Selling Houses and Dating Boys Part Deux

By |2017-03-07T16:07:17-06:00April 18th, 2015|Life and Love|

This week, I threw it back to a post on selling houses and dating boys. In it, I wrote about how I felt that “I don’t get perfect,” in either real estate transactions or in dating gentlemen callers.

At the time I wrote that post, I was actually seeing […]

TBT Update – Staying the Course

By |2017-03-07T16:09:27-06:00April 9th, 2015|Rambles|

For today’s TBT, I highlighted a blog I wrote back in August that talked about staying the course and keeping to my intention. I threw out a bunch of ideas an expectations and now I’m just laughing about how little (and much) I knew. It’s so comforting to […]

The Problem with Conviction

By |2017-03-07T16:04:11-06:00March 19th, 2015|Razia, Writing Woes|

I’ve been having some trouble writing Conviction, the third Razia book.

Now, nobody panic. It’s not like I’m giving up or anything like that. But I wanted to be blog a little about the frustration with this damned book, more so I maybe can find a nugget of wisdom to keep […]

Selling Houses and Dating Boys

By |2017-03-06T11:16:18-06:00February 14th, 2015|Life and Love|

As I navigate the perils of real estate, I began to see the similarities between selling houses and dating boys (or girls). I put my Virginia house on the market and it sold 24 hours later. I got a full-price offer, they needed no help on closing costs. The best […]

My Trust Issues

By |2017-03-06T10:54:26-06:00February 2nd, 2015|Self-Love|

I have trust issues.

I didn’t ever used to think I had trust issues. I thought I was an open and honest book. There’s a whole lot that I’m not shy about telling people. But when it comes to really honestly and emotionally connecting with someone…

My Circle of Trust

By |2017-03-07T15:43:15-06:00November 22nd, 2014|Family|

Thanks to a childhood of bullying, I’ve got a predisposition to thinking that everyone secretly hates me. I’m also rarely honest with people – including and especially myself. But there’s a small group of people (read: less than 5) who I consider my “circle of trust,” my people to whom […]

On Being a Carnie Huckster

By |2017-03-07T15:39:58-06:00October 26th, 2014|Publishing Schtuff|

I was in a Facebook group discussion recently, and the topic turned to the idea of advertising e-books. The gentlemen in question lamented that he wasn’t getting noticed because the market was saturated, or something along those lines. I offered my commentary (shocking, I know) that in the Science Fiction […]

My Fear of Running

By |2017-03-06T12:22:30-06:00September 28th, 2014|Self-Love|

I admit it: I have a fear of running.

This is an odd statement to say, considering I’ve run 5 half marathons, 2 full marathons, and countless 5ks and 10ks and 10 milers.

But running causes me severe anxiety.

It probably started when I was in 4th grade, when I ran down the hill […]

Staying the Course

By |2017-03-20T11:36:39-05:00August 31st, 2014|Publishing Schtuff|

This might be my last post for the next three months, as my fifteen new author BFFs are going to be taking over my blog. (Maybe, we’ll see how long I last before I have to blog. It’s almost a compulsion now.) Today I wanted to talk about staying the […]
