The website is at https://www.campfirewriting.com/ and you can pick and choose which writing modules you want. The software is … Continue reading Looking at the Campfire Website and Software
I've been busy this last week, even if I was feeling pretty awful. I got TWO of Holly's How to Revise Your Novel lessons done: And I'm plugging along on lesson 8. And then, I've fallen in love with watching artists paint in gouache, so much so that my husband is getting me a set … Continue reading Creative Update
I'm plugging along on the novel I'm outlining, working title 'Girlie'. Yes, my working titles are terrible.

What color are the best friend's eyes in book one? It … Continue reading Story Bible
When I published my first novel, I didn't have the money, after all the $3000+ in expenses, to hire a content editor, so I muddled along with beta readers and a proof reader. This was a mistake. I'm not 100% happy with the result. Now that I'm revising book two, I want to get it … Continue reading Officially On a Content Editor’s Schedule!
I loved the cover for book two SO much, and it was done by a different artist than book one, even though its the same studio. Here is a cut from it: So, for marketing materials I commissioned the same artist to do character portraits of the love interests. Can you guess who? It's Hakon! … Continue reading Character Artwork
