A Final Farewell

Yesterday, an organization I’ve been involved with for five years closed it doors along with the publishing company that branched out from it – both the Fantasy and Science Fiction Network and Azure Fire Publishing. It has been an adventure and great learning experience working with the authors of the two groups and will forever be remembered. You can see the farewell notice on … Read More A Final Farewell

Expect the Unexpected

Over the last twenty years, I’ve battled with “female” issues and finally on the 29th of October I was able to start the final process of resolving those issues. While a hysterectomy for me was considered elective… I truly feel it was my only opinion. I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life on medication if a procedure could take care of … Read More Expect the Unexpected

Writing goals

Last year, not much was written in way of my books so this year… I aimed for change. I had last published in January 2017 until just recently and that was a huge gap. I had an unfinished series, many unfinished works, and just no drive to get any of it done. I dealt with a lot of stress and distractions! Early on in … Read More Writing goals

To read or not to read

Okay, that may be a little corny, but its a question many authors think about. Do readers still read print copies or are they going to eprint more? Who reads (ages, demographics, etc…)?  As an author, I try to stay somewhat informed of the trends of readers. Do teens read as much as they when I was in school? Do adults read books anymore? … Read More To read or not to read

Endorsement Anger?

So Nike does an ad with Kaepernick and the country seems to have gone insane. People are burning their Nike products (cause what is more sensible than burning things you spent damn good money on, right) … Well, now this Louisiana mayor has decided to ban Nike products from the city recreation facilities. He put out a memo stating, “Under no circumstances will any … Read More Endorsement Anger?

Busy Bee Over Here

The last month things have been so busy I haven’t posted a thing, for that I apologize. My goal is to get caught up and get my posts going again. Here’s what’s been happening… I finished one book – edits, cover, formatting… I’m just waiting for the proof copy to arrive before I can go any further. I have also finished the first draft … Read More Busy Bee Over Here

Literary Love

This past weekend was the Literary Love Savannah book event in Savannah, GA. This was my first book convention and for three days I was non-stop going and it was a blast. We got into Savannah on Wednesday evening with the activities starting first thing Thursday morning. First, hubs and I took advantage of some free time and walked River Street and getting some … Read More Literary Love

Respect and Responsibility

I’ve rewritten this post a few times now… hard to decide where to start, so I’m going to try this one more time. Every one is different. We each look different, think different, like different things. This is okay. What I find disturbing is that every day I find people disrespecting one another based on our differences, whether that is skin color, religion, political … Read More Respect and Responsibility

Home Sweet… Georgia

I’ve been blessed to be able to go back to Georgia this last week for vacation and it was perfect, even with the numerous storms – which were random and fierce all at once. I flew into Savannah where my hubs picked me up and we had a great dinner at Ruby Tuesdays. Made some calls to let a few people know I was … Read More Home Sweet… Georgia

Turning 46

I’ve not been big on celebrating my birthday in quite some time, so this year was no different. My husband is on the road for work and the house has been quieter, not that he necessarily is noisy 😉 Anyhow, as time creeps up on us as it does me I had a lot of things on my mind this birthday (June 11). I … Read More Turning 46

When are we done?

A while back I heard a conversation where one parent told another they didn’t need to give their child advice anymore because that child was now an adult. I thought about this for quite sometime and mulled it over and over in my head. Here are my thoughts: The only time we are done doing anything for our children is (1) they no longer … Read More When are we done?

BABIT (Houston, TX)

On Wednesday, a fellow author reached out to be about attending the Books are Bigger in Texas Author Event being held in Houston, Texas asking if I wanted to attend. What girl could refuse a well known event, especially when she had no other plans for the weekend?! So I went. The event was held in the 1940 Air Terminal Museum and was very … Read More BABIT (Houston, TX)
