    A Writer’s Woes… Episode 11-11-2020

    Sigh… So, this is a difficult time for me for sure. So… After Destined, I experience a serious bout of burnout brought on by several forces. I’ve been renting for many years, and now, it’s time to become a homebuyer. As I get things together to do that, as a large part of buying a house is saving money, I have to live at my mom’s. But the thing is, I’m sort of confused about where I want to live–still. Like, STILL. I have a VR, and one of the environments is a futuristic city. I can hear the traffic and see the lights and cars riding on the air,…

    His Second Chance with Bryn Christmas Update!

    Here’s the deal. It’ll be nice to have one last book in the Christmas family series–no duet–just one book. The complete story has been written, and now I’m waiting for Crave and Destined to finish clearing proofing. Of course, I could speed up the process by contacting some reliable sources and paying for additional proofs. That just popped into my mind. I think I should do it. But you know what? There are two reasons why I write in trilogies or duets. First, to gain new readers by making the first book free. But, I don’t even know if that’s as effective as it used to be. Visibility is a hard…
