THANK YOU!!! Your votes put 'Guarding Charon' into 4th place with the P&E poll for Best of 2016!!! This week, I'm giving you a peek at Fin and her world! Enjoy! Thunk. The sound of the arrow piercing the wild boar’s carcass seemed loud in the early morning silence. Fin lowered her bow. “Well, … Continue reading Teaser Tuesday – Fin’s Magic: A Book of the Amari
Hey. It's Wednesday, not Monday. And I haven't exactly been on the ball each week with posts here. I did a big push and wrapped up "Emile's Blade" earlier this week. It's with my beta readers now, and should be under contract/with my editor at Solstice Publishing shortly after the first of September. Now I'm … Continue reading Closing a door
Morning, everyone! I know, it's Tuesday. I didn't post yesterday. There was a reason. Any post I would've made would've been whiny, petulant, and a pity party. You see, for all my preaching about staying upbeat in the face of bad sales, etc, even I fall off the wagon and have a bad day. Yesterday … Continue reading Finding my way once again
Morning, everyone. Last week, I found out my mother passed away. I've spent a lot of time since then coming to grips with her passing. While I think I'll still have difficulties at the service itself, time moves on. We didn't have a perfect relationship. There were more times than not where one of us … Continue reading The End of Things
Morning, everyone! It was a busy week last week! Over 4,000 new words down on paper for 'Alaric's Bow', the follow up to 'Fin's Magic'! Most of that was yesterday. It felt really good to get back in the zone! 'Arine's Sanctuary' will release on Friday, July 24th! The ebook is available for pre-orders now, … Continue reading New release coming! And a giveaway!
Good morning, everyone! I've got a confession to make. I haven't written my 500 words for a good week. It's been too hot. Yes, I know it's a relative term. This area doesn't see the blistering temperatures other parts of the U.S. do, but we've been warm. And, when you rarely see temps in the … Continue reading When the heat is on
Hello everyone! Vacation was a blast! Muse the Purrbot has forgiven me for leaving her for a full week. Much coffee was purchased during our visit to Harry & David. And even more relaxing happened. Yes, you can drive 7+ hours most days and relax. LOL I've got things going on 'Sanctuary' again. And I'm … Continue reading And I’m back!
It was a wild week. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around everything. Solstice took second in the voting. "Fin's Magic" came in 3rd. Very proud of both ratings. Thank you to everyone that voted and helped spread the word! And the Seahawks pulled out a victory in the NFC Championship game that still … Continue reading Trying to collect my thoughts
Psst! No one's entered the contest mentioned in last week's blog! Recommend you go do that, because odds are REALLY good right now! Currently, Solstice is holding the #1 position, and 'Fin's Magic' is in #4! If they BOTH win, I'll select two winners!

Be sure to come say hi after it's done! One of the things I look forward to each year around this … Continue reading A Plea for Votes!
