Okay. Now back to our regularly scheduled program

I launched my new web site/slog -- a web site blog.

I'm not sure if it'll fly or not. I think there are still some kinks to work out. But after three days of transferring files, I think it's Good Enough.

That's an important distinction to make. It ain't perfect and I know it, but for now, it'll do. Someday (I know, I know: roll your eyes) someday I'll go ahead and have a pro design a web site for me. Someday I won't listen to my spouse when he says, "why don't you just ..." And Someday... well, you get the idea.

Anyway, there it is: Poke at it and tell me if it's broken. If it is, I'll try to fix it. And stay tuned. It will probably change, and often. I find I enjoy tweaking things like web sites, blogs, etc.

No, no! Back to writing!

Pretend this is a web site

As you can tell, I still don't have a real web site yet. I'm getting bids from various designers, but it looks like it will be at least a month or so before I get something up and running. I am not in panic mode. Let's face it, I'm blogging here, there and everywhere a lot, I have this space to announce Stuff, and I'm not Nora and don't have adoring fans screaming for information about me (whew). So hang tight and a web site will appear someday.

Until then: minor news. I'm teaching a class in the Twin Cities. Come on out and join me: .Trust me: we'll have a lot of fun and you'll learn something. Win-win!

Here it is! My latest book

Yep, the last book in the New Human series is here. Right here in digital and right here in print. In another week or so it will be on Amazon.

This book concludes Dru and Jak's story that was started in Living Proof. In Leap, they have to save the New Humans, deal with a plot to overthrow the government and figure out how to introduce the human/machine 'blends' into the population.

Oh. And Dru needs to figure out how to trust Jak again.

It's going to take a leap of faith to make it all work.

I'm starting to like this ...

I like the idea of a streamlined blog. Not necessarily the way my blog looks as a web site. But I'm experimenting with some templates and some ideas. I think I'll stick with using a blog to update my web site. No more Front Page for me!

In the new for this week: a new release. Yepper, a book comes out on Friday. So I'll be back then with release news. Until then, I'm going to try to figure how to link to files in Google Docs. If I can figure that out, I may be able to use Google as my web site. I'm trying to figure that out in between writing the new book, submitting edits for 2 books, researching doing some self-publishing, working full-time and ...

Yep. Someday I'll have all the time in the world. Just not this week....
