Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers yearlong blog hop. For  week 46, the writing prompt is: Let Me Brag for a Minute This is a dangerous topic! My ego is, shall we say, well developed, and I’m somewhat prone to tooting my own horn. Of course, that’s only natural for an oboist, right? Whose […]

This month I want to do two things: 1) crow, and 2) advertise. Crow I attended last month’s InD’Scribe conference, run by InD’Tale Magazine, a good resource for indie and […]

Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers yearlong blog hop. For  week 42, the writing prompt is: A Person Who Inspires Me This topic would’ve been simpler when I was young and more easily inspired, rather than old and cynical. Thinking back, though, it’s easy enough to remember some of my idols. Albert Einstein Thanks […]
