When Is a WIP Done?

Aidan Donnelley Rowley and I tackle works in progress (WIPs) in this week's column, specifically the part of the process when they stop being 'in progress' and become completed manuscripts. Rowley is the author of Life After Yes and a Yale University graduate with a law degree from Columbia University. Her latest novel The Ramblers is a 'sophisticated tale of entangled urban lives' about three 30-something Manhattanites whose lives are forever altered over the course of Thanksgiving week.

Writing Under a Pen Name

Are you concerned about publishing secretly under a pen name because you won't be able to draw on the support of friends and family? International best-selling author MJ Summers and I offer advice in this week's East County Magazine 'Ask An Author' column. Also, learn more about MJ's writing process and breakout success!

April 14, 2016 (San Diego's East County) - We're going to talk about pen names and book promotion in today's column. To help me with this is my second favorite MJ, international best-selling author MJ Summers! She is the author of the steamy romance breakout novel, Break in Two, which propelled her career forward all the way to a six-figure book deal. She's since published four novels in the Full Hearts series and the novella Don't Let Go, a prequel to Break in Two. Her fifth Full Hearts novel, The Break-up, is available for pre-order.

Since most indie authors promote using social media, how do authors using pen names promote themselves? It seems like the first line of defense (grassroots marketing through friends and family) would be totally gone! -  Stephanie Yuhas, author of American Goulash Read more

Praise for the Authors

"In this honest and thoughtful exploration of a marriage coming undone, author Patricia Mann offers no easy solutions. Instead she takes us into the heart of what love and family is all about and reminds us there is no one-size fits all. A thoroughly satisfying read." - Eileen Goudge, New York Times Bestselling Author 

"This novel was very daring, dashed with forbidden romances and served with a great amount of hatred, revenge, and regrets... Sefer entertains the readers with a series of entanglements that gives the novel a chilly air of suspense. She shocks the readers with the cruelty of the acts of violence that occur within supposedly bold Greek families where pride, tradition, and legacy is revered. The message on forgiveness and maintain strong family bonds despite conflict and tragedy is what really makes the novel spectacular and heartwarming." - San Francisco Book Review   

"I do not know where to start with this book, except to say that I loved it!" - Lustful Literature
"Jan, the much lovable yet so far from perfect anti-heroine of this refreshing novel, seems to be plumbing new depths at each turn of the page, as her fairy-tale like, easy going world gradually crumbles around her... Revivifying and fun... this novel is a comforting reminder that it isn't all that easy to be a young woman discovering that most of the time the only prince charming who can save us is our own little selves." - San Francisco Book Review

"Meengs has a descriptive yet eloquent style that illuminates the adventures of the characters in Trigger... there is just enough clandestine spy, European romance, mystery and self-discovery to make Trigger a very intriguing read." - Christina B. Steele, Readers' Favorite

"The Passion Thief is an excellent story of finding one's self amidst the chaos of life. As we age, for women in particular, all of the variables in life that are beyond our control seem to culminate, leaving us to question where our priorities lie. While it is a work of fiction, the book is a testament to that. If anything, the book serves as a cautionary tale that the grass is not always greener on the other side." - San Francisco Book Review
"Julie is a beautiful writer with a warm heart and this is evident from page one of book one and it flowed through to Another Tomorrow." - Whairigail Adams, All Things Books

"Lilian Roberts has an almost poetic way of writing... There was this lovely flowing way about the words that I haven't seen in sometime. This book is definite MUST read and you don't have to love paranormal stories to read it." - Joe Cool Review
