June Reading List

I’m working on a required reading list for a romance workshop I’m taking in September. Unfortunately I can’t talk about any of the books here but I’ll mention them after the workshop. I also read a lot of other stuff last month. Here are a few that really stood out.Read More

Busy Day

So much going on! I had a theme for today’s post but I find that I have too many things to do to give it the thought it deserves so I’m bagging it. Instead of writing my post I’m going to finish a workshop assignment (I always have a writing workshop going on. I’ll never be as great a writer as I want to be if I stop learning.) I’m also prepping a new Junkyard Dog Collection–Books 4-6 for publication this week and I’m writing the second book in a new sci-fi series. In between brain work I’m headed out to my flower gardens to weed and soak up some Vitamin D.

Wishing you all a nice holiday weekend and sending my respect for all who served or are serving in our armed forces.

THE READING LIST: I reread a few favorite novels this month but mostly it was a month for reading short stories. I love when I discover new writers and I discovered a few this month whose work I’m going to look for. Here’s a partial list of the ones that stuck with me:Read More

Working Behind the Scenes Lately

I’ve been busy trying to catch up with marketing and publishing—both of which require new programs and courses and climbing learning curves. Some days I feel that I might as well just beat my head against a wall, that’s how little progress I make. But persistence pays off, as it does in all avenues of life, and I’m slowly climbing the curves. The bad thing for me is that it all takes time away from my writing, which is the part of this job that I like best.Read More
