My turn to sit down and have a lovely conversation with poet and author Colleen Chesebro, who made me feel right at home and winkled all sorts of things out of me… some of the topics we covered were writing about emotion from a male perspective, Hummingbird moths, inspirations and my views on blogging…I hope you will head over and join us. If you have not yet had a conversation with Colleen then I suggest you put your name down on the waiting list pronto… her interviews are in high demand…
Here is a snippet and I hope you will head over to read the rest of the post….thanks Sally.
Hello everyone! This week I’m happy to bring you an author we all know and love, Sally Cronin.
Sally is a fixture in our blogging community who supports authors in every stage of the game. Her blog, Smorgasbord Blog Magazine, is a blog magazine for lovers of health, food, books, music, humor, and life in general.
Here are a few of the features you will find in the Smorgasbord Blog Magazine:
And, these are only a few of the highlights offered on Sally Cronin’s blog. You will definitely want to stop by and have a visit. Her blog is a virtual magazine filled with love, humor, and music! There’s something for everyone.
With the Christmas season well underway, it occurred to me that one way to thank Sally for everything she’s done for our writing community is to share more about this lovely lady. When I asked her to pick three or four questions from my huge list HERE, she willingly complied. I didn’t have to beg or anything! Now, that’s a true friend! ❤
I have been a storyteller most of my life (my mother called them fibs!). Poetry, song lyrics and short stories were left behind when work and life intruded, but that all changed in 1996. My first book Size Matters was a health and weight loss book based on my own experiences of losing 70kilo. I have written another ten books since then on health and also fiction including three collections of short stories. I am an indie author and proud to be one. My greatest pleasure comes from those readers who enjoy my take on health, characters and twisted endings… and of course come back for more.
REVIEWS are so very important for an author and I am very grateful for the feedback that my books receive. If you have purchased or been gifted one of my books I would love to hear what you think about it.
As a writer I know how important it is to have help in marketing books.. as important as my own promotion is, I believe it is important to support others. I offer a number of FREE promotional opportunities on my blog and linked to my social media. If you are an author who would like to be promoted to a new audience of dedicated readers, please contact me via my blog. All it will cost you is a few minutes of your time. Look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you so much, Colleen, for inviting me over to visit… particularly at this special time of the year.
I love visiting with you, Sally. I’m thrilled you’re here. I’ve been meaning to ask you… What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
When writing about the opposite sex I believe the most difficult thing is getting emotional interactions right. Men are just as emotional as women but usually show it in a different way. Not all men are emotionally demonstrative, telling you they love you all the time and wanting to hug every five minutes. They tend to show you how much they love you by actions rather than words. It is useful to remember that telling a man you have a problem prompts him into immediate action to solve the issue.
When two women get together, they talk out the problem and come up with a solution that usually does not require calling out the National Guard or dismantling half the kitchen. If you get my drift? This does require some careful thought about how your lead characters are going to react.
Please head over and read the full interview.. thanks Sally
