Two years ago, I was approached by fellow writer Paul White with a proposition. He had an idea. He wanted to bring quality books to readers. Recognizing that readers often had limited time to read, he proposed writing and publishing novelettes, short books that cost less than a full-sized novel and offered a good story that could be read while commuting to work or school, … Continue reading Happy 2nd Anniversary Electric Eclectic
August has been a hectic month for me. In fact, I’ve barely had time to read. At the beginning of the month, I was one of the authors attending Indie Bookfest 2019 at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, Florida. Accompanied by my PA, Kathy, we spent four whirlwind days meeting other authors and readers, selling and signing books, and I even got to speak … Continue reading Events! Events! Events!

Some cities and states don’t begin until after Labor Day, which gives those lucky folks some more time to enjoy the bliss of lounging by the pool, on the beach, or in the … Continue reading You Should Be Reading
I’ve been a follower of Amazon Top Reviewer Gisela Hausmann’s “how to” books for a while. Her advice on writing effective e-mails, getting book and product reviews, and more have become a staple in my library.

Using humor, Hausmann shows readers what NOT to do when writing … Continue reading “BAT SHIT CRAZY Review Requests: Email Humor” by Gisela Hausmann

I recently reviewed the fourth and final book in The Troubadours Quartet, a historical romantic adventure series by award-winning author Jean Gill. “Song Hereafter” is a beautiful conclusion to a remarkable tale set in the twelfth century. I was fascinated by the names of many of her characters who come from different countries and cultures. She has graciously agreed to be my guest today, satisfying … Continue reading Naming characters in medieval historical novels: The Troubadours Quartet: Jean Gill
It’s my pleasure to welcome author Neil Douglas Newton to my blog. He also happens to be my husband. Neil is one of the authors who contributed a short story to the crime noir anthology, Cons Dames & G-Men. Take it away Neil!

After finishing the final rough draft (yeah, sure) and before emailing it to an editor, I wanted it as clean possible. I… Continue reading 19 Self-Editing Tips For Your Writing
