WELCOME TO HONEY CREEK

Honey Creek, Ohio is a place where anything can happen. Nestled in the lush green of rolling Midwestern hills, crops, combines and crows pepper the landscape, but inside Honey Creek there’s a whole lot of mischief going on.

In January 2012, my debut novella, Bloom, will launch the Honey Creek line forTurquoise Morning Press. I’m planting Seeds of Lovein Honey Creek.

The Seeds of Love series will be sprinkled throughout the year.

I hope you’ll drop in and enjoy the bouquet.

Bloom by Julie Anne Lindsey

In a town filled with her past, she never expected to find her future…

Seven years ago Cynthia left Honey Creek with a broken heart. Three years ago Mitchell arrived with one.  Now Cynthia’s come home, and these two hardened hearts can’t stop arguing. If they’d only take a break long enough to find some common ground, they might be surprised to find love can grow anywhere.

If they’ll let it, love will find a way to Bloom.
Available now on Amazon!

Feature Friday Presents: The Most Intimate Wish

The Most Intimate Wish by F.L. Bicknell

All she wants is a husband and family. All they need is for her to believe.

When Dinah and Jeff move in to be the Wheillercarts’ companions, their lives change for the better and the worse. Dinah loves Jeff, but after five years together, he still refuses to marry her, and Dinah’s dreams of starting a family begin to crumble. Regardless of their hot lovemaking sessions, she fears Jeff is cheating on her. Dinah will do anything to keep Jeff, even if it means sharing him with another woman.

However, strange occurrences and a seemingly psychic landlady keep Dinah guessing about her life and relationship with Jeff. And what about the bizarre statue in their landlady’s atrium? Little does Dinah know it holds the key to her most intimate wish.

Writers Afraid of Their Own Voice? What?

I got an interesting message from someone on twitter the other day. Daniel Ford was preparing for an article about writers afraid of their own voice.

Side story: I’ve had some technical issues…my laptop DIED with a captial CRASH about 10 days ago. I waited a week to buy a new one because I kept up hope there was something redeemable on there. There wasn’t. It’s gone. Won’t turn on. It’s a brick.

So, I got a new laptop and started alllllll over again. 24 hours later high winds took out my Internet for a day or two LOL Leaving me to typo the snot out of a crap-ton of tweets and emails. Meanwhile…

Daniel got his article written and up and running. It’s a really good and insightful article and you can find it here on Engage the Blog.

I thought for the sake of a longer blog post (LOL I’m still playing catch-up) I’d add my full commentary here on why writers should not be afraid of their voice in writing. In regards to fearing your voice I said….

Don’t.

I firmly believe writing is more of a calling than anything else. As writers, we are passionate and driven to create. To fear that is to miss the point completely. Imagine your favorite tome. What if you had the same idea and had written that book instead of the author who captivated you with the tale? I guarantee the story wouldn’t have been the same. This is true because writers are uniquely gifted with perspective and experience that color our worlds and our words. Our individual voice sets the tone and guides the direction each story will take. No two authors will ever write the same story, even if they begin with the same concept. That’s the beauty of what we do. Writing is more than a skill, it’s an art and a lifestyle. Fearing your voice as a writer is like an artist fearing their medium, a painter avoiding his paint, a pianist afraid to play. I believe to be truly great at anything, we must be willing to dive in, lose ourselves in the wake and cast abandon aside. Don’t fear your gift. Treasure it. Your voice gives your story its passion and edge and bite. Voice should be embraced because its what makes you — you. Makes your stories yours. It’s the signature signed with your heart.

I think it’s natural to struggle with self doubt and insecurities, especially when we face new things. But, I also know there’s no surer way to fail yourself or lose your dream than to try to harness it. Don’t shove it into a box or make apologies for it. This is your dream and you are specially gifted to achieve it. Rest in the assurance that no one can tell your story but you.  

Who else has some encouraging thoughts for other aspiring authors out there? What do we do when we look at all the incredible books in print today and think….I can’t do it! I won’t measure up!

DO tell :)
