I like to celebrate Halloween with royalty...

Happy Halloween!!!

I love this day. I love being a cliché on this day...curling up on the couch and reading a good scary book while freaking out every time the doorbell rings...with of course some Jason or Freddy playing on the TV for

Too bad it's been many a year since I've been able to do that. But in honor of one of my fave authors—and usually my first choice for night's like All Hallow's are some awesome quotes from Stephen King...some of them are kinda weird...some of them are funny...all of them are pure Mr. King!

"The devil's voice is sweet to hear."

"We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones."

"Books are a uniquely portable magic."

"God is cruel. Sometimes he makes you live."

"People think that I must be a very strange person. This is not correct. I have the heart of a small boy. It is in a glass jar on my desk."

"He had a massive stroke. He died with his tie on. Do you think that could be our generation's equivalent of that old saying about dying with your boots on?"

"When his life was ruined, his family killed, his farm destroyed, Job knelt down on the ground and yelled up to the heavens, 'Why god? Why me?' and the thundering voice of God answered, 'There's just something about you that pisses me off.'"

"When asked, "How do you write?" I invariably answer, "One word at a time.""

"The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings - words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out."

"The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool."

"No, it's not a very good story - its author was too busy listening to other voices to listen as closely as he should have to the one coming from inside."

"It's better to be good than evil, but one achieves goodness at a terrific cost."

"I guess when you turn off the main road, you have to be prepared to see some funny houses."

WhIP Wednesday...Farewell

It's HUMP day

And what a kawinky dink, it's also WhIP – funny how those two things fall on the same day isn't it? *droll stare* Yeah yeah yeah I know...but I'm ahead of the game on coffee consumption right now so I will not be blamed for the asinine things that I may spew

This week I'm working on getting some of my Story Orgy Singles up and running...I've got a few to sah-wing with. The one I'm showing attention to right now is from the first evah antho the Story Orgy right?

Here is the cover for Farewell and a smallish blurb...can't wait until it is available! It was previously published in And The Prompt Is...Vol 1.

 Dwight’s heartache leads him to the cemetery; where lessons are waiting to be learned and second chances are freely given.

So how would you Judge Jude?
My new release is now the first chapter here.

Follow the lights...

Yep...and I'm a pantser (not a plotter) so this is doubly

I say doubly true instead of just plain true because plotters don't have it easier...because half the time their characters don't agree with their plotting and go their own way...smh

I've tried plotting once in a while, and I'll say it does help. But the problem is, if I wait for the whole story to come to me so I can plot it may never get written. *heads desk*

WhIP Wednesday...with a cover reveal bonus!

I can count this still on WhIP Wednesday because technically, I'm still getting everything ready for Jude's release in it is! Judging Jude's cover...isn't it amazing?

Jude's a master of running from things: his best friend, his memories, his nefarious dealer. Billy is determined to stop his marathon once and for all.

Judas Stirlying enjoys being a troublemaker. That way, he can skip the middle man and run off people who might care about him before they have the chance to leave on their own. Life is safer that way.

Billy Walker knows the real Jude. Oh, not the strung out jerk he wants the world to see, but the man with hidden depths that forever earned him Billy’s loyalty—whether Jude wants it or not. With the help of Jude's best friend (the one that never falls for Jude's "get lost" vibe) and a mysterious note at a New Year's Eve celebration, Billy will do whatever it takes to show Jude his life isn’t a waste…that maybe, if he changes his path, there really would be something to celebrate.

Billy plans to prove to Jude that his life hasn't been a waste—and prove to the rest of the world that Jude is worth a damn—before the dangers of Jude's past catch up to them all.

Available 10/25/13
