World Building: Friendship

By Cindy Tomamichel

A social structure is part of many species’ daily interactions, and certainly a big part of what it is to be human, so it probably goes for aliens as well. To boldly seek out – new friends? What role does friendship play in novels?

If the pandemic and associated lockdowns have taught us anything, it is the value of . . .

Using Core Wounds in Your Stories

By Jeanine Englert

In February I did a talk at my local writing chapter. My focus was on how to improve the first line, page, and chapter of your book. In it I discussed one of my favorite ways of doing just that by exposing layers of your characters a bit at a time by showing snippets of their core wounds.

So, what are core wounds? . . .

How to Write a Novel: A 12-Step Guide

By Jerry Jenkins

You’ve always wanted to write a novel. But something’s stopped you.

Maybe you’ve tried before, only to get a few, or several, pages in and lose steam because:

    Your story idea didn’t hold up
    You couldn’t overcome procrastination
    You feared your writing wasn’t good enough
    You ran out of ideas and had no clue what to do next

You may be surprised that even after writing 200 books (two-thirds of those novels) over the last 45+ years, including several New York Times bestsellers (most notably the Left Behind Series), I face those same problems every time.

So how do I overcome them and succeed? . . .

Book Marketing Strategies to Improve Your Website Performance

By Penny Sansevieri

I talk a lot about book covers and other book marketing strategies on this blog, but one thing we don’t spend enough time on are author websites. And they are crucially important to an author’s success, but to be clear, I don’t mean that you have to have a website that’s big and elaborate. In fact, sometimes the simplest websites are the best! The type of website you have, and therefore the book marketing strategies you use, really depends on your goals.

Websites, like book covers, rely solely on . . .

What Makes a Great Villain?

By Dani Pettrey

I’m happy to say I officially signed off on The Deadly Shallows a few weeks ago. It’s finished with editorial and on to paging. Phew. That book was literally the hardest I’ve ever written. I couldn’t tell you why. Well…five surgeries between the end of May and the end of August didn’t help, but well before that, this book was wrestling inside of me. It ended up causing me to have two years between releases. I felt like I’d let my readers down, but just seeing the excitement for The Deadly Shallows has filled me with such encouragement and love. I have the BEST readers.

The funny thing with The Deadly Shallows was that I knew the hero and heroine well but still struggled to find their story. It turned out it was the villain along with his motivations and actions that finally propelled the story forward.

Recently I took a fabulous online class . . .

Not Writing? No Worries!

By Carole Ann Moleti

Writers have long been told they need to “write every day”or to do their “morning pages.” I may have been able to write most days, with the exception of the last two years for obvious reasons. Just like everything else in our lives, the pandemic has changed how we think and act in both our personal and professional lives. As such, it helps to reframe that mantra to . . .

Writing Tools: No Trespassing

By Susan Hanniford Crowley

Writing means recording moments. Even if you are writing fiction, the more you use non-fiction places, moments, feelings, and senses, the stronger the experience for the reader.

Create a writing tool for yourself. Use the photo above as a writing prompt. There are two parts. Write the . . .

The Top 7 Reasons I Stop Reading a Novel

By Jody Hedlund

I’ve noticed over the past couple of years that I’ve developed an especially bad habit–I’m having a harder and harder time finishing novels that I pick up.

I wasn’t always so hard to please! There once was a time when I finished almost every book I started.

But these days, my shelves . . .
