Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
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…

Academic and technical writing are far different than literary writing, such as novels and poetry. The primary purpose of academic and technical writing is to provide information about a defined topic to a specific audience. Whether you write graduate papers, professional journal articles, dissertations, white papers, manuals, websites, reviews, or similar documents, you are writing academic or technical documents.
Academic and technical writing can be bad writing. They can…Continue
One of the early blogs I wrote (on another blog site) discussed a certain college (that shall remain nameless) who refused my offer of an author appearance. One of the reasons mentioned in the person's email was the fact that my first two books were eBooks and the quote was: “Ebooks don't count”. This was a…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. …

It is true that I am a relative of Thomas Jefferson which causes a great deal of pride but lately, I have been considering the possibility that I may have another relation of more ancient descent and more holy. This thought is not something which occurred to me suddenly. Considering the events over the past twenty-five years, the randomness of this assumption is most unlikely.…Continue

I drove into Winder, Georgia and visited the Old Lions Club on East Broad Street and the grassy area in front where the annual county fair was established in the late fifties and early sixties. Oh…the memories exploded in my mind as I looked up at the old white Lions Club building. I smiled as the flashbacks created…Continue

You know deep down, I can't do this..
It's just all in hopes for the outcome that I wish..
Yet there's almost nothing that I wouldn't do, for our bliss..
Left here missing the reality of those memories I yearn to relive..
Passionate and relentless against the demonds that curse us to exist..
Fallen sick to my condition worsened from this such evil exersist..
So help me babii, to once again embellish what I truely miss..

My business coach and branding expert Julie Cottineau always quotes Jay –Z, an American rapper, who seems to capture the whole idea of marketing in one sentence: “I’M NOT A BUSINESSMAN/I’M A BUSINESS, MAN!” – Jay-Z…Continue

experts, like Seth Godin and others, predict that books and expert content have to move more and more into the digital realm to adapt to how people interact with information. We already saw it when Oprah launched an …Continue

This is a great question, and it is one I don't often see. On the other hand, it reflects a concept that confuses many people: parallelism.
Correct use of “rather than”
“Rather than” indicates a parallel structure in which two things are compared. To be grammatically correct, the two things being compared need to be equal, meaning they have the same grammatical structure or form.
Here are two simple examples to demonstrate the parallel structure created…Continue

It's been a long time since I've visited Authors.com. I have been extremely busy with my writing. Here is a quick update.
I write what I call 'real-life fiction.' I take pieces of my life and that of others and then add in some fiction that results in a realistic sounding fiction tale that most will relate to.
In 2012 my 2009 self-published book, Sensitivity 101 ... the Search for Acceptance, was picked up a publisher after…Continue

Three steps back and you're in the past;
Forget what is yet to come, for that I have won.
I call your name too be in sweet tame,
to breathe and be within your game.
I fell to what I felt…Continue

This Acrostic Poem that I had written back in 2005 originated from a contest I was entered in through my class. It was also published in the book called Gifted.
My family is so kind to me
You wish to have a family like mine
Family is everything to me
A good family consists of love and joy
My family has something beyond that
Including that we help one…Continue
