Snow Big Deal, Writing Update

On one Monday of the month, I gab about what's going on with me, my writing, and life in general.

2019 is certainly "Marching" right along into March. Time flies!

Snow Big Deal

Snow in our desert backyard

Since it's been rather a snowpocalypse this winter for much of the country, me getting a couple measley inches of the white stuff at my place probably doesn't seem newsworthy. But it was kind of magical for us, since it was not only our first snow at the new house, but the first to sit on the ground at any place I've ever lived. Also, it was our daughter's first time experiencing snow. Apparently, this was the first significant snowfall here in the desert since 2008, which reminded me of another first. The year I moved to the Inland Empire, we took the kids to a neighborhood holiday display where Santa Claus was handing out candy canes. While the kids met him, it began snowing. Just a nice flurry that melted in minutes, but it was magical. The kids thought Santa made it snow just for them. It hadn't snowed in that area in many years, and it hasn't since.

Aside from our snow experience, I've been busy dealing with car fun this month (with all the commuting through the mountain pass to the day job, the transmission had to be rebuilt). And Bri had her first official dance, a roaring-20's event that we drove over two hours to get to. But she had such an amazing time that it was well worth it.

Writing Update

With Heat of the Dragon now released, I've been busy prepping a contemporary romance for my Janell Michaels pen name. This one is Never the Bridesmaid, Book 2 of the Going to the Altar series. The outline is complete, and as I write this (on Thursday, set to post on Monday), I'm beginning the first draft. In fact, my fingers are itching to tap out a few lines before taking the rental car back (now that the car's fixed) and heading down the hill to work. So I'll sign off here and dive in.

Until next time...

On select Mondays, I like to gab about whatever's going on with me. For more gab, please join me on Twitter or Facebook. I love talking to people!
