What keeps YOU sane in this crazy world of writing?

Have we talked about this here before? Probably. My mind stays so scattered these days that I have no idea, but I was just emailing the rubies last night about how I’ve had to take a bit of a step back from writing to kind of reset myself, and it got me to wondering what […]

Consolation Day

I was robbed! They don’t know what they missed!! This totally blows!!!!!!!! Whatever the reason… you didn’t make the cut this year. Sadness and woe, and a piece of chocolate cake on the side. But trust me, you aren’t alone. A good many people did not make the cut this year, and a good many […]

Published Book Pet Peeves…Quality Always Matters!

Last week we talked about lessons learned from judging unpublished manuscripts in the Golden Heart contest. And then we talked about quality, craft, and reader expectations in reference to judging the RITAs.

My friend (and super great author), Trish Milburn, recently self-published a multi-author anthology with a couple […]

Ruby Reprise – First Page Reads

It’s well past midnight and my post for the day isn’t done. Therefore, I’m bringing out an oldie but goodie. This post was originally published in 2010, but is still just as relevant today. I hope you enjoy… ********* Recently I had the pleasure of sitting in a session of first page reads, hearing feedback […]

A first look: RWA conference from a newbie’s perspective

One of the best times of the year for a romance writer is July and the national RWA conference. I’ve been several times myself, but this year I got the pleasure of rooming with a newbie to conference. I’d been looking forward to this quite a bit because my roommate (and close friend) has down […]
