Book Review, update

Book Sale; The current sales of Love Inn and An Unexpected Performance are going bye bye today and tomorrow so if you haven’t gotten yours yet, get thee to Amazon and buy buy. So…what’s new? Here, there  is SO much going on I am meeting myself coming and going.

If you never heard of it, or haven’t read it, you really should, because it is one of the best writing books out there(in my opinion).

How to Write: update

Good morning fellow writers! How is it going? Are you following along in the How to Write series? Do you have any questions? I am here to give you a little update and talk about plotting and pantsing. I took off the fourth of July to celebrate our glorious Union, got into the writing chair late that evening and finished the first chapter(click here for first chapter). I also penned Sunday’s blog post. I am doing more writing at the moment than I have done in a few months. It’s wonderful. I hope you are also being productive. You should
