Free, Baby!

January 20, 2015

Well, Mazie Baby has made three Best of 2014 lists (Indiereader.com, Suspense Magazine, and Readfree.ly). The cherry on top of that trifecta sundae? She is in the running for an IndieReader Discovery Award. Starting today, for five days, I’m trying something new. I’ve put Mazie Baby up for free. Yes, you read that right. FREE. […]

The Best of 2014

December 24, 2014

What a month my Mazie Baby has had! She made not one, but TWO best of 2014 lists. Suspense Magazine named Mazie Baby to its Best of 2014 list. I get a cool seal too! This is particularly satisfying because I didn’t enter her myself. A reader and reviewer found the book compelling enough to make […]

IVD 2014 – Buckeyes, Batman, and the Looove van. With Guacamole on top

October 26, 2014

Ebola be damned, I headed to Dallas for IndieVengeance Day 2, 2014 edition. It’s a long way to go to sign a few books, but there is the added bonus of seeing my editor, Scott Morgan, and Amber Jerome~Norrgard, who have both become friend and family to me, and a host of other writers that […]

Hot flash!

September 28, 2014

No, not the night sweat, strip in the middle of a board meeting kind. The hot flash fiction kind! This past Friday, we finally succeeded in breaking JD Mader‘s blog. For real – comments disappeared, then reappeared, then disappeared again! Tough to get a true read of the exact number of comments but I think […]

Discovered! By IndieReader.com

September 20, 2014

A while back, I entered by Mazie Baby in the Indie Reader Discovery Awards (IRDA). Entered her in some other awards too. Then I went about my life and promptly forgot about it. Part of the IRDA (a part they have now stopped – cheers to good timing!) is that each entry gets a detailed […]

Read and Review Program Success via Choosy Bookworm

September 13, 2014

As one of the authors of Enovelauthorsatwork, I was lucky to be part of a pilot Read and Review program through Choosy Bookworm. The premise, conjured up by Jackie Weger, founder of enovelauthors, and Jay Lee (aka Kevin), the guy behind Choosy Bookworm, is simple. And perhaps a touch of genius. It works like this: […]

August 23, 2014

Yeah, that title has nothing to do with this post – except it’s more Flash Fiction, baby! Yesterday, like most every Friday (because it has become a habit, no a fun thing to do, nay – an obsession) to head on over to JD Mader’s blog and flex my two minute fiction muscles. And like […]

Well shucks, corn man

August 20, 2014

I enjoyed the NYC Midnight 2014 Short Story Challenge so much – and did so well! – that I thought I’d take a shot at the flash fiction challenge. My first assignment was romantic comedy. O. M. F. G… Not that I don’t enjoy watching a good rom-com. But writing one? In 1000 words or […]
