Historical Fiction Spotlight: A Different Kind of Fire by Suanne Schafer

New on Amazon UK and Amazon US Ruby Schmidt has the talent, the drive, even the guts to enroll in art school, leaving behind her childhood home and the beau she always expected to marry. Her life at the Academy seems heavenly at first, but she soon learns that societal norms in the East are as restrictive as those back home in West Texas. Rebelling against the insipid imagery woman are expected to produce, Ruby embraces bohemian life.

For Aspiring Authors: Never Give Up--My Lesson in Persistence

A Lesson In Persistence My story will inspire you to push on, if nothing else will. I'm probably the longest aspiring author to finally get published. My journey took 18 years. I wrote my first novel in 1982. Although my third or fourth novels came close to getting published with Harlequin, they didn't quite make it. My first published novel was actually the ninth one I'd written. Although I now have a great agent with whom I signed with her two years ago, I had 2 agents before becoming published: one retired; the other gave up. So I made my sales on my own. I'd like to tell any aspiring authors who are frustrated because it's taking them 3, 4, 5 or more years to get that first contract, rem...

New Tudor Book: The Forgotten Tudor Women: Anne Seymour, Jane Dudley & Elisabeth Parr, by Sylvia Barbara Soberton

New on Amazon UK and Amazon US Anne Seymour, Jane Dudley and Elisabeth Parr all have their own unique stories to tell. Born into the most turbulent period of England’s history, these women’s lives interplayed with the great dramas of the Tudor age, and their stories deserve to be told independently of their husbands.  Anne Seymour served all of Henry VIII’s six wives and brushed with treason more than once, but she died in her bed as a wealthy old matriarch. Jane Dudley was a wife and mother who fought for her family until her last breath.  Elisabeth Parr, sister-in-law of Queen Katherine Parr, married for love and became Elizabeth I’s favourite lady-in-waiting. The Tudor age was a hazardous...

Weekend Reads: “Dark Visions”

Dark Visions: an anthology of 34 horror stories from 27 authors
As you all know, this is the anthology that features my award-winning tale, “Ghosts of Tupelo.” I finished reading Dark Visions in its entirety a little bit ago and wanted to share my thoughts. Dark Visions: an anthology of 34 horror stories from 27 authors by Dan Alatorre My rating: 5 of 5 stars Disclosure up front: my award-winning story, “Ghosts of Tupelo,” is in this book. My review applies to the other tales contained therein. It’s been my experience that anthologies are uneven. Some of the stories will blow you away in a good way, some will leave you cold, and others will be “just okay.” Well, Dan Alatorre has curated a collection of tales that will keep you reading “just one more” for...

Nailed it!

I am happy to announce that I suddenly nailed a perfect idea for the mainstream/realistic/whatever novel I’ve been asked to write for a major editor, and that will be the subject of my NaNoSortaWriMo. The idea is solid and fun, and while certainly appealing to a mainstream audience, it will still be my sort of story. Just a little less action and a little more structure. But it opens with a scene involving a mechanical velociraptor. Because you know me. Anyway, I’m quite happy with the first 1000-odd words, and I am going reasonably strong. This is going to be quite an adventure. Original link

Raiders Of The Lost Ark: An Indiana Jones Theory

Worth a read! Misanthropester The other day I was scrolling through Hulu attempting to find something to have on in the background or maybe something to actually watch. I wasn’t having much success, and then I stumbled upon a film series I’ve long adored. I will always watch Indiana Jones movies. Hell, I’ll even watch (and enjoy) the Allan Quatermain knock-offs from the mid-80s. While The Last Crusade is my favorite, watching Raiders of the Lost Ark is always a delight. However, as I re-watched this film for the millionth time I came to a realization. Half of the movie is just Indiana Jones trying to pick up the pieces after making a huge miscalculation. Raiders of the Lost Ark is arguably a...
