Is anyone interested in taking a comprehensive plotting story course? I've been working on it forever, and it's finally ready for unveiling. I guide writers through the whole system of plotting, from figuring out the story type and question, to building the super-structure of the 3 acts, then framing in the 9 turning points, and then deepening everything by exploring the character's journey, goal, and strength. It's not designed especially for fanfic, but much of what I learned about corraling a big plot I learned from writing three big Spike novels. So the course is definitely informed by that. And I respect and understand the specific issues that come with plotting and writing fanfic based on existing characters.

So if you're looking to jump up to the next level in your fic plotting, or you want to try turning a fic into "original," this is a good opportunity. The interaction will be between you and the lessons, and also with me (there are 4 coaching calls included), and with other students only as much as you want.

And no, I don't teach like Spike. I couldn't get away with it! :)

I just want to give notice that I'll be taking down the My Life novel hoping to make something "original" out of it. (50 Shades of Spike! <G>)
I'm going to do it in a week, so if you want to save it, you can still download it till then.

The reason is I don't want all those vendor bots finding the story online and thinking I've plagiarized this person named Ana Ross!

So far in my revisions, I've changed some names:
Spike= Jake
Buffy = Sunny
Angel= Murph

miladyfelicia has been helping me conceptualize a new backstory and all that! Thanks to her! We'll have to see how this works. But if anyone else is trying to make your fanfic fic, message me, and let's discuss.

In "Stay" (the total angst short story), someone sings this song for Spike and Buffy, and here at the start of the new year, I'm thinking of the past year, and my dad (who died last year on the 5th anniversary of my mother's death)-- anyway, lovely song, lovely version. Happy new year, glad there's always a new one:

Hi, everyone! I've been really busy with this book, AND I'm thinking of making an original fic out of My Life Closed Twice. (Okay, hard not to notice that 50 Shades was fanfic and made MILLIONS.)

But first-- Could you all do me a quick favor?
I have just finished a new novel, and I’m trying something new, the Kindle Scout program. And I hope you’ll help me!
Would you nominate my book? All it takes is following this link for my Regency-set mystery novel, set after the war with Napoleon, and clicking the Nominate button (right under the description of the book).  https://kindlescout.amazon.com/p/3VWUZJI12YWD8
 This is a new venture for me, and I would be grateful for your help! Thanks! If they choose my book for publication, nominators get a free e-copy. And if you could share with friends, and they clicked that link and nominated me, I would really appreciate it!

The nominees are sort of impressive, so I don't think victory is in the future. But it's great!

I'm trying to get some reviews for my books on Amazon, so I'm doing
freebies one at a time. Anyway, if you get a chance, could you all
download this? It's a sweet story, nothing too angsty.

Me again! More recs please?  I'd like slash involving Spike. Any pairing as long as Spike's in the mix. What's your fave?
