R-E-S-P-E-C-T and Tinder

I've been having a lot of morbid (read: self-deprecating) fun with my antics on Tinder, and it has been just that... fun. People are crazy, and silly, and weird, and I am laughing so much. But today, I had to put my foot down and be serious. Tinder Guy X, let's call him TGX, and I... Continue Reading →

#MyTinderSeries: Now I have to date?

So, I've swiped right and left so much I feel like a wheat harvester with a scythe. Or whatever horror story villain uses a scythe. (Please look up the definition of "scythe" if you don't know that word. Don't be stupid.) After a few weeks, I've found some decent (code: literate and responsive) guys to have... Continue Reading →

#MyTinderSeries: And then there’s me

I awoke on Sunday morning at 7:07, and couldn't get back to sleep. I thought, this would probably be a good time to start walking regularly again. Maybe even get a run in there.

#MyTinderSeries, a blog about…love?

Recently, it has been made painfully obvious to me that I am a hypocrite. (This might have been a self-revelation, but still.) I read about love--I always have at least 1 romance or WF with romantic elements in my "currently reading" list on Goodreads. I write about love--my first published story was a romance. And I...

Writer’s Insight, Q1’18-Indie Publishing Part 1-Covers and Prep (aka editing)

In 2017 after several rejections and the desire to get this novel out there so I can move on to Novel Two, I decided to self-publish my first novel (also the first in a trilogy). For the first 3 months of this year, I've been learning about, signing up for, and immersing myself in the technical... Continue Reading →

#MyTinderSeries: The Online Silent Period

The Monday summer rain bathed me in little droplets of steam as I got out my car and headed into the office. I rode the elevator to my floor, pinning my access card onto my shirt then checking my phone as soon as I was in wi-fi range. Nothing. This is what I call the... Continue Reading →

Why Do Your Book Reviews Matter? | Lauren Faulkenberry

For emerging authors, reviews mean everything. About 10% of readers leave reviews, but here’s why I hope you’ll be in that deeply loved, super-rad elite cross section of fans. The number of reviews help authors get into promotional gold mines like BookBub,… Continue Reading → Source: Why Do Your Book Reviews Matter? | Lauren Faulkenberry

#MyTinderSeries: Unmatching and Judgement

So, I noticed something weird my first couple of days on Tinder. My matches were disappearing. Of course as a newbie--and an old person--I thought it was something wrong with Tinder. Turns out it's something wrong with me. Guys were unmatching me. It's a problem I've had for years. Over 40 years, in fact: I'm... Continue Reading →
