CategoryWhat We Learned In Our Quest To Publish

The Last Post

  Hello, all! Almost two years ago, we opened a blog on Blogpost and started with “The First Post.” Since then, our posts have been few and far between. So at this time, we’ve decided to stop blogging. We don’t do it enough, and we really aren’t that good at it. We just can’t seem to find enough topics to talk about, and between our jobs and trying to...

What we learned in our quest to publish – Part VI

We’re very excited with our decision to self-publish, but because we didn’t know we had other options when we started this process, we thought we had to try and find any agent and go the traditional publishing route. Because of this, some could say that we’ve wasted time and lost money by not publishing our first book sooner. By the time we’ve completed everything and...

We hired an editor! Not a Small Decision.

  We have officially have an editor! We hired Jovana Shirley at Unforseen Editing to edit Forbidden Blood! (And hopefully all subsequent novels.)  She was our first choice and, even though we have to wait until the end of April to get started, we are very, very excited . . . and relieved. It’s not as easy to find a freelance editor as one would think. Anyone can claim they’re an...

Are vampire romance novels dead?

Recently, I have come across a few articles, Facebook/Twitter posts, and blog posts about the death of vampires in fiction. This makes me incredibly sad, not just as a writer who’s main character is a vampire, but as a reader as well. First of all, I love vampires. I love when vampires are on the side of good instead of evil. And I especially love when they are alive, which is harder to...

I’ve been taking my daughter to gymnastics since September, and this week was the first time I have noticed this sign. While it might be new, I would bet that it isn’t, and I find it to be quite the coincidence that it caught my eye this week. Because, after taking some time off from querying to reevaluate and make changes, we decided it’s time to start again. I think this is...
