Weekend Plans – July 6-8, 2018

Time for one more post on my weekend plans as part of the #100Days series. If you follow the blog, you know that I took a break after finishing up my recent run of books over the last six weeks (publishing Permanently Princess, Rush, and Ripple, and drafting Frannie’s story for Seaside Valleria 3 and handing […]

Goals & Future Publishing Schedule

Now that I’ve published Ripple, the second in the Seaside Valleria series, I wanted to give you a quick look and what’s coming up next. I wrote a little bit about it in this post, and I gave my newsletter subscribers a few more details, so I’m sharing them here now, too. Every year around […]

New Release! (and Vision Boards – Planning Post 5)

Weekend Plans – Week 11

It’s the weekend! Now that I’ve finished up Rush and Ripple (Yay!), my weekend goals have shifted, at least for the next couple weeks. I won’t start writing my next book until July, which gives me time to catch up on ALL the things I set aside so I could finish the books. The pre-orders […]

Happy Dance Time!

Why am I celebrating today? Because I’ve just finished – and I mean FINISHED – the first two books in the Seaside Valleria series, Rush and Ripple! Whoo hoo! The pre-orders aren’t up yet, but they should be in the next several days. I’ll do a post when they are. So when are they releasing? […]

Tuesday Thoughts

In keeping with my recent posts on self-care, here’s a Tuesday Reminder: Sometimes it seems like a constant struggle, doesn’t it? Reaching for that glimmer of happiness, grabbing it and holding it tight before it disappears again. Yesterday was a good day, a great day, in fact. I finally finished testing the Rush ebook (hurray!) […]

Progress vs Procrastination

Today I argue that procrastination can be necessary for progress. Last week was tough. I’ve learned when I have those sorts of weeks that I need to take time for self-care. But… What about the book? What about the publishing date I have in mind? What about this? What about that? I need to work, […]

Today Is a Good Day

Today’s starting off on a good note… I am SO excited because Seaside Valleria 3 is off to my editor! Whew! This is off to my developmental editor, which could take a month or more, so I’m not expecting to work on it again July (I’m hoping for an August release if everything goes well). […]
