Fun Stuff…With Deadlines

So much to tell you about that I won’t get to all of it. First, though, all of the Colliding Worlds books are out! Six science fiction collections, featuring 20 short stories in each book. Ten of the stories are from me and ten are by Dean. We had a blast putting these together. The books were the subject of a successful Kickstarter earlier this […]

One Day Deals, Storybundle, and a Maelstrom

We’re down to 24 or so hours on the Return of The Fey Kickstarter. I asked the Fey readers to give me a kick in the butt, by joining the Kickstarter to give me a real deadline on a new Fey novella. Usually I try to have work done before I do a Kickstarter, but in this case, I needed a real kick start. It […]

Holiday Writing Workshops Half-Off Sale

The headline here says it all. Because those of you in Europe are going through the second wave of COVID, while those of us in the States are still in our first wave (inundation) thanks to the worst pandemic response in the world, WMG, Dean and I decided to do another half-off our online writing workshops again. This time, the sale has a holiday twist. […]

My Favorite Time of Year

I love the holiday season, starting with Halloween in October. Even though it’s currently 90 degrees here Las Vegas, I am drinking tea out of my Halloween mug. (I bought 2 even though I don’t need them when I got my flu shot two weeks ago. Apparently, Las Vegas will not have fall this year. We’re moving from summer to winter in the space of […]

Business Musings: The Year Ahead…Again

In early January, I arrogantly wrote a post about the year ahead, reminding writers that this was an election year, so they needed to plan for a sales slowdown in the fall. I even said I wasn’t sure if the election would have repercussions in the spring and summer, since I was expecting a protracted primary season. And, oh, yeah! The impeachment. Remember that? Discussed […]

Visions of the Future

About a week ago, I got cheeky on Facebook, and said that figured the slogan for 2020 was What Fresh Hell Is This? (Hat-tip to Dorothy Parker, for memorializing a phrase that came into vogue…in the 1920s.) Every day of 2020 has brought something new and world-altering, from the coronavirus to Brexit to all the stuff happening in the U.S. to…well, I’m sure there’s something […]

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 […]

Charity Work

I do a lot of charitable giving, usually for local causes here in Las Vegas. I learned about some of those causes by doing 5K runs all last year. Dean and I are doing more runs this year, starting as the weather cools (in theory). The first, though, is for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. St. Jude’s asks us to fundraise, which I’ve been doing. And […]
