New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Margo Bond Collins is addicted to coffee (mmm...caffeine) and SF/F television, especially Supernatural (mmm...Winchesters). She writes paranormal and contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and paranormal mystery. She lives in Texas with her daughter and several spoiled pets. Although she teaches college-level English courses online, writing fiction is her first love. She enjoys reading urban fantasy and paranormal fiction of any genre and spends most of her free time daydreaming about heroes, vampires, ghosts, werewolves, and the women who love (and sometimes fight) them.

Finish writing a piece, do a quick edit, and submit it somewhere for publication. Then move on to the next project. Don’t wait to hear back—that way lies madness! If it’s rejected (and often it will be; that’s the nature of writing for publication), don’t let it get you down. Just send it out again and go back to your work in progress.(less)

Sometimes I’ll go back and try to work on editing what’s already done. But I loathe editing and revising. I know it must be done, but I hate it with a fiery passion. So that usually prompts me to go back to writing!

Books in the Time of COVID-19: A Reading List

Yesterday, my daughter asked if we could watch a couple of episodes of The 100 together. And that ties into a trend I’m seeing during the COVID-19 crisis: people seem to be consuming a lot of apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic entertainment right now. So a friend and I put together this list of essential quarantine reading, in no particular order:

“Love can make even nice people do awful things.”
Jude Deveraux

“We all have moments of weakness. It’s how we recover from them that really counts.”
Richelle Mead, Succubus Blues

“God might work on mysterious ways, but hell worked on efficient ones.”
Richelle Mead, Succubus Shadows

“Love is rarely flawless,” Carter pointed out. “Humans delude themselves by thinking it has to be. It is the imperfection that makes love perfect.”
Richelle Mead, Succubus Blues

“Writing a novel is a terrible experience, during which the hair often falls out and the teeth decay. I'm always irritated by people who imply that writing fiction is an escape from reality. It is a plunge into reality and it's very shocking to the system.”
Flannery O'Connor, Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose
