Anchors Away!

I’m sailing away tomorrow for 10 days of writing, cruising the Atlantic and hanging out with my bro, and folks. I’m taking one of the four kids with me. I have never been so eager to get on an airplane. I just finished up stuffing envelopes with THE HARD STUFF paraphernalia; cover flats, bookmarks (they turned out awesome) and my business card to over 100 booksellers in the US, Australia and England. I’m tired, and I want to go to bed. And so I will. I bought a nifty Nextel wireless card for my laptop so when we dock each… Read more »

Monday, Monday

Did you know?…”Ithyphallophobia” is a morbid fear of seeing, thinking about or having an erect penis. thankfully my heroes don’t have this annoying little phobia. 😛 I love writing! :typing: I began my second Pocket book today. First line: “Strip.” And so the story begins. I also went to the printers and had bookmarks made for THE HARD STUFF . I have about 200 promo packets to get out before I leave for my 10 day vacation, 7 of which will be on the water. Cannot wait! I heard from Lauren today, she received my MS and is eager to… Read more »

GGGB is Gone

Remember, if you smoke after sex you’re doing it too fast. ~Woody Allen GGGB is gone. (For now. I know it will be back for revisions) I sent the completed MS to both my agent and my editor this afternoon. The great part about it was I only had to hit the send button. No printing, no packaging, no going to the post office and dealing with our local yokels. Nope, it went as an attachment and I was nervous as hell. But, it is done, and now I wait for feedback. Monday I begin on my second contracted book… Read more »

Almost there…

Sex on television can’t hurt you unless you fall off. ~Author Unknown I’m heading down the stretch, I can see the finish line…and I’m closing my eyes, wincing even. The neurosis of writing is creeping up on me like a fog. I can see it, can’t feel it, but all of the sudden I’m are ensconced in it, and it’s stifling me. It’s daunting, and scary. I know when my editor says, “Karin we have some work to do, but your story is fine,” the fog will lift. Of course I have gone to my published friends and at gun… Read more »

Plotting ‘er brainstorming party

“When I’m good I’m very, very good but when I’m bad I’m better.” Mae West. Book two plotted. Title, SKIN Jaded cop vs Mafia princess. :hello2: This past weekend I holed up in my house with two other authors. We plotted 4 ST’s, drank, ate, laughed, cried and generally had a hell of a time. I’m exhausted. While my one friend refused to call what we did plotting, she repeatedly used the term brainstorming. OK we brainstormed our character’s GMC’s and the beginning middle and end of the stories. So, sure we brainstormed. My family was great. Two of my… Read more »
