Monday Mayhem – A blog about blogs

Posted on Sep 11, 2017 by Maggie Wells   4 Comments | Posted in Blog

As I type this (on Sunday), the state of Florida is under siege. Please know I’m praying for all those impacted by Hurricane Irma and those still coping with the aftermath of Harvey. And then, we have the anniversary of 9-11… It’s hard to think/talk about romance when it seems the world is splintering around [Read more…]

Happy Labo(u)r Day, you working stiffs (I added the U for the Canadians)! I have spent most of my long weekend not laboring, and I have to tell you, I’m pretty good at it. Fodder and I ran away to Hot Springs for a night. This is the closest you will ever see me come [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – Joy Thievery

Sadly, my favorite picture of Teddy Roosevelt has proved to be a fake. But one thing the 26th President got right was this little gem: It’s true.

Monday Mayhem – Mayhem

I can’t ramble about writing romance novels. It’s hard to think about happily ever afters when it seems everything I believe in is being challenged. I’ll try again next week. In the meantime, think peaceful thoughts and turn your face to the sunlight.

Monday Mayhem – Ask and you might possibly receive

Posted on Aug 7, 2017 by Maggie Wells   1 Comment | Posted in Blog

This week I started reading a book called THE ART OF ASKING by Amanda Palmer. It’s an interesting book – part memoir, part self-help.

So, yeah. In the last two weeks I’ve completed revisions on one manuscript, approved and completed copyedits on two others, added 15k to my WIP via dictation, and there’s a galley to proof in my inbox.
