The Caverns Of My Mind

*echoey Click. echoey Clack. echoey Click. echoey Clack*

::Betsy stops:: ::looks around::

Huh. It’s really empty in here.

::pokes at a brain cell::

Ew. Serotonin. ::wipes hand on jeans::  Seriously.  It’s like a wasteland.  There’s usually something floating around in here . ::waves hand in air::  Nope.  Nothing.  Hello!!


Wow. This is a trifle…disturbing. *click-clack-click-clack* Hello? Hello? Nothing.  Wait! I think I see something over in that corner.  Is that a…recliner?  *click-clack-click-clack* ::stops abruptly:: What?

Oh. Hi.

Who are you?

I’m your Muse.

My Muse?


Release Week Reflections

As you may have guessed from this blog post, release week made me a little manic. There has just been so much to do, so many people to talk to, so many comments to be made and answered. I actually felt my heart palpitating at work one day when the stress of the day job met the stress of the release. So I decided it was time to stop, sit down, and reflect on things a little bit.


It seems to me that today is not the day for a funny, chatty little blog post.

Today is a day to remember all of the people lost on 9/11/01.  It’s a day to remember the people around the world who lost their lives to terrorism before that terrible day.  It’s a day to remember all of the people, both in the international armed forces community and civilians, who lost their lives or sacrificed their health and well-being in its aftermath.

Busy, Busy

And then I have to…


But first I should retweet…and then I have to comment on…

Yo, Betsy!

Oh!  Oh!  I can’t forget to post…


What!?!  Oh. It’s you.  Hello, Blogosphere.

Were you just going to ignore me?

Ignore you?  Ignore you?  How the heck can I ignore you?

Well, it’s just that–

I mean, I’m on the freaking computer all of the freaking time!  I’m talking to some part of you every spare moment of the day!  Twitter.  Facebook.  Google+…

Yeah, don’t worry too much about Google+

HOLD ME Countdown – Bonus Story: Sisters (and some blog tour info)


1 Day to Release Day!!!!


Can you even believe it?  HOLD ME is being released into the wild TOMORROW, 9/5/11.  It’s rather appropriate that my book is released on Labor Day, because it has been such a labor of love from start to finish.  It has also been like birthing a big giant baby elephant.  I am very excited.  And happy to see it roaming free.

I’m also excited to tell you that starting tomorrow I’ll be on a wee bit of a blog tour.  Perhaps it is not a big blog tour by some author’s standards, but it’s big to me.  Here’s the info:
