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….

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…

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…

A Bit of Tradition

Each year the holidays are filled with nostalgia for me. Much of my family are gone, so when my brother visits, it’s cherished time. Decorating with her handmade Raggedy Ann and several eras of my mums handcrafted egg ornaments adds to the fun traditions. The darkest day has passed and Winter Solstice marks the return of light. Best of…

I Will Never Forget

For those of you outside of the US, this day may be just like any other, but for me September 11th is always momentous. On this day in 2001, I was up extra early and caught the news after the first plane had hit the World Trade Center. I saw…

Getaway

Sometimes a writer just needs a getaway to bring the story back into focus…A few of my photos from last weekend’s WA coast trip – Ruby Beach

Cat’s Got Class

I took an online course today from Cat Rambo on Description and Delivering Information. My favorite tip was: Always choose to describe what’s distinct for that moment in time. That ignites my imagination to see every level of what’s happening in my scene: physical setting, feelings, filters, predicaments, other characters, reactions. I think it will allow me to…

Coming Soon…Can I Sleep First?

Yup, I was down to the wire, but met my Camp NaNoWriMo goal again in July. 3630 more minutes on Book II of The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone. I’m working hard to get it out to you this Fall! …but now it’s Nighty-night time. Zzzzzz
