Know the market, and just understand that things go in cycles. But just because vamps don't work now, doesn't mean they won't work in six months. SO just WRITE. Stop worrying about what might be. Finish your book. And then get it out there for submissions. And while that is going on, start working on the next one. (less)

Thanks Twitter

The power of social media never fails to amaze me. It’s the reason I have a Steampunk novella in A Riveting Affair. Late one Saturday night, I took a break from writing and checked out Twitter. I happened to see a tweet from Entangled Publisher @Liz_Pelletier who wanted Steampunk stories for an anthology.

I need to back up at this point and explain the deal the universe and I have. The universe pr Read more of this blog post »

“Every girl needs a bit of whimsy to remind her that life is a game and it's all about having fun.”
Candace Havens, Take It Like a Vamp

“Fangs in an amusement park were just bad form.”
Candace Havens, Take It Like a Vamp

“Something fell and George was off, barking like a mad dog. What if whoever is back there hurts him?
Oh. My. Goodness. If I do die, I can do so happily now. That man’s eyes were so blue—and I swore they changed color.
“I made a huge mistake,” Jake said as he took the leash off of George. “I said p-i-z-z-a out loud. And he took off at a fast jog all the way back here from the park right through Ms. Helen’s sprinklers down the street.”
And then nothing…no words entered my brain. I sniffed and quickly nodded, like I was about to cry. “Okay. Right. Amen.”
Then I forced myself to slow down and not run back to my seat.”
Candace Havens, A Case for the Yarn Maker

“He turns me inside out with a look, destroys me with a kiss.”
Tracy Wolff, Crave

“I can see something in his eyes. Something powerful and terrible and all-consuming.”
Tracy Wolff, Crave

“Everyone answers to me...eventually.”
Tracy Wolff, Crave

“And just like that, Jaxon strikes. Hands grabbing, fangs flashing, body wrapping itself around me so quickly, I barely understand what’s happening. He whirls me around—my back to his front—tangles his hand in my hair, and pulls my head back.”
Tracy Wolff, Crave

“Nothing to do but admit that—obnoxious smirk or not—this boy is sexy af. A little wicked, a lot wild, and all dangerous.”
Tracy Wolff, Crave
