Welcome to my nitty-gritty writer’s nook. This site came to be when three roads collided in my mind and heart.
1) Research: It is my favorite part of the brainstorming process when I am writing.
2) Writing: As I wrote my first novel, I witnessed a pattern in the questions other new writers asked on community sites across social media.
3) Marketing: To sell, I must market. To market I must (A) have a social presence and (B) know how to talk the talk.
Here, you will find evidence of these three roads well travelled.
My blog allows me a space to bring together what I hear and research, to share that information with others, and to continue to learn. My motto: research, compile, present, and repeat. Jump in.
My quick check dictionary is an ever expanding page of descriptions of words and acronyms I encounter when researching and learning in the world of writers.
My author page provides a place for me to connect to readers who are interested in short stories and novels that explore our psychological being.
I am glad you are here. Please let me know if there are things you would like to see on these pages, if you are interested in having me do a guest blog on your site (or you would like to do one on mine), and/or if you just enjoy stopping by from time-to-time.
