Throwback Thursday: Best Cherries Ever

I was actually thinking of these very same cherries this morning, when a friend in France mentioned she’d picked three kilos of cherries. I remembered a summer several years ago, when my sister-in-law, who lived near Grenoble, sent a shoebox of cherries home with my daughter in her suitcase. We enjoyed the heck out of […] Read more…

Emergency Flowers

As I type this, it’s snowing outside. I’ve lost count of how many snowstorms have come through this winter, but the last patches of snow were finally melting when I got up this morning, and now a new layer of snow is fast turning the ground white again. I’m not going to post a photo […] Read more…

Temptation, now for the great price of 99¢!

My publisher decided to push Temptation in a promotion blitz. They knocked the price down to $.99 and had it accepted at BookBub, “a free daily email that notifies you about deep discounts on acclaimed ebooks.” They only accept about 20 percent of the books that are submitted to them, so that in itself is […] Read more…

Why I don’t dispense writing advice

I love reading blog posts by authors dispensing writing advice; I really do. Some of the best writing books are written by authors—many by authors you’ve never heard of (Sol Stein is one). While their books may not be bestsellers, many writers are better equipped to tell you how to write a bestselling novel because […] Read more…

New Year Writing Resolution

I got a Fitbit for Christmas, and I’m wondering if someone makes a Fitbit for writing. Like, a device you strap on your wrist that counts your words. Instead of 10,000 steps, I’d have to write 10,000 words to win. Actually, I’d have a fit all right if I wrote that many words in a day–that […] Read more…

Alternative titles for Redemption

I got tagged on Facebook by Rumer Haven in a writing game called Eight Terrible Titles. The idea is to randomly let your cursor fall onto a spot within your manuscript eight times, and voila! Eight truly terrible title ideas. So of course I decided to change the rules a bit and use my recently released […] Read more…

In which I complain about tea at Tea and Strumpets

I was invited to write a guest post at Tea and Strumpets, maybe because they heard I was a fanatic about tea, or maybe because they heard I was a strumpet. Either way, I had fun writing about my favorite subject, and injecting a wee bit of writing advice in there too. What, you didn’t […] Read more…

Bitty booklets have arrived!

Look what came in the mail! I ordered these Bitty Booklets from Laron at Ninth Moon designs a couple of weeks ago. I decided I wanted something to show off the new cover of Temptation as well as promote Redemption, and these Bitty Booklets were perfect. Laron came up with the design, using a background […] Read more…

Adjustments

It’s been a little over a month since I packed up my bags and moved overseas. To be precise, a band of movers came and packed up everything I own, including my desk, put it all on giant crates, and that’s the last time I saw my earthly possessions. Except for my beloved iMac, which […] Read more…
