I’d intended to send a Questions & Answers email to my How to Write a Novel launch list, but that’s going to have to wait.Instead, I did THIS. Closed my “Move out of Florida while writing fiction” fundraiser. Here’s why — it’s this clause in the Patreon Legal Agreement https://www.patreon.com/legal By posting content to Patreon you grant us a… Continue reading Why I shut down my Patreon fundraiser

The New Paranormal Suspense Covers
I finished the following covers for my upcoming novels today: Midnight Rain I See You Last Girl Dancing Night Echoes Because of a bit of a financial bump, I’m pushing hard to get all the backlist up in the next couple of months. To my amazement (because I thought exactly the opposite), I think the… Continue reading The New Paranormal Suspense Covers
A Book Giveaway (sort of)
Lots of my novels for free if you’ll pay the postage.
NIGHT ECHOES is on shelves
This has to be noted as the latest an author has ever remembered to mention the debut of her own book. I found a couple of copies of NIGHT ECHOES on the shelves. Last Friday. [sigh] I plead PTIRSSD (Post-Traumatic Internal Revenue Service Stress Disorder) and new books in the making for forgetting to mention… Continue reading NIGHT ECHOES is on shelves
And the PW Review
Thanks to Mary Germano, I got a copy of the PW review of Night Echoes yesterday. If you went into the Readers or Writers sections of the site, though, you’ll have noticed that I’m very slowly getting site bits into place At the moment, just the top navigation bar, later the new logo and submenus… Continue reading And the PW Review
The Good PW Review
My agent called me yesterday to let me know that NIGHT ECHOES got a good review from Publishers’ Weekly. She’s going to photocopy it and mail it to me: The bookstores in my town do not, for some complex, arcane, and probably diabolical reason, don’t carry Publishers’ Weekly. It might be a plot. In any… Continue reading The Good PW Review
Praise for an unknown copyeditor
Usually manuscript copyedits have the name of the copyeditor on the processing sheet. This time they didn’t, and I wish they had. I’d love to write a thank you note to the person who did Night Echoes. They were, bar none, the least frustrating, clearest, and most straightforward edits I’ve ever done. I’m finished with… Continue reading Praise for an unknown copyeditor
Backgrounding wonderfulness, and back to work
My bud sent me a book on bookbinding some time ago, and I picked up one on handmade books. Things have to float around in my subconscious for a while before I figure out what to do with them, and these books were like that. I don’t know if it was the fever, or just… Continue reading Backgrounding wonderfulness, and back to work
Received the copyedits for NIGHT ECHOES—they’re pretty clean. Shouldn’t take long, but I feel dreadful. The kidlet caught something, and now we’ve caught it. So work is catch-as-catch-can for the next few days.
First Draft of Culture Clinic is done
Have to do the copyedit of NIGHT ECHOES tomorrow. Will proof and publish Culture Clinic when that is done.
