By Jennifer Bowen on Thursday, May 26th, 2016 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

So, I’m sitting here…ten days in and I am sweating. My mind is jumbled, my heart is racing and I have to remind myself to breathe. What has me so tied up? I am in the midst of a 100 days project and I have writers block. We’ve all heard of Morning Pages and 30-60-90 […]

By Jennifer Bowen on Saturday, January 30th, 2016 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

My mother met Kate Waite last year and first told me about her inspirational story which resulted in her writing the book Beauty Unfolding which was published by Morgan James last year.

Hooking Readers: The First Ten Pages of Your Book

By Jennifer Bowen on Monday, December 7th, 2015 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

The first ten pages of your book is hard. You have to accomplish a lot. For most of the books I’ve tested through BookHive, I’ve seen responses of indifference or even dislike of most people’s first ten pages from our beta readers. And these could have even been books they liked overall. I have also […]


Author Writers Groups: Critique and Support

By Jennifer Bowen on Monday, November 2nd, 2015 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

I recently did one of my 60 second Author Tip videos on the subject of Writers Groups, but thought it needed even a little more time. Of the writers I’ve worked with through BookHive, I’d say most didn’t work with a Writers Group. At first I found that surprising. But perhaps because of my background […]


October Author-of-the-Month Steven Mayfield: Delphic Oracle U.S.A.

By Jennifer Bowen on Friday, October 30th, 2015 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

I met Steven Mayfield last year at the San Francisco Writers Conference (a great one to attend, seriously) and tested his book Delphic Oracle U.S.A. a few months later with our beta readers. His storytelling was a standout for interweaving multiple storylines and creating a world that was both familiar and mysterious. Check out as […]


How To Get A Book Published

By Jennifer Bowen on Thursday, September 17th, 2015 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

How do you get a book published? One imperative: make sure those first ten pages hook readers. Seems Dr. Obvious, I know. But it’s not so easy. First, if we are writing alone on our writer island, we can lose perspective. I’m sure you love your main character or characters, but after edits and drafts […]
