Yes, they are, and as much as I have enjoyed them, I'm glad of it. I had wonderful visits with my children and my friends, but now it's time to get back to business. I'm waiting for the funds to get my first book edited, and in the meantime I'm getting back to my second book.
My good friend, Brian Porter, wrote me about the movie deal he has made on A Study In Red, and I'm so very proud for him. He is a great writer and deserves the best. He's a great inspiration for all of us.… Continue

There is no one way to write a book, market a book, or anything else in life. (Please excuse the early morning philosophy.)
Since I wrote my last post, way last summer, I have marketed my book, which will be out in the next month, here, there and everywhere. I have used word of mouth, guest blogging, Facebook and MySpace. I have told all my friends and relatives. I have sent emails to people I don't know and received positive response and great opportunities for promotion. I have done all… Continue

I've been an avid collector of antiques for a number of years, and one of the things you learn when you collect antiques is that one man's rubbish is another man's treasure. I'd never, however, taken this entirely literally until the first time I saw Mr N, my delightful neighbour, up to his elbows in the garbage bags that my husband had taken out to be picked up by the refuse collectors the following morning. With bare hands, and with shirt sleeves rolled up past his elbows, he sifted through… Continue

Well, it’s nomination season and the gods have been good to me again–so good that I’m still reeling.
You remember last year when The Reckoning of Asphodel
was a Top Ten finalist in the Preditors and Editors Annual Readers’ Poll as Best Sci Fi/Fantasy Novel of 2007? This year has surpassed last year and I am literally gobsmacked.
The Gift of Redemption
has been nominated by P&E for Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Novel of 2008.

The afternoon was sultry; a hot wind was chasing a yacht across the golden waves of the sunset bay. A furtive figure, dressed in black despite the heat, slipped from the shadows cast by the stairwell. Large well manicured hands fumbled with a lock-pick at the door to apartment number 9. There came a loud click and the figure felt his breath catch as the door swung open silently.
Replacing the lock-pick he drew out a .357 Magnum revolver. Quietly, he manoeuvred through the apartment.… Continue

Resolute: Characterized by firmness or determination; pursuing a fixed purpose; unwavering. Synonym: Faithful
Reign: To rule, have dominion, authority. The exercise of sovereign power.
In other words resolute to reign means that I am determined, I have a fixed purpose, I am unwavering and faithful to exercise the power, authority and dominion that God has given me as a believer!
This time of the year, (Christmas and New Year’s) a lot of us make resolutions for… Continue

The average print-on-demand book sells 75 copies, according to Penny Sansevieri, CEO of A Marketing Expert (www.amarketingexpert.com).
Print-on-Demand is a manufacturing process. There are circumstances when Print-on-Demand makes sense as a publishing strategy—at the beginning or end of a book's life cycle or as a bridge between print runs when a book's demand exceeds expectations. For most, however, selling 75, or fewer, copies of a book is unacceptable because most authors want… Continue

Olympia, Washington: Hundreds of thousands of people across the country have the PH factor, do you? This PH stands for Parrot Head. The man of Margaritaville fame, Jimmy Buffett fans are called Parrot Heads. The PH factor can be described as a way of enjoying life – working hard and relaxing slow, watching the sunset over Key West, Florida with the smell of salt water no matter where you live.

I extend my hand as you turned away
tossing the last few pieces of my possessions
I quickly fell to my knees grabbing hold of each
piece stuffing them into the green duffel bag
that once belonged to a man most claimed was
Still I am lost, but one day I hope to find him
I am broken as I journey the streets unknown
You used the power to turn my life, my world
upside down, and today you’ve won

Back when I first got married, we lived on the south side of Chicago for a short while.
It was Easter Sunday “our first” and Zion Lutheran Church was three blocks away, so we decided to walk.
I had on my Sunday best. A beautiful knee length cream colored dress, with shear long sleeves that slightly belled at the wrist. It was tapered at the waist with a silk tie, and although I can’t recall the true fabric the dress itself was made of, it just flowed with the wind and every step… Continue
