    (Belated) Summer Writing Update

    It’s still technically summer, right?  Sort of?  As my friend Lenny says, it’s been a minute since I posted over here.  It was a very eventful summer! I finished the draft and am on to revisions of Veil of Thorns!  I actually finished the book in June, but then I found out we had to either buy our house or move, and a mad dash to make that happen ensued.  We bought the house! It just closed on September 1st, and now I can breathe a sigh of relief (that I don’t have to move) and focus on getting this book polished and out to readers.  It will be off…

    Winter Writing Update

    I took a much-needed vacation in mid-November and once I came back, it was as if the wind had gone out of my sails. Not in a bad way! Actually it would be more accurate to say that instead of the hurricane frenzy I left in, I came back riding a nice subtle breeze.  So rather than try to gear up for a big push at the end of the year, I decided to just relax and let things flow.

    A Very Bookish Summer Update

    Wow, this summer is flying by! Maybe that’s par for the course when I have a new release, and I’m kinda digging that I’m staying so busy (it helps keep me focused) but also a little worried as my deadline for my next book is approaching a lot faster than my word count is growing (eep!).  But, I have had a LOT of stuff going on, and August is going to be a writing month for me, with as little distractions as possible. Quick Summer Re-Cap:   Wild Heart had a fabulous release, and spent over 30 days on the top 100 list for my category! Rain of Ash got…

    Skydancer Series – New Covers!

    It’s my hope to release books 2 and 3 of the Skydancer series in the next 9 months, so I decided to order the covers in bulk, and that means Rain of Ash got a gorgeous new facelift just in time for its 2-year birthday.  I’m SO THRILLED!  Once again, the folks at Deranged Doctor Design knocked it out of the park.  I’ll be doing the cover reveals for books 2 and 3 as we get closer to release. Sigh… I could look at it all day. 😀 Save

    2017 Intention: Lighting the Creative Fire

    This year, as compared to last, my holiday season was back to the normal crazy. I much prefer it the way we did it last year — a 5 day escape to the winter wonderland that is Whistler, BC. Instead, we hosted family in our new home this year, which was its own kind of special. Especially with the flu hitting us hard the week of Christmas. So, I didn’t have time to do my traditional solstice ritual and meditation. And yet it still came to me, as soon as I was nestled in bed on Solstice night. Whispered by the voice deep within, which I’ve admittedly been remiss at…

    Fall Writing Update – Through the Fog

    If you’ve been following along, you know that my next book is way beyond past due. I was planning to have it ready in June, July, August, and September (at which time I had to give up the ghost and accept it was going to be longer). There were too many other things going on that needed my attention this year, and my focus and energy were just sapped. The last several months have felt like a dream, and not a particularly good one. And yes, I’m talking about the election.
