Hopefully, this isn't goodbye

Most of you have probably noticed by now that my social media presence has been practically nonexistent. I've been a lousy blogger and return visitor, and I hate it, but there wasn't much I could do about it. My alter-ego's life has radically changed.

Due to factors outside my control, I'm going to have to go on hiatus...a real, serious hiatus. I won't even be doing IWSG or promo posts for a while.

I've been battling a serious health issue (and winning!). But the biggest obstacle is that I was recently forced to change jobs and went from working part-time to full-time - in addition to being self-employed. I was struggling before (I'm a working mom with three teenagers, all in high school this year, and one of them a senior), but now I have almost no free time.

I'm faced with the choice: blog or write.
You know which one is going to win.

If any of my fans are reading this, know that I will continue writing. Two more companion novels for Come Back are already planned. I'll get them done; I promise. Just be patient with me.

So this is goodbye for now, but not forever. I'm hopeful that, once I'm settled into my new job and my nest begins to empty, I'll have time to visit my cyber friends again.

I love you all.
Don't hesitate to keep in touch. My inbox is always open. :)

Promo Friday - Special Edition

It's time for Promo Friday again!

Well, not really. I needed to run the December post early, and my guest graciously obliged. 

Blogger / writer J.Q. Rose has a new book. Some of you will remember her from the anthology of writing tips she put together. Today, the book she's promoting is a sweet romantic suspense titled Deadly Undertaking. (Clever title.) Congratulations, Janet! :D

Mom did it again!


We're a prolific family, at least where writing is concerned. LOL

I'm happy to announce that my mom, Jeanette Pierce, has published a second set of workbooks, this time via Elk Lake Publishing and based on the Western Christian Romance When The Cowboy Rides Away by Molly Noble Bull.

These workbooks are designed for use by private schools, home schools, and individuals, and are available on Amazon.

IWSG November - A gift for you

This is my Insecure Writers Support Group post for November.


Alex's awesome co-hosts this month are: 
Stephen Tremp, Karen Walker,  
Denise Covey, and Tyrean Martinson!

Please stop by their blogs and say thank you


My personal life is taking over with a vengeance, and my social media presence is all but non-existant. Because my writing has come to a screeching halt, and my insecurities - both writing and not - are too numerous to list, I decided to re-post something to help you with your writing. It's an old post from in 2013. It was aimed at people doing NANO, but it's for anyone wants tips to speed up their writing.
