Give Me Just One Reason

Ah, as I pen this post I’m surrounded by the sights, smells and sounds of the holiday season. Several weeks ago my husband and I climbed into the attic and trudged down with a bajillion boxes of Christmas decorations. There were wreaths, two trees, outside lights, centerpieces, stockings and fancy trappings of a holiday that […]

From Superromance to Novella: Learning to write short

Ah, writing long…I’ve become most familiar with the idea (and in my head I’m accomplished at it).When I sold my first Superromance, the word count was a doable 65K. That particular length is perfect for writing a tight single storyline romance. Secondary characters can make appearances and there can be plenty of internal and external conflict. I loved […]

Ruby Release: His Brown-Eyed Girl by Liz Talley

Today marks the release of my eleventh Superromance – His Brown-Eyed Girl. I know. Doesn’t seem that long ago and it was just my very first book. Time flies when you’re busy writing Rather than talk about the book, I’m going talk about some of my favorite ways to make my writing pop…or rather deliver […]

I’ve Got the Hiccups

When I was younger, I hated getting the hiccups. Who am I kidding? I still hate them. They are annoying…and sometimes hurt. I can remember trying all the supposed fixes for getting rid of the hiccups – standing on my head (yes, I tried this), spoonful of sugar, gulping a whole glass of water. I […]

Ruby Release: His Uptown Girl (with a side of flawed character)

When I set out to write this blog post, I had a million things racing through my head I wanted to say, but as I sat down and faced the blank page, all the brilliance faded.  In its stead was ”Whaaaat?” Which is the thought I’m often left with after long days of donning too many hats. I […]

Uptown New Orleans, September 1, 2005

Confused by that title? Well, this is how my upcoming June release begins. Notice it doesn’t begin with Chapter One. Yep. That’s right. His Uptown Girl starts with a PROLOGUE. Ah, the dreaded prologue. Bain of editors and agents existence. Most hate it. Call it lazy. Unnecessary. Boring. But… a reader I love them. Yes, […]

SPOTLIGHT: Boudreaux’s Bookworms

Last year I was invited to participate in an online Facebook book club by my sassy Cajun friend Karla Boudreaux. As thrilling as it was to be invited (because I LOVE to talk about books) I had reservations as a published author. I didn’t want anyone in the group to feel as though she HAD to […]

You’re Not Alone

I don’t know about you, but shortly after the rush of the new year and all the terrific resolutions, intentions and big ol’ goal charts, something happens to me. I sort of sink into a funk. I’m not sure whether it’s the season – here in Louisiana it’s lifeless with yellowed grass, gray skies and fickle temperatures. Or […]
