"Mercy, If its set in the past, its historical fiction in my book, but there are so many subgenres as well. I think even if an author thinks there work might be X, a publisher or librarian or Library of Congress may classify it as something else…"

"No question is foolish and when works are combined genres or cross genre, not easy to define it is a very valid question. How do I categorize and market? I have come across the same problem with my work. If there is a HISTORICAL ELEMENT you can…"

"Thanks so much. My story has a big plot and a lot of characters that I am trying to balance out. In a way I have two main characters so I want to introduce the reader to the world in full without spending so much time writing flashbacks. "

Prologues and Epilogues

I've been working on a high fantasy saga for the last seven years and a year ago I had an idea to use the prologues and epilogues to tell three parts of the story throughout the series but considering the dislike that most readers and agents have towards prologues and the fact that I barely see writers penning epilogues anymore I'm wonder whether this will be worth it to tell my story.The prologue will follow two of the other main characters while the epilogue will tell what has happened many…See More

I'd like to say that with all my practical knowledge that I am a great writer but that is not the case, instead I am on the look out for a quite place and a cup of chai.

Lucas Prologue

Posted on April 7, 2013 at 8:16pm 0 Comments

 

Once upon a time…

There was a little girl who lived in her imagination more than the real world and she and her siblings went on fabulous adventures together. One day a boy named Lucas introduced himself to her and her life was never the same.

I have been working on Lucas’s story (formerly called Rekindled) for the past six years. This has been a character that has grown with me and has changed in more ways than I can count but…

My First NaNo

Posted on April 3, 2013 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

Before 2009 I hadn’t finished a draft. Before 2009 I hadn’t written more than 100 pages, so why did I become obsessed with writing a 50,000 word novel with National Novel Writing Month you ask? Because I wanted to see if I had what it took to be a writer. Like many new writers I didn’t consider myself one, in my mind you had to complete a draft to be able to carry that title, so that zeal took me on one of the best experiences that I have had as a writer… writing a novel half-sleep. I never…

New Year Goals

Posted on January 7, 2013 at 3:11pm 0 Comments

Good evening friends,

I’ve never been into writing resolutions for the New Year but this time I thought I should write some short term goals that I want to accomplish this year. This past week I have done a lot of thinking and sorting of my plans this year and I think that the ones on this list are the most immediate and the easiest to do. I know that it sounds like I’m copping out of setting a challenge but I can’t have world domination in one day so I’m starting…

Mercedes, Delighted to have you in the novelist group. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.

We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.

I hope you’ll enjoy the group.
