Mostly, we all have a calling. Something deep within or sometimes beckoning is from afar to do something that will make us complete. For anyone reading this, I hope you're already there doing it or in the process of reaching it. For me, I'm still on my way. I got a late start in life … Continue reading It’s Been Awhile…
It's National Novel Writer's Month! Time to put thoughts down and hammer out the majority or entirety of a novel, right? Well, I am doing just that. I am at the halfway mark in the last book of my trilogy and I have a short story due and what better month to tackle this adventure … Continue reading How I Started NaNoWriMo in the Negative
So, it's been months since I posted. I'd like to say I was backpacking or researching or been hammering out novels one after another. No, I've just been living life and getting caught up with it at every turn. And who wakes up and stretches their arms out all refreshed?! I'm more like this kid: … Continue reading Back From Hibernation
Well, I must say, 2015 was quite a year. Released a book in the first month, coached softball (a lot), participated in my first signing event, went to my first book fair... THEN, I became totally immersed in trying to figure out what I need to do. I'm sure each and every author taking the … Continue reading Re-Animation
I've had exactly two moments of interacting with book-goers while being an author. One was at my own signing at a local coffee house. The other was at the South Dakota Book Festival a couple of weeks ago. When I thought of it, initially, I was more than a little nervous. As far as extroverted … Continue reading Fair Enough… (pun intended)
Over the summer, I have been attempting to find my way (author-wise) and in the midst of doing so I realized something. I can be better. Falling back on the notion of "why does nobody like my book?" first has me over-analyzing my abilities. And anyone who knows me is fully aware of my pension … Continue reading What Am I Doing?
In the spirit of getting out there to more people and my deep love of nerdly things, come check out the new series I'm embarking on with my nerdly sister from another Mr. (and Mrs. too, we're not related) Liz Tailor. We'll be live and talking shop weekly on all kinds of topics from Star … Continue reading Cross Country Nerds
In the oncoming vacation train heading right for me, I keep thinking of posts to write and plan and etc... For myself, and I think a lot of bloggers, there comes a moment when I think I have absolutely nothing else to say or offer to the viewing masses. Then, one thing I was discussing … Continue reading Catch Your Breath
Good morning! Now, for those of you that aren't aware, I'm straying out into the YouTube world one toe at a time. I've only done author interviews up to this point, but I plan on putting out some additional content on a (hopeful) weekly basis. Go to the YouTube link below to learn more! On … Continue reading Putting it Out There
We live in a virtual world. Most of the people I've made friends with over the past year has been online. And since the majority of those are writers... I'm thinking road trip! So, I was chatting with my good friend, Shannon A Thompson, this past week. Whatever led our convo to talk about conferences … Continue reading Who’s With Me??
