Hello Bloglandia!! Before anyone reaches for the phone to call the FBI, just note that I am not being held hostage, nor am holding anyone hostage. Which exactly what a hostage victim or a hostage taker would say, isn't it? But let's get to this post. So, after nearly two years of no vacations, I … Continue reading On Hostages & Facing Fears
Hello Again Book Nerds of Bloglandia! Sorry, that post title should be Friday Fiction Freebies & Steals, but I was trying my hand at alliteration. Yes, trying and failing, but still. Anywayyyy.... It's Friday (on my side of the International Date Line) and that means you might be looking for something new for the weekend. … Continue reading Fiction Friday Freebies & Fteals
Hello Book Lovers of Bloglandia! That post title is no joke. There's a new way you can read my books for free. Well, okay, I better clarify this. I'm not dropping the price of all my books to zero cents. What kind of loony bird do you think I am. Wait, don't answer that. See, … Continue reading Go on, read my books for free! No, really.
Hello Bloglandia! So June was an amazing month in my writing world. Unfortunately the month had to end with The Horrible Heat Wave That Proves the Evils of 2020 Aren't Done With Us Yet. Not to load you down with a lengthy weather report, but here in Portland we're normally in the high 70s at … Continue reading June’s Writing Round-up
Hello Book Fiends of Bloglandia! So, I managed to survive the heat wave in Portland...although I think the cats might have melted and portions of my garden are now "extra crispy".

Hello Humor-Seeking Humans! It book review time, and I know I'm a bit early for my monthly reading round up (the official one is coming next week), but I'm also a bit late with this review as I read the book way back in early May. Yes, it's a bit of time paradox! Anyway, A … Continue reading Cat Chess Anyone? A Melee of Mages (Book Review)
Hello Bloglandia! How's your June going? Any plans for summer (or for winter, if you're on the upside-down part of the globe)? My June, so far, has been going swimmingly...and not just because we FINALLY got some rain here in Portland. See, I kind of, sort of wrote a book. Okay, a first draft of … Continue reading Oh No! I’ve Become a Pantser.
Hello Bloglandia! (Note: I also ramble on about this in my latest Video Update at about the 8:45 mark, if you're interested in watching me get all giddy about shiny new things). If you ever visited my Payhip Bookstore, you might remember it as looking a bit...well, hideous. See, Payhip didn't make it easy to arrange … Continue reading The Marvelous Bookstore Makeover (with Celebratory Discount)
Hello Bloglandia! Egad! I blinked and May disappeared. Anyone else experience this blinky-time warp phenomenon? I guess that means I need to make the most of June...or just never blink again. I better put in an order for a case of eye drops. Anyway...if you're not in the mood for reading today, you'll get a … Continue reading Take That, Neil! (May’s Writing Round-up)
