As not to bring more attention to what became (yet another) unintentional mess in the blogosphere, I won’t say any names.

from Canto V
I was a wild and wayward boy,
My childhood scorned each childish toy;
Retired from all, reserved and coy,
To musing prone,
I wooed my solitary joy,
My Harp alone.
My youth, with bold Ambition's mood,
Despised the humble stream and wood

Today's question comes from Melissa Johnston-Sauro, she asked: "What is taking book 3 so long?"

When I started telling people I landed a book deal, most were shocked. For right or for wrong, I’d been pretty quiet about my writing endeavors. Other than close friends and family members, no one really knew I was anything other than a number-cruncher. The first question was always: “you wrote a...Read more of this blog post »

Newbie teachers are so quick to give veterans the "great teacher" label. They often hand it out as thoughtlessly as doctors, passing out stickers to toddlers after their yearly well visits.
A new teacher, whom I'm very close to, was preparing for her second year in the profession. In a recent con... Read more of this blog post »

Some unshaven thoughts on reading including, but not limited to: my book, attention, disconnection, imagination, growth, and time. It’s not as serious as it sounds, but six times more interesting. Enjoy.
Heartbroken. This is one of the on-going inspirations for my Crossroad Cafe novellas. A wonderful small town mountain pub. Shenanigan’s, in Dahlonega, GA.

…read the Outlander would you too?
In order to better understand this post, you probably need to know that there are certain kinds of books I don’t really care for. These are:
*ghost love stories (though there are two that I love in this genre***)

When I sat down to write my first novel, not once did I think I would be where I am today! At that time, I wanted to prove to myself, and to my family, that I could finish writingonebook. I wasn’t sure what would come of that book and there were many times I wondered why it was so important to pr...Read more of this blog post »

Sometimes, you just need to unplug. I’m going to be off Tumblr, Twitter and (mostly) email from Friday through Sunday while I go to London, see Les Miserables, and finally watch the Veronica Mars movie. Please forgive me if I’m a bit slow to reply to things til Monday!

Yep, that’s a printed test proof of Keepers of Arden. I might be a tad excited. I screamed when I opened it, so… yeah, I’m excited. I’m in the process of reading it again, going through each page to make sure there’s nothing wrong in the formatting, but so far, so good. Hopefully, by the end of...Read more of this blog post »
