It’s not a genre I often read… Overall, I enjoyed it and found that once I got into it,

There is something about the setting of a story I’m writing that means a lot to me. I find myself drawn to places that have meant something in my life. In several of my books, or short stories you will find that the forest plays a central role. Growing up in New Hampshire, the woods surrounded me. It wasn’t until I was older that I realized how important the mystery of this world was to me.
In my novel, The Weaver, I use the forest behind my college campus as the place where Laney not only encounters danger, but also love. My freshman year in college, I took an adventure class where we spent a lot of time on the ropes course in the woods. I had to face my own fears by climbing the “pamper pole.” This was a large pole, kind of…

An awesome review by an awesome reviewer!
A short while ago, I was approached by Robbie Cheadle, a great blogger buddy of mine, with a request.
She is branching out into writing horror fiction – another string to her already impressive bow, wife, mother, children’s author, baker, blogger, financial whizz… and now this too!
Robbie has had two stories chosen to be included in a new collection of spooky short tales, the second volume of Dan Alatorre’s collections, named Dark Visions: an anthology of 34 horror stories from 27 authors: Volume 2 (The Box Under The Bed)
She wondered whether I may have the time to peruse this collection, which includes 34 short horror stories, perfect for this time of year, and possibly leave a review.
And I have to say, I jumped at the chance! I have had the first volume on my TBR pile since it was published, and haven’t been able to read…

Check out that awesome review!
Do me a favor and go mark it as “helpful.”
Really, think about snagging a copy at that great price, too.
You know you want to.
You deserve it.
Check these pictures out.
What do you see?
Hmm.. I THINK if you click the image, it gets bigger. Or maybe just lean in close.
Also, some of the pictures below will be utilized with some of those above covers (bear with me):
Got any clue?
I’m not doing a very good job of explaining this, am I?
Imagine the different covers with the different images. Some cropped, some flipped… any help?
Okay, this is kinda going of in the wrong direction.
My book Double Blind – the one that’s in that big 25-book anthology with all the New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors – reverts back to me on February 28th.
One of the really cool and super helpful authors in that anthology, who has made the New York Times bestseller list FOUR times, said the book ought to kick off a series and to release a new book in the series – ready for this? – every six weeks.
It’s my opinion if a FOUR TIME New York Times Bestselling Author gives you book writing advice, you should take it.
Release a book every six weeks? That means you basically have to have the next books in the series written before you launch the series, unless you can write a whole book in six weeks.
That’s almost five months. I should be able to do that, right? And if it goes well, I should be able to write another one in the six weeks after that. (That’s how long it took to write the first one, Double Blind.)
The clock starts today. I’ve been kicking around ideas for the next story; I guess I’ll jot them down and make an outline and get started.
