Do you believe in writer’s block?

I was on a writer’s panel last week, with authors from a mix of genres. Children’s books. Memoirs. Poetry. Romance. One of the questions the moderator asked was: Do you believe in writer’s block? If so, how do you get past it? After the votes were counted, we had three who believed and four who […]

Foreign translations through Babelcube

At Romantic Times 2017 in Atlanta, I attended a workshop where an author panel discussed book/marketing projects that took little effort and brought in “nice” revenue. One of the authors mentioned having her books translated with Babelcube and the steady income she gets from those translations. “It’s free money!” That suggestion caught my attention. I […]

Thank you, Sabrina

In this year’s Rita Awards ceremony, the audience watched clips of authors thanking fellow authors who had played an important role in their writing careers. We’re all in this together. When RWA called for submissions for this feature, I sent in an entry–to thank Sabrina Jeffries for all she’s meant to me. We were selected to […]

What is a summer read?

There are loads of summer reading lists out there. A quick search came up with a list for every taste, including romance, mysteries, classics that you’ve never read, and must-reads-releasing-this-summer. But what I couldn’t find was: what is the definition of a summer read?

Words of gratitude

Writing the acknowledgments to my books has always been one of my favorite things to do, because it lets me thank all of the people who help me write a story. So I’m taking an opportunity today to tell them again just how very grateful I am for the contributions they’ve made to my writing […]

Autism and writing what you know

I give a writing craft workshop called Write What Your Family Knows. The concept is partly about research, partly about a writer’s life. By mining my family’s interests or careers, I have instant access to a (mostly) inexhaustible source of expert information. Do I want an alpha hero? Little brother is an Army retiree. Do […]
