Processing the process

So I have a habit of blogging well for a while, then disappearing all together.

I’ll let you in on a secret.

It’s not just the blogging.  I’ve spent most of my life working in big bursts of creative fire where all sorts of things get done in all sorts of areas and for a while I am super woman.

Or perhaps, I’m Icarus…

"E"

The letter “E” sneaks up on thee… from all sorts of places…

Do you see it?

Also, “E” is for Ellie Lambert… don’t miss my interview with her over on my author site!  Here’s the beginning:

I sat down with Ellie the other day now that some of the excitement and chaos of the events recorded in Flight of Blue have settled down just a bit for her and her friends.

Kai’s Aunt Ginger dropped her off at a favorite local hole-in-the-wall coffee shop.  She showed up in a emerald green t-shirt, jeans with a big hole in one knee, and black flip-flops.  Her toe-nail polish matched her t-shirt, and her curly hair was giving her ponytail holder a hard time.

We sat down with our drinks, I with my black coffee, she with an iced dirty chai latte.  I noticed her choice of drink and scrapping my carefully crafted questions for a moment, asked her about it.

Me: So I noticed you got a dirty chai latte. I didn’t think you were the type.

(She deadpanned me at this point)

Ellie: It’s just a shot of espresso in a normal chai latte.

Me: Oh.

Ellie: Are you looking for this?

(Hands me my pen).

Me: Oh, er, thanks! Okay, let’s get started.  So, Ellie, tell me, who is the most important person in your life?

Two New Things

Two new things are coming my way and thus your way, one sooner than the other, and one much bigger than the other.

The bigger one is the later one, but I’m going to talk about it first because I’m most excited about it, okay?

Okay. I knew you’d see things my way.

This July (it’s looking like July 1st even!), I’m releasing my first novel (well, first novel that you get to read), Flight of Blue.  It’s the first book in a trilogy called the Keeper of the Keys Chronicles, and I’m so totally excited about it.  If you sign up for my very occasional updates (email newsletter), you’ll receive notice about giveaways and release dates and specials (Psst! There will be some $0.99 days for the ebook as a promotion right after it comes out…)

If you like to review books and would like to receive an advance readers copy (paperback, and yours to keep so long as you post a review on Amazon and Goodreads (if you’re on there you can shelve the book now!), contact me.

Okay, enough on that! On to the next thing…
