WORSE THAN WICKED IS HOT!

Terrific news: WORSE THAN WICKED, my YA fantasy, is now Hot at Kindle Scout! This category fluctuates, so there’s no telling how long it will stay there, but I’m encouraged by this surge of interest.

If you’re unfamiliar with Kindle Scout, it’s an Amazon program that invites readers to nominate books for possible publication.

NOBODY KNEW SHE WAS THERE -WOMEN IN FANTASY

elfland02-194x300

My OWW writer friend, Phillip Spencer, who pens the blog “Nightspore”, recently linked to a post by British author Freda Warrington (ELFLAND), in which she discusses the desire to create strong female characters when writing fantasy.

An excerpt:

I wanted to read about mutual pleasure and joy, I wanted the women to have as much fun as the men, I did not want the men to be selfish pigs, I wanted equality and respect and shared adventure. But too often, in fiction, I was not finding it. Not even from female authors.

It’s a long post, but well worth reading if you write or read fantasy.
