That’s what the last few weeks of TDYK work has felt like. It’s my own fault, of course, but that rarely makes such things easier to accept or deal with. Anyway, there are 2 major reasons for the current situation. The first has to do with an eleventh-hour change I made in NGD* which, in… Read more
It’s not a huge thing*, but Running on Empty might see a bit of a delay. Maybe not, but probably. In any case, it should only be a few days or so. Apologies for that. In snag-related news, I’m working through a final scene in TDYK, but every time I try to end the conversation, someone comes up… Read more
I’m very excited to announce the release of my next novel, Running On Empty ,* on July 4th, and what better way to do this than with a cover reveal?

Which brings me to the apology portion of our show. My psychological state… Read more
Tough night with the little one from all the driving yesterday and a family gathering in the afternoon, so 15 minutes counts as unexpectedly productive.
Two pages done in less than an hour today, thanks to some stretches with no changes needed. Now if only I could convince myself that the rest is just as flawless. Ha. Ha. Ha.
An unexpectedly productive morning saw almost 3 pages of revision done! This puts me about a third of the way through and feeling quite good about the story overall, which is always nice. Of course, the manuscript still looks like my 17-month old daughter went at it with a pencil gripped in her little fist… Read more
