Is it YA or NA?

I guest blogged on author Rebecca Fyfe’s blog today about how to tell the different between YA and NA. I love the YA and NA genres. For those that don’t know, YA = Young Adult. NA = New Adult. NA is a fairly new genre and there are a lot of places where the two … Continue reading

Busy Spring!

Spring has sprung at our place! Things have been pretty busy around here since the beginning March. My middle son turned 16 (where did the time go?) on the first. Inara kidded twin bucklings on the second. So of course bottle feeding began. Kaylee kidded twin bucklings on the 7th in a rather difficult delivery … Continue reading

Fried Mushrooms

This recipe was requested after I posted the pic of them on Facebook. Fried mushrooms are an often requested treat here at my house.

Not able to offer Pre-Order

I got my ebook files for Unveiled finished. Went to KDP and uploaded everything, but it wouldn’t let me set the pre-order option.  It said I was ineligible to use that function.

Embracing a New Path in My Writing Journey

December brought a big change for my writing. At first I wasn’t sure it was a good thing. I soon realized, it was my early Christmas present from the universe.   For the past four years, I produced my books using a design company. A couple of weeks ago, I came to a diverging path. … Continue reading
