Freshly Booked Interview on Blog Talk Radio…
I Have An Interview!!

I Have An Interview!!

Here’s yesterday’s interview about The Waitress. It was SO much fun!

I’ll be posting in a day or two about what a freaky-deaky set of mishaps I had leading up to it… nearly didn’t manage it at all.

Meantime, if you haven’t already, PLEASE pick up a copy of the book. This “Starving Artist” phase ain’t nearly as romantic as the media makes it out to be…

I’m not sure I even know where to begin…

I was asleep when the ball dropped – woke up when the kids all called for rides home at the same time. It took me three trips, and I drive a mini-van. That’s a lot of drunken 20-somethings…

That old saw about “how you ring in the New Year is an indicator of how your year will go” is flat-out bullshit, if my January has anything to say about it, by the way. I’d have thought January would be a calm and steady same-old, same-old kind of routine month.

I Kinda Love Facebook…

The Waitress, the Whiskey & the Handcuffs

The Waitress, the Whiskey & the Handcuffs

I got a great compliment from a Facebook friend that bought “The Waitress” yesterday. She read it start-to-finish before noticing that the sun had gone down, supper was late – but took the time to tell all her friends on Facebook how much she loved it BEFORE feeding the family!

I feel a little guilty, now… just not so guilty that I won’t invite my readers here to starve their own children (temporarily, at least). ;-)

P.S. A Belated HAPPY NEW YEAR! to everyone! Did you make any resolutions? Did you break them all this week? LOL!
