About this Writing Stuff...

By Your Side

We first delve into the bizarre as St. Martin's Press finds itself the recipient of an unusual package.  Kristine Kathryn Rusch addresses the belief that quality books are only found in traditional publishing.   A bit late on this news, but Random House has decided to stick it to libraries through eBook prices.  

Some thoughts on publicity and marketing from Crystal Patriarche and Jane Friedman.  Jody Hedlund provides insight into visibility for writers and Marie Lambda shares advice on blog tours.  Writers Digest offers some "How To's" to help us edit our novels and find writing time.  Finally, C. Hope Clark encourages us to write against the grain!

And congrats to friend and veteran fiction writer Michael Jan Friedman on the release of his latest eBook, a murder mystery set in a modern Aztec Empire:   Aztlan: The Last Sun.

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?
