Eclipse Pictures and A Giveaway of The Lord of Dreams!  

Good morning! How are you? It has finally cooled off here. We recently returned from a week visiting my husband’s family in South Carolina, which was wonderful! His parents just moved to a new house with a swimming pool, so we enjoyed that every day with our nieces. And of course, we got to see the total eclipse! Unfortunately, the pictures I managed to get with my phone were less than impressive, so the best one I have is this one, taken by my sister-in-law at her house. The eclipse wasn’t total yet, but it was getting close!   Luminous: […]


Release Week for Luminous!

How are you? It has been so hot here that my stargazer lilies burned and browned. A few weeks ago we had a birthday party for my daughter, who turned six, and enjoyed a 75 foot slip-n-slide in our backyard! The weather was hot and the yellow jackets stayed away. It was a wonderful time. Yesterday was release day for Luminous! Luminous: A Noblebright Fantasy Boxed Set This is a fantastic boxed set (ebook only) of ten noblebright fantasy novels.

Still Waters – the first anthology by Spring Song Press!

I’m excited to announce the first project under my new publishing name, Spring Song Press. I’m putting together an anthology of clean noblebright fantasy short fiction titled Still Waters. This is a “traditional” anthology rather than a cooperative marketing effort among indie authors, so I’m paying the authors upfront for the right to publish their work. I’ve currently budgeted a minimal payment to authors, but I’d like to be able to both increase that payment and increase the number of stories I can include in the anthology, so I’ve started an Indiegogo campaign. This will basically be pre-sales – in return […]

What I’m Reading #9 5

These are some of the books I’ve been reading lately. What have you been reading? The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman – As magnificent and creative and marvelous as one would expect from Neil Gaiman. I loved it… it was dark but also filled with beauty and a thread of noblebrightness. I read an ebook borrowed from my library, but I would like to get this one in print for my library. I love the cover, and I love the title. A brilliantly imaginative and poignant fairy tale from the modern master of wonder and […]
