ARCs Are Out...Finally

Of course after I sent out a dozen or so copies that’s when I noticed a few typos and formatting issues that I missed. Sigh. But, now that the ARC is done, I can move on to other things. Like my back logged to-do list. I should have been in bed over an hour ago…so,

In The Court of Public Opinion

The Court of Public Opinion has been working overtime on Milo Yiannopoulos. Unlike in a real court, one is not innocent until proven guilty and there are no rules of conduct.

Jon Del Arroz posed this question on Twitter: Yes, Jon, I am tired of winning. Winning is hard work. Lots of hard work. I’m tired of the late nights working, I’m tired of characters vying for attention, I’m tired of editing…oh, I’m so tired of editing, I’m tired of having to be meticulously organized so

Love and SCOTUS

So this happened. I spent two hours, almost, talking to Declan Finn about SCOTUS, Valentines Day, romance novels, Path of Angels and generally making my throat soar from talking so long. Ugh. There were a few things that I didn’t get to, so they will become blog posts later. Also, I was dropped the last
