Saving The World and Historical Mysteries, and A Plethora of Writing Tips

I love having an excuse to use the word “plethora.” And really, I need it here. I’ve been busy with the Business Master Class, then trying to catch up on a lot of work, not to mention a bit of exhaustion from the schedule. (Yes, you Writing With Chronic Illness readers, you know what I’m talking about.) So, with all of that, I’ve been remiss […]

I edited the two […]

Sorcery, Steam, and The Angel of Death

I feel like I’ve been assisting you with your summer reading this year. A previous space bundle, a bunch of cool anthologies, a new Kristine Grayson novel, and a new Kristine Grayson-edited Fiction River. I’d say what more could you ask for, but seriously, if you’re a voracious reader like me, you could ask for a lot more. (And maybe get it too!) So…with you […]

Summer Sizzles

I don’t have to tell most Americans that, after the week they just had. The hottest heat index in some cases ever over more than half the country. What can you do besides sit in some shade and read? Not much, unless you have air conditioning. Thank heavens we have it here in Las Vegas, or I couldn’t live here at all. But I remember […]

Space Opera Bundling, Romance Secrets, And A Reminder

I figured Gavin would get your attention. When he looks at me like that, he usually gets mine. I promised you a week or so ago that I would have a lot of fun announcements, and I do! I’m going to try to spread the news out a bit, but that’s tough, because there’s so much of it. Fun Fantasy Romance First, for those of […]

The Month of News Begins With Deals And Other Fun Things

As those of you who support me on Patreon already know, my September will be busy, busy, busy when it comes to publications and promotions. (By the way, there are three Business Musings posts there that have not yet been on this site. I’m getting ahead, finally!) Today’s news involves a Storybundle. The great thing about Storybundles is that they provide a deal to the […]

We do one every two years to refresh the subscriber list and maybe convince a few of you to give the anthology series a try. You can get back issues as well as current ones, just one issue, or an entire subscription. I wrote and narrated the video, but the cool […]

Recommended Reading List: October, 2017

I’m line editing another Fiction River, so some of my reading time has been taken up with that. And I had a workshop at the end of the month, the Business Master Class, which kept us all going 24/7 (okay, there was a little sleeping in the middle of it all). So less reading time than I wanted. Of course, there’s always less reading time […]
