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 – I’ve been up, down, all around…

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…]

So…life took a couple of turns for me last week. I turned the first book in the new Play Dates (Kensington/Lyrical 2017-2018) series in to my editor, and, I turned in my two-week notice at the day job. While I’d love to say I’ll be writing for a living, that’s not the case…yet. What it came [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – Missing you

Posted on Feb 6, 2017 by   7 Comments | Posted in Blog

I wrote the big mother/daughter relationship post last week because I knew I couldn’t do it this week. Today, I don’t want to dissect my relationship with my mother. I just miss her. This is the rough week. On February 8th of last year, we lost Jewels’ mom and our friend, Joyce. My dad passed away on February [Read more…]
