Flood thoughts

Sorry for the long quiet. I’m continuing to devote most of my writing time to my science fiction romance series. More about that later. But recent events in Houston have got me thinking about Tevenar, so I thought I’d share a little with you. My family has been lucky enough to stay high and dry during Hurricane Harvey. But this isn’t the first time many of my friends and neighbors have been affected by floods. I think that’s why natural disasters tend to work themselves into my fiction. Events like Tropical Storm Allison and Hurricanes Rita and Ike inspired twoContinue Reading

Weekly Update

I’m settling into the school year routine. Bethany is back at college, and Gareth is at school all day. I love having large unbroken chunks of time to work on my writing. For the next couple of months Gareth has marching band rehearsal until 6:30 every afternoon, so I’ve got even more time than the rest of the school year. I’m going to try to put it to good use. I’m working with a cover artist and beta readers on Nothing But the Truth, so expect to see it soon. I’d like to leave around a month between it andContinue Reading

Weekly Update

Hello, everyone. Sorry it’s been so long since I posted. Remember the part in my “About the Author” where I say that one of my hobbies is performing in amateur musicals? That’s what I’ve been doing. My church staged a production of “Mary Poppins,” and my whole family took part. I played Miss Smythe, the bank chairman’s secretary, as wells as singing in the chorus. It was lots of fun and lots of work, and we’re all happy and exhausted. Gareth and Bethany both go back to school next week, so I’ll be back to writing full time. I’ve gotContinue Reading

Weekly Update

Hi, all. Sorry for the irregularity of the updates lately. Summer is in full swing and my schedule is crazy, with lots of travel, events, and activities for all the members of my family. The Tale of Gurion Thricebound is out and available for you to buy or borrow. I hope you give it a try; it’s got some of my favorite characters and story arcs that I’ve written. It covers a lot of territory. I considered breaking it into four books, because it’s made up of four distinct parts, each of which could have stood on it’s own withContinue Reading

Weekly Update

Sorry I missed writing an update last week. I’m busy getting settled into the summer (lack of) routine. My family is involved in a production of the musical Mary Poppins at our church, which is going to take lots of time for rehearsals and set construction. And next week we’ll be leaving for our annual vacation to visit my parents in South Carolina. Before that, this weekend I’ll be a guest at Comicpalooza, Houston’s big comics/science fiction/fantasy con. I’m going to be speaking on three panels, at 11:30 am and 2:30 pm on Friday, and at 7:00 pm on Saturday.Continue Reading

Tuesday Update

I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day long weekend. I’ve got the comments on Gurion Thricebound back from my beta reader, so this week will be devoted to making revisions. This will be the last pass before I send it off to Createspace and get a proof copy, which I’ll use for the proofreading pass. I really hope to have it ready to release at the beginning of July, so I can include it in Patty’s July promo. Her promo back in September helped Fuller’s Apprentice get off to a terrific start, and I’m hoping to do something similarContinue Reading

Monday Update

Into the Storm is off for beta. I’m working on various bits and pieces of things while I’m waiting on Gurion Thricebound stuff to come back. I ordered two new maps but haven’t heard back from my artist yet. Haven’t yet heard from my cover artist either. I’ll need to touch base with both of them and make sure it will all be ready on time. I’m kind of frustrated with Hero’s Journey right now. It’s such a good story, but it’s got a few problems I know are there but I haven’t figured out how to fix. And there’sContinue Reading

Monday Update

I’m going to start doing my Monday Updates here on my blog, then sharing them to Facebook, instead of posting them to Facebook directly. We’ll see how that works. Last week and this week have been a little crazy, because we’ve been getting painting and tile work done on our house. It’s looking great, but there have been workers in and out all the time, and access to the kitchen and living room have been cut off at various times. I leave the house to write anyway, so it hasn’t completely disrupted my work, but I’ll be glad when theyContinue Reading

Excerpt from The Fuller’s Apprentice

Chapter One Master Sef stretched the wet woolen cloth to its full extent. He walked his fist, thumb and little finger spread wide, across the fabric from one selvage to the other, measuring its width. “It’s coming along well. Give it another five hundred strokes, lad, then come fetch me.” He scowled at Josiah. “And mind you don’t go off into one of your dreaming fits. There’s a representative of the Wizards’ Guild coming to check on their order, and we need to show him our best work—not cloth beat full of holes because a lazy apprentice couldn’t keep hisContinue Reading
