Recommendations for editing services: a whole page full

I have so many recommendations for editing services now that I have a whole page full of them. I thought I'd share them with you. I'd also like to thank all these wonderful authors for helping to support me and my family. You are my benefactor. Thankyou. Here are there words: "Tahlia has a way [...]

The biggest impediment to success

No matter what field you’re in, or what you consider success to be, achievement of any kind comes, to some extent, through learning. Those at the top of their game have learned what they need to know to do it well. Whether they learned formally or informally, through life experience or in a classroom, they [...]

The Science and Concept Behind Intelligent Design: Revelations

I run  AIA Publishing and the first book I published for someone else is the one mentioned above, written by J.MErickson. On the Awesome Indies Blog today, he has written a post about the concept behind the story which any of you interested in space science and metaphysics will probably enjoy, so pop on over [...]

Literary Fiction: Not an Excuse for Boring

Literary fiction is supposed to be a category for beautifully written, moving fiction that crosses genres or otherwise doesn’t fit into the genre categories. It’s supposed to deal with ‘deeper’ themes than genre fiction, but that attitude can be elitist, since there is nothing to stop something that fits a genre category from dealing with [...]

I have a publisher!

It’s official. My books are now published by S & H Publishing. If you take a look at the S & H website, you’ll see that they’re a small publisher, so why did I agree to let them publish my books—didn’t I have all that together already? Yes and no. I had my books out, [...]

Small publishers: why consider one?

Self-published authors have total responsibility for everything related to their book, and though some people love the idea of having total control and running their own business, some don’t; they’d rather just write. So self-publishing, for all its advocates, is not, and never will be, for everyone. Those who’d prefer to have someone else publish [...]

Show Don’t Tell: Telling is Not WRONG, Just Unfashionable.

The human mind has a tendency to see things dualistically. We assume that if this thing is good, then its opposite must be bad, and if this thing is bad, it must always be bad. We also have a tendency to solidify ideas so that a general suggestion, in our mind, becomes a hard and [...]

My favourite Photo: light reflections on a Thai water feature.

Every morning during our stay at The Merlin Beach resort in Thailand, I sat with my husband by a water feature while we ate breakfast. Two sheets of water flowed from rectangular openings in a sandstone block wall and fell into a pebble strewn pool. The morning light dancing o the water caught my eye. [...]

Delightfully unusual metaphysical fiction: Review

‘The Commons: The Journeyman’ is a delightfully unusual book that spans multiple genres. It takes place in the Commons, a place between life and death, something like purgatory for Christians and the Bardo of Becoming for Buddhists. On the surface it’s fantasy, but, like my own work, it’s also metaphysical fiction and, because of the [...]
