Saturday Distractions

Day three of no laptop/computer and so far, I’m still… sane. Well, maybe I was a bit cranky last night but it helps to have an iPad and a few wireless keyboards to make sure you still hit that word count each day. Right now, I should be writing but it’s a steamy sex sceneContinue reading “Saturday Distractions”

Musings Over Coffee: When You’re Without Your Computer But You Need to Put Down the Words…

So my 2011 MacBook Pro fizzled the other night and it’s at the computer repair shop where they tell me it will probably be about five to seven days BEFORE they can even look at it since they’re backlogged. I could have taken it somewhere else but these same guys upgraded the hard drive toContinue reading “Musings Over Coffee: When You’re Without Your Computer But You Need to Put Down the Words…”

Average… (is) invisible

The next time you catch yourself being average when you feel like quitting, realize that you have only two good choices: Quit or be exceptional. Average is for losers. Am I being too harsh? Isn’t your time and your effort and your career and your reputation too valuable to squander on just being average? AverageContinue reading “Average… (is) invisible”

Musings Over Coffee: Writing to Your Strengths

Years ago, I did the Personality Type test that said I was ENFP, a Campaigner. I posted the assessment results on my blog and then moved on, mainly because while it was cool to be someone who was “a true free spirit,” or “the life of the party,” I had no idea how it applied toContinue reading “Musings Over Coffee: Writing to Your Strengths”

Musings Over Coffee: Characters & Relationships We Need to Write About More

Saw this on Facebook but can’t find the source (but if you find it, please let me know) and so far, I’ve written at least eight of these characters although some of their stories have yet to be published. Right now, I’m writing about a long-term couple who haven’t tied the knot yet. Like, twelveContinue reading “Musings Over Coffee: Characters & Relationships We Need to Write About More”

Ashe and Riley Get New Covers (for the last time)

I really should have been writing but while describing to a cover designer what I wanted on the new covers for Loving Ashe and Loving Riley and then hearing that this wasn’t possible or that wouldn’t come out as good as I’d imagined it, I realized I totally suck when it comes to describing whatContinue reading “Ashe and Riley Get New Covers (for the last time)”

So Just How Steamy is My Stuff?

I’ve been wondering where this post went and thank goodness I found it again. Anyway, if you’ve ever wondered how steamy your stories are, romance author Lyz Kelly made this awesome graphic for what’s hot and what’s not on the Heat Level scale. The LK you see is her stuff and I think mine goesContinue reading “So Just How Steamy is My Stuff?”

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait…

Guess whose preorder just went live??? Yup! Friends with Benefits goes live in four days and I’m actually really excited! It makes for a hectic release schedule considering my last book was released less than 30 days ago but I’m also playing catch up for the year. Friends with Benefits was supposed to be releasedContinue reading “Good Things Come to Those Who Wait…”
