TaKe Two & Back to the Front!!

New Beginnings …and this one is a celebratory one! To All my followers I have decided that this blog needs a revamp. While I love every single  post and ramble  have posted on this blog,  I have gotten that spring cleaning bug (ok so I am quite a few months behind …its the way my head works!)Starting tomorrow this Site, To Write is Right!!!, will be UNDER CONTSTRUCTION. No pertinent information will be deleted, however older material and up and coming material will be presented in new ways. *writer of this post scratches her head and wonders if she can pull this off. She is no pro blogger by any means and wishes she had “people” to do this for her. Now she laughs hysterically at her own joke. Ok back on track now folks sooooo where were we? ********************

Ok here we go; I have decided to reconstruct my blog  and considering the fact that I am in no way adept in the art of blog maintenance this may take a bit. I have never really been able to format this blog in accordance to how I see it in my head however, I am going to give it another go. setting up pages and static pages etc. is all so very confusing.

I will be starting this project today and keeping my fingers crossed that I end up with something halfway presentable. than you kindly for your patience.

The Fading Light Blurb. (book 2 in The Osipian Stories)

Hi Folks,

Just a quick update on book 2’s progress. After recently being released from the writer’s block demons I have been working away at getting book 2, The Fading Light done so that we can get it on the market before Spring’s end.

This book, the second in a series of five, (book 1 is The Orchid Keeper) can be read alone or you can read the first book before this one. Each book contains a storyline of its own …but they all do have common ties and references back to previous books.  I myself prefer to read a series of books in order but I know many to whom it doesn’t matter if the story is good alone.

Below you will find a little blurb about The fading Light, book 2 in The Osipian Stories. Below that blurb there will be links to my book pages that will take you to places that the Orchid Keeper can be purchased

THE FADING LIGHT >>Coming Soon

Get to know Cora and Sol from the very beginning of their journey’s together. Its my debut novel and has gotten great reviews thus far.

Marketing and Promotion Newbie.

My first book, The Orchid Keeper, was published July 1st 2014. My publisher is ABuzz Press and part of my contract is that I do my own marketing and promotion.

Well believe me when I say that as a new author my head did spend a few times in the beginning, and still does sometimes this many months later when it comes to promotion and marketing.

Being a complete novice when it comes to marketing I say that hands down two things were my saving grace. Without these two things I don’t think I would feel as good about where I’m at in the literary world as a new author as I do right now.

1.) All Abuzz Press authors are given a free copy of Angela and Richard Hoy’s ’90 Days of Promotion’. I advise that any new author read this. It is a wonderful way to get your ducks in a row in the beginning. As a guideline through the first 90 days of promoting your book I would rate it at ten!!

The advice, format, timeline, resources, etc given put forth in this wonderful marketing and promotion tool/guide truly helped me through a lot of what would have otherwise grayed my hair and had me running in the other direction. No joke!!! I seriously had no idea where to begin or what to do!!!

90 days of promotion is also offered for purchase even if you do not publish through ABuzz Press just visit

http://www.writers weekly.com/

Many of you may remember a previous post of mine about ‘Writers Weekly’ e-zine. Also a great author resource.

2.) Last week I joined the ‘Ask David’ community at, .

Book promotion is, in my opinion, this sites forte. The tools, links, exposure, and contact with readers and authors that are now available to me are phenomenal!

In the few days that I have had my book on thus particular site I have seen definitive improvement in my exposure. I am being exposed to 1,000’s of people. Both my personal blog and my authors blog have picked up followers via links on my books askdavid.com page. My debut book has made some sales as a direct result of Ask David.com. Via my books page on this site people can link straight into all if my websites and pages.

I am extremely satisfied with my choice to become a author member on this site. I would suggest it to any author asking my opinion!

Check it out you won’t regret it…

In closing, I give thanks for having the opportunity to utilize both if the above mentioned marketing and promotion resources. I also wish to vehemently recommend them to all authors who are responsible for thier own marketing. They have certainly helped me in so many different ways.

One great E-News magazine for Authors!!!

WITERS WEEKLY E-MAGAZINE (My personal review)

When it comes to writing news and opportunities one of the sources I rely heavily on is Writers Weekly. The resources they lead me to, the contests, the writing news and updates are rock solid and reliable. I came across this source when I began looking for writers resources and before I signed on with Abuzz Press.

This is a weekly published e-zine and I have greatly benefitted from all it has to offer each week. I have even won one of their weekly trivia contests. There is regular 24 hour writing contest that is prompted with a small five dollar entry fee…well worth it!!!

News on POD publishing, self publishing, publishing with both BookLocker, http://publishing.booklocker.com/, and Abuzz Press, http://www.abuzzpress.com/about-abuzz/.  (Abuzz is my own publisher, and I have had a great experience with them) As well as price comparisons for self publishing packages. They give great advice, offer a 90 days of promoting ebook, which in my opinion is a must have for all authors, agents seeking clients, and a plethora of wonderful tools, books, and insights for all writers…new and seasoned. Below you will find a link that will allow you see exactly why I suggest this particular e-zine for writers to you all.
