Well, hello

Long time no post, I know. Usually, when it comes down to a choice between posting and writing on works in progress, I choose the writing. I have several thousand words written on one nonfiction book, have almost finished another, and could easily finish up a novella by January if I really set my mind to it. But as it happens, what I really need right now is a new short story or some flash fiction. Calling all muses....

It's been a busy few weeks on the non-writing front as well. Our dog has been to the vet twice in the last three weeks, for two different issues. First, she had an eye infection. Then she developed an infection in a salivary gland. This last visit, plus antibiotics, came to $90.00. Ouch. But we're just glad she's otherwise in good health, because it could have been something so much worse than a couple of infections, which are treatable. We're hugging our dog and counting our blessings.

I'm debating putting out a couple of my older short stories that I've published in mini book form for Pookatales Press as downloadable e-stories. I could post a teaser of the first part of a story, then offer the whole thing for download for a small fee via PayPal. This might just help pay for the vet bill. I also have a retold faerytale in novella form that I could offer that way as well. It's called "Name of Power," and is a fantasy romance retelling of "Rumplestiltskin," with a twist.

I haven't made a decision yet, but it's a thought....
