In succession, Second Time Sam is in edits, Drago's Destiny needs revisions/edits before a final edit, and our amazing finale (at least I'm still hoping will be) is about halfway written. However, considering all the changes made in just two books so far, I'm sure that is a good thing.
Fate and destiny, they are always on cue.
Somewhere in all of that I have a holiday themed story to write for an anthology I was accepted into.
Squee. My first. Man I'm so excited, so honored.
Details will follow as we get closer...and once I write it. But no worries, I've got the idea, I just enjoy the thrill of a deadline.
After the hurricane winds die down from that, I will be focusing on reviving Ben Marke's story. The books I self pubbed over ten years ago. It's time to bring Ben Marke to life. He's waited long enough.

It really depends on whether my writers block is due to a whole novel, or just the scene I am stuck on. But I find if it is just a scene, I step away. Have a smoke. I know, bad me. And usually the words come that I couldn't find before. If it is the whole book, the whole story line that has stalled me, I usually read other writers work. Especially those self pubbers like myself. They inspire me, keep me dreaming, keep me moving forward.(less)

From Reading and Dreaming, to Working and Making That Shit Happen.

Anthologies. A word many do not know. The non-reader has no idea. The reader may or may not have stumbled upon one. The writer is supposed to know, but I'm ashamed to admit I didn't for the first decade of my writing career. Truthfully, I stumbled upon my first, the Beyond The Dark anthology, in a local second hand book store where I picked it mainly because of the teal color of the cover. Noth...

I guess being the author, I may be biased. But this is one amazing read. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be covered in goosebumps, but you'll be eager to turn the pages.

What an amazing read. Characters that came alive and some background ones that become essential to the plot. Loved this book and am now a Maggie Shayne fan.
