RWA– Romance Writers of America is an outstanding organization for writers of any type. Yes, they are slanted toward us romance writers, but there’s a good reason for that. I’ll share that story another time. Today I want to give you an overview of the recent conference in March put on by four local RWA chapters in Brea, California. I’ll share more details on the panels in future posts. Read the rest of this entry »

Decades past, I had my first chance to go to a convention. The event took place in Los Angeles and was put on by the Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Horror Association. My friends were going with me to see some of our Star Trek favorites. Also, Christopher Lee was going to be there. I was so excited. Read the rest of this entry »

Being hooked on webcomics over the years, I love one unique strip called Unshelved. The comic is set in a library, features library staff as the main characters plus a teen who keeps trying to sneak adult books out. The writer and artist, Gene Ambaum and Bill Barnes, continuously roll with typical library situations and hilarious coping skills. They used to hold a Pimp My Book Cart event every year. http://www.unshelved.com/031917 comic con floor Read the rest of this entry »

You possibly recognize that title as a song by Leslie and the Ly’s  about zombies. It’s on a playlist in the car so I hear it a few times a week. For the last few days, that song has been an earworm but luckily one I enjoy. Then it hit me. Read the rest of this entry »

Happy mid-March! I am relieved to know that Spring is just a week and a day away. This winter was particularly hard, so more sunlight is exactly what I need. And today we set the clocks back. Don’t like losing that hour but glad to have the sun hang around a bit. Read the rest of this entry »

Last time, I looked at the history of servants, which is tied closely to slavery. Not just in the southern states of the USA, but all over the world. Today, I want to look specifically at the Regency and Victorian servants. Very little changed for the serving class between those eras.

A recurring theme among writers today is finding the time to balance between life and writing. Honestly, if we could find a workable solution to that problem, more books would get to readers every day. And fewer writers would give up the struggle to do it all. Read the rest of this entry »

Usually, I am the least spontaneous person you could find. No one is less spontaneous than I am. I plan all my activities as far in advance as I can and usually know what I am doing for the whole day by the time I go to bed the night before. If I wake up in the night, I usually run over my plans for the morning and day ahead of me. Read the rest of this entry »

Every trip to the doctor or even the dentist will involve meters and measurements to tell how healthy you are. Your temperature might be taken, your blood pressure checked, reaction time on joints, even hand strength is used to get a full picture. Those clues along with a blood panel will be used to determine where you are in a health matrix. Read the rest of this entry »
