Well Hell!

From deep in my writing cave (which is really my kitchen table-cum-desk-cum breakfast bar).

I'm hard at work and deep in self doubt. Most people have no idea just what it takes to write a novel. The plotting the research. The actual putting of words together so that they not only make sense but convey emotion, description and move the story along. Don't get me started on character development.

But as I sit here completely rewriting Psychokinesis I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. My wrist ache my eyes beg for mercy but Darcelle and Caden are now characters that people can relate too. The story richer and fuller and making a hell of  a lot more sense.So back to the grindstone go I.

Here are a few post I've enjoyed in the last few days.

I found this one through Janet Reid. This is Myra McEntire

Then there was Nathan Bransford explaining what was wrong with me. Just in case you're wondering I lack confidence.

And I do so love a man in uniform. Find an interview of one here at Dancing Branflakes

Birthday Brunch!

It's that time of the year again. I celebrated my 31st birthday on Friday. A friend of mine is hosting my birthday brunch this year. I know for the past three years I've only done brunches but really I hate having to fight traffic. Besides the hubby cooked steaks an shrimp, handed me a glass of wine and we watched the sunset from out back porch. So off I go today to spend time with good friends and family.

Friend Pimpage!

Introducing my friend and author K.C. Burn.

I've been writing for what feels like my whole life. I'm a sucker for a happy ending (get your mind out of the gutters!) so it's been romance almost all the way. Recently moved from Canada to Florida with my husband and cats, and shortly thereafter discovered a love of writing gay romance—the hotter the better. Who knew?

MIA Case Files: Wolfsbane 

Werewolves are coming through an open portal and one of them wants Adam Farelli.  Agent Lachlan Carmichael can't let that happen, even if it means stepping out of the closet for the town's sexiest screw-up.

K.C. Burn will be guest blogging at Naughty Author Chicks on the Sunday March the 28th.

Here's Wikipedia's definition of Babylon

I most frequently heard the police being referred to as Babylon growing up by the Rastafarian's. But that's not what I'm referring to right now. I'm referring to Babylon as a crisis.

Funny enough. I've been through many of these. I can handle it even though it doesn't feel like it just now. I'm still writing though it has slowed to a trickle. I leave you with this.
