Hey Cintia! I'm sorry my books aren't there yet. I hope they will be, soon!

Writer's block is often a case of either anxiety, or not knowing what comes next. Outlining your entire novel, even loosely, before you begin, can help. You'll always have a g See Full Answer

“If your arteries are good, eat more ice cream. If they are bad, drink more red wine. Proceed thusly.”
Sandra Byrd, Bon Appetit

“Many have doubts; few voice them. The silent tended to quickly condemn those honest few who air misgivings dormant deep within us all.”
Sandra Byrd, Mist of Midnight

“Her head rolled but a little way from her body, and I could see her lips still moving in silent prayer for a few moments while the blood pumped outward from the body and from the head. I was stuck firm in my place by the horror of it, jarred loose only by the clattering of Nan Zouche and Alice as they ran up the stairs with linen. I quickly leaned down and picked up her head, eyes still open and aware as the linen slipped from them, as they looked at me. I willed the bile back down my throat and forced myself to look into those eyes with love for the few moments before awareness dimmed from them.
Within seconds, she slipped away. I took the head into the smallest and finest of linens and carefully wrapped it, her blood running thickly between my fingers, under my nails, and staining my forearms as I sought to save her from any indignity.”
Sandra Byrd, To Die For: A Novel of Anne Boleyn

Caity thanks so much for friending me!
I am SO excited about your next Ladies in Waiting book coming out in June!!!! I can't wait! I stayed up til 12:30 last night to finish To Die For; it was SO good! I felt like I was THERE on the Tower Green and almost burst into tears when Anne had her head taken and Meg had to be the one to wrap it up. :'( VERY well written! *****
