Grrrr Synopsis

So happy to have finally finished editing my YA Scifi novel but, my god!  Writing the synopsis to send out to agents is like wringing the life out of a beloved pet.See More

"I agree with Terri - try all things & see what you are good at. Publish erotica under a pen name if you are embarrassed! Anne Rice did this! Not saying she was embarrassed of course just that she used a pen name!"

Fifty Shades of Scarlet

OK, I finally read 50shades and felt inspired to have a go myself. No, not that! At writing erotica.  Anyway, I had an idea of writing an ebook of erotic shorts, each one in a different genre.  I wrote my first short story, full of sexual tension and naughtiness.But, then I felt really embarrassed and slightly dirty for having put that kind of stuff down on paper, so I abandoned it without its climax (in both senses!).So, now my dilemma is; I feel bad that I have left the story unfinished but,I…See More

Punctuating And and But

I was just wondering what the general concensus was on using commas with the word 'and and 'but'?I know there is a mixed bunch here, so it would be interesting to get a perspective from both sides of the pond.Personally, I rarely use a comma with the word 'and' as I don't like the look of it but, I usually do with the word 'but'.  However, I have recently written a story with a fast pace and short, punchy sentences - using the word 'but' between short clauses WITHOUT a comma because that is how…See More

Three Women

Posted on March 24, 2014 at 21:08 7 Comments

Three women, breezy dresses; one honey-skinned, perhaps from somewhere hot and spiced, the other two could have been sisters, mousey, not thin or fat or particularly tall or short.  Three women, about forty, I cannot recall what they wore on their feet.

I remember walking past them, squeezing along the narrow strip of pavement between their café-side chairs and the busy street.  I smiled as I turned inward to shimmy past.  The one with lovely skin glanced up and our eyes registered…

Title Advice?

Posted by Daniel Hale on December 14, 2015 at 18:29 0 Comments

I just completed, as near as I can tell, my first book: a collection stories disguised as a novel. I do currently have a working title that I was initially happy with, BUT it may now be too obscure or inapplicable.

The title as it is now is "The Psalterdemalion." This is a combination of two of my favorite words: Psalter, which is a small book of psalms, and Tatterdemalion, which is a man dressed in multicolored rags and tatters. My thinking was that the man character, a story thief,…

So I've got my stories together for my first collection, and am currently working on the connecting narrative. I haven't even thought yet how I'm gonna get this published. Gotta start thinking what I need to do.

Premonition

Mark stood on a sea cliff top. A wave below roared in and sprayed out a ferocious impact. Its retreat left a glistening carpet of foamy shale. To his left, a slender figured girl appeared, dressed only in a skimpy black nightie. Her blonde…
