I'd hoped to have this book out last year. Then it became April of this year. Then July. Then September. Yeah, not all of it was me, but some of it was. At last, I just had to knuckle down on this book and get it out. I decided it was the best I could … Continue reading Better late
Well, the soreness from weeding my garden yesterday wasn't as bad as I feared. Yes, I woke up stiff and sore, but I'd taken valerian last night to relax the muscles. As soon as I got up and got moving it wasn't too bad. As if weeding yesterday wasn't enough, the weather cooperated enough for … Continue reading Raking today
It feels a little strange to be sitting between projects right now. It feels like I'm mentally tagging along for the ride and waiting to see where I go. I've spent the last few days since finishing the manuscript for Palladium focused on rounding out Sword and Shield (Sacred Knight book 6). When I was … Continue reading Tagging along for the ride
Cirvel's story, Palladium, is done. This finishes all the stories in the Sacred Knight/Onesong save the world epic adventure tale. Okay, so there is one more story I want to write which I know is in this world and it's Elliot's tale. But, aside from a cameo appearance from Cirvel, it will have nothing to … Continue reading Palladium is done
I finished the 8th Loki adventure today, and then I cried. I should have finished the story yesterday. The end was in sight. I knew where I was going and what needed to be done, but I needed to go shopping. After five hours of driving around town to get all my shopping in as … Continue reading Today of all days
I am thrilled to let you all know that Walk the Path has been released. This is the second and final part in the Onesong series (unless I decide to also put Cirvel's portion of the story into this series too -- who knows!). Still, this completes Rivic's adventure which started in Tangled Magic. You'll … Continue reading Onesong – book #2 released
Trust the process - an affirmation for telling stories even when the path doesn't make sense.
When I wrote about Cirvel and his genie lamps last week, I had another quote from that scene which I knew would make a great follow-up. Here goes: This is Cirvel's response to Rivic asking why Cirvel would have the genie lamps if genies are such abominations. I love Cirvel's answer and the implications that … Continue reading Collectibles
Since I'm working with Cirvel in three different novels that I'm currently writing, I have really dug into his character. I feel that one of the traits that makes Cirvel such a delicious character (the kind where you want to hang out from him while you also know you should run away fast) is that … Continue reading When delicious characters sparkle
Recently, I went through Tangled Magic to find some of my favorite spots in the book. This was one that came up: I really doubt that Rivic missed a lesson on how to fly. Whatever lesson he skipped out on was probably dull and boring, honestly. I just bet he will never skip class again.
