I'm working on a story bible for my Ocooch series. If you're not familiar with the idea, a story bible is a file, document, or set of documents that store all the useful information you need for a series so you don't contradict yourself. What color are the best friend's eyes in book one? It … Continue reading Story Bible
You might have noticed that my blog has been, shall we say, 'light' on photos lately. This is because the camera that we got for our wedding in 2013 finally died. It's had problems for a long time now, but now it won't even stay on for more than a few seconds. I'd been using … Continue reading Pragmatic Gifts
No post today because at the time I SHOULD be posting, I will instead be in church. My church is less than a block from my house, so that's no big deal. I just walk over, and my husband stays home to watch Tundra. My family always opens our presents on Christmas Eve though, which … Continue reading Merry Christmas, Ya’ll!
When I published my first novel, I didn't have the money, after all the $3000+ in expenses, to hire a content editor, so I muddled along with beta readers and a proof reader. This was a mistake.

I have to travel for an MRI today, so there's not much post to be had. See you on Monday~! *smile*
No, this is not gluten free bread. Instead, this is me testing my End of the World supplies. Like, if you're storing them? Please check to make sure you know how to use them or they're useless to you in an emergency! In this case I have wheat berries and a wheat grinder. So I … Continue reading I Made Bread!
I've mentioned before that I went manic during the earlier part of the year and spent a ton of money rapidly. I haven't had a manic spell like this for almost ten years, so it was MORTIFYING. What I didn't say is that to keep us afloat I pilfered from our quarterly taxes. I didn't … Continue reading Tax Estimates
I loved the cover for book two SO much, and it was done by a different artist than book one, even though its the same studio. Here is a cut from it: So, for marketing materials I commissioned the same artist to do character portraits of the love interests. Can you guess who? It's Hakon! … Continue reading Character Artwork
I need a logo incorporating my initials for some marketing materials, and my friends have been helping out. The initial idea because I like hedgehogs (and act like a hedgehog): My rework: Which works out perfectly because I already draw a hedgehog like this on my business cards. The plan is to get the logo … Continue reading Logo Ideas
