I know I haven’t been much of a blogger recently. Besides participating in a special Fall promotion for New Adult authors and sharing some cover reveals for author-friends, pretty much everything else has been promotions and updates about Wrath, and before that, The Space Between. Lame, I know. *hangs head in shame* For the record, however, Wrath kicked my arse. Literally. I still have the bruise. Okay, okay, not literally. But it sure felt like it! Still does. The only physical evidence to my arse, though, is the widening of it. Every book packs on a few pounds and Wrath was worse … Continue reading

Somehow, the calendar shows that it’s already February. February! But, wasn’t New Year’s just last week? I wish, for everyone I know, that we could start the year over. Because, so far, 2013 sucks. Big time. I personally spent most of January in my writing cave, working on The Space Between and starting Soul Savers Book 5, and haven’t really left this month either. Days pass while I huddle in my cocoon, living in different worlds. But I’m not totally out of it, because I just can’t keep myself away from the sparklies and pretties on Facebook and Twitter.

Sometime in early 2011, I joined a host of other authors and pledged to donate $500 to First Book if any of my books made it to the Top 100 of ALL Kindle Paid Bestsellers List.

Thanks to all of you, it became a reality in October when Promise topped out at #54 of All.Kindle.Titles. I just … Continue reading

Age is such a concrete number yet so ambiguous. I mean, have you ever really felt your age? I’m not talking about when you’ve worked out hard, painted the house or did yard work and you’re feeling the creak in your bones. I’m talking about going through life and feeling you’re as old as you are. When I was a teen, adults marveled at how mature I was, but I think I stopped maturing somewhere between 18 and 24. Because I really have never felt any older than that and still don’t. Not in my head, heart and soul. I … Continue reading

On The Writer’s Voice earlier this week, I wrote about what inspired me to write Genesis. Inspiration for new story ideas come to writers all the time, in various ways and forms, sometimes in the strangest place or from the tiniest little thought. But to turn those ideas into stories takes more than creative inspiration. In fact, everyone comes up with ideas. It’s what we do with those ideas – whether for a story, a painting or drawing, a new recipe, a business or anything else – that counts. And that inspiration comes from within. The passing of Steve Jobs … Continue reading
