A Well-crafted Blurb

By Suzanne D. Williams The first two things a reader sees that causes them to buy your book are the cover and the blurb. I know I have downloaded books because of the cover and in the same vein, I have also downloaded books with bad covers that had a great blurb. There […]

Love & Redemption

by Suzanne D. Williams Of all the characters I’ve created, Michael O’Fallen is my favorite, and I think no matter how many books I write, he’ll retain a special place in my heart.

Writing Your Roots

By Suzanne Williams Familiar writing advice says to “write what you know.” I have taken this to heart. Growing up in the same county in Central Florida as my parents and grandparents gives me roots here. It helps too that my grandmother was a history buff. She could rattle off who married who […]

Romance and a Cup of Tea

by Suzanne D. Williams So there I was, Kindle in hand, ready to read, and my thoughts went something like this: Ah, a romance story. This should be good. Chapter one, enter main male character. Rugged cowboy who used to live here. Gotcha. I clicked. Next page. Enter female character. Oh, I like […]

Why I Wrote MISSING?

By Suzanne Williams I have been a nonfiction writer for years, writing how-to articles and devotionals, so when the idea to write a fiction story came into my head, no one was more surprised than I was. After all, what did I know about writing fiction? This question became even truer the longer […]
