There have been some interesting developments in my writing career, among which the fact I’m now Editor-in-chief for Azure Fire Publishing (AFP), a US-based non-profit promoting youth-friendly Fantasy and Science Fiction.
Even though the position only offers a nominal fee at the moment, it comes with a perk: AFP has offered to publish my Fantasy/Science Fiction books.
The organization has a large monthly advertising budget to promote its authors’ books, so, after much deliberation, I have decided to accept.
My Books’ Titles
Perhaps, then, this is the perfect opportunity to deal with something that’s been bugging me for a while now: my first books’ titles. I find myself no longer satisfied by “Rise of the Prince” and “The Power of Six,” as I think of them as weak titles compared to my later ones. And since AFP will soon handle these…
Thank you very much Story Reading Ape, for mentioning my name when publishing this amazing tribute to women. It’s unique and it touches my heart and I’m sure the hearts of many others too. You’re a gem!
When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day…….
An angel came by and asked.” Why spend so much time on her?”
The lord answered. “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?”
●She must function on all kinds of situations. ●She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time. ●Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart. ●She must do all this with only two hands. ●She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day.
The Angel was impressed” Just two hands…..impossible!
…an Idiot Author’s Guide to waiting for Editorialcomment… from my terrific pal, Authoress, Susan Toy…
10 Ways I pass the time while waiting for my editor to finish editing my novel …
by Susan M. Toy
It took about 12 years to complete a final draft of my second novel, a draft I felt was finally ready to send to my most trusted first reader—my editor.
You’d think after all the time the file has sat in four computers and various memory sticks during all those years, sometimes never seeing the light of day, I’d have embraced patience and would now be willing to allow for whatever further time was necessary to complete the editing process. After all, I know that it does take a great deal of time and concentration to complete the stellar and most thorough job my editor is currently doing.

I am in fact a natural blonde.
I love reading and found out that there are amazing indie authors out there.
I enjoy playing little practical jokes, but make sure nobody will ever be hurt or humiliated, I want to make people laugh, not cry.
There are moments I’m that deep inside my story I have a hard time focusing after my return into the real world.
Whenever I have time, I listen to the sound of nature. It takes me back to the important things.
The past two weeks I have been working intensely on my blog. I was trying to find useful posts for writers, I was writing my poems, I am at the moment working on another guest post. I am reading as many blogs of writers as I can, to learn and profit from their experiences. I read amazing bloggers, authors and writers, believe me!
