As of this evening, I’m on a one-week vacation from Le Day Job. One week to make myself more of a hermit while I finish as much of the revisions for Celestial Chaos as possible, and likely some other boring life stuff as well. Case in point: I was cleaning out my purse this week … More Staycation
First of all—the first draft of Celestial Chaos is done. It’s 5,000 words over what I originally figured it would be, and that word count will probably change once I’m finished writing the second draft, but it’s DONE. I’d planned on completing the first draft by New Year’s Eve, but since I’d rather spend December … More Can I still say “Happy New Year” 11 days into January?
December first is upon us, and…I didn’t finish NaNoWriMo. I know, I know: Everyone must be shocked. I didn’t even come close. This year was the most pathetic attempt so far. I made it about 20,000 words in before I said “Nuts to this” and returned to Celestial Chaos and a contemporary erotic romance that … More Of porny books and publishing

All Lily wants is a fresh start. A desk job in a cryonics lab, miles from home, seems like the perfect way to begin her new life. She just doesn’t expect her employers to be a pair of power-hungry psychopaths from the far future who won’t let anyone stand in their way, including their quiet … More Cover reveal! (Updated)
…not on a computer. On Friday, I received a design concept from the cover artist I hired and I squee’ed like a teenaged girl. I was so excited–it’s exactly what I want, and there aren’t any naked male torsos or heaving bosoms included. Which makes me happy. I also signed up for a Goodreads account, … More Why, yes, I studied art in college. But I learned to draw naked people by hand.
So, it occurred to me today while I was setting up my CISS account with Collections Canada that I should probably start this new blog. The blog I bought and set up (sort of–as of this writing I haven’t really tweaked the default settings) back in, oh, July? My perfectly legitimate excuse is that I … More First post!
