31 Days of Author Madness: Leigh W. Stuart

March 1, 2018, Author: Kristin Jacques

The Fiver 1. What is your writing process? My process is currently up in the air, but I’ve always flirted with some form or other of outlining. Sometimes, I’ll jot a couple pages of notes, other times, I’ll fill half a notebook of chapter/scenes to do. No matter what, though, I always know the ending […]

February Blues

February 14, 2018, Author: Kristin Jacques

This month started with such promise ….   Until I became a flu-ridden, wheezing, clammy mouth breather.   Welcome to the wonders of Winter, where your children are walking petri dishes and life likes to taken sudden unexpected pivots into waiting ditches.

I can’t support this tweet enough.   The holiday season can be tight for many reasons. Unexpected expenses pop up, you always seem to spend more than you mean to, and something in the house always seems to sputter out. The spirit of generosity is a beautiful thing, but generosity does not have to mean […]

December 8, 2017, Author: Kristin Jacques

Why serials?   It’s not the advent of the internet invented serial fiction. On the contrary, it was pretty common to serialize a novel throughout the 1800’s. Dickens made a career from serializing his work. Somewhere along the way, with the rise of publishing houses, releasing a work all in one go with bare minimum […]
