Ciao, amici! Thanks for following me around this week. Next week won’t be nearly as hectic, although I still have a few posts that haven’t gone live yet. Many of us are currently celebrating a three-day weekend with trips and picnics and anything we can think of to enjoy the last joys of summer. IContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”

Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Ciao, folks. Sorry about the delay with this one. As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been busy, busy, busy! Without further ado, this week’s inspiration: This quote is by Patricia Fuller. It resonated with me because, in addition to finishing a first draft and releasing a novella this week, I’ve been pouring over galley proofs forContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”

New Novella GAMBLE Making the Rounds

Sorry to double post today. I try never to do that, but sometimes it just can’t be helped. Today is one of those days. I’ve got some really great and supportive friends.

Shameless Self-Promotion: #Romance for #ValentinesDay

#PNR Boxed Set—Paranormal Attractions

It seems like we’re inundated today with boxed sets and PNR stories. There’s a good reason for it—paranormal romances are enticing reads, and boxed sets are great values. Recently I had the chance to participate in my first boxed set, a paranormal romance set with eight other authors. I didn’t know most of them, butContinue reading “#PNR Boxed Set—Paranormal Attractions”

Not Your Granddaddy’s Westerns

Last week, AIW Press released a short story anthology called Unshod. Its tagline? “Not your granddaddy’s westerns.” That’s probably pretty apt. I remember visiting my grandparents on Sunday evenings. If football or baseball wasn’t on, a western was, and as much as I loved my grandfather, I hated his choice of television entertainment. Spaghetti WesternsContinue reading “Not Your Granddaddy’s Westerns”

Michele never thought she’d be writing aContinue reading “New Release—Egyptian Mythology Meets Pittsburgh Mystery”

The Year in Review

It’s Christmas Eve. I haven’t been writing as much as I usually do. I guess I’ve been taking a “holiday” vacation leading into the Christmas season. It’s been a busy year for me, so I don’t feel too guilty (who am I trying to convince, anyway, you or me?), but I promise, after the NewContinue reading “The Year in Review”
