I Have a Coin

I Have a Coin I have a coin I deem a treasure.One side bears the sign of extinction,And the other, an instance of nature.But it’s not a coin; it’s a seal,And the meaning of this distinctionIs the unbearable sadness I feelWith experience, or with closure. It seems like a double exposure,But the knowledge of impermanenceBleeds into the ideal likenessOf mortality in its eminence—To yield a vibrant pictureOf a creature’s essential brightnessAs it burns for life without censure. --Rob NeufeldSee More

Hidden Scars - Sam Blackman and Black Mountain College

I don't know if this is true for my fellow writers, but proofing can be the most difficult part of the process.  I received the ARC today for October's Sam Blackman Mystery and will begin the last review for typos or formatting errors that have eluded my editor, my copy editor, and myself.  Amazing that there is always something that the brain "fixes" and we don't see.Hope springs eternal that the October release will be typo-free.  The mystery is set against the historic backdrop of Black…See More

Rob's review of "Render Unto the Valley"

Thanks for the super review, Rob!

I highly recommend readers who have not read Senehi's novels before, that they pick up the first two books in the series; "In the Shadows of Chimney Rock" and "The Wind in the Woods". They are also terrific!

Christmas Everyday and The Girl Behind the Curtain

I need one full day at home per week to get things done. This past week being Pre-Christmas, wrapping gifts was in order. My bedroom was a disaster. It was an unholy Grinch's nightmare...and I was in heaven. I use Christmas cards from last year for gift tags, color coordinating them with the paper. The boxes that my daughters' boots came in (there are 3) were chic and didn't need wrapping, just a bow.

I had finished decorating my new artificial tree with Baby's…

Want to Publish in Literary Journals?

I put together a list of links/publishing resources to help writers research literary journals and start submitting.
