I Want A New Drug
Some people say you should write what you know. It makes sense, doesn’t it? After all, you can deliver a more compelling story if you’re familiar with the subject. My editor told me from day one to expand out of my comfort zone and do just the opposite. When I wrote Unlikely Venture, I hadContinue reading “I Want A New Drug”
How To Make The Lust Last
Kevin Hale, partner of Y Combinator and founder of Wufoo, recently gave a fab presentation at Stanford as part of the “How To Start a Startup” course. I LOVE these sessions. It’s so great to gain perspective from those who’ve been successful putting their lessons into practice. You know the saying “those who can’t do, teach?” Not the case with thisContinue reading “How To Make The Lust Last”
Recipe For A Startup Romance
If you saw my last post “Wanna Learn How To Start A Startup?” you know that running a startup is pretty much a 24 x 7 gig, which begs the question, are there any slivers of time in a given day dedicated to dating and romance? I mean, even entrepreneurs need love, right? Interesting andContinue reading “Recipe For A Startup Romance”
How Can I Find Key Influencers In My Niche?
Start-ups are typically cash-poor, at least in their very early days. So how the heck are CEOs supposed to get the word out about their fabulous offerings? Marketing firms, publicists, advertisers…everything costs MONEY! CEOs need boku bucks in order to develop their ideas into something saleable but then they need even MORE money to reachContinue reading “How Can I Find Key Influencers In My Niche?”
Oh To Be Young And In Love….But When Is It Ever That Simple?
I love stumbling upon a great book, one that draws me in immediately, one that I cannot put down, one that elicits both tears and laughter. As authors, we strive to bring this experience to readers. Ryan Ringbloom seems to have it down to a science. I read Panic on the heels of Flaw, my very firstContinue reading “Oh To Be Young And In Love….But When Is It Ever That Simple?”
Why Write Romance? Is It An Escape Or A Revival?
Relationships are hard. That’s a shocking revelation, right? They take work and dedication and tremendous amounts of patience, every day. There’s never a break. Most times, I’m happy to say things with Hubby click. But on occasion, the edges fray a little and bickering ensues. Chalk that one up to two stubborn Type As, lackContinue reading “Why Write Romance? Is It An Escape Or A Revival?”
The Lady Devil With A Passion For Jamba Juice
As I write this post, I am actively fighting the urge to devour the remaining Russell Stover chocolate marshmallow eggs in the pantry. Just saying. I really need to get rid of this leftover Easter candy. Sugar comas = lost productivity! I get way too fidgety to write compelling dialogue when I’m all amped upContinue reading “The Lady Devil With A Passion For Jamba Juice”
I Had An Epiphany…And It Involved Chili And Triple X
I had an epiphany today. Over chili. It was lunchtime and Hubby was out with the boys. He called for our order and as usual, came home with way more than I’d asked for, including a cup of chili. I wrinkled my nose. “Chili? Why?” He looked surprised. “You love chili, so I wanted toContinue reading “I Had An Epiphany…And It Involved Chili And Triple X”
Look Out Hollywood! This Book’s Got Silver Screen Potential!
Someone recently asked me if i could see Unlikely Venture made into a movie at some point. I suppose that would naturally come after it lands on the NYT bestseller list, right? I’m sure it comes as no shock to anyone (especially fellow writers) that I most certainly think it has silver screen potential. Heck,Continue reading “Look Out Hollywood!
