Wounded I & II– Cover Reveal

on March 31, 2015

 So this started out just being a cover reveal for Wounded Volume 1— and then I realized I should probably show you Volume II even though it’s not available for presale yet, just so you see the difference. And, cause double the Bracken is double the frickin’ FUN! *swoons* He’s beautiful, isn’t he? And oh… Read More

So, Squish’s birthday is on Friday, and Easter is on Sunday, and we are rapidly approaching one of those weird periods where I’m living my life instead of blogging it, and no writing gets done. Yeah, it scares me too. Anyway, don’t be afraid when nothing pops up on my feed for a couple of… Read More

Free verse? Show some Whit, man!

Me to Chicken: Do you like my new favorite meme? Chicken: What does it even mean? Me: Who cares! It’s ADORABLE! * * * Mate,  looking through the cupboards this morning: You did a bad bad thing! Me: What? Wha’d I do? Mate: You bought bad things! Me: (looking at the four boxes of Oreos) Well, you… Read More

My Day in Bullets

on March 28, 2015

*  Zoomboy got back from his trip to Yosemite.  Never has one boy talked so much or so fast between the hours of 8 pm and 11 pm.  He hiked to the top of Vernal Falls, saw a bobcat, hid his clothes from bears, and didn’t bathe once.  (Guess what mom made him do first… Read More

RITA ® Award Nominees — really? REALLY?

on March 26, 2015

So, I saw Heidi Cullinan’s tweet this morning. She was full of *FLAIL* because she’d been nominated for a RITA® award in long contemporary fiction for Fever Pitch–the first gay romance writer to get the call. I was happy for her, and so proud for our genre and… Okay. I can admit it. HELL YES… Read More

Wisdom from Squish

on March 25, 2015

Zoomboy is in Yosemite this week, so it’s just Squish and I in the mornings.  She is very good company.  This morning, she has already laid several nuggets at my feet that are of the purest gold! Squish (while getting her hair brushed): I don’t think television really knows what goes on in television. Me:… Read More

Dogs and a temporary new avatar

on March 24, 2015

I’m using it for my Twitter/Facebook avatar– do you like it? If no, don’t worry– I’ll probably be replacing it soon, possibly with my standard headshot, which you can see in the bio section. If yes, I’m sorry– don’t get attached. The thing is, I’m going to be re-vamping my website, my logo, my image,… Read More

I didn’t get a picture…

on March 23, 2015

Which is part of the reason I came unglued when I dropped Zoomboy and Squish off to school this morning. We spent all weekend getting Zoomboy ready for his trip to Yosemite– new long underwear, new wool socks, dad’s old coat, old sleeping bag, old pillow, new alpaca hat made by mom at the last… Read More

A realization about age…

on March 23, 2015

Mate and I went to see Insurgent on Friday night with my friend.  This evening, as he was telling Chicken about it, he said, “Yeah– the theater was depressing.  Three old people and a theater full of teenaged girls with a few dates hoping to get lucky.” Beat. Beat. Then Chicken faced enlightenment.   “Oh–was… Read More

Had a thought…

on March 22, 2015

And you know how dangerous that is. I was watching one of those crime shows about the hacker who can get into any data base on the planet in two seconds while making wisecracks at the same time? I love those shows. I mean, hands down– have fallen completely in love with them. I’m mesmerized…. Read More
