Linda J. White here, writing from my shady back deck in Somerville, Virginia. I just got back from the Eastern Shore, where I had book signings at two independent bookstores at the beach–just one of my face-to-face marketing techniques.
Hi! I’m Kathy Ide. In addition to being a published author, I’m a full-time professional freelance editor. For CAN, I’m blogging about tips for writers based on the manuscripts I edit.
Davalynn Spencer here, writing from Colorado where evening thunderstorms send hot temperatures sailing. I am happy to welcome our Encore author, R. J. Larson/Kacy Barnett-Gramckow.
Kacy, how many books do you have published?
As Kacy Barnett-Gramckow, I have four published works: The Genesis Trilogy (Moody Publishers) and Dawnlight (Elk Lake Publishing.)
Welcome to the Friday CAN post this December from Gail Gaymer Martin at www.gailgaymermartin.com. I always happy to share information for writers on techniques of writing, especially writing fiction.
Readers are important so knowing how to help them connect to what you write is important. I hope this post will provide you with techniques and ideas that work.
Readers love stories that mean something to them. They may never experience the same event or problem, but they’ve had similar experiences or fears that those things might happen to them. It’s through the emotion authors bring to the characters that makes readers care. Caring creates an emotional connection. This is what you want.
Blessings to you from Bonnie Leon.
Most days do you stay cloistered in your office with your story ideas flying onto your computer screen or your nose in a research book seeking an imperative piece of information that turns out to be impossible to find? That’s the writing life, but there’s more to living than that. And if you’re not experiencing it you’re missing special pleasures offered to us by our Heavenly Father. There is so much to be gained by engaging in the world around us.
