Karma’s a Witch Update ( As promised )


I promised I’d update y’all about Karma’s a Witch at the end of February, and since it’s the end of February… Here we go! Karma is nearly finished, like, 92% done, with about a chapter’s worth of words left to write. I tend to write scenes out of order or have to add stuff in, so that requires a lot of time to transition the scenes together so they make sense. And that makes it … Read more…

Update: Karma’s a Witch


I posted this on my Facebook page, but I’m putting it here, too, for those who may not follow me on FB or who may not have seen the update.

I didn’t want to back out because I agreed to do it and I loved the idea behind … Read more…

Weird Emails


I’ve gotten a few emails from people saying they’re getting unreadable emails from me. If you’re among those people, then I’m sincerely sorry. I promise I have not sent any out. The only possible explanation for this that I can think of is that people signed up to receive notifications from my website/blog. My site was redone yesterday, which meant updating pages to get things to work properly. Also, I just remembered that I imported … Read more…

The Dreaded Update


So, I’ve been dreading writing this, mostly because it comes with nothing but not-so-great news, which I hate to give. Off and on for the last year, I’ve been really sick and having major issues with my hands (where they hurt so bad I can’t even lift a paper plate). A few months ago–around the time I vanished–things got even worse. I was sleeping close to 16 hours a day–if not more–and I’ve been to … Read more…

Release Day: Breed of Havoc!


It’s here, y’all! Breed of Havoc has (finally!) released. I had a lot of stuff going on this past year (health issues, the death of my cat, moving, etc) that played a big part in its delay, but I also had to rewrite entire sections of the book a few times. In general, the plots are really intricate and complicated, so I can’t rush what I’m writing. Plus, if you’ve read any of the books, … Read more…

A Call To Arms


Some people have this idea that their way of publishing is the *only* way to publish. Some think it’s indie/self-publishing, some think it’s with a traditional publisher (the Big 5 New York pubs), and some think it’s e-publishing. I’m tired of seeing authors bashed–mostly by other authors–for choosing to self-publish, or for choosing not to. I’ve seen some bashed for turning down contracts, some bashed for not turning down contracts. It’s a vicious cycle. Honestly, … Read more…

Where is Lanie?


Okay, this is gonna be a long post, so I just want to warn y’all up front. First, I haven’t been on any social networks in eons it seems, and some of you may have noticed my absence. *cough* I want to apologize. For the last few months, I’ve been really run down (like, sleep 18 hours a day run down) and generally crappy feeling. That’s why I haven’t been on. I’m not ignoring anyone. … Read more…
