Two boosts in one day.

1. People who remember my fanfic to this day and are actually STILL fans – and if I could write well enough to snag people eleven years ago, I can damn well do it now.

2. Beta reader I haven’t seen in a long while, upon learning I was editing Guardian: “But I like Guardian. I like it the way it is.”

Delight – and relief.

I’m going to write even better.

Life, you and I are nowhere close to done.


A three-times bestselling author, Ruthanne Reid has led a convention panel on world-building, taught courses on plot and character development, and been the keynote speaker for the Write Practice Retreat. Author of two series with five books and fifty-plus short stories, Ruthanne has lived in her head since childhood, when she wrote her first story about a pony princess and a genocidal snake-kingdom and used up her mom’s red typewriter ribbon in the process. When she isn’t reading, writing, or reading about writing, Ruthanne enjoys old cartoons with her husband and two cats, and dreams of living on an island beach far, far away. P.S. Red is still her favorite color.
