Today I am honored to interview Karissa Laurel on the release of her latest book Touch of Smoke, a paranormal romance available as both e-book and paper book. Tell me about your book, and is it a standalone or part of a series? Touch of Smoke is a paranormal romance that takes place in the … Continue reading Author Interview – Karissa Laurel, “Touch of Smoke”
Side Routes – Stone Fence Crafts
Since I've been out of work and stressed to the max, I've been crocheting like a madwoman. And since I don't necessarily need all this stuff, and yarn costs money, I opened an Etsy shop to sell some of it: Stone Fence Crafts. For now, I'm focusing on string bags which are great to take … Continue reading Side Routes – Stone Fence Crafts
Progress – A World Away
Just a quick note to say Chapter 2 of A World Away is up now on Wattpad. Thanks for all the reads and the kind feedback! Hope everyone's having a great weekend.
Revenants Abroad Free through December 31
I decided to make Revenants Abroad free through the end of the year on Smashwords. Amazon doesn't allow a price below .99 unless I put it into the KDP Select program, which I can't do right now. I'm still hoping the Multnomah County Library will pick it up, and it has to be available on … Continue reading Revenants Abroad Free through December 31
A Writer’s Guide to Harry Potter – Review
I can't say enough good about "A (Unauthorized) Writer's Guide to Harry Potter." I was fortunate enough to get an ARC of this from the author. This is probably the single most engaging book on writing I’ve read. It’s beautifully written, and full of clear direction to take your work further by asking the right … Continue reading A Writer’s Guide to Harry Potter – Review

This is just an "info sharing" post. Indie authors (meaning self-published) have long had a very bad reputation for poorly written and poorly edited books. This is why it's next to impossible to get brick-n-mortar bookstores to stock indie titles. In my quest to improve my own writing I've discovered a couple of free editing … Continue reading Info Sharing — Editing for Indies
Revenants Abroad FREE Through May 15
A little Friday the 13th treat! And you don't have to be a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. If you need a different format (ePub or PDF) contact me and I can send you the file.
Going Select, and a Selection
Just to let everyone know, I've pulled Revenants Abroad off Smashwords, so that includes Kobo, and Barnes and Noble, etc (Scribd, Oyster, Flipkart). It was proving to be a dead end. I've chosen instead to go with Amazon's KDP Select because I think it will provided greater visibility and will make the book available via … Continue reading Going Select, and a Selection

‘Cause I Just Don’t Have Enough To Do
So my latest thing is I'm thinking about doing a newsletter focusing on my book and the upcoming sequel as well as other writing, and offering some exclusive content (backstory on characters, new stuff related to the Revenants series and other projects), contests and giveaways. Yeah I know, like I don't have enough to do … Continue reading ‘Cause I Just Don’t Have Enough To Do
