RIP Strigidae Publishing

2016-09-30T11:49:05-06:00September 30th, 2016|Publications, Warmaiden|

Strigidae Publishing Logo I announced my first novel-length publication contract back in April of this year. The contract was with Strigidae Publishing, and I'm sad to say that this is their last day of being in business. Yeah. They're closing their doors. It's because of some health problems [...]

2016-04-19T15:16:28-06:00April 19th, 2016|CSFWG, Pikes Peak Writers, Publications, Warmaiden, Warmistress, Warmother|

Wow. Where to start? Not from the beginning. That takes too long. This weekend was the 24th Pikes Peak Writers Conference. It went fantastic! I met loads of cool people. I made oodles of new friends. I attended quite a few excellent workshops. I met with editors, agents, authors, friends [...]

Wow. What a year. Ups. Downs. Even some sideways curves thrown in. I'm not going to go through every, gritty little detail and bore you to death. Here are some highlights of the year for me! The year started out with a bang as the government decided it wanted back taxes [...]

I'm not participating in NaNoWriMo this year. It's not because I don't believe in the process of encouraging writers. It's because I have different plans this year! I've decided to submit Warmaiden to one agent or editor each day in the month of November. I'm calling this National Novel Submission [...]

Warmaiden Revisions Done

2011-07-05T15:22:50-06:00June 15th, 2011|Warmaiden|

I've finished revising Warmaiden. I gave myself 10 days to do it and it only took a total of 6. I'm quite happy with myself. That gives me hope that once I get it in front of a willing agent/editor, I can do whatever changes they ask of me in [...]

Revisions of Warmaiden

2011-06-14T14:42:28-06:00June 14th, 2011|Warmaiden|

I'm working my way through the book again doing some touch ups and minor revisions (with some major work in places) to tighten up the prose before sending it through the CSFWG again. I started working on it last Thursday. Every spare moment that I've managed to grab has been [...]

Wordle for Warmaiden :: 2011-06-08

There's a great web site out there for writers called Wordle. You can upload your text, and it'll output a Java display that you can print or screen shot that will show you the density of the various words that you use. The larger the word in the image, the [...]

Partial Rejected

2010-09-17T00:33:20-06:00June 26th, 2010|Agents, Rejections, Warmaiden|

I've neglected my web site for the past two months and it shows. I have news about the partial that was requested by the agent: rejection. I'm not sure why it was rejected because all I received was a form letter with a customized apology for not being interested. I [...]

Partial Requested

2010-09-17T00:32:37-06:00April 24th, 2010|Agents, Pikes Peak Writers, Warmaiden|

I'm currently doing a massive happy dance (mostly internalized at the moment) because I met a great agent today. I pitched my book to her, and she readily jumped on the chance to see a partial submission (the first 30 pages) of my book, WARMAIDEN. I've learned quite a bit [...]
