Amey Zeigler Amey Zeigler's blog:
I have seen a trend lately in books series where book one doesn't really stand alone, rather it feels like part one of a larger story. It doens't have its own arc, or climax. Each story is a continuation of the last story. It seems more like a serial, book one stops the action with no resolution.... Read more of this blog post »

Tomorrow I hit the road to go visit my parents. My kids are so excited to see Grandma and Papa. Well, mostly they want to see the chickens Papa is raising.

A common question authors are asked is, "where do you get your ideas?" It's a funny question; it's the equivalency of asking a bird, "where do you look for materials for your nest?", or a bee, "where do you go for flowers to pollenate?"

For authors, ideas are just sort of... there. Sometimes there... Read more of this blog post »
