New blog

I started a new blog for aspiring authors--

It will have postings of helpful articles for new and aspiring authors plus interviews and guest blogs from published authors.

Long time, no blog

I've been hard at it writing books. I just (mostly) finished up The Gathering to turn in later this week, ending a four-book marathon writing spree that started in July. Four 100K books written over seven and a half months. Less than two months per book, yes.

My own fault because I leapt at opporunities (that were good opportunities!), but they all happened at once. Life is like that--you get a huge plateful of things or nothing at all. It goes in cycles. The trick is to learn to enjoy both the plateful and the dearth (hint, sleep during the dearth).

After I turn in this book I'm going to write a novella and another short book as Allyson James, then take a nap.

I heard that I'll be doing a couple workshops at RWA Nationals this year: one with my editor Leah Hultenschmidt on "Title and Premise" a workshop we did at Desert Dreams last year, and one panel of authors and editors talking about world building. The last Nationals I went to was in Dallas and this year is Dallas--at least I know where the restaurants are downtown!

The first three Immortals books are up on Amazon now! I've put links to each at

Deep breath. Relax.......

Immortals on B&

I was excited to see that Barnes & just put up pages where you can pre-order The Calling by Jennifer Ashley and The Darkening by Robin Popp. Neat! The pub dates are actually May 1 and May 28 respectively, not what it says on the pages. I also saw them at Books-a-Million online.

Go here for The Calling

Go here for The Darkening

It's "realer" when they books go up. It's getting exciting. I've proofread The Calling already, and I hear those ARCs should be ready to go out soon.
