Ciao, amici! How’s it going? I’ve seen some wonderful vacation pics from a few of you. I hope you’re all enjoying your summer. I was not on vacation this week. (Or at all this summer.) And it’s either been too rainy or too hot to use the pool. (Yes, it can be too hot toContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”

Ciao, amici! How was your week? Mine was a hodgepodge of work and family activities. No two days were the same. I kind of like that (although not when it involves loved ones having surgery—my dog on Tuesday and my dad today). But in general, I think variety makes my mind sharper. I believe itContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”

Ciao, amici! The three-day weekend has me all turned around. I’m not sure why, since I worked through the holiday, but I’m muddled all the same. Days off, whether I take them or not, always make the rest of the week hard for me. I never know what day it is, and my plans allContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”

Ciao, amici! What a whirlwind of a week! Mr. Muse returned. I had a book release. A friend visited with a cover reveal. My WIP took a turn I hadn’t expected—and I outline, for Pete’s sake. How did that happen? The unexpected turn was more antagonist-related than monster-related, but it made something kind of coolContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”

Ciao, amici! Another busy and beautiful week at the Troilo residence come and gone. Our Easter celebration was low-key for us this year. At first, I felt bad about skipping some of our traditions. But then, the day came. The meal, though simpler than my usual holiday fare, was delicious. The love flowed as freelyContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”

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 inContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”

Ciao, amici! I’m a day late, but Happy Valentine’s Day. I’ve said it before and I’ll (probably) say it again, but this isn’t a huge deal in my house. We try to acknowledge our feelings for each other every day, not just on designated days of the year. That said, as of late I’ve been remissContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”

Ciao, amici! It’s that time again. A quick wrap-up of the week, and a little discussion about writing. Hopefully you’ll join in at the end. This week was a hodgepodge for me. I wrote, I revised, I edited. I read and wrote reviews. I created graphics. I even tried a different tactic to get AMS adsContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”

Ciao, amici! Hope you’re all doing well. It was another busy week for me, and it doesn’t look like my obligations will be changing anytime soon, so rather than boring you with the same lament every Friday, I’m going to move on to what is relevant. We celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. this Monday. Man, wouldn’tContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”
