I have made the switch – bye bye Blogger, hello WordPress. I love the clean look here, the ability to have pages with real links, the ease of use with widgets….

Hopefully it will make life easier. I’m not done tweaking (definitely want my own picture on the top) but I’m liking it!

I plan to update more frequently, moving forward. I have been swamped with forcing myself to edit (not my favorite thing), getting the various publishes done, actual paid day-job work, and the all important summer activity – swimming!

The book is out on Amazon and Smashwords. B&N is taking it’s own sweet, slow-as-molasses time, and the print version is nearly completed. Links for all soon to come. Two available at the BOOKS tab at the top of the page.

Book two is getting an outline and I will start actual words this week. I’m very excited to continue the story begun in book one.

The response so far has been very positive. It feels like a child is leaving home – you can’t shield it anymore and you probably screwed some things up, but you have to let it go and get on with things! (For example, the 2nd novel that is being outlined already 😉 )
