Okay so it looks like I fell off the planet. Promise - I'm still here. The last four years have been ... hard. There's no other word for it. Everything is fine. I'm fine, but I've been the caregiver of my mom who has Dementia. Between her needs, work, etc I seem to have lost control of my time. I am still writing and am trying hard to get back to my blog.

In case you weren't aware Phaze and HSWF which where under the Mundania Umbrella have closed. I was smart enough to get my titles back before all this happened. I'm happy to say the three books I sold to HSWF have been picked up by Melange Books and are available through their Satin Books imprint. I have even sold a new title to them called Magical Quest due out in 2022

I have also been lucky enough to find a publisher for my Vespian Way series. I'm now with Blushing Books under the name of Bethany Drake. I have five titles out with them right now and am close to submitting two more. There's Desire's Destiny, Desire's Duty and Desire's Promise. Then there is two in my werewolf series, Tears of the Queen and Legend of the Tears. I have just finished the rough draft of the third book in the series and have plans for a fourth one the moment I submit it.

I'll probably still be sporadic here on the blog. Unless I win the lottery and can hire someone to help me I can't avoid it, but know I'm still here still working hard in the background and am hoping to do better at keeping my blog alive.

It's Friday...

I love the weekend. It gives me more time to write...but I need to clean...I put my laptop on my lap and open my WIP's and do my best to ignore the dishes calling me from the sink. They can get as loud as my characters in my books - the characters sit on my shoulder and let me know when they are annoyed with me because I haven't written enough that day. So I play the game of who I can ignore the longest.

teaching myself how to use this blog

Been working on my writing like a good little girl but have also been playing with the blog site - it's been fun learning how to use this thing - posted all my covers just a few minutes ago. Must say I did a pretty good job of it. ;-)

My very first blog

tink, tink tink, tink...anyone out there? Probably not since I just started this. As the title says I have all this stuff in my head and this should be the perfect place for me to post. As a writer and an editor I will post about writing. I live and breathe it. I do promise to try to make my posts interesting, maybe even humorous. Hope you enjoy my little ramblings.
