Breathless Book Reveal: Very Late...

My uncle passed away right before this cover reveal for my friend, Krista McLaughlin. I apologize so much! I'm catching up on the reveals and the book reviews I promised at the end of last month. Enjoy, and hopefully you all get a late boost in sales with these posting. BREATHLESS Cover Reveal Information BREATHLESS by Krista McLaughlin Book Summary: Eighteen-year-old Lainey is the only witness to her best friend losing her life to the depths of the ocean. She stays close to the water, a small part of her hoping to surrender to the same fate. On her birthday the waters almost overtake her, but a mysterious young man rescues her and disappears. Lainey can't stop thinking about the stranger from the beach, and one night she finds her rescuer naked and bleeding on the shore.

Writing Characters With Great Backstories (Without the Backstory) By Kisa Whipkey As an editor, I get to bear witness to all kinds of writing pitfalls. (In fact, I have a post series dedicated to that planned for the near future.) But one of the most prevalent, by far, revolves around divulging exposition -- especially of the backstory variety. There are varying degrees of offense, but my personal favorite (and by "favorite", I really mean eye-roll inducing, hair-pulling, editing nightmare) is when writers feel the need to divulge a character's entire, complicated life story in the first chapter. Why is that bad? Well, think of it like this: your first chapter is the reader's introduction to your character. So in real life, it would be like meeting someone for the first time and having them word vomit their life story all over you. What kind of impression does that leave? Yeah, I bet you'd avoid that person like the plague after that. I can already hear the

IWSG March Post

Good Morning! How is everyone this morning? I hope the cold weather is about over and warm spring breezes find their way to our house soon! I'll be honest. This past month, I haven't been able to think about writing, much less work on it. I've had a lot of family emergencies, hospital stays, emergency room visits, and other sickness. Last week, my uncle passed away. He was such a dear, sweet uncle. He was funny and silly. When you took a picture of him, he always had a photo he wanted to hold up with him. Once, we took a photo of him and my mom and a couple of years later, I took a photo of him, with him holding that photo of him and my mom. So silly! We put those photos on his CD for family. Take the time to spend with your family. MAKE the time. Don't wait until a tragedy happens to visit and tell them how much you love them and appreciate them. Don't let death hold you in regret of what you wished you had said or done with those you love.  No more regret

Thank you

Thank you for all your prayers, thoughts, and condolences during my time of loss. The funeral was very hard. I was so thankful for my family and support of my friends. During the viewing and wake at the church, my mommy had to go to the emergency room. I've never been more scared for her life. We all thought she had a heart attack, but the EKG showed nothing wrong. She is home now and feeling much better. The one bright side of the funeral was seeing family and cousins I haven't seen since I was a child. Why do we always wait until a tragedy to get together with family? We've planned a family reunion for this summer and I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone again. The one thing I learned this past weekend? Enjoy every minute of life and NEVER take your family and friends for granted. Tell them every day how much you love them because you never know when the last opportunity will pass. Have a great week with your family, beautiful guys and dolls. See you
