I have a laptop again! Thanks to my dear friend Erin Palette‘s quick thinking and organization efforts and the generosity of her Facebook network, I am now the proud owner of a 2005 HP tablet/notebook device. Yes, 2005, so it’s not exactly state-of-the-art, but it’s fine for writing, blogging, surfing, and light graphic design work. And it …
Well, my fiction writing and publishing career has pretty much come to a screeching halt with the demise of my laptop. There is a ray of hope in that someone on Facebook is supposed to be sending me an old laptop they had lying around not getting any use, but it’s looking more and more …
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks as we’ve been dealing with some health issues that my husband’s been having, running around juggling doctors’ appointments and deadlines. He’s on the mend now, and yesterday was a badly needed do-nothing day for us both. Today’s only slightly more productive as we make the house presentable for …
Thanks to a muchly appreciated last-minute rescue, the domain is saved! So I don’t have to move this or my freelance writing site or anything else. Yay! While the site was down, I had a free Kindle giveaway of Restless Spirits that went swimmingly. It stayed at Number 1 Free in the Ghosts and Haunted …
A current shortage of funds means I might be losing this domain. There’s a good chance that this site and all of its subdomains will be suspended tomorrow. If I can’t renew the domain before the 12 day grace period is up, I’ll have to forfeit it because I definitely won’t be able to afford …
Out of all of my books, the one by far that has gone through the biggest identity crisis is Restless Spirits. It started out as a paranormal fantasy novel, although it’s kind of chick lit, written as it is from the first person POV of a twenty-something woman trying to sort out her afterlife. The cover had a …
On Sunday night, Audra McDonald won her record-breaking sixth Tony award. In her acceptance speech, she thanked her parents for “disobeying the doctor’s orders and not medicating their hyperactive daughter” and directing her energies into theater instead. This has sparked some debate on the Internet (really, is there anything that doesn’t spark some debate on the …
Those Fiverr gigs I mentioned last week have been keeping me busy — hence the slowdown in posting here. Unfortunately, it also resulted in a slowdown (or more like a full stoppage) on my novel WIP, but I have plans to get back into that tonight. I know I don’t usually blog in the middle …
If you’ve followed me online for very long, then you probably know that I’ve spent the last couple of years doing a lot of writing for Demand Studios to help pay the bills (and you probably also know that it hasn’t been my favorite, but at least it was fairly reliable and steady pay). Well, we …
 Dominion of the Damned is currently a free Kindle download on Amazon, both domestically  and internationally. It will remain free through this Sunday, and then it will go back to its regular price of US$3.99. So get your free copy while you can! I have to say, I’m pretty pleased with its performance so far. Today …
