The End of a Busy Productive Year!

My end of year summations are typically about invisible things. Invisible, because though I’m very busy and working hard, what I do every day isn’t visible to the world at large until something is published. Books take time and all sorts of things can delay them. But this year saw the publication of a new […]

I’m on Wattpad!

Things are going really, really well. The rewrite on the sequel to If Wishes Were Spaceships is going much better than expected. Beta readers didn’t find anything horrendously wrong with it. It still doesn’t have a final title, but in all other respects things are moving along at a good clip. I can thank Habitica for paring down […]

“You gotta have a plan”

As Earl said in Tremors: “You gotta have a plan.” I’ve got a lot of book projects in progress right now, so I thought I’d update everyone on what’s in the pipeline and the status of each project, as well as what my work schedule for the various books is right now. This is my plan, […]

It was a busy summer and I’m moving into an unusually busy fall. So grab hold of something while I run you through the wild ride of everything I’ve been working on — and some interesting personal side projects!

Camp NaNoWriMo and Other News

It’s been a busy week so far. As you may (or may not) have noticed, this website was down for a long time. The issue has been resolved, but it ate up a bit of time…and delayed this post, so what I was going to say here a few days ago I wrote instead on […]

Pre-NaNoWriMo 2014

Because I know I’m not going to write any substantive posts during the creative madness which is NaNoWriMo, I’m trying something different this year. I’ve dusted off a WordPress blog I got a couple of years ago and have turned it into a microblog of miscellany. Generally, it will be a collection of short eclectic […]

Autumn is a Season: Fall is a Verb

It can’t be the weather because we’re not (yet) having fall weather, but autumn is upon us and I am “Fall-ing” in all the usual ways…and also some unusual ways. I’ve got news, news, news! Writing news, blogging news, social network news, music news, and spacey news. (You knew I was spacey, right?) Writing: My usual […]

Post NaNoWriMo post

This will likely be my end-of-the-year post unless something earth-shaking happens in the next couple of weeks. For those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter or Like my Facebook page, I did complete NaNoWriMo in November. It has occurred to me that I still haven’t satisfied my curiosity about how some people write […]

The Group Food Blog has Launched!

We’ve been working behind the scenes to get the group food blog going and though not all the foodies/bloggers have joined the blog, it launched this weekend! I posted an essay on why I’m writing a vegetarian food blog even though I don’t consider myself vegetarian and Nancis posted a yummy soup recipe. I’ve been […]
