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 →
I confess, I’m a horrible procrastinator. If I have a deadline, I’ll do most of a job ahead, and save the last bit to do as the clock is ticking off the deadline. This project was no different. TIGHT SPACES has been finished for a couple of weeks, and the release date decided. But did I upload it early? Nope! Waited until 36 hrs before the intended release. And, even though it was finished, I still added part of a scene Thursday evening, right before uploading. I’d hoped it would go live this morning, but it didn’t until mid-afternoon. But, it’s available now!! Buy TIGHT SPACES A lonely woman goes dancing with friends to kick the Bad Breakup Anniversary Blues. Her fantasy-man is willing to help, until her lowlife ex ambushes him. With the first anniversary of the messy break up of a long-term relationship bearing down, Amy has the … Continue reading →
*First, I’d like to thank everyone for the thoughts, prayers and positive energy as my family dealt with the loss of Reno, my much-loved step-dad. With your help, we made it through and managed to celebrate his life and rejoice that he doesn’t have to suffer any longer. The funeral was one of the largest our little town had ever seen, and there were 20+ classic cars in the procession. The only blemish on the day was my step-brother’s ex-wife. In her blatant gold digging, she cozied right up to SB, despite having called Reno everything but a milk-cow only a few weeks ago. Everyone knew she was only being nice to SB in order to get “her share” of his inheritance. Everyone except SB, that is. Oh, well. There are a few surprises coming her way, and she won’t be a happy camper when it’s all said and done.* … Continue reading →
Uh… Hi? Remember me? Yeah, I’m that Kenra Daniels. While I’ve been under my rock, the world has continued to turn. Shocking, I know, but true. I’ve come out for a breath of fresh air, and to share some news with you. You might remember I’ve spoken of my fantastic Critique Partner, and Bestie, Azure Boone? Weelllll…. Her book, Devil Wants A China Doll, has just been contracted for publication by Loose Id Publishing!!!! They’re shooting for an August 2012 release date. I’m telling you, guys, you really MUST read this book!! Azure is a phenomenal writer, and the story is fascinating. The Hero, Roan Kreed, is deliciously hot, and troubled, and a little bit bad… All ingredients for the kind of Romance Novel Hero you’d love to… yeah. Another wonderful friend and CP, Jennifer James, has announced that her novella, Love Kinection, has been picked up by Decadent Publishing!!!! (I”m a little … Continue reading →
First, I have to apologize. I haven’t posted here in far too long… For several reasons. Between power outages and internet service interruptions, one of the grandsons ill and whiny, and a bunch of other personal crap, I’ve barely had time to sit, let alone write or blog. And this evening I received word that my step-dad, Reno, is in the hospital with a bowel obstruction. His doctor thinks it’s rather minor and will be dealt with quite easily. The only concern is that he has several other serious health issues. Hopefully none of those will interfere, or be made worse by the current problem. With all that going on, I *still* haven’t managed to complete revisions for Blood Dragon so it can get on its way. Right now, after family, that has to be my top priority. So, until it’s done, this blog will go dark, along with my social … Continue reading →
A couple of weeks ago, I signed up for KT Hanna’s #writemotivation. Since then I’ve been doing a few things to make achieving my goals possible. I confess I haven’t been good at the obligations for #writemotivation. Today, I’ll follow all the participants on ‘Twitter, and visit and follow their blogs, to make cheering them on simpler. I should have done that days ago. Now, on to the goals part. As you might recall, I’m going to work on: Put the finishing touches on the Blood Dragon revisions Get Blood Dragon on submission with at least 5 epublishers Write 40k words of new material on Blood Dragon II Get back on schedule for posting here For the past week, things have been crazy here, with 3 little boys in various stages of a stomach virus. Plenty of vomit and diarrhea, tons of laundry. And if I NEVER see broth, Jello, or Pedialyte again, it’ll be too soon. Now, … Continue reading →
In Lieu of this week’s Spotlight: First a few notes: These days, it seems the more I accomplish, the further behind I get! In an effort to buckle down and get the priorities taken care of. Thanks to #writemotivation, I’ve had to plan how best to meet my goals, and that’s what this is. Right now, getting Blood Dragon out on submission is my highest priority professionally. I need to hit it hard until it’s perfect, and get it out there. To that end, some of my posts here will be recycled content from months ago. I posted these back when my blog went several days at a time with no visits, so they should be fresh to you. I’ll still be posting new content as well, just not as much. In April, I’ll be celebrating my first Blogaversary! Gonna try to do something special to celebrate, but I haven’t decided … Continue reading →
I’m thrilled to have multi-pubbed Paranormal Romance author Skhye Moncrief here for a guest post! She and I have become online buds, with similar health issues and a love of documentaries in common. Trust me when I say this lady is SMART! World building is her specialty, and she’s taught me a great deal, and I hope to learn much more from her. Today, she’s passing on an amazing technique to save time while allowing authors to keep all their info at hand so that verifying details is unbelievably simple. Okay, I’ll shut up and let Skhye tell you about the Lazy Writer’s Database. World Building – The Lazy Writer’s Database Looking for something to make world building easier? I say more efficient! There are many books and online sites that can tell you all the basics of world building. Add I’m extremely focused on getting a story finished and submitted … Continue reading →
So, today I signed up for #writemotivation March 2012 Goal Check. This is KT Hanna’s baby. The idea is to form a group of writers to help encourage and motivate each other, even on those days when our Inner Critic is a bitch. For March, each writer is asked to set attainable goals to work toward for the month. On Mondays, participants will blog about their progress, and visit each other’s blogs to encourage and motivate each other. All through the month, we’ll use the #writemotivation hashtag on Twitter to give each other that extra little push. I signed up because, right now, I need an extra kick in the pants to keep moving forward. Most of the time, I’m pretty productive, and keep things moving at a good pace. But… There’s always a BUT, isn’t there? And this one is pretty big. A few months ago, my daughter and … Continue reading →
