Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
I began writing at the age of 12. I wrote the old fashioned Harlequin type romance. You know which ones I mean: clean and wholesome. My aunt was a good fan of my writing and read my stuff helping me with editing and does to this date. I started my own book publishing company to initially publish my own books under my own trademark and ISBN, Then I saw good writers who could not afford the high dollar vanity presses or even subsidy presses so I took on new writers. I now know that though…Continue

Boy, I'll tell ya. We have a thread entitled The Next Big Thing over at the AbsoluteWriter forum and it's a interesting foray into the crystal ball skill of predicting what the reading world will latch onto in 2014. We've run the gamut of everything to horror to New Adult. It is/was like predicting the genre of J.K. Rowling new book that came out a while ago. Everybody was taking a stab at and, of course, it ended up being a mystery. …

The Blarney Stone is a historical stone, or actually part of the Blarney Castle in Ireland where it was believed that kissing the stone can grant you the gift of gab. Yeah, it seems strange in this day and age, but who are we to question tradition? It's not like I'm saying that Santa Claus doesn't exist (OOPS!).…Continue

On this last day of February we might reach a high in the 20s, but this weekend will be frigid. The cold is one of the reasons why I love this week's featured author...because we get to go away from it. I hop in the transporter and pick up Ms. Roxborough and in no time we're lounging on a secluded beach in Hawaii…Continue

I love authors, I really do. However a very few of them...well, let me explain
I'm sitting in front of my computer this morning wondering what topic I wanted to discuss. Should I throw up another Adult Truth? Or another taekwondo life theme? How about I introduce my new series of blogs on Tourist Complaints and how they relate to my life. Or maybe even the new series of restaurant reviews featuring some of my books' characters.
Suddenly, (and I know an…Continue

So, I have to watch it on the roads this morning because (and this will be no surprise to many readers) it snowed again! Blech! This is why it took me so long to get home and be able to hop in the transporter to pick up this week's featured author. Where are off to? Anywhere there isn't snow, which…Continue

One of the curses of being a writer is when people say “I've had a fascinating life. You should write about me.”
I've had a fascinating life myself. I caused a small riot in a train station in Hanover, Germany, and another riot in a marketplace in…Continue

So I have heard back from the publishing house I've sent my novel to, and the wonderful editor who's been looking after me likes my novel and the changes that I had done to Double Magick in The Falls book 1 in A Candi Reynolds Novel (they really needed doing)and has asked for my permission to send it to the reading department as protocol requires books get reader opinions prior to asking for a contract. Would it be ok to proceed?
My answer oh yes definitely, and now I have everything…
