How to Plant Red Herrings in Crime Novels / Guest Post by Damyanti Biswas



Please help me to give Damyanti Biswas a BIG welcome. Her book YOU BENEATH YOUR SKIN has been making waves. I am honored to have her on my blog today.

Damyanti Biswas' Guest Post:

One of the joys of reading a mystery novel is trying to address a story question—who was the one who did it? I do not write traditional whodunits---my debut You Beneath Your Skin subverts the thriller genre—making of it a whydunnit. It helps though to have the structure of a page-turner, and that means red herrings.

Bactine for Introverted Writers - Do's and Dont's


Introverts struggle in many public situations, especially those with crowds of strangers. We can usually fake it till we make it, and can also do a decent job of being social when the circumstances require it, but it takes a toll on us. In the moment, it can take a lot out of us to gain the courage to break out of our shells, even if no one else sees it.

GIVEAWAY + Ways to Save Your Documents / Vlog


NOTE: I had to add word verification because of a persistent spammer. Sorry! It'll only be  up a few days.


Thanks for you interest in my vlog post about ways to save your work!

This is a PowerPoint presentation that I did for a local writer's meeting. I decided to share it after seeing several writers on Facebook complaining about losing their hard drive and how their ONE saving technique failed them. It's important to have a few saving techniques to protect your work.

I hope you find the information in it useful.

Enjoy!

A couple of years ago I went to my first ever book event/signing as a featured author. The first day was for workshops. I remember roaming around, seeing the people in attendance and noting how many of them knew each other and were greeting each like long-lost friends. I smiled at them, wanting to introduce myself, but not many made eye contact with me. If they did, they shifted away. I felt like a leper.

The New Kid on the Block

The next day, during the signing, although I did meet an author I knew online (yay!), I felt like an outcast.

While I went around, going from table to table to introduce myself and exchange business cards, I got blank stares in return. At one point, when I was introducing myself to one author, a group of three others came up to her, and the four them squealed and showed excitement at seeing each other again. I was literally pushed aside.
