The Curse of the Naked Man Chest

Recently, I was email chatting with someone who is far more successful an author than I currently am. We got to talking about my covers and the comment I received was: “While they’re far from bad I do think it’s an area you might need to make improvements in. Take a look at the covers… Continue reading The Curse of the Naked Man Chest

Spicing Things Up

I like a challenge. Particularly one that will help me hone my skills as an author, and force me to try things I might not otherwise consider. For me, the biggest challenge I face in my writing is length. (Heh, heh.) Keeping a novel under 150,000 words is a constant mix of tiptoeing, editing and… Continue reading Spicing Things Up
