Tallahassee Writers Panel on Publishing

Great time at the Writers Panel on Publishing in Tallahassee on Thursday. Decided to stay overnight at a hotel after the panel. Glad we did. We had a wonderful audience and lots of questions which took us into overtime.

Great Fun! Amy was our moderator and kept me and Laura on point with the questions. It is amazing a simple question like ‘do you need an agent’ takes a long answer when you are addressing traditional publishing, small press and self publishing. Then add in the various social media needs and promotion and marketing pops into the picture. Laura and I had to stay on our toes just to keep up.

Writer Panel Thursday, July 20

TWA Program for July 20, 2017 at Lake Ella Legion Hall – 6:30 p.m.

Publishing Panel – Writer Networking      

Come listen to the experience of authors who have published in different genres using multiple sources for publishing their works.  The constant change in publishing, computing, and media in general can be quite daunting: print, e-book, audible – Traditional press, Small press, Self-Publishing.  Which to choose?    
Lacey Dancer is one of the pen names for Sydney Clary a.k.a. Sara Chance, Sherry Carr and Sydney A. Clary. She is an award winning author; Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Best All Around Series Author, 2 Romantic Times Career Achievement Awards, and 2 Woman of the Year Awards just to name a few. Although she is best known for her womens contemporary fiction she has also published two historical fiction novels.

“The challenges of both traditional and self publishing are many and varied. Networking with others is, in my opinion, the best possible way to learn and grow in either.” – Sydney Clary

Tallahassee Marketplace

It’s that time again. Tallahassee Marketplace on Saturday. Always have a great time networking with other writers and meeting readers. In the neighborhood? Stop by and check out the books of TWA. They’re great!

Lazy Sunday

Overcast outside so it seems like a perfect time to curl and read. Indulged myself for an hour then connected with my friends on social media and email. Thanks Carol for sending this. I had to smile and then share with the group.

Busy week coming up. I will be presenting Care Giving tips at our local Woman’s Club and I am also working on tweaking my sites, adding color changes and possibly new banners. Then there is the new story I have started.

Alex and Lucy are clamoring for their time on the computer. Have about 15 pages so far. As always my characters just can’t head in the direction I think they will go.

Where to next?

A title I hope.

Family Tree in the Family Room

Genealogy has been a hobby for years. Decided to bring the relatives out of the albums and books and create a family tree in the family room. Since Shirley is a friend of mine and and an artist, I asked her to create the Tree of My Family.

Pictures will hang from the branches when it is finished. Right now it is a work in progress. Today is tree bark day. Thinking of adding birds and maybe an owl.

Happy Friday

I am doing my happy Friday dance. This has been a very busy week between writing projects and the farm. Spring has come early to this part of Florida, so mowing is starting early too.

Currently working on a presentation that I need to give on Tuesday and I am also working on a  signing at the Word of South in April in Tallahassee. No definite dates yet so I will post when finalized.

Banana Cabana

Living in North Florida is great, even in winter. We do get seasonal changes. This year, like the rest of the country, the temperatures have been all over the place. In the 70s last week and plunging to the 20s last night.

Since frost was predicted and my banana trees had half ripe bananas I didn’t want to lose I had to figure out a way to  protect them. I had tried frost blankets last year and I still ended up with burned plants and withered bananas. This year I had an idea. Shade umbrella as a roof and the frost blanket as the walls.

The Banana Cabana was born and it is working. Yeah!!!!

First Look at Diamond & Ice Cover

Diamond and Ice is finished. Had hoped to have it ready for Christmas but there were problems with the graphic designs. This couple was really a challenge to write as each was so different and that presented a problem for the cover. I always want my covers to reflect the characters in the book.

Jason and Diana were truly a hot and cold pair. Her flame, his glacier. When the two meet the sparks fly.

So here is a sneak peak. Book should be available on Amazon & Kindle later this month.

Lazy Day

Late start today. Between traveling to Tallahassee Monday and Gainesville yesterday, I decided a slow start this morning was in order. One of the best things about being a writer is setting my own time schedule. Driving so much the last two days did have a benefit. I think I have a title, finally, for the second book in the Live Oak Series. 
Hold the Dream. I prefer to have a title even if I change it in the end before I start the book. I’ll see if this one holds up or is just the jumping on name.
Found this quote that really appealed so I thought I would share. Hope everyone is having a really great day.
