Hiking Trip part two-The Hill

So, I left you last time as we went into the woods. It was a major event in my life. My very first hiking trip, and at a middle age where most people are just getting comfy in their recliners with the remote. I decided to heck with living cozy, I want adventure. Well, let me tell you, I found it. Even Darby, my little Chihuahua questioned my sanity (see the image-she is asking me what am I thinking) I told her it would be okay, and we would have a good laugh over this event in days to come.

Hiking Trip: Part one-Into the Woods

Hiking Trip: Part one-Into the Woods

Remember how I said this would be a good thing for me? Well, who wouldn’t want to get away “off the grid” for a few days? It totally was a wonderful experience and a chance to spend quality time with my son and his best friend. They have trail names, Rambo and Bucko. I will be happy to just call them, my fellas. They sure did take good care of me.           No matter how prepared we think we are for such a calling as a wilderness experience, we really can’t be. I thought I was

In the Shadows cover design and blurb creation

In the Shadows cover design and blurb creation

What goes on in this story that makes someone want to read it – and other “shadows” that authors think about as they design cover art and write blurbs. Ever experience a time in your writing life when you stare at the screen absently and mutter to yourself, “What now?”  And this is not some mental block that keeps you from writing. Oh no. It’s more like the inescapable time when you have to consider what will work for your cover art, and what won’t, and you are stricken with a lack of ideas for blurbs. My hubby, who is a
