Ken Hollern Ken Hollern's blog:
There is a euphoria, for creators, when the vision first appears, and you know all that's left is the writing. The day when you can say, "that is going to be a novel."

For me, there is often not a word on a page, only a theme, and an idea on how that theme can be played into a story.

Daniel W. Cheely Daniel W. Cheely's blog:
Check out my new book! It alters from first person to third, and the third is many. The voices in the man's head move the narrative.

It's humorous and mysterious; a very different read.

Erotica is hot.

It's not just the sex scenes that have people hot under the collar. Erotica as a genre is selling in greater numbers than ever before. While FIFTY SHADES OF GREY was the breakout hit, other authors such as Sylvia Day and Megan Hart are well-known for their steamy tales as well.

One way to announce a new book release is to sponsor a newsletter send out by major literary magazines and book publishers. The cost is about $50.00 - $100.00 and you will reach as many as 5,000-7,000 subscribers on average. Also, best advise is to build up a local email list of friends, family,...

I started this one expecting something entirely different than what I read. Because of this, I almost put it down, but am so glad I did not. It is written for the younger readers – middle school level, I think – which leads to some of the simplified descriptions I ran into.
