Have a Beer with Fear

The original intent of this entry was to discuss my greatest writing fear. This is a concept that's been on my plate for over a month now, and the problem that I arrived at as I turned this over in my head was that it was nearly impossible to narrow it down. There are so many different possible writing fears that naming just one would be impossible.

There is, for example, the fear…

Devil Will Care Release

I'm happy to announce that Devil Will Care is available. This is the first in the Lacunae Grimore series. Here's the synopsis:


Ember hasn't had a date in over a year… and couldn't care less. During that time, she's been in love with a beautiful dream who slips in as a shadow and fills her nights with uncomplicated adoration. She doesn't realize this is just a precursor to many astounding revelations and her entire world is about to change.

"The Moon Sees Me," now in print!

The suspense novel The Moon Sees Me is finally available in paperback! Here's the synopsis:

She remembers what happened that night, but the doctor said her mind couldn't be trusted. The physician says they aren't memories, just hallucinations, mere by-products of a head injury. She knows there is more to that night than what they're telling her. Clarissa Tyler came from a good home with loving parents and a wide circle of friends. She, and her…

Around the Globe with OPHELIA JULIEN

Finally, we get a little rain try to cool off things around here, but I'm off to the land of cheese with this week's featured author. She gives me directions and soon we're basking in chairs a stone's throw away from Green Bay (the water, not the town) sipping cool refreshments.

1. Who is Ophelia Julien and what makes you the most fascinating person in your city?

I'm still trying to figure out who I am myself! At the moment, I'm a writer/student/grandmother raising a… Continue

TWITTER 101 By Guest Blogger TERRI MAIN!!!!

I am so thankful that Terri Main has let me post her wonderful article about Twitter!!!  I hope you find it as useful as I did!  THANKS TERRI!!!


TWITTER 101 by Terri Main

First, think about twitter like a scaled down facebook with just a newsfeed. Each status is just 140 characters. It's an announcement service so to speak, although what you are announcing may range from how you are feeling to prayer requests to a new blog post to a sales message (be careful of…

Fourteen Days Later inspires real events and a YouTube video!


Oh, wow, I had to share this with you! It's always sooo fab to get emails from readers who've enjoyed my books, but I was recently contacted my Mimi Ikonn who had read my romantic comedy Fourteen Days Later and took everything one step further!

The idea behind Fourteen Days Later is that the main character, Helen, is stuck in a rut after a bad… Continue

I'll huff and I'll puff...

Maybe it's because the 3 little pigs is my daughter's favorite story right now, but I spent the weekend with several other authors (some self-published and some published through big publishing houses) and now I can't get thoughts of the big bad wolf out of my head.  Let's face it. We, as authors, are all just like these little piggies. We just want to make our own way in this world, set up houses for ourselves, and live happily ever after.  But the big bad wolf of…

Brothers In Arms

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for slash fiction.  Everyone's got their fantasies.  You know Buffy's not the only one having those dreams about Spike and Angel.  Read Pride/Prejudice (Ann Herendeen), and you'll never look at Mr. Darcy the same way again.

So, Kirk/Spock, Sam/Frodo, whatever floats your boat.  It's none of my business.  But recently, I came across a list of popular slash pairings, and I have to ask, what's with all the brothers?  As a Vampire Diaries fan, I can get behind a… Continue

In the End: A Word or Two About Endings

So yesterday I talked about writing a good beginning, leading with peril. Today I’m going to look at the trickier question of what makes a good ending. You see, where there’s a fairly straightforward formula for a beginning, endings aren’t quite that easy. A lot of it is based on the dictates of the story itself, not to mention trying to put an original spin on something that’s been done…

Who can you run to – who can you trust

Last night I connected with Lori Finnila on blog talk radio – L J Productions – Women Empowerment Show. Along with Tammy Gagnon the Author of the book ‘No Longer Silent’

Three people got it together with one goal in mind, helping others to recover from abuse. Sadly this is a real problem out there for so many people; the abuse may differ, but the horrendous fallout is always so shocking. Some of our kids live daily with fear dread and terror. How can we help? We can raise the level… Continue

As we grow, we plan to take several opportunities to showcase the varied and talented people in the group. We will hit it hard over the next couple of days, hopefully gaining some new exposure and introducing you to writings you…
