Richard B. Knight Richard B. Knight's blog:
Being an indie author ain’t easy. With new indie books being released every day, it’s pretty hard to get noticed. So hard, in fact, that one might think, what’s the point at all? Well, the point is that you love writing and you want to continue doing it. But how are you going to get the attention... Read more of this blog post »

When I wrote my first novel, the advice I heard the most was, “Write what you know.”

I grew up outside of Silver Creek, Nebraska. Population 500. My high school graduating class was twenty-three. I went to college on an art scholarship. Oh and by the way, that college was a Catholic all-women’s c... Read more of this blog post »

I made my move to Atlanta. I took that 800 mile journey, found an apartment and I also found a part time job to help me offset my moving expenses. Life was good.

After six months of apartment living I was ready to buy a home, but I had no money saved up, I had maxed out most of my credit... Read more of this blog post »

So girl fights... not just the kind of catty verbal back and forth sparring that can happen sometimes, but like a skin scratching brawl. Yes, some very cheesy (most likely written by men) movies feature them, but it is always from such a gross and chauvinistic point of view.

The harder I look, the more the possible edits multiply. The more I correct, the more errors the copy editors ferret out. The closer to deadline, the more impossible it seems that I can ever let the book out of my grasp. Surely there is one more fierce line to write? Fortunately the publishing pr...

Alright, this blog is dedicated to the good boy trope –but it comes with a catch: good boys that don’t bore my brain out. Yea, I went there. Because while I fully admit to being villain/bad boy-biased there are times an author has convinced me to be team #GoodBoy, and to me those are fully mem...
