New Digs

So I decided it was time to give myself more of a permanent work space than just lounging on my bed with my laptop. 

This is what I came up with:
Not too bad, right?

It came just in time too.
I've just started writing the final chapter of Born of Ash and Iron.

Its going to be good!

More Louies

I've decided its time that Westerns come back around.
I mean, what's not to love?
Take for example, "Tombstone."
The version with Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer.
That right there is a perfect depiction of the many wonderful facets of a true western.
Cowboys, outlaws, justice, battles, and a demonstration of some serious character. 

Yep. Its definitely time. 

One Louis L'amour was not enough.
We need more.

Its happened!
Yesterday I looked up onto a hillside and saw a patch of leaves turning.
I am thrilled!
Fall is my favorite season and seeing the first signs of its arrival fills me with happiness.

Maybe I should start baking all things pumpkin now  - get a head start on all that goodness. 
Its never too early to start indulging in pumpkin.

I mean, look at this:
And this:
Or this:

No. No excuse is necessary when it comes to pumpkin.

Here I want to go

I want to go here. 
Sit for a few hours.
Breathe deeply.
Maybe dip my toes in the water.

Close your eyes.
Can you see yourself there?

I'm pretty sure our collective sighs just filled the universe.

Go Time!

My editor and I have scheduled a date for the manuscript of Born of Ash and Iron
to be placed in his proverbial hands.
That gives me right around 22 days to finish writing this book.
