News, Letters, and Newsletters!


I know I'm late to the party, but I'll soon be launching my brand-new, sparkling and shiny Newsletter!

Since I have no idea what to actually do with a newsletter (I'm sure this will change soon!) I'll just write a lot of short stories and side stories from my novels which means you'll get exclusive stuff to read. Sign up if you want more stories about Jon and Naomi, about Liese and Duncan and Sunset Bay or if you want to be the first to know when a new book will be released! 


If you've been reading my blog you already know that every now and then I post a short story from a different genre: SciFi, fantasy, crime. I promise you'll get more of those exclusively through the newsletter!

I promise not to spam you. This should be a fun thing for you and me. So, let's do this!
You can find the sign-up box on the upper right side of my blog! Join me, let's have some fun! >>>>>>>

Paris


It is true that changing your profile pic on Facebook or twitter or anywhere else to show the French flag really changes nothing. Neither does changing your cover photo to ‪#‎NousSommesUnis

Neither does visiting the sites of the attacks and laying down flowers or lighting a candle. You see, it's the same thing. We aren't in Paris. Most of us don't have a French embassy around the corner where we can go to pay our respects. 
What we CAN do though is share our stunned grief right here, on ‪#‎Facebook, where we come to chat and play and have a good time. Yes, we'll take those flags and peace signs and words down again. Probably soon, too. Because the world is harsh. Because life must go on, no matter what. It does go on, and so must we. 

But for a moment, for a few days, while we had that French flag on our profile images, we put our own lives on hold to share the grief, to try and give comfort, and to understand that whatever is going on in our little world–there is always worse. Always.

Because Kim Asked


On writing. Just start.

One morning you’ll wake up and find that this is the day and you’ll sit down and write.





Don’t think too much. Don’t worry. Don’t read writing advice, never, ever!


Don’t let anyone read it while you’re still writing the story, and don’t tell anyone. You’ll only end up getting asked stupid questions.



Don’t lose faith. 

Don’t be afraid! 




There are no shortcuts. It takes a while to write a novel. 
And there's no "ultimate how-to guide". You've got to figure it out on your own.





Don't ask yourself why you're writing, or if it will be signed by a publisher. Just write. You're writing for yourself, not for an audience. You'll always be writing for yourself.
Finish what you're writing before you allow yourself to start something new. Always finish! 
And have fun.
