After many days of headaches and worries, my 9 to 5 finally allowed us to Work From Home (WFH). Don't get me wrong, I'm still worried, but not as as much. I worried about my Big Brother, who had Type 2. I'm calmer now and having to stay in. Since our governor just dropped the … Continue reading The Publishing Industry and COVID19

Literary Agents, you’re all fabulous. Seriously, we writers greatly appreciate you! We appreciate the way you weave your magic with publishers and make certain we get the best deals, lots of exposure and an over-allsense of well-being. However… There’s one thing that’s been both puzzling and frustrating to me. How come you never call? Or … Continue reading Musing ~ 12/1/18: The Importance of Being Receptive
...Or, "If I can do it the hard way, why can't you?" I know it's been awhile since I posted here. But it's been one of those, life gets in the way, kind of years. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you'll know I was downsized from my job of ten years in … Continue reading Musing 11/5/18 ~ Follow the Rules!
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***?
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 definitely need to go through my hundreds of books more often. I found more authors who’s books I either don’t recall reading (probably because I hadn’t) or books where their were sequels that I lost track of. But you know it’s like finding buried treasure. Yes, I have THAT MANY books and my TBR … Continue reading Mini-Musing 8/1/16–More Authors Found!
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!
