Here's a post I wrote about the research I did for my latest story, Stone-Cold Heart, and about how even if authors have the facts right, readers still might not believe us.

To overcome that problem, I'm sharing insights from my experience for how to help readers believe our premise. :)

Research is part of every story I write, and that was especially true of my latest story, Stone-Cold Heart. The heroine, Raquel, is a spitfire who doesn't take any crap from the hero, and with her military background, she has the strength to stand up to this indestructible gargoyle. :)

Raquel's character was inspired by the Army's Cultural Support Teams (a squishy name for fierce female soldiers who served side-by-side with special operations teams in combat situations). Want to learn more about these amazing warriors and check out this story with touches of Beauty and the Beast? Go to http://jamigold.com/sch

In addition to information about the book, I've also included several links and videos about these CST heroes. :D

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. ;)

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. :)
