Mothers’ Day Gift Idea

Have you thought about what you’re going to get your mother for Mother’s Day, or what you want your husband to get you for Mother’s Day?

Flowers are a popular gift. They’re beautiful. And, they smell good. Getting flowers always makes me happy. But, flowers wilt and eventually die.

Chocolate is one of my favorite things on earth. I crave chocolate. My favorite is dark chocolate filled with caramel. YUM. But, as they say, once on the lips, forever…

May I suggest something sparkly this Mother’s Day? How about…

…some Jewels?

My First Book Signing

I had my first book signing on Saturday at Bethany Book Room for the paperback release of Sapphire Ice. It was so much fun. I was incredibly apprehensive leading up to it, but I am not a “small talk” kind of person. I’m great in a chat room or an instant message window – but not at networking and socializing. So, going into it was a little bit nerve wracking. Until that morning when I sought strength and found this verse:

I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Christian Fiction Book Review

As we come to the end of three weeks on sale, I’m beginning to think that me, this unknown and unrepresented author, may actually be able to do this thing with these books.

Things I’ve Learned This Week

This week was my first full week totally focused on this new venture as an “official” novelist. I’m working on my trilogy, focusing this week on the first one (Sapphire Ice) and the third one (Topaz Heat). Sapphire publishes this month. I’ve been working on final edits, getting feedback from a set of beta readers, writing the blurb, and working with the cover artist. Gregg has been researching how to publish it and all of the details and nuances involved within that big giant convoluted world (he sends me technical articles in emails titled, “Stuff I Read So That You Don’t Have To” — and when I skim through them I’m reminded of how much I love and adore my husband), and tweaking this blog.

On Topaz, I’ve been filling in the holes after the first draft, re-writing chapters, and fluffing out thoughts and feelings in scenes. I could do that all day long, really. I love writing.

I’ve also been trying to create a web presence as Hallee Bridgeman, Novelist, as opposed to Hallee the Homemaker. Which requires reading and commenting on author blogs as opposed to homemaker blogs, working the Facebook and Twitter scene as Hallee Bridgeman instead of Hallee the Homemaker, and learning how Google+ operates.

I’ve learned a few things this week:
