Happy New Year Bloglandia!! If you're reading this, that's a good sign that you aren't still blind drunk from last night. And that your hangover headache isn't too excruciating. So congrats! Excellent start to 2020, right? As you can see, Finn McSpool may have overindulged last night. Luckily, while he's sleeping it off, I can … Continue reading Writing Goals: Did I Win 2019?
It's not often in this politically-charged world that I dare ask anyone's opinion, but it's come that time in the book production process when I'm seeking input, opinions, thoughts, and comments. Of course, I'm trusting that you guys are all kind enough not to turn this into a sound bite-riddled shouting match unlike most "debates" … Continue reading Opinions Please! Book Cover Survey
I experimented with using the self-publishing technique of rapid-release for my Domna series. Here's my overall thoughts on the strategy, the pros and cons of it, and a promise I'm making to myself and my readers for future books.

In the blog and newsletter surveys I've posted to assist me in … Continue reading Time for Another Reveal

Something that has me a little scared. But isn't that the sign of a great invention? Just think of when Edward Jenner started … Continue reading That’s My (Writing) Life Sorted
Sorry, this post has nothing to do with my daydreaming (or night dreaming) about the devilishly handsome Tom Ellis, aka "Lucifer." In case you don't know who I'm typing about, here's what I mean....
