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 Ten

Hey everyone! It’s part ten!  Here is another installment on the continuing saga of Anne and her whiteboard. I am coming to the end of the story now, and I hope you haven’t figured out who the “writer” is. If so, don’t tell anyone! It’s been fun writing this weird tale. It’s also been a means to my getting some writing in each week. As my time gets squashed again with personal life stuff, I may not have time to do this for a while.  Thanks for reading along!

Self-edit: Quick tips for everything

Self-editing is hard. But finding out you need to self-edit is not hard at all. Take my last post for instance…I just reread it this morning and found all manner of issues with it, which makes me mad at myself, but there it is. Honestly in all its glory. But the point of this post is to say, we SHOULD self-edit. We should not subject our readers to anything less than perfect. Published posts, published books, stories, etc. SHOULD be self-edited (and of course, professionally edited when appropriate), not in its raw form. I apologize. Writing is self-editing. My Teaser

Pet post: Darby, turns one years old

I got the idea to blog about a pet from a blog who was giving out ideas on what to blog about – well, why I couldn’t figure this one out on my own, beats me. My pet is a huge part of my life, writing-wise and otherwise. She recently turned one years old. We didn’t have cake. She is my foot-warmer in the winter, and my bed buddy all year around. She is not judgemental about what I write, if it is in need of edits, or even if it is the best writing I have ever done. She
