Now THAT’S More Like It!


I can see I need to threaten you guys more often. Even the very thought of a deluge of my poetry scared several of you into action. Hahaha. I’m going to work on my STERN face! When I finally got home today, I had emails from folks offering excerpts, and then I see that Kass jumped right in and posted one. Way to go, Kass! I’m heading there next to enjoy it, and then I’ll be helping these other folks get theirs up over the next couple of days.

So, tada! #ExcerptWeek rocks on! Don’t be left out!

Going off now to practice looking severe and threatening. Now where’s my stout stick? 😀

  1. You probably shouldn’t have given me a key to the back door, Marcia. Now you never know when I might sneak in and post something and run… 😀

    (P.S. Can I do another excerpt on Friday or Saturday? I may have a cover by then for my next book.)

    • You can’t scare me, Kass. I have access to the BDB (Big Delete Button)!!! 😀 😀 😀 And yes, you may share more excerpts between now and Sunday, though there will likely be some company each day, now. But that’s fine, too. The more good stuff we have, the more visitors we draw. (That’s my story, an’ I’m stickin’ to it!) 🙂

    • Yeah, she shivers your timbers, doesn’t she? 😀 And that’s not a dumb question. I don’t have a word limit on any posts. If they “sprawl” down the page too far, I will normally add a “Continue Reading” link after a day or so. But I trust writers to choose what they want to post as an excerpt, and so far, I haven’t had any problems. Email me at and I’ll give you the info on the two ways you can do this. 🙂

  2. Wow!. Miss Cruela indeed!
    My hands were trembling while I was preparing the excerpt that I sent your way.
    Don’t punish me, please, I was a diligent author and obeyed your request.

    • My Stern and Threatening Alter Ego likes how you think! Perfect reaction. Groveling would be good, too. 😀 But obedience is essential. (Don’t make me get out the implements of torture!!!) 😀
