  • 24 hours left of the Hive’s Spring Writers Retreat in Reedsburg Wisconsin, and I choose to work on my website. Except it has been so long I both don’t remember what I am doing and WordPress has changed just a bit…or maybe it’s my memory? The last few years have seen Covid strike my family…

  • So what has been happening that has kept Sue away from her author site for so long and just where is that book she promised? Ha! As a newbie book author I have learned things, and one of the mistakes I made meant I had to completely re-work our final edits as I did them…

    Choosing to use my own name for the SF and Fantasy work means that sometimes I’ll be writing blogs as Susan Kovacs Author Page and sometimes here as Susan Wachowski, but know that’s me, open and honest as usual, on both sides.  But the websites, blogs, podcasts and infomercials for writers, well they all tell…
