Fans of the rock group My Chemical Romance know what can be deeply moving and scary about loving someone with Cancer. Streetlight Manifesto’s As the Footsteps Die Out Forever Ever made me cry. Garage Band Nirvana covered the issue in Heart-Shaped Box. Tumblr has a list of great songs and the reasons behind them when known. Read the rest of this entry »

Many people who know my husband and I are slightly envious of the relationship we share. We love each other and share a sense of humor. However, sometimes I think I have too much of a good thing. Mike is very affectionate and loves to touch me. When I am using a sharp knife to cut things up. When I am hurrying to finish something because of reasons. And when I have turned out my light at night because I am sleepy. Nothing wakes me up again like a loving man who wants kisses. Poor me! Read the rest of this entry »

I can’t steal the slogan, Finish the Damn Book, because that is a Cherry Adair thing. Good news, you can even join in on Facebook! Really cool, huh? Well, as long as you are going to finish the damn book. And keep popping in to update your goals. See, you do need to actually do something here. https://www.facebook.com/groups/CherryFTDB/ Read the rest of this entry »

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know how much I love my local chapter of Romance Writers of America. You may also know that I won NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) for 2016. That just means I finished my novel on time. But it also means I signed up for information on meet-ups in my area. Read the rest of this entry »

Last time, I shared my notes and lots of fun things that came up when I listened to Best-Selling Author Bob Mayer speak in April of 2017. You can find that here. Now I’m going to jump right back in where I left off. Read the rest of this entry »

I didn’t think I would ever run out of things from the CalDreaming Conference to write about. I probably still have notes to transcribe from the RWA National Convention last year. But here I am looking at my notes and I think it’s time to share Mr. Mayer with you. Read the rest of this entry »

*You’re mileage may vary.

I am bragging again. My chapter of Romance Writers of America is The BOMB! We get the best speakers, the best programs, we help with the best covfefes, and we have a HIGH percentage of published writers, like 77%.** Just last month, May of 2017, we were presented with a workshop by Carina Press’s Editorial Director Angela James! She has an amazing workshop on self-editing called Before You Hit Send. . . . This blog goes up on June 4th so you will have to act NOW to register for her class that starts June 5th and goes through the 30th of June. Hurry, do it! The class notes are already up. Oh, here’s the link.

I’m cheating. I need to get this information all in one place so that I can update my About Me page on this blog. And in the meantime, I can share my intimate details with you. No, no, not THOSE intimate details. Just because I write smut doesn’t mean I want everyone to know my personal preferences. No, I am saving those for my memoirs. Read the rest of this entry »

A healthy life often means watching a lot of numbers. You count calories, you get blood work done for you A1C levels, your blood pressure must be watched, your weight, your miles, and steps walked or run. The cardio minutes when your heart rate elevated, your age, your salt intake in grams. Your daily blood sugar levels, pre and postprandial. Read the rest of this entry »

Okay, so a single book doesn’t equal a classic series sparked by a marvelous tale and inspiring many other enjoyable stories. My point is, should you want to know, I totally feel your pain when the books are turned into movies. And they had to cut so much from the actual written story. So very harsh!
