Taos! Taos! Taos!

Taos loves writers and I rode on a cloud of enthusiasm for my signing and reading at the Somos Salon: Society of the Muse of the Southwest. I was thrilled when Kristina Ortez de Jones, the executive director of Somos invited me to their salon. She smoothed the way and the readers who came to play the Scene Read Game with me had great questions. One even encouraged me to write a story based on historic happenings in Taos.

Be Smart not Taken: Red Flags to Heed When Seeking Self-Publishing Providers

I received a call several months ago from a potential client who wanted to discuss a possible “redo” of his book. The person who designed it claimed to know what he was doing; and editing … well, let’s just say there was virtually none. Worst of all, it was already listed on Amazon.

Upon meeting in person and seeing the book for myself, I was crestfallen that what this author had deemed acceptable—because I suppose he didn’t know any better—was nothing more than a bound first…

Late Summer Treats Made in our Kitchen

August is the month for biting into juicy ripe fruit plucked straight from the tree or bush. Peaches and blackberries also make delicious cereal toppings or ingredients in fruit smoothies. Today I decided that I would use my WordPress blog to promote my book by displaying pictures of fruit that my daughter and I have featured in recipes. Those recipes appear at the end of my gardening book, The…

Interview with Lisa Boucher, author of Jesus, Mo & Cheese Puffs


Flo’s deformed eye doesn’t bother her a bit. Nope. Never mind the eye patch or her aversion to mirrors. But when she wins $40,000 in the lottery, she decides to get one of those “TV doctors” to fix her bad eye. It’s a long way from Indiana to California, so she and Mo, pack along some extra bags of cheese puffs…

Native Lands-Short Story

In the Native Lands

In the Native lands where animals and human meet, there is understanding and true harmony. The beautiful emerald grass flows wildly and free, with the grasses and plants comes nourishment. The animals that run the land are happy and they seem to understand how life goes. The bright blue skies filled with the birds soaring above of the earth and the sun so forthcoming and…

Superman Vs. Lex Luthor: Save The Lube!

I woke up this morning and realized I wanted to be Superman. I wanted to have a dangerous adventure that involved the fate of lubrication and ended in making Lex Luthor my bitch. Thanks to a blank screen, I could and did all of that before I finished my first cup of coffee.
I won’t be sharing my naughty piece of gay fanfic, yet, but the piece got me thinking about character development, research, and writing in general.
What I love most about writing in general is the…

Writing Female Characters

The other day I was captivated by the words of a sixteen year old girl, Malala Yousafzai the young Pakistani student who was shot by the Taliban, survived, and has resumed with added fervor her passion--equal education for women and girls.  Her speech set my thoughts on the volumes of female stereotypes writers conscious or unconsciously perpetuate.  Women nurses, wives, artists, lovers, activists in stories are often…

The Ups and Downs are really getting to me

I have to wonder if I'm the only new author going through this. You know like a woman who has just given birth and is having postpartum depression and doesn't know it. Really one moment I'm on top of the world about the my first book. I start feeling that I'm doing all the right things. Its just a matter of time and hey I'm not doing too bad....then I read about an author who just put out her first book and is a self-publisher and the day that the book is release…

Publishing Nightmare

Blog Publishing Nightmare

When I finished my novel, Juliana’s Truth I was elated and ready to submit; let the publishing begin.  I envisioned the film version after it became an international bestseller.  I’d finally be able to pay off my (and my daughter’s) college loans. The novel began as a thesis for my M.F.A.—but that was merely the first draft; the revisions took another two years.  I was no stranger to rejection as far as manuscripts go but my tenacity was…

How to Throw a Book Launch Party by Cross-Promoting - Or the Best Night of My Life

In February of 2013 I was returning from South America and I found myself watching the "Sex in The City" episode where Carrie has her book launch. Done in Hollywood style, the party was held in a swanky two-story ballroom with all the top socialites from New York City. The major papers were in attendance, taking her photo and getting quotes.

When I reached New York City the next day and met with my fabulous publicist at Gallery Book/ Simon & Schuster we laughed about the party…
