Update and THOR!!

Update and THOR!!

We’re keeping a steady stream of pictures from the Romantic Times Convention on The Deadline Dames. Posting several times a day and some funnier ones are slipping in… I’m not in any because I’m stuck at home. 🙁 But enough whining! I am writing-finally broke through a difficult scene last night and how could I […]

Fun Convention Pics

I slapped up some photos from the Romantic Times Convention and a couple of sad faces, moi included, from those Dames who couldn’t go this year. The pic of Kaz cracks me up! Follow the Dame to see! Psst-there are rumors of the T-shirt I’m wearing being available at RT. It’s just a rumor, so […]

The Fever & Shout to The Dames and Miriam!

I love it when the writing FEVER settles in. I went to bed scribbling in a notebook and awakened only to reach for it. Last night, I also watched the disappointing Thunder/Lakers game–okay, I didn’t make it to the end–but Thunder was trailing by 30 points, so I went to bed.  But I was writing […]

Weekend Present!

Weekend Present!

Yes, it’s blurry. I can’t find a camera and my phone camera could use something. But look!!!  It’s the British version, so the spellings are different. Words like favor are favour, program is programme, etc.  There was one I didn’t know about, so it’s cool to see the differences in our spelling. The one?  Forever […]

Sharing Love for Books w/My Daughter

Sharing Love for Books w/My Daughter

Still here, still plugging away on new book. Part of my mind is on my Norse trilogy and how it’s doing out there in Submission World.  I want this trilogy to find a loving home so much, I alternate moods like you wouldn’t believe. One day anticipation burns in my gut and the next worry…this […]

Teaser at The Deadline Dames Today

Teaser at The Deadline Dames Today

I posted a very short snippet of FORETOLD at the Deadline Dames today. Very short, but kind of sexy.  As usual, follow the Dame. 🙂

Slow: Worldbuilder Playing

Slow: Worldbuilder Playing

My word count will be sluggish a few days. I needed more worldbuilding time. When writing a book set in the future, there are so many things to take into account. Food, clothing, society, government, population, medicines… My urge is to burn my way through without the base work because the story is alive, the […]

Computer Scare and Strange Video

Computer Scare and Strange Video

Yesterday, the word goal was derailed by a computer virus scare.  I downloaded several good programs, but they didn’t find anything. I did get a bad email and not long after, that warning on IE started showing up–you know the one. “Your PC is infected, download this blah blah blah!”  I know better than to […]

Unnatural Selection (New YA series WIP)

I’m getting a dystopian young adult proposal together for my agent, so I will be writing like crazy the next couple of weeks. Not only do I plan to turn in a proposal, but I’m starting an official word count for this book.  This means I’m writing through to the end. I have more written on the […]

Crazy Weekend!

Crazy Weekend!

First the desktop computer started rebooting every two minutes. (Actually, this part was months ago.) I hurriedly copied all music, pics and documents onto an external drive the hubby uses for work.  He recently had to turn that drive in, so I copied all the files to my laptop. After all, it had recently crashed […]
