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.

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 .

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 . Bec ause 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 wri ting.

New Release - REVIVAL: The Donald Braswell Story by Mark Koopmans

I'm thrilled today to be part of Mark Koopmans' book release blog tour. Mark is a talented writer and a funny, kind guy, whom I'm grateful to call friend. Tomorrow is the official release day for REVIVAL: The Donald Braswell Story , but we're starting this party early. Congratulations, Mark! :D From Juilliard to jumper cables; from wasting all the talent in the world to America's Got Talent, REVIVAL —The Donald Braswell Stor y is a memoir about the "Texas Tenor" who lost his voice in a random accident, but finds his calling through faith—and a musical miracle. ### I must interject that I have had the pleasure of reading REVIVAL , and I can assure you it's a well-written, compelling story that is very much worth your time.
