Writing and Fur Babies

I’m staying busy with my writing, considering new strategy and working on sequels and new stories. I think my favorite part of writing is to think up something, then bring it to life on paper. I love the feeling I get when I play out the story as I write (I’m definitely a pantser most of the time).
But it’s important to also take time for yourself: some relaxation time; perhaps a little yoga. I hope everyone is staying safe and keeping healthy as we all gear up to where life takes us next.

Book covers that convert

Everyone judges books by their covers—they are the lifeblood of book sales. I use to design my own, but recently have opted to have a professional design most of them. I think they look awesome, and my readers agree.

Whiskered book tour

I’m on a virtual book tour right now for my fiction piece, A Whiskered Perspective. It’s a cat story for adults with a relationship twist: dating a narcissist. This is one relationship goal you don’t want to have.

Miller thinks she has found love but her cat, Pumpkin, tells a darker story. Not all love is equal, even if you desperately want it to be.

All it takes is a great smile, a winning personality, then when they’ve got control the switch flips and you start to deteriorate under their loveless gaze. Not if your cat has anything to say about it.

Check it out today!

Writing hurdles

My biggest hurdle with writing is I will type a sentence and put the wrong word down; do you sea what I mean? I try to edit things carefully before I publish or send out emails, but things still slip through the cracks. What’s your biggest issue with your passion?

Summer work week

What does a typical work week look like for you? For me, since I am a teacher, my summer workweeks shift dramatically from what I do during the school year. More time for hustles and hobbies, but always working.

Jumping on the Trampoline: re-release

I’m re-releasing my first published book, Jumping on the Trampoline. Due to a scandal it had slipped through the cracks and fallen into oblivion. Now, for the first time ever, it is available as an ebook.

God is a Mob Boss: new release

What do you think about religion, about God?
There are so many issues that are glossed over, or not addressed, or sometimes addressed inappropriately.
Mental Illness; abortion; suicide; loneliness; the point of it all.
I’ve taken what I have learned over the years, coupled that with my life experiences, and written a book, God is a Mob Boss, about these taboo issues. Because “You’re going to hell,” is not the way to reach people.

Plagued with ideas

I once read a post where a prolific author was asked how he comes up with ideas. His answer? He is plagued with ideas. My brain is like that—it’s always thinking something up. What about you? Does your brain feel like it’s always on?

92. Writing Update

I’ve got some new stories in the works. So this week is my high school’s spring break, and like so many other schools in Texas, we are extending our break out. Which means lots of writing time! One is completely written and is in the polishing stage. It will be a novella instead of a […]
