Today is the big day, and I hope you’ll celebrate with me! You can get your copy of THE LOST TRAIN today! My new story is published along with 6 great other stories and 10 fabulous works of art. I’ve been working hard over the last few months, but enjoying every minute of it. I…

Chantiki’s Boudoir – Esteemed Guest

New Release! I’m honored to have my personal favorite short story, “The Fickle Face of Time” featured in Victoria Bastedo’s Vintage Ladies Magazine, Chantiki’s Boudoir. It’s a tale of vexing vixens, beguiling beauties and the gentleman caught in their spell.  (Who just might be one of our Mr. Worthingtons!) Originally written from the photo prompts…

A Fourth of July Celebration!

Happy Independence Day to those in the U-S-of-A! And big cheers and fireworks-worthy celebration here at Miss Liv Adventures on the same day too!!! At long last, The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone – Book III: Dreams Key rode off with great fanfare to the hands of Beta Readers. It’s complete and ready…

A Glowing Opportunity

Mt. Si glowed gorgeously out my window all day today, matching my mood. I’ve been a bit down about the delays on Book III’s final edit. Though I’m determined and marching forward to complete and publish it as soon as it’s brilliant – or at least up to Miss Livingstone’s particular standards. But today I…

Time and Time Again

It’s possible that it’s completely appropriate to be writing Book III of Miss Liv Adventures time travel series yet again. 🙂  Still aiming to publish by the end of the year. Wish me luck and safe NaNo travels!

Excelerate

Yes, I know…before you correct my spelling, I had a reason for messing up the word accelerate. I’m pleased to announce I’ve finished the Excel spreadsheet from hell, otherwise known as Timeline Points by Character, and I’m ready to move forward speedily with completing Book III (and IV & V) at long last. I’m still…

A Fun and Successful Summer Camp

I’m a big participator in NaNoWriMo events. Even as a more seasoned writer I find the challenges and group support a great motivator to keep moving ahead. This July I completed my 60 hour editing goal on Book III of Miss LiV Adventures. Still working hard to perfect that twisty time travel plot and make…

I’ve Got my Towel…Time to Travel!

  I can’t wait to arrive at Norwescon! Come on down to Seatac DoubleTree and join the fun! I’ve got my new steampunk trope Octopus towel at the ready for this year’s theme, and a table lined up to share with my esteemed colleagues Rachel Barnard, Sheri J Kennedy and Victoria Bastedo on Writer’s Row….

Ninny Rhino Achieved! Camp NaNo Challenge Accepted!

In the month of March I took up D. Wallace Peach’s Ninny Rhino challenge – mostly because I wanted the awesome Rhino Badge, but also because I needed to get back on track with disciplined writing sessions and immerse myself in Miss Livingstone’s twisty time travel plot until I solved the remaining plot knots. It…

Tangled Knots are Fabulous Plots

…AT LAST! I would hate to admit how many hours it’s taken to untangle the web woven my Miss Livingstone’s books I & II. So many lovely mysteries were threaded and I was determined to bring them to a most incredible and rewarding tapestry at the end. I believe I’ve done it. I’ve plotted and…

On the Road Again

I promise I’m working hard on completing Book III for release, but it’s been great to be out the last 3 weekends meeting readers and finding new inspiration at book booths with NiWA and my friends at Clockwork Dragon. Here’s a photo from the So NW Women’s Show in Tacoma. Next stop, Norwescon at the…
