Hello all!

A lot has happened since I checked in with you guys. First and foremost, we moved into our new Snowheresville, WY cabin as I mentioned a few weeks ago. Secondly, my mind was blown at my first Novelists, Inc. conference. Third, we moved back to Nowheresville, TX. And finally, we had a flurry of rental requests, so I put our two unrented houses up on Air BnB, and BAM Snowheresville rented out for October, November, December, and into January! It is that super cool, and we’re getting a ton of early requests for summer dates, which we’ll be very, very selective on, as most of the summer we’ll live there. In that spirit, though, I’m sharing it with you here:




And because Nowheresville rented out for Thanksgiving and all last summer, we decided, WHAT THE HECK, let’s offer it “officially,” too. Again, dates are selective, but it is available for the Round Top fall antique show, and has four bedrooms and an office that converts to a fifth. What a fantastic girls trip. Antiques, Junk Gypsy Prom, Truth BBQ. Our donkeys and goats 🙂 Great for a writers retreat too.

BIG NEWS! Our first Snowheresville, WY facilitated writers retreat will be August 5-11, 2018. It will include “free” writing/inspiration time, structured coaching/critique/instructional time, and lots of support and community with the other attendees. Click HERE to claim your spot and for more information. (Readers or Artists, if you’d like to see us book a retreat for YOU, email me. I could maybe talked into August 19-25.)

On the writing front, I’m sending Stunner (Ava #2) off for copyedit this week, and Eric and I brainstormed Knockout (Ava #3), which I’ll start on Wednesday. I have an ambitious writing schedule, as I plan to digitally record and transcribe the first draft of Knockout in November, and do the same for Searching for Dime Box (Michele #3) in December. Cross your fingers as Saving Grace is being shopped to Hallmark as part of a package of movies by a producer under contract with them. We should know in the next few months. <3


I am so excited for adventures in store in 2018, not just with my renewed career plan for my writing after Novelists, Inc., but with two of our five kids getting married, time with the horses and other animals, and just the joy of being married to the world’s greatest guy.
