November News

Well, I’ve finally done it. My brand-spanking new website is complete. It’s been a long time coming but I couldn’t be happier about having both author personas and all my books in the same place. It’s like gathering all my children back together again under—and just in time for the holidays.

And speaking of holidays, it’s been a busy month at my house. I completed revisions for Secrets of Nanreath Hall and sent them back to my editor who I hope is even now raving over my mastery of the English language. We’re anticipating an August 2016 release for my debut historical fiction novel (Amazon already has it up as a pre-order) though no cover yet. I’ve seen quite a few great options, but we haven’t hit on that one perfect image. I promise to post it here as soon as we do.

In the meantime, I’m banging away on the first draft of its as yet untitled follow-up. It’s not due until next summer which makes me feel like I have oodles of time, but I know how deadlines can creep up on you when you’re not looking so I’m trying to stay nose to the grindstone until it’s finished. Right now, I’m deep in the weeds which is always a tough place to be. It’s the phase where I can’t possibly see a way to the end and all seems at its darkest. (my own personal black moment). Then the a-ha moment hits and I’m off to the races. At least, that’s how it’s supposed to work. We’ll see.

If you’re looking to comment on anything I post here, ask a question, or just shoot the breeze, you can check me out on Facebook or Twitter. I hang out at both places under both author names so there are lots of places (and ways) to chat with me.

I hope to check in often, but if I don’t get the chance before the chaos of the holidays hit, I want to wish everyone a bright December with family and friends.
