Weekly Writing Tip

Hello everyone!

I hope your summer is going well, and that you have a safe and happy July 4th.

Here is the Weekly Writing Tip: Read, read, read! Read a lot in the genre you’re writing. Also, read outside your genre. Reading good writing is a great way to absorb nuances of the craft. Your subconscious will automatically pick up on the ebb and flow of strong writing and good characterizations and process it and feed it back in your own writing.

Also, I’ll have a post tomorrow with some exciting news about the release of Shamara, so stay tuned.

Tuesday Writing Tip for June 10

Happy Tuesday!

I hope your June is going well. Today I’m sharing another writing tip:

The The Mental Battle, Number 2: It doesn’t matter where you are in the writing process whenever you read articles or listen to lectures on writing. Each time you’re exposed to information on writing, you gain a deeper level of understanding. The craft of writing is like an onion—it has many layers and a lot of depth. Trust that you’re absorbing information you need, even if it’s more on a subconscious level. (I’ll talk more about the “subconscious writer” in future posts).

I’ll have a new writing tip next Tuesday. A newsletter is coming soon with contest information and news about the upcoming release of Shamara, the third book in the Shielder Series. If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter, here’s your chance!

Happy writing (and reading)!

Tuesday Writing Tips!

Hello everyone!

I hope your June is starting off with a bang. I’m going to be posting a writing or creativity tip every Tuesday. If you’re a writer (or a reader who’s interested in the writing process), I hope you’ll check out the posts, and feel free to add your own insights and comments.

Here’s this week’s writing tip:

The mental battle, No. 1: It’s very easy to get caught up in the frenzy of technique, super plotting, researching, industry buzz, promotion, online sites, and so many other things, that sometimes we forget the bottom line is the basic writing. First and foremost you are a writer. The most important thing you can do to develop your ability is to write.

Happy writing!

Shadower is here!

Calling all readers! Shadower is now available. This is the second book in my science fiction romance Shielder Series.

If you like kick-ass heroines who might be just a little on the wrong side of the law (like a smuggler) and strong, sexy heroes who might be just a little shady (like a bounty hunter); if you like romance and adventure set on other worlds, then Shadower is the book for you! You can read a blurb and excerpt here.

If you haven’t read book one,Shielder, you can read a blurb and excerpt here.

Also, I’m participating in Fresh Fiction’s fantastic Spring Fling contest. I’m giving away a $20 gift card and a copy of Shadower, so be sure to enter! Click here. Good luck!
