The Art of the Blurb

As A ReaderOn Sunday evenings, I load my Nook with short stories for my daily commute. I search using key phrases for what I like. Often times, I get what I expected. But some times, I get what I didn't want. Neither the tags nor the blurb led me to a story I wanted to read. This can be very frustrating as it means that my nightly writing time is comprised by having to search for additional reading material for my 45 minute train ride to my day job.As A Self Published WriterI try very hard to…See More

Betrothed by Vallory Vance

My interracial historical romance, Betrothed, is in the hands of the editor and I'm anxiously awaiting the mock up from the cover artist. This novella was sparked by an idea after researching my own family lines that cast a light on race relations in the antebellum south that was very different from those portrayed…See More

Historical Interracial Romance - Short Story

This weekend, I was supposed to outline a new novella and start working on two holiday themed short stories. Instead, I transcribed an 1865 labor contract between my Hathorn family and their former owners, also the Hathorn family (in my other life, I'm a family historian).An idea came to me and would not leave…See More

Inspired By Words

This week, I've been busy working on my latest novella and getting plans finalized for summer break with the family. The one thing that goes when I get super busy is reading. I have a back log of books that I want to read because I'm anxious to discover the pictures painted by the words of an author.My language is a common prostitute that I turn into a virgin. ~ Karl KrausOne of my favorite quotes. It describes the job of a writer - to speak everyday language for the first time.Check out my…See More

The Name Game

I've been working on a new I/R romance novella and the hero is still nameless. When I started this work a few weeks ago, his name was Caleb Wagner. As I worked through the piece and started writing, I realized that was not his name at all. It didn't ring true coming out of the heroine's mouth. I searched for a list of 1977 baby names and latched on to Stephen for a while and then switched to Joshua. None of these is right and I'm at a loss at what to do now.I think I'm going to have to write…See More

A Naughty Reader's Boudoir

Stop by A Naughty Reader's Boudoir for an interview with me about why I write what I write and an excerpt from In The Moment, an interracial romance set in Texas.This story was penned under the name Vallory Vance. I have always wanted a pen name and hopefully in about a hundred years people will feel so smart because they know that Vallory Vance's real name was Teicha Hill Mailhes. I call it the Samuel Clemens'…See More
