Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. It's been a rough first week of 2021, and all … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: 2021 Resolutions
2020 was horrible, but instead of lingering on the past I'm going to set goals for myself for 2021. Goal number 1 is obviously survival with my mental health mostly intact, or at least better than it was throughout 2020. I usually set fairly lowball goals for myself, but the first half of 2020 is … Continue reading My 2021 Reading and Writing Goals
Folks, I am so excited about today! That Distant Dream releases from NineStar Press, and it's just—there are no words. This book has been in the works for ten years (which is why I'm struggling with the sequel), and after years of writer's block, writing, revisions and anxiety, it's seeing people for the second time! … Continue reading Today is My Book’s Debut!
Still recovering from my in-law invasion (love them, but they are best served in small doses) so I haven't written much and my back-log of book reviews is once again reaching towering heights (*whispers* November 9 flame rant, I will get to you). BUT today is National Coming Out Day, and I am finishing editing … Continue reading It’s National Coming Out Day!

While this is set in the world of Arsibelle, I drew a lot of inspiration from the real pack-horse … Continue reading ARCs Available! An LGBTQIA+ Fantasy Novella
This is not going to be a frequent weekly post, since I'm not a frequent writer! But in 2020 I want to do better, and I want to keep track of what I'm writing a bit more and actually finish projects. Plus, I have to write a sequel for a book releasing sometime in June-July...and … Continue reading Writerly Wednesday: A Bit About Me
Whew, 2019 was a year. I started off 2019 with my wife deployed, at a kinda boring job I wasn't super fond of but sticking it out, and about to publish my first novella (and my first paid piece of writing). I didn't have a blog. I was prepared to grit my teeth and get … Continue reading My Reading & Writing Goals for 2020
This week has brought some incredible writing highs...after several months of lows and rejections. In March 2019, I published The Book Woman through Less Than Three Press. It did not sell very well, and then LT3 closed its doors in July. This was after nearly a year of rejections for one of my short stories, … Continue reading Writing Highs…and Lows
