It's Murder, My Son - Lauren Carr, Author

It’s Murder, My Son – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat

A noise outside made her jump out of the recliner. She glanced at the

clock. Almost nine. Could Chad have decided to come out when I

mentioned my appointment with the divorce lawyer? Maybe he does love my

money more than he loves Rachel. She listened. Nothing except the

wind signaling the blizzard’s approach. Maybe I should call… Continue

Guest Post Sandra Tooley Transitioning In The World Of Publishing

Back in the late 1980s when I was in writer infancy, I massaged a plot for a mystery novel. I did the submission two-step, sending out query letters and sample chapters only

to discover literary agents weren’t sure what to make of what I was

writing. I combined genres which was a

no-no back then. “Write mystery or

science fiction, but don’t combine the two.”

I had read once to write what you like to read. I liked to read…

Short Story Contest Winner

The winners up to sixth place are now out and online for the Arkansas Writers’ Conference contests at Little Rock, Arkansas.

I placed second in contest 25. Look What The Cat Dragged In. Title of my short story was The Unexpected Visitor. Guidelines for this entry - a short story and no word limit which is great for me. I know 2500 words is about the top limit for an entry, but I like it when I don’t have to watch the count close.

I’ve been entering this set of…

Effective Excerpts

I've posted an excerpt from Katharine Ashe's SWEPT AWAY BY A KISS at today and I'm asking how you feel about excerpts on websites. How long? From what part of the novel should they come? Do you even read excerpts?

Guest Post Manoj Rao

Hi! Iʼm Manoj Rao, creator of WMDs the comic, available on the Apple App Store for the iPhone, iPod Touch& iPad. When I approached Giovanni about reviewing our first two issues, WMDs #1.0 & #1.5, I’d also pitched

Oh, the humanity! Oh, it's not fair!

I'm doing paid work today, ie, NOT writing. Caught a little bit of breakfast television today, an interview with Justin Beiber. I am aware he has either written, or is in the process of writing his autobiography. What I find galling, and I daresay other authors will find galling, is that fact that his book (and how big can his autobiography be? He's 16 years old, for the love of Christ behind the wheel of a souped-up Mustang). What's the book going to say: 'I was born. I went to school/was…

Dean M. DeLuke Shedrow

I didn’t know if this was going to be something I could enjoy, a mystery surrounding race horses. I know absolutely nothing about horse racing or horses in general other than the fact that they have four legs,

consume food, and it comes out the other end in large steaming piles. Fortunately

for me this novel was not a big steaming pile.

I was as shocked as anyone that I got a groove on this. I would say the reason was that Dean…
