Objectives, Part 1

fairytaleBetsy’s starship is lurching around the galaxy. THE book she’s been working on for endless millennium has been released into the wild.  So what’s next?  What path will Betsy traverse?  What mountain will she climb?  Will she lounge upon her sofa eating bon-bons? Or will she buckle down and keep moving?

Let’s see….


Our Cast of Characters-

Betsy – an author of undetermined talent and so-so perseverance who is on a Quest to become a successful independent author and, perhaps, a successful human being.

Print News and Other Newsy-News

Computer ReadingHello, my friends!  I thought I would write another chatty, newsy little blog post, because I actually have news to chat about!  And that, as we all know, is so rare an occurrence that it must needs be celebrated.  So, I’m going to try to ignore the incredibly persistent fruit fly determined to fly up my nose and persevere.

Just as a side note, is there anything more annoying than a persistent fruit fly?  I don’t think so! *pfffff*  Gah!  I think I just snorted a fruit fly!

Checking In

Well, I just looked at the date of my last blog post and good golly Miss Molly, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?  Sorry about that. I’ve actually been busy working on writerly things. As opposed to just telling you I’m working on writerly things when really I’m eating myself into a sugar-coated coma.

Okay, maybe there have been some sugar-coated coma moments happening because – peanut butter ice cream.  And maybe some diabetic moments. And a few mental, emotional, and spiritual breakdown moments.  But mostly I’ve been working on writerly things.  So I thought I’d write a quick post to tell you-all what’s been going on, writerly-wise.

There, And Back Again


My dears, I have climbed the mountain this week.

I chipped at the rock of Amazon Kindle, breaking off enough pieces to give me toeholds so I could start scaling the sheer cliff face.

I pored through the underbrush of Kobo, slithering into the hidden clearing, pushing my way through despite the thorns piercing my skin.

I was almost smothered by the dense, choking weeds of Nook, forced to take up my machete and slash the fronds that bound me whilst bellowing my battle cry.

“Handling It” Is LIVE!

Handling It Cover revised final high resMy angels, my darlings, my little treasures sent from heaven, I’m pleased to tell you that my book, Handling It, is LIVE!!!!!   Hooray!!!!!  It can now be purchased on all of the Amazon Kindle stores and on the Kobo store.  It will be available on iBooks in the next couple of days (I hope).  And then I’ll tackle Nook.  Nook is making me cranky, but I will not be beaten! *shakes fists at sky*

But regardless, it’s LIVE!  It’s UP!  It’s AVAILABLE!  In some places!


It’s Always Something

What the....!Hello, my friends! I thought I would give you a quick update on how things are going as I walk the rocky path to the publication for my book, Handling It.  Now that I’ve made a commitment to a date and all.

And that date’s coming right along.

Yup. Right along.

Pretty soon. Preeetttyy goldarned soon.


Okay, um, well I’m not going to think about it now.  This is just about reporting what I’ve been doing.  Or not doing, as the case may be.
