When I was younger, like in high school younger, I used to sing a lot. I wasn't all that bad, back in th’ day. Of course, when I sang with the school choir, I sang with my choir voice. When I sang alone in my bedroom using the hair brush as a microphone (oh come on, you did it too, admit it), I tried to sound like Barbara Streisand or whoever was on the radio at the time.
Back in high school a group of my friends formed a band. Someone played guitar, another friend played the drums, and like all high school bands, we thought they rocked the joint. To my delight, they invited me to sing with them for a performance (just once, now that I think about it). After our show a friend’s mom who had…

(Third in a series on month-by-month preparations in the year before a book launch. In this case, the book launch is in October 2014, with She Writes Press.

When I was writing my first novel, I was so excited to be WRITING A NOVEL that I ended up writing a lot of scenes that had nothing to do with the actual plot. But I didn't care because it was so fun to be WRITING A NOVEL! When I finished the first draft I was so thrilled to see my own words on the page that I didn't consider that readers might be confused by the superfluous scenes sprinkled throughout the manuscript. I found them entertaining enough to include simply because I'd written them. That was enough for me.
My agent, however, had other ideas. She had me cut out several scenes, gently explaining to me that, although mildly amusing, they had nothing to do with the…Continue

I suggest that our world nervous system is overflowing with stress. The recent shooting at Fort Hood in Texas, the ferry turning over, the shootings at the Jewish center, are all examples of our world being too ill with stress. Our nervous systems are leaking out like a hot water or gas from a rusty valve. We cannot carry anymore stress without the spiritual rehabilitation of our world.
If we the world were able to do something together, like donate to a certain charity, altogether…
When Short Previews Sell Better Than Long Previews
In the last post here, we discussed whether short or long previews help you sell more. Today, we're going to look at when -- based on my experience -- short previews are just fine.
One word -- series, as in, when you publish more than one book featuring the same characters.
For example, I'm in the middle of a three-book series right now. The first two parts have been published (…
