Writing on the Go


It’s been an exciting start to the year and already I have learned so much more on my writing journey. At the beginning of 2015, I set myself a list of goals, and so far I’m pleased to find I’m on track. Although, that could change at any time. Here’s what I’ve been up to so far:

  • Hadassah holds a copy of her book, Courage and Conquerors

    Two years ago I met an inspirational lady named Hadassah Pomeroy. Hadassah grew up in Tel Aviv during World War II and her life reads like a book on its own. Last year I worked closely with Hadassah to write, edit and publish her collection of short stories, Courage and Conquerors. It was a long, educational and insightful journey for both of us because Hadassah writes her manuscripts in a beautiful, flowing handwriting and they need to be interpreted and typed up. Every moment of that journey was worth it when Hadassah held the first copy of her book in her hands. The fabulous cover was created by Patti Roberts at Paradox Book Covers and Hadassah was overwhelmed at the beauty of her wolf cover.

    Last year I got together with thirteen other fabulous Escape Publishing authors, and we created Ainslie Paton’s brainchild, Cafe Nix. This project seemed bigger than Ben Hur, but with great direction, a logical marketing plan, team effort and Ainslie’s whip-cracking, we went live ahead of schedule on Wattpad. Edited by Belinda Holmes, Cafe Nix will be up on Smashwords on April 2 for your reading pleasure. If you can’t wait until then…check it out on Wattpad.

  • This year I tried my hand at a little magic by sharing some short stories on Wattpad, two of which were entries in the RWA Little Gems contest. We all need a Touch of Magic every now and then in this crazy world we live in. I’m thrilled to say it’s getting quite a few views. Take a peek and let me know what you think.
  • I love Greek Mythology, so I tested the boundaries of my imagination by bringing a couple of Greek gods back to life. Seriously, what sane man tells a 21st Century woman he’s an honest-to-god Greek god? Ajax the Great does in Finding Paradise. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how his story goes…
  • Last but not least, I finally got down to the business of creating a newsletter. Not one that will hit your mailbox with annoying regularity, but one I hope will be informative, exciting and readable at erratic intervals when the muse strikes or if there is news to celebrate.
