Special Guest: Melissa Craig

We all know the saying “sex sells” and for Australian erotic author Melissa Craig, it certainly does! This week we have the pleasure of chatting with her about what it takes to write erotic romance fiction, how it’s perceived and what Aussie newbies need to know when it comes to Amazon royalties. Catharine is busy this week in San Francisco so Dionne Lister is co-hosting.

From Melissa’s website:

I am very lucky toRead More

Fundraising by selling ebooks – a new approach


With our guest who wrote the book on fundraising with books – Lissa Provost

I’d love to talk about how I got started writing poetry and how I came to write “eBook Fundraising” through a SFWC connection.

It was published last August by BookBaby as a free guide on their website. You can link to it at http://www.bookbaby.com/free-publishing-guides. And I’m always prepared to recite poetry on the spot. 

I also blog “Crafting a Family” at www.themensamom.blogspot.com. That’s the best place to find/follow me.
I have a number of works in progress including a supernatural sci-fi series inspired by the Christian Mystics, a poetry chapbook, a poetry children’s book, an art book, andRead More

Co-host: Dionne Lister

So Catharine’s busy enjoying the silly season, and whilst I should be too, I decided to hijack the show completely and have Author, editor and Tweeper Dionne Lister host a show with me. Bound to be fun, and quickly spiraled into talk of her latest creation: Close Call: A Doris & Jemma Vadgeventure

What is a Vadgeventure you ask? Let’s think about it for a moment.

Dionne is a trendsetter for Newbie Writers. First guest to drop an F-Bomb on our show and this time around, the first conversation about vagina’s. That’s right, we have the vagina talk for most of the show. Are you feeling uncomfortable or intrigued? I’d like your feedback below in the comments section. We discuss how using such terms has increased in awkwardness and howRead More

A Time of Darkness is the second book in the best-selling Circle of Talia series. This exciting epic fantasy is filled with magic, dragons and adventure.

While Bronwyn languishes in a cell in the bowels of Vellonia and the dragon king argues for her death, the gormons are one step closer to destroying Talia. To add to The Circle’s problems,Read More

I almost feel like I’m spamming everyone; my cover was ready so I did the cover reveal, and I was going to wait to upload to Amazon, but I couldn’t! So now, the next book in  The Circle of Talia series is out there. You can find it on Amazon or Smashwords and soon iTunes, Kobo and Barnes & Noble. The sequel to Shadows of the Realm continues the story of realmists, Bronwyn and Blayke and their creaturas, Sinjenasta and Fang. It’s fast-paced, scary and has awesome dragons (although those who have read Shadows of the Realm would know that).
I hope a lot of readers are waitingRead More

Episode 16

Newbie Writers podcast January 16  (Catharine is riding elephants in Thailand today)

Guest Anne Naylor, Dionne Lister

What do readers want?

How can we as writers’ give it to them or even know what the hell it is?

What readers want.

As an emerging writer, I want (and need) to know what readers want.
These are my thoughts.

As a reader, this is what I know:

My time is precious. I am very busy and I beg, borrow and steal time away from other things to read. There is too much to do, too little time to do it in and too much information to deal with on a daily basis. An author needs to give me a very compelling reason to start, and then continue reading his/her work.

I have a short attention span. I don’t necessarily read a book from start to finish. My eyesRead More
