Louis and the Wolf Moon

When you’re originally from the moon, every full moon is a cause for celebration. Today isn’t just a full moon though, it’s my full moon, the night of the wolf moon, and as an added bonus, there's a lunar eclipse too. You probably don’t think much about stuff like...

PSA: The Full Moon is Rising

Fifteen years ago a celestial battle occurred. You won't find anything about it in your human history books. It's part of an ancient war between the sun and the moon. The sun may have won that battle, but the war is far from over. The inhabitants of the moon were able...

Holiday Surprise

I've never been good at keeping secrets, so running a promo of 12 Days of Holiday Surprise in my Facebook reader group and bot telling anyone the real reason why has been hard, but I did it! See they didn't know we were counting down to this final surprise......

Day 20 – How did I lose a week?

I can't believe a full week passed since my last blog post. Boy did it go quickly! I'm only going to do a brief recap. There are pics up on IG and my author FB page for each day and I'll be photo dumping to my personal FB page soon from pics throughout the entire...

Romance Author Mastermind

My brain is still whirling from information overload from this amazing event. Thank you Skye Warren for hosting it. I made new friends and solified a strong plan for 2020 that I can't wait to get started on! I'm not going to write too much on this right now, but may...

Day 12 & 13 – yucky rainy relaxation

Honestly haven't done much to report in the last 48 hours. The girls and I have been taking it easy and hanging in the hotel. It's been cold and rainy here. And I think we really just needed the downtime, I mean I slept 14 hours straight the first night we were in...

Day 11 – moving on

Texas is facing a cold front. Yuck! Found a good deal on a beachfront hotel in Galveston which is less than an hour from my conference in Houston later this week. So we slept in then packed up, said goodbye to San Antonio and made the 4 hour drive to Galveston. But...

Day 10 – a cold and windy downday.

This is day 10 and we've been running non-stop since we left. 12 states in 10 days. It was time for a break! While we awoke to a warm 70° day, it was cloudy and overcast, meaning we had little desire to venture out. I got some work done on my next book, the older two...

Day 9 – It’s Rachel Day!

Rachel Young is currently in San Antonio, Texas going through AIT for the National Guard. She is Hope's best friend and like a bonus daughter to me. We haven't seen her since she left for basic in July. The first week of our trip was in high speed to get here in order...

Day 8 – After the Highs comes the Lows

On a multi-week trip there's bound to be a couple snags along the way. Let me back it up a little on a couple things I didn't mention already. Arizona has the BEST sunsets! New Mexico has really terrible roads! And,, things got strange as we entered Roswell. This...

Day 7 – Living my best life

We awoke early (on purpose) and headed back to Yavapai Point to watch the sun rise on the Grand Canyon. It is a spectacular thing to see and I highly recommend if you ever get the chance. Watching the canyon come alive in the morning light will be another...

Day 6 – Arches National Park

After a good night's sleep in Moab, Utah we were up and ready to go. Breakfast was good...bacon! Most hotels tend to serve sausage so it felt like a treat. It's the little things! To save money we rarely eat out twice, so free breakfast means we can easily snack...

Day 5 – Mesa Verde

Before we get to the beautiful cliff dwellings of southwestern Colorado, Hope and I started our day at sunrise with a walk around the resort in 23 degree weather. Anyone who knows me at all, knows I despise the cold, BUT it was truly amazing and I'm glad I did it....

Day 4 – Pagosa Springs

After a relaxing night in Alamosa, CO at a really great Comfort Inn & Suites, we headed west. We started in the Rio Grande National Forest and somehow came out in the San Juan National Forest with no idea when or where it changed. I believe they said we took Wolf...
