WIP it Wednesday Each (or every other) Wednesday I'll share a snippet from my current WIP. Unedited, of course :), so don't shoot me!
Just Published Monthly, I'll drill down with newly published authors about how they did it, what worked, what didn't, and get them to share their pearls of wisdom.
How I Write New! Each month I'll do a post about writing-sometimes craft, sometimes promotion, hopefully useful!
Ask a Writer New! Randomly, I'll do a post and invite you guys to ask me anything. Well, not anything, but anything to do with writing and being an author. Not sure how this will work because there are a lot of lurkers (yeah, you!), but I'd love to see your questions!
Perfume I'm loving right now...

I figured when it rolled around to 2 pm Eastern time today with no email or phone call that I did not final in the SF Heart to Heart contest (not that I was checking every 10 minutes or anything). I received an email later in the afternoon with a summary of the finalists and my name wasn't on the list. Imagine that? I don't accept failure easily (and that's how I initially viewed this). I'm an over achiever. Always have been. Truthfully (and probably arrogantly), I thought writing would be no different. It's not that things have been easy. I've worked my ass off for everything I've accomplished, but when I set my mind on something I succeed. Writing is so different to anything else I have attempted. In many ways it's totally subjective and the time frames between key milestones can be vast and can result in having to go back to square one. Am I disappointed? YEP. Am I down? SOME. Am I discouraged? NO (OK, maybe just a little). I'm going to eagerly look forward to receiving the written feedback and look at it with an open mind. That was the primary reason I entered anyway; not to win. But, hey I'm also competitive! Tomorrow is another day with another contest announcement (gulp!). The good news? I'm not nervous about the result any longer. It is what it is.
I write about unconventional (contemporary) heroes; knights in not so shiny armor and heroines who wouldn't choose to ask for help in a million years (maybe they don't even know they need help). Yeah…I write romance. Leaning more to the hot & scorching. Contemporary for now but I see myself heading towards paranormal as well at some point. I never would have thought I would end up doing this, but now that I am, it just feels…right.
