Tonight is the first show!!

Speaking of shows, I was part of an amazing panel of editors this week. We broke down the editing process, when you should hire an editor, and what you should expect from your editor. Definitely worth a watch. 

And that ties right into my upcoming book!! I have sent it off for final edits. It's scheduled for release on December 25th, just in time for all those New Years Resolutions!!!

Okay, yes, it is literally putting words on a page, but a truly spectacular book is more than just a written stream of consciousness. You can write lots of pretty words and put them on a page, but that doesn't make it a good book. To craft that unputdownable masterpiece, you have to understand the structure of storytelling, and how to apply it for maximum results. 
In this book you will,
·         Learn the scaffolding of story structure, and how to use it.
·         Capitalize on plotting tips that even a Pantser can get behind.
·         Understand the seven forms of conflict and how to apply them for the biggest payoff.
·         Discover the secret sauce to creating compelling characters.
·         Access cheat sheets to help you revise your story with flair.
·         Utilize word swaps to add sizzle to your scene.
·         Employ simple self-editing practices that will make your copyeditor love you. 
In this book, Katie Salidas, a veteran of the publishing trenches, reveals all her quick and dirty tips. Addressing both sides of the writing process, writing that first draft to self-editing, she'll help you overcome the worst case of writer's block so you can finally finish that damn book you've been dreaming of writing.

Well that's all for me this week. But, that doesn't mean I have forgotten about the steals and deals for you.

Happy Reading. 

See no evil. Hear no evil. Speak no evil. Sleep with no evil… If only it were that easy.

Between being kidnapped by a psycho dragon-shifter, influenced by ancient relics, and fighting for my freedom, I’d say my hands are full. But really, my troubles have just begun.

Cain, Dorian, and Elias are wickedly dangerous, scorching hot, and all too tempting. They’re devils in disguise. Literally.

I don’t know why they’re collecting these relics, but it looks like I’m not the only one with secrets. Despite all the risks, I might be falling for the three of them. But there's a good chance this Hellish relationship ends up being the death of me.

To make matters worse, there may be something more to my shadow than I originally thought. Something evil that’s set on taking over me entirely if I let it. With each passing day, I find myself falling deeper into its darkness and further under the demons’ deadly charms.

There’s no other way around it... Things are quickly going to Hell in a handbasket.
