Book Art

I am new here and was cruising the forum when I ran into a post asking about others book covers,  I was going to reply with a similar post as I am making here until I noticed that the original poster made the forum request four years ago.....Oh well...but here's my story anyway....I am showing the cover of my first novel.."The Leaning Tower of Eiffel"..This is my daughter when she was about 13 years old overlaid on a vintage photo of a neglected, but historical water tower in my town.  The…

Why I Care What You Think

I’d like to believe I’m a smart author in that I want to learn from my mistakes. That being said, I’m finding that my most important “teacher" is you, the reader. What you say about what you read matters—a lot. That’s where book reviews come in.

 

By leaving feedback as to how you feel about what you just read on a book’s page at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, wherever, you help your fellow readers discover new authors to love, but you also let authors know what we did…

When You Contact Him (A short story)

  

When you contact HIM

A short story by M.K. Plaza

I wasn’t sure what to make of this story. It’s just been so long since I’ve written anything. This is just something I thought of while I was writing a separate novel.

Recently

I’ve had a lot of free time so I decided to spend it by writing. It’s just been so long since I’ve written anything. I have a lot of ideas; I just have trouble making a story out of them. I don’t know if its writer’s block or I’m just not creative enough. Whenever I feel down I write about what I feel and stuff and it always made me feel a little better. I’m currently an aspiring writer; my ambition is to become a published writer.…

WHAT'S YOUR GENRE?

Although I do astrology, I no longer ask people “What's your sign?” As an acquisitions editor for Oak Tree Press, I now ask authors, “What's your genre?”

The worst thing a writer can do is give me a blank stare. “Genre” is an essential part of the lingo in publishing lexicon. It's how we classify a book and decide if it fits our line.

Labeling books has practical reasons. Bookstores (when they existed) found it useful to put books…

Good Day Sunshine!

Have been soaking up the Florida sunshine today and shopping in the coolest plaza! I feel so privileged to be in The USA's sunshine state!

I am so lucky that America has embraced my success, and I look forward to a round of book signings for my debut novel, "Johari's Window", beginning with Deltona, Florida. Watch this space!

Chapters - V

C05 “The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room.”

What did you expect the beach to be? Covered in tile?

***

Some of these complaints are more inane than others. I think my snarky comment, while made in jest, brings up a valid point. What did these folks expect when they went to the beach? A beach, one for tourists, is mostly sand. There are rocky…

Today, as usual, I took the bus for going to college. While riding on the bus, as usual conductor screaming inside, go inside. Bench was filled with passengers. So I had to stand up to jostle with other passengers. Buses run faltering because of a traffic…

LOOKING TO THE PAST

What happens when something you love becomes WORK?

Yes, that's my current dilemma. I love to read (who doesn't?) and mystery has been my favorite genre until I became acquisitions editor for Oak Tree Press. The manuscripts came fast and furious, box loads via snail mail, cyber submissions filled my e-mail. All of a sudden I was forced to speed read the first 30 pages, make decisions like a Roman…

“69”-ing: Does It Satisfy?

On a blog I perused recently, I picked up an interesting tidbit. It’s a practice called “69-ing” and, no, it’s not that 69-ing!

With all the books out there on the market these days, hip readers have a new way to test whether a prospective…
