Ending a Series is Torture… Tortured Soul, the Medici Protectorate Finale

Ciao, everybody. I wanted to chat a bit about the end of a series. Next week, the final installment of the Medici Protectorate series, Tortured Soul, releases. This is my second completed series. Ending my first one didn’t bother me too much. I had planned to expand the series away from the Keller family (IContinue reading “Ending a Series is Torture… Tortured Soul, the Medici Protectorate Finale”

Tortured Soul Available for Preorder

Bittersweet. That’s the only way I can describe it. I’m proud to have completed the final installment of the Medici Protectorate series, but I love this world so much, I’m sorry to see it end. Tortured Soul is the fourth novel in the series. It follows the final member of the Brotherhood (Roberto “Coz” Cozza)Continue reading “Tortured Soul Available for Preorder”

This Author’s Six Month Checkup

January 1 was (roughly) six months ago. I hate making resolutions, but I had a lot of plans for this year. Isn’t it funny how things change? My plans have morphed (in some cases, considerably), and I thought I’d tell you how it’s all shaping up. Am I celebrating? Read on to find out. IfContinue reading “This Author’s Six Month Checkup”

Shameless Self-Promotion: #Romance for #ValentinesDay

Ciao, friends. In honor of Valentine’s Day, I want to throw my hat in the proverbial romance ring (I’ve heard somewhere that love is a battlefield) and remind everyone about my selection of titles fit for this time of year. Here are brief descriptions of my work: Like alchemy, prophecy, and deep family roots? TryContinue reading “Shameless Self-Promotion: #Romance for #ValentinesDay”

Happy 2018!

Dilly dilly! (Sorry. Couldn’t pass up a chance to be socially relevant to start the new year.) 2017 is officially in the past. Happy New Year! Welcome, 2018! A few days ago I posted my “2017 Year in Review” post. In the spirit of endings and beginnings, I have my “What to Expect in 2018”Continue reading “Happy 2018!”

Good Riddance, 2017

I’ve been blogging for several years now. Some years I write a “year in review” post; others I don’t. I was going to skip it this year, but a friend and fellow writer (C. S. Boyack) wrote one, as he does every year, and when I read both his post and the comments, I realizedContinue reading “Good Riddance, 2017”

Oops, I Did It Again

This really isn’t like me. I swear. I’ve just been so busy, I haven’t been able to keep track of things. I need an assistant, but no one works for homemade baked goods. Especially when it involves a telecommuting job. (“Wages” would be stale by the time they were received.) Anyway, I wrote a postContinue reading “Oops, I Did It Again”

Author Inspiration and Reflection

Well, Thanksgiving’s over. The leftovers are (finally) gone. Family’s gone, too. This is one of my favorite quotes, because it reminds me to count my blessings, to rejoice in the positives, to appreciate the good things in life. If I let myself, I could easily wallow over not going back to Pennsylvania for the holidaysContinue reading “Author Inspiration and Reflection”

A Revealing “Interview” with Body Armor Characters

My friend and fellow author, C. S. Boyack, created a fascinating character, Lisa Burton, in one of his novels, Wild Concept. One cool thing about her? She’s a robot girl. Another cool thing? When the novel was over, Craig kept her around as his marketing assistant and spokesmodel. She even has her own radio show!Continue reading “A Revealing “Interview” with Body Armor Characters”

A Month of Gratitude

Happy November! Yes, I’m a smidge late with the greeting. By the time this posts, I’ll be close to a week late. What can I say? It’s been a rough year. Better late than never. I just wanted to take a quick second and fill you all in on what’s going on. November is NaNoWriMoContinue reading “A Month of Gratitude”
