Book Release on Cyber Monday!!

Book Release on Cyber Monday!!
$0.00 SALE on Amazon.com
(ending on Wednesday)
Geek to Diva in 20 seconds

The first book, Geek - Boy Equals..... ends really abruptly, and I am sorry for that (sad face).  However, that was by design, as the second book follows right on the heels 
of the first.  

So, the next book, Geek to Diva in 20 seconds, will be released less than a week behind Geek - Boy Equals....

I would have loved just one book, but the entire saga is lengthy, and completely too much for a single ebook.  

FINALLY FREE for Black Friday .....

FINALLY FREE for Black Friday 
(or at least the weekend)

Geek - Boy Equals.... is NOW available for $0.00 on Amazon.com!  I announced that it would be available starting on Black Friday, but alas, I was wrong.  Starting today, Saturday, Nov. 30th until Monday, Dec 2nd, Geek - Boy Equals.... will FINALLY BE FREE!

Sorry for the mix-up!

If you’ve been following me on Wattpad, where I release all of my Chick-Lit novels for THE FREE, then you’ve been keeping up-to-date with the Geeks saga.  
Well sorry, guys, but I got impatient. 

So for Black Friday, I am releasing the entire book, also for THE FREE, on Amazon.com!

Meaning, you don’t have to wait for Chapter by Chapter, if you grab it on Black Friday, Saturday, or Sunday 
(basically Black Weekend 2013).

Writing Advice on Worn-Out Cardstock

So, I finished moving and among my satchels of keepsake pages (as all writers have), I found a piece of cardstock that has been a flagship for me.  It was some hasty advice that I jotted down years ago, advice from Editor Anica Rissi.  I read it somewhere once, and it made such an impact, that I wrote and saved it. 

So, in case you can't read my handwriting scribble, these are the GOLDEN words:

1) Revise, revise
2) Start with conflict and tension
3) Start with the story, not the backstory
4) Give reader something to wonder about
5) Avoid explaining too much, too soon
6) Make sure story has both a plot arc and an emotional arc ie. (cross internal conflict with external conflict. Give more dilemnas, and force them to deal with the consequences of their choices)
7) Read your dialogue out loud
8) Use adjectives, adverbs, and dialogue tags only sparingly (trust your readers)
9) Make sure your details matter

Words to live by, writers!!!!
