The 2015 Louisiana Book Festival is Oct. 31, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m, in downtown Baton Rouge at the State Library of Louisiana, the State Capitol, the Capitol Park Museum and nearby locations. There is live music, festival food, and tons of books! There are talks all day from featured authors, a children’s tent, activities, and a great time!

Do you Wattpad?

For those of you unfamiliar with Wattpad, here is the most basic information straight from the sight itself.

Wattpad is a place to discover and share stories: a social platform that connects people through words. It is a community that spans borders, interests, languages. With Wattpad, anyone can read or write on any device: phone, tablet, or computer.

beauhunterSometimes, when I need a break from the larger projects, I’ll switch over to write short stories. It’s an easy way to keep your mind in that creative space and keep fresh ideas coming.

To me, short stories are much more difficult to write than full-length novels. They require all of the same elements as the 80,000 word books, but it must be very condensed. This means each line must be necessary, each word of dialogue must move your plot forward and reveal something important.

I’ve published my short story, Beau Hunter, on Wattpad. It is free to anyone who wants to read it. I’ll continue to post my short stories there and maybe even some samples from my novels and future works. So keep an eye out and HAPPY READING!
