Quill and Paper

... and a bottle of ink.

No, you have it all wrong. This have nothing to do with the age old art of writing with a feather quill .

Taking a step away from my keyboard, after being engrossed (utterly and wholeheartedly) in the regency romance I am currently penning, my eyes wandered down to the keys of the afore mentioned keyboard. Yikes! The tops of the keys were gleaming, polished, shiny... all due to my vigorous punching away.  But, the sides of the keys...all matte and dusty.

Being the procrastinator that I am, I googled how to clean a keyboard. And, I do have to commend my fellow bloggers, there are tons and tons of articles, videos, what-have-you, regarding this particular science.

Q-tips worked not, I am sorry to say. I had no intention of buying any dedicated cleaners or solvents. What to do? Forget the whole thing and shut my eyes? (I do touch-type often, after all) No, that would not do. (Gosh, I even sound like one of my regency heroines).

I looked around and found a packet of glass wipes ( i.e. lens-wipes) and buffed my glasses. Inspiration! I folded the tissue and started sliding it along the sides of my keyboard keys. It worked, it works!!

Lesson learned: look around yourself and the answer shall show itself to you.

Happy Holidays

I hope you are all getting ready for 2015. The number does look daunting.
This is the first time I have actually written down the year (i.e. 2015), and I must say that it comes as a shock...not sure why.
I wish you all a new year that is miles better than this one that is slowly ebbing away, and that your secret dreams and wishes all come true.
Do visit my blog (and send an email or two).
I hope to have several new releases next year.
All the best and happy reading.

FYI Swords and Petals is now available.
This is the fourth book in the Gable Series

Swords and Petals - available for pre-order on Amazon

Swords and Petals is now available for pre-order on Amazon.
It will be available for purchase December 25, but pre-order now.
(It is a Kindle Unlimited Eligible book.)

(A new adventure in the Gable Series)

There were hoots in the night, but no one heard them.

Little did Kat Queen know that her stay in Gable Village would result in an unplanned visit to Amsterdam, as well as in a daydream-stopover, with the clock turned back, in medieval Gable Borough.

Trying desperately to avoid emotional entanglement, Kat helps Damon Hedley look after a couple of abandoned owlets. She stumbles upon a small package from Egypt, dated 1896, containing a bewildering malachite stone.

Are dreams and reality intertwined? Kat struggles to find out.

The peaceful vacation turns into one of mystery, thrilling time-travel, and heart-pounding romance.

A 23,000 word novella (approximately 85 printed pages)

Thanks for stopping by.

Intuition and Common Sense

If only a tiny little bell would ring in my head and say: "Hey, this is your Intuition speaking. Stop and pay attention."

It is only when things go wrong, that I realize that I had actually foreseen the situation, but had simply pushed aside the thought. That bell simply hadn't rung long enough. The ting of that bell should have been a ding-dong or a loud bong.

Therefore, my resolution of the month is:

Hey, you...listen to that tiny voice inside of you. Don’t brush it away.

Some day it could really matter.
