turn, they will introduce you to more authors. I was invited […]

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 […]

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 […]

Book Review – THESE BROKEN STARS

Only once in a while, does a book shave a few decades off my aged brain and cause me to run around screaming like a teenager, out of my mind obsessed. I tell everyone about it, down to the random lady counting her coupons in front of me at Market Basket. Really – I did, though […]

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?
