Memorial Day…So much more than a picnic

Those of us who live in freedom owe a debt to those who gave their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, so that we could enjoy the blessings of liberty. There is no way to repay this debt to those who have given so much for us and the cause of liberty here and around the globe–except by honoring their memory and their service; and by preserving their gift in our own day, and for our children down through the generations.

Thank you…

…to all those who gave their lives.
…to all those who gave their health of mind and body.
…to all those serving in the Armed Forces, answering today’s call.
…to all the families whose hearts are sorrowful with loss, or troubled with anxiety for a loved one serving in harm’s way.

You are often in my thoughts and prayers.

Easy as iPie…

I’m not exactly a tech-savant, and I tend to take a “grab it and growl” approach to learning my way around a new device or software. So, I’m very pleased to announce that this post is the first one made from my new iPad–a gift from my wonderful husband, who got a little tired of watching me struggle in airport security with my laptop. We travel quite a bit, so he had ample opportunity to see the show. It’s taking me awhile to figure it all out (and I still can’t find the games my sister has on hers), but the journey’s been fun…and traveling will be better than ever.


…to all those who came out to join me in The Romance Studios’ chat room last night, with other Decadent authors, for repartee, laughter, and prizes–free books! I was happy to see some familiar “faces” in the room, for my inaugural authors’ event. Thank you for your support!

Apparently, there were also some access issues–I heard from a couple of folks about getting bounced at the door. I was bounced the first time I tried to get into the chat, myself. I tried one browser, but got a message about Java not being enabled in my browser…? I’m just this side of a techno-peasant, but for some reason, something in the message clicked in my back brain, and I used a different browser, instead. Et voila! Just in case TRS hasn’t fired the bouncer–or if he shows up at the door to other chat rooms–I guess I need to figure out how to update Java and enable it in my browser to avoid future panic attacks on the brink of chat room appearances!

I’m very glad I made it to the chat, because that’s when I learned that “Forge” is scheduled for release on July 13th!

Thanks again for coming out to see me at TRS! And watch the Events page here for news of an upcoming “blog tour” to promote the release of “FORGE: Book I of the Thrall Web Series”!
