On The Subject of Profanity In Fiction

Posted on

As an author, you know when you put any book out there that somebody, somewhere, isn’t going to like it.  You can’t please all the people all the time.  And that’s fine.  There are readers out there for everybody and everything (as proved by the popularity of the dino erotica, but that’s another matter).  As […]

I’m just getting around to this over a quick breakfast before running in to work.  It’s been a super busy week with the teenager moving in.  She’s just about settled.  We got art hung yesterday.  Now she’s just working on organizing her desk and office supplies. Hubs and I took her to see Ghostbusters (original 1984 […]

Sorry I’ve Been MIA

Posted on

I haven’t been around lately.  I’ve been a busy busy girl! I’ve been working my way through a marketing class, which has led to some changes around here.  This is kind of the in between version of my website.  I have actually started building a brand new site with Cloudpress.  Cloudpress is a nifty concept.
