Easier the Second Time Around?

I’m visiting Literary Lagniappe where I’m revealing some of the background to one of my stories. Will it be Dragon Destiny or Imprisoned in Stone? Stop by to find out.

Oh yeah — there will be a special giveaway to some lucky person who leaves a comment.

Hope to see you there. The direct link is http://wp.me/p2Mj5j-su.

MFRW Monthly Quote 2014


One of the greatest joys of a hobby or profession is the people you meet. Sometimes they are individuals, other times it is a group. Some are supportive, others share their knowledge. Marketing for Romance Writers is one group that does both. Below is a repost of the monthly quote that from the Marketing for Romance Writers Blog.


The role of art (poetry, novels, music, films) is, in part, to question the limits we place on ourselves; the role of art is to offer a glimpse of a different reality. It stands there beckoning to us—there is greater potential in you and in life than you can see, than you are trying to see.”Rod MacIver
