Archiving Feature

I’ve spent the last week trying to get the archive paths fixed so they would show up. Of course, I’m not one to let anything ‘beat me’ so – its fixed! LOL It took me a while, but I finally got it right. So – now you can read ‘past post’ via the ‘archive’ link on the left. Not that there’s anything of interest there, but I hate broken links.

Writers Workshop

Been participating in a writers workshop through Romance Divas. Its a ‘Fast Draft’ workshop and – I’m not sure how well I’ll do, but I’m going to give it a shot. I’m suppose to write 20 pages a day…which should take me 2 hours, in 20 minute increments. Supposedly – I should be able to get a first draft of my novel in 2-weeks. Granted, you can’t make ANY changes, not even typos, until you’re finished. That will be the hardest part for me. I’m forever rewriting – as I’m writing. lol Just typing and letting everything go will be … Continue reading

New Layout

Re-did the layout again. I really like this one. Took me forever to figure out how to add links to it. They still don’t look like the others – but they’re there! Thats all that matters, I suppose. I have 3 blogs. Anyone else have 3? lol Didn’t think so. Each one has a specific feature I like. If I could roll them all up together – I’d have the perfect blog. *sigh* Now if I could just decided WHICH of the 3 I want to use all the time. Of course I post on all three because I don’t … Continue reading

Promoting & Opening Hooks

So, its quite apparent to me, that I lack what it takes to properly promote my book – and myself. I’ve been given a handfull of sites, provided by the lovely Gayle Eden and I either can’t navigate them or lack the knowledge to do what I need to, once I find what I’m looking for. Most of the sites I just sit and stare at – lost as to what to do. I have a new book out and yet, only a handfull of people know about it. I thought the hard part was actually editing the darn thing! … Continue reading

The First Review is in…

A Touch of Heaven Lily GraisonContemporary Erotic RomanceAvailable from Linden Bay RomanceISBN: 1-905393-18-0September 2005 From the moment Colin Gregory had Paige smile at him in high school, he fell head over heels in love with her. He wrote her poetry and looked at her longingly. Paige was one of the “in crowd,” always trying to get along, never leading, only following whatever her girlfriends said and did. Colin was a gangly geek with glasses that everyone made fun of. Paige ended up breaking Colin’s heart and spirit at school one day. From that moment on, he never again wrote her … Continue reading

Why is it never easy?

I’ve been working on the plot for a short story and I can’t seem to find that ONE tiny piece that will pull the whole thing together. I know the when, the why, the how, but I can’t figure out the ‘what’ that pulls the ending together. I have several ideas, but I keep running around in circles for some reason. I’m lost. Its the key to the whole thing and without it, it won’t work at all. I usually suffer through the ‘title’ phase for days, but of course, that came easy this time. Figures. I guess if I … Continue reading

Novel Changes

I’ve been changing things in the novel again. A name change was in order. I won’t go into details as to why though, but I think it was for the best. Now – as I think of this character, I see him differntly. I see him as being ‘more’ than what he was. Before, with the name I had given him, he was somehow – softer. Now I don’t feel that way. I feel as though it was a good thing. He’ll be more of what I had invisioned. All material &copy2005-2012 to Lily Graison

Finally a break

I finished my rewrites of the soon to be known “A Touch of Heaven”. I’m sure there is more editing to be done, but it won’t be as hard as actually converting the story the way I have. I’m already looking at my other stories to see if any of them are worth converting. I can only think of one, though. At least now I can finally get back to the novel. I’ve missed working on it. And so has Meg. LOL All material &copy2005-2012 to Lily Graison
