I did something I normally don't do. I joined a blogfest. It was L'Aussie who talked me into it. I tend to shy away from these organized blogging events because they take a great deal of time. Since I've yet to discover how to make more time, I have to be cautious with what little I do have.
But 'The Campaign' looked different. This is Rachael Harrie's brainchild. Not only is it well-organized, but she divided it into genres--which was sheer brilliance. It gave me a chance to meet new people from my specific interests.
See my nifty little badge?
I was supposed to introduce myself and post my badge over the weekend, but Greg came home after a 3-week absence and friends were visiting too. I've been more offline than on since Friday.
So here I am, late to my own party.
For those of you who don't know me. I am the author of three novels: Touch Of Fire, Apocalypse Rising, True Believers, one novella, The Devil To Pay, and another one on the way.
Career: I write primarily paranormal/fantasy, but I have been known to dabble in science fiction in an epic way. True Believers is SF and was well received in 2010. In a past life I was also a graphic designer and art director.
On the personal front: Dogs love me. (It must be the cookies.) Currently, we share our home with St. Tank and (the infamous) Iko. My husband, Greg--visits, due to the fact we live 300 miles apart. We hope to remedy that in another year.
We live on six acres in north Texas where we raise chickens, (and someday) goats. Every year I put in a large garden. If I'm not fighting off scorpions, coyotes, and snakes, life is good.
That's me in a nutshell. I hope you like this blog, and I hope you'll come back. I have a lot of loyal followers and friends and we have the BEST comments here, so don't be shy. We're all just folks here.
Welcome to fellow Campaigners and new followers! I'm looking forward to meeting you and will be stopping by this week. Don't be surprised if my regular followers follow you back to your blog when you comment. We are a very interactive bunch over here.
So let's open it up to everyone. What's new in your life? If you were in the path of Hurricane Irene, how did you fare?
