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

Book I have been reading and you should get

Sometimes an author has to post about the great books they have been reading. I am doing that today. I love, love, love these books and the authors who produced them. They have been on my podcast – which you can go to here in order to get more in depth about the books and the authors – and by way of transparency, they are not paying me in any way, shape, form, or fashion to say these things.

End of the year is looming

End of the year is looming

The end of the year 2014 is looming ahead in only two weeks. Then we will be off on a mad adventure called 2015. I feel like I am on the precipice of a Dr. Who episode. What will transpire as we open the Tardis’ door and peer out onto a new and unfamiliar landscape? Well, I don’t think we will encounter aliens. Not yet. But in 2015 I do hope to bring you some new cool stuff. I have already updated my books read page, because I do not think I will finish another one this year. I have
