Dames in the Wild

Dames in the Wild

Karen Mahoney is a sweetie!  She’s sending me Dame photos from the Romantic Times Convention as she gets them, so I thought I’d share some of them. (Yeah, there are a few that shall stay in the Deadline Dame vault. heh heh) This is Rachel Vincent, Miriam Kriss (also my agent) and Karen Mahoney. Dames Jackie Kessler […]

New Single-Great Writing Music and a ...

New Single-Great Writing Music and a Thanks

Break of Reality’s new single released today on Itunes!  You can listen to the entire song on their website here. Seriously, listen through.  It’s highly emotive, instrumental music and will inspire every creative bone in your body.  I get goosebumps about a minute in every time.  Yeah, already bought my copy of Spectrum of the […]

Show Me Some Love

Show Me Some Love

I blogged at the The Deadline Dames today!  Shared a fairly long excerpt from Dweller on the Threshold, so I’m a little nervous.  Feel free to travel over there and show me some love. <G> The last two days were filled with family things and though I did get writing done both days, I ended […]

Grey Gardens

Grey Gardens

I’m in a two week slam to finish the book and I’m a little stuck.  I have a scene that has something important. It reveals necessary background info but I’m still not happy with it.  The answer will come. It always does. So, I took a break this morning and watched sections of  the Grey […]

Primary Inversion Online

Primary Inversion Online

I did a little web exploring this morning and came across an online free version of one of my favorite books!  If it sounds familiar, I’ve written about the book on this blog  before.  This isn’t some illegal copy on a download site (I get soooo angry with people who do this! Writers need to feed […]

Break On Through

Break On Through

To the other side! Had a major, major breakthrough on the WIP last night and wrote for hours.  Then, I was too jazzed to sleep, so I turned on the TV in bed and caught The Bone Collector.  Thought I’d get sleepy since I’ve seen it so many times.  Yeah, right.  I love that movie, […]

Submission Stages

Submission Stages

Strange living with this slight rumble of anticipation at all times.  It’s a mixed bag, this feeling.  Powerful at times–kind of like living with a separate entity. And it’s a moody MUTHER.  One minute, hopeful, then next, contemplative and then it just flat out throws an inner tantrum that can suck up all your energy, leaving you empty and tired.  […]

Shared Sense of Humor

Shared Sense of Humor

My daughter sent me this tonight. I laughed soooooo much.  I’ve raised her to have the same sense of humor. Cool.

Tired and a Little Goofy

Tired and a Little Goofy

Not too fond of Fridays these days, so I found myself in need of a little inspiration.  Possibly because I’m tired.  I stayed up most of the night to make sure the fires raging through my state didn’t come this way.  And when I let myself think about the people who lost their homes last […]

Readers on Deadline

I put up the winner to the first Readers on Deadline at The Deadline Dames  and offered up the new image for the next writing challenge. It’s an excellent piece by artist, Darren M. Boudreau.  So visit me at the Dames today!
