Setting Goals

I like schedules. I like planning them, fitting in everything I need to accomplish and watching it gel together into a workable whole. Something inside me is centered when I finish a well thought out schedule. I stick with my shiny new schedule for a month or so until something happens and I get off-track. [...]

One Small Touch update

The edits are back and the story is -mostly- finished. I say mostly because I want to give it one last cover to cover read-through. Speaking of the cover, I designed it myself. Yes, I said I was going to either hire a pro or get my friend Troy to do it, but I don’t [...]

Night of Redemption blurb

First version of the blurb for my werewolf story. I’m hoping to have it out before October. Thoughts? OIL AND WATER He’s a werewolf. She’s a vampire hunter. He’s quick with a joke. She’s serious as a heart attack. When the two of them come together…love really bites. Night of Redemption, a cliched short story.
