Nominated for RMFW writer of the year 0 (0)

Wow. All I can say is “thank you, what an honor,” to the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers. I’m one of three nominees for their Writer of the Year award. I’m probably the most inexperienced author in either books published or time with the RMFWs (here’s a look at the nominees, under Mario Acevedo, the 2009 […]

Ham convention and the Michigan UP 0 (0)

In May, we visited the biggest Ham (amateur radio operators) Convention in the United States, and I watched my husband go silly with glee. I’m not the only geek in this household. We also visited Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, called the UP, and fell in love with Mackinac Island. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the […]

PPLD Mountain of Authors, PPWC 0 (0)

Here I am at my table at the Pikes Peak Library District’s (PPLD) 4th annual Mountain of Authors. I was invited to attend and be on their genre author panel. Surprisingly, almost all the other authors spent their introduction time explaining why their books don’t really qualify as genre (to be fair, one of the […]

Book covers, and the changing face of Ariane Kedros 0 (0)

Lots of activity, nothing to report 0 (0)

Nothing much seemed to happen this month, but we did replace the wrecked Ford Ranger with another one (USAA insurance is awesome!), traded in two Mazdas for a Honda, had someone rip up the parquet in the entry hall and replace it with tile, while I worked on a longer proposal for three more Kedros […]

My Ranger is totaled while I’m away 0 (0)

Took time off from writing to visit my sister and her husband in Phoenix and enjoy the mild weather (see photo). Meanwhile, hubby stayed in CO and fought the snow and ice. I’m speaking literally, because hubby was in an accident where he rolled my truck and managed to walk away without a scratch. The […]
