Jacqueline Hopkins-Walton’s book, Wilderness Heart is featured today on Indiereader.com on their USA Today’s Happily Ever After blog as a recommended read.
Lyn Taylor loves her job as an Idaho wilderness hunting guide, but her world is complicated. It is a man’s job in a man’s world where she must constantly prove she is very capable and qualified to guide men on their hunts. On top of her father barely engaging in life since the death of Lyn’s mother, Lyn has second thoughts about marrying and having a man in her life.
But that was before she met Nic Randall, a lumber man, who comes from Montana to find timber to be bid on and milled. He is convinced she can’t handle the job as their guide because she is a woman and she is, of course, insulted. Nevertheless, neither has much choice and are forced to spend day and night together for the seven day hunt. Lyn is not happy — just how much is a confident, independent woman suppose to put up with?
Wilderness Heart is available from Amazon and Smashwords. You can learn more about Jacqueline from her blog.
My evil plans to take over the world are proceeding apace. I am pleased to announce that the venerable JD Mader will be joining Indies Unlimited as a Contributing Author. JD will be strutting his literary stuff here at least a couple of times a week, or I will feed him to Kat—and not all at once.
JD is a good friend and the author of Joe Café, and has written a couple of very well-received guest posts for me here. His style ranges from deep and soulful to side-splittingly funny and I know you will enjoy his work. If not, the procedures for submitting letters of complaint can be found here.
Please join me in welcoming JD Mader to the Indies Unlimited crew!
When an author decides to start writing a book, the different sides of the project – like the sides of a cube – present themselves. Just like a cube, the new project does not reveal all planes in one viewing. There is always a hidden side – or a difficult aspect for an author to address.
It is possible to give the six sides of the cube different facet names associated with writing a novel: story, plot, structure, characters, locations … and the all-important premise. They all present challenges to the author. The last more than the others. Hm – can an author afford to address the premise last? Turning the cube so that premise is always on the blind side might be possible when scribbling out a plot outline, or sketching out the various characters.

Author Lili Tufel writes fast-paced nonstop action. She says, “If I’m bored, then I know my readers are bored. If I’m feeling a rush of excitement then I know my readers will have their pulse racing. Sand is full of surprises that surprised me as I wrote them. The shock ending was my favorite, what a rush!”
