Three Little Words

Awe! Some! Sauce!

Wow, did I ever have a great weekend!

First, #4 Daughter took me out for lunch to my new favorite place (Point Blank Brewing Company in Corydon, Indiana). Then, #3 Daughter gave me two beautiful scarves to add to my collection. And it wasn’t even my birthday or anything!

My publisher, Hydra Publications, put up a Kickstarter campaign for SAGE which met its (admittedly low) goal within the first 24 hours! The campaign still has 27 days to go; the further it exceeds its initial goal, the more swag will go to contributors.

I was the Featured Indiana Blogger at the little Indiana blog. I love that blog and its newsletter already, since I love my little Indiana town. Hop over and read the interview. Jessica is so much fun! I wish I knew her for realsies.

And today, Hydra sent me a contract on my science fiction novel, SIDESHOW IN THE CENTER RING, which was published in 1994 and is just longing to be reissued.

I also figured out how to knit a turtle! I’ll post the pattern on Thursday. 🙂

So you see why I’m doing the happy dance? Wouldn’t you?

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies on the topic of pickled mustard seed sauce, which is another awesome sauce for the list. 🙂

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: What would make your main character do the happy dance?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      It’s on the way to publication, even as we speak! Well, after it’s edited. And edited again. And formatted. And edited again….
