At the end of a long and trying week, I needed to blow off some steam, and what better way to do that than some labor-intensive chores. I took a moment from that to talk about one of the highlights of my week, getting to brainstorm a story.
Two of the beta readers came to me after I published the book afraid I might end our friendship when I heard what they had to say. I’d given them copies with no edits and explained so at the time, but for them, the spelling errors had been so distracting, they couldn’t get very far.
I have to make something clear. Those things, that list the reasons I stopped writing, they are all still there. Being busy, major life events, they still happen, but I need to find a balance. I need to figure out how to make all of it work. This is not going to be easy, but if I want to be an author, it is something I need to do.
Wish me luck.
As I said in my bloghop post I would be tagging two other authors in the blog hop thing.
The second of those two authors is my friend and voice actor extraordinaire, Doc Coleman.
As I said in my last post I would be tagging two other authors in the blog hop thing.
The first of those two authors is my friend and co-founder of Flying Island Press, Zachary Ricks.
In all fairness. At this point I don’t have that much of a farm, our sheep have all been turned into food, or given back to their owners, and we just have chickens who really don’t take much work, but the sheep are coming back, and there is always the chance that we could fall off the grid at some point and go “full time farmer,” as my kids say. But back to the question.
. The chickens had all been very good with the kids, but this one had a look about it that said it was about to become soup.
As a fiction writer, I think this important to keep in mind as we name our organizations, and groups, locations and star ships. Those names is determine how our readers perceive them.

I read and listen to a lot of indie authors every year. Some years I am totally blown away by what I find. So here are 5 books for this year, That I hope to be blown away by.
