What Do YOU Think?

I’m interested in getting your thoughts about stuff I see and hear, quotes I read, stuff that passes as knowledge – and starting an authorey conversation.


This makes all the difference. Can you get your head around it?

  1. At the risk of sounding grumpy. I don’t care either way. Elaboration follows….
    Writing is great fun, while part of my motivation is to entertain. If only one or two people read it and enjoyed it. Job done. If no one reads it….Well, we’ll wait a century or two and see about that.
    (I am not a good influence on young or new writers, but this attitude has got me two kindle books under the belt this year…I’ll get double figure sales yet!)

  2. I didn’t tell anyone I was writing until it was half way done. Just didn’t want to have people asking forever… so how’s the novel you’re working on? Huh? You know the one you’ve been working on for three years? Got something new to write about now? Make the characters a little more three dimensional? Some twists and turns? A little epilogue? Everybody learns the hero’s journey isn’t always a happy one? … Yeah, that’s why I didn’t tell anyone I was writing. Thanks family guy. 🙂

    1. Ha!

      First, the more salacious the sex scenes, the more people will read it. I suppose that means the more potential embarrassment, but you have to start somewhere.

      And my dad read my sexy story book. He called me to tell me the sex scenes were really awful. Not just awful, but really awful. Thanks dad!

      He is my biggest fan, 100%, except for that book.

      That’s OK because pretty much every other person who read it found it really good, including the sex scenes.

  3. I did the opposite – when I had decided to write my first novel, I told EVERYONE I could that I was doing it – then that really made me focus and actually do it!
