Happy September everyone! I'm someone who adores the fall. Yes, I'm drinking pumpkin spice coffee already. LOL. Give me days with crisp air, leaves on the ground, and cozy sweaters! I bought myself a sweater while in Scotland that I plan to practically live in for the next six months. To celebrate the coming change, … Continue reading I’ve got a guest!
And I’m home again
Hey everyone! If you read my last post, you know I recently did something I can't remember not wanting to do. I took a page from Bilbo Baggins and went on an adventure. Today, I came home again at last. The plane ride happened last Friday. I've technically been home for almost a week. But … Continue reading And I’m home again
Finding peace in chaos
Hey everyone! Yes, I know it's been a while since I posted here. As per normal, life happened. This was a good thing, though. I've touched on this before, how the last 2 -3 years of my life have been chaotic. Too many things to list, and most weren't good. Death came to visit far … Continue reading Finding peace in chaos
Time to check your author privilege
Hey everyone! No, I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth. Life has been, well, life. One of the things I've found most interesting lately is the whole 'cockygate' situation. You know what it breaks down to? Someone who was so totally insecure about their own writing that they chose to not do the … Continue reading Time to check your author privilege
Yes, we can
I know, it's been a while. Not just for my blog, but writing in general. Life has a way of doing that. On Friday night, the hubby and I headed to a baseball game. We'd planned to take our youngest, but he got sick. So, I offered the ticket to a friend of mine. She … Continue reading Yes, we can
Celebrating a milestone
Ten years ago, I wasn't writing. I still listened to the voice in my head that said I would never do anything close to good enough for a publisher, so it wasn't worth trying. And so my muse stayed quiet, locked in her cage. We'd been playing in a Dungeons and Dragons game for over … Continue reading Celebrating a milestone
Let’s talk business
Happy New Year! Took last week off for the holiday, head back to work tomorrow, but I'm more relaxed now. Update for those of you who read my books! 'Guarding Amber' is done with editing! I hope to have it up for sale before mid-January. It's my 20th title, which amazes me. I want to … Continue reading Let’s talk business
Inspiration isn’t enough
Hey everyone! It's gearing up to be a super busy weekend. 6 days until we see the new 'Star Wars' movie! Yeah, that's my fandom of choice. We can discuss that another time, though. Everyone talks about being creative, finding inspiration from the things around them. You can read countless stories on social media about … Continue reading Inspiration isn’t enough
Stop the excuses!
Hey everyone! Really glad right now that there's no video involved with this blog. LOL. Just got finished with some time on my bike, and I'm a hot, sweaty mess. LOL. While I was pedaling, I reminded myself that I don't like to live my life by excuses. Not with my weight any more. In … Continue reading Stop the excuses!
On awards, honors, and disappointment
Hey everyone! So, the Whole Life Activation awards were this past Friday. While I was deeply honored to be on the short list, another author won. I have no doubt that she is talented and deserving of the honor. And, despite all of you that voted for the cover for 'Guarding Charon', it didn't even … Continue reading On awards, honors, and disappointment
