Coffee&Books: What Should You Read Next?

Are you a coffee addict? 

Do you write and read books? 

I am, and I do! That's why I was truly inspired by the infographic of The Dog House Diaries about the connection between your coffee preferences and your character; I went further, and had a crack at creating... well... let's call it "a kind of" infographic about book recommendations based on your favorite coffee drink.

Cozy Mystery Is Now An Audiobook

When reading a book, you picture the characters interacting with one another, but an audio brings everything to life as you listen to the dynamics of the narrator.

Your Favorites Best-Ever Teen Novels

We live in a golden age of young adult literature today, when books written for teens are accepted equally by readers of different generations. I think, it's not surprising to see Harry Potter and The Hunger Games series atop. They are my favorite novels, too. :)

Hope you will find other really good books you've not probably read yet.…

5 Ways Aspiring Authors Get Tripped Up in Wishful Thinking

I recently had a coaching session with an author who’s finished with her manuscript and ready to shop it. Like most of the writers I work with, it’s taken her a year to complete, and there were another five years before we started our work together during which she was plotting and…

From Laura Ingalls and Alicia Florrick to Elizabeth II: literary and historical women as role models

The more time I spend reading, writing, volunteering at the library, and exploring what I want to do with my life, the more I’ve learned that what I read and who I read about has influenced who I am and who I want to be. While I love Dickens, Steinbeck, Fitzgerald, and Shakespeare, my…

Finding Your Audience - Part II - Reviews

One of the hardest parts of "finding" your audience is actually connecting with it.  You might know who it is, but you also might not be able to find a way to make them find you.

Advertising is one way, but that can be expensive.   

It is interesting how many freebie book sites are online right now, and even a few review sites where you can submit your book to be reviewed - by an average reader.  As frustrating if not terrifying as this can be, it is actually a good exercise.…
