      Hi Everyone! Would any East Tennessee authors be interested in a local chapter of SINC (Sisters In Crime)?

    • Man of Salt
      7:10 a.m. Monday morning... Black crows flew in Henry Applewhite’s dreams. Maybe it was a Poe thing?  Redemption? Atonement? He crossed his chest, raised the knife above his head. He couldn't make up his mind whether to cut on a forty five degree angle or slice it horizontally with and butter toast.  He bites. Ummm!Umm! […]

    • Contemporary Poetry: Thoughts and Considerations
      If we are going to understand what contemporary poetry is, we need to clearly define our terms and understand what we mean by them. In searching this out, I found one reference that put it quite well: By definition of its namesake, contemporary poetry is considered poetry written within our lifetime, and includes poems written […]

    • A Nightmare: When the Muse Gets Too Quiet by Marie Lavender
      It is a writer’s worst fear – what they call ‘writer’s block’. Being frozen when you intend to work on your project. The idea that the well has officially dried up.

    • So…You Want to Create Your Own Book Trailer? by Marie Lavender
      Being an author is hard. One must not only write books, but also take on different roles. They have to be editors, marketers, bloggers, advisers, and the list goes on. In the publishing journey, a writer learns that very few things are for free, or at least affordable.  Book trailers are a great tool in […]

    • DIY Your Book Cover (Or Not) by Marie Lavender
      If you’ve ever self-published or considered it at least, it probably crossed your mind that a good book cover would probably help to “sell” the book. It’s true that presentation is everything; how the sales page appears with the book description and the cover are extremely important. Often, if the book cover isn’t up to […]
