Inspired Sale

rose lily wmI’m very fortunate to have found some wonderful, talented blogging and author friends. I mean, such kind, thoughtful and helpful people.

If I’m being honest, there aren’t too many of them … perhaps a half-dozen, who have really made an impact on my life just through a computer screen.

One of them is Jill Weatherholt. I am honored that today Jill is featuring my novel, Whit’s End. On her blog, you can read what gave me the initial idea for my novel. And, also go there to click on my book and get it on sale for .99 cents this weekend only, January 20 -22 (2017).

Comments are closed here, but I’ll be happy to join in with the comments over at Jill’s blog. Would love to read your thoughts. The link to her post is HERE.

Is Your Book Done Yet? (Part 3)

So, yesterday I wrote about how I’m the odd-one-out with my women’s fiction genre in my cross-promo group.

Maybe the question should be, “Is this blog series done yet? Ha Ha! No. Not yet. There’s so much information I want to share. Check out PART 1 or PART 2 of this series if you’re just joining now.

The question I’ve been asking all week, “How long did it take you to write your most recent book(s)?” My official answer to that question is this:

I wrote Love, Lies, & Clones in 8 or 9 months, but I was also working on two other novels in that time that will come out in 2017 (“Blood & Holy Water” and “Superhero Wives”). I get tired of one project and need something else to take my mind off of it, so I can come back with a fresh eye.

But how long should it take me? What if I want to keep my “fans” happy? 

I’ve been overhearing that the best way to have people…

If I had a nickel for every time someone asked me that question… well, I’d have made more money that I’ve done self-publishing so far (Ha. Ha. But that’s a topic for another blog post). But, seriously, how long does it really take to write a book? Check out PART 1 of the three part series.

Comments from Part 1 of this blog post series asked about writing vs. editing time. As a new writer, I had no idea how long it took to polish a novel once it was written. What was really eye-opening to me is how quickly I can put words down on a page and call it a novel. The real magic happens with rewriting and edits. One of my favorite authors, Michael Crichton has said, “Books are not written–they’re rewritten.”

Here’s the real timeline breakdown of Love, Lies & Clones.
