  I haven’t written a post in a long while as life pressures have intervened. It’s crazy how stress dries up creative juices. It also translated into writers block for my book writing …but the log jam is breaking. It is January 1, 2016 and I’m ready to mentally drop 2015 into the dust bin and celebrate the dreams and possibilities …

Today I’d like you to meet a fellow author in Paper Crane Books. I met Morgan when she joined the press a couple of years ago. She is a lovely, creative person, a spinner of tales and a teacher.  It is a delightful combination. She agreed to sit down with me for an interview. Please welcome my friend Morgan. (*applause from the audience*) #1. …

A while ago I was tagged by my friend and fellow indie author Jade Kerrion to participate in a chain letter / ongoing blog tour. The idea was to have fun and to pass that convivial moment forward.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to do a “GEM“(Guest Excerpt Moment) with Author Grace Augustine and featured her second book in the series. At that time she was extremely busy where she works and couldn’t do an interview. Today I boarded my virtual plane and flew to Iowa to meet with her. She took just a moment …

Todays interview is with author Linda Fulton. From my corner of the U.S. I boarded my luxury virtual plane and flew to northern Louisiana near Arkansas. I was able to sleep well, tucked in amongst the fluffy clouds and the flight crew was great, getting me there for a morning visit. Approaching Linda’s home was a visual treat. I swear …

Today I am starting a new feature: Guest Excerpt Moment…or GEM and my first visit is with Ch’kara SilverWolf. I got up early to catch the virtual flight to Australia and am presently sitting in her backyard having tea. The crisp fall air is still and the wisps of steam from the fragrant brew soothes my jet lag. I look …

Holly adapting, author, balance, ecomonics, human brain, inspiration, Patience and writing, persevere, the creative process Leave a Comment

I have often heard that we must bang out something every day if we are serious in becoming a writer. Just set aside some time and do it. There is something to be said for that. Often if we work at something frequently we get better at it. The problem that I have with the statement is two fold. It …

What Genre Are My Books?

What is in a label?  I have been told that my writing is somewhat hard to classify with today’s readers. By that I mean that what the readers anticipate or expect when they see “Science Fiction” or “Fantasy” is not really what they are finding between the covers of my books. That isn’t the fault of the genre label as …
