Ash Krafton's poetry and short fiction have appeared in several journals, including Niteblade, Bete Noire, Abandoned Towers, and Silver Blade. Ms. Krafton resides in the heart of the Pennsylvania coal region and lurks near her blog (http://ash-krafton.blogspot.com). No surprise she is still hard at work writing-- the Books of the Demimonde (BLEEDING HEARTS, BLOOD RUSH, WOLF'S BANE) are available through Pink Narcissus Press, while STRANGER AT THE HELL GATE and WORDS THAT BIND can be found at The Wild Rose Press.

She also writes New Adult speculative fiction as AJ Krafton. Her upcoming titles include TAKIN' IT BACK and FACE OF THE ENEMY. Her début, THE HEARTBEAT THIEF was released in June 2015 and has already become an Amazon bestseller.

It's such an amazing feeling—if I see a comment on Twitter or Goodreads, I get so jazzed. Those little connections make me feel like I created something that matters. When readers like what they read and talk about it, I feel like the person I'd written the story for had finally found it.(less)

Always persevere.

There is a huge learning curve in the beginning and I think a lot of us go into this business with an established set of expectations. Trouble is, the first lesson you learn is to forget what you think you know.

Take time to observe others who are ahead of you on the path to publication. Learn from their highs and their lows. Learn the craft of writing. Learn the ins and outs of the business itself. Reset your expectations and the keep writing, keep submitting, keep getting your stories out there.

Just persevere.(less)

It's an experiment in more ways than one: I've never posted a full-length story on Wattpad before, let alone something that hasn't been scoured and shredded by my trusted beta readers. So why am I doing it?I think it has to do with the impulsivity of it all. O... Read more of this blog post »
