July started off with a bang!

and the noise just keeps coming…. What else is new? Fireworks, thunderstorms, and overall my writing life has been thundering along. I spent the better part of Saturday, July 9th pitching to agents at an online workshop. It was truly a learning experience. Agents are just super nice folks with a job that carries them to all sorts of events and online things. I really felt sorry for the ones with early calls, as it was done via Zoom.

Stay creative and sane during a pandemic in 2020

There are so many ways we can be creative and sane during a pandemic in 2020. How? Let us count the ways… One of the first things I noticed about the stay-at-home lifestyle of the pandemic was – I liked it. I liked being at home. And I also liked not having to go out anywhere.

Nevertheless, November has come and with it much cooler days and nights. I

One such facet of our talents, when honed to a fine point, will give you a significant edge that will result in better book sales.

Mini-con wrapup

Mini-con wrapup

The MINI-CON was a HIT! Good morning, friends! Today is the day after the mini-con that my mastermind group, Desoto Writers Alliance, put on at the library. It was SO MUCH FUN! If you were a part of this event, thank you from the bottom of my heart for attending. It was the first of our efforts to bring together writers, aspiring and otherwise. We had members of some local author groups in the crowd and it was so wonderful to see writer buddies that we don’t get to see (aside from online) very often. Many of you came up
