Evening meditation time

Evening meditation time. I’ve just sent my new Cinderella book 1 out to my beta-readers. If you’re interested in seeing a copy, let me know. It took me quite a while (nearly two years) to craft a personality for Cinderella that I liked. I just wasn’t keen on her traditional passive way of being. I’m open to polishing ideas on the cover and especially on the subtitle and series name. Those are definitely works in progress :). #Namaste

Passively listening to a lecture

Passively listening to a lecture is about the Ninth Level of Hell for me. They often talk SOOOO SLOWWWLLYYYY that I am pulling my hair out in frustration. I would far rather read the transcript in about one-tenth the time and staying engaged with the topic. Do you prefer reading to gain information? Or do you enjoy sitting back and having someone talk to you?

Evening meditation time

Evening meditation time. I’m nearly done with book 1 in my fairy-tale Cinderella series. I’ve been rewriting this one for nearly two years now and am finally at a point where I’m reasonably happy with it. Originally I was following along the traditional story-line, but I just couldn’t embrace it. My heroine had to become more feisty – to not just wait passively for her prince to save her. #Namaste

BTW this castle is in Germany – my Mom and I visited it on a wonderful trip there. It’s not my photo, though, this is a stock image I have rights to :).

Aspen Allegations

Wow! Aspen Allegations is now #2 in Crime and I have no idea why. Is it being featured in a newsletter somewhere? Can those of you who get book newsletters take a look? I can’t find it on any I get, but this traffic is coming from somewhere … it’s perfect timing because I’m finally finishing up Dogwood Dilemmas to publish it today!
