Oh, And One More Thing!

Bound in Smoke – Progress! For the last three weeks I have been preparing to do another paper read through of Bound in Smoke. I printed out the whole thing and had it in the binder and something kept nagging at me so I didn’t start that day. Then I was walking back to the […]

Midsummer Updates

Midsummer is Here! Here we are, halfway through July. Summer is not my season, I gotta say. I am not a warm weather person. If summer is your season, I say enjoy it, but I will stay out of the sun, slathered up with SPF 50 if I do venture out, and be grateful for […]

Summer is Coming and the Writing is Never Easy

Happy June to everyone! It’s true writing is never easy, but I am writing! Bound in Smoke is (dare I say it?) structurally complete.

Everything is starting to bloom! Yay for April and spring weather. Yesterday I took the dogs for their walk and it was […]

Weather: We Have It. Greetings to everyone! California has been in severe drought for the last several years which has been scary and sad. We’d stopped planting our yearly tulips because even with a six week rest in the fridge before planting they require February frost and freezes, and for the past 2-3 years we […]

Quick My Immortals Update

My Immortals Update! I have uploaded the files for My Wicked Enemy and My Forbidden Desire, and I am waiting for the various vendors to get the books on sale. Amazon has my reversion letters but how soon they’ll realize that and put the books on sale is anyone’s guess. Once all the vendors have […]
