COSine 2010 0 (0)

I attended COSine again this year and even though it’s small, I have a lot of fun (perhaps more so than at larger conventions). In the picture, I’m relaxing between sessions with my friend and critique partner, Robin. More COSine 2010 pictures are in the Image Gallery.

Merry Christmas 0 (0)

Because of Mem’s funeral, I had to push my review of the Pathfinder copyeditor changes in to December. After that, we ran around the house cleaning and throwing away junk (or hiding it–which is good enough, right?) My sister and her husband, as well as my parents, stayed with us over Christmas. It’s been a […]

What’s in a book title? 0 (0)

Quite a bit, actually. For my first published book, I had the experience that many new authors have: the title change. Initially, I thought my original title was great, but I quickly learned that I didn’t know much about the publishing, packaging, and marketing of books. My vague title, which was based upon theme and […]

Vigilante is here, MileHiCon 41 0 (0)

Vigilante is on the bookshelves! Ran myself ragged with signings, conventions, and the release party. Much of MileHiCon 41 was a blur, although I remember best the panel where we considered whether paper books would be totally replaced with e-books (that question never goes away, does it?) Of course, I didn’t think it possible that […]

Monument Art Hop, my new Sony Reader 0 (0)

It’s been a busy month, what with the RMFW Colorado Gold Conference, a signing, my birthday, etc. The signing was at a local bookstore (Covered Treasures) during the last Monument Art Hop of the summer. If you live near Monument, CO, then I recommend getting to those summer Art Hops, as well as the outdoor […]

Swine flu at USAFA, and Vigilante proofs 0 (0)

The Basic Cadet (Doolie) we’re sponsoring caught the swine flu after arriving at the U.S. Air Force Academy, so he couldn’t visit us on his one day off in early July. Actually, our sponsored cadet is really my husband’s-sister’s-nephew-by-marriage and in Cajun terms, he’s family. It looks like he’ll be okay and he’s been given […]
