Writing Real Characters

So, lately I’ve not been here, on my blog, because I am trying to get the final edits to CRUEL SUMMER done, so you can get your hot little hands on Kian, Ana, and MJ on March 16th, 2015 at the Girl Power Author Panel (deets to come). But I needed to squeeze in some […]

HAPPY LAUNCH DAY TO CREED

A very VERY happy launch day to debut writers Trisha Leaver and Lindsay Currie who throw their creepy horror thriller CREED out into the huddled masses T-O-D-A-Y! MY REVIEW can be found here: CREED Go get it – I dare ya to put the sucker down!

Why a NYT Bestselling author gave the money back.

I get asked all the time about being a self-published author. Why I did it, how hard was it, etc. I did it for many reasons, but like Karen Traviss,  I too was a professional journalist for nearly 20 years. I was paid to write the story THEY WANTED ME TO WRITE. With UNDERTOW, I […]

I could actually run around screaming at the top of my lungs, but I would freak out the neighbors . . . though they […]

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 […]
