About the Book

Disclaimer: This is a rough draft. Tagline and brief detail are subject to change.

Tagline: They told her she’d never get out alive. She told them she didn’t care.

Gracie grew up as the daughter of the president of one of the most feared motorcycle clubs in history. When her father was murdered, she was devastated to learn the club voted in her brother as the new president. She didn’t even get VP.

Determined to show a woman could make it in the biker world, as more than someone’s old lady, Gracie lied, cheated, and stole her way up the chain to form her own motorcycle club.

Take everything you’ve ever thought you knew about MC’s and throw it out the window. It’s 2014 and the rules have changed. And so has Gracie.

Daily blogging part 2

I’ve done some research and opinions, as always, vary. Here’s some of my favorite details and information.

Jane Friedman says it’s time to stop blogging unless your a new author/blogger. The article of reference is here.

Paranormal author Jami Gold covers the question of authors needing a website or blog at all. This article is here. She feels they’re both important and even conducts workshops on them.

Do authors really need a blog by Belinda Pollard, to me, she seems to feel the same, if you’re not a best-selling author, build up your audience.

But, if you do become a best-selling author. How do you say goodbye? Or do you drop to that once a week thing?

Through all of this, I saw no definite, clear answer. Or how often to make your blog appearance.

Daily blogging

Is it really a have to? Maybe once a week? Twice a week?

What’s too much? What’s not enough?

My schedule isn’t a very strict one other than I have to write for a solid three hours a day. I plan to increase it once I’ve decided on an agent. But until then, I have plenty of time for research, which I don’t include as writing time, and queries to agents and publishers.

This weekend, I’m going to stray a bit and try to brainstorm some blog topics and try to determine how much I really need to blog.

Unfortunately for those that follow me, Twitter is quickly becoming an addiction.

The writing area

I see it’s often referred to as a cave, but that sounds simply to unpleasant; like one of those locations I’d have in one of my books for torture. I have a writing area and it tends to move from place to place in my home. It’s really fueled by what I need to get accomplished and my mood for the day.

Truth be, I believe that writing, for an author, should be pleasant. It’s what we love to do. So why call our writing location a cave? It should be comfortable and fun for us. Help us to relax, motivate us, inspire us.

I have plush pillows and soft blankets. They’re great for winter writing while sitting beside your window watching the snow fall. Winter’s actually the best time to write as well, you’re not missing the sun. Well, not the overly warm summer sun.

Networking

This is difficult. How does one person determine where it’s most beneficial to spend their online time. I definitely don’t have much of it. And what I do is most often spent on researching. I decided on twitter and facebook so far and keep being told I need to be here or there. How does it even help when you’re a new author and new to networking? I don’t have any television or movie deals to put my name in lights. Maybe one day?

I write crime and violence. Sure there’s sex laced in with it, but it’s still not as popular as straight romance.

Where does everyone else hang out?
