Writing from the Dark Side

Heh! I started out calling this blog post "Blogging from the Darkside" and then went to "Writing from the Darkside" and then went on to finally arrive at "Pubbing from the Darkside".  This little tidbit of information should be able to give you a little hint over what has been happening at the Oliver Homestead since I last posted.

Big News! I am part of a great collaboration with a collection of Writers who decided that if a romance book should be done, it should be done by us! Hence, the beginning of what is now know as Welcome to Serenity Harbor, Maine.

This is huge! This is ginormous! All of the books are set around the fictional coastal Maine town of Serenity Harbor. We didn't limit genre, only that their characters fall in love in Maine.

For me, this was a return to something that I love... well, yes... it was a return to writing. I've blogged a little bit about some of my struggles with illness that left with being unable to write for a whi…

April Update!

I love April! More because there is just so much promise of Spring in the beginning of April. In Maine, we can't go by official dates. Instead, we are forced to wait until Mother Nature decides that it's time for us to get out an enjoy the sunshine.

Unfortunately, (or fortunately) today is an steely overcast gray. It's not cold, but it's not a basking sunny day either. This is probably for the best, as I really need to buckle down this weekend and get some planning and writing done.


If you don't know, I'm sort of in charge (along with some wonderful other people) in coordinating the SERENITY HARBOR ANTHOLOGY. This is set to come out in early Fall. We are hoping for beginning of September. The SERENITY HARBOR ANTHOLOGY is made up of a group of authors who wanted to write about our favorite place... Maine! So while Serenity Harbor can't be found on a map in Maine, the setting is going to be very much like the coastal towns that we love. All of the stories are centered around the harbor and the people that live and love there. As we go along, I'm hoping to feature some of the authors that are included and to let you get to know some of them before the book launches.

Just to give you a little taste of Maine to entice you to read the Anthology!


This was taken very close to where I work at Popham Beach. It's gorgeous!

Needless to say, I'm very excited about being able to work with some of my most favorite authors. I've known most of them for years, but I'm very glad to be bringing them and their stories to you. Stay tuned for more information.


In the meantime... Here's some social media links for you.

Another Loss...

Another young person from our community passed away yesterday.

For me, all I know is the grief I feel that yet another life has gone way too soon. Maybe I'm getting old. I've seen far too much of this and it's heartbreaking every single time, whether they are related or not. We are community. We are family. In this case, he was family, but that doesn't mean anything when you grow up in a small place. Every child is your child. And every hurt they have is yours.

Out of this long list of young people that have left us too soon, there are so many left behind that still mark the holidays, birthdays and life events that they have missed. We struggle, knowing that the pain we feel is as much for ourselves as it is for them. We share our memories with others, many times through social media, so that their memory, their presence lives on around us.

Every day when my son leaves I tell him to be safe. He finds it funny that I still continue to do so, but if it's that one re…

10 Things I learned from Hosting a Guest on my Blog

Hosting on my blog is a new experience for me. It's something that I've thought of undertaking for quite some time, but until now I wasn't sure that I could do. Thursday, I hosted friend and fellow adventurer, Diane Amos, who talked about her path to publication with her latest Five Star book, Promise Me Forever. We talked about this for awhile before attempting it.

Neither of us was sure just what was going to happen, but in the end I was happy with the results. We ended up with 27 visitors for the blog and around 10 comments (I think). This may not seem like much, but considering that this is about five times the normal visitors/daily that I get I was pretty darned happy with it. There were a few things that I worked out along the way and I'll pass these tips on to anyone who may be interested in hosting or being part of a blog tour.

1. Decide the topic to be discussed keeping it to something that will be of interest to your blog readers. If you write a research bl…
