New Patron Goals

In the interest of keeping a roof over my head, I've recently tweaked my Patreon just slightly. All the membership levels are the same, but I've added some new membership-based goals. My Patreon has been fairly stagnant for a while. I'm not entirely sure why, other than "just offering text rewards/author patreons are hard." So,… Continue reading New Patron Goals

Um, What?

Anyone else trying to figure out what the hell happened to November? It was the third, and then I blinked and then suddenly I was two weeks behind on the podcast, Thanksgiving is almost here, and Google is throwing around holiday ads like confetti (I swear, Spottify, if I have to listen to ONE MORE… Continue reading Um, What?

Back in Black

It's been a while, hasn't it? But I did need that time off. I'm not sure I would have been able to meet any of my deadlines for July or August if I'd been concentrating on the blog, too. We moved the last weekend of July; not far, but if you saw my Twitter feed… Continue reading Back in Black

General life update

We are just a few weeks out from the release of Magic in the Headlines, and there is still so much to do. I'm feeling a bit swamped. This week was super busy. First, Bast found a stray cat on our back porch, a very beautiful Main Coon tabby. We are over cat-pacity in our… Continue reading General life update

Check in, with Cats

I hop you are all staying well. So far, despite essentially being at Ground Zero, we are okay. Ash and I have been isolating as much as possible, but we are still both expected to go into work for the time being. I spent the weekend sewing and knitting, and you'll see some of what… Continue reading Check in, with Cats

A Minor Change

Hey guys! I just wanted to let you know I'm going to be making a slight change in the schedule around here. You may have noticed that posts are still a bit erratic following my move. About 12 hours of my day is now eaten up by working and commuting, which doesn't leave a lot… Continue reading A Minor Change

What’s Old is Now New Again

Warning: This post is about to get political. I spent the 4th of July watching WWII movies. The world had become a terrifying place. In the last two years we have seen so many awful changes in the US. There's more violence. People struggle to make ends meet as industries not supported by the current… Continue reading What’s Old is Now New Again

Two Steps Back

I toyed with several introductions to this post, but I think that I just need to come out and say i t. I am looking for a new job. As of Monday, I am unemployed. I loved my job, but for reasons that I do not want to get into, I was let go. This… Continue reading Two Steps Back

Reboot

Okay, so last week got off to kind of a rocky start. Thank you all for your lovely kind words: Teeritz, Spiderwebz, Rob, Bill, and Patrick. I do have bouts of depression (not enough to actually get diagnosed as clinically depressed, but last year was the longest episode of it I've had in a really… Continue reading Reboot
