I did not create this list, and I want to give the proper credit. This list was compiled by C. Glockel and is awesomesaucealicious. It’s from her September 2014 tumbler post. I haven’t checked out all the links, but if 50% of them are active (and it’s probably much, much higher) I (and you) will have saved a ton of free-for-my-book publicity research.

Thanks for reading, and blessings to all.

Sometimes you’re up, and sometimes life grinds its heel in your face.

Coco Trueheart is feeling down and out. Her husband divorced her for a bimbo half her age. Her business is taking a direction she doesn’t like. And her only child is leaving the nest forever.

Coco’s Somewhat Excellent Adventures: Hawaii is the first of ten planned short stories.

Writing A Sci-Fi short story romance

I’ve been wanting to write a short story for some time.  This is a new endeavour, I’m used to pumping out 100K words.  Tackling 3-5K was daunting.  How would I express my H/h ‘s goals, motivations, and conflicts?  How would I create their character arcs?  I kept the concept in the back of my mind, but I didn’t know how or where to start.
