“This was an amazing story full of romance and a chance encounter.” – Short Steamy Romance – Evangeline: A Christmas Romance by Angela Gray

Angela Evangeline Animated GIF-downsized_large.gif

Line Blurb

Ten long years since she arrived in New York from Canada. Ten years since she ran away from what she thought would be her future. Forced to go home to escape a nasty situation, Evangeline comes face to face with her past and the one person that she never wanted to see. Shane is there, and it seems he isn’t ready to back down this time. Things are getting hot in chilly Canada.

What a great novel about a mother’s sacrifice!

The first book I’ve read by this author, I was not disappointed!
As you read this book, you wonder how it will end. Will the mother be right or will there be a surprise ending? You’ll have to read the book to find out. What a bonus with the added recipes. They come from an Italian wife. Being married to an Italian and I love to cook, I can’t wait to try some of these dishes and pass them to our children. My mother in law did…

“My heart nearly broke for the poor Prince, betrayed, and hurt.” – The Prince: A Crown and Dagger Book Three: (The Never Lands Saga) by Andi Lawrencovna

Andi the prince 0

#amwriting, #novel, #mswl, #romanticfantasy, #darkfantasy, #paranormalfantasy

It’s time. Within a year the Prince must die, or he and his people and his kingdom will survive uncontested. Within a year, but there are those already on the move, already lying in wait to fulfill fate. Reports of a mercenary army have begun to spread throughout the land. Soldiers have been called to prepare for war and captains have been summoned to lead them. Spies have been sent forth to gather information. Assassins have been requisitioned to hunt out those meant to die.
And princes have been sent to hide deep within the woods.
Kit can’t help looking around every corner for his Captain far away on her own mission. Perhaps he should look harder for the trees to hide more secrets than just the elves of the forest.
How long can you hide from your enemies find you? How long can…

Novel editing: How to fix a boring chapter

Uninspired Writers

I try to keep each weekly blog post relevant to my own writing journey. This week, I struggled through the heart crushing moment of realising one of your chapters is BORING. It’s tough to admit. I tried playing it down at first, but eventually I held up my hands. Because if the writer thinks it’s dull, imagine how uninteresting it’ll be for the reader. It took a lot of work, but I’m happy with it now. If you’ve stumbled across a boring scene in your work, here’s some tips to fix it.

Figure out what it’s lacking
Read through the chapter, and take notes. Figuring out what it’s lacking. Ask yourself questions, such as Is there a sense of place? Can I see the characters? and Does this chapter move the story forward? Perhaps the setting is too vague to create an atmosphere. Perhaps the characters are simply there…

Who do you think you’re kidding? Writers’ dirty little secret — how to right-size Impostor Syndrome. – by Ruth Harris…

on Anne R. Allen:

Fake it until you make it. It’s old advice, and for some people it works.

Sometimes.

But what if you’ve made it?

You’ve finished your book (or books), you’ve been published or you self-published. You’ve sold copies, you’ve received checks from your agent, your publisher or from Amazon and iBooks, you’ve been invited to speak at your local bookstore, other writers in your crit group ask you for advice — and you still feel like a faker?

“Thoroughly enjoyed this collection of short stories” -BEYOND THE VEIL: STORIES OF THE PARANORMAL by Marta Moran Bishop, Patricia Moran, Roman Nyle, Pat Marsden

From the horror of a psychopath killer with extraordinary powers, to true ghost stories, and stories that leave you wondering, if their is a place for everybody or if some are really just lost in their own minds, you will find that story in this collection of short stories by Patricia Moran, Marta Moran Bishop, Roman Nyle, and Pat Marsden.

Thoroughly enjoyed this collection of short stories. Most were different from the usual paranormal stories as they ended leaving the reader to decide what will happen. Fun and entertaining.

“This one tugged at my heartstrings.” – Where There’s Faith (Fairfield Corners Book 3) by L.A. Remenicky

Lori WTF Teaser 6

#Hoosierauthor #FairfieldCorners

A past she can’t remember. A love he can’t forget. After losing everything in an accident that he can only blame himself for, Robbie Newlin embraced sobriety and tried to live his life quietly alone at this family’s cottage on the lake. Grief being his only ally, Robbie was perfectly content with how he lived until Faith moved into the cottage next door. Now, Faith, had him questioning whether to keep grieving or to open his broken heart to let love in again. Faith McMillan had no memory of her life before that day three years ago. The physical scars had faded, but the emotional ones were still fresh and raw. Living rent-free seemed like a great way to finish her second book and give her the time to figure out her next move, but then she met the reclusive guy next door and everything changed. To get past…
