Whew, made it!

Last week was a challenge. I’ll not bore you with the details. Let’s just say I’m glad it’s over. Now, hopefully, I can get back on track. Part of that is figuring out why the conversion for Nocturnal Rebellion borked. Even though I’m putting it up for pre-order, it bothers me when the conversion isn’t what it should be. For that reason, I didn’t take the pre-order live. I’m looking at the file […]

Wedding Bell Blues

No, I’m not getting married. I’m very happily single and enjoying that lifestyle, thank you very much. However, the title of this post refers to one of my books. This one, written under the Ellie Ferguson pen name, is a romantic suspense novel. With the upcoming holiday, which will be a very long weekend for a lot of folks, I decided to drop the price. It is now on sale for $0.99. […]

When a book demands to be written

Six months ago, I sat down to finalize my writing schedule for the end of 2015 and 2016. It was simple enough.

Then would come Dagger of Elanna, book 2 in Sword of the Gods. Only then […]

Setting Goals

One of the things I’ve noticed with a lot of writers, myself included, is that all too often we don’t set hard goals for ourselves. We have the best of intentions. We’re going to finish that book or story we’ve been working on. We’re going to submit to X-number of markets and to to Y-number of conventions. Some of us even set word count goals. We’re good about sticking to these for […]

Since the secret’s out

Over at Mad Genius Club this morning, I talk about pen names. The reason for the discussion is that I’ve been writing under one for some time now. No, not Amanda S. Green. That’s who I really am. But, back when NRP was first getting started and before indie publishing and small press publishing really took off, if you ever wanted to be published by a traditional publisher, you simply didn’t strike […]

Sunday Reading Suggestions

It’s been a busy week between writing — or trying to write — my duties with Naked Reader Press and real life continuing to try to interfere. Still, things got done but even more need to be done. So this is going to be a short post, especially since it has taken me an hour to figure out what WordPress did in its last update that took away the formatting toolbar — […]
