Project Done

Project Done

My rewriting project is finished. I basically let everything go and just dove into that world for the last seven days. I truly enjoy this sort of highly concentrated time. My poor body does not. Eyes, head and of all things, feet, complained. Why feet? When I get excited, I prop them on the edge […]

Miss Me?

Miss Me?

LOL! Like I’ve been gone. I am in deep rewrite mode. I’ve immersed (Yeah, I had the wrong spelling here. Do you have buzz words that trip you up? This is one of mine. <g>) myself so far into my Norse young adult world, I’m having a blast. It’s work, don’t get me wrong. I […]

Short Break

Short Break

Lovely readers, I will be going into deep rewrite mode over the next week. To keep you all amused while I’m gone, I leave you with a few of my favorite tunes. And yes, my music tastes are all OVAH the place. We got soft stuff, hard stuff and WIP soundtrack stuff. <g> (I will […]

Lovin’ the Process

Lovin’ the Process

Thanks for all the emails and tweets about the last snippet. You guys are soooo good for me. 😉 Sorry for so much blog silence this week. I’ve been hard at work on several things–mostly the dystopian young adult. I haven’t started rewrites yet, so I gave Rae permission to take over the brain a […]

Unnatural Selection Snippet!

Unnatural Selection Snippet!

Okay, after yesterday’s long-winded and a little too honest post, how about something fun? Sneak peek? This is rough draft work so it will go through changes, but it’s from UNNATURAL SELECTION, a futuristic–somewhat dystopian young adult I’m working on. I plan to write a short series in the Surviving Scrap City novels. The opening […]

Truth. Want Some?

Truth. Want Some?

So… what is REALLY happening with my work?  First let me say that Dame Lili’s post hit home with me yesterday.  And something she shared that Stacia Kane said kept replaying in my head all through dinner and shows last night. We had friends over and I introduced my teen reader and her Mom to […]

Requests for Cane River & Books ...

Requests for Cane River & Books Read

So, I’ve been hearing from a few readers about Cane River in the Mammoth Book of Special Ops Romance and so far, it’s nearly all positive. In fact, the only complaint is it’s too short. I wrote that story pretty fast, but really enjoyed the main characters, so writing a full length version is an […]

Another Quickie

Another Quickie

Thanks for all the kind emails, etc.  I’m much better today. Resumed my workout this morning and am spending the day typing in a novella that somehow didn’t get backed up. I’m glad for the hard copy, but this is a bit of a pain. Hopefully, I might have news to share in the not […]

Under the Weather

Under the Weather

Still hearing crickets here?  Sorry ’bout that. All my brain power is going toward my WIPs and watching Veronica Mars episodes because a lot of my time is being taken up by feeling icky. Have a weird headache that has lasted for DAYS which is coming from a combination of unbearable humidity, lack of sleep […]
