Goals by Margot Justes

Goals are set and meant to be accomplished, at least that is my understanding. I looked up the word in the dictionary. A goal is 'the result or achievement toward which effort is directed'



Simple enough, set the goal and achieve it-assuming the goal is realistic, it is all well and good, until life intervenes and set goals go out the window faster than hot air in winter.



Last week, I set goals to edit 50 pages of Blood Art, send out 3 query letters, and make a tiny dent in… Continue

Looking for reviewers for thriller 'Godchild' by Vincent Zandri

Vincent Zandri is touring in May with the Kindle edition of his thriller, Godchild.

 

He wanted justice, truth, revenge…whichever came first.

Prison-warden-turned-P.I. Jack “Keeper” Marconi understands the criminal mind. And he knows what it takes to break a man. His own life came apart the day a black Buick broadsided his car–and his wife died horrifically in the seat beside him.

Years later, on the eve of his second marriage, Marconi…

Submissions Still Open for "Fingerprints" Crime Flash Non-Fiction E-Zine

"Fingerprints" is looking for the kinds of stories you've told a million times to a million people. Those crazy, messed up stories that skirt the edges of the law.

The World of Wylie

This week, I'm sitting at my computer, ready to type in my weekly post, when suddenly this woman from Canada, named Jennifer Wylie, bursts into my apartment. Now, normally, I wouldn't mind, but with barely a "How Ya doin'?" she hip checks me away from my computer, and takes my chair. Before I can recover, she's hijacked my blog. She spends a few minutes typing away like mad, then she's out the door in a flash. The bad news is, she left the Canadian cold weather in her wake and we had been… Continue

Today's Writers: Tricks of the trade - A beautifully turned phrase vs. page turner



Today’s Writers: Tricks of the trade column discusses the merits of spending hours, days and even months to craft that perfect phrase or sentence, while the novel languishes on the back burner. Lots of good advice in this one.…

I.J.Parker's "Success Story" posted on Jenny Milchman's blog:

 

The link below will take you there.  I haven't figured out how to transfer text to this blog.  There is already a bit of conversation there, or you can comment here.

 

The "success story" bit is tongue-in-cheek, though Jenny may have faith in us.  Presumably we talk about the moment when we knew that we had made it. How many authors are likely to believe they've made it these days?  I've had a few of those foolish and naive moments when I thought that maybe good things…

Ridiculous publicity ideas for authors

In less than two months, my next novel MOZART’S LAST ARIA will be published in the UK (the US publication date is November). This means I have to start thinking about publicity.

Naturally I’ll be doing the usual kinds of things that writers do these days. The promo video is already made and can be seen on…
