new Cinderella series

I’ve been working on variations of the left cover for my new Cinderella series. Yesterday evening I happened to see that someone else had used the exact same stock image for their Cinderella book. Part of what’s funny is that I’d hated the “toilet paper stuck on the dress” look of the stock image and had been trying all sorts of things to hide that part of the dress. I guess not everyone had that same negative reaction to the train :). Ah well, the hurdles in the life of an author – time to start again! What are you guys working on today?

White House has blocked CNN

The White House has blocked CNN, LA Times, NY Times from a briefing; Breitbart was allowed in. This is the Twilight Zone. Also, Trump is pressuring news organizations to publicly print the names of ALL sources – he says unnamed sources shouldn’t be allowed. Because, you know, Nixon and “Deep Throat”.

morning yoga routine

I just finished my morning yoga routine – it was warm enough to do it on the back porch! In February in Massachusetts! This is insanity :). And I’m not even talking “a nip in the air” warm. I’m talking t-shirt and shorts weather. Time to send another round of emails to my reps. Sure, it’s nice for today – but it bodes very poorly for the planet as a whole, which I care about. #climatechange

Mused non-fiction

Today’s first all-day-long task is done :). All of the Mused non-fiction entries have been handled and the status letters have now been sent out! If you submitted a non-fiction piece to the Mused Literary Review, check your email :). Next up is fiction! Of course, when I lifted my head to breathe for a second I saw the transgender news and that was fairly depressing. But I have to shake that off and plow ahead!
