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…

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….

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…

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,…

Book III – I Can See the Light

Quite often finishing the draft of a book feels like coming out of a tunnel for me. The spectacular sunset on the mountain out my window yesterday evening came through my former story fog with crisp clarity. I haven’t fully seen the beauty outside of Miss Livingstone’s world for over a month.  I write my drafts…

Woot! Beta Delivered- Miss Livingstone

Time to celebrate! At long last the Beta version of The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone, Book II: Memory Key has been sent out to readers. While it’s out, I’ll do my own read-through of the manuscript, trying to see the arc of the storyline as a reader instead of a writer. The story…

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…
