Branding and the Independent Creative

I recently attended a panel discussion designed to help the independent creative -- musician, writer, performance artist, artist, photographer, etc. -- learn how to brand herself. It wasn't meant to be just about branding, but also about distinguishing one's self above all the other artists who are also on their independent grind and who are [...]

Today at the Lakefront

In recent years I've mostly used Chicago's lakefront for utilitarian purposes: running or walking. I've rarely gone to just hang out and enjoy the day. I'm always too busy. In years past, especially when one niece in particular lived in the city, we'd go there almost weekly to sit on the rock croppings to talk, [...]

Please Accept Our Sincere Apologies

As Ros said, those of you who pre-ordered the book from amazon, please accept our sincerest apologies for this debacle.

If you pre-ordered Oh, What a Christmas and/or Christmas Wishes & Kisses from Amazon you did not get the entire file. There were changes made that for reasons we don’t understand did not go through. THIS IS FOR THE PRE-ORDERS ONLY.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but in order to get the corrected books, you’ll need to return and then re-buy them. Again, we are so sorry this happened.

Hold on to those pre-order receipts and we’ll make it up to you on the next book in the series, Putting the EX in Christmas. Again, this is for the pre-orders only from Amazon. All other copies of the book are fine. 

Oh, What a Christmas

Christmas Wishes & Kisses

I love holiday books like damn and whoa and fortunately, my un-indicted co-conspirator loves them too. Having worked in social services for so many years, this series, about five young women who grew up together in foster care is near and dear to my heart.

I’ve tinkered with this cover forever. And you know how when you struggle with something for a long time and somebody else comes along and makes one suggestion that is exactly right? Yeah, Whit did that to me. Being the brat that I am I wanted to ignore his suggestion, but it was so right I couldn’t but I still pouted at him, so there. Here’s the blurb and I’ll post the links as soon as it goes up. I hope you enjoy it as much as we’ve enjoyed writing it. And remember, sign up for my newsletter between now and release day to be entered…
