Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Well, here we are again. Another Friday, another week gone, another weekend approaching. This week, hope was a big focus of mine. We had a family member in the hospital for quite a while. Thank God, she's progressing. She's not out of the woods yet, but we're cautiously optimistic. Not only was I hoping (and praying) for... Continue Reading →

Book Release: Quantum Wanderlust

I love to write short stories. For several reasons. They're a nice break from my longer work, they let me explore different genres, and---if I submit them to anthologies---they let me work with other authors and potentially gain new readers. It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Quantum Wanderlust: A Time Travel... Continue Reading →

I chose this quote today because I'm writing the last book in a series that uses alchemy as the supernatural element. So I thought this was fitting. Maybe writers are true alchemists. We start with nothing and create... well, everything. We create people and conflict and settings and storylines. All artists start with a blank... Continue Reading →

Cover Reveal: Quantum Wanderlust

I'm proud to reveal the cover for the sci-fi time travel anthology---Quantum Wanderlust. Spring Forward, Fall Back. That reminds you of changing the clocks, right?

I thought this quote was appropriate because of both its beauty and its accuracy. Writing is a passion---a burning need to share a... Continue Reading →

Yep. Forgive my brashness, but I'm quoting myself. You ever have one of those weeks where nothing goes right? When: your dishwasher breaks your daughter has a thousand dollars of repairs on her car only to have problems driving up to campus your son's schedule is messed up for the third semester in a row...

Did you ever use a thesaurus to come up with a better word? Stephen King says, "Any word you have to hunt for in a thesaurus is the wrong word. There are no exceptions to this rule." Seems to me Mark Twain would disagree. I don't want the lightning bug. I want the lightning. My words could... Continue Reading →

This week I finally (huge stress on that word) got back to my WIP. I had been so busy updating my site, doing beta reads, editing, submitting to an anthology, and marketing (not to mention dealing with all my "real life" stuff), that it took a back seat for a while. The time away gave... Continue Reading →
