Last post, I talked a little about how Hubby and I met and were married. I intended to get another post in before today, but time hasn’t been my friend this past week. Besides getting everything ready for Hubby and I to renew our marriage vows, my mom’s brother fell critically ill and passed away suddenly, and a long-time family friend passed away suddenly too. Those were on top of the one-year anniversary of my step-dad’s death. So the post I’d intended to post earlier will go up in a few days. Today, right after our regular Sunday morning church services, Hubby and I renewed our marriage vows. We kept everything really simple and casual and enjoyed family and friends who couldn’t be with us the first time, while we missed those who couldn’t be there this time. My dad. Hubby’s mom and dad. My step-dad. Our minister from the … Continue reading →
On Sunday, May 19th, Hubby and I will celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary by renewing our vows. It won’t be a big fairy tale wedding, but our friends and family will be there, so it will be perfect. I thought it might be fun to do a couple of short posts about some of the things we’ve learned about relationships and making them last. We’ve had ups and downs over the years, though not as bad as many couples, and there are reasons for that, and we’ve been extremely lucky. Love at first sight? When we met, Hubby was a career soldier and I was a college student. He’d come to campus to visit his brother, and I’d stayed the weekend to cover work for a sick friend. I had recently ended a serious relationship and had no interest in starting a new one. He was career-minded and on orders … Continue reading →

In my opinion they are. I KNOW this one is! I’ve been mostly absent from the site for a LONG time. Between health stuff and writing, I’ve neglected everything else. But I have good news on both fronts… I’m getting my gall-bladder out, which will take care of my newest batch of symptoms. No date yet, but as soon as I can get it done. We were supposed to have “Summon Dorn” out on Valentines day. Didn’t happen. Damn gall bladder took a LOT of writing hours from me. Sick kids took a BUNCH more. So we rescheduled for March 1st. Also didn’t happen. Somewhere in there my laptop died so I bit the bullet and replaced the one I really liked a LOT. With a laptop that runs Windows 8. Lost 3 writing days to getting everything moved from backup – yes, I backed up, Thank God! – and learning … Continue reading →
We’re rapidly closing in on March 1st, (*panics*) the release date for “Archangels Creed 2: Summon Dorn”. While Azure and I are busting ass to finish up, we’re also working to get word out about the series. A few weeks ago, I stopped by Kriss Morton’s Cabin Goddess blog, and asked to do a guest post. She gave me one of her amazingly innovative Fourth Wall Friday spots. Fourth Wall Friday is one of those concepts that’s so basic you wonder why everyone isn’t doing it. FWF posts give readers an inside look at how writing works and what it means to each author. It gives a rare glimpse into the author’s mind and thought processes as the story is formed. Stop by Cabin Goddess to see our 4th Wall Friday and see how Azure and I work with such powerful characters. While you’re there, make sure you Like and Share the post, … Continue reading →
I’ve been a BAAAAaaaaaadddd Blogger! No, it’s true. I haven’t posted in… well, a long time. And I’m behind on writing. Like seriously behind. Behind enough to delay the release of Book 2 in the “Archangels Creed” series. There’s a reason, but it doesn’t get the writing and editing done. So, rather than put out less than our best work, Azure and I have decided to delay the release of “Dorn” until March 1st. As much as we want it in readers’ hands, we want to do it justice and write the best story we’re capable of more. I’m mentioned chronic health problems a few times but haven’t given many details. Since it’s such a limiting factor in all I do, I should probably elaborate more. But for right now, suffice to say, my health has recently cut into my work time, enough to significantly effect my output. I’m feeling … Continue reading →
I’d like to give a warm welcome (pun intended) to my great friend, Caris Roane! If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and check out her “Guardians of Ascension” series! Four words – HAWT VAMPIRES with WINGS! She’s a fantastic writer and this series has that something extra to send it over the top. OK, enough of that – here’s Caris! Hi, everyone! I want to thank Kenra for having me today as part of my WARM-UP-YOUR-WINTER BLOG TOUR. On most of the blogs on this tour, I’ll be revealing excerpts from the sixth book in my vampire series called, GATES OF RAPTURE (12/24). I created the tour with the hope that you might get to know my Guardians of Ascension, who are my most beloved winged vampire warriors. I know the covers have wings on them, but the books aren’t about angels AT ALL…just vampires…with wings. I also … Continue reading →
Well, not really HERE here, but close enough. Azure Boone (best friend, co-author, critique partner) and I recently released our first joint project, Archangels Creed 1: Kassern. As part of our promotion for ”Kassern” we decided to make it FREE for Christmas! The promotion will run Dec 24, 25, and 26. Get your copy HERE! Then we figured, what the hell, let’s make it a REAL gift! We put ALL* our books FREE for the same period! While you’re busy reading, Azure and I will be busy too. Azure is recovering from the birth of Baby #9! As usual, I’m riding herd on the 3 grandsons – they’re good kids, but they’re so close in age they can be difficult to handle. And while we’re meeting the demands of very active families, we’re also writing in every spare second, and every not-so-spare second. Archangels Creed 2: Dorn is well under … Continue reading →
Between a Hubby with bronchitis, 3 tiny boys with a stomach virus, battling a week-long migraine, and trying to help my Mom a little, I haven’t had a great deal of time left over for writing. Which meant blogging was one of the first cuts I made. Hopefully, at least some of that is resolved now, because I’m sooo over cleaning up buckets of vomit. B} Who The Hell Won? The first order of business: the winners of the Tight Spaces Release Tour Giveaway. Ashley Anne Applebee, LaNan Ray, and Carin Walker won copies of Tight Spaces. I’ll email all of you with information. Safe Heart Release On November 1st, I very quietly released the first book in the Blood Dragon series: Safe Heart. A blog tour and launch party are in the planning stages – I’ll announce more as plans are finalized. In the meantime, pick up a copy! Buy Safe Heart … Continue reading →
It’s been a HORRIBLY long time since I’ve blogged! Apologies, for more than one reason, are in order. First, I missed the posts for the last week of my Tight Spaces Kick Off Blog Tour, including the finale to announce the winners of the giveaway! I have good reasons, I promise. (FYI, the finale post will go up in a few days, within a week.) Second, I owe the members of my blogging network extreme apologies, since I haven’t been active there either. As a consequence, I haven’t Tweeted the announcements for their blog posts. Sorry, guys! I PROMISE, I’m getting back to it! Third, I’m sorry, Azure! As you know, Azure Boone, BFF and Crit Partner, and I are working on a joint project that will seriously rock your world. The first book of our Paranormal Romance series, “Archangel’s Creed, The Summoning I, Kassern” is moving fast and we … Continue reading →
