    Homework Trouble With Christmas Cheer Synopsis

    Thanks for all your feedback. I really hadn't considered the ghost/supernatural angle but I think I can definitely work that in. As for the murder mystery dinner, it becomes more of a subplot, right? I just didn't know where to put it in the synopsis.

    Hi all! I'm April and I write romance, cozy mystery, and romantic mystery. Do you sense a theme? :) Like Dawn, I "cut my teeth" on Johanna Lindsay and Jude Devereaux, even going so far as handing off the book to my besties after every chapter so we could all be on the same page (quite...

    Ugh. I missed it again! I thought the invite converted the time to PST but it didn't and I thought it meant 2 pm PST, not CST.

    Friday at 4:30 PM Pacific is fine with me but I'll have to leave at 5:30 pm to make dinner for the family. If we meet on Saturday, I can't meet after 2 pm PST. Anytime before that is fine though.

    Homework Trad Question

    I think you should place the story in the setting that makes the most sense to you, the author, and the storyteller, as I truly believe that readers can tell if the writing is passionate about a character and storyline. I think that, between writing to market and writing a story that makes you...

    Homework Hayman - Week 3 Homework

    I love the idea of librarians using their vast knowledge to solve crimes! It makes me wonder why it doesn't happen more often IRL, honestly. I always thought the smartest people on the planet are librarians. How else would they know about all the subjects that are in the library? I think using...

    Homework Week 2 Homework - April Hayman

    The twins were lifelong spinsters, although Sissy had at least one serious love interest in her life but never married. Probably something incredibly tragic. :) Yes, there are two deaths of other characters. The first death is of Thomas Ellis (first act somewhere) and the second death is James...

    Lecture WEEK 5: The Three-Act Outline, revisited (and a marketing book)

    I apologize for not attending the meeting on Saturday. I forgot to write a blog post for my book's cover reveal for the Ever After Mystery series (When The Pilot Falls Cover Reveal | April Hayman, Author). We're doing a blog hop (kind of) and a giveaway. If I'd paid more attention to the series'...
