Since we all are- or should be- practicing good social distancing and staying home as much as possible, some of us may find ourselves with more time to catch up on our reading. To support this, Smashwords is currently running an Authors Give Back promotion to encourage people to read more, and maybe find some … Continue reading Wednesday Win (For You)
(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 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!

Six of One: A Collection of Short Fantasy: Just what it says, six short fantasy stories. Elves, mermaids, unfriendly frogs, wizards and more. … Continue reading Half Price Sale On Now

To celebrate, I have set up a coupon discount on Smashwords that will let you get this one free until January 20, when the third … Continue reading Friday Festivities: Snake’s Alive Cover Redesign, and a Couple of Promotions
If you are a writer, you probably have at least heard about National Novel Writing Month. For the non-writers and others who may not know, NaNoWriMo (as it is known) occurs during the month of November. The idea is to start on November 1 and by the end of the month, write a 50,000 word … Continue reading Wednesday On Writing: NaNoWriMo and You
Oh, yes, the annual frenzy of National Novel Writing Month has begun. Yes, I am participating this year, but not for writing a novel. I am using this month to keep me focused on developing an idea I had for a YA fantasy. There will be writing done. There has already been some. But I … Continue reading Monday Musings: NaNoWriMo is Upon Us
