On Gothic–Guest blog at A Woman’s Wisdom

Sing a Mournful Melody, Gothic, short story

Available at Amazon

Monday again, well, for today I have a little guest post of my own to tout.  You may remember, about a month ago, a lovely blogger named Bodicia reviewed my latest piece, SING A MOURNFUL MELODY. Today, she has a guest post by yours truly concerning the story. If you’d like to learn a little bit more about it, and why I decided to write a truly Gothic story, you can read the post here.

Enjoy–and thank you again, Bodicia! :) It’s been a pleasure, my friend!

A pretty winter photo and a test

I’ve been far too quiet here, lately. Sorry about that. I’m revising a new book and that’s taking most of my mind. With that plus Yule right around the bend I fear this poor little blog is getting neglected. I’m testing this blog, too. Trying to get it linked up to my Google+ account. I’m having some technical difficulties there so do bear with me. For now, though, I thought I’d share a little picture with y’all. I went up to North Carolina last month and got a little unexpected surprise when it snowed.

Yes, it was cold, no I hadn’t driven in it in years (and gotta admit, zinging around those mountains in it was a bit scary) but it was pretty. Winter is upon us, I guess… ;)

Twitter 101–or public service announcement for writers…and anyone else who needs it.

twitterOne of the things we’re always told, as writers, is that we must blog, blog, blog. The second most important thing once you’ve blogged (and this can be true for any other kind of blogger too) is that people must share your blogging. That’s not all that hard in this day and age. Most blogging systems provide gadgets that a reader can click to open your post up on Facebook, Twitter, and the like.

Not all of them, but some. (Sometimes you have to go to Add This and open an account to get code to place in your blog post to allow others to share your stuff.) But I digress from the point of this post. Those of you that have wordpress.com blogs can set up your blog posts to share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and whatever else when you publish your post. Nifty cool, right? Continue reading
