(Those of you not in the USA or who are not football fans can skip the first paragraph.) This was kind of a weird weekend. We didn't watch any football on Sunday. It was the Pro Bowl, and honestly, we gave up watching that one a few years ago. It's just a big media foofra … Continue reading Monday Musings: Games, Poke, a Groundhog, Writing, and a Book for You
I have been feeling a bit lost since the beginning of the year. I took some time off of my usual writing schedule over the holidays, and after the New Year, I had my release of The Demon's in the Details to deal with, and that added to the time away from actual writing. Now that … Continue reading What’s Up These Days?
The Demon's in the Details: The Yo-Yo Files #3 is now available at most e-book retailers. I think it still has to show up on a couple, but the major ones do have it available for purchase today. I have all the info and links that are live now on the book's page. I was happy … Continue reading And It’s Live!

With The Demon's in the Details: The Yo-Yo Files #3 becoming available on January 20 (Eek! That's next week, isn't it?), I thought maybe I would post a little excerpt from the story. This one is centered more on Cerise, and gives us a look at her backstory. It also let me play around with the … Continue reading MidWeek Sneak: Peek, That Is
I am sitting here in my living room, with windows open and the outdoor temperature is 65 degrees F. I checked the calendar. Yep, it's January 11. We were supposed to have rain along with the warm temps, but that seems to have passed us by in favor of sun and clouds. It is supposed … Continue reading Monday Musings: So, This is January, Right?

I have no idea why this year is starting off so slowly. Normally, I don't have trouble jumping back into gear after taking some time off, but this year, the holiday break seems to have taken all the wind out of my sails. I think I will just have to force myself to plunge in … Continue reading Wednesday Waffling: Post Holiday and Trying to Get Back in Gear- And Cover Reveal!
Every year, I set a number of books to read goal. If I make that goal, I add one in the next year. In 2019, my goal was 29 books. I fell short by six books so the goal for 2020 will remain at 29. I am not the fastest reader in the world and … Continue reading Friday Review: My 2019 Reading in Reveiw
It seems odd to think that with this New Year, we are moving into a new decade. Not that this is the first time that has happened to me, of course. I am have seen a few decades come and go along the way to 2020. It feels different this time, somehow. Maybe it's partly … Continue reading 2020: Out With the Old, In With the New
