Write, paint ... create!

I am 99.9% done editing One Shot, the second Talia Sunborn short story.  It’s out for its final spit and polish edit. So it may be released as early as Monday. Yeah, Monday sounds like a good day. Both Talia stories are background to my novel, Nets to Catch the Wind. It’s a full length, high fantasy Read more…


Mechanicsville fans will be happy to know that I am writing draft 1 of book 3 (title to be determined) during Nanowrimo.  Yes, by Nov 30th I will have 50,000 words of a terrible first draft to be polished into the further adventures of Samantha, Ashley and Faraj. So an edited version will be for sale this Read more…


I finished the tax journal for authorpreneurs today! I had promised people that it would be ready for Can-Con, and it will be. Barring printer problems, idiots at customs and so forth, of course. I don’t have a table at Can-Con, so I’ll have a few in my bag and a box in my room, just stop Read more…


Sometimes it happens a lot. Explodes kinda. I recently found out I’m becoming a godmother! I’ll try to be the nice one, not the one who curses the whole castle.  No promises.  🙂 We’ve been to 2 out of 3 baby showers, being the first grandchild in both the mom and pop-to-be’s families, everybody wanted to celebrate.

Right now I’m reading Val McDermid’s article on her writing routine. She gets up at 9am, starts working by 11. This is me! I get up around 830am, drag my bones out to get dressed, have a coffee, and am at the computer by 10. I then do email and blogs for a while, just like her. Read more…


Happy Mother’s Day, mom… a little late.  In my defence, I did remember on the day, and the day after, I just couldn’t get through on the phone, or you were out.  Then my jerk brain said “Great, reminded you twice. My job here is done! And I forgot. I really should have remembered, the 14th was Read more…


Tomorrow morning bright and early, we leave on a ten hour drive to my Mom’s to help with her wedding.  It’s both stressful (Mom reports turning into a 16 yo bridezilla) and incredibly cute. So, I spent all day yesterday packing for a 2 week trip, and was supposed to spend today getting the house ready to Read more…


I entered a short story contest put on by Radish a few weeks ago. Radish is an online story sharing app, kind of a pro-level Wattpad. Except that it just goes to Mac Apple products for now. (They are working on an Android app) I entered a short story based in my world for Nets to Catch Read more…


Well, so far today. Major pain from being in town yesterday. I had a Dr appt, where she doubled my morphine dose (that’s always a good sign, right?), told me the xrays of my back revealed “significant erosion” from L5 to L3, and there wasn’t enough healthy bone left to try to operate to fix the degenerating Read more…


8000 steps yesterday, and every one hurt. I’m supposed to do 1500-2000 steps a day. I did 4-5 X that much. Owie! But I’m back, almost in one piece, and eager to get editing my fantasy epic.  April is Camp Nano, and I’ve chosen to edit my book so that it makes sense, tighten it by about Read more…
