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 – 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…]

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…

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…]

Monday Mayhem – Fresh Starts

I’m still working on finishing the draft of Easy Bake Lovin’ (Play Dates #2), but with the start of the Build a Book 365 day challenge I gave myself permission to play with one of the Silver Fox ideas I have rattling around in my head. Meet Leonardo Sbaraglia. He doesn’t know it, but he’s currently [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – The heart of the matter

Posted on Jan 2, 2017 by   12 Comments | Posted in Blog

Welcome 2017! I’m making an effort to start the new year off with positivity. So far, it’s been pretty easy since I’ve been in my favorite place (home), with my favorite person (Fodder), doing my favorite things (a little writing, a little reading, making some chicken salad, taking a nap). I’m really good at napping. And, [Read more…]

So yeah, busy, busy week! Received first round edits on A BOLT FROM THE BLUE from editor and she LOVED it! Yay! Always such a relief. Particularly this time, because I had to turn this story around so quickly. The only other person who has seen it is Jewels, and we all know she’ll say [Read more…]
