New look, new book(s)

What started a nit-picking my blog width resulted to a new design for my entire website. Like it? I do. I’m all for re-doing things these days. I went over Magic at Work, which I unpublished a while ago to send to a publisher. I was supposed to edit a few things, but ended up Read More

New Website and blog!

If you haven’t seen me grumble and/or preen about it on social media, you’re lucky. I’ve spent several hours the past week trying to make this look the way I wanted it to. I was super lucky I didn’t have to do more, since the always brilliant Allyson Lindt (if you don’t know her, grab Read More

A Resolutions Post

2014 treated me well—definitely better than 2013. My husband got a job, my sister got married, and I wrote more than I did the previous two years combined. I hope the goodness continues in 2015, and I plan on doing my part to assure that. So these are my New Year’s Resolutions. Let’s see which Read More

It’s a wrap, and it’s not a romance #CherryBlossom

Last night a miracle happened. I actually finished Cherry Blossom. Yes, I wrote the words “The End” months ago, but 16,000 words have been added since. The story was complete before, but now it’s whole. This book scared me every step of the way. I kept worrying people will hate it; find the character development Read More

I’ve been a bad girl

I haven’t been around much, and my posts have mostly been book spotlights, but it’s because I’ve been writing, and editing, and making covers and changes that I hope you’ll love! Cherry Stem has (another) new cover and a new home. She’s coming back on October 14th with Acelette Press. Here’s the cover: And Cherry Read More

Publishing plans for the near future

Rachel Kenley wrote a brilliant post on Silken Sheets & Seduction about how to get motivated. She suggested seven quick ways, and I plan on following each of them, but thought I’d star with number five―Going Public. The idea is to hold yourself accountable to your friends by publicly committing to achieving your goals. My Read More

WordPress Said I Should

I got an email saying I needed to post. And I’m a mindless drone, so I’m doing just that (and why do I keep typing ‘donig’ instead of ‘doing’ today? That’s donig, not dong. Minds out of the gutter now!) So, I actually have some news. *clears throat* I FINISHED THE TENANT! I already squealed Read More

My Writing Process – Blog Tour

Leigh Ellwood tagged me for this one. If you haven’t checked out her blog or her writing, you’re missing out. Run. Now. You can come back here later. Leigh also writes for Silken Sheets & Seduction. Make sure to catch her posts every second and fourth Thursday of the month. I know I’ve done one Read More

Drive-by flaily update

1) My home laptop is dead. We formated it, but there are also hardware issues with it, and we have to wait for the parts to arrive before it can work again. Awesome hubby decided to set up an ancient desktop computer we found lying around in our storage room for himself, and is giving Read More

Exotic Beast – sneak peek

This is yet another new project (and I’m also working on Cherry Blossom these days–in-laws’ visiting has kick-started my muse…) If you’ve read/are reading Magic at Work, you may get a kick out of it. NOTE: This blog is Adults-Only. Keep that in mind when reading anything I post. Exotic Beast by Xopi ChilliChapter One Read More
