December 2008


I always wondered how they made snow cones.

Wherever you are, and however you celebrate the season, have a wonderful holiday!

The paperback!

My book, Heart of Hythea, is up on Amazon in the paperback edition!   🙂

If any of you lovely people have read it, or even if you haven’t and want to be nice, could you visit the page and leave a review?  I’ll be ever so grateful…

Just like the economy, my word counter has gone nowhere this week.  Not really due to lack of story (negative inspiration?) but rather to having the kitchen counters redone and the addition of a new freestanding gas/electric cooker.  (Made by Smeg…)

The holidays are here but I would like to think I’ll still be able to do a little writing.  Maybe I’ll cut my goal back to 500 words a day.

I’ve been trying a running program called Couch to 5k.  I’m on week 3.  So far its been OK.  I wasn’t exactly a couch potato when I started because DH and I walk two miles most every evening, but running is definitely harder.  I have a fantastic podcast to help me get through it.  It tells you exactly when to run and when to walk, along with some really great music!

I have to confess this is all because of my 50th birthday, coming up in March 2009.  I have three goals:

1. Get back down to the weight that is listed on my driver’s license (135lbs.)  I have ten pounds to go.

2. Do ten proper push-ups.  Right now I can’t even do one, *sigh.

3. Finish the C25K program.

Now I have told the world I’ll have to be really motivated.

My book, Ketha’s Daughter, is up for book of the week on Long and Short, so if you have a moment please vote for me!

Here is the link.

Ketha’s Daughter has been reviewed by Long and Short.  I wish they had given it to the same person who read Heart of  Hythea, because it sounds as though the reviewer had a tough time getting up to speed.  Still, it’s a pretty good review.  Have a look here.

One of the main characters of Sons of the Mariner, Jakob Faircrow, has been interviewed by Pat Bertram.
