To E or not to E! That is the Question

I need your opinions, whether you read e-books or not. I have seven books that have long been out of print and I’ve now made four of them (Secret Lives, Reflection, Brass Ring and The Escape Artist) available as e-books. Very soon, I’ll have a fifth book up (Fire and Rain).  Now I’m trying to…

Taking a Break

After my last blog post, I know you probably think I’m all work and no play, so here’s proof that I do take some down time. I have to admit, this musical interlude came as a surprise to me. John is a very good guitarist but hasn’t been playing in a while (long enough to have…

Sneak Peek at the Keeper of the Light Cover!

I’ve been waiting for this one! Keeper of the Light has had a long history. It was my fourth novel, published way back in the early nineties and set in North Carolina’s Outer Banks. It sold zillions (slight exaggeration) and was definitely my most popular novel until The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes came along.…

My Readers are Ageless!

I’m always asked the question “What age group reads your books?”, and I always respond that I seem to have readers of all ages. Today, I present my proof! I recently heard from Sierra Dobbie, a young lady who lives in Ontario, Canada. She’d reviewed Before the Storm on her blog The Reading Chic and…

Do You Know Anyone with Rheumatoid Arthritis?

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. A while back, I heard from Healthination, Inc, asking me if I was interested in being featured in a series of educational videos they were creating about RA. I was honored to be asked, but I was not only dealing…

Winning Cover for The Escape Artist E-book

Thank you for all your votes! I tallied up the votes both here and on Facebook and this image is the clear winner with 34 votes.  Second place was the little boy peering over the woman’s shoulder (24), which I have to admit fits the book very well, but one reader mentioned that the little…

The Escape Artist Cover–One More Time

I’m still not happy with my concept for The Escape Artist’s E-book cover, so I hope you’re willing to vote one more time. I’m not going to bother with the text (my name and the title) until I make my final decision. Remember the book needs to stand out in a thumnail size on Amazon…

Stranded

My online friend, Kelly of Vancouver, was traveling through the southeast, so we decided to meet up at my condo on Topsail Island for a couple of days. That was the plan, anyway. We knew it was going to rain a bit. No sweat. We didn’t know–I guess no one did–that the rain would turn…

You Never Sausage a Book!

You know how people say they don’t want to watch sausage being made? Well, I feel as though I invited you, my readers, to watch the writing equivalent of sausage making as you followed my painful progression through the creation of  The Midwife’s Confession. It began a long time ago, when after a couple of months of…
