As promised, I've chosen to share some of my own experiences and tips in a complimentary post to Alura Cein's that I featured in the previous message here on S.D. Since I have worked with Her for a number of years, I can definitely vouch for how the world has changed; and because I've spent... Continue Reading →
New literary update.
I hope my readers have enjoyed “Lady Of Attica”. Now that another project can be checked off my to-do list, I’m tackling a new assignment while working on furthering my education in the literary and publishing field. It’s a big job but will be worth it in the end.
I would encourage any writer who is interested in being published to never stop learning in their spare time. I’ve already discovered some helpful sources and good advice, and it’s sure to pay off.
Meanwhile, I hope to release more content to Superlative Deviation in the coming month. Stay tuned.
Revisions on poetry pieces are under way! I’ve chosen the basic arrangement and exactly which poems will be in this manuscript. I’m very happy with how it’s shaping up and might begin releasing a few excerpts sometime next month.
I have been working on furthering my education in the publishing field and will be sharing a couple of good resources I’ve found to this site. I have to divide up my time now because more priorities are demanding my attention, but I will still work to update T.W.N. on schedule.
New content has been posted to S.D. Feel free to check it out! A new update will be released to the blog soon with some interesting news.

I’m pleased to announce the submission process has begun! I’m awaiting replies from a couple of agents, while also searching for others to query. I’m taking my time and being very careful, asking as many probing questions as possible. It’s the best way to avoid scams that target new authors.
For anyone looking to find a professional with good credentials to submit your work to – regardless of genre – I highly recommend using the resources of the A.A.R. or another such organization that verifies legitimacy and ethics. It means nothing if an agent themselves is also a writer or has successfully placed a lot of other authors with good publishers. These days, there are a number of people in the industry who take advantage of first-time writers. Agents who are honest and serious about their profession take the time to gain and maintain membership in A.A.R. This…

Update on poetry book! More news still to come.
As visitors and followers of my author site are aware, I’ve begun removing some content and making several updates to pages and posts. I’m happy to say that I have collected all the poems I have written to date, and the revisions are progressing very well. Several pieces that have been deleted from this site have been re-written and expanded. I will continue to share updates but am not posting excerpts quite yet.
Working on the poetry is a nice change of pace from the cozy mystery. And yes, an update on that is forth-coming, as well.
