Check your sleep.

Check the quality of your sleep. This monitors how long and how well you slept. It can even wake you up with a gentle vibrating alarm that won't awaken your partner.

Merry Christmas!

I offer to you the very best of Christmas. And the very best is the gift of eternal life, given to us by God. You don't need anything, to be anything, or belong to anything.
Believe. And God's gift for us is yours also.
Merry Christmas.

far too long!

It's been far too long since I posted to this blog. I don't know why I think I can do something regularly and then forget it.
I've been busy getting rejected for proposals, but the good news is I have received some great feedback from some other authors who write what I write and am looking to writing the best proposal to date.
But it's hard to get constant rejections for your work, and finding yourself scrambling deeper for the stories in you and wondering if they are really there at all. There almost comes a sense of panic and fear and you have to take a break from writing to battle that.
Some would write through it, but I chose to spend the summer doing mission work, gardening, ding things with my family and even going bridal gown shopping with my daughter.
But alas, the fall has come and I have a proposal's synopsis cooling, an historical novel's proposal waiting patiently, and a fun women's fiction story half done.
Like the summer grows the vegetables and matures the grapes, I have been healed by the sun's warmth and long days.
I'm ready to write again.

I'd forgotten about this!


Years ago, when I was writing for Hardshell, I participated in an on line cookbook. It featured various authors posting recipes and excerpts and other fun stuff. I've tried a few of the recipes and they are quite good.

Check this out.http://http//www.scribd.com/doc/26545322/Cookbook

And look for my book, All For A Good Cause and a friend of mine, Norah Wilson's Haunted By Dreams.

Enjoy!
