I read a comment recently in author Darcy Pattison’s newsletter that talked about the first draft giving the writer the opportunity to really figure out what the story is about and revision being the place to clarify this.

“Mysterious Galaxy has supported multi-faceted Arizona author Sharon Skinner at a number of conventions over the past few years, but 2015 marks her first in-store event. Sharon’s most recent novel is middle grade ghost story Mirabella & the Faded Phantom. Sharon’s body of fiction also includes middle grade fantasy, epic fantasy, and poetry. Brick Cave publisher and co-author Robert Nelson joins Sharon to talk about indie press matters, and their steampunk ebook adventures, the latest of which is Tavara Tinker: Sounds of Time.”

What’s the big deal about grammar and punctuation? Why do they exist and what makes people get so riled up about them?
There are tons of “rule books” and style books in abundance, including Strunk and White’s Elements of Style, “a prescriptive American English writing style guide in numerous editions” and even English Grammar for Dummies by Geraldine Woods.
This past December, being a member of the Wyked Women Who Write brought me an early holiday gift, my first Barnes and Nobel Bookstore book signing. Together with the fabulous Gini Koch and T.L. Smith, I got to help represent our awesome Wyked Women writers, meet some awesome fans and, of course, sell and sign books.
While Sharon is off to Nevada for a book appearance for the weekend, her publisher has secured a limited number of SIGNED copies of each book to offer at 2014 Phoenix Comicon Fanfest!
Brick Cave Media is at table A928 on the Exhibitor Floor, be sure to stop by early and get your copy.
Phoenix Comicon Fanfest is December 12-14 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
