Ho Hum ...

Some more shimmering snow   Some more shiny ice   Some more slippery sleet   Ah, the sound of sliding tires in the night!   The plop of frozen birds falling from the feeder   The huge list of 2-hour school opening delays...

Me, as a Heroine? I think not.

Okay, this is the only time I ever rescued someone.  I was at a math contest in another school.  We had a break in the proceedings, so I was wandering around looking for a ladies' room.  I found one, way off the beaten track in a semi-dark hallway.  I...

So, How's Every Little Thing?

I'm in the middle of Chapter V on my new book.  This is Part I, so I'm wondering if I shoul just keep on numbering when I get to Part II (which will be soon) or start over at Chapter I.  I'm leaning toward starting over, because Lelah never meets her...

Still Waiting! (I seem to say that a lot.)

We started the publishing process for the book of short stories.  We picked a beautiful photo for the cover, and it was easy to do it ourselves.  However, the picture was an old one and not good enough quality, so we chose one of their pictures and...

So now it's 2015 - Woo Hoo!

I figured out how to see how many books I've sold altogether.  Now I'm really depressed.  I've sold 37 of the first book and 15 of the second.  That means that not even half the people who read the first book were interested enough in my poor heroine...
