My initial reaction as I began to read Shadow of the Hawk was that the writing was fluid and graceful. The feel, mood and era all reminded me of John Steinbeck and I was hooked from the very start.

The writing is graceful and artistic. It’s fluid and organized in through and action. When I first started reading it I thought of my love for John Steinbeck and Grapes of Wrath. You get that feel of what the Great Depression was like and how families responded to it, and to each other. You feel the desperation and admire the courage and integrity of many of the people of that time.
This story is about a young girl in her teens who considers marrying a man for the…

People want to buy but they don’t WANT TO BE SOLD!
I love that quote. It’s so true. How many times do you go into a store, greeted by eager-beaver salespeople asking if they can help you find something to buy?
I could never be in sales…
But alas, I AM.
I’m an indie author. Not only do I write, but I also market and SELL.
Like with most businesses, the market is pretty much saturated with books. You name it, there’s a genre out there. And about a trillion…Continue

How many mailing lists do you subscribe to? Of all the emails that clutter your inbox, how many do you actually read or even OPEN, for that matter?
I'm sure the number is looooooooow. (It certainly is for me.)
So why bother sending them? They'll probably get deleted on sight anyway, right?
But if there is even a SLIGHT possibility a subscriber might actually take a minute to peruse the content, you better yank them in immediately otherwise any hope of…Continue

Some people say you should write what you know. It makes sense, doesn’t it? After all, you can deliver a more compelling story if you’re familiar with the subject.
My editor told me from day one to expand out of my comfort zone and do just the opposite.
When I wrote Unlikely Venture, I had a storyline in my head. Okay, that's not exactly true. I had about a HUNDRED stories in my head before landing on the ONE, and even then I flip-flopped around until I landed on the…Continue

Argh. Sooo challenging...and so permanent. It needs to be just right.
Identifying your "brand" is kind of like going to college, where the goal is trying to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life. But at eighteen, who really knows THAT?
You have to pick a major but what are the odds that in a few years you'll even be interested in pursuing a career in the field? Your scope of interests expands, you identify and refine your skill sets, you…Continue
