Guest Post in Chuck Sambuchino’s WRITERS DIGEST column!

Over the weekend my wit ‘n wisdom was featured in Chuck Sambuchino’s fabulous Writers Digest column. It’s called “The Writer’s Journey: How Much (can) Someone Possibly Stand?” What I’m talking about is how much a writer has to go through to get where they want to be, the hours, the sacrifices, the research, etc. Here’s a snippet: So there’s this, there’s all of this, and yet as hard as you work, shuffling schedules to make room for those two blissful hours alone, polishing that manuscript until it screeches surrender, querying in bunches and crossing your fingers, there it comes again, that blasted, callous bit of communication that so effortlessly denies you entrance. So you steal more hours, polish some more and once again type that header: QUERY: Historical Thriller 80k–and it’s almost as if you’re stuck in a copier churning out denied, denied, DENIED. DENIED.

ARC Review: What I Love About You by Rachel Gibson

First there is Blake. He’s an ex-SEAL and now a private military contractor who is battling his demons, alcohol and PTSD (though he swears he doesn’t have PTSD). He moves to Truly, Idaho to get away from it all and see if he can put his life back together after rehab. What he doesn’t want is the lovely lady next door or her cute 5-year-old daughter. But you can’t always get what you want, but as the song says, “Sometimes you...
