Monday Grump and Cool Personalized Ebook Recs

Posted on

It’s Monday.  I’m feeling like Garfield–you know, when he’s wearing his teddy bear bedroom slippers, and holding on to that cup of coffee like a lifeline and glaring out at the world through sleep slitted eyes?  Yeah that.  And yes, possibly lasagna would make it all better… It was a long weekend.  It’s already been […]

Vindication

Posted on

So I wrote a couple weeks back about the one star review I’d received on Amazon for Blindsight. Basically I did my job as an author, totally hooked this reader, but I did not tie things up in a matter she found satisfactory, and she was upset she would have to wait until fall (or […]

Home Again, Home Again

Posted on

It’s Friday.  Okay, no it’s really Thursday night as I write this, but by the time you read it, it will be Friday. I’m finally on my way home after a long week on the road for the Evil Day Job.  Between work, I plowed through Divergent and Hourglass (I hated Myra for about 30 […]

Things That Make You Go Hmmm

Posted on

I got the most complimentary 1 star review ever the other day on Blindsight.  A reader on Amazon left this review: I absolutely hate when I believe I am downloading a short story and it is an inconclusive teaser! The FULL story is not even available until the Fall. I hate being totally ensnared in […]

My Crazy Life

Posted on

I think I attract insanity like a magnet.  Seriously.  Because I am this freakishly organized person who cannot tolerate chaos and seeks to create order out of everything, I believe that the universe conspires to fill my life with crazy. I’m probably supposed to learn something. Case in point: Last Wednesday I looked at a […]

In The Realm of Awesome

Posted on

Free-Ebooks.net mentioned Blindsight in their latest newsletter.  The downloads have almost doubled overnight. Writer pal Sharon Gerlach tweeted me this last night: For those of you who don’t know what you’re looking at, that is a post by me that’s showing up in Zemanta’s WordPress plugin to find Possibly Related Articles to link to your […]

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Update

Posted on

Spring has sprung! Yesterday was the first spring blitz of the yard (the clover and weeds had taken over) with mowing and weed-eating and pruning.  There’s a massive pile of bamboo at the street from cleaning that up too.  I wore my sandals for the first time this year.  And we had a cookout with […]

(Sort of) New Release: Blindsight

Posted on

So I posted about 3 weeks ago about the release of the Kiss Me, Kill Me paranormal romance anthology in which my Mirus short story Blindsight is featured.  Several of you bought the anthology (proceeds of which are going to GreaterGood.org).  Thanks for that!  But really, I wasn’t getting as much promo mileage out of […]
