My Favourite Guest Posts for Dark Moon Part II

I’m posting today another one of the blogs that I wrote when I was doing my major promo for Dark Moon. I always love hearing about other people’s processes, and because of that I’ve had a number of guests share a little of their own on this blog.

I just pressed ‘send’ on Healer Moon

I’m all nervous and fluttery. I’ve just done that hugely difficult thing – pressed ‘send’ to my editors and agent on the novel I’ve been working on for the past year. Blood sweat and tears (both mine and my fabulous critique group – thanks especially to Marnie, my Beta reader on this one) has gone into writing and redrafting and … Read More

My Favourite Guest Posts for Dark Moon Pt 1

The last few months have been a bit of a blur in regards to all the guest posts I’ve written for Dark Moon.

I’ve just been over on Mary Costello’s blog where Mary allowed me to prattle on about a subject that isn’t much written about. (http://marycostelloauthor.wordpress.com) I was talking about sidekicks and secondary characters and why I think they are winners too and I thought I’d share it here too.

Writing and motherhood – Guest Blog with Destiny Romance

I’m talking today on the Destiny Romance blog about how I handle writing and motherhood and why I do it. So many people ask me how I manage to fit it all in and why I would do such a hellish thing. How on earth did I manage to write my first novel, Killing Me Softly, let alone a second … Read More
