Podcast Love: Debut Author, Rebecca P. Minor

Podcast Love: Debut Author, Rebecca P. Minor

(*Note, comment to enter a giveaway of the paperback version of Rebecca’s book, The Windrider Saga.) Have your attention? 😉 Now, as I was saying… I started podcasting a year and a half ago out of love for writing and the courageous stories of those who do on writing podcasts like Dragon Page Cover to […]

What A Great Time To Write

What A Great Time To Write

The title of this post is, to me, overused. Maybe not the exact wording but…well, let me explain briefly. What I mean is, in the eras of Hemingway, Poe, Tolkien and Lewis or in King’s heyday and yes, Rowling, it was a great time to write. Right? For them, it was perhaps the greatest. Akin […]

Three Reasons Why I Won’t Quit.

Three Reasons Why I Won’t Quit.

On Safari for Wild Readers

Massive Books Ahead!

I find it interesting as I talk with various writers of fiction – published and unpublished – that opinions vary as to just how many words should go into a novel of any kind. And I’ve found that a lot of it seems to depend on opinions based on whether or not you’re a first […]
