"Times past count I done the Tell. But it weren't me that tumbled Walker. It was Savannah. So it's only right that she take the Tell." "This ain't one body's story. It's the story of us all. We got it mouth-to-mouth. You got to listen it and 'member.'Cause what you hears today you got to tell the birthed tomorrow. I'm looking behind us now. . . across the count of time. . .down the long haul, into history back. I sees the end what were the start. It's Pox-Eclipse, full of pain! . . . but some had got the luck, and it leads them here. . . Time counts and keeps counting. And they does the pictures so they'd'member all the knowing that they lost. 'Member this?" (dialog excerpt from 'The tell of Captain Walker; Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.) 'Member when I said I was so excited I could hardly wait to share? 30 Days
Well, today I get to share! WOOHOO!
The countdown is ticking towards hitting my 500th post! Can you believe it? Wow! That seems nearly impossible. This is a good example though of how a little each day adds up. Which is a good lesson to keep in mind for the overwhelming task of making a full-length

Penned Con is coming up as well, September 23rd and 24th. I wanted to have something new, something fresh. Many of you know that I have multiple irons in the fire. First, I had to decide which project I was going to focus on. Valkyrie’s Curse was waiting to be read by Eclectic Bard Books. As I had listed that as the next book to follow Red Wine & Roses, I had to focus on that one. I am not good at waiting.
So . . . news on that front, as of November 18, 2016 I will no longer be with Eclectic Bard Books.
What does that mean?
First off, all rights to Red Wine & Roses will revert to me on that date. Eclectic Bard Books has relinquished their first rights to any of my future work as of November 18, 2016. Valkyrie’s is mine. Kiss of the Dragon is mine. Faere Warrior is MINE!
Secondly, I wanted to do something to benefit Action for Autism, the charitable organization that Penned Con supports. After much urging on my husband’s part and encouragement from several others, I took their strong urgings to pursue this project, which is more like the opinion column I used to write for the local newspaper, Suburban Journal. Apparently, there are some people that appreciate my delicate sense of smartassness. My sagacious wit is what landed me the gig on the column years ago, and seems to be one of the reasons that many come back to read my posts on here.
Sometimes our talents take is in a different direction than what we intend. I envisioned myself as writing a series of romance novels but my writing is less about romance and more about other things.
So here it is . . . . drumroll . . .
