Curse Keepers #4

Posted by on Oct 3, 2014 in General | 0 comments

YES! There will be a Curse Keepers book #4! And also a #5 and #6. I’m getting some feedback that readers feel deceived by the “trilogy” label on the Curse Keeper series, when the series isn’t ending. I never intended the series to be a trilogy. I planned on writing least six books in the Curse Keeper series, possibly more. 47North was well aware of this. I sold them the first three books and three short stories. The original synopsis for book three ended with a very unsatisfying ending for a series.  So I wrote the...

Curse Keepers Manteo Reader Weekend

Posted by on Sep 18, 2014 in General | 1 comment

The weekend of June 12-14, 2015 I will be hosting my first ever reader weekend in Manteo, North Carolina. Why Manteo? It’s the setting for my Curse Keeper series.     Manteo, North Carolina is on Roanoke Island and is a relatively small town. When you write about city, you can gloss over places, but in a town of 1200, it’s not so easy. I’ve visited Manteo three times for research and many of the places in the book either really exist or exist but I changed the name. Last spring two readers visited Roanoke Island...

Meet-Ups with Denise! Meet Me in YOUR City!

Posted by on Aug 31, 2014 in General | 14 comments

In 2015, instead of going to author events, I’ve decided to start creating “meet and greet” sessions. Once a month or every other month, I’ll travel to one or two locations and meet readers in an informal setting, giving us a chance to sit around and chat. You can ask me questions and I can share things most readers don’t know. You can buy books and swag (Crappy Doodles mugs, Team Joe and Team Mason shirts anyone?) Purchase is NOT required. We’ve tried this in two locations now (see the photo) and I loved...

Happy Third Book Birthday Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes!!!

Posted by on Jul 1, 2014 in General | 23 comments

Three years ago today I entered the publishing world when I released the eBook of Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes on Amazon, B&N and Smashwords. But silly me didn’t officially declare the release for another week–until the print book came out. Hahahahaha! You see, even then I was still thinking in traditional publisher terms. A print book was VERY important to me. That made it a “real” book. Little did I know then what I know now–about 98-99% of all my sales are eBooks. (BTW, I still make a print book of all...
