Writing to Market or Writing From the Heart

Writing to market is okay, but writing from the heart is the best because I'm fully engaged and interested as much as the readers will be once I publish the book. Continue reading →

Diana Stout is 35% done with Out Of Reach: I'm HOOKED!!!! From the beginning, on page one, this book has been a page turner. Patricia's writing reminds me a lot of Dan Brown's books. I can feel the tension, the characters' pain, their angst.

Usually, I read when I go out for my daily meal at a diner where the staff knows me by name and what I'll be ordering--an hour at most. Now, I'm reading at night, too, wanting to finish, yet reluctant for it to end.
