I am always a work in progress... We never stop learning to master our craft.

Some of my favorite personal quotes..

"Everything I do, everything I am, all that I breathe is 18+ and will contain sexually suggestive material. ~ Gina Kincade 2011

"If you never have any expectations of other people then you will never be disappointed. When a positive experience occurs it is always a reason to rejoice." ~Gina Kincade, 2009

"I have learned, as a rule of thumb, never to ask whether you can do something. Say, instead, that you are doing it. Then fasten your seat belt. The most remarkable things follow." ~Julia Cameron

Four Major Things That Can Ruin A Writer's Career

Four major things a writer should NEVER do if they ever hope to succeed in the world of writing:

1. Insult a publisher they are contracted under.
2. Insult a marketing person in charge of promoting their books
3. Insult/put down the editors who are working on their book.
4. Insult the designer creating the cover art for their work.

Do any of these things and you risk being blacklisted as a writer.
Do them all and you have just signed your own guaranteed failure contract.

Follow me for a list of the minor things to accompany this shortly!

  1. Things a start up publisher should never do:

    1) draft a contract setting forth author's rights that it has no intention of following;

    2) Attempt to rewrite the contract that it wrote once it's been caught in multiple "non-compliances";

    3) Take umbrage over legitimate concerns and criticisms;

    3) Insult the author for pointing out concerns over the handling of the author's work. An author is a business partner, not a club member.

    These are the types of actions, inter alia, that get a publisher listed unfavorably on predator and editor sites.
