I’m answering questions over at AF Stewart’s blog! Come stop by to say hello!
🙂 See you there.
I’m guest blogging over at the Madhouse! Come see what I have to say about Shakespeare, the new film Anonymous, and generally being a nerd.
And, speaking of Shakespeare, have you seen the release of my book yet? It has a Romeo and Juliet theme — with magic! What could be better for a fall read? 🙂 Get your copy now and let me know your thoughts.
From Light to Dark
I’ve been a bit quiet lately for a reason: I’ve been gearing up for the re-release of my book, From Light to Dark!
This Halloween, get your romantic fantasy fix!

Hi, world! Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! I hope everyone’s getting a chance to relax and think of ways to make the world a happier place. 🙂
Yesterday I was honored to be a guest on the Funky Writer radio show. The host, Rob Batista, and I had some great discussions about writing, ebooks, and fiction in general. If you missed the show, don’t worry: it’s available in the Blog Talk Radio archive here. Let me know what you think!
Rob Batista has invited me to be a guest on his Funky Writer radio show this weekend.
Come listen, call in, or tweet the experience to your friends! 🙂 I’ll be on live this Sunday, January 16, at 3 p.m. Eastern. Hope to see you there.
I read from the first chapter of my novel, From Light to Dark, on the Funky Writer Show last night. It was a blast! So many great writers showed up to share their work. It was an honor to present with them.
Thanks to Rob Batista for running such a fun, cafe-style show! In case you missed it when it aired, you can listen to the recorded version here. Enjoy!
I’ll be reading a selection from my novel, From Light to Dark, on Funky Writer Radio Show’s Funk Soul Cafe tonight. Check me out! There will also be several other writers presenting their work. Hope you can drop in!
Every form of fiction has its benefits and its drawbacks. I’d like to explore each kind one at a time. Let’s begin with novels! I’ll start with a couple of thoughts.
- They interface with your imagination. 🙂 You get no pictures (or few, usually), and you aren’t actually involved in the story, but you get to take what you read and make it real for you. This is why often people are disappointed by film versions of their favorite novels. No other person can accurately recreate the magic that happened in your own mind when you read a good book.
- You can read them any time — as long as you’re free of distractions.
- Other benefits?
- They can’t show you anything that you can’t imagine. If the author fails to explain approximately how large the monster is, then the reader either has to make that part up or feel lost.
- It can be difficult to enjoy reading when there are noisy people nearby.
- Other drawbacks?
