  • Sunday Snippet: The I Got Nothin’ Edition

    Truly, I’ve got nothin’. I’ve had an odd week, a busy week. I wrote. I worked on editing gigs. I got my first vaccination–yay! I sent the final copy edits back for The Valentine Wager back to Tule and it looks like the title may stick, which delights me. I’ve been pretty good about doing my daily Simple Abundance reading and journaling, although I wish so much that I could sketch. Do you ever wish for a talent or skill that you absolutely do not have? That’s the one I want. I see these lovely pencil sketches and colored pencil drawings and I want like anything to be able to…

  • Welcome Author C.R. Grissom

    I’m so pleased to introduce y’all to fellow Tule author, C.R. Grissom. C.R. lives in San Jose, California—smack dab in the middle of Silicon Valley. She works for a high-tech company by day, and at night writes contemporary sports romance featuring young adults as they transition to college. Very glad you could sit down for a chat, C.R. N: Have you always wanted to be a writer? C: It wasn’t until my late teens I began fantasizing about writing a novel. I’d write a bit here and there and then give up. Initially, I wanted to write a Historical Romance. Later, I wrote a novel that fits with the Romantic…

  • Sunday Snippet: The Validation Edition

    You know who I envy? Writers who have complete faith in their work and themselves. The ones who write a book and always know immediately that it’s great stuff and is going to sell like hotcakes. Or the ones who may know their work needs help, but believe so strongly in their own stories that they push on, striving to make them better. They never doubt their abilities or spend days wondering what they’re doing trying to write a novel, for Pete’s sake. They don’t wonder if they’re fooling everyone, including themselves, with this whole author thing. Sometimes, I can be that writer. When a scene works perfectly, when I’ve…

  • Welcome Author Christi Barth!

    I had the pleasure of sitting down with fellow Tule Publishing author, Christi Barth not long ago to talk about writing and books and her newest release, The Accidental Fiancé. A USA TODAY bestselling author Christi earned a Masters degree in vocal performance and embarked upon a career on the stage. A love of romance then drew her to wedding planning. Ultimately, she succumbed to her lifelong love of books and now writes award-winning contemporary romance, including the Naked Men and Aisle Bound series. Christi can always be found either whipping up gourmet meals (for fun, honest!) or with her nose in a book. She lives in Maryland with the…

  • Sunday Snippet: The Baking/Creating Edition

    This post may seem familiar but at the encouragement of my writing bestie, Liz Flaherty, I’m repeating the one I posted at Word Wranglers this week. I think my audience is different here, but I’m not sure. Anyway, she feels the words bear repeating. I hope you think so, too. I love to bake. I love that if I mix together butter, sugar, eggs, flour, and other sundry ingredients, I will get a basic cookie dough. If I add chocolate chips or nuts or oatmeal or raisins, I’ll have a special tasty treat. Baking is relaxation for me in a way that nothing else is—not even reading or swimming or…

  • Sunday Snippet: The I’m Bugged Edition

    I realize that only people over about 60 will get “I’m bugged, but I try to keep this blog rated PG, so I didn’t title it “The I’m Pissed Edition,” which may more accurately describe my current state of mind. I’ve been in a constant state of “bugged” for the past few weeks and I’m not sure I know why. Or maybe I do, but I’m not willing to own it. It’s this, I think, I’m tired of having to do everything online. Literally, everything. My job, my writing, my communication with others, church, school with Grandboy, visiting with sister and Moe and Liz and my other friends–everything is online.…
