The Great Escape: Las Vegas, NV

It has occurred to me that I can not finish my next book while at home.  The endless noise, questions, stares, and distractions make this a near impossibility. But, Tania, you wrote 95% of the book at home, so what’s your problem, you ask?

Answer: Although the beginning and middle are all great, I think the end deserves a special kind of finesse and must be done with tact.  It is hard for me to wrap my head around this concept with so much going on around me all the time.  Did I mention before that my home was a hostile? Okay, not really. I love my family, but it’s time for the big escape to finish this book without any distractions.


My plan: The mission I have accepted is to spend four days in beautiful Las Vegas at a wonderful resort courtesy of my expiring timeshare. Each day I will wake-up and spend my time divulged into finish the book. I have 2 days to do this. TWO! The next two days will be spent on doing a quick go over, before submitting it for editing.

Agenda: Wake-up and do some social media for Be Still and Surviving the Writing Apocalypse (available in print soon). I am allowing only one to one and half hours to do this then …

9am: write

12 pm: snacks, smoothies, nurishment

1 pm: reading (for http://www.WritingApocalypse.com books for review)

2:30pm: more writing

5pm: dinner

6:30pm: poolside reading for reviews

7:30pm: more writing

9pm: frozen cucumber slices on my eyeballs because they are going to hurt

Goal: Finish writing and first round editing

Milestone: I’ll be ecstatic if I just finish the book!

If anyone is in the Las Vegas area and wold like to meet for coffee, tea, lunch, or dinner let me know. It would be nice to mingle with some authors during my tentative breaks. I’ll be there early April

By the way, The Writing Apocalypse website is accepting submissions for books for review to be accepted onto the website. The March cost is $25, and you get a full content review along with a basic review to be posted on Amazon and here. If your book is accepted we place it on the website with a link directly into Amazon and share you across all our social media sites. Plus you’ll be eligible for Book of the Month and Book of the Year. That’s a huge package for a small cost. (we only charge because it helps us keep the website up and one of our guys does this job full time) Click for info: SURVIVOR All reviews are honest! Just because you pay does not guarantee a good review or acceptance onto the website.


Press Release Update

Have a look at my latest press release through PR Log for Surviving the Writing Apocalypse.  I think its well written and love what was said.  All thanks to Blackbird LSD for taking the time to do this on my behalf.




Where Quality Books Go

For months, I have been working on the book Surviving the Writing Apocalypse. Through the production of the book the idea to create a website surrounding the book came about.  My best-friend and publicist and I decided there should be a website dedicated to quality indie books for authors and readers alike.  We searched the internet and found a few places with this idea, but it ended there.

We had to be different to make an impact.  We decided the website would be a full service site complete with author resources such as freelance editors, graphic artists, formatters, bloggers, and freelance publicists, along with downloads to the key things that help some authors such as character sheets and book logs.  My simple website became something huge.

The book was finally published through Booktango Dec 10,2012.  It was my hope our website would be up Dec 21, 2012 (our latest doomsday), but we still had books to read.  The launching date was moved to 01/01/13, today. And so, today the publish button was hit and the beta phase of The Writing Apocalypse website went into full swing.  This could be a complete flop or a major literary accomplishment. One can never tell, but what I do know is that my entrepreneur  genes are ready to see this become a success.

Surviving the Writing Apocalypse 12/21/12-ish

Surviving the Writing Apocalypse 01/01/13

What does the website offer?

  • Book of the month feature page
  • Specific genres listed
  • Author resources
  • Books with links
  • Book of the year with two runners-up
  • Room to grow
  • 3 chapter or 30 page review service
  • advertising opportunities for small indie services
  • social media shout outs for the books on our site through FB, twitter, and of course here

I think offering all this is what will make us stand apart.  So if you need some quick, cut-and-dry pointers with some of the writing guidelines set forth by the industry read the book Surviving the Writing Apocalypse. If you need some resources or just looking for a quality indie book to read, then look into our website The Writing Apocalypse.  Be sure to check out our book of the month by Katie Jennings, When Empires Fall.  And thank you all so much for the support we have received in bringing this thought into fruition.
