  • Packaging by Kathryn Flatt 10/17/2013 8:03:55 AM
    Another library I contacted replied that they would like to receive one of my books and perhaps arrange a personal appearance. While I've done a little public speaking in the past, this would be the first time for me to be the "star." I'll probably h... more

  • Meanwhile, Back at the Manor... by Kathryn Flatt 10/16/2013 6:49:34 AM
    Doing some work on "Treasure of Mongan Manor" this morning, feeling my way through introductions to the people who live in or are visiting the manor. I don't want to bring in too many people at once, though, because that can be confusing to the reade... more

  • The Promotion Engine, etc. by Kathryn Flatt 10/15/2013 6:34:12 AM
    Last week, I sent letters and book brochures to six libraries near me, offering them a choice of a free book as well as my willingness to join in book fairs or meet with book clubs. I received one very nice response expressing interest in my offer of... more

  • I Know I Shouldn't But... by Kathryn Flatt 10/14/2013 7:08:16 AM
    Had a great idea for "Where Power Lies" over the weekend. In earlier posts, I wrestled with the issue of back story, how to present to the reader what my character already knows about the future world she lives in. The current manuscript contains a l... more

  • Progress! by Kathryn Flatt 10/10/2013 6:36:40 AM
    This morning, I prepared mailings to some local libraries, offering the a free book as well as my availability for events. I'll be dropping those at the post office this afternoon, and then I'll see where it goes. Making HUGH progress on "T... more

  • The Quest for Perfection by Kathryn Flatt 10/7/2013 6:29:36 AM
    Reading "Where Power Lies" from the back to the front this morning, and doing this way does seem to help me find things. I've also had a few snippets of ideas occur to me at odd moments during the weekend, just details to tweak the setting a bit. I a... more

  • Word Pictures by Kathryn Flatt 10/4/2013 9:19:33 AM
    Working on "Treasure of Mongan Manor" today, and it's such fun describing the images I have in my head about the title residence. When I left off yesterday, Stefanie was still a day away from her trip into the Wisconsin countryside, and I wasn't sure... more

  • Trying to Stay Focused by Kathryn Flatt 10/3/2013 6:39:02 AM
    While "Where Power Lies" sits waiting for another proofreading, I've decided to concentrate for the rest of the week on "The Treasure of Mongan Manor," where things are heating up. I'm in the easy-flow stages of this one, where the ideas keep coming ... more

  • Moving Forward by Kathryn Flatt 10/2/2013 8:17:40 AM
    After a few days of hiatus from writing, I'm back on it today and moving forward on "The Treasure of Mongan Manor," volume 3 of the Windsong Lake books. I'm about to get into the real meat of the story, and I've had some good ideas about one sequence... more

  • The Blahs by Kathryn Flatt 10/1/2013 10:23:23 AM
    Been a bit under the weather lately and just not in the mood to work on anything much. It happens sometimes. Bookfest 2013 is over and done. I didn't sell a single book, although I saw other authors all around me selling theirs. I'm now doi... more

  • Plot Change Already? by Kathryn Flatt 9/27/2013 6:08:39 AM
    All ready for Bookfest tomorrow, apart from getting some small bills for change. This morning, I printed more business cards, a couple more brochures, and some signs. I packed up books and got all my paraphernalia together, ready to go. I will be in ... more

  • Fun Stuff by Kathryn Flatt 9/26/2013 6:26:28 AM
    "Where Power Lies" got its final trim and is now just under 80,000 words. It'll take another proofreading before I consider it done, though. All that cutting could have created more errors. I'll attack that after another rest period. Making ... more

  • Busy, Busy by Kathryn Flatt 9/25/2013 6:56:38 AM
    I spent some time this morning making up brochures for Bookfest this weekend. I made 15 so far and may make some more. While those were printing up, I got back onto some plotting for the new Windsong Lake book. I knew that Stefanie would be ... more

  • Another Milestone by Kathryn Flatt 9/23/2013 6:21:24 AM
    This morning, I wrote a first draft of a synopsis for "Where Power Lies." How to tell the same story on two double-spaced pages that I used 82,000 words for to begin with? Surprisingly, the more I do this exercise, the easier it gets. I may continue ... more
