A Note to New Authors: You’re Never Going to Please Everyone . . . And that’s OKAY!

With a deadline looming and my kids about to be off for a week for the holiday, I should be nose to the grindstone writing Combust. But I’m not. I’m procrastinating and reading my emails since I’m so behind. And in the course of opening them up today, I was a little taken back by the first ten emails that were in my inbox. (Technically the first eight emails since the other two had to do with a dentist appointment and a school thing for my kids).  What were so important about these first seven emails other than they were […]

A note to new authors . . .

To new authors. It’s tough love time. Seriously. You need to get organized and realize it takes so much more than a great book to make it these days. If you’re confused on what to do, please feel free to keep reading. The market is inundated with books right now. It’s not just affecting you as a new author trying to break through in this chaotic world, but it’s also affecting us ‘oldies’ who have been doing it for the last five – eight years.

The things I am thankful for…

This time of year brings about a litany of comments from people about the things they are thankful for… and I’m about to add mine to the lists you see but I think it’s important to stop every once in a while and take stock…So here goes: I’m thankful for… ♥ My family.

Top 20 Things I’ve learned…

Top 20 Things I’ve learned…

It’s been 30 months since I pushed publish on Driven. 30 months of learning something new every single day. And I’m asked all the time what those things are, so I thought I’d share the top 20 things I’ve learned. Here goes…   1. Words are powerful. They can hurt. They can heal.

No author will. We know it. And yet we will always […]
