Images from the Launch Party!

I had SO much fun at the Miss LiV Book II: Memory Key Launch Party! Thanks to everyone who came and who sent good wishes and encouraging congratulations. It really felt like a celebration. I was pleased to have several other authors read (I didn’t catch photos of them all) and enjoyed the two readings…

Miss Livingstone’s Fine Tea

Miss Livingstone’s fine tea can finally be yours! I procured some Mariage Freres tea for the Book II: Memory Key Launch Party on June 28th. I found only one place in Seattle where this excellent French tea, that our Miss Livingstone is always sipping, is sold. I made a special pilgrimage to Watson Kennedy to get some to share with…

Final Pages of the Final Edit

I always get a good laugh at the Final, Very Final, Very Very Final edit files of authors. I know the feeling. But over the years I’ve developed a method, and I can tell you, I’m on the Final edit of the ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of Book II: Memory Key. That means I’m less…

Woot! Book II ARC done & I won Camp NaNo

It’s such a relief and utter thrill to be done with Book II’s ARC of Miss LiV Adventures! (advance reader copy). Just a few more touch-ups for the release in May!!! All those editing hours also made me win Camp NaNo early – for the first time ever. 🙂 Can’t wait for my upcoming events….

A Wee Bit of Fame

I don’t live near a bookstore, so I get to browse one much too seldom. To my delight, when I was in Issaquah (about 20 miles away) this weekend, I found Miss Livingstone, Book I at the ‘local’ Barnes & Noble! Besides the excitement of seeing my book on the shelf, I was thrilled they…
