Freebies and an update

Here’s hoping everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. Mine was made especially good because my son was home for Christmas for the first time in three years. Now, however, it is time to get back down to work and get busy and back on schedule — at least for me. So, to start, I have three books set for free through tomorrow. Hunted (Hunter’s Moon Book 1) When Meg Finley’s parents […]

Holiday update

They say that all battle plans go out the window the moment you engage the enemy. Well, that pretty much holds true for writers announcing schedules, especially around the holidays. I had hoped to have Dagger of Elanna out by now. But the holidays and a nagging injury that has turned into more than just nagging has thrown a huge wrench into the works. (In other words, when one has only one […]

If it’s Tuesday

I’m posting at Mad Genius Club. Today, I’m talking about critique groups, point of view, and the Rule of Three. The dangers of critiques

The road to Hell is paved. . . .

You know the rest of the saying. The reason this is on my mind this morning is two-fold. Over the last couple of days, several of my friends, family really, have found themselves or their loved ones in the hospital. In one case, the friend didn’t want to impose on anyone by asking people — family, mainly — to come up and give her a break from sitting hour after hour with […]

Every voice should be heard. . .

. . . but that doesn’t mean action has to be taken each and every time. A couple of posts caught my eye this morning. The first is out of Amherst, Massachusetts. Hampshire College, a Liberal Arts college boasting an enrollment of approximately  1,400 students found itself making national news. No, it isn’t because of the quality of the education it gives its students. It is over flying — or, in this case, […]

Update on Dagger of Elanna

It is coming. There has been a problem with the production of the print book. As soon as that is fixed and I have confirmed it by seeing the fix, I will hit the publish button on the e-book. Hopefully, we are talking just a couple of days. In the meantime, check out my author page on Amazon.

I really didn’t want to do a political post. I’m tired of politics and have been for some time. I am not a fan of the President-elect. Nor was I a fan of Mrs. Clinton. I felt both of them had so much baggage they wouldn’t be able to get off the election train and find their way to the White House without another scandal of some sort occurring. But, whether I […]

Snip, clip and pic

Apologies for the silence this past week but I’ve been up to my eyes in remodeling chores around the house. There has been patching of walls — especially the one place in the hallway that BratCat decided was his place to try to dig through the drywall. The only thing was, this spot was about 3 1/2 feet off the ground. So, he would jump, claw and rip. At least he has […]

Dishonored 2 – Initial Impressions

I am a gamer. It is one way for me to blow off steam and to escape from the muse when she won’t leave me alone. One of the games I purchased based on a recommendation from my son was the original Dishonored. It took me a while to get into the game. Stealth games aren’t ones I usually do. I’m more of a kick down doors and shoot/stab everything in sight. But, […]

Is it Monday again?

There will be a “real” post later. I am just now sitting down with my second cup of coffee, which means I am not adequately awake yet. This even though I have been up for a couple of hours. The problem is the sight that greeted me when I looked out the front window once the sun came up. Water was running down the driveway and it wasn’t raining and the sprinkler […]
