Wine Batch Done!

Wine Batch Done!

I bottled the Cabernet today. The entire process of making wine from a kit is complete with pictures. Click on the hobby link above to see. (Oh, my LJ readers can click here. ) Next up is Pomegranate Zinfandel and possibly a Malbec if they have it. I should check. Yum. 😉

Crashing Computers and Loving Your He...

Crashing Computers and Loving Your Hero

Was waylaid last week so I spent the weekend brushing up on my Norse young adult and then got so into the world, I ended up hand writing scenes for book two. My computer did its usual and crashed, so I had to wipe it. I’m having to revert to factory condition at least once a month […]

Where’s The Party?

My critique partner and friend, Rachel Vincent, and my friend, Gena Showalter, are joining authors  Susan Mallery, Carla Neggers, and Emilie Richards for a tour on the… here it comes…    LOVE BUS!

What’s Up With Me?

What’s Up With Me?

Good stuff and bad stuff, but the spirits are high. 🙂 I’ve been working very hard to change an old completed romantic suspense into a paranormal romantic suspense.  Yes, in addition to my other two projects. But, my husband asked me to pull the old ones back out-that maybe I could polish them up fast […]

All Is Well

All Is Well

Lots of people checking in with us today. Yes, our town was the one hit the hardest by the floods, but we got off easy. No damage to our house and the light flooding in the garage didn’t hurt anything. We’re pumping the new pond in backyard away just in case the rain comes back […]

Sunday Positive Thought

Sunday Positive Thought

How cool would it be for my Norse YA books to start hitting shelves around the time the Thor movie came out next year? With the way publishing works, we might be hitting it awfully close–but it could happen. 😉

To Follow or Not to Follow

To Follow or Not to Follow

I’ve seen the question of following agents and editors online–about whether or not it‘s a good idea. We have blogs, publisher websites, Twitter.  Gone are the days when editors were bodiless entities somewhere out there in Publisher Land. So, I’ll share. There is good and bad to consider. First, you better be ready to hear things […]

Summer Camp

I signed up to participate in Kaz’s Writing Summer Camp. My goal is a complete first draft of the adult UF by the end of summer and have a solid working outline and three chapters on the YA. I may add a short story in there as well. I miss the faster turn around of my […]
