Pilgrims with Blades (Click for a larger picture) I was overjoyed to see the first review hit Amazon for Pilgrims with Blades: Pressed into Service. 5 stars!

Tearfully Good 10th 5-star Review for Widow Brigade

Last night, I checked through the ratings and comments on my books at Amazon and found a wonderful surprise. It wouldn’t be enough to say that The Widow Brigade now has a streak of ten 5-star reviews. Much as that alone would make me jump for joy, that doesn’t sum up what truly got to me. The reviewer introduced herself as a recent widow. She praised Duli and said she related to her more...

9th Straight 5-star, Widow Brigade

Another good review this morning…but, let’s set the scene properly. This past two weeks I have churned out dozens of pages in revisions to “Muster of Heroes”. I’ve got a lot of new fans eager to read that one. I’ve been in the mood to write   Then, despite the many good reviews, I end up catching a bad review on one of my books. Insert sad face here. I realize...

Mom is Hooked on The Widow Brigade

It was a very fun weekend for the family. I haven’t updated much because we’ve been enjoying the summer, and I entertain the boys a lot. Just today we went on a paddleboat excursion, ate at a nice grill that is normally too far of a drive for us, and went swimming at a beach for a few hours before coming home. Love having these summer adventures with my boys.   My mom and I talked...
