The Length of Ten Years


“Women loved him, men wanted to be him..”

A line I wrote for my brother’s eulogy, March 17, 2008.

Ten years have passed since my brother died suddenly, and yet I cannot believe I’ve lived ten years of my life without him. You never come out the same way you went in when something like this happens. Time does make it infinitely easier. The sharpness is rarely experienced now, and the photos and memories make me laugh even more than I cry. But time also feels like an elastic band stretched too far or snapped abruptly and made short. It hasn’t been linear or chronological, but more like the jerking motion of a wooden roller coaster that sometimes goes backwards. The moments that take my breath away happen far less frequently and are always unexpected, but I know how to get through them now.

Moist and tender and other words that make me cringe.

Rosanna Leo

I think every writer has them, those words that make us want to lob a dictionary at the speaker of said words.

Let me get mine out of the way immediately so I don’t have to think about them again.

Moist. Oh, how I despise this word. I don’t know why. It’s a perfectly good word. It conveys information just as well as any other word. And yet something about the way the “o” squishes up against the “i” makes me want to grimace. Let’s say it together. “Moist.” Isn’t it awful? Sadly, in romance, this word comes in very handy. However, in life, I try never to use it. Blech.

Tender. Again, another word that works well in many situations. Nothing wrong with it and yet it makes the hairs on my arms stand on end. I don’t mind “tenderness” and use it often, but “tender” sets me on…

FREE Book Publicity Guide for Authors

Christa Wojciechowski


Hello all. A few months ago on Twitter, I posted a poll asking authors what their biggest challenge was in marketing their books. The most popular answer was “how to stand out from the crowd.”

As a self-published author who helps other indie authors, I know how difficult is is to be seen in heard in the swarm of books flooding the market today. Hiring a PR firm can cost thousands of dollars. That’s why I created this quick guide to help you plan publicity campaigns that will get you noticed.

Feel free to pass it along to all your author friends. I firmly believe there is an audience for every book. You just need to put yourself out there so they can find you!
