Mix a little U.S. history with Star Wars fever, and you get... :)

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... ;) )

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. ;)

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. :)

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

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. :/
