‘Tis the Season – promotions

‘Tis the Season I am not unlike all the authors in the world this year. I am trying to promote my work so that I can start out 2018 in the black. I know I am starting rather late. But it’s been a very traumatic year, and well, writing and such hasn’t been the focus. It would be nice to gain a few new readers this year though, and that is really my aim here.

How to Write: Sagging Middles

We sort of run out of steam, or if you are a pantser, you can’t see where the story is going and
