Just a shitload of news

Wow – what a week. If you’re on the homepage of this blog, you can see the post below was an announcement for my annual open house at Simple Schooling, which is the subscription website I run for homeschoolers. Before I wrote fiction, I wrote non-fiction. A lot of non-fiction. Anyway, I have two huge promotions each year. In May I run a week long open house where I let anyone come on the website and sample ten of my […]

A Writer’s Life for Me

I’ve been a writer, at least half-time, since 2008.  Wow – time really flies.  It was October 2008, to be exact, so roughly about four and a half years now.  And if there’s one thing I’ll say about writing for a living, it’s that it’s a lot of freaking hours.  Your butt has to be in that chair for like – every waking minute, almost.

I […]

Clutch and Fledge on Amazon

The only other things to report right now are the new promo graphics I made last night.  (See […]

Friday Productivity and a Snake

Well, holy crap!  It’s Friday again!  What did I get done this week… I did an inspection for work yesterday and attended a meeting.

Really great book. I’m about to read it again.  First I borrowed it from Amazon using my Prime account, […]
