The month started with the Licensing Expo. 12 hour days, with no time to relax. I didn’t get much time to read then, but the rest of the month eased. Lots of good reading, more than I thought I could cover here, which is why this is a bit late. I’m also still cogitating about whether or not to post a novel I read through […]
Yeah, it took me that long to get past an abusive publishing relationship and a few life events, so that I could feel light and hopeful again. I planned to write Hidden Charm as soon as I finished Charming Blue in 2011. Instead, I found myself fighting my publishing company, demanding that they release me from my contract because the editor who handled my work […]
May started much better than any other month in 2019. I carved out some time late in the day to get reading done, even if I hadn’t finished my email or any of the other work I had. I was really feeling the lack of leisure reading time and it was starting to have an impact on my writing. Lots of good reading this month, […]
I told you all last time how thrilled I am that we are rebranding my Kristine Grayson books. WMG Publishing released the first three books that I wrote as Kristine Grayson in an omnibus last month, called The Charming Trilogy Vol. 1. There’s a lot of extras in that book, including essays about writing and some lovely light promotion pieces. This month, we have three […]
I figured Gavin would get your attention. When he looks at me like that, he usually gets mine. I promised you a week or so ago that I would have a lot of fun announcements, and I do! I’m going to try to spread the news out a bit, but that’s tough, because there’s so much of it. Fun Fantasy Romance First, for those of […]
I’m starting this at the beginning of the month, but I can already tell this will be a spare version of the list. I’m reading 1.3 million words of fiction this month, since I didn’t have time to start last month for the Anthology workshop which starts (started) on March 1. So the bulk of my reading time is reading manuscripts, some of which you […]
LizBet wants to accept Van’s marriage proposal, but she can’t say yes until she figures out what to do about her last name. Should she take his? Should she keep hers? Such a simple thing. How come it feels so hard?
“Name-calling,” by bestselling author Kristine Grayson, is free on this website for one week only.
Fortunately, December started better than November in regards to the reading. Good nonfiction and fiction, some of which is listed below. (Some is just too…I don’t know. It doesn’t inspire me to share.) I also line edited a Fiction River and started line editing another, since I’m workshop heavy in my reading in January and February. Speaking of Fiction River, I failed to call attention […]
A few weeks ago, I asked my Patreon supporters to let me know what they thought were the big take-aways in 2018. Since I had so many life changes and adventures in 2018, I wasn’t able to keep up on everything in the industry the way I usually do. The Patreon folk came through, and I have a list, which goes with my Master Business […]
