Tough and thriving

September 20, 2018

Good news: I didn’t get sick. The OnGuard and Wellness Formula did the trick once again.

Knock on wood that it continues.

Yet, it was pointed out that I may have been what some may call “a little preachy” about my stance on health and wellness. What? No cigarettes? No alcohol? How can a person live?

My answer: how about a lot healthier!

Duh! Read the rest of this entry »

Books Gone Bad

July 24, 2018

I am so thrilled to announce that Quest for the Three Books is in a new bundle coming out from BundleRabbit.

Books Gone Bad

BR-BooksGoneBad-QuestCover

Much as the title says, it’s all about books that are not the pleasant little tales we like to think sit on our shelves quietly, making no noise, but there to comfort us when we need them.

No, these books have twists, turns, magic, betrayal… oh, so dangerous to touch.  Read the rest of this entry »


Progress – July 22, 2018

July 23, 2018

Pre-bike ride of 12 miles:

I survived.

At least I was good during the bike ride and recovered well enough to go walk another half mile at the gym and then went and walked around an “craft” show. I use that loosely because it was supposed to be a craft show but was mostly an MLM show. Sigh.

Then I went home and got sick. Read the rest of this entry »


Free Fiction: Uploaded on the 4th of July

July 11, 2018

I was sorely tempted to post this last week and delay the ending of Onesong by one week, but I figured I might have readers coming at me with hatchets if I did that. **grin**

I have enough adventures like that already!

I am kind of disappointed that I couldn’t post this on the 4th of July, but it’s not a very happy story, so I thought it might be best if I wait anyway.

This is a story I wrote last year. My reader sent my comments back, but I honestly don’t think I’ve incorporated them into the story yet, so you’re seeing this pretty much just as my reader did. Nothing about this story here is final. This story kind of got lost in the events of last July — I’d really thought it would be my July 2018 release. But, yeah, llama face.

Obviously I’m still tired and words are not my thing right now.

I thought you might all like a short break before I start something else. I really did like running with a novel. We shall see what strikes my fancy for next week, but for now, a short story.

Enjoy!

Dreamers, dream!

August 1, 2011

I’ve been feeling a little guilty since my last post. After all, who am I to shoot down someone’s dream?

I still think I was mostly right. Feel free to disagree if you want.

Let’s say, however, that I wanted to get a painting into the Louvre or the Smithsonian. Straight up, let me as you if you think my art is going to qualify to belong in either of these museums. So, what do you think?

No! Not a chance.

At this moment, my art isn’t worthy to belong in any museum. I haven’t gained the right to be there. I do feel that some of my pieces are beginning to be worthy of a gallery.

So it’s not a matter of don’t dream big. Heck, I hope all my readers do have big dreams. Imagination inspires (and I like to preach that). Just remember that those big goals do have a path that needs to be walked first before you reach them. That means starting small in your own backyard. Now go for it.
