Plotting in the Shared World

In January, Sapphire Blue Publishing released the first shared world anthology that I participated in. Seven Souls a Leaping focused on the story of siblings Duncan and Sam and their cousin Tara. The idea for a shared world anthology began batting around between Lisa Pietsch, K.F. Zuzulo and I. We knew a handful of items when we got started: We knew our main protagonists were related We knew they were all psychically gifted (or cursed) We knew they were based out of Boston We knew they’d share a villain, one growing progressively more evil We knew they’d meet a soul […]

NaNoWriMo: So You Want to Be a Writer

Shut up and write! Since my first book, The Path to Freedom, was published in September 2008, people have been approaching me about writing. I’ve both disappointed and inspired them. Some even at the same time. I’ll be the first to tell you that I didn’t know squat about writing when I wrote The Path to Freedom. What I did know was good entertainment. I wrote the book I wanted to read. I wrote the kind of story that would keep me glued to a movie screen if it were playing out. I wrote characters that had been forming in […]

Wrapping up our Spotlight On week with a little bit of a twist. Lisa Pietsch, author of the fabulous A Path to Freedom, serves as guest host as the spotlight shines behind the scenes on blog creator and author Heather Long.

I’m proud to call her a good friend of mine, although I’ve never laid eyes on her, and I’ll let you in on a little secret: I’ve been a huge fan of Heather’s since the moment we met. I started […]
