Monday Mayhem – Third time is a…

Posted on Aug 21, 2017 by   3 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…]

Monday Mayhem – Discipline: The Modern Love Edition

Posted on Jul 24, 2017 by   7 Comments | Posted in Blog

For those of you who have been following my blog for the last few weeks, you’ve heard me mention Elizabeth Gilbert’s term, “the song of the disciplined halfass.” That section of her book, BIG MAGIC, really spoke to me. Not that I consider myself half-ass. In this case, she’s referring to half-assery as an alternative [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – Hunkered down on the doghouse

Posted on Jun 12, 2017 by   3 Comments | Posted in Blog

I plan to spend most of my summer doing revisions. I know that doesn’t sound like fun to many people, but it’s very exciting for me. With some fabulously constructive input from my editors, I have a chance to make this book (and every book I release) better than I originally believed it could be. But [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 – Ripples Needed, Apply Here

Posted on May 22, 2017 by   1 Comment | Posted in Blog

The Diamond State Romance Authors met this weekend. As usual, spending time with my writer friends recharged me. This month, we talked about every author’s worst nightmare – PR and publicity. Most people don’t realize that almost all book promotion falls on the author. My publisher will promote the book through their existing networks (which are admittedly [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – A trickle to a stream

Posted on May 1, 2017 by   3 Comments | Posted in Blog

There. I typed it. At last. On the piece of…book that’s been giving me fits since November. And how did I get there? By dialing back my ego, essentially shredding large parts of what I have already written for book three, and basically saying enough is enough. Is it done? Not even close. But now I [Read more…]
