T Minus Ten Days and Counting…

So, the last seven days have been all hustle and bustle. Although the MFA residency doesn’t start until January 3rd, I will be traveling to London early to enjoy some much-needed relaxation time. We have, in fact, already secured our tickets to the Harry Potter Studio Tour, the Tower of London, the New Year’s Eve…

Long Lost Update

I know I start every blog post this way, but it’s been a while since I posted! Work has been screamingly busy, and I have been exhausted. I was fully and completely prepared to participate in NaNoWriMo 2014, but sadly, I only wrote 237 words total in November. Pathetic. That said, at least I can…

Review: Concerning the Bodyguard

I haven’t blogged about anything for a bit, mostly because work has been very busy lately. That, and I have been mentally preparing myself to begin revisions full-tilt on COMPENDIUM.

I didn’t even think I had the energy to write this post, but some dinner and decompression revived me somewhat. That said, consider this my…

Evolution of a Book Proposal

Thursday of last week, I finally turned my revised book proposal for my non-fiction privacy and data security book to the agent who I have been working with. It took me almost three weeks to make the revisions we discussed, including a new title. Behold, NAVIGATING THE BREACH is now ANTI-THEFT ARSENAL. Along with the new name,…

Camp NaNoWriMo

Because I had such a successful NaNoWriMo, and because I now have a new project on the horizon, I decided to take advantage of the Camp NaNoWriMo summer session and signed up to participate. I will be writing chapters for NAVIGATING THE BREACH (or whatever I rename it to) during April, rather than a novel. Camp NaNoWriMo…
