March Wrap-Up & April Goals

As you can see below, I have seen the cover for Steel Justice (Steel Empires #6)! It is absolutely stunning because Brad Sharp did his usual amazing job. All elements of the book are officially completed, and the final layout process is in the works. The expected release date is sometime this summer, and IContinue reading “March Wrap-Up & April Goals”

February Wrap-Up & March Goals

February is already a short month, and being productive made it feel even shorter. Or maybe that was the old-fashioned cold that laid me up for a week of it. Major changes lately include settling into my new multi-computer setup for officially working from home full-time, setting up the new mattress and bed frame thatContinue reading “February Wrap-Up & March Goals”

Con Report: Farpoint 2021

Let’s face it — for the weird sorts of introvert like me, who can put that on hold for a certain amount of time to people it up for two or three days at a convention and then hide at home for a week afterward, a virtual event will never be the same. As muchContinue reading “Con Report: Farpoint 2021”

Farpoint 2021 Schedule

Farpoint 2020 was the last event I attended in person before the world went bonkers. Alas, like so many other conventions, it is being held online this year. I’m pleased to participate in three panels from the comfort of my own home, but you know I’ll miss seeing all of your lovely faces. Find moreContinue reading “Farpoint 2021 Schedule”

January Wrap-Up & February Goals

We thought 2021 would be low-key. Isn’t that cute? Instead, there have been some major ups and downs that distracted me from my goals. On the other hand, I also got some great news about my day job–the pandemic proved that we do not need a central office to function, which means my permanent teleworkContinue reading “January Wrap-Up & February Goals”

December Wrap-Up & January Goals

Hey, we did it! If you’re reading this, we survived the train wreck that was 2020. I sincerely hope that your loved ones fared as well, and that we all do much better in 2021.

Holiday Letter 2020

December 2020 Dear Family & Friends, Hanna, Erik, and the three cats have successfully managed to stay healthy throughout the shenanigans brought by 2020. We are fortunate that both of our jobs ensured continued employment, and while Erik continues to work in-person on his military base, Hanna has been working full-time from home since March.Continue reading “Holiday Letter 2020”

November Wrap-Up & December Goals

I swung into November, literally, by attending an amazing sword technique workshop hosted by the Highlander himself, Adrian Paul, on Halloween. If the Sword Experience comes to your area, I can’t recommend it enough. I learned a lot, and what I was already familiar with was a lovely refresher. I look forward to incorporating thoseContinue reading “November Wrap-Up & December Goals”

October Wrap-Up & November Goals

Based on the dreary, rainy weather outside my office, I suppose fall has officially arrived. Cloudy days call for a second cup of coffee, especially since I have started getting up when the spouse leaves for work to spend some time with Ring Fit Adventure and on the elliptical before my workday begins. It’s brutalContinue reading “October Wrap-Up & November Goals”

September Wrap-Up & October Goals

Another month of this crazy year has come and gone. The spouse and I escaped to Atlanta for a week, to socially distance with friends who also work from home. It was absolutely lovely and reminded me how much I miss conventions this year. The TARDIS drove and charged beautifully on its first road trip,Continue reading “September Wrap-Up & October Goals”
