Tuesday talk

Good morning all It's been a couple of Tuesdays since last I wrote. Being a history person, I've been totally consumed with history in the making. In fact, I've got some seeds germinating for my next series which I'll get to someday. I still have a couple more in my...

Choosing Names

As I begin writing the next book in my Everyday Goddess series, I've decided to introduce some potential new inductees to the women's sacred circle. (Just in case I don't want the series to end.) Every name I've chosen to this point has come from some mythical legend....

Where do I go from here?

I've written a few series over the last few years and have had my fair share of marketing woes. How do you get someone interested enough to pick up your book? Social media? Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, blogs? Word of mouth? Reviews? I asked a friend to help me write...
