Hello Everyone! It’s certainly warm here. A little too warm, some might say. Although it could be worse. I am trying to enjoy the midsummer flowers as much as possible, given that there’s still a chemical toilet next door filling up the neighborhood with toxic fumes. So mostly I’ve been hiding out inside. But that means I’ve […]Read more "Sneak peek of sinister squirrels"
Hello everyone! Happy Solstice! This is always one of my favorite times of year, and not just because it’s right around my birthday. If you want to experience the Solstice the way it was meant to be experienced (sort of), English Heritage will once again be live-streaming it from Stonehenge Sunday evening and Monday morning, BST. I […]Read more "Hot summer deals and cover reveals"
Hello Everyone! Such a busy weekend! I hope you’re enjoying it, wherever you are.

Hi Everyone! I hope you’re having a great May. It’s been surprisingly cool here. That has not prevented the pollen from being released in enormous quantities. I like to think it’s giving my voice a sexy, throaty quality. I suspect it’s actually just making me sound hoarse. I’ve got a jam-packed newsletter today, so I’ll […]Read more "Last chance to get The Midnight Land I Free! Plus excerpt of The Singing Shore, with pictures"
Hey Everyone! Yes! It’s true! I finished the first draft of The Singing Shore! As you can see, it was a gargantuan task. And there are many more gargantuan tasks left to do before it will be ready to go out into the world. I can’t even begin to guess at a release date at this point. […]Read more "“The Singing Shore” is finished! Sort of."
Hey Everyone! I hope you’re hanging in there with this crazy weather we’ve been having across a lot of the US. Especially if you’re in Texas. Here in NC, it wasn’t nearly that bad, but we did get more freezing rain than we would have liked. Fortunately no major trees went down in my neighborhood, […]Read more "Doggy Drama!

Hello Everyone! I hope you are staying safe and healthy and enjoying the new year. I’m still hunkered down pretty well, only going out to take Renee the Italian Greyhound to see her favorite people at the pet food store. She is still trying to recover from her tragic tooth issue and consequent dental surgery […]Read more "My Favorite Fantasy Books of the Year So Far"
Hello Everyone! Goodness, what a week, what a week! I hope you are staying calm and safe in the midst of the maelstrom. I have been doing reasonably well, although there have been some issues. Nothing to do with the madness in DC, but rather with my furry companions. Precious Renee, my Italian Greyhound mix, […]Read more "Vet Visits and Audiobook Giveaway"
Hello Everyone! I hope you’re staying safe and enjoying the holiday season. I have succumbed to my addiction to online gaming in a very minor way. You see, I got a Jacquie Lawson advent calendar. You might think that’s pretty safe, but noooooooo. If you’ve ever gotten one, you know that they’re fiendishly stuffed with […]Read more "The Midnight Land I is now free on all storefronts"
Hello all! I hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend (if you’re in the US) and not going too crazy with Black Friday madness. I myself may have just bought a new computer (gulp!).
