Summer is here: Let’s pick out a book

It’s the first day of summer and you know what that means. DISCLAIMER: READING! It’s the summer reading season. So wanna know my opinion on some things? Well, you are about to get it, so if you don’t want to hear my tirade about books and reading, then please be forewarned. I get emails from Amazon pretty regularly, and oftentimes they tout a book I have recently browsed for or read. They target market me that way. You too? What? You didn’t know you were being marketed to? Well, think about it. How did they know what books to suggest?

The Whiteboard, Part Ten

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! Be sure to check out my interesting tidbit at the end

Imaginarium 2015 wrap-up

Imaginarium 2015 wrap-up

I am baaaaack! Imaginarium 2015 was a total utter win. Linda Rettstatt and I had a blast. We sold books, signed books, chatted with other writers, took pictures, sat on panels–well, in other words took full advantage of the event. It was held in the Crowne Plaza at the Louisville Airport (not IN the airport but in the vicinity of it) We arrived on Thursday evening so we could get all settled in and take a breath before plunging into the con. It is always a great idea to do this–in case you are taking notes. Have a nice dinner,

Writer’s Retreat 2014

The first annual Writers on the Edge (what we ended up calling ourselves) Writer’s Retreat 2014 has come to an end. I know there is an organization called that, so we won’t try to keep using it, but we enjoyed it for this trip. The weather was lovely, and encouraged beach walks which we did pretty much every day. The Harrison Historic House was fantastic. I don’t think any of us had any idea what we were in for when we rented it. After finishing a Christmas collection, and the next episode of The Case of the Missing Body, I

Time to gear up for fall!

Time is moving forward at a rapid rate, don’t you think?? After we returned from vacation (yes, I still have to post images!) the job has consumed me and writing has really been taking the rest of my time. We made a trip to Best Buy recently and I have a new laptop. It was way past time for one. The old one had gotten slow and sluggish. My dear hubby also fixed me up with a big screen so I can work on two screens at a time. OMG. I am so spoiled! I have been working on The
