Writing in Multiple Genres

on August 22, 2017

by Linda O. Johnston I’ve been talking a lot lately about writing in multiple genres and thought I’d do so here, too.  I had a blog posted about it at another site, plus I talked about it at the Santa Clarita Romance Authors meeting last weekend.

Shark Attack–Terror or Treat?

on August 18, 2017

The opening shark attack scene in my new release, FORSAKEN, is 100% true–at least that’s the way it played out in my mind! LOL! I’m horrible with dates, but waaaay back in maybe 1999? Hubby and I decided to become certified divers. The training was fairly straightforward, aside from far too much math, and culminated… Read More

Research, the Engine for Story

on July 11, 2017

Lyn Cote asks – Is this the right cover for my book?

on June 14, 2017

Autumn’s Shadow is the second book in my “Northern Intrigue” series, set in ‘Steadfast, Wisconsin, a small town whose people and mysteries you may never forget.’ The other three books in the series sell well, but this title lags behind. I want to know why. I love all my books and don’t want any to… Read More
