Some writer's conferences are worth attending

So, last week I attended the RWA conference in San Diego. The hotel was so cold it made me ill but I learned a lot from the presenters and attendees! Here are a couple of photos. The lady in red I'm standing next to is the famous and fabulous author Nora Roberts. 
The one I am sitting next to was my wonderful roommate.

After doing some edits to VIRGINS I will be ready to publish and the date I am setting for publication is 7/29. I will most likely offer VIRGINS for free to my followers.

Virgins - alternate tillite - Kicked Out Of Heaven

Hi friends, I thank you all for your support from the bottom of my heart. I have completed my book Virgins - the first book of my Sylphs - beings without a soul - Paranormal/Fantasy Series. I will be posting the first few pages in the next few days right here and on my blog and on my Facebook page for Virgins https://www.facebook.com/Virgins.web/

Slugging on blogging

It's not so much that I have a full plate, and not just with food. It's not that I am a social media (sm) glutton - Facebook, Twitter, Google, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Stumbleupon (forgot one or two?) I might engage in some more than others but gosh, golly, gee what the heck and whatnot. 
I am actually writing and submitting a lot!
But this whole media thing is like the biggest boomer, hippie, flower child, gossip circle, club, and what-have-you, and with millions online someone is always posting.
A woman said, not long ago, "social media is evil." "Well," I said, "you mean like when TV, phone, cars and airplanes first started?  Should we go back to smoke signals or?" I think her husband uses sm for porn; who knows.
The very next thing I will blog will be, I hope, is to announce the publishing of my book! Drum roll anyone???

I wish you all a happy 4th of July; stay safe and grateful to be safe.

Women Rise

Our wombs thunder
with spirits of steel
a steady pace and hunger
for healing.

The stars,
our hallowed ground,
call us to fight
with tender hearts
and wise minds.

From priestess
to prostitute, sacred all,
made to conceive
not be torn apart.

We must rise
against edicts that imprison
lies and pass evils
from dark to light.
