• Autumn Authors: Kyleen Valleaux

    Today, I’m interviewing an author who has quite a bit in common with me. She’s got a wicked awesome sense of humor, loves doggies, can’t live without music, and her muse moves on liquid fuel. Give it up for Kyleen Valleaux! Here’s a bit about her.  Kyleen is a Michigan native and telecommunications veteran. She has been writing since the age of twelve, often forgoing homework for either reading the latest Anne McCaffery novel or penning her original stories. (Said stories are locked in a trunk in her bedroom, never to see the light of day.) She was highly active in the early online Elfquest Community and helped found two round-robin writing…

  • Ellie Mack Editor

    Friendly Neighborhood Friday: Edited By Ellie Mack

    Yes, my friends. When writers draft, we need to do the above. Not only that, but we need more people to look at our words and edit. All. The. Words. But editors only have so much time, and none of those blue boxes which are bigger on the inside (although if you know of a Timelord Editors, I would love to interview them). Anyway, because of the limitations on the time-space continuum, it’s a good thing multiple people have decided to offer editing services. Especially people like Ellie Mack, who I just interviewed! Here’s a little bit about Ellie. Ellie Mack received her BS in cartography from Southeast Missouri State…

    Summer Splash Interview: Leslie Conzatti

        Hey, bloglet fans, here’s the first interview for the tour. Welcome, Leslie Conzatti! Have a look at this gorgeous cover for one of her works right here. Leslie Conzatti is an avid reader, a passionate writer, and a committed lover of all things fantasy. A native of the Pacific Northwest, she has been running the blog “The Upstream Writer” since the beginning of 2013, to promote her own writing and as a medium for interacting with readers.

  • Farmer's Market, Baby

    Live, From North Scituate, It’s…Saturday Morning!

    Going to the country, Gonna meet a lot of authors Going to the country Gonna meet a lot of authors. Ahem. Well, I sure am glad authors don’t come from a can and were put there by a man in a factory downtown. Sounds pretty uncomfortable and not my kind of party. At. All. But the North Scituate Farmer’s Market isn’t remotely like being inside a can. It’s nice and open, no need for a can opener. It even has a gazebo, though I recommend bringing friends if you plan to face it. No one should face the gazebo alone. Anyway, if you’re in Rhode Island this Saturday morning, why not get…

    Welcome to My Bloglet

    I think you’re gonna like it. I think you’re gonna feel you belong. -Alice Cooper   Excuse me for bursting into song there. It’s something I do from time to time. Okay, maybe a little more frequently than that. And I change the words. You can blame Weird Al, but really my grandma was responsible for this habit of mine. You’re lucky I didn’t decide to pursue a career as a popular music parodist. Instead, I wrote some novels. They’re a little bit silly, a little spooky, but mostly fun. They say novelists should have websites and so here’s mine. There’s a front page where I post links to my…
