Powerful Influences in Writing

By Lorraine Ambers

We explore the world around us through things we hear, see and experience. So I guess it’s natural to expect the current crisis to slip into our writing. Should we sensor our words to protect other peoples feelings? Should we avoid subjects, because they might be deemed inappropriate?

As writers we’re told to research, to write . . .

Writing character flaws

By Lorraine Ambers

The reason why character flaws, or big problems, are so important, is because this is what our character is going to overcome. To master, to change, to learn to strengthen or resolve. This flaw will be planted right from the beginning, showing the character in their normal setting, struggling with something that . . .

Marisa on Marketing

By Marisa Dillon

As a professional marketer, I’ve learned some of the best ways to craft and place great ads, and how to design them to be “sticky.” Not gum on your shoe, “eew” sticky, but how to curate strong creative content that stands out, resonates with consumers, and ultimately, motivates them to interact with a product.
Lo and behold, though, when I turned my professional eye to . . .

For the Love of…Writing Resources, Part 1

By S.H. Crowley

I am a serious book nerd. There, I said it. Whew, it’s good to have that out in the ether.
I have hundreds of fiction paperbacks in all kinds of genres. I probably have a hundred reference books about writing, encyclopedias about the spiritual world, mythology, and on and on. There’s a room in my basement filled to the brim, cabinets are nearly overflowing, plus every built-in in the house has books that belonged to my paternal grandmother. Even her complete set of Jane Austen books, such a treasure.
If you’re a writer, you have your special list of resources; books, articles, notes taken at a conference, an online class. We all do. What surprised me recently was some of my top go-to resources were unknown to two of my writer friends.
What? What? . . .

Don’t Get Mad, Get Editing (Look at every critiques in a positive way.)

By Dorlana Vann

I have observed some really upset writers after they’ve received written or verbal suggestions about their stories. And I think most writers at least wince (I know I do) when they receive tons of edits on one copy. But you can actually learn to see these as gifts, huge favors, and even unexpected muses instead of personal attacks on you and/or your writing. I’ve used a few famous quotes to . . .

Writer’s Need Validation to Grow

By Lorraine Ambers

We all crave validation. We all desire acknowledgement and acceptance. It is one of our fundamental needs as a human. Despite this yearning, I’ve battled with this concept. In a modern society, we’re led to believe that we’re failing unless we push aside these impulses and set to the hard work of getting to know ourselves, of loving ourselves and not needing validation from outside sources.

I’m crying ‘bullshit’ to the notion, we . . .

The 5 Essential ‘Abilities’ of the Romantic Hero

By Ella Hayes

Oh my goodness I have such a blog post for you!

Mills and Boon Author Ella Hayes is here to talk about the essential abilities of the romantic hero. I always fall madly in love with Ella Hayes’s male characters and to me she’s the queen of creating sexy male heroes. Her latest character Zach Merrill, from Italian Summer with the Single Dad, made me throw out my new year’s resolution about not getting carried away with fancying fictional hunks and don’t get me started on her character, Cormac from Her Brooding Scottish Heir.

I am a hot mess before this post has even started so let’s quickly hand over to Ella Hayes.

Hello, here are my essential hero attributes: . . .
