It’s been over a month since the launch of Wicked Sense. It seems like it was ages ago! The release month was a wonderful time. The novel performed modestly but well for a debut author in such a niche genre, and even reached Top 100 in one Amazon subcategory and a coveted #1 in another (yay!).
During this month, and in the weeks preceding it, I’ve worked hard … Continue reading
Recently, our family has been traveling by car a lot. Plane travel is a hassle and so expensive! We’ve decided to enjoy the wonders near home. So we hop on our minivan (don’t laugh; it’s huge, functional, powerful, responsive, and one of the most comfortable cars to travel) and go.
But I don’t believe in DVD players … Continue reading
We’re skipping YAmondAY once again, because the release week for Wicked Sense ended up being longer than seven days. I might rename it “The Longest Week,” as if it were an old World War II-movie. Anyway, the “week” will wrap up on Wednesday Sep 19th, with the Goodreads Giveaway (1,000 entries and counting!) … Continue reading
I’m loving the release of Wicked Sense because it gives me a chance to hang out with fascinating people. Today, the fantastic Jennifer L. Oliver has invited me for an interview on Behind the Quill.

It’s finally here: the official launch date for my YA paranormal romance/urban fantasy novel, WICKED SENSE!
To celebrate the event, a release day tour! The amazing Vickie Dold from Innovative Online Book Tours came up with this all-star lineup of book bloggers. Please take a moment to visit their sites:
I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time. The novel was finished a while ago. It won a prize and complimentary critiques from professionals. It was edited and proofread. I even had drafts printed for beta readers with a temporary cover. But the “real” cover—the perfect cover—was hard to find.
The novel is … Continue reading
For a long time I’ve been hiding my writing career from most friends and acquaintances. Well, not exactly “hiding” it. Just… not publicizing it. I’m not sure why. Perhaps I felt I didn’t belong. Maybe I wasn’t so sure whether I wanted to be a professional writer.
When my daughter told me she wanted to … Continue reading
A published post never comes back. It’ll linger on the internet until the Sun turns into a red giant (it cannot go supernova–it’s true, look it up.) You can never have it back or truly delete it, because search engines will cache it, bloggers will reblog it, and people will remember it (or save it or take screenshots of it). But you can still update it.
Why would you update a blog post? Here are … Continue reading
One of these trailers is for a failed pilot episode; the other two are fake.
Second: Aquaman (failed pilot)
Would you watch any of these movies? They don’t look more ludicrous than the Battleship trailer :-) Do you have a favorite cartoon, game, hero, or book that you’d like to be mande into a movie?
