All About klaw

As a child, award-winning author Kim Law cultivated a love for chocolate, anything purple, and creative writing. She penned her debut work, “The Gigantic Talking Raisin,” in the sixth grade and got hooked on the delights of creating stories. Before settling into the writing life, however, she earned a college degree in mathematics and then worked as a computer programmer—for far too many years. Now she’s pursuing her lifelong dream of writing romance novels. She has won the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart Award, has been a finalist for the prestigious RWA RITA Award, and has served in varied positions for her local RWA chapter. A native of Kentucky, Kim lives with her husband and an assortment of animals in Middle Tennessee.

Motivation through workshops

My first book came out two years ago this month. In the subsequent twelve months I had three more out and one novella, and then this year two and a novella. Next year will hopefully be three full lengths (and just maybe three novellas). I know plenty of authors do more than that, but for […]

Ruby Release: Sprinkles on Top by Kim Law

Happy release day to me!!! It’s been almost eight months since my last release, and that feels like forever!!! I know it isn’t, but given that during the first fourteen months of my publishing career I had five releases, waiting eight months is a stretch! But the day has finally arrived, and I’m dancing and […]

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 […]

And then we talked about quality, craft, and reader expectations in reference to judging the RITAs. Today I want to do a bit of a combo of both those subjects again, specifically having to do with published romances. I […]

Ruby Release: 2 for 1 – Liz Talley and Kim Law

Ah…2014. Welcome! It’s a lovely year already, isn’t it? And I don’t say that simply because both Liz and I had a book come out yesterday. Though we did. And we both did little happy release day jigs. I suspect mine was more entertaining, though, because I did mine in my pajamas Because yeah, that’s […]

Building a Self-Published Multi-Author Anthology, with guest Trish Milburn

So I have this friend. And she writes good stuff. A lot of it. And I asked her to come talk to us today. Yes, I’m clearly a writer, aren’t I? Such a way with words. Okay. Enough screwing around. My friend (and super great author), Trish Milburn, recently self-published a multi-author anthology with a couple […]
