Re: Just for fun: What movie stars would be best for your MS?

I love casting my MS. This is for my YA.

For my hero, I need brooding with a wicked sense of humor = awesome smirks.
So I envision Ian Somerhalder

for my heroine, I see her as sassy, speaking her mind even when she shouldn't.
So I see Emma Watson.

Re: Your own website?

Someone asked about wix.com, or other such free sites. The advice I've read is avoid these sites because they have ads and it makes it look unprofessional. I suggest trying Wordpress first. It's a blog site that you can use for free. They off lots if nice looking templates, and you can even design y...

Re: Favorite writing distractions

You mean besides cruising through all your favorite forums and catching up and posting.....well, Tweetdeck distracts me because it pops up on my computer. My 3 yo daughter wanting to watch Harry Potter (I get sucked in every time). But my biggest distraction is my TBR pile. And it just keeps growing...

Re: Critique/Review Sites and Groups

I posted on AW, and generally I like the forum. The only problem I have is how large it is - you can get lost, and read posts for days. But what I do like about it is that there are all sorts of genre writers there that are willing to help. The place I use the most is Romance Divas - you don't have ...

Re: Your own website?

I have my own website - or blog - at my domain name. Personally, I don't think there's anything wrong with it, but just remember to keep it professional. I have read that many agents will Google you as they read your query. So if you are ranting about the submission process or pub industry in genera...

Re: Do you write the same genre you read?

I consider myself a reading whore, I will reading just about anything if it will "transport me off this rock" for at least a little while. But I find that I read more of what I'm writing at that moment. Right now, I writing YA paranormal and I find myself drawn in the bookstore to those titles. When...
