Touching, stewing, and getting Faceless

So wow, it’s been awhile! I kicked June boot camp’s ass and ended up with first draft of TOUCH, my new YA paranormal romance.  I spent the first few weeks of July polishing it up with the help of my awesome Army and had my first query out on the 21st.  My first request came … Continue reading

The Editing Song

So this week I’ve been editing/adding to Disappear.  Pushing ahead because as of June first, it’s on to my boot camp book, The Reaper.  So of course, today, instead of editing, what was I doing? This… Yes.  I’m very easy to distract.  It’s a good thing I don’t sleep much or I’d never get anything … Continue reading

I’m a shy person.  No, really, it’s true!  I’m so shy it’s debilitating at times.  Maybe I don’t come off that way, but trust me, it’s there.  I used to think, hey, no big deal.  As a writer I don’t need to deal with people.  I can hole up in my little corner of the … Continue reading

Snow pictures

Something to look forward to?  There’s an evil rumor that another bad storm is heading our way next week… Woohoo!

Digging out

All I can say is thank God it’s over. I’m in New York, and we got hit with that crazy storm last week.  It lasted from Tuesday night until yesterday.  Hell it’s actually still snowing, though thankfully not amounting to anything. Yet. We lost power in the early hours on Wednesday and only got it … Continue reading
