That way, if one comes to a wall, I can plug away at the other until the inspiration comes back. Sometimes I just have to shake things up a bit.

Also reading. Reading is always an answer.(less)

2 with betas, 2 more on deck

Both Letters from a Middle-Aged Ninja and Shelley on the Edge of Wonder are with beta readers, so I'm waiting for their feedback to guesstimate release dates. The first is a series of life lessons gleaned from my years in martial arts, and the second is a biography of my mother's travels in the 1950s. I anticipate both will be released before mid September.

Super clever premise. An expert ghost is coming in to help out a struggling haunt scare his mark. But disorganized artist types are not easy to rattle. Very charming and funny. It would make an adorable Halloween short film.

I'll say straight up that Valerie Howard is my favorite indie Christian author, hands down. Her stories tackle hard subjects and characters with deep wounds, but she handles it so tastefully. PICKING DAISY is no exception. DJ is an orphaned girl in t ...more

“Looney was humming a daffy tune in between loud snores, and Smarmy seemed to be practicing his grin.”
Lia London, Saccharine White

“Jane looked up at her friend and smiled. “You are a genius! Now rinse and spit.” She dove into the water. “I gotta go see a man about a horse.”
Lia London, Stormy Jane and the Damsel in Distress

“And the kingdom was very peaceful indeed. This, however, was not due to any brilliant reigning philosophy constructed by her father, King Abnegolde, or any skill he had in creating a functional bicameral legislative body made up of representatives from the peasant farmers', blacksmiths', woodcutters' or millers' guilds.”
Lia London, Of Mice and Momphibraks
