Prompt: I’m really interested in the Therian tattoos and the whole process of getting it. So maybe seeing Cael or Hobbs getting theirs.

Samhain Publishing and its horror imprint Samhain Horror have been extremely good to me.

So, courtesy of all...Read more of this blog post »

(Or, why I mostly don���t do that thing). I���m generally not a fan of little exercises for anyone, especially not delivered through this sort of medium.

But a writer is for life, not just for Christmas, so here’s my alternative list of things to buy for your writer any time of the year. The best bit is, they’re nice...Read more of this blog post »

When discussing book marketing, writers often debate free versus cheap versus charging what a book is worth. “What a book is worth” can be a moving target, depending on who you ask and when. Here are some factors… Read more of this blog post »
Can you believe that Christmas is only a hop-skip-n-a-jump away???
With the winter months upon us, I feel this is a great time for readers of all ages to snuggle in with a good book. I have been blessed with tons of amazing books titles for kids over these last few months and I want to get these...Read more of this blog post »

I have a confession: I love winter retreats.
Well, I love retreating any time of year, really, but by the time December rolls around I am a mess from Seasonal Affective Disorder. My Novembers are spent so busily and fastidiously managing winter depression — diet, exercise, keeping busy, waking up...Read more of this blog post »
Do you clap in church?
Perhaps I should clarify a little. Do you clap along to the music played in church? If you attend a charismatic church, you’d probably say, “Sure!” If you’re Episcopalian, more likely you’d answer, “Of course not.”

and salty blood
slips down my gullet
filling my belly with heat
