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: 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…]

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.

Posted on Jul 3, 2017 by   2 Comments | Posted in Blog

Here we are in JULY. Can you believe it? Yeah, I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around it myself. Camp NaNoWriMo started 7/1/17. I’m hoping it gives me to motivation/momentum I need to finish drafting A RING FOR ROSIE (Play Dates #3). Tomorrow, we celebrate Independence Day. I’m working today and the rest [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 – 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…]
