"Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away… Now it looks as though they're here to stay. Oh, I believe in yesterday…"
With all due respect to Paul McCartney, I prefer to believe in Today. Even better, I want to believe in Tomorrow. Every word I type in the present is transported into a magical future, which is still yet a dream. The essay I'm composing will be read tomorrow or Monday or maybe next Friday. My WIP will take months to finish and weeks more… Continue

Hello my friends, I have just received this professional review on my lastest manuscript.
I must state that this reviewer does not know me, has never spoken or written to me and she was completely unbiased in her review.
A professional review
“Find a soft spot to land on”
“Find a soft spot to land on” is the life story of a troubled man: his struggle to find himself a place in… Continue

Today's list was copied pretty much verbatim from our organizational wiki. They're characters whose stories we have written or are currently writing (Except for Adam, who shows up because his brother is getting his story told.) The shorthand notation after their names is usually their basic character concept. As you can probably tell, we like quirky characters. (Too bad the vampire who strips to pay her way through accounting school didn't make the… Continue

The second installment of Faking Human has been uploaded to the website: The Unfortunate Flirting Incident
The current plan is to release several more chapters of Faking Human before releasing the complete series as a PDF file. If that goes well, we'll be following it up with a second mini-serial, one focusing on the hero of Moonshine. Together they will make up a prequel… Continue

"Sherwood Charade is an absolutely intriguing twist on the old Robin Hood classic. You will find in Sherwood Charade a well-written story with exceptional characters bringing their colorful personalities to the forefront. It captures your attention from the beginning. Twists and turns keep you hanging on until the last word. Ms. Riser sends you on a thrilling mind vacation that you will not soon forget. I highly recommend this new read by Ms. Riser." ~Matilda for… Continue

I’ve been agonizing over my third book for quite some time, making exceedingly little progress since Recruit’s release last year. Going through all my notes and ideas for the key events that need to take place merely made the gears in my brain to squeal and eventually grind to a halt. They all seemed to clash against each other, rather than falling into place in a timeline of some sort.
Then I realized I was tring to plot three separate novels. I had plots and conflicts strong enough… Continue

"The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn."
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
The power inherent within a single idea is breathtaking. Every life-changing invention, every rousing song, every exquisite work of art and every heartfelt book began with a single idea.
Yet the work involved to pushing that idea to fruition is daunting. We're starting with a barren field! The dirt must be overturned, then sifted through for weeds and rocks. Fertilizer must be applied. Seeds… Continue

At the moment my autobiography is with a publisher who I presume is considering its worth in this highly competitive commercial literary market.
As yet I have not had a review on this manuscript and to be honest I'm not sure if there is a space in the market for it, but one can only try.
For anyone interested, here is the synopsis.

Wow, I'm a few weeks behind with this. March has been a busy month for both of us. Last weekend one of our dear friends got married, and all of the excitement around that has thrown off our schedule a little. We're also in the middle of HEAVY extensive edits on Without Borders
and The Family Legend
. We've learned an awful lot since we wrote those two stories, so we're making the pages bleed a little. (Or a lot. Don't believe me?… Continue
