The Play is the Thing

(or Where I Really Talk About Station Eleven) I know it’s been a while since I’ve updated and it’s been an interesting couple of months. My personal life has been a rollercoaster but I’m managing. I’m also late with my new book and just when I’m about to give up meeting the third rescheduling ofContinue reading “The Play is the Thing”

Getting Over the Block

Yesterday’s release of my first book for 2021 officially marked the end of my writer’s block. It took eighteen months, four versions, countless drafts, and four deadline extensions before I finally found my groove again and wrote the version that was released three months before release day. It’s bittersweet but oh, what relief to knowContinue reading “Getting Over the Block”

Liz’s Latest Update: Earthships and Peacocks

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog and to let you know what I’ve been doing. As of today, I have one more chapter to write on this book that has taken 19 months to finish. Turns out, the other times I said I was almost finished, I wasn’t. The story lineContinue reading “Liz’s Latest Update: Earthships and Peacocks”

A Monday Update and a Short Story

Happy Monday! I hope you are having a beautiful start of the week! A quick update on my current crossover work-in-progress: It’s about to go to beta readers but in a cluster of chapters at a time as I give it another pass and edit/rewrite/tweak. Undaunted is my crossover novella set in Corinne Michaels’ SalvationContinue reading “A Monday Update and a Short Story”

What Day Is It? #QuarantineLife

Just kidding. Of course, I know what day it is. The 327th day of March. Alright, it’s the 30th and so far, LilDude is on his second week of distance schooling. He woke up at 10 A.M. only to tell me he needed to sleep in. Since I was in the middle of doing post-productionContinue reading “What Day Is It? #QuarantineLife”

Musings Over Coffee: #QuarantineLife Week 1 Update

I don’t normally grind my teeth when I’m stressed (or I don’t think I do) but I do know that my shoulders get really stiff when I am. I also start feeling agitated. Imagine high school chemistry when the teacher talks about molecules zinging all over an enclosed space as it’s heated. Well, that’s howContinue reading “Musings Over Coffee: #QuarantineLife Week 1 Update”

A 2020 First! A New Book!

Well, I did it! I released my first book for 2020 and that is HUGE for me. It’s a novella at 25k words but it’s still a HUGE deal for me and so I’m celebrating. How? I’m spending it home because after two weeks of dodging whatever the boys were taking home with them fromContinue reading “A 2020 First! A New Book!”

Musings Over Coffee: Write From the Heart

Cleaning my phone photo album because I’m hitting 2TB on my cloud storage and found my first ever self-made trailer for Everything She Ever Wanted from October 2016. Brought tears to my eyes because I never really wrote it as a category romance story but one woman’s journey from darkness to light, from losing herselfContinue reading “Musings Over Coffee: Write From the Heart”

Take It Easy… or What Happens When You Find a Working Walkman AND an Eagles CD in the Garage

“What about the Eagles?” “Perfect,” Dax says as I press Play and the music plays on the cab stereo speakers. For the next few minutes, I sip my coffee in silence, listening to Glen Frey telling me to take it easy as I take in the landscape in front of me. With Bandolier located southwestContinue reading “Take It Easy… or What Happens When You Find a Working Walkman AND an Eagles CD in the Garage”
