Last Tuesday, after a very long and harrowing stint of HEAVY EDITING (*hyperventilates into imaginary bag*), I sent my manuscript to my editor. She’s making amazing progress, and I’m so glad I chose to work with her. ❤ Right now, though, I’m in this funny in-between stage. I don’t technically have a story to work … More When the Stories Won’t Stay Away
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas! Well, not quite yet but it’s only 12 more days! 😀 In the meantime, I have a gift (or two) for you. 😉 I’m giving away a free signed copy of my little book The Twin Arrows! *dances in circles* First, the synopsis… “Two children. Two journeys. Twin arrows. Ryla follows … More A Gift for YOU!
Thank you, Lord, for November. It truly was a beautiful month. This month’s full plate was stacked high with Thanksgiving food! I even made extra-special-but-not-so-traditional cheesecake for part of our celebration. So yummy. 😉 Here’s a quick update on what I did last month. 😉 Read for review: Suit and Suitability (four stars) Christmas Eve at … More Plate Update: Pumpkins, Bows, and Christmas Coming
Guess what I just got in the mail today??!! Ten gorgeous copies of my little book The Twin Arrows. 😀 I was a little nervous since this is only my second shipment of this book every, and I’m well aware that results may vary–but they turned out beautifully! And now they’re all ready to be … More They’re Here!
Tomorrow is the scariest night of the year–the day before a bunch of insane authors begin to write 50,000 words in 30 very short days to celebrate NaNoWriMo (and caffeine). I planned to be among them this year, even announcing my novel on the site and outlining my brainchild. And then, school. I was hoping … More The Case of the Ever Elusive NaNoWriMo
Last weekend, six independent authors and I came together to form a booth at our local homeschool convention selling ten different titles. We had a profitable and encouraging weekend (and a ton of goofy fun to boot)! Here’s a recap. 😉 Thursday night, we were blessed to hitch a ride to set-up with another author’s … More My Weekend at the Generation Rising Authors Booth
I’ve been at the convention all day and will be again tomorrow! 😀 Here’s a “teaser” picture, and I’ll share more Monday!! (Early customers from church testing our salesmen skills.) 😉
Happy release day! Happy, happy release day! (Sung to the tune of “Allouette”. Complete with happy, birdlike arm flapping.) The Twin Arrows is out!!!!!! My precious is available on Amazon in paperback and eBook and all the other places. 😀 Just months ago this was a plotholed, cringeworthy, disgusting old draft. Enter beta-readers, supportive, amazing … More The Twin Arrows Release Day!
June, how I love you and hate you! You were quite too busy for my liking, but extra exciting too–so you can stay on the calendar this year. (You know something’s wrong when you start talking to your calendar.) 😀 It doesn’t feel quite fair to do the last month’s update on it’s very last … More Plate Update: Proofreading, Espionage, and Camp Again
Why didn’t Kate post on Monday? One reason–I got the flu. Which was “lovely”. I think I’m on the mend now, but I am a little behind on everything. 😉 Why is Kate sooooo excited today??? Two reasons… 1. My proof copy came!!! B. And I’ve got pictures for you. 😉 It’s a little book … More My Proof Copy Came!!!
