What favorite memories have made it into your stories and books? Let me know!
I’ve been doing selfies for years and I especially love videos.
So when fellow Kindle Scout winner, Fiona Quinn, asked me about making videos, I put together some info for her ThrillWriting Blogspot.
Also, check out the fab posts about the interesting worlds of many fascinating authors on her blog.
So here is â€œSorbet for Your Writingâ€ â€“ making videos with me, Jina Bacarr.
Any questions? Please ask me…I love hearing from you.
PS — If you want to read about the night I almost went over Mulholland with a sexy DJ . . . check out my post on Fiona’s blog!
She wore gray.
He wore blue.
But their love defied the boundaries of war.
I’d love to hear from you. You can find me on social media:
The sales pitch.
You either love it or hate it.
For your novel, it’s called the back cover copy. It can be even more difficult to write than the dreaded synopsis when you’re self-pubbing a novel. But you gotta do it.
The tease. The logline. The character descriptions.
Sometimes it seems it takes longer the write the back cover copy than the novel itself (just kidding…).
So you can imagine how excited I was when I found out my back cover copy and beautiful cover from Covers by Ramona for A Soldier’s Italian Christmas is a finalist in the Novella category in the I Heart Indie contest!
Here’s the back copy cover:
He is a U.S Army captain, a battle-weary soldier who has lost his faith.
She is a nun, her life dedicated to God.
Together they are going to commit an act the civilized world will not tolerate.
They are about to fall in love.
The ravages of combat have taken a toll on Captain Mack Oâ€™Casey, who has lost his faith after seeing the horrors of war as the Nazis fight hard to keep the Allies from reaching Rome. His beliefs are challenged even more when he loses his way and ends up in a mystical place called Monte D’Oro Rose during the cold winter of 1943â€¦and falls in love with the beautiful Sister Angelina.
The young nun has a secret of her own, one she will die trying to protect: the lost Cross of Saint Cecelia. She must find the religious relic first before the brutal Nazi major who will stop at nothing to get it. Even murder. Sister Angelina risks her life to save the cross for the Church, but will she also risk her heart? Falling in love with the handsome American soldier is against the rules, but she canâ€™t deny the stolen moments with him have made her question her vows.
It is Christmas Eve when these two lonely people come together on this holiest of holidays and how faith helps them overcome their greatest fears. A time when the whole world holds its breath as brave men and women fight for freedom.
And a soldier and a nun dare to fall in loveâ€¦
And here is the cover! Check out this extended video excerpt from Chapter One from A Soldier’s Italian Christmas
St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner…
So how could I not put up a Princess video with a magic shamrock theme?
Here is the latest in my “Princess Chronicles” — video romance poems about being a princess. My princesses know a tiara doesn’t a princess make…and in this story, we meet a princess who’s not looking for a prince but a job!!

The clock is ticking…
Tick tock…tick tock…
How many words did you write today? Why haven’t you finish that book yet?
We all torment ourselves with these phrases and then blame our lack of productivity on…
Twitter…Facebook…Instagram…kids…family…the Internet…not enough coffee.
It’s all about focus.
And finding that beautiful space in our minds where we can run free and create and write and write and write.
It can be as elusive as a butterfly.
But well worth going after, no matter what gets in our way.
According to experts, interruptions can put a big damper on our concentration and it can take about ten minutes to get the writing flowing again.
So the next time an email pops into your Inbox, or the phone rings, or someone yells, “Hey, Mom, are you busy?” know that it’s not your fault if it takes a few minutes to get back into the moment.
Then let the butterfly in your mind run free…
You can be sure I had a lot of interruptions putting this together, but I finished it!
