Just Getting Started

As we head into this century’s version of the Roaring 20s, my mind and calendar are filled with goals for the coming year. Vitae will be out within a few months, Duality has exceeded my expectations with five-star reviews as well as putting me on the map as an award-winning author, and future prospects look unbelievably amazing. Even once Vitae has been published, work doesn’t stop there. Behind-the-scenes work is continuing on a line of…

What’s In “Store” for 2020?

It’s been a busy time for me as of late. In addition to hours increasing for peak season at my day job, I’ve also been hard at work with promos for Vitae and with solidifying some of the groundwork for the novel I plan to publish by the end of 2020. Speaking of Vitae…I am twenty days past when I initially hoped to have it published, and we are now looking into early 2020 before…

Patchwork Wordsmith II

Last September, I wrote about what it means for me to be a patchwork wordsmith. As I continue my journey as a writer, and as Vitae draws nearer to being ready for publication, I am realizing what a tremendous blessing being a patchwork writer can be. I have a trove of work on my hard drive that is nearly-finished, not-nearly-finished, never-will-be-finished, and just about everything else under the sun. That isn’t to say by any…

Distribution – Pick Your Poison

I realize that this post is a tad overdue. While it wasn’t intentional, let’s just say that I’ve been more than a little busy as of late. Hmm – could have something to do with Duality being named a 2019 IAN Book of the Year Awards Finalist Ahem, anyway…I guess that makes this particular post more timely than ever because I wanted to talk about distribution and some of the methods I have considered as…

There’s More Where That Came From

Friday, November 8, 2019. That is the date the current edition of DUALITY will be removed from Amazon in both Kindle and paperback formats to make way for the updated second edition to be released on Sunday, November 10, 2019. The second edition will have a number of cosmetic/formatting changes on the outside and inside of the book; and, though I am hoping that VITAE will also be released on the same day, I am…

Presenting…

Though there might be a few tweaks between now and the release date, here is the front cover for VITAE!

Great Storms That Begin Small

I have spent the last month or so doing my best to get my life right. I don’t mean that on any dramatic, over-the-top, monumental scale. I only mean in terms of writing, working on my “brand,” and finalizing plans for future projects. It is a lot. That is definitely not an over-exaggeration; I actually do have a lot on my plate. And, it’s fantastic! That is not a complaint at all. I am absolutely…

The Curse of the Family Business, Part Two

My previous job-related post ended after I revealed that my boss wanted to “gift” me with the return of a shift she took, but not the same one I had before.  Instead, she wanted to give me the shift she dangled before me a few months earlier.  I turned her down because the entire scenario seemed sketchy to me – at best.  I wondered if there’d be any further backlash, and stepped up my efforts to…

The Return of Taste This! #food #cooking

It’s been quite a while since the last installment of Taste This! That’s not to imply that I haven’t been cooking; just that I haven’t been as diligent with regard to taking the step-by-step photographs that usually encompass a Taste This! feature. Today’s recipe is the most versatile that I’ve presented so far. It’s by no means fancy or complicated. It can be eaten alone as-is, as a side dish, or used as a base…
