Ciao, amici! What a week! My release date was moved up... by five months! And I've been scrambling. I just revealed my new pen name and the first cover in my new series. Now I'm trying to get some marketing pieces done and guest spots lined up. I never do NaNoWriMo because it happens in... Continue Reading →
Ciao, amici! Did you know this week was National Library Week? I've been celebrating with a post here and there on Facebook and Instagram. But I couldn't let the week go by without mentioning it here, too. To that end, this week's post isn't about writing, but about libraries. There were a lot to choose... Continue Reading →
I started this week with the best of intentions, then I was derailed almost immediately. But I'm determined to have a better week next week. It'll be a busy one, for sure, yet I know it will be an improvement over this one. And I'm wishing you a good one, too.

This week was all about editing, so of course that's what this week's inspirational quote deals with. These words by Stephanie Roberts really spoke to me.
Time was on my mind this week (as I rushed to make my deadline and feared the ticking clock), so I thought this quote by Henry David Thoreau was appropriate:
Not that the story need be long,
but it will take a long while to make it short.
Ciao, amici! Today's a mish-mash of sorts. You'll see my featured image is of Dr. Seuss. Tomorrow is National Dr. Seuss Day. I'm a huge fan of his and always mark the occasion. Today I've chosen one of my favorite quotes from him. Actually, I usually only quote the middle, but this time I've included... Continue Reading →
Ciao, amici! How was your week? I'm sorry to say mine was less than productive. I seem to have hit that mid-winter wall where doing anything requiring more effort than pouring a cup of coffee doesn't seem worth it. In fact, there are days I even wonder whether I should make coffee. Shocking, right? Never... Continue Reading →
