Holiday Story for a Holiday Weekend

Since life circumstances have settled some, I was able to finish the edits and formatting on The Hidden Gift. I’m waiting to hear from my web designer that everything is in place so I can notify my subscribers. One of the perks of signing up for my newsletter is getting previously unpublished stories, new releases early, and special pricing. I started writing about this story back in November. And now that it’s almost Valentine’s Day, it seems appropriate to publish a romantic suspense about long-time friends.

Tucson Festival of Books is coming up! I’ve been working a bit each day on getting things ready. I’ve ordered a few print copies. I’ve updated my pricing. I know what I want to do for all the ebook only titles I have, the free short story to give away, and what to bring to display my books. I won’t know anyone in the booth this year. And I don’t know how many readers will show up to see what new books they can buy and authors they can meet. But I’m hoping for good weather and hungry readers.

Today, I’ll be returning to my two writing projects: My Voice, Vol. 2 and The Bookie. According to my calendar, I have two weeks to finish both. Ah, the positives of having intentions… and the practice of adjusting my production schedule. After these two weeks, I’m to start book 3 in the Waldman Investigations series and work on the short story prequel.

Whether you celebrate the calendar day of hearts and flowers or not, give yourself and others some love.

The Words

Photo by Michele Venne There are times, as a writer, when words are my friend. Other times, I can't fish the one I want from my brain that will make the sentence or paragraph or scene what I want it to be. I also know that sometimes a slight interruption breaks the...

So Many Hats

Photo by Michele Venne Sometimes I know why I'm tired at the end of the day. If I went for a long trail ride, had lots of clients, squeezed in errands or life tasks, by ten o'clock I'm done. But sometimes it doesn't seem like I've got that many to-dos on my calendar....
