I’d apologize for dropping off the face of the blogosphere again, but…oh, hell. I apologize for dropping off the face of the blogosphere. I don’t have an excuse. I’m much more active on Twitter, I swear. Follow me for book updates, Simpsons quotes, and musings about makeup and recipes. As you can see from … More Where are you going, where have you been?
Regular readers of this blog know I put myself down the Super Happy Fun Slide that is NaNoWriMo pretty much every year, and I’ve never been able to actually finish a NaNoWriMo project by November 30. I’ve written 50,000 words in a month before; just not when I was supposed to. And November 2013 was … More When stuff isn’t working
One of the characters in my current project (not the hero or heroine, in case you’re wondering) is a smoker. This book is set about 30-ish years in the future on Earth, so I’m imagining a time when smoking is looked down upon even more than it is now. I’m also realizing that like so … More Bad Habits and Why I Want More of Them
I’ve mentioned before that I keep track of all the books I read, and until last year I posted a list of my favourites from each month. I’ve also posted that I’m bad at reviewing things, which is one of the reasons I stopped that monthly feature. But listing my favourites once a year is … More What I Read: 2013 Edition
This is what I like to think of as my open plan filing system in my home office. Er, part of it. MM and I share the space and he calls it a mess, but he just doesn’t understand how my system operates. “Cluttered workspace equals cluttered mind”—absolutely true, and I wouldn’t have it any … More Where I work, or: I am not a hoarder
(Originally titled “Performance Anxiety” but I changed it because snickering.) I am not a performer. I don’t enjoy the spotlight. I’m not even a particularly eloquent speaker: I talk too fast at the best of times and I stammer when I meet someone new or when I’m nervous. I possess just enough coordination so I … More Fright
And it’ll be available on a couple more in the coming weeks! Celestial Chaos is now available on Amazon and AllRomanceEbooks. Everything’s been uploaded to Kobo and it’ll be available there in the next few days (I hope) and I’ll have it uploaded to Smashwords in the next couple of days. The print edition will … More Celestial Chaos is now available on select channels!
So, Celestial Chaos’s proofreading is finished. Right now, I’m making a workable ePub file so I can read the finished product on my Kobo before I typeset the book and ebook files and all that fun stuff. I anticipate releasing it into the world within the next couple of weeks, and I’ll be posting about … More Celestial Chaos update
I’ve mentioned Flowers in the Attic here before, and … I’m doing it again. Like most women born before, say, 1986 (in our day, we didn’t have Internet smut), I read a tattered copy when I was in junior high, loaned to me by a classmate who needed it back in two days or less … More Wilted, rotting, and sticking to the vase
Wow. I’m sorry; I didn’t mean to drop off the face of the earth for over two months. In book news, Celestial Chaos is now in the proofreading stages, so I’m expecting to release it this summer. It would have been earlier, but a major family event occurred in the spring, and I was derailed. … More Loss
