Not really THAT sad. This blog has been a good thing for me for quite a few years. I’ve been blogging here since January 2010 on my writing journey. It’s been a long one, that’s for sure. I queried forever, and ended up getting 15 novels published, soon to be 16. Two are out of print, but about to go back into print, thanks to Untreed Reads picking them up. (I’m writing a third in that series now.)
What have I accomplished over these years, 13 of them? (That’s my lucky number, luckily.)
***Imogene Duckworthy series, 4 novels: CHOKE, SMOKE, BROKE, STROKE. Maybe more to come there. I do love writing these.
***Cressa Carraway Musical Mysteries: published with the titles EINE KLEINE MURDER, REQUIEM IN RED. To be republished with the titles I wanted originally, SONG OF DEATH, REQUIEM FOR RED, and the third which is being written now, SWAN SONG.
***Prehistory, People of the Wind series: DEATH IN THE TIME OF ICE, DEATH ON THE TREK, DEATH IN THE NEW LAND.
***First cozy series, Fat Cat: FAT CAT AT LARGE, FAT CAT SPREADS OUT, FAT CAT TAKES THE CAKE.
***Second cozy series: REVENGE IS SWEET, DEADLY SWEET TOOTH, INTO THE SWEET HEREAFTER.
***A Neanderthal recipe for mammoth jerky in COZY FOOD recipe book.
***About 50 short stories in anthologies, magazines, etc. And I’ve published and helped publish a few anthologies myself.
***Helped found the East TN Sister in Crime chapter, Smoking Guns.
***Was treasurer, then president for the awesome online chapter of Sister in Crime, Guppies.
Not too bad, I think! BUT, I haven’t been maintaining this blog, and don’t seem to need it anymore. There aren’t many followers since the following software got all messed up.
SO, it’s time to leave. The post will remain here forever, or until the planet burns or drowns.
Meanwhile, I have grandkids to enjoy, a few more travels to do, and books and stories to write. Thank you, everyone who stuck with this!
I mostly keep this page up, if you want to follow something. I’m also on some social media, links at the bottom of the page.
