Fae’s Anatomy Is In Stores Now!

One of the most common question authors receive is, “Where do you get your ideas?”  (There are jokes about buying them in Poughkeepsie or Schenectady — two places chosen, I’m sure, for how difficult they are to spell!) I don’t have any trouble coming up with ideas. But I always need help when it comes to titles. Often, I’ll pose questions on my Facebook page, asking folks to help when I can’t come up with a title, or when I’m trying to decide between multiple titles. Sometimes, the people who...

Nice Witches Don’t Swear Returns!

When New York Times Bestselling Author Robyn Peterman invited me to write a story in her Magic and Mayhem Universe, I couldn’t believe my good fortune.  Robyn’s an amazing writer — she’s funny and smart, and she knows how to give every one of her readers an over-the-top good time. Wait.  Let me back up.  Do you know what the Magic and Mayhem Universe is? The brilliant Robyn Peterman created Magic and Mayhem, a world full of crazy-fun characters, settings, and rules of magic… And then Robyn invited a number of mere mortals — um, including me —...

Have I Got a Deal For You!

For the past five years, I’ve published most of my books with Book View Cafe, an author-run publishing cooperative. BVC is a fantastic community; the 50+ members are all experienced authors with astonishing insights into writing, producing email and print books, marketing those books to the reading public, and generally going about the hard work of being a published author. BVC has its own bookstore, where readers can buy .mobi (Kindle format) or .epub (most other e-readers) for the same price or less than books are sold at other online...

R.I.P. Kindle Worlds (and Nice Witches Don’t Swear)

R.I.P. Kindle Worlds (and Nice Witches Don’t Swear)

Before I even start this rant, let me acknowledge that I know Amazon doesn’t care, that Amazon will make decisions for Amazon’s own good, that I’d be an idiot to think Amazon would ever act to benefit authors if there’s a chance Amazon would be harmed by such action.   That said…   Yesterday, Amazon announced that it’s pulling the plug on Kindle Worlds, the fan fiction platform that’s been in place for a few years. Seed authors (who own the worlds) were completed blindsided, as were contributing...

The Library, the Witch, and the Warder

Once upon a time (as the story goes), I had an idea for a novel. I sketched out the concept, and I sent an email to my agent with a two paragraph summary that began, “Jane Madison has a problem. Or two. Or three.” I ended up writing Girl’s Guide to Witchcraft. While I was writing Jane’s book, I thought it was a fantasy novel. When it was published by Red Dress Ink, it was called a chicklit novel. “Chicklit”, though, became a dirty word in publishing, so when I released it with Book View Cafe, I called it a...

Three Part Harmony

Three Part Harmony

Sometimes, the best-laid plans just fail to come together. That’s been the case with my Harmony Springs novels — spicy and sweet small-town contemporary romances. I think part of the reason they initially failed to find a home was their original names. The titles were all Sinatra songs — romantic, fun classics — what could be wrong with that? Well, for one thing, people searching for my books found countless options to download Sinatra songs. So, it was time for a change. Fly Me to the Moon became Harmony Christmas....

Stake Me Out to the Ball Game

Stake Me Out to the Ball Game

A couple of years ago, I heard about a brilliant publishing effort:  The Uncollected Anthology. Seven authors banded together to publish urban fantasy short stories.  Each quarter, they chose a theme, each author wrote a story centered on the theme, each author published her story independently, and all the authors shared telling the world about their work. Imagine how excited I was when the Uncollected Anthology invited me to be a guest author! This quarter’s theme is “Heart’s Desires.” And my story is part of my...
