A little insurance.

I’m an obsessive backer-upper when it comes to my files. Not every day, which is bad on my part, but redundantly. Two external drives for large quantities of data, plus two thumb drives specifically for works in progress, which fit in holders that go on my keyring and leave the house when I do. I … Read More

Writing How-To: Promotions

I responded to a promo question from newbie author who is a fellow writer at one of my publishers. I thought it might not be a bad idea to share my answers with y’all. Feel free to contribute your own ideas for what’s worked for you in the comments. Her e-book won’t be out for … Read More

Shhh…

This is how I feel right now for the next couple of minutes. I just turned in a manuscript to one of my publishers that I’ve been fighting to get done for a couple of weeks, and now, it’s done. So… iz basking And now, for the next project. see more dog and puppy pictures

What can you say?

I’ve wanted to write a post about the Haitian earthquake catastrophe, but really, what can you say? There are a lot of things I want to say, most of them involving epithets that would get this blog kicked over to the Blogger adult rating, about some of the asshats (I can say that, right?) who … Read More

What the…?

I’ve lived in Florida all my life. Only two other times I can remember it being this cold, but not for this long. The first was in 1976 or ’77, when it “snowed” very light flurries in the Tampa area (where I grew up), and again in the winter of 1989. This is ridiculous. They … Read More

Cover: "Steam"

Happy New Year! This is the cover for my soon-to-be released dragon shifter story, “Steam,” the sequel to “Boiling Point.” (Siren-BookStrand, writing as Tymber Dalton.) For those of you who enjoy my Triple Trouble shape-shifter series, you’ll be happy to learn this is a prequel to “Trouble Comes in Threes” and features Brodey Lyall.

Writing How-To: Avoiding Head Hopping POVs

Well, yesterday I did something I don’t get as much time to do lately as I’d like. I sat and finished reading a book. Unfortunately, this book was an older romance (published in the early ’90’s). I ordered it and the sequel from Paperbackswap.com because the sequel had been talked about on an Amazon.com discussion … Read More

Tis the Season to Fight the Humbugs

(No, the bulldog isn’t our bulldog, Bubbles, but I loved this pic.) I can sympathize. I know how he feels. I’m trying to stay in the holiday mood. I’m reeeealllly trying despite events of the past week. I’ve manged not to bark out “bah, humbug” yet. I’m ready for this year to be over. I … Read More

Hysterical video about BDSM Dominants

Okay, now, there’s nothing graphically explicit in this video, but it IS hysterically funny, and it does contain one bad word. Keep watching past the end to the “outtake.” LOL! Do not drink anything while watching this video! LOL

Open Letter to NY Publishers

(The article prompting this letter can be found here.) Okay, Simon and Schuster and Hachette, seriously, WTF? You are going to delay the release of ebooks for months after hardcover…why? “…Preserve your industry?” Seriously? Okay, let me explain some basic economics that apparently someone hasn’t taken the time to explain to you. Cheaper books (ebooks) … Read More

Nano…not.

They have graphics for the participants and winners, but does Nanowrimo have logos for those of us who not only missed the mark, but we never started? I mean, it’s not that I didn’t have time to write, because that’s why I didn’t have time to do Nano. Yes, it’s ironic. I was too busy … Read More

"…but I’d need to get another extension cord to do it."

And just like that, my husband unwittingly gave me the title for this blog post. Now, I’ve blogged about my husband’s holiday decorations before. This year we’ve added more wire animals, another couple of blow-ups (including my favorite, the huge chubby penguin), and have swapped out more of the lights for LEDs. One thing that … Read More

Random Humor: Muppets Singing "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Because it’s my blog, that’s why. And I love the Muppets and I love Queen. And this is one of my favorite songs!
