One-Sided Chat with a Crazy Person

This was going to be a post about The King's Physician promotion. If you're here because you found me through the promotion, welcome! I'm not going to bore you with a recap, except to say I'm glad I did it. I'm slowly building readership. I hope you'll also stick around for these biweekly one-sided chats with a crazy person (me). For those who have been here since the beginning, you remember when my blog was subtitled "Going Quite Mad, no Slightly About It," in honor of the Queen song.

There was one post not included in the promotion - my friend Amy Lane posted a Kermit Flail for me and reminded me of the notebook full of notes I have from meeting her six years ago and picking her brain on all things writing. I haven't been back to San Francisco since the last YaoiCon. I'm going to remedy that in June. I can't wait to hang out with my bestie and have another long chat with Amy about writing, family, what we've been reading, and other fun rabbit trails we follow when we're together.

I've postponed the Farbonnur rewrite once again. I finished the D&D-inspired story, "The Arena," and now I'm working on a paranormal romance I started for a submission call long past. When I'm done with that, I need to get back to the Stan sequel to Breaking All the Rules, and THEN I can focus on The Farbonnur Elves book one (set in the same world as The King's Physician, only hundreds of years later). In the meantime, I'm reading about plot and structure and hoping I'll be a better writer when I get there. The Farbonnur Elves are the reason I fell in love with writing. I want them to shine for the world the way they shine for me.


I'm trying not to be the definition of insanity. Yes, I'm getting into the habit of writing every day, which may be doing the same thing and expecting different results. I'm also studying the craft and reading my peers so I can improve. I hope you stay for the journey, even if it's because, like a train wreck, you can't look away.
