Been a while!

Wow. It’s been a while since I’ve posted on my poor neglected blog. Life has thrown me some crazy curve balls lately but that’s okay! I’m still here and kicking. I’ll get through it all. I’ve also been doing a lot of reading on self-publishing. I’m learning a lot. One of the things I’ve learned is to not spread yourself too thin when it comes to social media posts. And so I’ve decided to put the blog on official hiatus and focus all my social interaction on Facebook and Instagram. I’m also in the process of building my newsletter list and respond to all emails from readers. If you want to interact with me directly, signing up for my newsletter is the absolute best way. Of course, I’ll continue to post updates here of upcoming releases and other book news. But you’ll see it first if you’re a subscriber to my VIP Reader’s list. 😉

Gardening is not my forte…but I’m trying

It’s been a really long time since I’ve had a blog post. Sorry about that. Things have been busy and even though I have a lot of things I want to blog about, they are not really all that interesting. No one really wants to hear about my lousy work day. 😉 I don’t consider myself having a green thumb. It’s mostly brown. I kill things. I’m the only person I know who has been able to kill a bamboo and an aloe vera (and almost an ivy). You know, the plants that are mostly impossible to kill? Yeah, that’s me. A couple of years ago, the husband and I removed holly bushes from the front of the house. They were a litter box for the neighborhood cats and I was tired of smelling cat pee when I go to the front door. Anyway, in their place, we planted rose bushes. They’re actually doing really well! These are the knock-out roses. I transplanted a little piece of the rosebushes we have in the backyard to the front. I was pretty sure I’d killed it, but turns out I didn’t! I’ve been wanting wisteria for some time but wasn’t sure how to grow it. I couldn’t find seeds either. Then this spring, I found some at the garden center of the local home improvement store. I was pretty excited! So I bought it. We got it planted this weekend along with a new trellis so it has something to climb. All…

Mea Culpa! Release Day Faux Pas

It was brought to my attention there was an error with my upcoming release, A Little Taste of Heaven. Chapter two is missing in action (I guess chapter two decided it had better things to do than hang out in the book!). I’m so sorry that happened! Please accepted my sincerest apologies. If you have bought it today and get the incorrect version, please email me. I will personally send you a revised copy.
