Would love your comments!


I will be incorporating The Sylph's Tale into VIRGINS, first two books of Immortals- the series.
Last November I published The Sylph's Tale - book one- as a novella because I intended to do a screenplay rendition. The novella has 4-5 star ratings on Amazon and excellent reviews from my readers. The screenplay won a third-place quarter ISA award.
I am incorporating both books for three reasons: A) the main complaint from readers is that The Sylph's Tale is too short, readers want more; B) both are based on the myth of the female goddesses and the fallen angel; C) it will be easier to get an agent/publisher is the book is over 50 thousand words.

We all want people to like our work but...

Beware the flatterer - Build Book Buzz: Are you book spending decisions being blinded by flattery from less-than-scrupulous vendors. Learn why you should beware the flatterer and how to spot the villains. (Or, at least, people who are more interested in your money than your success.)

A writing schedule

After retiring, sometimes having worked a job and a half, while raising a family, I wanted to get lost in writing. Could see myself creating or finishing articles and stories I had started here and there, but it was hard to adjust to set a writing and publishing schedule. 
Boundaries diminished or changed as needs from family and home increased. It became "as soon as" I get this done, or this passes. Then came vacations and travel we had dreamed of doing. Finally, I rebelled against routines but noticed, from others in writer's groups, classes, and success gurus - in particular males - that they kept a "dead-set-schedules" for writing. While women - not from lack of discipline but because we rarely have "wives" to take care of demands and issues - and give in to tribe and community more often. We also are multi-taskers. 
One writer always says, "from 6 to 9 pm, after dinner, even if we have company, I write, every-single-day. No matter what, I lock my home-office door, and my everyone knows they cannot disturb me," his wife sitting next to him nodded. Wow
