I'm still working on the outline for the first book in the three book series I'm working on. Since I'm reading the draft that I originally wrote a few years ago, it's exciting to see what I was building. I'm dropping back into the story and I'm finding it fun to do this exploring. There's … Continue reading Still outlining
Rained a lot today. Thunderstorms weren't as dramatic as I initially thought they might be. Just rain. Even the occasional thunder we heard didn't scare Merlin away, though Bella hunkered down and Coville did have some nervousness (which isn't usual for him, and since it was at the beginning of the storm we actually thought … Continue reading Wash, rinse, repeat
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

Artwork will be posted as I have time. I am only shipping in the U.S. right now and the way it is set up I can't even … Continue reading The store is open

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 had a fascinating experience today in the way of a fantastic leap of personal growth. First, we need to step back to sometime around 1995. Among a course of other things going on in my life, I was returning to attending writers conferences which I hadn't been able to do while I was going … Continue reading Okay, wow!
I received an email from someone today asking my thoughts on a couple questions he had. I spent several hours replying to this email because it needed unpacked. Yet, at the end, he will have to make his own decisions. I thought I'd share a bit from that email here in case someone else needs … Continue reading So you want to be an indie?
I spent several hours today working on my online store. It's definitely getting closer. I keep having to remind myself that it will be good once it's all set up. But I had to go through and make major changes to it today. Well, actually I had to go back through every item I had … Continue reading Inching Closer
As predicted, the wind blew and it got cold. It was definitely a good day to spend in the recording booth. I recorded two chapters. Then while my son and I watched a movie, I mastered five tracks on the book bringing me to current on it. I still need to listen thought and take … Continue reading Recording day
