If there’s one word that I could use to describe 2017, it’s unsettled. Chaotic would be another good one. It was a year full of disruptions, from moving and everything involved with that, to emergency oral surgery (my husband, not me) to our dog’s illness and a flurry of vet visits. Looking back, it feels … More Looking Forward to an Ambitious New Year
As of today I’m just short of 60,000 words along on Ghost of a Chance. I’m going to try my best to finish Act Two this week. It’s getting there… As I start rolling toward the end of my current WIP and having a little more breathing room in my schedule, I’m turning my attention in … More New Cover Reveal, and Changes A-Comin’…
I almost wrote this post several months ago, or a version of it anyway. This was right after my Kickstarter went down in flames and I was feeling a little defeated and lost as to where to go next, and it was coming out a bit whiny, so I scrapped it. Since then, I’ve taken … More An Honest Look at Self-Publishing
And here it is: Only one pledge so far, but that’s a start. But I need a lot more pledges than that to show me that enough people actually want to read this book to make it worth my while to write it. If it doesn’t get at least half-way funded, then that’ll be the … More The Kickstarter for GHOST OF A CHANCE is live!
And here they are: So now I need to edit it, send out the ARC to my mailing list and plan the launch. I’m toying with the idea of sending out the ARC unedited, but the last time I did that someone gave away their copy to somebody who left a review complaining about the … More The Restless Spirits novelette is finished. And has a cover. And a title.
Today is a snow day. Although work-at-home types like me don’t really get to take snow days, do we? If we did, instead of writing this in my office I’d be camped out on the couch with my crochet/knitting bag marathoning Gilmore Girls on Netflix… which is pretty much how I spent yesterday, come to … More Weekend Recap, Tea & Creativity, and Goals for February 16-21
I’m still liking my bullet journal. I wasn’t able to experiment with it this week like I wanted to, but in its basic form, it got the job done. I didn’t meet all my goals this week, but it seems I never really do. Let’s look at how I did. Writing/Publishing Write at least 250 … More Weekly Plan Follow-up: February 9-13, 2015
I’ve been trying to keep my topics here more general because I know not everyone who visits my blog are writers, but sometimes I feel compelled to share certain things for the sake of the writers who I know do read this here blog (note to writers: if you want me to post more writing/publishing … More Game-changing Resources for Indie Authors
I spent some time over the weekend tweaking this here blog and making the theme look a bit more custom. I spent a lot of time and needless energy last week worrying that I needed to build myself a brand-new “profeshunul author” website and trying to envision something I’d be happy with that tied my … More Rearranging the Furniture
I didn’t get all of my freelance work done before the weekend, so I’m having to work today. It’s mostly my own fault for not managing my time as well as I could have, but then again this was a pretty hectic week that involved more errands and more reasons to leave the house than … More Links: What’s Steampunk, Sleepy Hollow preview, and more
