Silence May or May Not Be Golden...

 Too many locations, too little time...  Between researching/writing and maintaining a social media presence,  I have neglected this page/blog.  It is not intentional nor that I have nothing to say; rather, that there are just too many demands on my time!

Frustration...

 Frustration: When you write Historical Fiction and discover that your presumption about a certain situation in a certain period in history was wrong by over 100 years... and then having to go back and fix the story line...

BUT... it's all good. I strive for thematic historical accuracy in my books, often spending as much (or more) time researching as I do actually writing. The discovery led me to write another essay for the English Historical Fiction Authors blog.

Collaboration

 Just last week, my poet partner and I released a collaborative compilation of her poems and short stories. The book, titled "Weep and Wail," is available on Amazon (print, e-book, and Kindle Unlimited) and Barnes and Noble (print only).  As a teaser, I read one of her poems aloud and shared that reading on FB.  

See:  https://www.facebook.com/100008600746042/videos/2345380019092000

If you like what you see and hear, the book contains about 100 other poems and a handful of very interesting short stories.


Happy Reading/Listening!

It's A Rough Life

Being an Indie author and publisher is challenging. If you aren't writing your own works, you are editing someone else or mentoring them through the process.  In other words, there is no time left for anything else!

Because of the need to focus my creative energies elsewhere, I made the conscious decision to "neglect" my blog for a while. During the nearly four months since my last post, I have co-authored a book of poetry and prose with a friend in Portugal while at the same time mentoring a COVID-19 survivor through authoring and publishing his memoir of the experience. The poetry tome was released last week and the COVID-19 book should be out within the next month. Never a dull moment!

If you are a fan of poetry and/or short stories, please search for "Weep and Wail" or "Lisa Talbott" on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.  Lisa is my co-author and her poems offer something for everyone.
