Visit My New Blog

So... this blog was titled Vintage Kitchen Mysteries when that series was all I wrote.

And now I have three series, two still in production, and perhaps more to come. So it was time to move my blog to one more representing who I am as a writer.

So follow me to my new blog, where I will tell you all my news, blog my blog tours (??) and hopefully blog about other topics too, like vintage kitchenalia, my collections, recipes etc.

Here it is, folks! Click on the link...

Gonna try this blogging thing more often...

So... I've been blogging on and off for years, right? I do once a month on Killer Characters, and do blog tours for every book that comes out.

But here? I haven't been so consistent.

To that end, I've been perusing blog topic blogs. Kind of odd, I suppose, but I'm never sure what readers will be interested in. So...

I'm throwing it out there... any questions you want answered or things you'd like to know? Ask away!??

Here's a neat post about blog ideas...

Some ideas...

1 - How Did I Get Here? - my road to publication.

2 - What In The World Is This? - weird kitchen gizmos I have known.

3 - Things NO Writer Wants To Hear - how not to upset the writers... shhhh, she's working! LOL.

4 - Best of the Worst - Rotten Reviews I Have Had.

5 - Aaaaand... what else??

No Mallets Intended Blog Tour Dates!

Hey, all,

I'm so thrilled that No Mallets Intended is out, and I look forward to what readers think about Jaymie's latest adventure, and the changes about to take place in her life!
So... let me know what you think! I'm eager to hear all about it. As I write, I do think of the readers, but much of what happens in my characters' lives is organic, proceeding from what came before in what I hope feels like a natural way. Jaymie was dissatisfied and questioning why the men in her life seemed just not quite right for her. 

Was it her? Was it them? Was she just not ready?

But so much in life happens while we're trying to figure it out, and sometimes you just have to go with the flow.

And speaking of flow... over the next few weeks to a month I will be at various blogs promoting No Mallets Intended. Sometimes there will be giveaways! So... I will update every day I am at a blog with the active links, below. Follow me!
