Friday Ramblings From an Author

There’s something about the change of seasons that has me wanting to look through old stories that didn’t sell and redo them. This past week that’s exactly what I did with two short mystery stories. Fingers crossed that this time they find a home. Something else I got an inclination to do was rearrange my office.…

I don’t know about you but finding time to read is tough when you’re a writer. I’m only half way through my list of books to read this summer when this week I saw suggestions for fall reading popping up in my e-mails. One book on my to read list is Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Lots of…

I can’t remember a time in the writing business when there’s been so much focus on self-publishing. It seems every week I read about success stories. Just today I saw a link to this article about four authors making it to the New York Times e-books’ bestseller list http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2012/aug/02/self-published-authors-bestseller-ebooks  I’m also hearing more authors say because they…
