A New Beginning

I've realized that aside from the books themselves, my life is on an interesting path new writers as well as my readers may find interesting. As a freshly published novelist, less than a year out, I'm learning a lot by watching those ahead of me on the road.  The biggest lesson so far -- calm down, take a deep breath, and look around.  See where you are, figure out where you want to be, point yourself in that direction and start walking.  It's good advice going into a convention center, onto a stage, or just life.

No more over-thinking.

I am going to let my instincts guide me as I write the third novel, and as I deal with major changes in my life over the last year.  They got me this far, as I try to remind myself.  They can get me to the next step, if I am clear on what it is.

    Why do you think the “trilogy” is such a popular format for contemporary vampire-themed works? Could you comment on this in future blog postings? Thanks.

  2. I ran across your site via Novel Spaces. The concept behind your novels is very exciting; I’ve got a friend who is nuts about vampires. I’ll be at B&N this weekend and will definitely look you up. Congrats on your publication!

    Happy Writing!
