Myndi Shafer on My NEW Blog…today!

I don’t know if you’ve seen it yet, but I’ve set up housekeeping on a new, self-hosted blog/website (so I can stop hopping between a blog and a website).

So anyway…

Pop on over to the new digs so you can read the interview with Myndi Shafer. She’s telling us all about her the release of her latest book, The Darkening.

I Have Moved!

Yes, it’s true. I’ve taken the plunge and moved to a self-hosted blog…and have to say a HUGE thank you to Breeana Puttroff, author of one of my favorite series, The Dusk Gate Chronicles, for helping to get me started.

So…

If you like my blog, and would like to continue to receive notices for when I post something new, just click on the link below, and subscribe again. I really hope you’ll follow me there because I appreciate all of you very much. 🙂

Please bear with me as the new site is under construction. I’m also moving my website there, so I’ll be playing around with themes, colors, pictures, and whatever new bells and whistles they have for me to get into trouble with utilize.

I’ll still drop in here, and at the website, for a while, just to put up some reminders for those who have missed the announcement.

What An Honor!

I’m so pleased to be able to say that I’m being interviewed over on Diane Capri’s blog today. For those who aren’t familiar with Diane, she’s the author of the Hunt For Reacher series (Don’t Know Jack, Jack and Kill, and Jack in a Box).

~~~

#1 New York Times bestselling author, Lee Child (author of the Jack Reacher series), says of Diane’s books, “Full of thrills and tension – but smart and human, too.”

So while you’re checking out the interview, you might want to have a look at her books. 🙂

Just to be clear, this is the movie based on the novel by Lee Child. But in case you didn’t know who Jack Reacher is by now, this is the guy they’re both writing about.  🙂

I Am A Writer!

I’ve been struggling with my roles in life since Christmastime.  When I first started this whole indie publishing journey, I thought my goals were very clear cut.  Write, publish, and hope that some readers would love my stuff (yes, ‘stuff’ is a weak weasel word, but when those moments of rebellion hit, you just kind of have to go with the flow).

It hit me in December that, for all intents and purposes, I’d ceased to be a writer.  Yes, it’s true.  But I just released Enza,  you might argue.  I did, didn’t I?  But Enza was seventy-five percent written four years ago.  All I did was finish it.  Finally.

The rest of my time I’ve spent blogging…and visiting blogs, marketing…and learning about marketing.  And while none of those activities are bad, I’ve been neglecting my first love.  Almost entirely.

I have two partially finished manuscripts, a third book I need to finish around the first of the year, a sequel to write…and a list of close to thirty other stories I’ve plotted out to some degree…all waiting for me to remember that I am a writer.  Waiting for me to give them some of my limited time.

So that’s exactly what I’m going to start doing.  I won’t give up the other things, but I am going to devote less time to them.  I love blogging, but will be cutting down to twice a week (most weeks).  It may get to the point where I cut back to once weekly.  I’m not sure yet.  I love visiting other blogs…and will continue to do that, too.  Everything else will be on an ‘as there is time for it’ basis.

I am a writer!

Therefore I will….write.  I will begin breathing life into the people and worlds that only exist in my head right now.  Thanks to Jeff Goins for reminding me of what it is I do.

I do not read Stephen King…he scares the heck out of me.  But there’s no denying that he’s a talented writer…and full of great writing advice.  But you wouldn’t know who Stephen King is had he spent all of his time marketing Carrie.
