Monday Mayhem – Third time is a…

Posted on Aug 21, 2017 by   4 Comments | Posted in Blog

…pain in the tuchas. I’m still working on the first draft of A RING FOR ROSIE, book 3 in the Play Dates series. Still. Forever. And ever. I just can’t seem to wrap it up. And now, 38 books into the writing career, I’m afraid I may have a book three block. I had this [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – Ask and you might possibly receive

Posted on Aug 7, 2017 by   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. The premise is that we don’t ask people, particularly our friends or family, for the things that we need. Our society values self-reliance, and often views asking for help in the [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem: Uhhhh

Posted on Jul 31, 2017 by   3 Comments | Posted in Blog

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. Yes, it’s safe to say I’ve hit the Kahn level of tired. So I’m taking the rest of July [Read more…]

Posted on Jul 17, 2017 by   6 Comments | Posted in Blog

Good morning! This blog post is brought to you today once again by the letter D. Hi! I’m here with Desdemona, my Dragon software, and I’m talking to myself again. After last week’s post, a few people have asked how it’s going, so here’s an update: I’ve been working with it all week, I’m not [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – This Magic Moment

Posted on Jun 5, 2017 by   2 Comments | Posted in Blog

I did something totally out of character for me this weekend…I lived in the moment. On Wednesday, I turned in the finished manuscript for Easy Bake Lovin’ (Play Dates #2), and then from Wednesday night ’til this minute, I haven’t even powered up my computer. Oh, it traveled to Illinois with us and back, but [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – Typecasting

Posted on Apr 24, 2017 by   4 Comments | Posted in Blog

Do you have a type? I’m working on Easy Bake Lovin’ (Play Dates #2), and one of the plot points is that the heroine is about as opposite the hero’s usual type. Their attraction stirs some not-so-subtle commentary, which, in turn, leads to hurt feelings and confusion. “Type” seems a shallow plot point on first [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – Birthing a book

Posted on Apr 17, 2017 by   3 Comments | Posted in Blog

Two weeks ago, A BOLT FROM THE BLUE released into the wild. This was a super quick labor – only about thirteen months from conception to birth. Since I am traditionally published (meaning I sell my work to a publishing house, and their team then takes over the editorial timeline and production), this can be a relatively long [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – Off to camp I go!

Posted on Apr 10, 2017 by   3 Comments | Posted in Blog

Ha! Not that kind of camp. Anyone who knows me knows that I do not sleep out of doors. Nope, I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo this month in an effort to get the writing mojo flowing. I cranked out over five thousand words this weekend! Woot! I received a visit from the cover art fairy this [Read more…]

Lightning is about to strike again! My 33rd (!) publication – A BOLT FROM THE BLUE – will be released into the wild this week. **** True love, like lightning, never strikes twice—or does it? As a free-spirited young woman, Hope Elliot was desperate to escape her snobbish high society family. So she ran off [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – I’ve been up, down, all around…

Posted on Mar 27, 2017 by   4 Comments | Posted in Blog

I’ve been feeling completely unmotivated lately. For most of this year, actually. At first, I didn’t worry about it too much. I’d finished another NaNoWriMo in November. December had been its usual whirlwind, but with the special added bonus of a software conversion and move at the day job. Then January came, and I ran [Read more…]
