Official Release Day!

Official Release Day!

   Despite early Stray sightings, the official release date is here!!!  Okay, technically, it’s June 1st, but I don’t care!  It’s out and I’m so excited for her!  Check out Rachel Vincent’s debut book.  Faythe Sanders likes to pretend she’s a normal college co-ed, but that’s only half the truth. It’s the other half that […]

Monday Poetry Train/A Man Like Any Other

  A Man Like Any Other   He closes eyes made gritty By stolen hours of sleep.     He=s solid only–in realms     Of shadows and unspoken despair. He blindly reaches out To grasp what he cannot see, To find purchase in another night Spent upright, in a lone kitchen chair.   To the outside […]

Stray Sighting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stray Sighting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My CP’s book, Stray, has been sighted at the local Barnes and Noble!!!!  It’s early!  Okay, I had a couple of emails asking about this book and I thought I’d chime in with the fact that Rachel and I didn’t work together on this one.  I came in on book three in the Werecat series and in the […]

Store Snark

Celise asked if I would put the Story design on posters and I thought that was an excellent idea.  So, I spent the morning creating some new designs with that inspiring message.  TIP:I learned that it’s better to do JPG graphics on these bigger sized images.  Had all kinds of trouble trying to create, manipulate […]

Living In A Fog

Living In A Fog

I can smell another spring storm on the wind. Threads of cool air have hitched a ride with the fierce humid wind and it feels good to stand outside with my eyes closed and my hair whipping around my face. I keep taking long, deep breaths–hoping not only to chase away the stale, overworked, office air […]

Words So True

“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise.  The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”                      ~Sylvia Plath

Monday Poetry Train/Self-Appointed Paragon

To those who have been with me since the beginning, this will be familiar.  But I’ve always kind of liked this one, so I thought I’d post it again for the Poetry Train passengers. 🙂    Self-Appointed Paragon      She lords it over every gathering As if hers is the example to uphold. She speaks with fat […]

Who You Lookin’ At?

Who You Lookin’ At?

I’m messing with my theme.  No, dirty mind, not that one.  Thought I could use a new look–or an old one in this case.  And those big eyes?  Mine.  And yeah, they can see you…

Okay, I’ve gone on and on about how the rewrite stage is my favorite.  I’m officially past the halfway mark in my book and my plan is to be done by the end of May.  (Not sure why I pick the most difficult kid/school month to do these things, but I never seem to pick […]

I’ve been tagged a few times and while I loved getting the thinking blogger award from Heather, I’m having trouble putting together five of my favorite thinking blogs–simply because most of them have already been tagged.  She’s one of them–I love Weekend Zen! 🙂 But I can do this one from Lyn. Eight Random Facts […]
