You Are Invited to a Book Signing

Evergreen Crystals is the fourth in the Leeward Files Series. Most of you were expecting Red Steel and that’s coming soon, I promise, but I thought I could whip out a little holiday romance, give the gals of Leeward their happy endings and move on, BUT….

Sticky Notes and Note Cards NaNoWriMo Prep 2

My secret weapon isn’t so secret: Sticky Notes and Note Cards, color coated of course. Now many of you probably use Scrivener or some other program.
