I go back, reread what I've written so far, and edit the previous writing I've done. I take notes. I chart out the plot so far and compare it to my original idea. I sleep on it.
When all else fails, I just stop working on it for awhile. Several days. A few weeks if necessary. Because what's most important is you producing something you can be proud of and confident in sharing with the world. Win yourself over first!(less)

I'm working on the sequel, but very minimally for now. Just writing ideas. I made a list of questions I want to make sure have meaty answers for the readers. I think about them every day.
Playing Devil's advocate is a big part of working on this book too. Questioning all the angles and especially "That's what happened in this other book!". Holding myself accountable for quality original material and making sure that what I produce is worth the reader's time are my priorities. I don't take it lightly that you have chosen to read my book. You are valued!(less)

On Making It Official

Thank you for letting me and my characters into your life - occupying your time - and caring enough to connect with me online. I'm forever grateful for you. 

However, it is appropriate right now to make it official that I'm going to be taking a break from publishing and promoting. Why make it official? Really, I don't like unfinished business. It occupied my mind that I should be updating you all o Read more of this blog post »

This is what I love about Siobhan Davis! She is really good at writing romance, but I'm not really a romance reader. The best thing is that there's always a really solid, entertaining story behind it all. I was blown away by the storyline introduced ...more
