All in the family

A writing career is a family affair. I started my first book 15 years ago, and life hasn’t been the same since for the Langstons. Some aspects have been negative, but today’s post is not about the bad stuff. Instead, I’ll share how writing makes my family better.

This or that – One book or many?

[I’m introducing a new concept for the Ruby blog: This or That Thursday.  Every month or so, we’ll offer you a question with two choices, such as… Plotter or Pantser? Alpha male or beta? Legal pad or Scrivener?  And then you tell us which one most closely reflects you.]  For our very first This or […]

Show and Tell – Cover Reveal for I WISH 2

Last March, I wrote a post to describe the cover design process for my Ruby book I Wish.  Since then, the cover designer, Lisa Amowitz, has become my friend, my co-author on a YA project–and a fellow fangirl of Brit actors, although she’s a Cumber-babe who doesn’t seem to realize that Michael Fassbender has the […]

Ruby Release – I Wish

“Don’t ever give up,” said the late Jimmy Valvano (former basketball coach for NC State University) a few short weeks before cancer claimed him. That quote became the motto for me and I Wish. This is the manuscript that finaled in the Golden Heart in 2009. Without I Wish, I would’ve never met my Ruby […]

Let’s start the […]

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 […]
