The Importance of Diversity in Fiction / Guest Post by Ronel Janse van Vuuren

Today I am hosting Ronel Janse van Vuuren. She is talking about a very important topic. Welcome, Ronel!


I read a meme a while back that said something in the line of: if you are going to walk in someone else’s shoes, better get far away before they notice the theft.

The conversation about diversity is easy: when someone talks about being marginalised for some reason, you simply switch topics by saying you are feeling uncomfortable. Like avoiding your discomfort is more important than acknowledging someone else’s Truth.

Editing Techniques PowerPoint Presentation / Vlog

Thanks for you interest in my vlog post about editing techniques!

This was a PowerPoint presentation that I did for a local writer's meeting. I decided to share it because writers have to self-edit/revise. It's just part of our jobs as writers. And in this post, I provide techniques to make reading your manuscript over and over again a bit more bearable.

I hope you find the information useful.

Favorite Holiday Memory Blog Hop / Sleigh Ride by Elaine Kaye

Hi, everyone! Thanks for stopping by for this blog hop to celebrate my mom's newest picture book SLEIGH RIDE!

Blog Hop Question: What is your favorite holiday memory?

(This includes Hanukkah, Kwanza, Yule/Winter Solstice, Christmas, etc.)

MY MEMORY: I was obsessed with The Nutcracker ballet when I was little. Every day for a year I watched an old tape and fantasized I was Clara. I didn’t know how to dance ballet, but that didn’t stop me from showing off my moves…karate moves. I would jab my fists in the air and punch and kick as gracefully as I could.

Chrys Fey's Advice for No-Show Events


FROZEN CRIMES: I submitted Frozen Crimes (Disaster Crimes Book 5) to my editor/publisher. Now I just have to wait 90 days or so before I hear back on whether or not they like it.

BAD FAIRY: My mom got a contract with The Wild Rose Press for her debut middle grade book BAD FAIRY!

KEEP WRITING WITH FEY: I signed the contract for the sequel to Write with Fey with Dancing Lemur Press. It's titled Keep Writing with Fey: Sparks to Defeat Writer's Block, Depression, and Burnout. It's MUCH MORE than what you've seen here. And very personal.
