I’m Alive

I’m Alive

Just slightly overwhelmed by projects to get done and a few personal things. In the meantime, we have extended the deadline for the Readers on Deadline at The Deadline Dames. We’ve had comment issues so people couldn’t get their entries posted. Check out the image and the FANTASTIC prizes! (The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney […]

Proof the Hope is Still Alive

Proof the Hope is Still Alive

Oh my goodness, I do have quite a few of you following this crazy journey, don’t I? Thanks for sticking around!!!! So, after concerned emails, tweets, Facebook messages, etc, I just want to reassure you all that though I’m disappointed I didn’t get a book deal in 2010, I’m certainly not giving up. I love […]

Haunted

Haunted

So okay, I’ve been going back and forth on the moods here. Enjoying the holiday season with my family, but fighting this dragging disappointment over publishing. I’ve been left on hold a bit… okay, way more than a bit, and it pulls at the heart some. Luckily, my critique partner has a wicked deadline. Not […]

TOMORROW!!

TOMORROW!!

Tomorrow, my critique partner’s new young adult novel is on the shelves! You’ll want to get MY SOUL TO STEAL. I had an absolute blast reading about Sabine! [youtube=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZ5jVZldug4&feature=player_embedded]

How To Stay Positive

December 10th: “I hope a publisher reads my manuscript before the end of the year!” December 21st: “Well, doubt I hear anything this year… but maybe one will read it over holiday break!”

Working. Working. Working.

Working. Working. Working.

For the record, I will probably cave and share a snippet at some point. I know I have a few readers interested in Unnatural Selection. Have I told you lately that you rock? No? Well, you do. I’m alternating between loving this book like crazy, to pulling my hair out over some of the harder […]

Don’t Let the Chatter Slow You ...

Don’t Let the Chatter Slow You Down

Am dying to share some of the current WIP, but am playing it smart. This baby needs to go through my critique partner and agent before I start sharing with you. Speaking of my CP, Rachel Vincent is holding several ARC giveaways on her upcoming YA novel, MY SOUL TO STEAL. You might want to check […]

Too Good to Miss

Too Good to Miss

Today, I only want to share this. All women should watch this incredible speech by Helen Mirren. http://womenandhollywood.com/2010/12/08/helen-mirren-kicks-ass-at-the-women-in-entertainment-breakfast/

Remember The Snark?

Remember The Snark?

I didn’t get a lot of comments yesterday, but I did hear privately from a few people and you rock. No worries, I will pull through the disappointment and I am LOVING the writing process again, so it’s all good. 😉 Now, I don’t often bring up the Write Snark store. For years, this blog was […]
