The life of a writer has changed continuously throughout the history of the world, but one thing had remained the same...
Writers were introverted people who preferred their dark writer's caves to red carpets and cameras. But it seems that in the last five years or so with the literal boom of Indie and Self-Publishing options the roles a writer has to play has changed once again.
No longer are writers allowed to live in their fantasy worlds and sit in a dark cafe unknown and simply write. If you choose the option to be an Indie or Self Published write, you will also need to be a charismatic people person who can sell a refrigerator to an Eskimo.
But, that is pretty much a given when you take the Indie route. But, as a new unknown writer, traditional publishers are leaving all of the marketing up to these writers as well. So now, after pushing your work enough to get a publisher to publish it, you have to think about how to get people to buy it...
When will you have time to write your next great novel?
As a writer myself I am not good with trying to convince people to do anything, much less convince them that my book is the next book that needs to end up in their Kindle or on their bookshelves.
So how do other writers come out of their shell enough to get their names out there?
For a very limited time you you can get The Other Earth for FREE on Amazon for Kindle!
At that price you can't afford to pass it up!

Have you ever heard of NaNoWriMo?? It stands for National Novel Writing Month and it takes place every November. This website is what I contribute to finally making me get off of my bottom and get to writing.
That was three years ago, and since then I have written a total of 4 novels, and about half of another that was discarded because it needs to be re-written completely. With "The Other Earth" near completion, I have started to plan my third attempt at Nano.
As per usual I have started to plot and outline another Sci-Fi inspired Romance. I wanted to share my mock cover with you all and invite you to join in on the fun at http://nanowrimo.org/ and just do it. Just write a novel.
Well, I promised a synopsis of my upcoming novel... I aim to deliver...
In the year 2107 scientist discover that through a black hole exists a galaxy with a solar system and planets exactly like our own. Including a planet in the same position to their sun and properties similar to our own. They have named this The Other Earth.
Randi Rose has wanted to be a scientist since she was a little girl, pushing herself through college and finally landing a job at the S.S.E. or the Spacial Scientific Engineers. Though her job is an entry level position, she is given the opportunity to shine that she always dreamed of. She is chosen to go on a mission to explore the Other Earth.
The other scientist that is chosen to explore with her is none other than her best friend, and the man she has been in love with since she could breath, Brandon White. As they leave on this mission to explore the Other Earth, they realize that this planet is not quite what it seems, and is a much more dangerous place than they had previously thought.
Soon Randi is put in the middle of a war and has to choose, what is more important, the mission or her love for Brandon...
On average, how many beta readers would you say is normal? I have never really used beta readers. I do have an awesome family member that was once a proof reader that has agreed to look over my new book once it's finished in the next couple of weeks, but I am interested in using a few beta readers.
What is the exact purpose of a beta reader? Do they just tell you if they like it? Do they point out any glaring plot holes you may have?
Inquiring minds want to know!
I am currently working on a new book. It is something new for me, as I have never written another book anything like it. I tend to go more for fantasy and the paranormal, as far from reality as it can be the more more I love it.
This book is just a bit different. There are no faeries, vampires, unicorns, or goddesses. This book is more of the science fiction variety. It takes place in the future (about 90 years into the future to be exact) and has a new planet and space travels.
The countdown now begins on when this one will be released. I am actually very excited about this novel, because I still feel like I am getting to know my own voice as a writer and this one just feels right. This story is also the longest I have written to date. Take a look at my cover and tell me what you think... Synopsis should be released soon...
I have a WIP that I need your help with. I need you to help me pick out a title!
The story is about a woman named Zaria who suddenly starts to see ghosts after a reading with a psychic. She meet's Austin, a writer/bartender who is super cute, but she doesn't think she wants to be in any relationship. The problem is her ghost ex-boyfriend starts to push her to remember a pact they made fifteen years before that she would promise to move on. Now she has to deal with learning how to hear these ghosts that want her help and the fact that she may be falling for Austin.
This is an Adult Paranormal Romance
As a writer, I had never gotten a very bad case of Writer's Block. I would usually just push through it and come out of the other end pretty much unscathed.
Until I tried to start writing Celtic Destiny that is. I am not sure if it is because I have been working on this trilogy for over a year now and was having a bit of anxiety about making the series end just right, or if my mind just needed a break from the world I had created.
I have tried to work on this book for about 3 months now and still I only have a few thousand words on my first draft. This is new territory for me and I honestly don't know how to handle it. I get the itch to write, but I just cannot seem to make the words come out.
I made a decision two days ago, I put Celtic Destiny on the virtual backburner and pulled out a manuscript I had begun at the same time as Celtic Secrets but had pushed it to the side as Abby yelled at me to focus on her more.
In the past two days I have already managed to add 2,000+ words to the currently untitled manuscript so my question is, is it really Writer's Block if you are only blocked for one particular book?
Help me out and let me know if this is normal or not as I have never experienced anything of this nature with my writing before.
