Excess Weight Is Body Clutter

I’m very lucky to attend a weekly weight-loss support group where we talk about nutrition, road blocks to health, and one per month we have our own personal trainer come in and work with us. I feel that luck so deeply that I give back to the group by writing up the weekly notes. I’m a writer, it’s the best thing I can do for the group. Continue reading “Excess Weight Is Body Clutter”

All the meetings of my local chapter of Romance Writers of America have been super valuable. I hope I can encourage you to find a chapter and join. Even an on-line chapter is valuable to a writer. We were fortunate enough to have Callie Hutton, USA Today best-selling author of Regency Romances, Western Historical Romances, and the occasional Contemporary Romance, come talk to us. She is delightful. Continue reading “Making History Relevant”

Find the People Who Want to Love Your Writing

I still have so many pages of notes to share with you from the Romance Writers of America 2016 National Conventions. And I haven’t been sued yet, so that’s a good sign. One of my favorite workshops was titled Finding and Keeping Your Audience, with a handout available online. Because who wants to carry around a hundred sheets of paper?

Charity Means Love, Love Invokes Romance

Over the past year, the number of Romance authors involved in charities makes me proud to be part of that group. My own Romance Writers of America chapter holds an annual event to fight illiteracy. A group of writers, including Romance writer Julia Quinn, wrote onstage in front of an audience to produce Hotel Angeline, with the proceeds of the event going to charity. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004VSV7FY/?tag=juliaquinnhomepa Alyssa Cole supports clean water for everyone through the United Nations Global Goals. http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/ Continue reading “Charity Means Love, Love Invokes Romance”
