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….

As Fast as I Can

For those of you who are anxiously awaiting the release of Miss Livingstone’s Book II…Here’s my NaNoWriMo site Goal Tracker from March 18th. I actually met my goal on the 16th, and today I’m up to 160.5 before my work sessions. It’s showing only my work on editing the manuscript since January 1st. Considering I have another full time…

The Fickle Face of Time

Ironically, I got so caught up in writing this story in response to the Story Board Challenge on FB page, Steampunk Writers Library that I literally lost track of time and left my husband waiting at the bus stop for a ride! So unlike me to do such a thing…He’s forgiven me — for the most part….

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…

Book II’s Train is Coming

The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone, Book II: Memory Key is coming down the tracks and will be released soon. ‘Soon’ instead of a firm date has been a bit frustrating, to be honest, but I’m not going to send the story to publication until it lives up to Book I’s Miss Livingstone’s…

River Walk – Flagging Flotsam

Originally posted on sheri j kennedy ~ Riverside:
When I cleared the trees and arrived at the river, I had a moment of disappointment. The light was nearly gone from the place and the waters were blue and cold without highlights of the sun. But the rushing water sounded magnificent, still high after recent heavy rains,…

Another Piece of History Fading

Over the years many of my favorite businesses have come and gone, but The Two Bells was special. It was ‘my place’ to stop by and have a cheap but very tasty appie and brew while cycling by on my way home from work – bike clothes just fine. Back in the day I owned a…
