It Really is the Thought that Counts — #MFRWauthor

Okay. It's been a while. I've been dealing with a nasty case of depression, but I think I'm back...or at least mostly back.¬† Anyway, welcome to week 19 of the Marketing for Romance Writers 52-Week Blog Challenge, most of which I've missed so far this year. This week's prompt is My Most Romantic Memory, which … Continue reading It Really is the Thought that Counts — #MFRWauthor

Things Only My Family Would Understand — #MFRWauthor Week 10

It's been a while since my last post. I had every intention of keeping up with this year's blog challenge and other things, too, but I just spent 2 1/2 months with my daughter and grandkids while my son-in-law was out of the country working, and the weeks just got away from me. I'm not … Continue reading Things Only My Family Would Understand — #MFRWauthor Week 10

My Biggest Accomplishments So Far — #MFRWauthor

Welcome to week #50 of the Marketing for Romance Writers 52-week blog challenge. Tis week's prompt is My Biggest Accomplishments, a theme that makes me say, "Ugh." As I mentioned in week 46.

Please Don’t Ask if I’m Ready for Christmas

We all know--or should know--that this is a difficult time of year for some people. We hear--or should hear--the advice to be sensitive to what others are going through. Unfortunately, ¬†even some people who dish out the advice sometimes inadvertently say something insensitive. It happens. Were only human, after all. We occasionally say the wrong … Continue reading Please Don’t Ask if I’m Ready for Christmas

When One Door Closes… #upbeatauthors

Back in 2008, my youngest daughter and her husband packed up everything they owned and moved from Utah, where we had all been living in close proximity to one another, to Florida, something like 25 gazillion miles away. They hadn't been married all that long, so my son-in-law was still something of an unknown commodity … Continue reading When One Door Closes… #upbeatauthors

The Woman Who Inspires Me Most–#MFRWauthor

Welcome to week 44 of the Marketing for Romance Writers 52-week blog challenge. This week's prompt is A Person That Inspires Me. I have to be honest with you--this one made me pause. At first glance, I don't have anything to write about this week. I don't consciously think about feeling inspired by another person...ever. … Continue reading The Woman Who Inspires Me Most–#MFRWauthor

You Should Never Be Too Busy To…#upbeatuthors

Happy Monday! It's the start of a brand-new week, and that means a new topic for #UpbeatAuthors. I've been staring at this week's topic for a while now, wondering what one thing I would pick to fill in the blank here. Over the years, I've met many writers who start volunteering in their local writer's … Continue reading You Should Never Be Too Busy To…#upbeatuthors

You Can’t Pour From an Empty Jar – #MFRWauthor

It's Friday again, and that puts us at Week 33 of the Marketing For Romance Authors 52-Week Blog Challenge. This week's prompt is What I Do To Recharge. It's a good topic, I think. As an adult human being, it's far too easy to burn the candle at both ends without fully recharging, Do that … Continue reading You Can’t Pour From an Empty Jar – #MFRWauthor

Pour. Drink. Repeat. #upbeatauthors

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I've joined a group of authors dedicated to sharing up messages on social media, and this week's theme is "one simple thing I can do to improve my health today." There are about a bazillion different things I could talk about on this topic, because almost anything … Continue reading Pour. Drink. Repeat. #upbeatauthors
