I write my books in a program called Scrivener, and one of the fun things is that it keeps statistics about how much you write each day. That means I can see from each of my books how long it took me to write them. Of course, that made me curious one day to see […]
Deleted Scenes: Yay or Nay?
Before there was Netflix (I know, I’m old, haha), I used to binge-watch a lot of TV series and would have to wait eagerly for the DVD boxes to come out. Two elements were always my favorite: the blooper reel and the deleted scenes. The first was laugh-out-loud funny, of course, but the second was […]
Why So Many Open Series at the Same Time?
But Nora, why are you starting a new series when you haven’t finished the No Regrets series yet? I’ve been asked this question and variations on it a number of times lately, and so I thought I’d explain a bit to you about how my release planning works. 1. Characters Need to Talk This is […]
Latest Travel News – No Weekly Deals
There will not be a weekly deals post this week. I am enjoying some time with family and friends. Just finished up the 20BooksTo50K event in Scotland. We will be back next week with the deals.
I just wanted to give a quick impression of ShiMMer 2019, the fabulous MM romance event I attended in Birmingham, UK last weekend. It was an absolute success for me, and I’ll definitely be back next time. Bringing swag is always a bit of a hassle and challenge when you’re flying in, so a big […]
Tips and Best Practices for Book Reviewing
Today, I want to talk about something a little different. It’s a little risky, this topic of leaving reviews for books, because authors talking about reviews is a gray area. So let me start off by saying that this was at the request of one of my readers, not of my own initiative. And second, […]
A Super Short Introduction Into Mpreg
Since my upcoming MMMM gay romance Alpha’s Sacrifice will be an mpreg romance, I figured I’d give a little introduction into this topic, since not everyone will be familiar with it.
The Story Behind The Time of My Life
I’ve been sharing how I developed the ideas for my books, because readers often ask: “Where do you get all the ideas for stories?” Today, I’ll be talking a little about The Time of My Life, my next gay romance that will be released soon. I actually wrote The Time of my Life before I […]
Where Do You Get All The Ideas For Stories? (No Shame Series)
I think this is the question fiction writers get asked most often: “Where do you get all the ideas for stories?” My answer is usually a very short, but unhelpful: “Everywhere.” It is true, though. I do get ideas from stories from everything and everywhere…
7 Unique Struggles Authors Face
I’m not the type to complain, but in this post, I thought I’d share some unique struggles authors face. Seriously, there needs to be a self-help book on this…or some kind of support system. The struggle is real, people, I’m telling you. 1. Deleting Words Part of being an author is self-editing and that means […]
My Plan For 2018
‘Tis the season for planning and making goals, and I am no exception. I’ve sworn off New Year’s resolutions years ago, but I do make a yearly plan for world domination every year. I gotta say that last year’s primary goal—I think I worded it as “finally publish a damn romance like you’ve been wanting […]
When a Dream Comes True…
I wanted to be a writer since I was fourteen years old. I still have them, the stories I typed on my mom’s typewriter, painstakingly fixing mistakes with that white stuff I can’t remember the name of. They’re adorable, filled with teen angst and hopelessly romantic events. I smile every time I read them, because […]
