This quote spoke to me this week because I'm not at my best. I've been sick---it's not a cold, not the flu. But I'm run down. I have a cough and not much of a voice. Consequently, I've been moving slower. That means I'm not getting to everything I'd like to get to (and I struggle … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Last Stop on the PASSWORD Book Release Tour

Ciao, everyone. I mentioned the other day that I had only one stop left on the Password book release tour. I'm delighted to announce that it's today, and it's at Michele Jones's site. Best part? She's my sister! Nothing like finishing a long trip with a visit to a family member, you know? I hope … Continue reading Last Stop on the PASSWORD Book Release Tour

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? Try … Continue reading Shameless Self-Promotion: #Romance for #ValentinesDay

Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

This week, I didn't have time to read for pleasure. I've been busy writing and editing, trying to hit deadlines and keep up with marketing efforts, small though they are these days. What I noticed is that I didn't read much and I didn't write much, either. It seems the two are connected. At least, … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

An Exclusive Excerpt from PASSWORD

My blog tour for Password is winding down. There's only one post left (if I've planned correctly). Until that goes live, I thought I'd post an excerpt of the novel here. Finally, he came out. When he saw her staring at him, he turned off the light. She could still make him out in the dim … Continue reading An Exclusive Excerpt from PASSWORD

I've been working 12-16 hour days, 7 days a week. I finally took an afternoon off a few days ago. I simply needed to recharge. It made me think of this old proverb because (as my family can attest) I've been a dull girl. Actually, I don't think dull is a strong enough word. But … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Sometimes you feel like a nut…

Admit it. You're singing the song from the commercial. I am. (Probably will be all day, too.) I chose this because, today, I feel like a nut. Several of my friends released books around the same time I did. We've been scheduling visits at each other's sites to help promote. Sometimes the details became confusing. … Continue reading Sometimes you feel like a nut…

On the Road Again… (Book Excerpt: PASSWORD)

I'm not a Willie Nelson fan, but this song is on my mind. Why? Because I just released a novel and I'm doing the tour-thing. Today, I have the pleasure of heading over to the entertaining website of C. S. Boyack, where he's allowed me to share a blurb and excerpt. Craig is a good friend, … Continue reading On the Road Again… (Book Excerpt: PASSWORD)

Light My Fire (Says Author Joan Hall)

I can't tell you all how happy I am to be hosting today's guest. We've been friends for years and have had stories published in the same anthologies, but I don't think we've ever released novels so close to each other before. Today, let's celebrate Joan Hall's latest release, Unknown Reasons, and welcome her back … Continue reading Light My Fire (Says Author Joan Hall)

With A Little Help from My Friends: The Buddy Story

Are you singing the song in your head? Or aloud? I sang it aloud, and my dogs gave me the look. Yep. That's how bad my voice is. If you're not singing it, have a listen. Joe Cocker's version is one of my favorites. Why am I blathering on and on about help from friends? Two … Continue reading With A Little Help from My Friends: The Buddy Story
