cynwritetalkI’ve been woefully inadequate about posting lately, but I’ve been doing the EDJ, taking workshops, taking care of my health and trying to write. The hardest part of it all is that with everything coming and going– I’ve been like a crazy woman– losing my mind and trying not to slip into depression. So much has been happening on the non-writing front, I’ve not wanted to bother anyone with my problems. But I have been having some wonderful creative moments where I’ve been worldbuilding– which I love and adore. (more…)

Flash Fiction– Ah! It’s so wondrous! *grins* Sorry, having a Flashback to Flash Gordon, the movie.  😆 But that’s one of the things I want to talk to you– the readers about– flash fiction. This is all about your wants and needs. I’m taking requests. :gasps and shouts of happiness fill the internet universe: What does this mean for you? (more…)

Wow. Summer is coming to an end. Fall is arriving with a whoosh and a bang! I’m working on my next stories and I forget the passage of time. It’s like a sunset at the end of the day. It’s a beautiful time, one for reflection and for taking a deep breath to let out all the accumulated stress of the day. For me, it means reviewing all the things I’ve done this summer and seeing what’s up and coming for the fall. What it also means is that I’m part of the BTS emag’s Sunset on Summer Fun Blog Hop. This is going to be so much fun. There are contests, authors to learn about and so much fun to enjoy! So come on and let’s get started!  (more…)

It’s out! It’s out! Happy days it’s out! *grins* I’ve been so busy with Pirate Queen’s Rebellion (it’s so done!) that I hadn’t had time to post this– but Call of the Wylde, second book in the Marauder series is out! That’s right, it’s out and ready for your enjoyment! The lovely Scott Carpenter did the cover for the second book and I love it! Plus, for this holiday– the price for Mark of the Blood has dropped to 99¢. That price will hold until July 15th. After that, it goes back up to $2.99. So, if you’ve been waiting to pick up MOTB and Call of the Wylde, now’s the time to do it!  (more…)

So, it’s time for the midweek update. I’m rocking and rolling so far. I’ve done over 22k in my writing. Some of it is cut and paste from the flat writing I did for prep work, but then I had to edit it and bring it all together with new stuff. Which means old stuff was about 10k, new stuff was 12k. I’m feeling quite pleased for the moment. I’m an epilogue away from having PQR finished! Then it’s off to something new!  (more…)
