Janis Joplin – Maybe

Today’s Blues song for me is one that releases a lot of strong emotions when one sings it, cause you have to really belt it out. So it’s the song for me today. Can’t you feel her frustration and maybe even a little rage in there? No one ever did it like Janis. No one […]

Long Day….

Okay, it’s night again. I had a great day. Revised the synopsis for what will be book #50. How cool is that? I did a newsletter update that went out to all my email lists. Then I went for a run. Money came in the mail, today, always a nice thing. And unexpected money, at […]

You know it just hit

You know it just hit me that I’m having fun with this brief separation. Oh, I miss him like crazy, but finding musical blues gems by gifted women, and posting them and my thoughts here is enjoyable. I so love music–it’s like my life has a soundtrack to it, one that’s constantly running in my […]

Deadline Dementia

So I agreed to this insane series of deadlines, because the payoff was just too good to turn down. That being, that if I could write three suspense books in a row, back to back, in time, the publisher would release them in a row, back to back, in three consecutive months. Summer months, even! […]

Publishing Insanity

A major publisher has made headlines recently–not good ones. Layoffs, consolidations, good people with 50 years experience in publishing being put out of work. Times are hard, no question. So it was with some surprise that I read the latest buzz–that this same company has shelled out two million dollars for Kathy Griffin’s autobiography. Two […]

Why, Macy’s? Why?

So what is it with Macy’s anyway? Every time I go in, I see a pair of shoes I love. (I have these ones and they’re my favorites!) Usually, I’m walking by at a brisk pace, intent on getting to where I’m going and doing whatever errand sent me to the mall in the first […]
