Real life

May 16, 2018 | Real life

The only section on this website, currently intact is free reads.

Last fall I removed my titles from both Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Thank you for your support and encouragement, without the many kindnesses from readers, other writers, and gifted editors I would never have published a single story.

XOXO

Spring and other distractions

May 4, 2017 | Real life

May arrived in Seattle with a heady dose of sunshine and the garden responded by unfurling hundreds of tender shoots and swelling blossoms.

Meanwhile I’m deep in renovations for this old house and browsing for new digs.

Stories waiting for attention flitter across my distracted mind, but haven’t taken root.

I’m thinking fall before life settles down enough for me to concentrate.

Tinkering with cover art

November 26, 2013 | Real life

In between edits for A Scarlet Past and Simply Irresistible , I’ve been working on Joon’s Temptation, which turned into a much bigger project than the light edit I’d imagined. :shocked:

Naturally, after a week of agonizing over important points (a week on Enyo is four days long instead of the three I mistakenly thought) I did the sensible thing and set the story aside until after the third mech adventure is complete. Instead I fell into the seductive trap of redoing covers. One of the fun aspects of indie releases is the ability to change covers, text, just about anything without interrupting availability. :cool:

After much deliberation I added a green outline to the text for Dalila’s Choice. Uh, probably not visible. :blush:

Dalila version b

Here’s the softer French Script version:

Whatcha think?

Juggling multiple projects

August 23, 2013 | Real life

9813453-circus-performer-juggling-with-balls-on-wire

Head hopping (more about what it is and why it’s unpopular here) and here) usually refers to the distracting business of changing the viewpoint character without notice. Many readers find the practice irritating and editors usually advise against it.

While reading for pleasure, I prefer one point of view for a scene, chapters and even entire books in a single POV are fine with me.

The kind of head hopping plaguing me at the moment is similar, but more properly known as story hopping. There are writers who work on multiple novels at the same time. Not me. Well, not on purpose.

Simply Irresistible and A Scarlet past are both in edits while the third mech adventure is still unfolding, plus the usual background clamor from the dozens of unwritten stories continues to rumble.

Of course, I can only actually work on one story at a time, but my brain flits from one to the other since all three are active. Even with the mechs set on simmer I’m in overload mode. :pinch:

Do you prefer to concentrate on one task at a time or do enjoy juggling projects?
