Confessions of a Hybrid Author | It’s Not a Quantum Leap, But…

It’s fascinating to me that so many authors start with a story, and that story becomes their first finished rough draft and then, their first published book–no matter how long it takes them to accomplish each of those stages. That is not how my writing journey started. The first rough draft I ever finished tookContinue reading “Confessions of a Hybrid Author | It’s Not a Quantum Leap, But…”

#RocktoberMusicFest ♫ “Aaliyah Remembered” & “Change (In The House of Flies)” – Queen Of The Damned Soundtrack

Anne Rice, author of Queen of the Damned, has been my absolute, 100% favorite author since I was a teen and read Interview With The Vampire about a year before it was made into a movie, which triggered a lifelong obsession with her books, spanning all of her genres and pseudonyms. Aaliyah was one ofContinue reading “#RocktoberMusicFest ♫ “Aaliyah Remembered” & “Change (In The House of Flies)” – Queen Of The Damned Soundtrack”

Get Your Read On

The Daily guru’s are calling today’s Prompt “The Great Divide.”  Codswallop!  There’s no division in reading, that’s arithmetic – which I loathe like the dentist’s chair!  Just for that, I’m ‘dividing’ your two-part question! When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non-fiction? Both.  I’ll normally choose fiction when I want to be entertained,Continue reading “Get Your Read On”

Share Your World – Week 10 – A Club Introvert Special

Since I’m behind, I missed the first Club Introvert Social Gathering, but I hope it’s not too late to contribute.  For the special event, Cee’s wife, Chris from 61 Musings, created Week 10’s questions.

Interview With a Vampesque Type Being

So, the Daily Prompters are asking us to commit plagiarism today and then call it flattery.  I’m not sure how blurred the lines are between imitation and copyright infringement, so I’m going to do a little “Borrowing.”  One of my favorite authors (as I’ve mentioned at least 1,000,000 times already), is the uncontested Queen ofContinue reading “Interview With a Vampesque Type Being”
