Using AI to Write

By |2023-05-30T16:25:10+12:00May 30th, 2023|News Blog Update, News Letter, News Updates|

There’s a push to produce words in the shortest possible time. Use AI to write.

You can finish fast while using AI to write, but what about plagiarism and copyright issues?  Where’s the humanity in much of this “machine generated” work?

Many writers are shocked by the new release of AI to write content but it’s up to authors to produce higher […]

Confessions of Love

By |2023-05-17T11:12:02+12:00May 17th, 2023|Confessions of Love, News Updates|

I wrote, Confessions of Love, while overseas at the end of last year.

My husband said I should call it, “What Your Lovers Told Me,” and in hindsight, I think his advice was more catchy and true to the content.

Struggling with intermittent WI-FI along with the interruptions of traveling, eating and drinking, meant I didn’t advertise or promote this book air […]

Famous Female Pirates.

While researching famous female pirates for my next new writing project I’ve stumbled upon some fascinating information about female pirates who made their mark on the high seas.

Women were not the simpering characters often depicted in novels and movies, clutching their silk dresses and pearls or fainting with shock and horror.

Here’s a […]

N F Webber – What’s in a name? A lot actually.

I am venturing into psychological thriller genre and to distinguish it from my other books, I’ve used my initials N F Webber.

Making that distinction allows readers to find my thriller suspense books more easily. Especially as I intend to write more. I hear you say NFW! Haha

The meaning of those […]

After much book-cover angst over my new psychological thriller, The Foster Mother, I bit the bullet.

I put the job out to professional cover designers in USA.

Three weeks later they returned with their concept mockup. It immediately took my breath away!

Giving them the brief put me on the spot. They asked all kinds of questions about the plot, the characters […]

For me the hardest thing to write has been The Foster Mother Blurb.

Here is the Foster Mother Blurb after input from award winning experts and about a dozen teeth grinding rewrites from me.

There’s a world of difference between a mother and a psychopath. But sometimes, it’s hard to tell them apart… 

When a young mother abandons her baby in […]

Learning new things and reworking the core part of an author business is critical these days.

Yesterday I spent three amazing hours with publishing book consultant and author extraordinaire, Kirsten McKenzie. It was an eye-opening session and reinforces the much repeated concept that you don’t know what you don’t know. It turns out I hardly know a thing.

She discussed my […]

Duplicity Hit 200 Book Reviews

By |2023-01-30T13:15:26+13:00January 30th, 2023|Duplicity, Night Lark, Reviews|

Recently I’ve sounded obsessive about book reviews but there is some good news. Duplicity has hit the 200 reader review mark.

It’s a bit like dating. If you aren’t looking for that perfect partner, then you’ll stumble across him in the most unexpected place. It’s the same with book reviews. I’ve been down in the dumps with frustration over […]
