This week, I started the cuts on Tangled Magic and Walk the Path. It was frustratingly hard to make that first surgical incision, yet it had to be done.
The little voice in my head kept telling me that I should be working on designing some covers. “You’re not finding this fun because you don’t have covers designed for the next few books, like Cirvel’s story. Yeah,go design a cover for that. Just a quick little jaunt to see what you can find for cover material, it won’t hurt. You’re just sitting here with you head in your hands anyway.”
Fortunately, I recognized the liar for what she was: a distraction! I often shot back with, “Well, I don’t even know the title yet, so it’s kind of hard to build a cover without knowing the title. How about you go and work on that?” Read the rest of this entry »

Loki did not do this. He swears on his immortal life. (No, you didn’t just hear him snicker!)
In this case, Loki is putting forth a gnome to be a scapegoat:
Personally, I don’t think it was the gnome, not this time. Even with as creepy as he is:
Watch out, he’ll steal your soul! Read the rest of this entry »

It’s one thing for Loki to apologize for a mess on the floor. Okay, he might have done that.
But he certainly did not (read as: DID NOT!!!!) destroy the ceiling of the mall. You can’t blame him for that.
He needs some ice cream.
(Walks away shaking his head, wondering where he can get the nearest coffee flavored ice cream. He really needs it)
Coming August 28th! Pre-order now.

Welcome, Loki believers!
If you read my progress blog from Monday, you saw that 1-800-IceBaby is now up for pre-order and releasing on August 28, 2018. Yippee!
I know, you’re thinking that August is so far away. It’s hot now and you want Loki to come cool you down.
Okay, okay, I will provide you with a special treat — a scene that got cut from the story. I really didn’t want to do it, but alas, it just didn’t fit. It had to go.
But that’s fine because you can see it now and have a small spoonful of the delicious delicacy that is coming. Read the rest of this entry »

Week’s happenings: This week doesn’t look too much different than last week, except that I did some painting. It was busy though. I began rearranging my office last week. I really wanted to be able to set my easel up in my office. With my son’s help, we got that accomplished. There’s still a lot of cleanup and organizing that needs to be done, but at least I’m able to get in there to work now.
I also revised my word count spreadsheet to count consecutive weeks of hitting the word count. Yes, it’s hard to write to a certain word count each and every day. Life happens. I Read the rest of this entry »
