A Partnership

The Universe has an interesting way of showing you direction sometimes. As a now happily independent author I am always thinking of ways to get books into the hands of readers. With the ever changing face of publishing these days, I've noticed a few trends that helps authors do this. One of them is cross promoting. A few weeks ago I started looking at books that were in the same genre as mine. My thinking was that it would be great to have a support system and to build the alliance with another author(s).

As this train of thought was going through my head, life got busy as it always does and I let the idea go for a bit. However, The Universe must have liked the idea because a few days after I had started thinking about it I received an e-mail from another author who had the same idea and was wanting to do some cross promotion with me.

As we started trading e-mails and I read his book (which is an International bestseller and is currently on the top 15 Kindle list), we learned a few things about each other. One is we live a mile apart--and we live in the middle of nowhere. Not many out where we live. He also has four dogs and two horses! We decided to meet and talk shop.

It didn't take long for either of us to realize that two minds like ours (demented) could get together and write one heckuva dark and twisted thriller together.

I am pleased to announce that Andrew E. Kaufman my neighbor and partner in crime and I are going to be releasing a co-authored psychological thriller together.

Stay tuned as more announcements will be coming.

If you have not read Andrew's latest thriller (THE LION, THE LAMB, AND THE HUNTED, I suggest that you do. http://www.amazon.com/Lion-Lamb-Hunted-Psychological-ebook/dp/B006HWXKD4/ref=zg_bs_digital-text_15

Also, COVERT REICH  will be free for Kindle tomorrow and Sunday. If you like a little conspiracy with your suspense, give it a try. http://www.amazon.com/Covert-Reich-ebook/dp/B006BHWSJM/ref=pd_sim_kstore_3?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2

Good luck to both of you on the project. You're on to something.
Very exciting! I know Drew well and absolutely love The Lion, The Lamb, The Hunted, so can't wait to see what the two of you cook up! And I'll be looking for your books, Michele!

I Need a Name for My Next Victim

So I have finally started breathing new energy into my writing career. Yes--I have been in a slump. I'll admit it. Life became insanely stressful and busy over this past year and instead of my usual 3 books a year, I have not written a manuscript for a year. Gulp--I said it--well sort of (I wrote it). Lucky for me, I did have some new books released into the world, (Patron and Happy Hour) but now it's time to get back to business.

My problem as a writer has always been that I have a bazillion ideas running through my head at any given time, and I want to write them ALL right at that moment. That becomes overwhelming because let's face it, it's an impossible task. Then, I lose my focus in the haze of overwhelm and I top it off with outside stress from just plain old life, and then all I want to do is go spend time with my horses because 1. they don't talk back., 2. they are very forgiving souls, 3. they don't judge. In other words, they are perfect for stress re…

Superpowers

I love talking to my son. He's so... so.... interesting. And opinionated.

Kid: Mommy, if you could have any superpower at all, what would it be?

Me (without missing a beat): My power would be to magically clean the house. Particularly the dishes.

The kid shoots me death ray looks. 


Me (scurrying to make up for this hideously stupid remark): I wish I could fly.

Kid (looking pointedly at me and speaking rather snidely): I would have the power to teleport to another dimension.

Shit. The kid totally out-cooled me and he knows it.

Next time I'll do better. I promise.









Lukewarm Topics

Michele was kind enough (or just not well thought-out enough) to ask me to blog with her. In another naive move, she gave me her password so I took it upon myself to screw with her blog and move everything around. Poor woman. Anyhow, I took a very formal survey on Facebook about which inane subjects the public would like me to address. Those View ladies have “Hot Topics” but I’m just going with “Lukewarm Topics That Have No Important Bearing on the World Whatsoever.”

So by request, here are my thoughts on today’s pressing issues:

Twitter: There is no way to discuss Twitter without sounding vulgar. “I tweeted/twatted/twittered….” Any way you put it makes it sound like you’re busy getting yourself off. Which maybe you are, but I don’t want to know about it. And if I did want to know about it, I’d certainly want more than 140 characters of detail. Go the Carrie Prejean route. Live a little. The bigger problem I have is that Twitter confuses me because I can’t keep track of anyone, so I wri…
