...because you KNOW I don't do these things for myself as an author or even publisher (yet). *gasp* An actual honest-to-goodness author event? Yes, my darling minions.....well, it's called Phoenix Comicon and it is the first weekend in June. Feel free to bring forth birthday tidings, and if they are of the food variety, let's… Continue reading Upcoming Event(s)
Sneak Peek: ASSASSIN, Take 3
The next night is Girls’ Night Out, and boy do I ever need it. Killian’s not happy that I’m running off with the girls, but he gets it. Sometimes, you just need a night out with your friends. Once the last gal—Lillian—climbs into our rented limo, we’re off, and I sigh heavily because my best… Continue reading Sneak Peek: ASSASSIN, Take 3
Skip a Starbucks Day!
...and yes, we're doing this again because it's a great cause! In November 2010, friend and author CJ Redwine and her husband Clint adopted a beautiful little bundle of joy into their family, and I was happy to participate in their "Skip a Starbucks Day" event then. I held a contest and gave away prizes,… Continue reading Skip a Starbucks Day!
Skin: an Excerpt from Dusk of Death
...and I'm pretty sure I've shared this part before, but let's just start over because there's more coming. Skin Such anguish I feel, such sorrow.

FYI on Spring Copy Edits
...because Spring Break, yo! I will be unavailable for copy and line edits March 14-23 so I can work on my own writing/editing. My editor has promised to have my book Dusk of Death back to me by then, and I can't wait to work on it. I'd like to release it this summer, especially at Phoenix Comicon.… Continue reading FYI on Spring Copy Edits
Why Kick-Ass Heroines Need to Exist
Are you waiting for Prince Charming to come rescue you from your common life? Why? Do you need to be rescued? We have raised generations of girls who think this way, and I'll admit that after being raised on Disney stories about princesses being rescued from whatever fate held them back, I was one of… Continue reading Why Kick-Ass Heroines Need to Exist
It’s a Techie World
...and apparently us techies can't operate a two-way radio.
Let’s Face It…
I suck at blogging. I really, really do. And that's okay. I can admit it. That's a step forward, right? Of course it is because I'm not in denial about it. But this year, I'm making a few changes, mainly because I need to get myself organized again. Let's please not call them New Year's Resolutions. Those are only a To Do list that *may* last a month. The changes I'm talking about are long-term, because that's how I roll.

Was the last two hours of work before I would begin my two-week winter vacation writing extravaganza!
