Hearts Talk Wrap

Check out our all new look

Well don’t we look spiffy with our new logo and masthead.  Of course we sound spiffy too.   Look out for this month’s issue.


Maisey Yates Does Freo

Now there’s a headline Maisey Yates probably wasn’t expecting.  Maisey talks screwed up heroes, shirtless cowboys and Ryan Gosling.  Yeah, you don’t need any more prompting to read the story.  But just in case you didn’t read that line – Ryan Gosling – she gives some good advice as well.

The Write Craft

Kandy Shepherd (Reinventing Rose), puts backstory on the front foot.

She talks to Jaye Ford (Blood Secret), Isolde Martin (Mistress to the Crown), Sharon Archer (Single Father, Wife and Mother Wanted), Fiona Lowe (Picture Perfect Wedding), CC Coburn (The Cowboy, The Cheat, his Ex-Wife and her Vibrator), Annie West (An Enticing Debt to Pay), Anna Campbell (A Rake’s Midnight Kiss) and Cathleen Ross (Her Demon Prince) about the role and place of backstory and how to wrangle it into shape.

Beware.  There is a little letting go and a lot of manipulation.

What Makes Writer’s Write

According to Mel Tescho (Galactic Flame) what makes writers write is madness, drugs and, oh sorry, that was this week’s Breaking Bad.  Mel says it’s got something to do with stubbornness and going wild. 

A Writer’s Life

Annie Grace talks about the evils of feather boas, demented expressions, orange skin-tone, lopsided hats and ah-hum, unfortunate wardrobe failures.  Yes, it’s trial by dreaded author photo.

The Writer’s Journey

Rhyll Biest talks to some twit called Ainslie Paton (Detained), who has absolutely nothing interesting to say, and forgot she was going to be in this issue.  D’oh.  Move along, nothing to see here.
