We've all hit slumps in our writing from time to time, we just cannot get the words on paper, or not everything we write reads as we want it to. Often when this happens, it means we need to take a step back from our writing and find another activity that will help our racing mind. For me that activity is often yoga. These are my favorite three yoga asanas or poses that help me to write better and more productively.

Burnout is something we all suffer from as authors from time to time. We have a new book out and we’re trying to market it, and write the next book at the same time, maybe we have a day job as well. Trying to do too much can easily lead to author burnout. It’s hard to write the next story if you’re worried about your child being bullied at schoo,l and the fact you don’t have much time to blog or promote your current release.

If you’re an author and you’re serious about writing, then chances are you are spending a lot of time in front of a computer, and on your smart phone, or tablet.

with readers and promoting their books for years to come. Not all social media sites are created equal. While you houldn’t overlook any social media site, as an author there is such a thing as stretching yourself too thin. The idea then is to find up to three social media sites to use to share your book information, events and other fun stuff and then to use them exclusively. Here are my top three social media sites.

Most of us that love m/m romance, have to wonder when we read about gay Romans and other historical figures how their worlds viewed homosexuality. Well, wonder no more, because historians have a relatively good handle on how the Roman world viewed homosexuality, and it’s not exactly what you might think.
