I made the trip to Boise today to visit with my writer friend, Merri Halma, who I'm narrating the first book in her Indigo Travelers series. We had a preliminary visit to start getting her setup for putting her audiobook up and discussing the business of writing. I had fun. I hope she did too. … Continue reading Back from Boise
I thought I'd be finishing with the 2nd book in the trilogy this week, probably Sunday. Now, I kind of wonder if I'll actually make that deadline. Woosh! I can almost hear it now. No, it's not really as bad as it seems. I still could finish on Sunday. Part of it depends on what … Continue reading So close
I finished the cover for 1-800-Lok8 yesterday. I'm not going to show it yet, but I do hope to have it up for preorder soon. I have a few final decisions to make with it first. As soon as I get it ready for ordering, I'll post the cover here too. Words are flying on … Continue reading A good day
As predicted, the wind blew and it got cold. It was definitely a good day to spend in the recording booth. I recorded two chapters. Then while my son and I watched a movie, I mastered five tracks on the book bringing me to current on it. I still need to listen thought and take … Continue reading Recording day

So, I very much welcomed the break from Cirvel's novel in order to work on something else. In working on it yesterday, I really felt like I was just spinning … Continue reading Redrafted chapter
Sometimes human beings delight me. Sometimes. A couple weeks ago as Dawn was leaving the grocery store, I saw this on the side of a van. Of course I had to have her take a picture because it made me smile and I thought I'd share it. Did I forget to mention that it is … Continue reading Viking longship
I can't believe we're into August 2021! For me, it's been a strange, wonderful, busy year. Unbelievably. I thought I was going to be able to get back to recording audiobooks in June, but the weather until recently was so hot that it didn't happen. Things are finally cooling off, so I imagine that I'll … Continue reading August already?
Trust the process - an affirmation for telling stories even when the path doesn't make sense.
I keep having imaginary conversations with myself. I really hate that because it's such a time waster, which is not something I can afford right now. But, my mind keeps regurgitating things. Dumb primitive animal brain! Dumb things that I am forced to think about, things I want to say, things I don't know that … Continue reading Progress – March 4, 2019
It was suggested to me last week that one of the reasons I might have been feeling so tired was because of the weather. I forget how cloudy days have such an effect. I made it a point to let more sunlight into my office and that certainly did help. I also reminded myself that … Continue reading Progress – February 4, 2019
