If you haven't seen it, the cover for The Deep Dark Woods anthology a short piece of mine will appear in is now on my Publications tab. I've also done some fiddling with the tabs in an attempt to get closer to making my blog my author website. If you have a second, check them out and let me know what you think!

What do you think of the cover for The Amaranthine? Any of these links of interest? Anything to share? Did you check out my updated tabs? What do you think about them?

May you find your Muse.


  1. The cover for The Deep Dark Woods is wonderfully creepy! :)

    I like how, on the Publications tab, you have the covers of where your work can be found. It feels like a lot of scrolling, though - of course, that could just be my computer set-up, etc. Could you put the "coming soon" work next to the work that's available now? Like two columns? Or two different tabs instead? (Just a thought - I am far from a marketing/blogging expert!) :)

    1. I agree on the scrolling. I shrunk everything down and simplified the page, but I'm still not entirely happy with it. Hrm. Not sure if I can make the two columns, but I'll look at that.

  2. The cover for The Deep Dark Woods is wonderful and scary. I like it! Thank you so much for mentioning my release. You are amazing and I am very grateful.

    1. I love your publication tab. You have a lot of stories available. Congratulations!

  3. Big congrats to Murees. I'm seeing her everywhere!

  4. Yay for Murees! I can't wait to read his book. But I have to. Darn time that won't stop moving no matter how much I beg it to...

    1. Thank you! I hope you enjoy it.

    2. I'm sure it's going to be great. Can't wait to read it either!
