So…yeah. In August, I was all “who wants to review my barbarian novella that should be done September-ish?!” and a bunch of people signed up* and I was all whee, yay, Meljean is coming out with something soon, even if she calls herself Milla. NOW IT’S 2017 And VENGEANCE is not a novella anymore. (Raise your […]
D’oh! Yeah, I’m an idiot.
I was reminded to update the blog to let you all know what’s going on. Sometimes I forget (mostly because I check in on Facebook and Twitter now and then, but forget about the website because it’s not as interactive.) Right now I’m working, trying to avoid all Star Wars spoilers (I have a ticket […]
This sucks, but I’m tabling the Blacksmith for a little while. I’ve been fighting with the book for months — I like all of the little parts but the little parts aren’t coming together. So that means I’m just going to put it aside until I figure out what’s going wrong, instead of smashing my […]
Well, crap. These are apparently the growing pains of self-publishing stuff … even shorter works. Because the problem is, the story is not quite as short as I thought it would be, and I’ve had more distractions than I thought I would have, as well. *waves to the family reunion, waves to father’s day stuff, […]
Every time you want to respond to a negative review, just pretend that there is a BFF behind you, saying, “Oh, honey, no!” AUTHOR: But she doesn’t understand my book! I’ll tell her like it is! BFF: Oh, honey, no! AUTHOR: But it’s a personal vendetta! She’s out to ruin me and starve my kids! […]
I was sitting here thinking about how I was going to make a scene transition, and while I was pondering, I pulled out a hair and started singing it on my desk candle. The first four or five inches, it just did that crinkly/curly thing over the heat (about a half an inch over the […]
I’m not the best person for remembering dates and gauging the passage of time anyway, but I just got my contracts in today and noticed that the deadline I thought was at the end of a month (Feb) is actually at the beginning of the month. Eek! So, except for a few posts that I’ve […]
1) The mini meat cleaver that came in the Hillshire Farms gift pack that your sister bought on sale after Christmas last year — and you aren’t really sure if she bought it for herself or if she planned to give it away this year (because summer sausage lasts a disturbingly long time), but it […]
Because they’re just as cute, and a hell of a lot easier to take care of.
So last night I was dreaming about something (I have no idea what) but in one part, I was in front of a window, looking at a poster advertising books. And at the bottom of the poster, I see a tiny little label with gold font lettering that said one of my novellas would be […]
So, I was sitting at my desk working when my daughter (5 yo) and my husband (2 yo), who have been looking at different types of fish on YouTube, came into my room and told me I had to watch this. I’ll admit: I screamed. And then after we were all done rolling around on […]
No, not Bobby — although he is the one who found this book among the sack of categories my sister brought up from my dad’s house yesterday (also a Susan Napier, THE MISTRESS DECEPTION — reviewed here by Rosario — which I really enjoyed, and a Vicki Lewis Thompson Blaze that I haven’t read before.)
