Today is the full moon sometimes called the Harvest Moon. It's a time to reap the benefits of all the hard work we've done, gathering the fruits of our labor in preparation for the colder months ahead. Autumn is my favorite season, with Winter a close second. Knitting, writing, hot cocoa, and bundling up under … Continue reading The Harvest Moon
There's so much to be happy about this week. I think it's time for another list! An awesome launch for my latest short, sexy, Scifi novella, Duration of Stay. Gray Card hanging out in the top 100 for short Scifi/Fantasy reads for weeks (mostly). A new short, sexy, Scifi novella all wrapped up and … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Fifty
What's making me happy this week: seeing readers enjoy Duration of Stay! Yesterday was release day for Duration of Stay, and it hit the top 100 in short (2-hour) Scifi/Fantasy reads!

I had a vision for where I wanted my writing to be, and was intensely focused on getting there. "Phase … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Forty-Six
What's making me happy this week: new connections. I love connecting with other people who love books. I've been taking more time to read, and posting reviews as I can for works I really enjoyed. And I'm also working on learning how to make ads to help readers learn about my own books (that's where … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Forty-Five
When we research how to make a living as a writer, people talk about being serious about our writing and treating it like a job. We hear that writers need to defend our writing time. We need to take our work seriously so that others will as well. We need to connect to the right … Continue reading Treat it Like a Joy
What's making me happy this week: Summer's beauty. I'm taking a few moments to catch my breath, reflect, and move forward. Wishing you peace and happiness.
What's making me happy this week: tying up loose ends (see what I did there? 😉 ). Writing is a lot of fun, and I enjoy pretty much every part of creating a book and publishing it. It still feels really good to wrap up projects—and I'm wrapping up quite a few! I've received the … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness — Week Forty-Three
