Twiddling my thumbs as Amazon uploads my book

That Scary Next Step

So, here’s my progress report on releasing my novel into the world, like a baby bird that has just learned to fly: I have gone through all of my copy editor’s edits. I have the cover. My sister-in-law/photographer sent me a link to the photos she took, and out of 58, I have to narrow […]

Of books and puppies

Happy New Year, people! Okay, it’s January 2, but it’s still a new year, and better late than not at all. Yesterday, I was busy cuddling up to my friend’s new puppies, Jem and Scout, who are adorable mini Goldendoodles, and here’s a heartstring-tugging picture of them: Are you totally melting?
