Eating Disorders

If you read my novel, you’ll notice that many of my characters suffer from eating disorders of one kind of another. One is anorexic, another is bulimic, and a third has an unofficial eating disorder that I truly believe exists – sometimes called overeating disorder or compulsive overeating disorder (you can look it up on […]

“I couldn’t put it down!”

Today, I received my first unbiasd review (meaning not from a friend or relative) and I was thrilled! I’m working on a review section of the website and will put that up as soon as I can. What comes next? Well, the first thing we need to do is get this book out to the […]

Real Psychics

My friend and neighbor finished reading my book a couple of days ago and yesterday during our semi-regular (emphasis on the “semi”) workout she asked me if I had ever met anyone who could really predict the future. I said that no, I had not, and she told me that she sometimes knew when the […]

Lasagna

First Reactions

What a great week! Touch of Fate has been available for 4 days and already I have several people telling me that they can’t put the book down! I’m just all smiles.

The Immortality Virus

I thought it would be fun to keep you up to date on what it is I’m working on for the future. Touch of Fate is my first novel, but it will not be my last! A month ago I put the words “THE END” at the bottom of a new rough draft — The […]

Back to the beginning…

Today it occurred to me that in all my posts about how and where my novel was, I never took you back to the very beginning. When did I start Touch of Fate? How did I get the idea? How many drafts did I go through and how long did it take to write? Before […]

How do I get published?

Now that I am officially published, I feel more confident answering this question. It is the first thing everyone wants to know when I tell them I have a book out. First, I got published by writing a quality novel. I don’t mean to sound harsh, but if your writing is no good then nobody […]
