Things I Learned at the 2014 Moonlight & Magnolias Conference

I got step-by-step directions on how to create an author website on WordPress. I heard some great tips on how to write for the young adult market. I learned how to create great characters and how to add more conflict to my stories and how to revise them once they are finished. And I discovered […]

2013 Moonlight & Magnolias Conference

I have been so busy the past couple of weeks that I have neglected to share the outcome of Georgia Romance Writers annual Moonlight and Magnolias conference. Since Romance Writers of America’s national conference was held in Atlanta in July, this year’s M&M conference was only a two-day event. But it was a jam-packed couple of […]

Love trumps fear. Every time.

But it finally did, and I got a dose of much needed inspiration and camaraderie at this month’s Georgia Romance Writers meeting. First, we hard author Jane Porter speak. She shared Ten Keys to Success and Survival: What Every Romance Author […]

Digging Deep

I had a blast last Saturday at the January meeting of the Georgia Romance Writers. For the first time ever, I saw my name on the cover of a paperbound book, the Petit Fours and Hot Tamales romance anthology Seasons and Seashells. I was practically jumping up and down when our editor Linsey Lanier delivered […]

I Write Because I Am

Pam Asberry and Jana Oliver Saturday I attended the monthly meeting of George Romance Writers. Jana Oliver was our featured speaker. She provided the kick in the pants I needed. Since mid-November, when I dropped the ball on NaNoWriMo, I have been in a real writing slump. January and February are always busy months for me professionally. […]
