The Lure of Easy Money in Publishing Von: L. Avery Brown

Hello, Serious Writers.

I know I've not been around a lot but I do pop in from time to time to see what's going on. Also, I like to clean up the main thread line where people post promotions and advertisements. Typically, I do this by informing the person who issued the post <why> the post has been deleted while letting them know that they are more than welcomed to repost in the proper thread.

And that, as they say, is that.... mehr anzeigen

I read it. It looks very futural. And yet...who knows. It might be the future. Or simply a way to post and get hacked. As you said...need to wait to see where this leads to.
Personally. ..I feel that it's another way to be controlled by 'Big Brother'. First of all, using bitcoin... mehr anzeigen


The future is wonderful...and scary.

L. Avery Brown

No, you are correct in both assumptions. But not the paranoid part.

First, Bitcoin IS a way to get around not only the US government's way to collect taxes but also a way to get around the taxes imposed on digital purchases within certain US states and municipalities. As well as... mehr anzeigen

RE: Rules, Rules, Rules. 9 Writing "Rules" Examined. - Terrific because it reminds us that some rules are a wee bit flexible!

UP Von: J.C. Laird

A reminder that one word in the English language that can be a noun, verb, adjective, adverb and preposition.: UP

This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is 'UP.' It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv.], [prep.], [adj.], [n] or [v].

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?

No problem and can I suggest you to turn off the download for free option for your books that only if you allow your books to be downloaded. I believe that that's how the one who is building the site managed to have our stories

Last weekend we took a little trip to the east coast of Florida (from the west side). On the way we stopped in Orlando for brunch, meeting fellow writer and BookRix member Judy Colella at a local restaurant.

We had set up the meet earlier, thinking how fun it would be to meet in person versus conversing only online. We were right!

Aww. Damn! Now I want to go do that. I used to live in Orlando area. Next trip to Fla....


John and his sweetie were the best part of my whole week - great conversation, lots of interesting things discussed, yummy food... an altogether lovely time. Finally meeting someone you've admired and shared ideas with for years is without question one of life's highlights!


Ahhhh, wish I could have been there!

What's so wrong with Purple Prose and what color should our prose be? Von: Calliope
14 Kommentare    Öffnen  
Wichtiger Beitrag

I've been told I have a 'purple prose' problem in my writing (well, that wasn't technically what she said but I thought it sounded better than, "you like the sound of your own voice too damn much). So how do we as authors know when our descriptions are too much? How much information is too much information? Is this something we can figure out for ourselves or is this only apparent when your editor marks most of your manuscript with red ink?

Snarky. Nice. You're getting better at this. ;)

Yeah, a romance with action and violence. Why would I like that?
oh wait.... that's what my book is. ;) Ok, its got vampires, but...
Whatever. When you're done, I'll bug you about it then. I'll pretend I'm not interested in the meantime.


I may never be finished with it. It may be my Winchester Mansion. You just keep pretending you aren't curious, tho. XD


Aaaaand... I'm more curious now. ;)
But I get it. My Saints trilogy is going to take forever, too.
I'm just psyched that you're working on any book. (tacky finger guns)
