Midwest Writers Conference

Midwest Writers Conference

It’s coming up October 6-8 2017!

Hey everyone, just letting you know – it’s time to start saving for the Midwest Writers Conference. It’s not been around as long as some but it’s building every year and this year they have some amazing guests (besides me *wink*).

I’m honored to be a Featured Guest speaker at the Midwest Writers Conference this year. I have a secret – thought most know me as a bestselling author – most don’t know I was an Acquisition Editor for awhile, and because of that I’ll be talking about How to catch the editors eye with your first paragraph. This will be an interactive class. Authors are being asked to bring the first pages of your manuscripts, so I can pick a few to look it over and use as demos in giving tips.

I will also be speaking about The importance of creating great secondary characters: Building your supporting cast, along with my bestselling author friend, scifi writer Kayelle Allen. She’ll also be speaking about Creating your series bible: Keeping characters straight and organization.

Our sexy RT model of the year (five years in a row) and actor John Joseph Quinlan will be there to spice things up with all the ladies. And erotic and romance author Dana Littlejohn will be there as well.

And there is an amazing opportunity to meet Dee Owens from Personalized Marketing Inc– who will be talking about Real Marketing in the Digital World: Social Networking Insanity, Figuring Out The Different Social Networks, Why Social Networking and …

A chapter out of my book ‘Secrets of Writing a Bestseller’ #ASMSG #MFRWauthor

@HoustonHavens secrets

Secrets of Writing a Bestseller

Today I’d like to share a Secret…on writing. When I was an unpublished writer all the published authors had a mantra: Show Don’t Tell. They said it so much, I felt like that was the only advice they had…and I was sick of it! First, that motto didn’t make sense to me – so I would be damned if I was going to follow such advice…yep, that’s me, a feisty Irish lass….a woman who walks her own path and will pay the price to walk it the way I please…thank you very much. And just so you know, I prefer to do a wee jig as I dance through me life – at least I can die saying – I did it my way…with a dance in me step.

It was then, as an unpublished writer when I decided to write a book called ‘Secrets On Writing A Bestseller’ and I set out to uncover those published authors’ secrets at getting published with every intent on telling each and every one of those secrets they guarded amongst themselves.

I’m not afraid of competition. I’m a firm believer there are plenty of readers to go around and share. No author has the same voice in telling a story, because our telling comes from our interests, beliefs, and slant on life and the subject in which the plot is taking place. No two beings have the same exact way of seeing things. NOT EVEN TWINS. …

Featured Author: Lindsay McKenna – Wind River Rancher #asmsg

WIND RIVER RANCHER by Lindsay McKenna

SHATTERED BUT STILL FIGHTING TO BE WHOLE ONCE MORE…

By Lindsay McKenna

www.lindsaymckenna.com

Wind River Rancher, Book 2, Wind River Valley series, is an emotional story that will suck every reader in. I’m known for gritty, visceral and emotional writing, and this book is no exception. It just happened to catch the eye of Publisher’s Weekly and it received a ‘starred’ review (like winning an Oscar) on 12.3.16.

This series I’m writing is about military vets returning home from combat from all over the world, mostly focused on the Middle East. Having been in the US Navy during the Vietnam War era (I served stateside as a weather forecaster at USNAS Moffett Field (now known as Silicon Valley) near San Francisco, California.

Book 1, Wind River Wrangler, the hero is an ex-Army Special Forces operator, Roan Taggart. He has left the Army with PTSD, no longer able to function at that high level any longer in black ops duties. He gets a job as a wrangler at the Wind River Ranch, where it’s quieter, it’s out in Nature and he is slowly healing from his internal PTSD wounds. Only, as life usually slaps us in the face, one way or another, he’s thrown back into a threat/life-and-death situation with Shiloh Gallagher, a writer from New York City. She’s escaped to the ranch to hide from a stalker who has torn her life apart. Figuring if she lives in Wyoming to write, her …

Horrifying Dangerous Black-Eyed Children #ASMSG #MFRWauthor

Horrifying Dangerous Black-Eyed Children #ASMSG #MFRWauthor @houstonhavens

It’s three in the morning and there’s an insistent knocking on your door. What do you do when you see there are two young black-eyed children on your porch?

The Indigo kids: who are they and what do they want? Why do they create such dread in us? They cause even the bravest of men FEAR and can bring the strongest man to tears in overwhelming TERROR.

Since 1998 Worldwide reports of young children, between the ages of five to eighteen, dressed in non-descriptive baggy clothes (most wearing hoodies) making long dreadful repeated knocking on your door after dark.

Despite your cat streaking across the room to hide in the closet and your dog suddenly trembling at the knocks, and an unexplainable foreboding that consumes you, you feel compelled to open the door. You find one or two children standing very still with their heads down as if looking at their feet.

You asks if they’re alright.

One of them speaks to you. Your gut twists when he speaks in a robotic monotone. Your gut screams something isn’t right. The strange child’s voice is that of a confident adult and he’s requesting YOU to let them into your house. The urge to slam the door is overwhelming, but the logic side of your brain is telling you to help the children. As if reading your thoughts, the child plays on your sympathy. Telling you they’re lost and are being followed.

“Let us into your home,” the child says ending his statement …
