Kindle Countdown – Yew to a Kill

Last month, I had a Kindle Countdown promo for Disk of Death, the first book in the Shannon Wallace series. Did you get it? It is the lead in to the series, and so fast and funny, you are missing out if you don’t get it! That particular promo did way better than I thought it would – and I actually will receive a royalty this month. Woo hoo! Thank you to my new readers, fans and followers. If you haven’t subscribed to the Zanies, do that. I am going to be shooting out a summer newsletter soon! So, this

The Whiteboard part four

The Whiteboard part four

Welcome to the latest (fourth) installment of The Whiteboard. This story has been keeping me company for weeks now. I am sort of liking the fact that I can just write about 500 words on it (equivalent of 2  pages or so) and let that be the writing for the day. A writer writes. So, I am. I hope you are enjoying this little tale. (I actually do have an ending!) Here are the three previous links to parts one, two, and three. Part one Part two Part three The Whiteboard by Kim Smith ©2017 She was disappointed in Beatrice’s reply.

If a boatload of green didn’t arrive on the horizon

What I Know: Post Con Wrapup

What I Know: Post Con Wrapup

Post-Con – what I know I am back from the con, and I survived! Ha-ha–there should be a tee shirt that says “I survived ________ con.” It is a really exhausting experience for those of us who are not used to being “peopled” all day.  You feel mentally drained. I also felt physically drained after spending 14 hours in the car going and coming. Thank God for my pal, Linda Rettstatt. She is an excellent driver, and we had a great time talking about writing and books on the trip. My post-con advice would be to be sure to drink
