7 Tips for Newbie Writers

billboardHere’s seven of the many tips and tru’isms I learned from doing online seminars techies call webinars. It’s no secret. I love doing them.
Webinars are my go-to resource for how-to information, writing tips, marketing & selling, and navigating the bumpy road of formatting manuscripts for Amazon Kindle.
We all have to start somewhere. I’m a bona-fide newbie writer of modern day romance. Webinars encouraged, and gave me confidence to take the next step…and the one after that.
Have you got any writing, marketing, or inspiring tips to share? Please do.
Just to let you know…the most difficult thing about writing this blog was aligning the text on the billboard. It still looks wonky! (epic fail…:)

Book Review. 4 Stars – Crypt of Souls. Author K A Krisko.

4 star reviewCrypt of SoulsCrypt of Souls
Author: K A Krisko
Reviewer: Magdalena VandenBerg
Genre: Fantasy

This book is definitely worthy of 4.5 stars.
K A Krisko’s Crypt of Souls is the second book in the trilogy series, and it’s an outstanding read sure to bring a twisted smile to her die-fans, and satisfy any new reader in need of a dark fantasy fix.
Hand on heart I must say again fantasy is not my preferred genre. But who cares? K A Krisko had me hooked from page one. Having read her first book, Stolen, it was great to be reunited with characters I know and care about. To name only two, the enigmatic Rioletta, and Cardon, a sensitive soul, and one I have a real soft spot for.
It’s fair to add here, I’d recommend reading Stolen first before diving into Crypt of Souls.
With only a few remnants of tree foliage adorning his body, Stolen is slowly feeling more at home with his Andolith family. However still burdened by the shadow of the mistakes of his past (no spoiler here!) he feels the citizens of Andolith will never fully forget, nor forgive him of his sins. This is something only he can reconcile.
Cardon is suffering terribly – I’m sorry I’m not at liberty to divulge more. Rioletta, along with Stolen and Nikal decide to journey to Polebray for the 100th anniversary of the Dispersal celebration, and to find a cure to help ease Cardon’s pain.
Here we are introduced to Hyphanden, the leader of the Outcast Council, and other members all with intoxicating names. They all have knowledge, and in some cases access to the use of forbidden skills. The forbidden flies in the face of those bound by the rigidity of the traditional skills as decreed in the one hundred year old charter.
From Polebray, Rioletta and her Andolith family, and Hyphanden and other Outcasts journey to the Ruined City.
Here K A Krisko’s Crypt of Souls takes a dark twisted macabre turn for the better.
By now Cardon is delirious and on the verge of a total breakdown. And it’s not from drinking too much wine or beer.
Deep within the Forbidden City lies a hidden vault – the Crypt of Souls. Four minds are trapped alive and well within their lifeless bodies.
Can the Traditional Sorcerer’s trust the Outcast Council to help them accomplish their mission to rescue the minds from their entrapment? Why are other sinister forces trying to sabotage the mission?
As if this isn’t enough, the cunning Lefollah, including the pesky leaves, expose their devious intentions to cause the maximum amount of havoc and harm to unsettle Rioletta and Stolen. Omnipresent you get the creepy feeling the Lefollah are always watching and waiting.
K A Krisko has a fantastical gift when describing the different magical Skills. Clever, and descriptive she draws you into the real power of each skill. I particularly loved the animation skill, there are many more and each is important in building the purpose of the characters.
So, why not five stars?
For me to dish out a whopping five stars the book must be a riveting page-turner. I truly felt the first half of Crypt of Souls was five star worthy. However, it was around the middle of the story I lost my way a little.
With so many characters, Skills, and story layers it was difficult for me to keep up. I’m not sure if this is in part due to my inexperience in the fantasy genre, but either way there was so much going on the words began to blend on the page.
At this point I think the book could have benefited from adding more description to the characters and the events. Some of the scenes deserved to have their own chapter.
That said Crypt of Souls is really well crafted, and bravo to the imaginative Skill of Author K A Kristo.
Imagine knowing your heartbeat has been eternally silenced yet your mind remains trapped…Dark and disturbing K A Krisko’s fantasy will not disappoint. You’ll be sending the author mind messages begging her to finish the final book of the trilogy.

Amazon Book Review. Love in the Vines 4 Stars. Amazing!

Happy New Year! Watch out world, 2013 here we come…
This morning was cause for a double celebration.
New Year’s Day, and a fabulous FOUR STAR REVIEW by Katrina Joyner of Love in the Vines on Amazon.
I’m really grateful of Katrina’s time to read and review my book, and I’m chuffed with her comments, and constructive feedback.

4 star reviewLove in the Vines Cover Master 72Review of Love in the Vines by Katrina J Joyner

Love in the Vines is about a married woman, Carla, who takes a job at a winery. It’s a new and lush world for her; a fruity opportunity that also brings in a new man in her life: Matt. He’s single-minded and handsome, and he quickly finds himself very attracted to the new girl. When she responds favorably, it becomes love in the vines. And some other places as well.
The author makes no secret on what’s going to happen between these two lovebirds. A discerning eye knows what’s coming by chapter 2. No clumsy attempts at mystery in this book. It’s not knowing or not knowing the end that matters. It’s how the story is told, and this story is told through the making of wine. The subject is obviously well-researched, which only makes the main backdrop of a winery a bit more believable. You are thrown into wine-making as the main character is, learning things as she learns them, and experiencing her marvel and discovery of her natural talent with her.

Book Review. 4 Stars. Campaign Zen. Author Peter Prasad.

4 star reviewPeter PrasadCampaign ZenGenre: American History, Politics, and Very Clever Writing (is there a category for this?)
“THE ART OF CAMPAIGN ZEN”
Reviewer:
Magdalena VandenBerg

Right. Where to start?

Campaign Zen draws you into the world of the American history and politics in a way you’ve probably never experienced before. I certainly hadn’t.

This isn’t your standard textbook dry as a bone snooze fest of a history lesson. Quite the contrary, reading Prasad’s Campaign Zen is like eating a bowl of chocolate ice cream with dollops of wasabi mustard. Heston Blumenthal, could create something deliciously tasty out of this unusual combination, Prasad would too.

Unusual, and like something you’ve never read before you’ll either love Campaign Zen, or take one bite, and think this isn’t for me. But note, interestingly you do have to eat a least 27 mouthfuls, that’s 27 pages, before you reach the table of contents. I’m not sure why the writer used this strategy, but I digress.

While reading Campaign Zen, I did ponder the question, is this book out of reach, or interest for those not entrenched, or directly affected by the American political system, and all its shenanigans? Or, where will Campaign Zen sit for those of us who have a tepid interest in history dating back to the Romans, Colonials, Brits, Dutch, Irish…the first Americans?

As a New Zealander living a good twelve-hour plane ride from the West Coast of America, I didn’t feel this book was out of my league subject wise. Regardless of my intrigue in the politics of Republicans and Democratic politics, and the vast sums of money it takes to fuel American political campaigns – Prasad’s Campaign Zen is pure gold for anyone interested in American history and politics told in a highly entertaining and creative poetic way.

While reading Campaign Zen a little voice kept growing louder inside my head. What started as a whisper ended as a declaration, this guy is a modern day Shakespeare! Now as wiki states Shakespeare is widely regards “the greatest writer in the English language,” please don’t all gasp at once – it’s Prasad’s brilliant turn of phrase, wit, and a reverence to the bizarre to emphasise a point that left me brimming with admiration, and also slightly muddled because my brain runs at a speed slower and was desperately trying to keep up with the genius of the creative flow.

At times there was too much witty repartee going on, I had to take a break and go and do something completely inane to clear my stuffed and exhausted brain of all the Prasad’isms.

Campaign Zen is that kind of book. A work of art, worthy of respect and admiration not only for its political and historical content, but also for the way Campaign Zen is constructed. Prasad’s unique writing style and use of “doggerel” …”comic verse composed in irregular rhythm” left me whirling at what it must be like to be him when he’s hyped up in that creative moment.

If someone were to test me on the in’s and out’s of Campaign Zen I’d flunk. Only because there is so much information told in a highly descriptive, entertaining, and usual way, I just couldn’t keep up with Prasad’s brilliant mind. I know Stephen Fry could.

So, why didn’t I escalate from 4 to 5 stars? I liked, admired, respected, and was highly amused by Campaign Zen. I also found it slightly irritating, and annoying. And, its not you it’s me…I just didn’t fall in love with it. But that’s art for you. Prasad’s Campaign Zen is political, historical, written in a highly clever style, and its driven by a passion to get people motivated to vote. After reading Campaign Zen you’ll want a drink, and more importantly you’ll never want to waste your right to vote. Prasad tells us why your vote, and every vote is a salute to freedom and democracy.

First Draft Edit. Five Things to Ponder.

A worn down building in Mexico sporting a "For Rent" notice in spanish.Oh, the joys of reading through the first draft of your next book.
It’s a little like looking through a dilapidated old fixer upper of a house, then laying out your hard-earned dosh (that’s kiwi speak for dollars) to buy it, before kissing goodbye the next chunk of your life to the mistress of renovations.
Despite some seriously cringe-worthy moments of “did I really write that” – the first draft of my NaNoWriMo inspired “Love Entwined” is not what I would call truly awful. But, there is no denying, it is definitely in need of a truck load of love and attention.
That’s my way of saying it needs work. And lots of it.
Turning the pages, I find myself thinking…“well, the bones of the story is there – yep at least it’s got good bones.”
How many times have you heard a designer, architect or a “move that bus” TV guy talk about the good bones theory? For some reason, if a house, castle, shed, or whatever else is left standing, isn’t derelict and destined for doomsville, it’s all down to its “good bones.”
With that theory in mind, there is hope for my first draft.
It doesn’t need to be knocked down, totally demolished, and rebuilt into a fantastically spectacular book. Rather, it’s crying out for a good old-fashioned dose of lots of hard out editing work.
With careful and constructive renovations, along with what I hope could only be termed creative flair, the good bones will get meat on them while morphing into a story worth telling. And worthy of my reader’s valuable outlay and time.
Along with the never ending search for spelling mistakes, here’s a list of the top five things I’m paying particular attention to while reading/editing my way through the first draft of Love Entwined.

  1. The Characters. Their development, and the cultivation of their personalities and roles, along with their introduction into the story.
  2. Two timing adjectives. To quote The View Outside blog “they don’t need to travel around in pairs.”
  3. Stripping and peeling back the scenes and dialogue to get to the heart of the matter. That’s a nice way of saying “less is more.” Cut, slash, and toss out what’s not needed.
  4. Emotional connection. Does the emotion and tension resonate and strike a chord without going overboard and sounding too cheesy?
  5. Pace. Is the story crawling along at a snail’s pace, or is it sprinting faster than Usain Bolt blitz’s the 100m?

Magdalena’s e-book Love in the Vines is now available on Amazon Kindle. Love Entwined is the sequel, and is due out early-mid 2013.
Love in the Vines
is a contemporary romance novel set in the intoxicating world of wine and food. Food, wine, love and betrayal. Like wine, love begins in the vines. Betrayal begins in the heart of a marriage.

 

A Sunday Morning Run Kiwi Style

Sure there was some sweat, or do I glow? But, the breathtaking views along my 11km run screamed, “oh WOW look at me.”
See Linda Evangelista – the beauty of life is worth getting out of bed for…. ok I’ve got to be honest, a whopping $10,000 bucks would do it too.
Enjoy your Sunday. Bon Domenica.

LOVE IN THE VINES “a fast-moving, sexy story. You will enjoy reading it. You’ll be asking for a sequel!” 4* Amazon Review

Building Characters we like, love, loathe, and detest.

man textAbout a year ago, I began a long lasting relationship with my keyboard. Before I locked myself in a room for days on end, I debated over whether to go back to school to learn what it takes, and means to be a writer. Or, to dive head first into the deep-end of the word pool, and to well, start writing.
Being a bit of a doer, I reasoned I’d be happier, and would learn more by getting stuck in and doing.
Choosing the latter, I’ve shown up every day to write my blogs, and e-books. Note here, I’m not counting as writing facebook posts as legit writing! So far the word count is shooting into the 150,000 stratosphere – admittedly I’m probably the only one impressed by this….
By diving write in (yes, that was intentional!) I’ve been busy writing. LOVE IN THE VINES my first contemporary romance has been written, published, and is available in all e-book formats. And, thanks to the inspirational NaNoWriMo challenge of writing 50,000 words in 30 days during the month of November, the first draft of Love Entwined, the sequel to Love in the Vines, has been written.
At this stage I’m a one stop shop – writer, indie publisher, marketer, distributor, PR person, web designer, social media specialist, blogger, cat lady in training, runner, and wine drinker. Everything I didn’t know, and needed to know is only ever a click away. I’m constantly blown away by the amount of online information available – the wealth and depth of it is staggering, and mostly free.
Of late, I’ve been researching about character development, as no matter what genre you’re writing, building credible believable characters is the lifeblood of fiction.
I want to learn tips, and tools to dig deeper and get my hand dirty to create, and nurture the characters I write.

  • What can I do as a writer to invest more into the DNA of my characters?
  • How can I dig deeper to really get to know them, as well as I know myself?
  • What is at the heart of their emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, quirks, likes, and dislikes?
  • What drives their passions?
  • What is it about them that makes them unique, and memorable? Is it the way they walk, their habits, or silence…
  • What’s the twitter sound bite you would use to describe one of your characters? Remember – there’s a 140 character limit!
  • And, the probing goes on, until I guess I have a character dossier that tells me more than the questions found on a consensus form.
  • Unveiling their strengths, flaws, weaknesses, mistakes, sorrow, joy, motives and manipulations builds them into characters to like, love, loathe, detest, or feel only pity and indifference.

There are loads of websites offering all sorts of character writing advice. Completing a character chart is just one of the tools I’ve found useful – for an example, click this Character Chart
Another, is a website called homework tips – this posting on how to write a Character Analysis is loaded with fabulous pointers.
If you already know all this stuff, and are looking for a refresher both are worthwhile reads.

If you have any helpful character tips you’d like to share, please let us know in the comments below.

Love in the Vines Cover Master 72Here’s a snap shot of the characters I created for Love in the Vines – Food, wine, love and betrayal. Like wine, love begins in the vines. Betrayal begins in the heart of a marriage.

Carla
Married her childhood sweetheart and now stays at home and raise her two children. Bored by domestic routine, Carla is determined to return to work. Serendipity knocked, and the door to a job at a local prestigious winery opened. Her life as she once knew it soon drained like an empty wine glass. Only to be refilled by the irresistible lure of the man with the green eyes.
“Now feeling like a full time appliance, it was plug me in and I’ll do it, with one day repeating into the next.”
“Pardon the pun, you’ve brought me out of my shell. Consider me a lover… of oysters.”
“Time stands still for no one let alone a woman in the……”

The Husband
Happily married to Carla and considered by all to be a loving son, and the perfect husband and father. Handsome, and happy-go-lucky, he is an “easy to please” guy, and is incredibly proud of his family. He’s the guy everyone likes to love. Yet, underneath his kind-hearted demeanor is a calculating man who doesn’t suffer fools.
“If anyone catches you drinking before work, they’ll assume you’ve got a problem!”
“The phone felt like it was burning in my hand.”

Matt – The Winemaker (Vintner)
A former hard-to-please advertising agency executive, who has since turned his back on the corporate world in pursuit of his true passion. Now an award-winning, gifted winemaker, his moodiness and arrogance is despised by some, and works like a magnetic pull on others. He likes nothing more than to complain about his workload, and is unable to function without his morning coffee. Some would say, he’s obsessive about coffee.
“I’m the first to admit I’m a difficult self-centred bastard who squirms at the mention of being a team player.”
“Matt, go to France and our marriage is over.”
“This is where the magic happens, like great wine love begins in the vines.”

Frankie
Carla’s boss, and has worked at the winery for a number of years. Bright, stylish, and a hard worker she is highly attuned to everything that goes on around her. Frankie will stand in the way of anyone who tries to cross her. The one person she despises the most is Matt. Frankie is not married, but has a boyfriend.
“Sorry, I feel like we’ve just interrupted a moment…”
“…..If she thinks I’m going to buy that story……it’s so riddled with holes you can see right through it.”
“Maybe I’ll wade right into their murky waters and do a little fishing for trouble.”
“Oh God I’m doing this, because I hate being lied to.”

Ten Things I now know as a Newbie E-Book Writer.

I still consider myself to be a certified newbie.
Before I started writing in earnest, there would always be some sort of drama and dialogue going on inside my head. Now, some might say, I have a problem and need to visit the brainy peeps in white coats. But, really it’s just my imagination at play.
Transforming the scenario’s inside my head into stories, and ultimately publishing them as e-books requires more than the “ten things I now know” written below (hello that’s an unintentional rhyme). They are however, ten steps in the right direction.
Please note – if you are looking for a meaty how-to-e-publish post, I’m afraid this post will disappoint. It’s my intention to blog more on this, and e-book marketing in the near future. 
1.  Commit
Make a commitment to write with the intention of publishing an e-book. Commit to wearing more than a writer’s hat. At some stage, and sometimes all at once, you’ll be wearing a marketing, publishing, and a therapy hat. 
2.  Show Up
If you don’t show up to write, not a single word will get written. All you’ll have is a blank screen, or page. Time, focus, and words strung together into creative sentences, are a few of the necessary ingredients of writing. Make, and schedule time to write.
3.  Go with the Flow
As a runner, for me writing is a lot like pounding the pavement. Not one day is the same. Some days I feel like I can run for miles, while the next…my legs feel like I’m lugging around blocks of of concrete. With writing, one day you’re on a creative roll, the next your river of words has dried up to a mere trickle….Frustrating? Definitely. I’m learning, to go with the flow. If you’ll pardon the pun.
4.  Be a Sponge
Soak up as much information from others about writing, and the world of e-book publishing. Follow related blogs, befriend google and ask questions, join forums and groups – Amazon and Goodreads, a great place to start. Take webinars – online seminars cover a load of subjects from publishing on blogging, Kindle, e-book marketing and PR, success stories…they’re free, and jam-packed with juicy relevant information.
5.  Don’t be Afraid
Whether your brazen, über confident, or super shy, you’re going to need bucket loads of courage. To write, e-publish, read reviews, find your readers, navigate your way around the marketing, and dealing with angst and uncertainty. All require a badge of courage, and a willingness to venture into the soon-to-be-known territory
6.  Establish your name
As a newbie author you probably count your Mum, and a couple of good friends as die-hard loyal readers. I know I do. Expanding your reach beyond that precious three, requires a plan to find readers who, over time will like, love, and trust you enough to buy your books, and share the book love with their friends and family. Establishing your writing name/brand is an essential part of the marketing plan.   
7.  Marketing

Writing with the intention of selling requires at the very least, the backbone of a marketing plan. Step one, know from the onset who you perceive your readers are. Step two, know where to find your readers. A healthy mix of digital, with a little traditional marketing is needed to get your name established, readers, and sales. Without going into too much detail – to build a marketing foundation the must do/have basics are:

  • Blog. Create a blog relevant to establish your identity and what it is you want to be known and recognized for. Whatever you do, have a contact me page.
  • Website. At this risk of sounding like an old fashioned fuddy duddy – in this day and age if you’re not online, well let’s just say you risk extinction. Having a digital presence is crucial if you want to have a ounce of e-publishing success. For the budget conscious, like me, my free wordpress blog site doubles up as my website. And I love it.
  • Social Media. Its social, and its media. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, Tumblr connects you with like minded people who are interested in what you do. It’s a platform to interact.
  • PR. Public Relations interacts with social media, your blog, and or website. In fact, they all interact. But, a good old fashioned press release to announce your book, what it’s about, who the market is, how and where readers can buy it from, the price and why people should buy your book is like a one stop shop of information for media, and potential readers.
  • Elevator Pitch. A long lost friend stops you in the street and asks you, ‘so, what are you doing now?’ What’s your 15, ok maybe stretch it out to 30 seconds summary of what you do? By the time it takes you to ride the elevator from the ground to the penthouse suite, is all the time you need to sell yourself, and your book.
  • Be Consistent. Just like you show up for writing, be regular and consistent with your marketing. The key is consistency with relevant and engaging content. It’s not all about sales, don’t be afraid to mix a little sales with social. People want to get to know, like, love and trust you.

8. Accept Not all Reviews will be 5*****
Develop a thick skin. No matter what, getting and reading a review is a daunting task. One, I’ll never quite get used to. The way I survive reading a review and minimizing the possibility of a bad one completely ruining my day, is to allow myself only a couple of hours to think about it. Tops. Then, I have to let it go.
My policy. Focus on the positive, and respect your reviewer’s opinion. If you don’t like what you read, don’t even think about stepping into the boxing ring and going glove to glove with the reviewer. Sure, it’s tempting, but I believe, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Same applies if you get a great review. If you turn around and laud the reviewer with adulation, and praise, you no longer have an honest review.
Whether the review is good, or just plain ugly and brutal, try taking something positive from it. It’s easier said than done. One reader gave my book a 1* rating, and didn’t back it up with a review. Where’s the positive in that I asked? Well, after digging around, I found out the reader wasn’t in my target age group, and more than likely was never going to enjoy my story.
As hard as it is sometimes, I always appreciate the time and effort it has taken the reviewer to read your book, and write and post a review.
9.  Believe
For many self belief is the biggest hurdle. At times I’m plagued with self doubt, and throughout my day I can be heard muttering sound bites of encouragement. ‘Back Yourself’ has become a personal favorite. As Jack Canfield once said “tell people you’re a writer when you think you are.” I now tell peeps I’m a writer. And yes, I believe it too.
10.  Reality Check and Luck
This is a goodie. How do you measure success? By achieving your own goals? Showing up? Sales? Or….is it the little things you achieve, and learning from and surviving the failures, disappointments, dark days, mistakes, crankiness, writers block…that ultimately point us in the direction of “being successful.”
Writing with the intention of selling your book is a magic combo of content, marketing, luck, and giving people what they want at the right time.
Timing is everything. Whether it’s an overnight runaway #1 best seller, or it takes you a few months, or years. Rome wasn’t built in a day, neither will your writing career. Either way…believe, believe, believe in you.
