  • 2000+ on Cady Today

    Fast words, happy writing, interesting twist in the story as she agrees to go looking for a fiance who went missing in curious territory. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Reviewer Copies

    Incidentally, I should have remembered to mention this earlier, but reviewer copies of the books in the shop are available to qualified reviewers. Who is a qualified reviewer? If you have or write for a well-trafficked site, you’ve published reviews of other books, and you publish your reviews under your own name, I’ll consider yours…

  • Book Giveaway at Demented Michelle

    Incidentally, Michelle is giving away a free copy of Create a Character Clinic, and today is the last day to enter. Her’s is one of the weblogs I wholeheartedly recommend, and this is, I think, a generous gift to her readers. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Best Reason to Upgrade to Tiger 10.4?

    It comes with PhotoBooth. I’m embarrassed to admit this, (but not so embarrassed that it would prevent me from showing you the pictures I took). Nothing like a new OS, though, to induce procrastination. So … on to work now. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Onward, Brightly

    Heard from Robin yesterday that she liked the proposal, and had sent it straight on to Claire. This never happens, so I’m hoping the fact that it did this time is a sign (no, make that SIGN) of good things to come. I’m still doing the HTCB manuscript slog. I’m reacquainting myself with the world…

  • And Another One Bites the Dust

    The proposal for a possible next suspense novel went out to my agent about ten seconds ago. Took longer than I thought possible to finish the revision, but on the up side, I like it a lot, and I’d love to write the book. It deals with a different level of relationships than the previous…

  • Announcing MUSE

    I’m delighted to announce the arrival of Muse, by Lazette Gifford, now on sale. In a town full of lunatics, murder is just around the corner … Stranded when his car breaks down, Killian Dain Fox overhears a cop and a gas station clerk discussing murder and the exchange of money. Although he tries to…

  • Want to Recommend a HollyShop Book?

    I’ve added a Recommendations section to the shop, where readers/customers can recommend books by authors or anything about the shop itself. Published recommendations will appear at random in the box, and will show the writer’s name (required), plus a link and a company name if you want to add them. An e-mail address is required,…

  • Required Reading for Writers

    It’s short, it’s funny, it’s smart. And it relates directly to the previous sentence. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Sorry About That

    It’s been a while. I apologize for the unplanned absence. One sinus headache extended into about two weeks of them as our weather went from below freezing to mid-80s and back, with days of rain alternating throughout; during that entire time, I was managing about one to two hours of work on the days when…
