We are getting closer to the release of my new book, Big Lake Hoarder. Roberta Jensen finished proofing the last chapters on Saturday and sent them to me, and yesterday morning I made her corrections then printed the entire manuscript out for Terry to go over again. Once she does that and I make her […]

I believe that one of the things that makes our marriage successful is that Miss Terry and I have a clear understanding of who does what in our household. For example, I write books and she edits and proofreads them. I promote the books so that their sales give us a comfortable income, and Terry […]

I apologize for not being able to post a blog yesterday, but I’m back again. Last night I spent two hours trying to log onto Go Daddy to post a blog, and I kept getting an error message saying that there was a problem on their end that was blocking communication. I finally gave up […]

I think most of America has spent the last two days on pins and needles, wondering what was going to happen on Election Day and then how the final count would come out. As of midnight last night, it was still up in the air, although Joe Biden had a commanding lead. But as they […]

I was back at it yesterday, cranking out words in the first book in my new Tinder Street historical family saga series. I got a little more than 3,200 words done by the end of the day, which puts me over 100,000 words total in the book. Actually, I am at 102,879 words, but who’s […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I don’t have anything else to talk about […]

Yesterday afternoon my second proofreader finished Dead Romeos, and this morning I will make her corrections, then send it on to my last proofreader. With any luck at all, the book should be out by the end of this coming week. I know many writers who seem to agonize over every page of a manuscript […]

Thank you everybody who sent emails and messages expressing concern about my health. I feel a lot better than I did Sunday and Sunday night. Not great, but better. Terry thought of something yesterday morning that may explain what’s going on with me. A week ago last Sunday I started a new medication for diabetes, […]

Do you remember when I said in yesterday’s blog that after I got my latest book, Big Lake Snowdaze, out how I planned to goof off for a couple of weeks? I’m not sure how that’s going to work out. As it turns out, I don’t do leisure well. Yesterday morning I gave the new […]
