About Starr Sayles The Author

Featured

I am a mother, grandmother and a great-grandmother. I love to read, cook and play “World of Warcraft”.

I love Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Myths, and Legends. Through in some murder, suspense, and gratuitous sex and there you have a good read.

I was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1948. We moved to Pennsylvania and I graduated Farrell High School in 1966.

I took Business Management at Kent State, Graphic Arts at Bellevue University, and I am studying, History, Classical Literature and Government at Hillsdale University.

My favorite quotes are below;

“The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in, shock-proof shit detector.” — Ernst Hemingway.

“We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.”

Ernest Hemingway

Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a prominent American sociologist, novelist, writer of short stories, poetry, and nonfiction, and a lecturer for social reform. She was a utopian feminist during a time when her accomplishments were exceptional for women, and she served as a role model for future generations of feminists because of her unorthodox concepts and lifestyle. Her best-remembered

Writing & Becoming An Overnight Success

Writing & Money

Don’t think you will get rich off writing your first book. No matter what you have been reading, the odds are:

3 out of 10,00, and that is in Children’s books alone.

Is there hope, always. Harry Potter was no overnight series. The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings also weren’t either. Hard work and not giving up matter the most. Most famous authors except for a rare few, have not had overnight success, it just may seem that way from another writer’s view. Most readers also, don’t grasp the odds of an overnight success.

I only wrote this short blog, because of all the books saying you can become a writer, making a decent living writing books. I read a book on how to become a writer, even if you hate to write. Why would you want to write a book, if you hate to write? Writing should be more about passion, than money. Self-help books don’t really fall into overnight success either, and wouldn’t you want to write a self-help book on an issue dear to your heart. Yes, we all need and want to make money, but face it, not everyone is overnight.I see as I look at the ” Self Help ” selections for making easy money, that for some reason they are on the free list. { This observation is for Kindle ebooks. }

So when you read that book telling you how fast you can make the “big bucks” look into the real statistics. This can be applied to “courses” as well. Sure the person who makes the course makes money but does it really help you? Do your due diligence, before you buy.

Love all, Starr

Writing, Book Covers & Story Pictures

Been busy writing and editing. Some of the “Lillith” story may seem different, but really it is just rearranged some. I am still having trouble with a “Book Cover”. I don’t like most of the ones I have come up with. I have more story-line pictures to do but they seem a bit easier than the “Book Cover”, issue.

I do so enjoy writing “Twisted Myths & Legends”, short stories can pop up in the mind so easily. It looks as though two weeks to finish ” Twisted Myths & Legends”, keeping to the timing for release on target.

I have been working on a full -length novel, but it will be a while before I can give sneak peaks of that. I look to have the novel come out in about 3 or 4 months.

signing off for now!!!!!!
