Critters and the such

January 24, 2018

Among a few of the books on my in-progress shelf is a project I initially began especially for my daughter; in a previous post, I mentioned how we both enjoy a decent fantasy story which doesn't include magical shenanigans or wizards, that sort of action. Do you have any idea how difficult it is finding a book fitting that criteria? Got to thinking about it and figured the best way to find such a story would be creating it myself!

The general outline is kinda sorta maybe almost complete (you know how we authors are constantly rearranging and editing right up to that last second when we reluctantly press the publish button-and even then, we wonder if we should have changed this or that).

Here's the thing: this story is designed to include wacky, unheard of, strange critters from depths of who-knows-where, but I haven't visited the depths of the earth yet!

Here's where my readers come into the situation: if you have the details of some odd, weird, wacky critter (land, water or tree varieties-All shapes and sizes will be considered), your input would be ever so appreciated for this project. Just comment or email me with your vast knowledge and educate me!

Here's what you get for your effort: 1) If your critter is makes the final cut, (several characters will be chosen) your name, along with the critter, will be mentioned in that cool front page where authors thank all the nifty people who helped them 2) You get to name the story character 3) You will receive a free digital copy of the book once it has been published.

So whaddaya say? Get those thinking caps on and hit me with all your awesomeness! If you would prefer keeping your input top secret, here's how to contact me: theoneampen @ robynleatherman . com



A few of my paper beads

January 18, 2018
Last week’s post promised a little peep into my corner of this whole paper beading frenzy.

Once you begin really getting into this hobby, you'll see there are several different methods, but the process with any of them is fairly simple. Time consuming, but simple. And addictive. 

Paper beads can be made from just about any material, seriously. Scrapbook paper is almost always on sale at Hobby Lobby for half price. Normally, it only costs 44 cents per sheet, so half off is a huge bargain! (Cut...

New Good Reads Challenge Already?

January 10, 2018
The Good Reads 2018 Reading Challenge is live! Wahoozooles and cue the confetti! 

Kinda hard to believe it's time to line up our reading material for the next 365 days, but here we are, gang! What is everyone thinking about reading this time around? Anyone joining niche challenges this year?

A couple of years ago, I joined about 5 reading challenges, believing most would overlap, so it would be super easy to end the year looking like a superstar. Did not work that way at all and I failed big ti...

First post of 2018

January 2, 2018
As promised a couple of weeks ago, my blog is up and running again; a hearty round of appreciation to all my readers for hanging in there with me and having faith this gal would return; be assured my absence doesn't equal a lack of the pen scribbling out more words for you to read!

One of the things which took me away from blogging regularly, ironically enough, was paper.

Not ordinary paper, though. Not the copier paper variety, anyway. Cause I never do things in the ordinary way, right?

Yours t...

Still Alive!

December 17, 2017
I have been alerted to the fact that a crazy rumor has gotten around telling people I don't even speak with as well as personal  friends of mine that I am dead. I know who started this rumor. 

Although it is true that I took off some time from my weekly blog, I assure everyone I am absolutely alive and kicking! 

In fact, I will explain a lot in my next post, which is scheduled to get back into the swing of things beginning the first Wednesday of 2018; that will be on the 3rd, for those of you w...

Free Content

April 30, 2015
Today's society is, as Shrek phrased it, like an onion: we find so many layers in the whole concept of digital content that sometimes the lines become a bit blurred.

On one hand, authors and musicians alike, have valid reasons for giving our work away for free. We enjoy what we do, to begin with, and love sharing it with others! Sometimes a freebie is a great way to drum up some attention to a new release or celebrate a milestone marker in our career. I've even given away copies of an e-book t...

My First Month on Wattpad

March 31, 2015

I'm one month in the door and the world of Wattpad hasn't been nearly as scary as I'd anticipated it being! Now I'm actually wondering why I didn't take the advice of my daughter and start posting my work on the site last year.

By jumping in there and posting my intention to post a new part to my stories each and every Wednesday for the duration of one full year, it's has been a great motivating force for me. Hand in hand with that is the fact that I've gotten back into my regular routine of ...

Interview with Lindsay Kayser, My Personal Cover Artist

March 11, 2015
*Taps microphone*

Congratulations, my fellow authors! Now that you've finished writing that manuscript, completed those edits, and are excited to publish ... what's that, you say? You still haven't been able to land a great cover for all those beautifully-placed words to snuggle in between?

Not a problem!

Hang around for a few minutes and allow me to introduce you to a person who has been instrumental in my own writing career: my personal cover artist! (Yes, I'll share - but promise to return he...

Interview with Kim Diehl, Wattpad Writer

March 4, 2015

Because it's important to me that I support for the person who encouraged me to join the Wattpad community in the first place, I'd like to introduce her to all my readers so you can get to know her and become familiar with her writing, as well.

*The spotlight swishes back and forth, trumpets usher in our guest as she is escorted down the red carpet in a sparkly horse-drawn carriage*

Robyn: It tickles me to have you stop by the interview booth today, Kim! Thanks for taking time to answer this lo...

Introducing ... Me On Wattpad!

February 26, 2015

As some of you may already know, I like writing historical fiction.

Reflecting on people who have come and gone and the lives they led, what they must have thought or gone through, I can't believe these people should simply disappear without anyone remembering them. There has to be some portion about every person that deserves a story, even if it's a small or simple one.

That said, I would like to embrace my own heritage of Native American (I'm Cherokee) and bring out small snippets of storie...
