Tonight, I have the pleasure of being a guest on the Jewel Writes Romance blog. In celebration of Six Plus One‘s release, I thought it’d be fun to turn a scene of Eugene confronting the camp counselor, Grayson, of stealing money into a script.
If so, head on over to Jewel E. Leonard’s blog by clicking the link: Guest Post: Yawatta Hosby.
I had the pleasure of being a guest on Avrin Kelly’s blog. Wicked Shorts features her quirky, horror short stories. She really impressed me. Instead of just doing a standard interview, she wanted to turn my Q&A into a horror story. Welcome to my first collaborative effort. Avrin was a rock star, writing and revising 95% of everything.
Here’s an excerpt of Glass Witch:
The dark, three story house loomed overhead as I stood in the property’s driveway. Droplets of water fell from above, threatening to undo the curls in my hair and the makeup on my face.
I propelled myself out of the rain and up the steps. The old wood creaked under my heels as I glided to the tall front door and unlocked the house.
Today was a huge day.
I couldn’t believe my good luck.
It was my very first interview for Wicked Shorts: a blog I hosted about speculative fiction, weird fiction and horror and the person I was interviewing was quickly becoming a personal hero of mine.
Yawatta Hosby was a strong, impeccably well written author of thriller and suspense novels. She was the real deal, and she’d be here in less than ten minutes.

I’m so excited! I was lucky to be a guest on Author Meka James‘s blog. She gave me a interview to help support my new release, Six Plus One.
My author interview:
1. What books have influenced your life?
Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries have always had a place in my heart. For the longest time, I’d only buy her novels in bookstores. My favorite of hers: And Then There Were None, Murder on the Orient Express, and The A.B.C. Murders. Her writing has influenced me in every way possible, even down to the monsters in my stories are always human.

Plus, Alexandrina Brant hosted a cover reveal of Six Plus One on her blog. She said, “Whilst Yawatta’s first edition of ONE BY ONE featured its infamous house in the woods wrapped by yellow police tape, the misty woods of SIX PLUS ONE’s cover reflects the trademark of her books, of the atmospheric mist that smothers the characters and drains their spirits.”
If you’d like to read the rest (I feel like she really gets me and gives a great analytical viewpoint of my books), please click: Cover Reveal: SIX PLUS ONE by Yawatta Hosby.

As a freelancer, I’ve been given the wonderful opportunity to contribute to The Millionaire’s Digest. My first article posted today. 🙂
Here’s a snippet:
The #1 Tip For Getting Started As a Fiction Writer
Life is about creating memories. Do you agree?
Authors have the gift of capturing moments on the page. A great book has the reader forget that they’re reading. They get lost in the pages and follow the character’s journey as though they are in a fictional world.
How do authors capture these special moments on the page?

I haven’t guest blogged in a long time, so I jumped on the chance when fellow local author, Ginger Harman, asked me to write a book review for her blog. We both love to read. And, we both agree that writing doesn’t have to be a lonely activity. I’m happy that I met her.
If this book looks interesting to you, then please check out Ginger Dawn-A Spice Below the Horizon’s blog to see what I thought of this horror short story collection. Here’s the link: Guest Book Review: Tales From the Graveyard by Susan Shultz.
Pursuing Your Writing Dreams Without A Support System
If you click on the link and get to the end of the article, then you’ll notice that I wrote it! The website, Success Story, gave me the opportunity to be one of their online authors. I even get to include my bio.
Slowly but surely, I’m building my writing resume. And, it feels so good. If I would’ve pursued freelance writing a year ago, I wouldn’t have lasted long. Unfortunately, I probably would’ve still been in self-sabotage mode due to fear and lack of confidence.
Now I can honestly say, I love the challenge. It feels empowering reaching out to blogs and magazines to see if they’d take a chance on my article ideas (trust me, I have plenty; my mind never sleeps). It gets even better when editors reach out to me through email thanks to my freelance website.
I’m dressing for success, looking like a professional writer with my blazers, pants, and button down shirts. You never know who you may run into. I haven’t been shy passing out my business cards.
For all the freelancers out there, would you like to share some of your experiences?
