My fab web designer, Cliff, updated my website and now all is right with my internet world.
The site meets the requirements for…whatever (stuff I don’t understand) and can be viewed on all the tiny devices other people use (my phone still flips open and makes tech savvy people shriek).
All of the background photos featured on the site are by my husband and me, and we’ve added a photography section because we’re in love with the picture taking. We’ll probably update that section periodically.
We finally link to my Twitter page, my Tumblr page and my Facebook page, so “friend” me or follow me, and I’ll do the same.
I hope you like it!
I can’t believe it’s been a little over three years since my last post. Time flies.
I’m always on the look out for natural products with great scents, and after a failed attempt to light Japanese incense in my apartment (I started choking), I found P.F. Candle Co. – Homemade soy candles with marvelous scents like Spruce, Campfire and Summer Breeze.
Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday. If you’re looking for a cool stocking stuffer or Secret Santa gift, and would like to support a small business, I think the 7.5 oz candles are a great idea. They are $16 and the packaging is gender neutral. I think the Teakwood and Tobacco scent is perfect for a man or woman.
My favorite scents are Summer Breeze and Campfire.
Here’s my stash:
Thank you to all of the readers who have contacted me to say you love Whiskey Road. It has been a long process, and I can’t honestly say I’ve enjoyed all of it. I love the novel I wrote, but the journey from writing the book to seeing it in bound form is long and can truly drain a person’s creativity and confidence.
I’ve been having a tough time getting into my next projects, but each time I hear from someone, I’m motivated to keep working. The really cool thing is, no one just says “I loved Whiskey Road.” All of you have written to say how much you enjoyed His Insignificant Other and Such a Girl. And you urge me to write a new one soon.
I don’t know when my next book will be finished, but please keep your correspondence coming. It may seem like a small gesture, but it means so much! Thank you!
