WHY IS NETWORKING IMPORTANT?
You can be the greatest writer in the world, but if no one knows about you, you probably won't sell many books. Networking is one of the best tools an author has, and this blog explores things you can do to spread your name and your work around.

MAKING MURDER FUNNY or...HOW THE
SILVER SISTERS MYSTERIES WERE BORN
One of the things I love is writing funny mysteries. Yes, the murders are there, but not gory, messy affairs. And, when twins Goldie and Godiva are on the job along with their feisty 80 year-old mother and uncle (former vaudeville magicians) there will be laughs as you navigate the twists and turns to
the surprise ending.

BUMPING OFF FAT VINNY
REVENGE IS SWEET
This site is "Will Kill For a Story," Sometimes authors have problems with their publisher or agent, but whatan are the authors to do when the publisher is holding their manuscript hostage? For these authors, their thoughts turned to murder!

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN
YOUR PUBLISHER GOES OUT OF BUSINESS?
Unfortunately I've had some experience with that and my post discusses what I did when the publisher of 5 of my books closed their doors. Sometimes what seems negative turns out positive, and that's what happened in my case.

BUILDING A BRAND
WRITERS TRICKS OF THE TRADE
It all began with columns in the L.A. and Las Vegas editions of examiner.com. Several of those columns became a blog, a book, then a Facebook fan page, an eZine and Blog Talk Radio show. So far the blog has had over 41,000 hits and they keep coming.

WRITING WITH A LONG-DISTANCE PARTNER
Having co-authored books with three different partners now, I am often asked how we write together. Does each author take a chapter or character? Do we write all of the chapters together? How do you manage to stay on track when you live in different cities? I will answer all of those questions and more on this blog.
