New contribution to Totally Novel on writing, update on Sweet Sixteen Killer

Image
I've been pretty quiet lately on the blog, sorry about that. I've been laying mostly low, though I did recently begin contributing to a new website for writers and readers called Totally Novel. My first contribution for members of the site is a post I titled 3 things that prevented me from writing a novel. To read the post, sign up for a free trial. Take a look around and if you don't wanna stay, don't renew membership. That said, it's a pretty cool effort being put together by a former Google+ member like myself. As a matter of fact there are several members on the site from the old Google+ days. (Side note: there is a free membership option)
I will be contributing to the Totally Novel blog bi-monthly for now. My next addition will be in August. I'm super excited for the site and I hope you can come join us and become a part of the groups, forums, blog, workshops, and more. 
All that said, I haven't given up here. This is still my primary site and blog. 👊

If you reshare an Instagram post... is it called a Latergram?

My latest book lands October 1, pre-order now

Image
The latest book that will be added to my authorly resume is a collaborative piece called Gun. Here's the quick run-down:



The citizens of Salem suffer more than their fair share of life’s ills. Murder. Mayhem. Jealousy. Greed. But when a mysterious handmade Gun shows up on the scene, nothing will ever be the same. For this Gun has its own moral code. It will never fire to do evil, only to do good. As it tumbles in and out of the lives of ordinary citizens - junkies, clerks, cops, criminals, unfaithful husbands - they find their lives changed forever. Sometimes for the better; sometimes for worse.

Born from pain, built for good.

The String-Along project is a collaborative effort where multiple authors, in locations around the globe, come together to tell a singular story. Sometimes not knowing where to go with a story until the previous author in rotation provides a chapter update. The first in the series is called Fatal Flaws and can be found online in both paperback and digital form…

I'm on Goodreads and stuff

I've had an account on Goodreads for many years, but have never made much use of it. But as our next collaborative novel is coming out this October 1, I've been trying to be better about promoting myself as an author as well as the book. And so, for the first time ever, I set up my author profile. Click here to check out my author profile. Make sure to follow my author profile while you're there.I'm also using their built-in question/answer tool, so feel free to ask me questions about writing and so on. I'll do my best to answer them. I've got a few answers there already. Click here to ask questions or read previous answers.Shoutout to @Eustacia Tan and her recent blog post about why she is still uncomfortable with Katherine Hale -- the post and discussion got me rethinking my opinion towards Goodreads. Thanks! 😉
