Today I’m working on editing my best friend’s book for Crescent Moon Press. Then I’m back to outlining Sword & Incantation, the sequel to Sword & Illusion. Tonight is Rowdy Night, so that’ll be fun as it always is. I hope to get some actual words written instead of just outlining. Hope you all are …
Noah’s assignment for religion class is to bring a picture of something he idolizes. He chose this: My son is a geek!
We got back from Ohio last night. It was a nice trip to see my brother and his wife. It was also nice to sleep in my own bed. However, I woke up several times with my mouth very dry. I told Steve this morning that we need a humidifier and he said he thinks, …
Happy Christmas Eve, my darlings! This morning I am trying to get a handle on all my cross stitch supplies so my dining room can be used this evening. Cookies will be baked today. Presents will be wrapped. We will go to the 4 pm Vigil Mass then all the Brandts in a 2 mile …

Today’s Teaser is going to be short because I got the proofs back for Sword & Illusion (YAY!), my mother-in-law and I are headed to a spa for two hours of wrapping/detox (I’ve never done this before so it should be interesting), and I need to get ready to head to Deep South Con in …
Another week has gone by and I didn’t blog as extensively as I’d hoped. — I was up at Weight Watchers but down over the last four weeks, so I’m keeping on. I need to track more consistently and I considered how I would help myself. Visualization is one thing I’m working on, plus I …
—Well, Sword & Illusion was supposed to be released yesterday, but we were having some cover issues. Mainly, we didn’t get the cover art form until just last week, and Steve had some problems with the cover they originally sent. I kinda did, too, but I’m not as visual as he is, so I wasn’t …
I am so sorry i haven’t posted anything this this week. Life, and illness, got in my way. — We had a graduation party for my daughter on Saturday. My sister-in-law made this awesome cake for it. — Sunday we just hung out and I got to see a friend at Mass who is soon …
