After building a Fortress of Solitude from books in her to-be-read pile, Jami Gold moved to Arizona and decided to become a writer, where she could put her talent for making up stuff to good use, including winning the 2015 National Readers’ Choice Award in Paranormal Romance for Ironclad Devotion.

Fueled by chocolate, she writes paranormal romance and urban fantasy tales that range from dark to humorous, but one thing remains the same: Normal need not apply. Just ask her family—and zombie cat.

That's why I have a whole blog geared toward writers, with hundreds of articles about plot, characters, scenes, character growth, etc. (at http://jamigold.com/blog/ and check the sidebar for a search box and menu of post topics).

My first piece of advice would be to embrace the learning curve. Don't expect to go into writing and be able to learn everything--and then be done learning. Nope...the learning goes on forever--think *journey* not *destination*. ;)(less)

I love being a writer for *many* reasons! :) But my favorite part is getting to know my characters.

I write "organically," meaning that I don't know very much about my story before I start, and I end up writing by the seat of my pants. So for me, writing a story is like making a new best friend, as I learn about my characters: their likes and dislikes, their personality, etc. And then I get to see them grow into their potential over the course of the story--fun!(less)

Crafting a Relationship That Matters — Guest: Angela Ackerman

Here's the latest from Jami Gold, Paranormal Author :



Different stories have different goals. Some care more about making us think, and others care more about making us feel. Some focus more on the plot, and others focus more on the characters. And so on.





Sometimes those goals are driven by our genre. For example, the romance genre usually strives to make readers connect and care about the character

If you've heard of this book, it's likely because of one of two reasons. One, because it won the RITA (and was the first win for a Black author in the contest, ever *sigh*). Two, because it's a hard read due to graphic abuse on the page.

Woo boy, this series... Romances about survivors of a school shooting? Not a fluffy subject to be sure, and it's hard to believe the series even exists, but I'm glad it does.
