Meanwhile…at my computer… National Novel Writing Month compels me to write at least 50,000 words. For the past five years, I’ve attempted to accomplish this feat before Thanksgiving. Since the first …

Enter an alternate Kindle World. I did.

Today is the day. I’ve crossed over and become a “fan fiction” author. Or so Amazon wants to say. That’s the premise behind Kindle Worlds. I prefer to say, “Today is my Christian romance publishing debut.” I’ve been talking about it for a few months now. And today, it will be all over Amazon when …
