All About afox

Addison Fox can’t remember a time when words weren’t a part of her life. An avid reader, her love of the written word started at the tender age of 1 with “The Owl and the Pussycat” by Edward Lear (a poem she could recite by heart to any family member who would listen). Dr. Seuss, C.S. Lewis, Judy Blume and a host of others quickly followed until she discovered THE CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR by Jean M. Auel while writing a paper at the library in the 7th grade. Although not a classic romance, Ayla and Jondalar’s love story moved her firmly to the romance section of the bookstore and she hasn’t looked back!

Her debut novel, WARRIOR ASCENDED was published by NAL in March 2010. WARRIOR ASCENDED launches her series, The Sons of the Zodiac, about an immortal band of Warriors, granted the powers of their astrological signs and charged with protecting humanity. The series blends sizzling paranormal romance with the myths of the ancients.

Addison lives in New York City. You can find her at her home on the web at

The Art of Revision

 OK…so I’ll admit it. The headline of this blog piece is hooey. As far as I can tell, there is no “art” to the process of revising a manuscript. There may be plenty of art in writing and storytelling but the process of revision is all about hard work. Hard work, you say? Come on, […]

Writing Through the Slog

We had a great conversation in the Winter Writing Festival chat room a few weeks ago. I’m not sure what the impetus was, but during one of our sprint breaks, we started talking about those writing sessions where you just slog it out, word by word, slowly, painstakingly building sentences.

Ruby Blast from the Past – 3 a Day

I wrote this post a few years ago and after looking at it again – and changing a few dates – it’s as relevant now as it was in 2011. So take a look and let me know what you think! Addison ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We all look forward to the latest book our favorite authors have […]

Refilling the Well

Refilling the well. We hear this so often as writers but what does that mean? Does it mean napping for days on end, ignoring any story idea that pops to mind? Or does it mean slacking off on a deadline, watching twenty hours worth of your latest TV binge-worthy series? Or maybe it means avoiding […]

Snow in May

I recently attended the RT conference and in addition to having an amazing time with both my fellow Rubies who attended as well as all the awesome readers I met, I had another rather unique thing happen. I saw snow. In May.


…Why dost thou maketh me nuts? I was mentally bemoaning what I was going to write about – and why I’d taken this post up to the deadline – when I realized that, for good or bad, part of my process IS writing to deadline.

Be Your Own Advocate

A few things happened at the same time this past week and I realized they had a funny connection. This past week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy had several story threads, but one was about a mother fighting to get the doctors to believe that there was something wrong with her son. The other was that […]

It Ain’t Vega$

      I snapped this picture last fall and have been dying for a post to use it in….I’m thrilled I finally landed on the right one! I was really inspired by Anne Marie’s post yesterday about MindGames. Those games we play to keep ourselves disciplined and in the chair when just about anything sounds […]
