Swag Swag Swag Swag…

on August 31, 2012

Oh BLARGH! Seriously– GRL is approaching, and someone informed me that it was my job to purchase… whatyacallit? Oh yeah.  SWAG. Anyway–yeah.  First of all, expensive.  I get it, it’s a tax deduction, and a necessary promotional business expense, but I spend the money and I’m thinking, “My GOD we need a new bathroom floor.”… Read More

Post Soccer/Editing Hangover

on August 28, 2012

Opening day for soccer– you all remember that? Oi!  Me too! This year I didn’t get to see Zoomboy play, because all of his games were concurrent with Squish’s.  I Did get to see Squish play, however, and that was a revelation. See, one of my children’s great qualities on any sports field is their… Read More

Everything I Know About Writing, I Learned From Bruce Springsteen

on August 25, 2012

I was going to be a part of a blog hop today– What Writing LGBTQ literature means to me–but, like so many things when I’m in the writing/editing rabbit hole, I space-monkeyed right out of that obligation. It wasn’t something I could focus on at the moment anyway, but I have been thinking a lot… Read More

Hey! You in there! Stop that!

on August 21, 2012

Okay, so I’m going to do some editing of Dex and Kane.  Oh yes I am.  I love them– you’ve heard me yammer on about them for MONTHS!   But wait!  Taern and Dorjan, my two steampunk guys– they’re great. They’re sort of calling to me–I mean, they’re on a deadline too!  And OH!  They’re… Read More

One More Mile…

on August 16, 2012

Okay… random post here.  I’m sort of running on fumes here–hence the title.  (And btw?  If you haven’t heard this song?  I’m sharing it with you now.  It’s beautiful, and I love it–in fact, I used it in Making Promises during Ylena’s last chapter, and it made me cry. But wait!  There’s more! *  I’m… Read More

Saturday Snark: Sidecar

on August 11, 2012

It’s Saturday, which means it’s time for Saturday Snark over at Marie Sexton’s Blog!  I’m going with Sidecar this week, because I’m proud of it, and because Joe and Casey snarked really really well.  This is in the early stages of their relationship, when Casey really is just too damned young, and Joe is firmly entrenched in his… Read More

Cover Squee!!!

on August 9, 2012

Cover Squee!!!!  This first one is for Mourning Heaven (which should be on the Coming Soon page very soon, so you’ll see this cover again!) This story is the one inspired by Bruce Springsteen’s Magic CD, and I can’t look at the cover without hearing “Gypsy Biker”, “Magic”, “The Last to Die”, and “Devil’s Arcade”–all… Read More

Workin’ in the Word Mines…

on August 7, 2012

Goin’ down down down… Chicken’s second recital was her first fashion disaster.  She was supposed to wear a coal mining cap, and the damned thing didn’t have the foam in it to keep it on her precious little noggin.  While all the other kids were moving their tap shoes and using their little fake pick-axe… Read More

Saturday Snark Returns

on August 4, 2012

Hiya!  It’s Saturday Snark Day at Marie Sexton’s blog again!  I particularly like this exercise– it’s a challenge to find the moments in your work that made you choke on your own coffee (or soda!) and try not to spray it over your computer screen.  Humble?  No.  But fun to go back and read what made other… Read More
