Morgan Worth, Editor, Beta Reader, Proofreader

Morgan and I bumped into each other on social media. Since she offers services for beta reading and proofreading I thought it would be wonderful to have a description of what these two things are and how they work if you hire someone. Tell us a little about yourself I get paid to read books! … Continue reading Morgan Worth, Editor, Beta Reader, Proofreader

A Fresh Pair of Eyes

Barbara Ardinger is an editor I've used and trust. When I edit, she's my go to person for questions because of her background and her extensive knowledge. I asked her to share some of her knowledge in a post. Here is one snippet of what she does. Trying to finish your book or magazine article? … Continue reading A Fresh Pair of Eyes

Unexpected Blessings

Normally I am really focused on writing, crocheting, and my day job.  I've not been soliciting for editing or freelance work.  This summer I've been working really hard to get my books noticed more and to draw in more readers. While the insanity of creating a new cover, updating my website, working on my blurbs and … Continue reading Unexpected Blessings

Back at the Grindstone

With nine days off, you would think I got a lot accomplished.  I did when it comes to spending time with my girls but off my to-do list?  Not so much. I got 70 stars made but I need to get 30 more done.  I'd like to get them done sooner rather than later.  But … Continue reading Back at the Grindstone

On a Roll

The words flow from me and I'm working hard on a number of projects.  I finished and published Wayfarer Evolution.  I've got other manuscripts edited and I'm hoping to get them on the computer soon.  In the meanwhile, I've started - or restarted - this story I've had in my slush pile.  I'm 55K into … Continue reading On a Roll

Crossing Off

Last night I wrote until 2 am.  You would think I would be able to sleep in.  Nope, eyes popped open early and while I attempted to sleep some more, I only dozed.  I was still up by 7:30.  I was determined to get things done today. I tackled my desk.  I organized paperwork by … Continue reading Crossing Off

Comedy of Errors

Last night I decided I was going to write.  Several people have been bugging me for the next installment in the Wayfarer series and I've been working on the novel but it isn't flowing easily.  This  happens sometimes.  My normal response is to wait it out because when it isn't flowing, I need to go … Continue reading Comedy of Errors

Projects – Done and To Do

This week I've finished the scarves and the afghan for my student workers' graduation gifts.  I've given one gift which is why I'm posting the two pictures.  For the afghan, I need to take pictures.  I plan to publish four of the scarf patterns and the afghan pattern.  This adds to my list of crochet … Continue reading Projects – Done and To Do

A Compliment

I know I'm a good writer and editor.  While my books aren't perfect, I know I tell a good story.  However, there are days when I feel like I can't do anything right. Writing is a tough job which requires dedication, concentration, and perseverance.  One of the things I struggle with daily for writing is … Continue reading A Compliment

Where does the time go?

I’ve been working on getting excerpts from all my novels to use for marketing the books.  I’ve gotten through all my poetry books, meditation book, Wayfarer series and a few others.  I have to go back through and get links on this page so everything is in one place and makes it easy to copy … Continue reading Where does the time go?
