The Sneakiest Peek and A Line

I posted lots of other stuff yesterday when it was actually #1LineWed, so here's this week's line that's actually three because I have no self control. Speaking of no self control...I got clean line art back from the artist doing my illustrated covers for the next series, and I asked her permission to share some… Continue reading The Sneakiest Peek and A Line

More Fantasy Indie Posts

I didn't keep up with #FantasyIndiesMay and I've missed some #FantasyIndiesJune, but I do have some posts from Twitter I thought might be good to share here. At this rate, you might be able to read the entirety of this trilogy through posts! Just kidding, not really, but I do hope these entice you to… Continue reading More Fantasy Indie Posts

Blogaversary

Today's my 13 year WordPress anniversary. Wild. I don't think I have blogs going back that far here, but I've been using this account on WordPress for at least that long. And let me tell you, 2009 was a very different time on the internet. Now, I don't want to do a "back in the… Continue reading Blogaversary

#1LineWed – Theme: Sophistication

I mean, villains arguing about moral superiority is a little like arguing about sophistication, right? Also, my newsletter came out today. Check it out!

A Little Inspiration

I'm in a great mood this morning, and I'm doing #FantasyIndiesJune on Twitter (I did okay-ish in May), and I've probably already shared this quote before, but I'm doing it again. My view on these lines from Howl's Moving Castle are steeped in an overall feminist reading (sorry, not sorry, can't help it). This could… Continue reading A Little Inspiration

I Saw Neil Gaiman Speak

I can't believe I didn't blog about this right away, but it was very much like one of those dreams that make you feel hazy and floaty when you wake up like you know it didn't really happen but you have all the emotions like it did, except this was real. So. Words. They're hard.… Continue reading I Saw Neil Gaiman Speak

A #1LineWed Return – Through A

I haven't blogged much this month, but I'm getting back into it. Also, purple. These books are coming along great, and I have a whole scrum board for my writing process now. It's insane. I'm like...a business now. This is what paying taxes does to a lady, I guess.

A Handful of Thoughts on Saturday Night

I just watched Don't Look Up. The only thing "wrong" with this movie is that the people who need to learn from it absolutely won't, and it gives the rest of us with brains in our heads worse anxiety than we've already got. Seriously, I was on the verge of a panic attack the whole… Continue reading A Handful of Thoughts on Saturday Night

Writing Plans For 2022

I didn't know how to plan out my year with Vacancy being unfinished going into 2022, but now that it's done, it's time. I had a plan for 2021, and I did a lot of the things I hoped I would, but I also fell behind. Considering we... moved four times between September 2020 and… Continue reading Writing Plans For 2022
