No, I haven't been watching the Muppet Movie again (if you're wondering what I'm talking about, see the video at the end of this post). And no, this doesn't have anything to do with the amount of fiber I have in my diet as it relates to my colon health. What is moving right along … Continue reading Movin’ Write Along
Inside The Maze: The Legend of the Minotaur
Here it is less than three weeks from Release Day for The Maze: Book Three of the Osteria Chronicles, I've got all the absolute final versions loaded (and by "final," I mean "if I have to proofread this book once more I will gouge my eyes out"), the pre-orders are trickling in, and I only … Continue reading Inside The Maze: The Legend of the Minotaur

Today, it's … Continue reading The Book Cover Showdown Champion!!
All Hail the Glorious Outline!
This week brought about an excellent opportunity to break out my Happy Dance Shoes and kick up my heels in ecstatic, delirious, over-the-moon-with-elation joy because The Outline is complete.

Writing Time Trepidation
Although we're still a couple weeks out from the next Friday the 13th, and Wednesday the 27th just doesn't have an ominous tone to it, I am a little afraid today. I haven't written about it much, but I am still working on The Maze, the third book in my Osteria Chronicles series. I kind … Continue reading Writing Time Trepidation
