Ruby Release: Whisper Falls Book 3 — Whispers From the Past

Amanda Brice here, ready to celebrate the release of Whispers From the Past, the third and final book in my Ruby Sister Elizabeth Langston’s amazing Whisper Falls trilogy. I read each of these books as they were released, and gobbled them right up. Seriously, I couldn’t wait to get my greedy hands on this third […]

Co-writing: genesis of an idea

[My author-friend Lisa Amowitz and I are co-writing a YA historical/magical realism book, set during the American War for Independence, featuring Nathan Hale (America's first spy) as one of the characters. She and I have decided to blog about the experience of writing a story together. Here is our first article, primarily told by Lisa.] […]

Success by the Numbers

At RWA Nationals in San Antonio, I attended a panel of hybrid authors.  The discussion centered around their reasons for choosing traditional versus indie publishing. One author, who identified herself as strictly self-publishing now, stated that indie authors are the ones who are making the right business decision. There is more money to be made […]

I want my HEA

Shailene Woodley is going to be big in 2014, with two highly-awaited films releasing this spring: Divergent (March) and The Fault In Our Stars (June). I probably won’t see either. I want happily-ever-afters. I prefer for books to end on a joyful, uplifting, satisfying note. If I know in advance that a story will end […]

Passages in life

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. (from The Prophet by Khalil Gibran) Today is release day for one of my best projects ever. Dear Daughter #2 is leaving for college. Someone asked my husband a couple of months ago what it felt like to wait for the […]
