Meeting those Deadlines.

WooHoo, new release for 2015.

Now to get to one of the other stories waiting for their turn. There are so many to choose from. At any particular moment an idea can pop into my head and I dash down the basics, then stuff it into what I call 'the pot'. When I wrap up one project, I give the pot a stir and see what pops to the surface, demanding attention.

Not that I work on one project at a time. Sometimes I have two or three stories and maybe an article up on the current project's board. I also have to keep up my blog, social media, and appearances. I've already booked a number of events, and working on other, but still need to write.

As an author we either have deadlines put on us, or put them on ourselves. I'm currently working on a new novel, another story that hasn't decided its true destiny and an article for my "Ask 5 Friends" column with Slice of SciFi. I'd like to add another project in there somewhere, but let's wait and see. With my agent having three of my novels to shop, anything can change the direction I have to take.

But trust me. You'll see something else before the end of the year. In the meantime, enjoy my latest release.

Love ya,

So we waved 2014 goodbye and welcomed a whole New Year with nothing but anticipation for what it can bring. As an author I have my goals, one new novella release and one more novel to send off to my agent. I have the first drafts done on both and they are entering the edit and beta testing phase.

I also have to start mapping out the New Year of Cons and appearances. Love to get out there and meet fans, talk about writing, and schmooze with other attendees. So expect a whole new collection of pictures this year. Have to find myself that Hottie for 2015. After all, I had John Barrowman 2013, Adrian Paul 2015, so I have to find someone of equally sizzling sex appeal... Just For You (and definitely me).

So, before I kick off this New Year, I'll give you one last glance at 2014, at the Wyked Women Who Write book signing in Henderson (Las Vegas) Nevada on Dec. 13th.

Here we are.
Sharon Skinner on the far left, me on the far right, Gini Koch in the pink sparkly cowgirl hat.
Amy was our SuperFan, buying everything she didn't already have.
Love you, Amy!
Vegas as so great, they're having us back for another book signing. We're hoping to take more of our friends for a real Book Extravaganza. However, if you missed us in Vegas, pop in and get our books. Or head over to our links and order them. If we make your city, we'd love to meet you and sign them.
So, where will I be in 2015?  Only have a preliminary list so you'll have to check in from time to time for updates on engagements. But here's what I have so far.
