I released a new book this week, Twisted Sister. It’s an experiment for me on a couple of fronts.
First, I love reading romance and I love writing romance but I’ve been focusing on mainly writing and marketing my science fiction for the last two years. I sort of let my romance books hum in the background without giving them much love.
I have a romance series called Romancing the Gods. Each book in that series takes a pairing from Greek mythology and re-imagines the characters in a modern setting. It’s a lot of fun to write and I squeeze it in between my other books sort of like a palate cleanser. I’m working on the fourth book in the series now.Read More
I hadn’t thought about what I wanted to say today, that’s why this is a hodgepodge post.
The calendar says spring but it snowed all day yesterday. Quite disheartening really so I’m posting a photo of wild lupines I took several years ago at a wildlife management area in southern Minnesota.Read More
I have been working on a number of projects lately, not all writing related so I thought I’d share a little here.
Writing is a sedentary and solitary endeavor and it’s easy to become a writing chair potato. Now that winter is finally loosening its grip on my part of the world I am getting outside more. It’s not quite time to dig into the gardening/yard work, but it’s nice enough to take longer walks. So far we are walking our dead-end gravel road and increasing our mileage slowly as we get back into shape. When all the snow is gone we’ll tackle the woods’ trails which are far more challenging.Read More
I know. What do any of those things have to do with one another? Not much, really. But today is another snowy day and I took time from writing to watch the UCONN Husky Women beat USF in the American Athletic Conference semi-final.
Anyone who watches women’s basketball knows the Huskies have dominated the landscape for the last twenty years, winning an unprecedented 11 national championships. The reason they win is yes, talent, but not just talent.Read More
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
