Working, Working, Working…

So, I would say that unless you’re a big time author who has been on the bestsellers list multiple times, you probably have a day job and when you get home, writing or editing, or formatting is the LAST thing that is on your mind. If you’re anything like me, sleep is the first thing […]

New Author Friends

So, lately, I’ve been trying out some new promotional methods, trying to find one that suits me. I’m not one for shoving my book down their throat telling them that it’s the best thing since sliced bread and all that and well, posting in all different Facebook groups like some people do is also annoying […]

Setting a To-Do List

So, sometimes it seems that things are awry and you just don’t know where to begin. For example, today, I had a lot to do and it was all over the place. I needed to call work, call Verizon, format Dance with Darkness, get that book cover finished and so much more. What really helped […]

Dance with Darkness

So, there have been a few changes to Dance with Darkness – for one, it will not be published by Kingsnake Publishing, but instead by me. I won’t say anything bad about them because they are a good company and the group that I was in had people talking about more than Kingsnake things. It was […]

SALE!

So, a lot of authors offer their books for FREE or for $0.99! Let’s give you some examples! Maybe you would be interested in buying an ecopy to help support an indie author – DON’T FORGET TO LEAVE A REVIEW!!! Click the author’s name to be directed to their Facebook page and the book titles […]

Getting Involved

When you’re starting to write your first book, you’re probably very lost. The indie author community is HUGE – literally – containing thousands of authors who self publish and do a lot of things on their own, but that’s nothing to worry about. Most of the authors I have come in contact with are rather […]

Quick Write

Sometimes taking a break from what you’re working on to do a quick writing sprint to work on something else gives your mind a break. I did that today and I loved it. Here’s what I wrote in about 20 minutes. I’m thinking the start of a new story! Tell me what you think then […]

Blog on Blog

Yes – my topic for today is about having a blog – while I’m on my blog. Makes sense, right? Well, I’ve recently started this blog and well, I honestly didn’t think that I would keep up with it since I have had so many in the past and well, let’s just say that I’ve […]

Minimizing Distractions

As we’re writing, there are many things that would pull you away from actually writing – I’m someone guilty of spending way more time on Facebook and on their games than writing or paying more attention to whatever is on netflix at the time. I’m so guilty of all of the above, but when you […]

Writing with Emotions

So many people have told me that they can’t write because something happens and their emotions take over and they just can’t – their boyfriend/girlfriend broke up with them, someone passed away, job promotion where they’re too excited, or they get distracted. If you’re the last one, please wait until the next blog post is […]

Creating an Author Page/Blog

When I first started in the indie author community, I had no idea what I was doing. I was lost other than writing – something I knew that I loved. Well, there’s a question that haunts many people that are just starting out. “I’m not published, but should I create an author page/blog?” In my […]

Book Covers

So for me, my book covers are always something that I think reflects the story well, whether it has the main characters or shows an event that happened in the story. The thing is to make something that will stand out – something that will make someone in a bookstore pause to at least glance […]

Opinions Needed

So, I kind of write while I’m at work, keeping the gears in my head turning and I came up with close to 700 words of a new idea. The only thing is that it’s completely out of the box to what I’m use to – that being Fantasy and Romance – and this one […]
