Rereading the Written

I'm not going to lie to you. After I write a book and it's been sent off for the  final edits and approval, I kinda. . .well I do forget about it until it comes out. That can be two years from then.

I know my characters and the  basic plot, but I forget about the little details. The little details like the ghost cat at the end of A Ghostly Mortality. When I get a ton of emails about how excited they are about the cat, I have to admit that I wonder what cat?

Ah, oh! I better re-read what I wrote and what was published. . .

So I'm rereading A Ghostly Mortality because it's time to start writing that seventh book if I'm going to get it turned in on time!

  1. I am reading two, one on kindle which I read in bed and one is an actual book. The book is Edited Out by E.J. Copperman, I won it to do a review on, I will be starting that today and on the kindle I am reading Kathi Daley's new one Treasure in Paradise. Next up will be Joanne Fluke's so I can catch up before the book club, LOL.

  2. I read and reread books all the time and keep a journal of books I read and a small synopsis so I can remember what the story was. I do this because I might see a book and think have I read that and I can go look.

  3. I'm reading 2 books right now. I have an advanced copy of Daryl Wood Gerber's Day of Secrets and listening to Serafina and the Black Cloak on audio book when working around the house.

    I love ya audio books, they make mindless chores fly by.

  4. I'm listening to The Girl You Lost by Kathryn Croft, (not suitable for everyone trust me). I'm reading Halloween Hijinks by Kathi Daley which I should finish sometime tonight. Then we will start A Ghostly Reunion. Zoey found out there about this one and was upset we didn't start it yet. Haha. Frances Hampton G.

Easter and the Derby?

Okay..
Easter is in April and the Derby is in May! But here in Kentucky and the south, we don't have Easter without the Derby pie!



Kentucky Derby Pie
(from my mama~Linda Lowry)
My mama’s Derby Pie is smack your mama good! It’s a southern pie with walnuts and chocolate chips. You can use pecans in substitute for the walnuts, but I really like my walnuts!



Ingredients: ½ cup melted butter
1 cup sugar ½ cup flour 2 beaten eggs 1 tsp. vanilla extract ¾ cup Walnuts or pecans (your choice not both!) ¾ cup chocolate chips (or more if you really want it gooey!)
Directions Mix in the order that’s written under the ingredients. This is very important. Pour the mixture into an unbaked 9 inch pie shell. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.



Enjoy this amazing video of an artist decorating eggs. 



Happy happy Easter!!

And they're off....

WOW! I had a super busy weekend. It was filled with fun and fear!  On Saturday our son Austin was in charge of his fraternity alumni/parent weekend at Keeneland Racetrack.


Now...y'all know I love horse racing and Keeneland. I grew up going to the races and Keeneland is literally fifteen minutes from my childhood home. Friends of my family started Keeneland and still own it today. So...I'm pretty at home there. 
It was opening weekend, which meant there were probably around 40k people there. 40,000 PEOPLE!!! 

(These little jockeys are so cute. They have the names of winners on their little boards.) 
The food line is 1 1/2 hours long to stand in...not to mention the bathroom. You don't think that sounds like fun?? It is! We get there and tailgate on "The Hill." It's the cute name for the grassy area on Keeneland where you can tailgate all day long and never see a horse. But it's the thrill and inside that I love. 
There are two races an hour so there's …

How To Get Reviews For Your Novel

I don't care what anyone says....reviews are important.



I hear a lot of authors that say they don't rely on reviews to read their books and they are full of it. That is why we have reviews and review sites like Goodreads, right?

I'm not saying that you have to read the reviews your novel gets, but reviews are important. They will help you market your novel, especially if you are self published.

Nowadays, more and more review sites are accepting self published authors to review. So you better be sure that your book is the best it can possibly be or you won't get the reviews you want.

Regardless, you need reviews.

Here are a few ways I get reviews for my novels:

1) Goodreads giveaways.

Taking advantage of the giveaway on Goodreads is a great way to get reviews. I offer three copies of my book when it's released using this Goodreads feature. I hold the giveaway for a month and get thousands of requests.

Once Goodreads announces the three winners, I send them a book co…
