There was so much fun to be had and lots of learning. The first two days were writer-focused, especially for those who were aspiring authors. Established authors, like J.M. Madden, Holly Roberts, Sharon Hamilton, Teresa Gabelman, S.E. Smith and more shared their thoughts, ideas and things they did that helped them along the way. Most of it I knew but it's always good to receive affirmation and a few good lucks from those making their way.
Here I am getting all tied up at the BDSM showcase. Yeah, taking one for the team lol!!
Eve just couldn't get close to Hilde's real thing :-)
Hallee Bridgeman and I sponsored, the Fall into Sweet Romance event (not as Rayven Godchild of course lol!!!) there were sweets, treats and excellent prizes, including a brand new Kindle Fire HD.

Have you been to any conventions lately, whether as a reader or an author? How was your experience?

It's my pleasure to host authors at my blogspot. Having read Charlie Holmberg's work before - and hosted her here as well - I'm glad to say that she's returned to share her writing finesse with me, erm, us once again. So here's to Charlie and...

Welcome to Settler, Oregon, where the living is, well, the living is worth checking out in...
Here's a taste
Revenge had a ring to it. Maybe the thing in his head was his guardian angel. What else could have resurrected him from the grave?

Perseverance, people, is a we-can-do-this-stick-to-it thing that keeps pressing us forward, no matter the size of the step.
With perseverance, I completed my August 2014 goals:
- Finish second half of edits for MG story OUAS: Done, and goodness I really like this story
- Format Secret Lilies for kindle: Available now at Amazon
- Critiques for online crit group and a special crit for a friend: I'm so ready for my friend to finish work on the story because I really enjoyed it and want to get me copy as soon as possible. I'm looking forward to the next round of crits from my online group.
- Read and review story for a friend: Made sure to add review to Goodreads and Amazon
I don't get all green across the board all the time, but the rare time it happens is a bit of extra encouragement.
Last, but certainly not least, with perseverence, I participated in NaNoWriMo in the fall of 2011 and started on a story that led to more writing, rewriting, editing, editing some more, subbing and getting rejected a few times (I really enjoy the story as a personal read and almost self-published but something kept telling me to just keep swimming), editing some more then subbing to one place...
to get accepted at Evernight Teen Publishing.
BEACON, my YA dystopian/urban fantasy, will be coming soon to an e-retailer near you. More deets as they come.
So keep trying, and try again. Do what you feel is good for the soul and...just keep swimming.

About Secret Lilies
Some secrets are to die for.
At the ripe age of eighteen, Destiny thought she knew the joys and pains of love until she discovered the depths of her husband's debauchery the first night of their honeymoon.
Divorcing as quietly as possible, Destiny moved on with her life. Refusing to let bitterness blind her, she learned to let go and lucked out on the best thing ever, John Robertson: handsome, chivalrous and an insatiable lover.
But some things in the past don't know how to stay put.
When Destiny's ex-husband suddenly appears in her life, he not only sparks upheaval in her home, but his violent death adds to the chaos. Together, Destiny and John must unweave the web of secrets spinning their world out of control if they have any hope of something-like-normal...or die trying.
***I'm thrilled to bring this book back into a bit of spotlight...especially on my own terms. I have all of you to thank for your encouragement in making this happen. Much love!!!***
