The Numbers Game

I sometimes fixate on numbers that are not constructive to my writing. Rankings and ratings, views and followers.

This data can be helpful. It can give me valuable insight into how best to connect with my readers. Marketing is all about connecting books with the right people. But ultimately, I can’t control any of those numbers. Continue reading

A Quick Update

Samhain is the traditional publisher who gave me my start and I have several books with them. I’m sad to see them close and had a wonderful time working with them. Continue reading

The Quickening Moon — 2017

This year’s Quickening Moon finds me in a very different frame of mind from last year. There’s no fog, and I seem to have dealt with my winter colds in January (I hope!). Still, I don’t have the extreme focus that I’ve had for the last year and a half with my writing—and it’s a conscious choice.

Focusing on Happiness—Week Twenty

What I’m happy about this week: progress.

Sometimes you have to make your own path, or dare to use the unlikely ones you find along the way. The important thing for me is to keep moving, to keep finding my way.

I’m still figuring out the difference between resting and stopping. When I stop, I tend to lose focus. When I rest, I can keep thinking, keep planning, and keep looking for the path forward to the future life I’m building. I’m still making progress. It’s a fine line to walk, but I’m finding my balance there.
