Monday Mentions: Writer-icity, Pets & Fiddling Around


Maurice, my Dragon-Muse, has been kicking my ass-ets to get the fiction done!

Meanwhile, I’ve also been struggling to finish the thriller edits and my editor has been incredibly patient with me. This week is THE week! We’re already working on the cover and of course we want it to be special. I’ll have some news shortly about how you–yes the readers!–can get in on the thriller-icity and have a bit of a say in what goes in the book. Stay tuned.

Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. Some of this “schtuff” can be hard to categorize and may fit more than one topic so I urge you to at least scan them all.

    • Thanks Natalie! We have an AWESOME cast–and the orchestra sounds terrific, too. Last night’s tech rehearsal went well so I think we’re more than ready for our first audience on Thursday.
