There isn’t a lot of advice about REpublishing your work.

I’ve been editing the first novels I ever released. The Psychic Trilogy is getting updated, and it’s more challenging than you would imagine. First of all, my brain balks at having to read them over again. They were my first and I read them a hundred times each—especially Demon’s Bond, about to become Seduced in [...]...

You want to write a Romance?

I’m not going to lie. This is about a post I saw giving some ‘basic concepts’ to writing Romance. Except what the author of the post wrote is backwards. It holds just fine if someone is writing a different story and there HAPPENS to be a romance in it, but not if you’re actually writing [...]...

Secret Babies and Stolen Goods

I write a lot of darker stories, serious issues buried behind terms like ‘erotic romance’ and ‘paranormal suspense.’ I love exploring those subterranean emotions, the things so many of us hide on a daily basis with wide smiles and gentle lies. Things like distrust and greed, perversion, obsession, unhealthy love…these things we have to face within [...]...

Magic Matched: Motherhood

  In witching society, there is a strict hierarchy. Family covens are ruled by Mothers or Fathers who hold the bulk of their bloodline’s power and archaic rules are enforced, disregarding modern sentiments. Magic and politics are the only things that matter, and marriages are arranged for advantage rather than love. Christiana Davenold doesn’t want to [...]...

Here’s some free advice for every aspiring write out there: Write a three act story. (super simplified, but you get the point, right?) Even short stories follow the format, though some have more events and others have less. Hell, even non-linear tales have this format buried somewhere in the back and forth of chapters. You [...]...

TOC drama, and how to avoid it all…

The word of the day is TOC…which really isn’t a word, but an abbreviation. Table of Contents. Why is TOC the ‘word’ of the day? Well, scammers are using them to skip to the back of their books for big payouts so Amazon has to change some things around to slow that bullshit down. (Can’t [...]...

Dust, Depression and Love

The 1930s was a difficult time for most people living in America. For those in the western and Midwest states, the Great Depression was compounded by terrible dust storms, brought on drought, which led to famine. People left the Dust Bowl in droves, because the land their families had occupied for generations no longer lent [...]...

Ten Long Years…

In the course of a decade… That’s right, a decade. Ten years. Not ‘last year’ or ‘so quickly’ or ‘slapping stories together.’ I don’t write 10,000 words a day, I’m ecstatic if I write a whole chapter. This writing thing isn’t something new, it isn’t something I just took up last year or the year [...]...

Which came first, the changeling or the champion?

I don’t know how other authors do it, but I seem to start everything out of order. Then I have to go back and write the story that should have come before. That tends to leave me with fully-written sequels I have to rewrite because I decided another book should have come first. For example, [...]...
