Month in Review - April 2019

Now that the weather has finally warmed up, I find myself spending more time outdoors. So, I wanted to recap last month before time runs away again. So now, without further ado, here's the list of the most popular blog posts for April 2019, chosen by you, the readers:

1. Sneak Peek of  THE PERPETUAL TRAVELER - A Country Girl Empress

As most of my readers know by now, I've been diligently working on my next historical fiction piece, THE PERPETUAL TRAVELER for some time, and the third book of my Country Girl Empress series is nearly ready to hit a bookshelf near you. I can also well imagine that many of you wouldn't mind a sneak peek. Well, you won't have to wait any longer...

2. Writing a Novel: How to Add Depth to Your Story

A while back, I met an aspiring writer, named Peggy, at a local pet supplies store (I spend a lot of time there....what can I say, I love to shop for my furry children!) who asked me several questions regarding my writing but this one stood out...

With the recent influx in dog food recalls, I've received several requests from readers and fellow dog lovers to share another of my homemade dog food recipes. I decided to share my recipe for my puppy-approved Turkey Meat Loaf. I cook it frequently for my current furry friends as often as I've made it for my late epi-warriors, Lana and Darren...

4. How Readers' Suggestions Can Influence Authors

Like most writers, I get my fair share of emails and social media messages from readers. Most of these messages are encouraging. I love to hear how my stories touch readers' lives. These words are such a blessing, and I am confident my fellow authors would agree. Once in a while, I get emails about mistakes in my writing. Thankfully I work with a good editor, so I don't get too many of those messages. I’ve even added a few of those really sharp-minded people to my list of beta readers. After my manuscript has gone through several of rounds of editing, I pass it along to my beta readers who use their gift to spot any typos or glaring plot holes...

5. Book Publishing: How to Review Your Proof Copy in Three Steps

When publishing a book, the moment of truth is simply inevitable. After all, it is the moment that you have anxiously awaited and probably even dreamed about. The printed proof copy of your book has finally arrived on your doorstep! That just happened to me…my newest historical fiction novel THE PERPETUAL TRAVELER showed up on my door step just a couple of days ago. I'm just giddy with excitement...
