Treats for Halloween, no tricks!
I’m reviewing two books today instead of one, because I started book two last night and it sucked me right in and I finished it! Good thing there isn’t a book three yet or I might not have slept at all. Yes, this is a recommendation, right off the bat. I’ve really enjoyed both books,… Read More Review: Unexpected Enlightenment
You can find the first and second snippets here: Farmhand. This is my sweet Western Romance novella, with elements of adventure, family, and working hard under the sun. I hope you enjoy it, and the new cover. It will be released soon, I plan to announce that on November 7th! I had an amusing moment… Read More Farmhand: Snippet Three
Molecule by molecule, drop by drop, the rain falls to the earth. The plants draw it into them, breaking it down into atoms, releasing energy and the very oxygen we breathe… And we exhale water back into the air and it begins again. Light to water to power to… I was thinking this morning about… Read More The Impact of Water
UPDATED: I have bowed to peer pressure (kidding, kidding!)The cover chosen by popular acclaim is now: OK, based on feedback and sorry, everyone, finding a picture of a blonde woman riding a horse that is affordable stock doesn’t seem to be happening, so… These are the final two options. Because I have class (and… Read More Which One?
As I’m finishing up with tweaks and additions to Farmhand, it’s time to face the other big chore that goes under my Publisher’s Hat (for this book, a ten-gallon stetson I think). I’m putting a cover together. Designing a cover for any genre takes many things and rolls them all up into one 4500×2800 pixel… Read More Creating a Romance Cover
As some of you know, I’m part of the regular Raiding Party that guests over at According to Hoyt. My post today deals with the Rule of Law, and the way it is insidiously being threatened all around us. Dave Freer is talking about publishing over at Mad Genius Club today, but what he says… Read More Bureaucracy and Voting
Honestly, that’s what I told the First Reader when I was getting ready to make this recipe. “It’s not about the chicken,” I told him, leaning over the meat selection at the grocery store. “It’s about the other flavors. You don’t like chicken because it’s bland, but by the time this is done” – I… Read More Chicken is just a Vehicle
Explore a century of science fiction with me, captured in a handful of quotes. What is your favorite SF read?
My First Reader and life-partner offered to do occasional posts for me, reviews, or general ramblings. I told him I’d create a Curmudgeon’s Corner for him, so he could feel free to be as pointed and trenchant with his comments and viewpoints as he is in real life. The man is a great evil muse,… Read More Curmudgeon’s Corner: A Familiar Dragon
I’m going to do something a little different today. Those of you who read my blog regularly are now saying (I can hear you in my head!) how is this different from every other day? Well, this is one of those days where I let my inner geek/nerd/techie out to play. Someone shared a link… Read More Geeking At School
Sometime in the next month, a new piece of my work will come out. Only it won’t appear as Cedar Sanderson, author. The reason for this is that I’m trying a new genre, and to keep from confusing my readers who expect fairies, pixies, and ogres to pop out of the woodwork, or space ships… Read More Farmhand
