The hardest part of producing an audiobook is finding the perfect narrator. I found the perfection in Leah Casey. I could not be prouder of the job she did, bringing my characters to life. SECOND SIGHT is now on audio at a super low price. You can find it HERE.

It's time for spring cleaning.
Not that kind!
I won't be getting off my butt to clean closets or dust the bookshelves. I'm talking about spring cleaning as it pertains to writing. I'm rethinking my goals, clearing out the doubts, and forging ahead with my third Sleepy Hollow book. I'm usually a pantser, but this book has been giving me fits...literally. Ask my husband.
I still don't have a definitive outline, but I have written down upcoming scenes which makes it much easier. Having done lots of work for hire in the past, that outline does make it easier. But as part of my spring cleaning, I'm tossing out the internal editor. So what if the first draft reads like a second grade summer vacation essay? It's a first draft. It's supposed to be crappy. If first drafts were perfect, they'd be finished novels. And, hey, rewriting is my life.
So this spring I'm pitching out the old and producing the new. And new ideas keep hatching like baby chicks.
How is your spring cleaning coming along?
Do you believe in the power of the full moon? Try moon tea. It's like sun tea without the teabags. Set a jug of water out under the full moon. Preferably where the moon is actually reflected on the water's surface. Leave it out for at least an hour. Then drink, imagining the reflective beauty of the moon filling and healing you of stress. You might even find that the moon tastes of marshmallow. That sweet, sweet full moon.
