What a whirlwind it’s been lately. Along with a few interviews and advertising features, I think I’ve got almost all my guest-blog posts written and sent out now. It’s been a challenge to try to make each one unique without being an in-your-face Buy My Book post. So far for […]

Five Days and counting down …

Oh dear. Sven is going to come over here and whack me with a stick. No appreciable wordcount yesterday again. Oh, I was working on writing a story, but it was editing again, cutting as opposed to adding. And writing a blurb. And trying to figure out how to get […]

Sorry Sven

Writing about a Horse?

LA CIMMERII 3/18/94-11/28/07 I got an email this morning from BlueSue … one that has me in tears, which probably doesn’t even approach how Sue feels right now. She’s had to have one of her mares put down – La Cimmerii or Cimmi. Cimmi was the beautiful black Arabian Blue […]

Farewell to a distant friend

Just got back after a long day in TO (That’s a local shortform for Toronto, for you non-Canucks) And though it was long, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day. First the TRW meeting where Claire Delacroix talked about how to write synopsis – something I haven’t tackled yet but know […]

Synopses and sex (horse sex that is)
