There is something wonderful about finding a really good review of a book I've written and published, especially since it was my first self-published effort. I have had my share of awful reviews from people who "couldn't get into the book" and a few toilet reviews from people who didn't read the...

It has finally happened. I broke the top 100 on Amazon's best seller list yesterday after Among Women was available for free. When I went to bed I was at #8 on the contemporary fiction list and #97 on the fiction list. I just took a look and what did I find: Product Details File Size: 478 KB...

It has been a busy morning. Up at 3 a.m. and decided to finish the Halloween sampler I've been working on for 3 weeks, and I did finish. It's quite lovely and unusual, especially since I don't usually do samplers. This one was special. This morning marks the 1st of 5 days that Among Women by me...

There was no help for it. It has been nearly a year since I published Among Women and the sequel needs to be told. First, it has to be written. Ideas have been plaguing me for days -- since I realize how much time I had left if I was to publish the sequel a year from the first novel -- and I couldn...

When Jon Land offered to read and review my novel, Among Women, I was a little anxious. He was after all an internationally known author and I was just the person who had read and reviewed several of his books, and not always with glowing words. I pointed out shortcomings and places where the plot...

Three more days until the end of the Preditors & Editors annual poll for the best of the best -- or at least the best of who knows about the site and nominates themselves or someone else's books, stories, articles, art work, and all things publishing online. What it really comes down to is...

There are often times when there is nothing to write about and the thought of putting down nothing or some nonsensical stream of consciousness doesn't sit right with the writer, and so they don't write, waiting for inspiration to strike or a job to come along that will foce them to write. What they...

It's not often I get a chance to plug my book, so please forgive me if I plug mine. Among Women just went live at David Wisehart's Kindle site. Take a look. Much of what goes on in jails has been sensationalized for movies, television, and novels. What really happens is very different. Orleans...

Technology makes everything easier and the Internet makes everything happen faster. What more could we want? How about people willing to stand up for what they believe is right? A writer friend recently dumped her Kindle review site because of "threats of litigation." That's Net speak...
