Love Your Book

Love Your Book

I read a lot of inde- and self-published novels. Not as many as I would like, but that’s true of reading in general. Still, though, a lot. Some of them are exceptional. Some of them, I can tell the author invested a lot in honing his or her craft, hiring an editor and cover designer, […]

Perspective

Perspective

I’m reading a book right now–well, actually I’m in the middle of about four books, but this particular one is called 30,000 Teachers, by Faith Fitt. It’s a true story about a woman who, after a difficult break-up, moves to China as a teacher and to share the love of God. The story is fun […]

Busy

Busy

Why is it that when I actually have the time to write/edit, I put it off and when I don’t have the time, it’s all I want to do? Have you ever felt that way? I don’t know if it’s my procrastinating perfectionism or just laziness but it’s definitely getting old. I think one thing […]

A Time to Speak Launch Team

A Time to Speak Launch Team

A couple of weeks ago I joined Nadine Brandes’ launch team for her new book, A Time to Speak. I’d never been on a launch team before and I was really excited to jump in and see what it was all about. I figure I’m probably not the only one who hasn’t been on a […]

I’m sitting at my computer, working away at my editing, when it happens. Ding! It’s that special little sound that alerts me of a Facebook notification.

I’d Punch a Lion

I’d Punch a Lion

I recently had the opportunity to be a beta reader for a children’s book that is in the works. The book is called I’d Punch A Lion in his Eye for You and it was written by my good buddy Ben Wolf and illustrated by the amazing Benjamin Lucas Powell. Now, I have to say, […]

Looking Back at NaNoWriMo

Looking Back at NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, is over. In some ways, that’s a huge relief, and in others, it’s a disappointment. The goal, of course, is to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. I’ve completed it some years. I’ve gotten close others. Last year I didn’t even try. This year, I gave […]

Editing…Again

Editing…Again

I’ve been working with an editor on my Dragons manuscript, in the hopes that I will finally get it to a place where someone (preferably the house this lady is with) wants to publish it. I’ve gone back and forth with her several times, making some major changes, and with each round of edits, it […]
