The Best Books You Never Read

By S J Brown The world is filled with unfinished manuscripts. They are stuffed in drawers, stored in a computer file, or sitting on a desktop waiting to be completed. Many years ago I joined a writers group. I admit some members were working on works that apparently weren’t that memorable since I don’t remember … Continue reading The Best Books You Never Read

The Princess is here – what’s next?

It feels like it took forever to get The Princess Prophecy out into the world. From the idea to it finally being live was almost three years. And it's not a long book. Procrastination isn't my middle name for no reason. Of course it was the fear that made me do other things instead of … Continue reading The Princess is here – what’s next?

Countdown to a prophecy

My first step to starting the year right was to send my book to my editor. After a nail-biting week I received the file back and to my relief she liked it. There weren’t major changes and the story was pretty solid. I accepted the grammar changes and fleshed out scenes she thought needed a … Continue reading Countdown to a prophecy

Mission accomplished – Sort of

The key to having a successful year in 2018 meant I had to start the year off right. I hung out with my husband and our cat. It was low key. Partiers we are not. We watched TV, had a drink, and totally missed that it was the New Year until six minutes after the … Continue reading Mission accomplished – Sort of

Back in October 2016 I posted about a Supernatural Dream Come True. I was finally going to meet the stars of the show I'd watched for over a decade. When I initially purchased the ticket I went gold because I figured it would be the only chance I had to go to one. At the … Continue reading A Supernatural Follow up

By S. J. Brown I borrowed the name for this month’s blog from a band. They are a country music band and although I am not a fan of country music I somehow ended up with one of their shirts. I have had it long enough it might be considered a vintage t-shirt. The shirt … Continue reading Southbond

Next Stop Home

By S. J. Brown I hope everyone enjoyed their summer as much as I did. I was on the road a lot, but by choice not necessity. In early June I attended the WV Writers conference. As always it was an energizing three days. I attended a number of workshops, conversed with friends on the … Continue reading Next Stop Home

Six Nights, Six Beds

Earlier this month my husband and I went to WorldCon75. The World Science Fiction convention happens every year, in a different city. This year it was in Helsinki. We’d planned it a year ahead of time because we were super excited to be finally going to Finland. Since my brother-in-law lives in England we decided … Continue reading Six Nights, Six Beds

Team Work

By S. J. Brown  Like many writers I am a bit of a loner.  I can easily spend large blocks of time alone and be quite content.  I also find that being part of a team can be very rewarding. I was recently part of a team of a few dozen people that gathered together … Continue reading Team Work
