Hello and welcome. You can take a quiz to find your perfect Jane Austen leading man, get good stuff in my newsletter (sign-up just to the right), and learn a new skill. Do you know how to fold a Prince of Wales napkin? Here’s how!
If you’re wondering about the pic of Steve Harvey and me, I was on The Steve Harvey Show in 2014 to talk about my writing and charity, Girls Love Mail. I’ve never worn so much makeup! After hours of prepping, they sat me in front of a live audience to wait for the man himself. I was so nervous that when he arrived and asked my name, I said, “I’m Gina. And you are?”
What a rush to make a comedian laugh. He actually turned to the audience and launched into a hilarious monologue about being mistaken for Al Roker. The interview went well, and Mr. Harvey is very nice. Watch the interview now, complete with a surprise guest. Is it obvious I can barely see through the layers of mascara?!
You can take a moment to explore, learn, and hopefully buy a book. Watch for blog posts and sign up for my newsletter for fun information about history and writing. For you aspiring writers, I love sharing what I’ve learned. For example, try “layer editing,” or editing for one specific issue, say dialogue, at a pass. Writing is editing.
