Fun Links for Labor Day

I thought it might be fun to do a semi-regular round up of all the cool stuff I found on the internet recently. Capturing the Faces of Water. Pictures taken with “a special type of film with a layer of liquid iron that records the movement of the water itself.” Amazing pictures! (They kind of […]

August Check-In

Since it’s been about a month since I wrote a blog that wasn’t a review of some kind or music related I thought it might be nice to do a check-in post. So, Noble Romance folded, which means my second book The Beauty’s Beast is no longer available for purchase. 🙁 I’m going to re-release […]

My mom used to love watching musicals with us, especially Kiss Me Kate and Calamity Jane (because of this, my sister and I each have a deep and enduring obsession with the wonderful and sexay […]

Music Break: Newest Songs

These are the three newest songs I’ve added to my iPod in the past couple weeks. (Please note, some of these are pretty old. “New” in this case means “just discovered” and not “just came out”.) I didn’t really enjoy High Noon (the review is coming soon), but man I really liked the ballad by […]

Music Break: Heir to the Underworld

As I’ve mentioned before, music is a pretty important part of my writing process. I always make a playlist for my books, and I use certain songs to help get me in the right headspace to write a scene. A few months ago, I did a blog about the playlist of songs from my first […]

Music Break: My Favorite Songs

I thought it might be fun to do a music break of some of my favorite songs that might be a bit more obscure to most people. “Return of the Eagle” — The Eagle Soundtrack [youtube=] I’ve probably talked about my love for Atli Ovarsson before. He’s an up and coming film composer. I love, […]

An Accomplished Woman…

I’m doing really damn good today: Went grocery shopping. Did a 45 minute walk around the neighborhood. Changed the litter box. And I’m eating a SALAD. I feel all accomplished and shit. Like a Jane Austen heroine or sumthin. ;P
