Cool stuff


Clark is alwys busy creating something awesome. Working on an indie sci-fi movie right now as well as building some guy a pirate ship for a Halloween party. He's also making a prosthetic face for one of my boy's costumes and some legit fangs for me. (= I will post pics!
To see some more things he has done check out THIS LINK.

Also just felt like mentioning that, in case you have not heard, Alex Cavenaugh's book, CassaStar came out this month! I for one, will get a copy.



Whenever someone gets their book out there I feel even more encouraged as I trudge through edits on my WIP. Sometimes I feel like I hate my book...but a little voice keeps telling me that it's worthwhile and that I shouldn't give up on it. In fact, I really think its going to be good--and I mean that in the least cocky way possible. I am so forunate to have a great writing group, Writers Cubed, who help keep me going. And a bunch of beta readers who gave me great feedback on my early drafts and helped me realize I was on to something special. To all my writing friends out there-- suround yourself with support and keep on writing!

Do something nice for someone--pass the good karma and have a fabulous weekend everyone. (=

Jo, thanks!! And it is worth it - keep writing.

And tell your husband if CassStar becomes a movie, I hope he gets to work on the special effects.

Some nights I am far from encouraged about ever being published, hence my post :

But I am happy for Alex, and I wish you luck on your WIP. And may your Halloween be all treats and no tricks!

Let's hear it for beta readers - where would we be without them?

I'm glad Alex is getting so much blog promotion. I hope the book is doing well. And I agree, it gives the rest of us hope.

I love the sketch your husband drew on your sidebar. It must be cool to see your characters come to life.

Did Clark really build that time machine from Back to the future? That's insane. What a cool job he has. let us know when his project hits that site so we can support it.
