So I’ve been working hard lately. IRON BONES is uploaded and ready for release day. I have a summer sale coming up at the end of this week and I’ve been working on graphics and ads for that. And I’m writing CASTING CURSES–the 5th Maddy book. I wasn’t going to write another Maddy book till next year, but they write easily and quick, and I have another project I want to do before tackling the 5th Fury book, so need the time. Unfortunately, Maddy doesn’t sell as well as the others, but I do love writing her. We’ll see how this one goes. I think people are thinking Maddy’s a cozy and avoiding them–and TRUST ME–NOT A COZY. I don’t even use that word when talking about the series because it implies no sex, and there’s plenty of sex in the books. I’m ticked at my Dragon software right now though–it’s crashing on me again. It goes in spurts. So I’m typing again and my hands get tired but I’m not really playing any games right now, and I’m trying to avoid surfing the net.
The heat has been kicking my ass lately. I don’t like heat anyway, but it triggers histamine reactions and yeah, I’ve been having them. I hide in the house all day (thank gods we have AC). But even too much light can trigger a histamine dump in my system. Bleh.
I realized the other day that I’ve started buying more books on Kindle because I can adjust the font size and see better. My vision’s not that bad but I try to avoid eyestrain because it can trigger migraines and that, I do not need. So I’ve actually switched over to mostly reading e-books now, and I’m okay with that. (No rants about BUT I LOVE PRINT BOOKS, please. I love them too, and I love the smell, but I don’t have much room for more physical books and it’s a lot cheaper to buy e-books and the font size adjustment helps my eyesight, which helps me write books for you, so for today, we’re spreading the love of e-books!
On another note, yesterday I made my corn dolly for the year and she’ll be guarding the house through next year. It’s a ritual/tradition for me, and I taught it to my niece, (who is close to my age, actually), and another friend came over so we had a lovely afternoon. I’ll post a picture on Instagram soon!
Have a lovely Monday, and watch for my sale this week!

I LOVE Maddy!! So far out of your indie books she is my abso favorite. That is until I sat down the other day and read the first two books of Ember’s. Now it’s a definite tie.. lol
Sorry to hear that the Maddy books don’t sell as well as your other books. I love them, but then I love most anything you write. You have a real way with words & telling stories I can get lost in. I can’t fault you for switching to ebooks. I love my Kindle because it is easier to hold than print books and because I can actually read it without my glasses. Age & health issues can change your reading preferences. Hope you continue to be well enough to write many more stories for us to enjoy.
I completely understand the health issues. I hope you have a feel good spot today at some point to give you some relief. By the way, Mr Loki says hello, I have no idea why he asked me to tell you but there it is, that silly kitty. I got excited when you said the other day you are releasing another Maddy book this year. As much as I love the sisters, I love Maddy, Fury and Ember even more.
I wanted to let you know that the Dragon software may have an update for that crashing problem but if not send them a message, they may have a fix. I know its not doing it a whole lot yet but don’t let it go too long, software that crashes has a tendency to get worse and that makes it annoying and annoying can make health annoyances worse. I’m also sending good vibes to help with the histamine intolerance. I hope you have a breather from it at some point even a small one.
Blessing from me to you and yours
Going to try again today. I updated my Windows last night and I’ve noticed, when my computer needs updating, Dragon crashes more. So we’ll see. Hi to your kitty!!
So sorry to hear your having health issues. I totally understand! I’ve been having really bad back problems with all the things going on with my workplace closings. Stressing about finding another job, how to pay bills, etc. I so want to get the Wild Hunt series but not financially able to right now. Love your books! I was hooked with Witchling immediately! Take care and blessings to you and Sam!!
I am so looking forward to Iron Bones!
I totally get the font thing on Kindle.
I don’t know why I fought so hard not to get mine. It seems so ridiculous now.
I love it. I don’t want to even think about not having it.
I would love to see how you made your corn baby.
Wishing you a Bright & Blessed week
I love books any way I can get em, ebooks, audiobooks, paper books, hardback, paperback just give me books!
