I do wish the days of coloured hardbacks would return and get rid of the silly paperback covers which have to be so brilliant to get anyone to buy your book. I didn't need an image on a cover to read a good book. I read the blurb/synopsis at the library or bookstore and ...well … Continue reading The Importance of Book Covers
Still trying to sort this out. It happened in another group to…so even If we have an LGBT Hater…and have been reported…It may be FB messing about.

Q & A for Editing
Helping Writers become Authors:
Editing your novel can bring a host of its own challenges, concerns, and questions. Many of those questions are ultimately the same questions you ask when writing: How to properly structure a story? How to create a strong character arc? How to write a sentence that makes sense?
But some of those questions are unique to the editing process, including questions such as: How do you stay motivated while editing (when you’d really rather be writing)? How do you know when to edit and/or how much? How do you know when to trust what your beta readers and editors tell you?
All of these questions, and more, are among those you’ve been emailing me over the years. Today, I decided to share some of the most pertinent questions, along with my thoughts on their answers.
