Writing… News

I have a love hate relationship with starting a new book. I just completed a novella (Where Your Heart Finds Home) for an anthology. I have another (No Official title AI) due in three weeks. I’m writing all over the place…unable to focus on a genre. But I am having fun. I just wrote my first sweet romance. I have a follow up plan for a series or a major novel called Off Season in the Hamptons. It’s sketched out and scheduled for a mid year 2022 release.

My February short story is a teaser for my sci-fi novel also planned for 2022. I might put that one off until early 2023. It’s a Brave New World meets a Dystopian World reality.

Power of the Light – Long excerpt

““Come, I pulled out the books I thought we’d need. Let me show you what I found.” The inside of Brianna’s office was strewn with every imaginable reference book on ancient Irish mythology. On her special table lay a large leather bound book with scrolling gold letters stating the tome’s title. The Key of Solomon was written in bold script across the cover. She slipped on a pair of white gloves, picked up the page turner, and carefully opened the book. The gloves protected the ancient pages from the oil on her hands when she inspected the book on the research table. The area where she worked was covered as well. She explained, “I think this may have some of the answers we’re looking for. The book contains a collection of magical work taken from earlier manuscripts. Something you mentioned made me think this could be a great source of information about the murder weapons. Some of these references date back as early as the sixteenth century. I discovered pictures of weapons fitting the description you provided last night. Back at University, while I worked with my research on The Book of Kells, my illuminated manuscript project, I remembered another reference book I’d seen Rjiardon working with on occasion.” “We may need to speak to him, too, if this information leads to something. Do you think he’d be willing to get involved?” “I’m beginning to sense destiny at hand here. Will he have a choice when the time comes?” “He could always say ‘no’. From what we read, it is said, the Gemini must embrace their gifts to evolve fully. You know yourself many deny the gift of their own free will. Rjiardon has never been totally open with us, and he may be one of those who won’t accept his power.” Morgan thought of her other soul and his stubborn refusal to acknowledge their connection. “You may be right about Rjiardon, but I’m sure he’ll help us with the weapons.””

Explode From the Depths of Undiscovered Treasures

I was reading spam today… Sometimes it sparks a thought. The company mentioned how authors spend so much time writing their books only to see them buried beneath tons of virtual books online.

Frankly, I remember walking into libraries and bookstores experiencing the smell of the pulp and ink, and that overwhelming sensation of “so many books–so little time.” Where to begin…

I worked in a library in college and learned how to search and whittle down my preferences, yet still the numbers and varieties of books are vast and countless.

I love books… especially tangible books. But having a library or bookstore in the palm of my hand…think of it, the knowledge of lifetimes is available electronically to anyone with an e-reader… How does one choose from all those books?

Reviewers, you see how you matter, right? Search engine developers think of your responsibilities. Librarians listed books according to categories and the N.Y. Times best seller list depended on publishers and reviewers to promote the books. Well, money still talks. Darn it.

But hope springs eternal someone once said. Every once in awhile an unknown book or author will break through the millions of new titles and rise to the top of the lists. A miracle of discovery, a gift for readers of that genre.

You know the accidental yet totally deserved success stories I’m talking about. The books that explode out of nowhere by unknown authors who have struggled with invisibility, disinterested agents, editors, and publishers.

It’s about the money. You know that and I know that.

“That isn’t what readers want.”

“We aren’t publishing that now.”

“No money in that genre.”

“It may come back but not now.”

Self publishing solved the publishing issue but money seems to be the only other way to solve the invisibility issue…or is it?

When you find that gem of a read, the one that puts a smile on your lips at the very first page and grips you to the very last, share it. Rave about it to the world, please. Word of mouth is still the best way of advertising.
