Donna Alward’s Quest to Authordom

April 4 sees the release of my… 47th title since 2006. It seems really surreal that in just over ten years I’ve written that many books, and that there are more on the release schedule for this year. This newest release is the third book in my Darling, VT trilogy from St. Martin’s Press. I loved writing this new series. I felt as if I […]

Abby J. Reed and Her Quest to Authordom

Hi Everyone! My name is Abby J. Reed, author of WHEN PLANETS FALL. Two of the most interesting things about me is that I used to be so flexible I could turn my feet entirely backwards. (As in, I’m facing north and my feet are literally pointing south, backwards.) And I have Chronic Migraine. What do being crazy flexible and migraine have to do with […]

Not All Paths Run Straight by Erica Cameron

Although I wrote stories for myself on and off since middle school, I never quite believed I would be an author one day. It wasn’t until I was almost finished with college (where I double majored in creative writing and psychology) that I began to chase that particular dream. I finished my first non-fanfiction book in 2008. It was about angels. Kind of. A version […]

S. Usher Evans’ Quest to Authordom!

In May 2013, I broke up with the guy I’d thought I was going to marry. After nearly seven years of waiting, I realized (finally) that he wasn’t interested, so I told him we should cut our losses and move on. I start with this major life event in my “writing origin story” because it was the catalyst that changed everything about me. After six […]

My Quest to Authordom (And Great Chocolate Cake) by Shaila Patel

I wrote my first short story in fourth grade with the sort of passion that I didn’t understand at that age. The words had come so easily to me that it could’ve been interpreted as a sign—not that I paid it any heed. (Hindsight!) Unlike most kids with big dreams of pursuing a career in something they love, I floated along rather randomly until high […]

The Quest to Authordom Feature

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. For me, it’s been a bit stressful with NaNoWriMo almost over and being super behind and I started thinking about all things I don’t know about being a writer in the publishing world, whether it’s the “traditional” route or self-published. Which means that I’m definitely not the only one thinking about that so after a lot […]
