This easy sock pattern can be found in my Ravelry shop, or on the Patterns tab at the top of the page. The ankle… Continue reading New Book, New Pattern!
How is it the end of August already? What happened? Send out at least 1 query every week I did not send out any queries in July or August. I was completely swamped in July, and in August I entered #Pitchwars on Twitter. While outstanding queries are okay. it is against the rules to actively… Continue reading August Wrap Up
I know this isn't one of my regular blog update days. But I didn't think this could wait. As you all know, we recently became a single-income household--not by choice. We've been doing what we can to rectify the situation, but it hasn't been enough. Right now, we're about $400 short of being able to… Continue reading A Hard Thing
Send out at least 1 query every week This did not happen. I was so busy, I didn't have the time to invest in it. You would think sending query letters would be a quick thing to do, especially since it's mostly copying and pasting, but it usually takes me about 15-30 minutes per email,… Continue reading July Wrap Up

All of these patterns are available on Ravelry. Some of them are free, some are not. And no, none of these are my designs.… Continue reading Character Aesthetic: Evie Cappelli

Some of these are just review shows, others concentrate on the craft of writing or on publishing. If you were daunted by the long episodes on the knitting list, fear not.… Continue reading Best Book/Writing Podcasts on Youtube

I'm back! We have officially moved into our new place. I'm still trying to find where I put everything (including my sanity), but we are moved, the cats are fine, and we made it to Cinici. Moving was...let's just say hell. Our truck got overbooked and had to be back 5 hours early. Then the… Continue reading GIVEAWAY! Also, chatter.
