    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…

    Heatin’ UP!

    So…. Portland has pretty much been The Gates of Hell hot this summer. As Northwesterners we enjoy the foggy days, endless rain and suicidal tendencies from not witnessing the sun for nine months straight. So when we get a blazing hot summer as we’ve gotten this year, we complain. A lot. This year the number of days where it has been in the nineties and hundreds (Fahrenheit, people) has been in the 10 multiplier range. As in MONTHS of blistering heat. Personally, I’m so ready for cool weather and rain that upon seeing the rainy forcast for this week, I wept. Or maybe it was a trickle of sweat, I’m…

    Goodbye to Facebook

    It’s been a long time coming. A long spammy, rights questioning, stalker of a time coming. I’ve broken up with Facebook. Left it. Said goodbye. Hit ‘Delete’. Then ‘Enter’ @ “Are you sure?”. Has anyone else noticed that Facebook is like a third wheel? After my son was born I noticed it. It was this weird shift that I was stealing moments away from my family to read other people’s status, update my status, then worry about those who were having a hard time. Then worrying that I wasn’t posting enough. I realized some time later that it was consuming too much time out of my day. So I stopped…

    Construction

    Making some maintenance changes to the blog. If it looks a little funny – that’s why! Unless, you’re looking at my author pic, then no, that really is funny. :0D

    Synopsis…UGH!

    Synopsis….glug, glug, glug …. That is the sound of me drowning in my own dread. They’re long and hard (minds out of the gutter people!!) task to accomplish because I have to say everything that happens in the book in just a few short sentences. That’s 57 THOUSAND words condensed to 100. Remember the cover?? Only HARDER. Ideally this is my standard synopsis that I’d put on every one of my books:Hot man with troubled past runs into smart and sassy woman who shows him what it means to be loved. THEN for each book I’d add a qualifier to delineate each book like this:In this book however the man…

    New Cover – Serendipity of Fate

    Been working on the edits to Serendipity of Fate (the NaNoWriMo entry we’re dusting up, read it here) and the last thing that needs to be updated is the cover. We used images from the Transformers movies to help fill in the cover, while totally awesome and free advertising for Transformers when it was just a side project to a writing contest, it’s now officially part of the family. With SF getting its own ISBN number and everything it’s time that it also get its own cover that we officially own the copyrights to. Book covers are hard. They are the cover graphic that surmises the entire book. Like a…

    Dusting…

    I threw back the sheets and decided to blog this morning. My Little Man is down for his 45 minute to 3 hour nap (it’s a choose your own adventure sort of thing for him) so I thought I’d head into the office and write! Little did I know the last entry was in… AUGUST?! I have a feeling that the next time I sit down I’ll be, “I blogged last in FEBRUARY?!” Sigh. I’ve dusted off my keyboard, unearthed my computer and fingers clicking away….I’ve totally forgotten what I was going to write about. Sigh. News!Yes, news! There is no news. Kidding, there’s a teeny tiny little wee portion…
