End of the Summer, Start of the Writing Season!

Did I just trouble anyone by declaring the end of Summer? I’m sorry. However, the boys are going back to school. I will miss them dearly, but it also means I have more time to write! (When not dodging honey-do lists.) During the Summer, we have way too much time being a family for me to keep up with my writing.   Book Projects This summer, I got a couple big accomplishments done. “The...

Building the “Connective Tissue” of a Book

Hello writers and readers! Today’s informative blog is aimed at both of you, but especially those who are thinking of writing. It was inspired by a scene I’m currently writing for one of my novels.   I call these particular scenes, “connective tissue”. (If there is a literary word for it, I haven’t found a good example.) Maybe it is due to my medical background, but...

Two Audiobooks in Production through ACX

I have good news for fans that have asked, two of my books have started the Audiobook process and have publishers working on the projects.   (Sometimes I’m not sure if I should start a post with “Good News Everyone”, since that phrase usually pulls up scary memories of Futurama and the crazy stuff that usually followed that announcement.)   They are going to be exclusive...

Follow-up Marscon, Ready for MSP Spring Con!

Follow-Up Marscon   Last weekend was my second appearance at Marscon. The snow proved to be a major factor, as it hit hard Friday and cut down on the crowds who might’ve attended. It also forced me to stay Friday night at the hotel, which meant I wouldn’t be making a profit from the convention. On the other hand, I did make use of attending some writer panels that gave me ideas. Also,...
