By Karen Baney As an author, I’m faced daily with the challenge of reaching out to quality readers. But, like many authors, especially in the early days of my book marketing, I found myself marketing to authors and not readers. This is fine if your book is for authors. If it isn’t, then […]

Blank Books: Imagining a Novel and Keeping Track of the Facts

WRITING WHAT WE LOVE

Send to Kindle H.C.Beckerr I have always loved to read, and I have always loved music. I have also, for as long as I can remember, been completely mesmerized by the stars in the night sky, often wondering if there were any other civilizations out there for mankind to meet one day.

THE LOVE OF A MYSTERY

By Cynthia Hickey Since I opened my first Nancy Drew mystery at the age of nine, I’ve been hooked. What is more fun than trying to figure out a clever crime along with a beloved character? Writing a mystery runs a very close second. The challenge of laying subtle clues, depositing red herons […]

New Hope

By Shaina Cilimberg I’ve been watching another movie called New Hope. I really liked that baptism was included in the credits, although it wasn’t included as requirement for Salvation. However, the Bible says it is required (Acts 2:37-28) I really liked it because it reminded me of my book in a way. However, with a book you know […]
