In a nutshell, it went…

Spoiler Reviews

I love reviewers. Love them. Especially when they  1.) are nice to me and 2.) spell my name correctly. Like this review in particular, from the Pittsburgh Tribune (warning: spoilers!). “A raucous Halloween production,” they say — which I appreciate simply for the use of the word “raucous.” They praise my clever idea and Bob’s exuberant art, and list…

You Guys ROCK.

Dude, I went to bed thinking I’d be lucky if one or two people responded to lay eyes on this manuscript real quick.

Just Can’t Help Myself

I was only going to edit one chapter tonight, but everybody went to bed and I just couldn’t stop. Finally, after far too long a time, I am finished with what feels like the umpteenth revision of HAVEN, my YA paranormal/horror novel.

Yup, tailgating and standing-room-only tickets and everything.Definitely something I’ve never done before. Luckily, I’m always game to try new things. FGB has told me lots of things I need to know beyond the McNabb move, like that…

The God of Last Moments

As you know from reading this blog (*waves to those who are newcomers*), I’m usually quite vocal about the origin of my stories. For one, knowing a little bit about them (beyond the title), helps you as a reader decide whether you even want to bother. For two, it helps those of you who are writers answer the everlasting…

Happy October!

It’s here! And it finally feels like fall outside! I am glad this month has finally arrived, even if it means losing the leaves on the gorgeous oak tree outside my bedroom window. To welcome in this spooktacular month (yeah, I went there), I thought I’d share with you this awesomely creepy tree I found planted right outside our…
