Winners and Such

How did it get to be Tuesday?  How? How?????

Anyway the winner of my book club give away is:

Faith E. Hough!

Faith, you can email me at storyqueen@gmail.com and I'll ship them out to you ASAP.


Boy, time is really moving fast right now.  I am only working on two things right now in terms of writing, but I am having such a difficult time talking about them--and not because they are SEKRIT.  (I never write things that are sekrit because that particular spelling of the word secret really, really bugs me.  It just screams, "I know something that you don't know! Nanny, nanny boo boo!")    I have a difficult time talking about stuff I am working on because often when I say the words aloud, they sound stupid and then I lose faith in my project and have no desire to work on it anymore.  I usually just hem and haw around, trying to avoid the topic all together.  A few years ago (seems like yesterday!!) I would make myself write tag-lines and synopses for everything I was working on....I need to get back into that habit.  Badly.  It really helps me focus on the heart of the story.

Soooooo.....here we go

1.  A half-dog, half-dragon breathes fire into the life of a little girl who wants a cat.

2.    Some people do some stuff.....


Okay, well, one out of two isn't bad.  

Even though the first one isn't really specific enough, either.  It's not that it's sekrit....just that I haven't figured out what happens after the set up.  And I need to before I get much further, or it will stall out on its own.  I hate it when writing stalls out. It's an ugly and boring thing.

My next few weeks are jammed packed with stuff, mostly not writing, but I will be here:

Barnes and Noble
Tuesday, December 4th
4:30-8
Jefferson Bookfair
I have been promised lots of copies of lots of my books, so hopefully we won't run out this time!

Yes, Oreo will be there.  With oreos.  And maybe some door prizes of the holiday variety.....

From now on I'm going to take a tip from you and write those pitch lines from the start.
But first I have to get my life back. I seemed to have lost it somewhere...

Wow, thank you! I am so excited, and can't wait to share your story!
