Labor Pains: How Writing a Novel is Like Childbirth

Good morning, dear readers! Now I am not the first author to compare a novel to one's baby or writing it to childbirth. First there is the conception, which may take months to come to fruition or could occur completely by chance in the middle of the night - quite unexpectedly! After the idea for the novel is conceived comes the period of gestation, which for me at least takes months. (Is it a coincidence that when I began wrote the first draft of  Pulse and Prejudice , I typed "The End" exactly 9 months later on my twins' birthday?) Months of writing, nurturing, receiving advice from everyone on what could be done better to ensure a healthy outcome. Making preparations - a cover to cradle the upcoming release. A complete matching set of everything - from banners to bookmarks - welcoming it into the world. Tell everyone to expect its arrival! Then the birth. The nerves at the approaching due date. Will everything go well? What if its not healthy? People reje

What Is Noir Fiction?

Good morning, dear readers! The Widow - a noir romantic suspense - will be released on Wednesday, August 5th. Many readers, however - unless they are long-time fans of the genre - may not be familiar with noir fiction or what it represents.

Other common characteristics include the self-destructive qualities of the protagonist. A typical protagonist of the Noir fiction is dealing with the legal, political or other system that is no less corrupt than the perpetrator by whom the protagonist is either victimized and/or has to victimize others on a dail

A Very Sexy Time from THE WIDOW for My Sexy Saturday

Greetings, and welcome to a NEW My Sexy Saturday! This week’s theme is A Very Sexy Time ! Releasing this Wednesday, August 5th , The Widow is a noir romantic thriller with Catherine as the troubled, disillusioned, self-destructive heroine and David, the hero, an undercover DEA agent, who cannot bring himself to trust her nor ignore his obsession with her, which haunts his dreams. Here is a short excerpt, about why David might be willing to risk a multi-million dollar DEA operation, or even his life, for her.... The moment the door to the suite closed behind them, David jerked Catherine back against his chest and into his arms, assaulting her mouth, pouring all his pent-up aggression into the kiss. They had never “made up” after their argument, and he wasn’t about to let her raise that icy barrier between them again. But instead of resisting, she flung her arms around his neck, matching his fervor, a conflagration of passion. He untied the knot at the back of her
