1-800-Mischief audiobook

Week’s happenings:  From the cover picture above, can you tell what’s coming? Yes, I hope to have the audio for 1-800-Mischief uploaded to ACX by the end of the month. I had previously recorded the audio and so far it sounds solid enough that I’m going to use it.  I figure I’m almost halfway through editing it right now — still some touch ups to make, but it’s coming along nicely.

Loki’s calling

January 5, 2013

I’m writing insanely again. There is absolutely no other way to phrase it. Every moment I’m awake I feel like I should be writing. Every cell wants to be immersed in story. I hardly even sleep because after only a couple hours I wake up and want to get back to it. I haven’t felt this way in years.

Now, there was a time in my life where a dear friend expected to see 10 pages a day out of me. I’d practically write all night and I’d dream about upcoming scenes while I was out on the ranch driving my tractor around in circles (grinning at the memory), then in the afternoon she’d come over and sit on the couch while I sat in my office chair and I’d watch her read the pages. I loved seeing her emotions as she read. She’d laugh and I’d want to know what had evoked the response. We both loved every moment.

I like my writing wasn’t done until someone else reads it. In honor of that, I’m giving you a sneak peek of my newest series, Call Loki. It starts off with 1-800-Mischief. My son and I have already lined out a whole series of titles. The beginning of another book came to me today. I don’t see any of them being real long, novella length probably rather than novel length. I talk more about it on my page set up for the preview.


So, if you’re interested, I’ll let you get over there and read it.


I’m going to get back to writing now.


Unless you’re going to let me come watch you while you read! (Grin)

Hey, the phone’s for you. Loki’s calling.
