My friend Paty Jager shares her fact-based premise for her Christmas novella Christmas Redemption. It’s fascinating how essential genuine history can be to quality fiction. Paty’s story is part of the Silver Belles and Stetsons Cowboy Christmas Anthology.

Pioneer Hearts Facebook Group is a delightful connection for READERS and AUTHORS of Historical Western Historical Romance. We talk about books we’re reading (in the genre), new releases, ideas about the American West, and so much more. It’s the best parts of a book club, calling a friend, meeting a favored author, subscribing to a service for the best news about new books, all rolled into a tidy FB group I can visit whenever the mood strikes.
Authors (and their writing methods) are as unique in their methods as in their fingerprints.
Beginning writers may study books, attend courses, learn from highly successful authors in one way or another, but eventually–through trial and error–they’ll figure out what works for them. There are no right ways, no magic bullets, no fantastic formulas, just as there are no wrong ways. Just as we all might set out from Atlanta, destination, Chicago–we’ll all get there taking a variety of personally selected routes. We’ll fly. Or drive. Take the interstate or back roads. Some will push through with 16 hour days, while others spend more time visiting stops along the way and arrive much later. Nothing wrong with any of it.
Given authors are individual about the process they use to create a book, I want to share my own methods–in case it piques your curiosity. In this Part 1 of a 2-part blog article, I’ll share the first half of my process: Branding, Software (Scrivener), Ideas are Everywhere, and 7-Point Story Structure.
