Monday (a)Musings

by | Sep 10, 2018

#AuthorConfession #1: I am that person who wakes up before everyone else. Makes her cup of tea or coffee or cappuccino–and will remake it until it is perfect if it doesn’t come out right the first time. I’m happy to report that this morning’s 6:15 mug of loose-leaf Assam came out Just Right.

#AuthorConfession #2: I love beginnings: Mondays. The first day of each month, each year. The equinoxes and solstices. I love beginnings because they mark thresholds, they hold so much possibility.

On this mixed-weather Monday, my feline assistants are holding me to task as I fill my buckets. I’ll download photos from last week’s camping trip, jot ideas for blog posts, and start to listen to a backlog of podcasts from Smart Bitches Trashy Books, 99% Invisible, and Seth Godin’s Akimbo.

I have a book launch to work on, too. MAGIC REMEMBERED is the first of an #urbanfantasy trilogy featuring Calliope Jones, earth witch and divorced mother of two teenage sons. And I’m chuckling at myself because some of the secondary characters are already clamoring for their HEAs (‘Happily Ever Afters’, in #romancelandia parlance).

What are *you* up to this week?
