    Update on Serendipity of Fate!

    In just a few short days this bad boy gets shipped off to the editor’s for round two of its three rounds of editing. This means that a production schedule is in full swing and on that schedule we have now a hard launch date. Yup, launch date. I’m going to squeak it out here since normally we keep that date hush hush and just speak in sweeping hand flapping generalities, buuuuuut. This November, the eleventh, Veteran’s Day, this luscious heart pounding, patriot inspiring novel will blast out of its starting gate. Ye-haw! Of course as one of my beta readers said, “Awe! Why do we have to wait so…

We’re dusting off the cookie crumbs and throwing away those liquor filled chocolates (they’re such an awesome idea when you first see them at the holidays – Jack Daniel’s and chocolate, awesome!! – then January arrives and it’s… *blerg*) and getting back to work. My boss let me have the entire month off of work (she’s so great, I just love her, have I mentioned how awesome she is??) so I spent it crafting re-watching the…

    Happy Thanksgiving! And Giveaway!

    Happy thanksgiving everyone! As a celebration of thanking and giving we’re putting The Legend of Lady MacLaoch and Forged up for free on the Amazon Kindle starting next week! As for mommy-writerly stuff, things have been pretty busy for me in the last few months since my son has discovered walking and his own ability to discover things (read: chasing a toddler, harnessing a toddler, calming a toddler, entertaining a toddler…), deadlines have been delayed and entire scenes rewritten, but there’s hope! Fingers crossed we’ll get Serendipity of Fate 2.0 off to the editor in January and out to readers by the spring. (!!) After Serendipity, the next novel in…
