Well peeps, in about 12 days, I’ll be hitting a milestone birthday –that’s right, I’ll be um – 30. Forget what I said about being 33 last year. I’m taking a bit of a break from my current WIP, tentatively titled Gunslinger Witch, although my friend Robin says I should be careful it’s not confused … Continue reading Musing 10/16/17 – Are We Getting Too Old For This Sh**? Part 2 or: “So now blogs are obsolete?”
With all the Musings, I’ve been writing for the past few weeks you would think this would be easier. I’m considering letting my work go. It took me five years to write my work mainly due to life throwing all types of crap at me and I’ve actually gotten some positive feedback not to mention … Continue reading Mini-Musing: 09/17/17 ~ It’s Hard to Let Go
This Musing is actually going to handle a couple of subjects that are on my mind right now. I ask for your patience. If you haven’t already you may wish to read my two previous Musings which are companions to this one. Yesterday, I’m sitting in my car in the parking lot of a small … Continue reading Musing 9/12/17 ~ Are We Getting Too Old For This S***?
It’s called Diverse Voices, Own Voices or Marginalized Voices and more recently BAME – I just saw this for the first time yesterday so really, I don’t know how long this has been in use but if I’m using the right definition according to Acronymfinder.com it is, BLACK, ASIAN & MINORITY ETHNIC. It’s called many … Continue reading Musings 9/7/17: What Exactly is Diversity in Writing?
Wow! Two Musings in two days, that’s a record! First I want to say that I’m not trying to offend ANYONE with this post, certainly not people in the industry. Either way this may or may not get me into a situation but I just need to get this out of my system.Again, if you’ve … Continue reading Musing 8/29/17– May I Have A Word, Literary Agents?
I'm a big fan of the Nostalgia Critic! Well it’s sort of an off and on relationship. I gave him up a few times but came back. Why mention this? Because there is a question I was pondering concerning stories that are not quite well -- they're different and they seem to be the type … Continue reading Musing 08/28/17– Weird is the New Brilliant?
Not too long ago, on my FaceBook page, I left a cryptic message saying I had made the hardest decision of my life. Well here’s the skinny on that. On July 17th, I requested a reversion of rights from Liquid Silver Books for Illusion of Night, Memory in Shadow and Soul Fires. Illusion of Night … Continue reading IMPORTANT PLEASE READ! CHANGES!
I’m sitting here doing homework, and am doing all right in this course so far – Rhetoric and Critical Thinking – another class I’ll likely ace. Oh yes, A- in my Literature class but was anyone really surprised by that? Not me! Anyway, I’m sitting here thinking of shutting everything down. Just not updating my … Continue reading Mini-Musing 12/8/16
I thought since my last Musings was about the scarier aspect of the business, I thought I'd do something in contrast. So with this Musing I'm going to discuss one of the best things about this business -- US! Authors I mean. Hell, there wouldn't be a business without us, right? Anyway, I thought maybe … Continue reading Musings 7/10/16: These are a Few of my Favorite…Authors!
So I’m cleaning my office today, despite being on stay-cation. Trust me, it’s messy and needs it. Now last time I did this I mentioned on Facebook that I came across some books I don’t recall purchasing and/or reading. I guess it happens when you have almost 400 books in your office alone and keep … Continue reading Mini-Musing –This is a Scary Business
