Inspiration for your day

I just wanted to let you all know that no I haven't fallen off the face of the planet. Not yet at least. :) Life has just gone crazy with the start of school coming up for my two little ones. (I keep thinking its going to get easier as they get older, Boy was I wrong.) Anyway, while I am manically trying not to let my head topple off, I figured I would leave you with this little inspiration.

Inspiration for your Day

This little tune floated into my ear almost unnoticed this morning, but something pulled my focus to it and I realized. It reminded me of a certain book I'm reading at the moment. Let me know what you guys think?

I hope everyone had a happy weekend. By the sound of it, most of you were really looking forward to it. :)

Hubby and I took the kids Peach picking at an orchard this weekend. (Can anyone say peach cobbler?) I'm telling you ...there is nothing like the smell of fresh, juicy peaches, rippening on the trees in the summertime. Its one of those things you really hope your kids remember when they grow up. :) (Oh and I made blueberry jelly too. )

Anyway, I just wanted to point out that I've added an "Advice for Authors" Page to the site with a couple things I've found on the web. I'm hoping to add to it frequently. So if any of you have links to helpful writing/publishing hints, ideas, or lists, please feel free to share them.

Inspiration for your day

Happy Friday Peoples!
I just wanted to share this one before the end of the work week, so there was a smile in place as you started your weekend.

This song is all about


All of which, I think we need to make the most of.

So I hope all of you have a great weekend and make sure you find something fun to do for yourselves. :D

Release Day

Okay so first I have to apologize. I was incapacitated by something that was comparable to the Bubonic Plague for the last two days, so I didn't get a chance to give a huge congratulations to our spotlight author - Samantha Sotto - on the publication of her debut novel BEFORE EVER AFTER which had its very special release day yesterday August 2, 2011.

Please help me congratulate her on her great accomplishment and by all means hit your local bookstore to pick up a copy!

Comedy vs Tragedy

So I thought I would pose this question today...which do you find harder to write, Comedy or Drama? Personally I think Comedy is so much harder. More specifically, I lack the confidence in my sense of humor translating well to a public audience. Or in layman's terms, how do I know that other people will think what I think is funny too?

With the adverse, I seem to be proficient in writing angsty dramatic goodness. That's what I like to write. (Although I love memorable, funny, and sarcastic characters but I don't seem to be good at writing them - not that I don't try).

I know there are other people who are out there that have fantastic senses of humor that never fail to put people into hysterics, but can't write a tear jerker scene worth a damn.

So I can't help but wonder which happens more ofter? Which do you think is easier to write? Which is harder? And I guess more importantly - have you ever tried to improve on the later and what helped turn it around for you?
