About this Writing Stuff...

By Your Side
Happy Valentine's Day!
A slightly abbreviated list this week as I am buried in work and getting ready for Farpoint.  Among today's selections, Joe Konrath vows that Amazon will destroy you.  Dean Wesley Smith reviews the cost of indie production while Jody Hedlund discusses the importance of book covers in this digital age.  From Writer Unboxed, Ann Aguirre asks what makes books magical and Joanne Baggot advises us to just breathe.   PC Magazine accuses self publishers of overloading eBooks with porn. I found PC Mag's article to be an insulting blanket statement and biased against self publishers, but that's just my not so humble opinion.

On lighter notes, Harlan Ellison makes an appearance to discuss...well...anything.  And a slightly belated congratulations to Kelly Meding on the release of the fourth book in her Dreg City series!

BY YOUR SIDE (March 2013)
You're all alone here, alone among the dead.

While haunted by visions of her brother's suicide,
psychic-medium Miranda Lorensen is called to Lancaster, Pennsylvania to investigate a series of bizarre deaths—some of which are also suicides. Miranda and her team of paranormal investigators quickly find themselves confronted by a vengeful spirit awakened thirty-three years after a bloody family tragedy. Miranda realizes that only she can stop the entity before it claims its final victims, but will her obsession for saving lives redeem her for the brother she failed?

A paranormal tale of child abuse and redemption.

Daniel Masenda thought he had made peace with his dark past when he left his home for a better life fourteen years ago. As the mayor of a small, tranquil town along Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Daniel has everything he ever wanted - until a series of haunting visions, coupled with the death of his estranged mother, pits him against two ghostly entities at war with one another. Each has its own agenda as they force Daniel to relive moments from his violent youth and push him to the edge of insanity. As his idyllic life begins to unravel, will he be able to decipher the message behind the hauntings before they destroy, not only him, but the soul of someone he left behind?
