Kindle Unlimited & Updates on Leighton Family Saga

I’ve officially pulled all of my books from Kindle Unlimited, which is the service where you can subscribe for a monthly fee to read multiple books. Unbeknown to many readers, the services are plagued with problems.   Suzan Tisdale wrote an open letter to Jeff Bezos regarding the KU stuffers, scammers, and thieves that may be an eye-opening account I encourage you to read.  CLICK  HERE.  Other authors are leaving the service as well and releasing their books Read More

Emotionally Involved

As I’ve been editing and rewriting portions of Lady Grace this past weekend, I have realized that I am emotionally involved in this book. Naturally, as a writer that often happens when you create characters and bond with them. It certainly did to some extent with the Legacy Series since I had so many lives that I followed on paper for twenty plus years. Lady Grace, however, has been an emotional journey.

I See the Finish Line

When I’m almost finished with the first draft of a book, I start to get giddy.  Especially when I think to myself — this is a good story.  Even if some readers do not enjoy it, I’ve learned that if I enjoy it, it usually comes out okay. However, if I write something and struggle with the process, it doesn’t do as well. I suppose it has to do with inspiration, though I don’t often Read More
