Magpie’s Song: Happy Release Day!

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | Leave a comment
It’s here! So excited to finally have Magpie’s Song out and in the wild! I’m still out and about in Moab (which if you follow me on social media at all, you probably know quite well as I’ve been uploading a fair amount of pictures/video of some of the off-roading stuff.) Internet is still rather sparse, and today I’ll be hiking around somewhere so if I don’t respond to emails or tweets or whatnot in a timely fashion it’s because the signal is so bad – but I will as soon as I can!) In the meantime, LilyElement is doing a giveaway on her blog, so if you’d like a chance to win a copy of Magpie’s Song, head on over that way and take a chance. If you’ve already read it/plan on reading it, I’m just going to ask that you take a few moments and throw up a… Read more

Carniepunk Giveaway Winner

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , | 3 Comments
Okay – after taking a tally of all the answers for the Carniepunk contest, I had ms Lucy draw the lucky winner and it’s Susan! (4th comment down on the above linked post.) So, if Susan could contact me at apang at heartofthedreaming dot com with her address information, I’ll get that copy of Carniepunk sent out next week. If I don’t hear from her by Tuesday, I will draw another winner. Thanks so much to everyone who participated! 🙂 And on an unrelated note, I haven’t linked to any updated Fox & Willow pages, lately – but we’re up to page 130 now and in the home stretch. (I think we’re aiming for a nice round 150 pages at this point and then we’ll be taking a little break as we prepare for the next chapter.)… Read more

Word-Whore ~ Fox and Willow Thursday

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | Leave a comment
Fox & Willow will actually be updated later on today – but this link will always take you to the latest page, so check back in a little while (probably sometimes this evening.) In the meantime I’m over at Word Whores today, talking about books and series and just how long is too long? (Heh. *Is* there such a thing?? ) Also, just a heads up that the author chat/Shindig I was supposed to host with Sandy Williams last week on our book release date was rescheduled to tonight – 7 PM, EST. RSVP here! (I might be a few minutes late – turns out the boy sproglet had a field trip today and won’t be back until 6:30 or so and I have to pick him up at his school. I’ll be as fast as I can.) And gah! I’ve been forgetting to put my links to my blog… Read more

Word-Whore ~ Fox and Willow Thursday

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , , | Leave a comment
Gonna be a short and sweet post today – working from home because I’m in a pain overload of some sort. Maybe it’s the weather – I hear there’s some sort of mega storm coming our way (just in time for me to try to fly to Toronto next week, huzzah!). In either case, I’m all about the ice packs today, so there we go. Otherwise, I’m over at Word Whores  talking about writing horror scenes. It’s not really all that great a post because I don’t write horror and I’m not that fond of reading it either. (Though I did post the excellent Actual Cannibal Shia LeBouf video, so there is that.) And Fox & Willow is updated today too. 🙂 Blog Tour link: Ramblings From This Chick – there’s a Phineas-centric excerpt from Trace of Moonlight posted here, so go check that out if you want to get… Read more

Self-Insertion

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , , | 9 Comments
I was musing the other day on the whole PoV thing. I like writing in 1st. I *can* write in 3rd, but I just prefer 1st for some reason. This new book I’m working on is actually in 1st person present – again, I’m not sure why, and I don’t know if it will stay that way. Just seems to be the way it wants to come out and I’ve learned it’s not worth fighting the muse over. I always hear that writing in 1st person is risky since a lot of people don’t seem to care for it. Maybe it’s the limited information or the “I did x” lines that tend to get on people’s nerves. Personal preference is what it is, but one thing I sometimes wonder is if readers tend to be harsher on the protags of a 1st person story. Books are often escapist, and I… Read more
