Life as a Student Author | Dakota Caldwell

Life as a Student Author | Dakota Caldwell

Authors. Of all the careers in the world (with maybe the exception of the pope and deep space explorers), this particular profession elicits more mystery, reverence, and respect than any other. I mean, when someone asks you what you’re doing, tell them that you’re writing a book. Watch their reactions and tell me if I’m

Getting romance right

Getting romance right

It’s Valentine’s Day, so bring forth the obligatory love-centric posts, right? I don’t know about you, but I’m in the camp where when I’m reading or watching a movie and I see good things happening, birds singing, and especially main characters falling in love, I get suspicious.

When Crying’s A Good Thing

When Crying’s A Good Thing

A fellow writer recently asked a group of us (also writers), “When you read a book or watch a movie, what moments in those works make you Ugly Cry?” We’re not talking a solitary tear rolling down your cheek. Oh, no. We’re looking for what makes you bawl like a toddler who’s just been informed

I hope you enjoy. (Feat. photo credit: Gretchen Kuykendall Engel) When I mention Realm Makers to folks, they always ask me what it

2016 TPA Conference: The Joy in Coming Full Circle

We don’t talk a lot about homeschooling here, and we probably should, since all the founders of Crosshair Press actually were homeschooled. And not just for a year or two. Not just for elementary ages. Actually, of the four of us, I’m the odd one in that I attended a private school in Houston for

2015: The Year in Review

2015: The Year in Review

The trouble with driven, forward-thinking people is that they rarely take the time to look back. The past is the past, and it’s better left behind. In some cases, that’s true, but if we neglect to look back on what we’ve learned, we are destined to repeat mistakes. Not only that, but if we don’t take
