Drugs, Habits, and Movies

Drugs: Sorry (again!) for the long silence, but it's been a rough couple of months. I finally got in to see a new neurologist, had an EEG--that test where they put electrodes on your head then flash lights in your eyes--and apparently I had multiple complex seizures...

I broke my face, Upgrading, and Happy Labor Day!

(Sorry, this post got kind of long and medical-y. Wasn't sure I had the energy in me to type at all, but maybe this is a good sign that I can get some real writing done tomorrow.) I broke my face Yes, literally. Early last Monday, I got out of bed and went to the...

INTERSTELLAR Movie Review

(WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD. BUT IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THIS MOVIE, YOU REALLY AREN'T MISSING MUCH. SO MAYBE YOU WANT TO READ THE SPOILERS ANYWAY. 🙂 ) (This review can also be found on Letterboxd. If you're on Letterboxd, leave me a link to your profile in the comments....

A Video!

Thought it might be fun (or weird?) to record myself signing the very first print copy of Shades of Treason. I've got videographer skillz. Not. Watch me totally geek out over a pen, and find out who gets the very first copy. WARNING: Do not watch this in full screen...

Behind the Pages: Penguin Random House Does Something Right!

I love following news in the publishing industry, and instead of soaking it all in, mentally noting "that's interesting," and moving along, I'm going to soak it all in, mentally note, "that's interesting," and then write down my thoughts on it occasionally. This is...

Happy Release Day to Me! Shades of Treason is Out Now.

SHADES OF TREASON is out! Woohoo! So excited! I love this book so much.   How am I celebrating? Well, I'm waiting around for some contractors to come fix my tile*. Oh, the glorious life of a writer. 🙂 In addition to Chapter One, which is posted here, a couple...

I’m Back! Blog Tour, and Giveaway (and a secret!)

I’m Back! (And note to self: never again schedule a long vacation the week before a book release.) Yep, that’s right folks. I was on vacation last week. In Alaska. It was just as beautiful and relaxing as everyone says it is. Spreadsheet Guy and two other couples who...

Self Improvement, Food Prep, and No More Shopping

Kind of a stressful week here at Casa Williams. Lots of stuff going on, and I'm having a fair amount of Mom Guilt this week. I'm hoping to get some writing done a little later this week. I'm way behind where I want to be (surprise, surprise), but I'm hoping some of...

Some Uploading Thoughts

(This is kind of an "inside baseball" post (INSIDE BASEBALL! I've always wanted to use that term, even though I'm not a baseball fan. Woohoo!) so if you're not interested in behind-the-pages kind of technical stuff, you might want to close your eyes. :-)) What have I...

Shades of Treason (Teaser Tuesday)

Got a snippet from Shades of Treason for you guys today. It shows one of my favorite parts of the book--Ash's flirtatious interaction with her former instructor, Rykus. Ash gets a kick out of provoking him, and she's pretty darn good at it. 🙂   Katie said...
Write a Review Wednesday: A Promise of Fire

Write a Review Wednesday: A Promise of Fire

Confession: even though I ask readers to leave reviews for my books and appreciate every single one, I'm TERRIBLE at writing reviews myself. I know! Horrible, right? I just realized this the other day when I looked at Goodreads and saw how far behind I am on my 2016...

Catching up

I just spent an hour and forty-five minutes at my kids' school tearing pages out of workbooks. An hour and forty-five minutes! Non-stop tearing and sorting. My back is totally killing me--just popped a couple of ibuprofen--but I'm so glad I could help out. That's a...

June Updatery

(Quick note: the blog post below is full of lots of mistakes. You'll see why as you read on, but I don't want to make changes. I want to see if the accuracy of my posts increase over the summer. So I'm typing this part as a head's up. And also I'm admitting that I...

Book rec and new author alert!

Book rec and new author alert!

Over the weekend, I read PIRATE BOUND by new author Carysa Locke, and I LOVED it. I did my whole I-found-a-new-sci-fi-author-to-love happy dance, something that I honestly don’t do too much in this genre (I’m very, very picky.) But I was also super happy for another...
