For all of you who have published a book and are looking to reach new readers, I'm pleased to announce a special opportunity. Ryan Lanz over at "A Writer's Path" has teamed up with me to offer an extra 2 bonus weeks on all 90 day advertisements for his three websites: "A Writer's Path," "All … Continue reading Special Opportunity for All My Readers…
Most of the year, I'm so busy writing about the mechanics of writing, reading, and publishing that I don't always take enough time to appreciate you, my readers. So this November, in the month of thanks, I want to begin by saying how much I appreciate every view, every visit, and every comment. Knowing I'm … Continue reading To all my readers…
So last week, we had a windstorm that knocked out my internet (hence my distinct non-presence on the world-wide-web). And, at first, it was hard to get used to it. I couldn't use a dictionary app to check things anymore. I couldn't go online to verify this fact or that.

But, having blogged fairly steadily for the last two years, I know that it can change how you write. Suddenly, you can use the hashtag #amwriting all the time, … Continue reading Why You Should Blog #atozchallenge #amwriting
There is only so much time in a day, and frequently, it comes down to this question: Do I write or blog? And it isn't so simple a question. On the one hand, should I further my craft and my novel by devoting what free time I have to its success, or should I spend … Continue reading Balancing Tasks: Writing vs. Blogging
