Tomorrow, May 2020 will be here. April 2020 was either the month that seemed to last for YEARS or the month that didn’t happen.

I’m looking forward to getting a new flow of reviews and additional features active on Cardinal Bluff!

The Publishing Circle

Sheltering-in-Place was made infinitely easier by a generous offer from Linda Stirling of The Publishing Circle.

Linda organized and presented an Author’s Novel Writing Bootcamp for 10 days! Every day, we were treated to at least an hour of Facebook Live to share tips about novel/story writing and our own self-critique of ‘homework’ projects.

I’m not a novelist by any estimate. I enjoyed the homework, using a nursery story as my ‘vehicle’. Several WIP books were given guidance on writing techniques, tools such as Trello and tips to please editors.

The Authors’ Camp led to other connections with a publishing house, The Publishing Circle, which I believe is worth an author’s time to check.

Wednesday, May 06

This week has been a busy one! I’m honored to be on the launch team for a new Christian Suspense release. The Mischief Thief was released today as announced on Christian Suspense and Mischief — Find The Stolen Horse.

You can get your own copy at Amazon for 99¢

Remember our author friends benefit from reviews about their art. Subscribers can download their free copy of Book Notes to keep track of review notes. And have ongoing access to other new things that will be coming to the Resource Library at Cardinal Bluff.
