Posted on Sep 25, 2017 by   14 Comments | Posted in Blog

This week, I have a guest star on my blog…literary agent Sara Megibow! *cheers* *applause *lets loose with one of those those piercing whistles that make people cringe* Sara did a fabulous interview with another one of her clients, Emmie Mears, about what happens once an author signs with an agent. Not long after that, [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – A blog about blogs

Posted on Sep 11, 2017 by   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…]

Monday Mayhem – Joy Thievery

Posted on Aug 28, 2017 by   6 Comments | Posted in Blog

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. People rarely come out feeling better about themselves or their accomplishments when they hold them up against someone else’s. We tend to stop and look around when we [Read more…]

…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 – 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 – 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…]
