Pure Sacrifice, my second full-length novel releases today! Yay!

This one features a virgin hero (who's a shapeshifting unicorn). Too bad the heroine is determined to seduce him. ;)

Yay! Treasured Claim, my debut novel is out!

She's a dragon shifter with a taste for stealing jewels, and he's a billionaire who catches her with a stolen necklace. ;)

Hey everyone! I know many of my friends fall into the "I want to self-publish but I don't have the money to do it well" category, so when I saw this, I thought of you. :D

I haven't gone through this class yet, so I can't speak to its methods, but I've been happy with Holly Lisle's classes before. She currently has this class on sale too! :)

If you go through this class, let me know how it is! :D

One of my favorite aspects of writing is discovering who my characters are. Drafting by the seat of my pants is like meeting a new friend as I first get to know them.

I especially loved playing with my characters in my latest release, Ironclad Devotion. The heroine is a motorcycle-riding faerie princess (yes, really!), and the hero is a cowboy blacksmith.

(Hmm, don't blacksmiths work with iron, and iron is bad for faeries? Could be trouble... ;) )

Write romance? Use Scrivener? Check out this Scrivener template set up for the beats of my popular Romance Beat Sheet. :)

One of my most popular posts is for my Romance Beat Sheet, but one of my readers asked if I could create a Scrivener template to go along with the Romance Beat Sheet. Yes! If you're a romance author and use Scrivener for drafting your stories, today's post is for you.

Fantastic new resource! If you like my beat sheets but need examples to understand how they work, check out +K.M. Weiland's new Story Structure Database.

She breaks down books and movies to their beats. Most of the entries line up with the same beats as in my Basic Beat Sheet (http://jamigold.com/worksheets), so you can take what you learn from the examples and apply it to your own story. :)

Ah, awesome! I hope you'll contribute a few analyses, Jami! And thanks for the shout out.

Yeeks! Have you heard of Amazon Scout? That's their crowdsourced publishing experiment.

If you're chosen, you get a somewhat traditional publisher contract--but with NO editing, cover, etc. Oh, and the contract is non-negotiable.

So what, exactly, would they be doing for their 50% cut? I'm calling this a "do not submit" recommendation. :/

+Jami Gold I agree. Always avoid the non-negotiable contract, no matter who it's made with.

Do You Have a Business Plan?

If not, the latest worksheet I added to the collection on my blog might help. :)

#writing   #businessplan
No one will ever care about our success as much as we do. That’s why—even though we’re writers—we should think of ourselves, at least on some level, as business people. Not all of us have a business mindset, however. We might […]

Following on from your post on Motivation, I think having a business plan is a FABULOUS motivator. Once we know where we're headed there's no need to get lost in procrastination, wondering what to do next.
Thank you, Jami. :)

Introduction
Author of Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Stories

After nursing a Pegasus back to health, 
Jami Gold moved to Arizona and decided to become a writer, where she could put her talent for making up stuff to good use. Fortunately, her muse, an arrogant male who delights in causing her to sound as insane as possible, rewards her with unique and rich story ideas.

Fueled by chocolate, she writes paranormal romance and urban fantasy tales that range from dark to humorous, but one thing remains the same: Normal need not apply. Just ask her family—and zombie cat.
