A little bit of summer…

on June 30, 2011

Okay, it is true. I’ve set myself an impossible deadline, I’ve got a HUGE release (and not the dirty, euphemistic kind either) on July 4th, and I’m stressing big time. Which means that the time I spend at the pool is more important than ever, because it is time when the kids have my immediate… Read More

The Birth of KPR

on June 27, 2011

Okay– I’m sorry I left the book cover post up for so long, but, well, a sort of amazing number of people were hitting on hit from Goodreads. It was sort of frickin’ amazing. I lost my head for a minute–my apologies. Anyway, first, let us do a family update. Zoomboy is climbing the walls,… Read More

We Haz Cover Art!

on June 24, 2011

Yup. Living Promises will be out on July 4th– and I’m SO relieved to have my cover art! I’m showing the sketch and the finished work, because the mud puddle is pretty amazing, and, well, because Collin’s hair became more Collin-like in the second one. I like it. I’ll post the blurb in a minute,… Read More

Knitter’s Lullaby

on June 22, 2011

OKay– First thing you’ve got to do is click that video above, because it’s got, like, the theme music I hear whenever I look at this finished project. There. Mood set? There you go. This is chunky alpaca, which means that, yes, I’m ready to wear a cloak to the ice age. Or, well, at… Read More

Blogger, you fucker.

on June 19, 2011

Okay– not to be harsh, but I’d just written a lovely post about my kids’ recital and all sorts of funny things–it was hard to do, because I’m exhausted and the kids are exhausted, but I think I managed to pull off lots of things to make you all laugh at… I pushed post, and… Read More

Recital Time Again

on June 19, 2011

Okay, yesterday was my 22nd wedding anniversary– but that’s not what I remember about this time of year. Nope. For the last 14 years, it’s been recital time. I don’t know why I’m so tired–in fact, I feel guilty about being this trashed. My kids were in the performances, or, Chicken’s case, working backstage too,… Read More

Zombie bird!

on June 16, 2011

I officially caved to laziness today– I couldn’t help it. I took the little kids to the pool yesterday to play after water aerobics, and after two hours, I was WIPED. OUT. Between the allergies/summer cold I’ve got going and the two hours in the sun, about the only thing I was good for when… Read More

Reaching: The Third Book of the Green’s Hill Werewolves was released on Saturday– I shit you not! Now this book was a stepping-stone book, between the eventful Waiting and the as of yet unreleased Changing. I… Read More

A few pictures–no time for words.

on June 7, 2011

Okay-to recap: My last day in Florida featured breakfast at a drag show (I shit you not) which I didn’t get pictures of because I’m a weenie, and this: It was beautiful and peaceful, and the site of the best kidnapping ever. We had a lovely time–and I never in a thousand years expected to… Read More
