When you have a pet, you have a companion, someone you love almost like your own children (and for some people, they are their children). Part of being a responsible pet owner is knowing that you may have to make a decision that no parent should ever have to make for their flesh and blood children: when to put them to sleep if their quality...

always a tough decision to make.  he'll be missed.

@wizard0 yes it is, and yes he will be

So, last week a local book club (that's part of a girl geeky group that my ex-wife and her sister belong to) had bought my 1st book, Arcanist's Lament, and they asked if I could come down and do a reading for their monthly meeting and to answer any questions they had. Of course I said yes, because that sounded amazing! It would...

@kingbeardsley thank you, I hope you like it!

Posted this on my FB page this morning, wanted to share it here. And, if this offends anyone, I'm sorry you got offended but not sorry I said it. Here goes:

If one of the main reasons you are voting for a candidate is their gender (regardless if you share that gender or not), that is just as shallow as voting for a candidate...

@ainoa thank you, my dear! xoxo

So, as many of you know, I finished my detective novel and was shopping it around to agents and publishers. Not that I'm not proud of my other series that I self-publish (Arcanist's Lament and Invoking the Fallout, available everywhere), but this book (and series, hopefully) is more adult in tone and I feel that having a publisher would really help me get...

I find this whole process fascinating...
sheashannara:
@griffxx thank you! I've found that not a lot of authors and writers actually tell all what pitching a book entails; or, if they do, they try to emphasize the positive and not give an accurate description of all the negatives...

So, I've been a member of SG since '09, and I know they've done this in the past, so I had a thought: what if they did 2 Sets of the Day? One in the morning, one in the evening. And, if they did, would you be willing to pay a small bit extra for your membership? I believe it is $48 for...

As a hopeful, that sounds really cool to give more people a chance of making the front page. Of course there's more work in choosing and then it would mean paying more to the girls who get SOTD as they are compensated. Great idea, I'm for it!
sheashannara:
@soraleia thank you! I wouldn't mind paying a little more each month to help get more sets bought :)

I know that religion and politics are the two things you aren't supposed to bring up at a dinner party or in polite conversation, but I've always enjoyed thumbing my nose at things like that. It should be fairly obvious from my blogs which way I lean, but if it isn't I just want to say that I am a very liberal...

@ainoa thank you so much, my dear! xo

I am so happy that I finally got my 2nd book out! It's the sequel to Arcanist's Lament and it's called Invoking the Fallout. I'm going to list the places it can be bought, either as an e-novel or as a physical copy. So far, I have sold 50 copies of my 1st novel; while that may not seem like a...
