It Really is the Thought that Counts — #MFRWauthor

Okay. It's been a while. I've been dealing with a nasty case of depression, but I think I'm back...or at least mostly back.  Anyway, welcome to week 19 of the Marketing for Romance Writers 52-Week Blog Challenge, most of which I've missed so far this year. This week's prompt is My Most Romantic Memory, which … Continue reading It Really is the Thought that Counts — #MFRWauthor

My Biggest Accomplishments So Far — #MFRWauthor

Welcome to week #50 of the Marketing for Romance Writers 52-week blog challenge. Tis week's prompt is My Biggest Accomplishments, a theme that makes me say, "Ugh." As I mentioned in week 46.

A Song That Makes Me Happy — #upbeatauthors

It's Monday, the start of another full work-week after the holiday here in the US. Even though I work from home, I do try to take holidays off these days--something I didn't do in the early stages of my career. Back then, I worked every day, rain, shine, or holiday. I reached a critical stage … Continue reading A Song That Makes Me Happy — #upbeatauthors

When One Door Closes… #upbeatauthors

Back in 2008, my youngest daughter and her husband packed up everything they owned and moved from Utah, where we had all been living in close proximity to one another, to Florida, something like 25 gazillion miles away. They hadn't been married all that long, so my son-in-law was still something of an unknown commodity … Continue reading When One Door Closes… #upbeatauthors

The Woman Who Inspires Me Most–#MFRWauthor

Welcome to week 44 of the Marketing for Romance Writers 52-week blog challenge. This week's prompt is A Person That Inspires Me. I have to be honest with you--this one made me pause.

It's Monday, which means it's the start of a brand-new work week, and that means another installment of posts from Upbeat Authors. Today's topic My Favorite Historical Figure.

You Should Never Be Too Busy To…#upbeatuthors

Happy Monday! It's the start of a brand-new week, and that means a new topic for #UpbeatAuthors. I've been staring at this week's topic for a while now, wondering what one thing I would pick to fill in the blank here. Over the years, I've met many writers who start volunteering in their local writer's … Continue reading You Should Never Be Too Busy To…#upbeatuthors

5 Places I’ve Found Inspiration for Stories — #upbeatauthors

Writers are often asked where they get the ideas for their stories. Readers are genuinely curious, but writers sometimes have a tough time answering that question. Some stories come into your head with a bang! and some arrive kicking and screaming. Every book is different. Some ideas pop into a writer's head after overhearing a … Continue reading 5 Places I’ve Found Inspiration for Stories — #upbeatauthors
