Writing with life

My worst problems are nothing but they can take my energy. It would be nice to write 1,000 words a day. I allow myself the luxury of not emotionally abusing myself if I don’t make my quota.

The reason is that while I am not writing, my brain is coming up with new plot twists. It also allows me to form up a new book to work on when I am done with my current book project.

What are my books like

I am committed to portraying the violent word in a low level of visual. It’s all about what the characters are thinking and feeling. How the characters act is off camera so to speak.

I have been heavily criticized for not putting insects in and focusing on the dirt: ie. Underground Seattle in my Aaron adventures.

1. Aaron is finding the tunnel before any current people went down there.

2. I was postulating what the area was like back then. I know that is still dirt only and I didn’t want to touch anything.

For these reasons, I wrote it as I did. I apologize if the insects were left out. I had a lot to say in only 10,000 words.


I share yesterday that I was working on changing my website around. One more step has been successful. My blog posts are once again on my Amazon author page.

New website/New blog

As I continue business, I recently change website companies. Of course, this intales changing blog sites.

This also means modifying my Author page on Amazon. I tried again today, but I will have to wait three days to see if this post shows up on the author page.

I don’t do complication easily, but waiting is acceptable.


Well, I probably won’t get much sleep tonight. Tomorrow is my Friday all day signing in Renton. With the commute it will be about a 13 hour day.

Valley General in Renton. Construction still taking up much of the parking.


I joined a new writer’s group. I am just listening and staying the course with my writing. I feel like there is more that I can do, and I will do it when I figure it out.

In the meantime, life is demanding. Dental work, kids, grand kids, house. Life.

I have decided my serial killer series will be getting a fourth book. That is, right after I finish Ezra, book 3 in my espionage series

Book groups

Over the years I have tried many book club meetings, but they didn’t mesh with my needs. Tommorow, I am trying a new group. I try not to have expectations, but I have hopes. If it isn’t right, I will keep looking. I have heard that persistance pays of. I think it is my turn for a pay off.

Came up with a couple new twists for Ezra. It is moving but my energy level is low.

I also have an all day book signing at Valley General in Renton. Part of the proceeds go to their charity. Friday October 11th, 7 am to 5 pm. It’s a killer for my retired bones, but I will try to be there by 6:30 am…

New Website carrier

Hi, I am completely changing my website. This will take many tries, I am certain. It seems more professional to me, input appreciated.

I am still working on my book, Ezra. It is a sequel to the Felicia and Colin espionage series. I think it is improved, but then I am only about half finished.

I have been really frustrated with my website and blog and social media as it is very time consuming, and then add my life. It is too much. I write, I publish, I advertise, and keep house (ha). I suppose you can see why I mostly let Amazon sell the books.

I have a book signing coming up at Valley General in Renton on October 11. It is all day so stop by. It is a partial donation to their charity. See you if you can make it.
