Well, The Boys of Summer Book Tour is winding down into the last couple of days, but there is still plenty left on tap to do and see!
Today, I have a post up about writing advice. I don’t know about you, but it seems to me there is a lot of advice floating around out there. Some good, some bad. How do you know which to follow? Logic would dictate that advice from a best-selling author would seem to be the best advice to take–but that author may not live in similar circumstances to you, or may not have a similar life philosophy. What he or she proposes as the ONLY way to succeed may not work for you. You need to find your own path.
Back in May, I attended Richard Hatch’s Acting from the Heart workshop at Galacticon. I’ve posted in greater detail about my time there, but the experience of the workshop was an enjoyable one for me. Much of what Richard Hatch had to say resonated with me, and yet it seemed like a tantalizingly brief period of time to take an epiphany and turn it into something you could make a foundation for the rest of your life. Later during the weekend, I had an opportunity to speak with him about the workshop and some of my reactions. It was Mr. Hatch who gave me one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever received–find a teacher whose philosophy resonates with you and learn from them. I share that and more on my guest post over at Eden Winter’s site: Magnolias and Men. Do stop by and leave a comment to be entered for a chance at a $50 Amazon gift card.
In the meantime, I’m working feverishly to finish a free short holiday story featuring Rick and David from The Boys of Summer! It will be posted Sunday Dec 22 in time for the last day of the book tour. I’m also baking more sausage balls–the first batch was such a hit that there aren’t any left for Christmas! I’ll be sharing the secrets of my famous sausage ball recipe on Sunday as well.

Speaking of finding someone with a similar life philosophy that you want to follow, I loved Kate Sherwood’s response to my question as to whether she’d ever been intimidated by reviews. I think she’s got it down cold–and that’s going to be my goal from now on!
