writing romance

I often thought it would be easy to write the perfect romance. And why not? I’m a woman, the majority of romance novel readers are women, of course I can do it! I mean, I know what women want to read, right? WRONG! I’ve been walking around with the idea of becoming a published author, for many years now. It all started when I was still in high school, and very obsessed with the boy-band B2K. MSN was very popular at the time, so there were many groups dedicated to […]

Self-Publishing JourneyWriting

The writers among us know how difficult it can be to stick to a writing schedule. I, too, am guilty of this. The only writing schedule I successfully stick to, is my Chinese Journal schedule.

I made my choice and decided to go with Deranged Doctor Design. I am very happy with the end result. I have […]

I’ve been working on my debut novel since forever, and now it’s really time to wrap it up. The past couple of days, I have been reading an ARC by author Willow A. Renner. My feedback on her project is a week overdue, but I will mail it tonight. I just hope she forgives me for mailing it this late. I’ve been rather busy the past couple of weeks. Now that I’ve give myself until the last week of May to finish my novel, I started to think about the […]
