Johnny Depp is doing a vampire movie!

Mostly, I don't care a lot about actors and celebrity stuff. But something about Johnny Depp always draws my attention (yeah, it's probably just the obvious). And now he's going to do a movie version of Dark Shadows. Holy crappola. Talk about an excellent vampire. I can't wait.

My New Author Website is Up!

Yay! My wonderful web designer, Shelley Kay of Web Crafters, launched my new website today!

It's got excerpts from all my books/stories (under my own name and my pen name), all my interviews, reviews, and stuff about me. I'll be adding more sections as time goes by.

I think she did an AWESOME job.

Yay! (It's hard to dance and type at the same time.)

Email Workshop: Healing Through Writing

Would you like to explore your inner world in the privacy of your own home?

Is counseling not in your budget right now?

Are you a writer wishing to expand your characters' emotional depth?

Are you interested in exploring inner action versus outer action?

Would you like to know more about yourself?

You'll enjoy my Email Workshop!

This workshop is for anyone who wishes to uncover the roots of old patterns, to explore limiting beliefs, and to make conscious new decisions about the present and the future.

Writing experience is not required or necessary. All that is needed is a desire to learn about yourself and a willingness to grow. This is an opportunity for you to participate in a powerful workshop in the privacy of your own home. It is also a wonderful way to explore personal psychotherapy without having to come to my office!

Here's the link for additional information:

Ah, The Challenges of Summer

It's probably weird for someone born in the Summer (August -- I'm a Leo) to dislike it. Mostly, it's the heat thing. When the temperature gets warmer than about 75, I'm a slug.

I'm blissful when the weather changes every few days (Boulder has so much relentless sunshine!), and the temperature stays between 50-70. I'm sure moving to a cooler environment is in my future.

I used to force myself to roast outside in my bathing suit (I haven't owned one in 20 years), in a futile effort to tan my vampire-white body (another clue to my bloodsucker fixation). I never got tan. I only got emergency-room-level burned and madly freckled. And very sick. Even now, if I take a walk outside in the summer (wearing my wide-brimmed hat and long sleeves) between 11 and 6, I feel like crap. Of course, I've learned not to do that. I used to belong to a health club with an indoor running/walking track. Heaven. But they raised their rates so high that I had to make a new plan.

My business slows in the summer, too. Another yuck factor.

But the upside of that is I have lots of time to work on book #2 and to go through the galleys for book #1 I just got yesterday. What a hoot to see what the pages will actually look like.

So, this year I have more reasons than usual to count the days 'til Fall!
