I’ve seen a lot of inventive posts over the last few weeks that play on the twelve days of Christmas theme. Of course my muse latched onto this, and sent me the twelve days of the Fractured instead! My dad always loved Christmas. He had many traditions, some of which we…

Touching Base

These day’s I find it incredibly difficult to keep in touch with everyone and everything I’m supposed to be doing. And yet, the busier I get the more I seem to “take on” because “someone has to in order to get it done”. Have you been there before? Are you there right now with me?Continue reading “Touching Base”

Repercussions of an Online-Personal Attack

Looking For Readers – Like You!

Every author does his or her darndest to entice readers to pick up their book(s). I’ve noticed lately that my 2nd book, Cadence of Consequences has sold well but I have few reviews to entice other readers to keep buying… This tells me it’s time to offer a reward for reviews! If you sign upContinue reading “Looking For Readers – Like You!”

Fun & Laughter – Fall 2015

This past autumn brought with it more local opportunities than ever for selling my books and hanging out with friends, fans, and other awesome writers. Not wanting to inundate my blog followers with a ton of ‘event updates’ I thought I’d put together a little slideshow to showcase the fun & laughter. Merry Christmas andContinue reading “Fun & Laughter – Fall 2015”
