A Heroine’s Journey

A Heroine's Journey There's something satisfying about a story that ends up back where it started, and you get to see how everything has actually changed as a result of the story itself. One of my favourite parts of Lord of the Rings is when all the hobbits return to the Shire. I love seeing how different

Romance Fantasy Novel Giveaway

Romance Fantasy Novel Giveaway February 7-28 only.   As the title and image says, there's a romantic fantasy giveaway happening on BookFunnel, only for the next three weeks. I don't have a lot of fantasy novels in my portfolio, although a reader pointed out to me just a short while ago that my King Arthur

A Big, Fat, Epic Read — Now Massively Discounted.

The Branded Rose Prophecy is my longest book ever written.  It comes in at 236,000 words.  That’s long for anyone.  It is nearly 4½ standard books packed together. I had a blast writing it, but it took me nearly a year, and I got very little else written that year.  Still, it is one of

Living With Lightning Strikes

Roy C. Sullivan must be the unluckiest man alive. He's been hit seven times by lightning.  On the other hand, he's one of the luckiest men.  He lived. There are hundreds of people struck by lightning every year, and the effects of being struck are never the same. From a lightning strike support group, the

Epically Giggle-Making

Q&A about length. In your newsletter, you said that The Branded Rose Prophecy is extra, extra-long. I was curious. What's the longest you've ever written, and what's the shortest (complete story, that is!) you've ever written? This mailbag question was an interesting one for me, as Thor: Ragnarok was released a few days ago. It's the

How Long Can You Hold Your Breath?

  I’m terribly aware of the fact that my summer has been a complete disaster, writing-wise, and that some of you (I won’t name names) are feeling a bit impatient for the long promised big book [The Branded Rose Prophecy] which wasn’t published when I thought it would be. I’ll talk about that another day,

New cover for THE BRANDED ROSE PROPHECY — the first step-back ebook cover!

As promised I’m doing what I call a “casual” cover reveal…because the cover really deserves a bit of attention, because it’s, well, different. You’ll see what I mean in a minute. Dar Albert, from Wicked Smart Designs, should get a little bit of applause – she has done all my indie covers and they’re all

My Life/Working Notes – The Cover, The Cover!

The temporary "kitchen" I'm currently working with, and the roughed-in new pantry, which extends back into the space in the wall that used to be our back closet. Can't wait to see it finished! Renovations are killing me. My hands have never been so sore and swollen, as frequently as they have been.
