A Little Late but Still Thankful

This year Thanksgiving somehow snuck up on me. (Yes, snuck is a real word) I mean, I knew it was coming and everything, but one minute I had time to do things and then all of a sudden, I didn’t. And I forgot all about my Thanksgiving post!

To be honest, I’ve just had too many things on my mind. The biggest, most important of those things is that my oldest daughter is having surgery on Monday. It’s scary. Because of the physical limitations (pain, kidney damage, other things) the cause of the surgery placed on her, she was fired from her job. Now her employer isn’t cooperating with EDD and is likely to contest my daughter’s unemployment claim. She has no income right now, has not been able to look for a new job because of her physical condition and upcoming surgery, and will probably have at least two weeks of recovery before being able to look for work again. The whole situation is worrying, to say the least.

On a more positive note, the new paperback edition of Bronze in in final formatting mode and should be available soon with the e-book following right after. I’m excited to say that the e-book will have a brand new cover, possibly the paperback too. I’m keeping my hardback cover and will continue that theme through the series with the hardback releases, but will have alternate covers for at least the e-books. I can’t wait to see what my designer comes up with!

Copper is in good shape and I’m working on it every day, but I still can’t give a finish date. I refuse to rush it. All I can say is, it’s almost finished. Really. Please hang in there with me. And I promise the third book won’t take anywhere near as long to release.

I’m also going to be working on some Glister related short stories that I plan to offer as free downloads. If you’ve read Bronze, who would you like a story about?

So what am I thankful for this year? Everything!

I’m most thankful for my wonderful family: my son and daughters, my daughter-in-law and grandson and new granddaughter on the way (so exciting!), my oldest daughter’s boyfriend and his family, who have embraced her and by extension us as a part of their family.

I’m thankful for my eighty-year-young aunt, my only other relative in this country, healthy and still working in Hollywood.

I’m thankful for my incredible friends, a couple of whom I’ve known almost all my life. Thank you for ALWAYS being there!

I’m thankful for my job and my wonderful students. There are aspects of my work that have been extremely difficult this year, but for the most part I still get up on work days looking forward to seeing and working with my students and excited for what we can accomplish.

I’m thankful for my new apartment. I’ve been here almost a year now and it’s been the best place I’ve lived in a really long time. It’s small but reasonably priced (for the Bay Area), in a nice community (with security) and relatively quiet (which is a HUGE issue for me.)

I’m thankful to have lost some significant weight this past year, which I’ll probably write about in a post in the New Year. I’m feeling better and healthier than I have in many years.

I’m also thankful for this writing journey I’m on, and for all of you who are coming along with me. I get discouraged sometimes, doubtful of the value in what I’m doing, and wondering what the heck was I thinking when I started this. But all I have to do is think of some of you who have been so kind to me and my book, read over some of the reviews, and it pumps me up again.

So thank you! I hope to get to know more of you in the coming year.

It’s my Thanksgiving post tradition to include a Switchfoot video, so here you go. Have a great weekend!

Writing: Copper.

Listening: Need new music!

Reading: Crooked Kindom by Leigh Bardugo

Watching: Dr. Strange and Fantastic Beasts.

Smoothies and Book Club – A Summer Update

{Photo of one of my first smoothies on a bookshelf with some of the books I’ve bought recently}

Well I started this post before summer vacation started and look – it’s almost the middle of July!

In Glister news, I’ve been waiting on getting my laptop fixed, the one with all my heavy-duty programs on. I wasn’t able to use my USBs and for various reasons don’t have internet on it, so transferring work to upload on this computer was impossible. It’s apparently working okay now, so first up will be the new edition of Bronze in paperback and then I’ll be looking into releasing it as e-book again. I have mixed feelings about this as book theft is such a problem, but with Copper coming out as soon as I can manage it, I really want that e-book out there. I’ll also be doing Goodreads giveaways and might post chapters of both books at Wattpad and Smashwords. I’ll keep you posted.

I’m staying close to home for most of the summer, doing curriculum planning for graduate credit as well as doing my best to finish the second Glister Journals novel, Copper. So I’m very busy. I admit that I’ve been stuck for a while on the last chapters, not because I don’t know what happens at the end, but I’m not sure in what order those things happen, which affects what ties them together, which has made it difficult to focus on just writing. Earlier this year, there was a lot happening at work that adversely affected me and possible changes to my job on the horizon, both of which had me very stressed out for the last six months or so. Nothing of my doing, but I was deeply affected none the less. So that also made writing difficult to focus on. I’m not making excuses, just saying the way it is. I am making good progress now though, and all chapters are going out for final critiques.

I have no road trips planned this summer, which I’m a little sad about, but my poor little car has seen better days. I think I’m going to play it safe until I can buy a newer one. I plan on doing that next spring, if my car lasts that long without needing major repair. Poor thing’s over ten years old and has over 200,000 miles – almost all mine! It’s been a little trooper to be sure.

The one trip I made this summer was to see my son and his family in Iowa. I had mixed feelings about the trip, but I couldn’t wait to see my son – I hadn’t seen him in two years! I hugged him tightly twice a day to make up for lost time and try to stock up a bit for the future. And I hadn’t seen my little grandson since last summer. I’m not sure whether he actually remembered me, but he seemed happy enough to have me around. But I’m not a fan of flying and Iowa and I have a little history together. They’re not the best memories. The trip was nice though – just relaxing most of the time. They live in a very nice small north Iowa town where there’s not much to do, but the time seemed to fly anyway.

I was interested in exploring SE Minnesota and loved the area around Rochester and especially Chatfield, but didn’t have an opportunity to really investigate. Chatfield seems like exactly the kind of small town I’d like to eventually live near. Is anyone from around those areas? I’d love to hear your thoughts or experience concerning them. I’m thinking about retirement within the next ten years and certainly can’t afford to retire here in the Bay Area. So I’m looking for alternatives. Somewhere I can buy a decent home in a quiet neighborhood with a low mortgage, maybe even a small farm – for horses, of course. It’ll be the first (and probably last) home I’ve ever owned, so I’m rather looking forward to it!

{a picture of Chatfield, Minnesota, an old fashioned-looking small town. Not my photo.}

The other things I’m working on (in the sense of actually employing them in daily life) are life hacks. It seems like most things should be easier now at my age, but I still struggle with a lot of things, many because I’m autistic, but also just because I’m me! My two favorite discoveries so far this summer are making my own smoothies, which I’ll mention again in a future post, and joining a book club, which I’ve never done before. I have a slow processing speed for some things, including reading, and know I can’t keep up with most other people, but thought I’d give it a go for the summer weeks.

Is anyone else in the Modern Mrs. Darcy Summer Reading Club? I’ve been following her book posts for a few years. This is her first club (I think), and I’ve really been enjoying it. She chose five books for the summer weeks that I’d never heard of and probably never would have read otherwise. Since I have a very eclectic taste in books, it’s been a real treat. Each book’s reading time is culminated with a webinar and live feed, but conversation is ongoing on a Facebook group. The first webinar was really interesting. So far we’ve read One In A Million Boy and The Nest, both of which I enjoyed for different reasons. We’re reading Everyone Brave Is Forgiven right now, which I’m not sold on yet. It’s hanging in the balance. I may ditch it and sneak in a book of my own choice until we’re on to the next one.

One In A Million Boy – From the acclaimed author of When We Were the Kennedys and Any Bitter Thing, the incandescent story of a 104-year-old woman and the sweet, strange young boy assigned to help her around the house—a friendship with unexpected reverberations for the boy’s unmoored family.

I LOVE this book. It’s difficult to describe and not like anything I’ve read before, but it’s beautifully written with many quote-worthy passages and very memorable characters. I admit I got behind in reading this one and still need to finish it, but it’s definitely one to enjoy the journey, not race to the end, so I know I’ll be able to pick it back up and finish at my leisure.

The Nest – A warm, funny and acutely perceptive debut novel about four adult siblings and the fate of the shared inheritance that has shaped their choices and their lives.

Every family has its problems. But even among the most troubled, the Plumb family stands out as spectacularly dysfunctional. Years of simmering tensions finally reach a breaking point on an unseasonably cold afternoon in New York City as Melody, Beatrice, and Jack Plumb gather to confront their charismatic and reckless older brother, Leo, freshly released from rehab. Months earlier, an inebriated Leo got behind the wheel of a car with a nineteen-year-old waitress as his passenger. The ensuing accident has endangered the Plumbs joint trust fund, “The Nest,” which they are months away from finally receiving. Meant by their deceased father to be a modest mid-life supplement, the Plumb siblings have watched The Nest’s value soar along with the stock market and have been counting on the money to solve a number of self-inflicted problems.

This is a story about the power of family, the possibilities of friendship, the ways we depend upon one another and the ways we let one another down. In this tender, entertaining, and deftly written debut, Sweeney brings a remarkable cast of characters to life to illuminate what money does to relationships, what happens to our ambitions over the course of time, and the fraught yet unbreakable ties we share with those we love.

This one really surprised me. From the description (which I didn’t read before starting) and the conversation of others in the club, I didn’t think I would like this at all. Indeed, the characters are not very likable, but they are certainly very human and it’s a fascinating study. It was an extremely easy read and I finished way before the deadline. Woot!

I’ll have a giveaway for these books later. What are your favorite reads so far this summer?

Shiny New Format

If you’ve visited here before, you may notice some changes. I thought it was time for a fresh format. I’ll be tweaking things over the next few weeks. Let me know if something is out of place or doesn’t work! The Glister Journals website is getting a totally new look, so I hope to unveil that very soon.

I’ve been working through a very busy and stressful period at my job (teaching) and life in general and haven’t had much spare time or energy (and no spoons left over) to post here, but things are calming down (I think) and I hope to get back to at least one post per month, as well as book updates.

The new edition of Bronze is finished and being prepared for printing. It has a release date of April 13 so, if you haven’t already read Bronze but you plan on it, don’t buy the edition currently available. There’s nothing wrong with it, but I do think the new edition is a great improvement. I’m still considering making the paperback edition two books for several reasons, mostly to reach a wider audience and be more attractive for brick and mortar to stock (I can give them a bigger %) but that will require new covers which will take even longer. So I’m not completely decided about that. There will be an e-book edition soon, but I’m not sure exactly when that will be available. It might take the format of the paperback in two parts.

In the meantime, I’m slogging away at Book Two. I say slogging because these last few chapters are proving very difficult for me to write. They’re very personal in some ways, and not personal enough in others. There are things that need to happen and need to be said, but not a lot of time to do and say them. I’m trying to be concise without the ending feeling completely rushed. And I need to do some fact-checking, but finding the right people to do it with is very difficult.

Anyway, things are moving forward. Thank you for your patience!

An Update and Survey Results

This last weekend was the end of my second week of summer vacation (for those who don’t know, I’m a teacher) and so far, so good. The first week I finally completed the revision for the new edition of Bronze, and this week the hard edit was completed. Now for one last go through and fix any formatting issues and into the mail it goes. Sort of.

In the meantime, my little family is experiencing major changes which are exciting and unnerving and may prove to be very distracting. I don’t talk much about my personal life, both for my own and my children’s privacy, and for reasons I won’t go into here or now. But stuff is happening. And if you know anything about autism, you will understand. The executive functions involved alone – for all of us – are extremely challenging.

My Oldest Child, my son, is in Iowa interviewing for a job. This may seem like no big deal, but it is. It’s huge. My daughter-in-law and grandson are in Washington (state) and I was going up this summer to visit, as I usually do. But if he gets the job, he’ll probably stay there, in which case I’ll go up to Washington anyway to help his wife pack and get ready to move. I’m praying I get to see him one way or another. Washington is quite a drive, but it’s always been do-able, at least once a year. Iowa is not do-able and if they move it’ll feel like he’s moved to the other side of the planet. But I want him to get the job. It’s a chance for them to really get on their feet. Thank goodness for Skype.

At the other extreme is my Youngest Child, who has been my roommate since she turned eighteen, many years ago, and who has never been able to move out on her own before. She wants to “adult” on her own, which is understandable, and I want that for her too, but she simply hasn’t been able to afford the ridiculous rents here in the Bay Area. Now she has found a place through a friend – a room in a shared house within reach of her job – that seems like it will be very good for her. I’m excited for her. And already dreading loneliness. I’ve never lived completely alone before. I’m afraid I’ll start talking to myself even more than I already do. I’m hoping she leaves me the cat.

Today she’s starting to pack her things. Lots of things. This requires a new playlist, so she enlisted my help. It’s gratifying to be so useful. She wanted something funky. I went retro and turned her onto The Isley Brothers and Chaka Khan. That led to all kinds of great stuff. We jammin’.

My Middle Child recently started a new job in San Francisco and is already general manager. She loves working there and it’s much better than where she was working before, but it doesn’t mean she earns a lot. And she currently lives in a relatively bad part of one of the most dangerous cities in America. We want her to move. We want her to move years ago. (Yes, that was meant to be present tense.) She looked at two apartments on Saturday. One didn’t call back. Their loss. The other is a new building with income restrictions. She earns too much for this place, yet can’t afford any other decent place to live. Plus they don’t take cats anyway. That’s just not acceptable. I’ll be haunting Craigslist this summer.

So I’m praying all three can move this summer, for very different reasons, and I’ll be somewhat “on call” to help while I can.

On the positive side, I’ll return completely to Book Two of The Glister Journals. I’m SO excited about that. Honestly, it’s almost finished, but there’s still a lot to fit into the last few chapters. As far as release dates (and the official start of the soundtrack contest), that depends on how and when the new edition of Bronze is published. More about that when I have news, one way or the other.

And in case you’re curious as to the survey results, I’m including a link to the charts.

The results are very interesting and surprised me a bit. The overwhelming majority of people (most of whom haven’t read Bronze) said they like long books, they like the present book cover, and they thought the blurb interesting enough to invite further investigation. This is very valuable and welcome information. I don’t want to waste time changing things that don’t need fixing, though I’m going to change the blurb, if nothing else. The main negative comment was that it wasn’t clear what genre of book it is. All of these considerations may not end up being my decision to make, but it’s extremely helpful and encouraging. A huge thank you to everyone who participated. The comments were extremely helpful too. It was all really good stuff.

So I hope you’re all having a great summer so far. I will continue to run my own giveaways and participate in others’ (mostly on the Blogger side), and I’ll try to be more regular with music, book, and other posts and updates.

Want some music? Of course you do! I hadn’t heard of these guys before, but I like them and the song is appropriate. Kind of. Enjoy. 🙂

Simple Things

Take tie to enjoy the simple things

I donated a copy of my novel, Bronze, to the main branch of our county library quite a while ago. I check online once in a while to see what it’s up to. It most often says “check shelves.” But quite often it shows that it’s checked out. Like today. It makes me profoundly happy. I hope they’re enjoying it. ❤️

Valentine’s Day Giveaway and Sneak Peek

romance is in the air giveaway hop
There’s a Valentine’s Day giveaway over at my Blogspot blog. The giveaway is a $25 Gift Card to buy the romance(s) of your choice.

I thought I would have my new novel, the second in The Glister Journals series, ready for release by now, but it’s almost done. And yes, there is romance. Unfortunately, the new book’s not ready to give copies away yet, but I’ll share a teaser with you.

Here’s a tiny sneak peek – just a touch of romance for Valentine’s Day. 🙂

It was darker here, but there was enough light to plainly see his face. He was standing very close and still holding my wrist as if afraid to let go.

“This is the scary part,” he said softly, staring back at me.

I had a stab of fear, wondering what he’d say next. “I—”

There was no time to say anything more and even less to formulate theories on his behavior. His gaze dropped to my mouth for a heartbeat, then he planted his own lips firmly on mine.

Another moment later, he drew slowly away.

I was stunned.  My heart had leaped to my throat the moment we had reached our dubious destination, but I wasn’t expecting this. I couldn’t grasp the fact that he had literally dragged me outside to a forbidden and relatively isolated location to—what? Kiss me? He just kissed me?

My heart thumped and skipped crazily as the reality of that sank in to my poor befuddled brain. I was speechless. My assumptions about this evening were spinning in ever widening circles.

2015 – A Look Ahead

Happy New Year everyone! This is just a quick update and look forward to 2015.

First of all, I’ve been having issues with formatting and posts (and parts of posts) disappearing from this blog, so the first thing I’ll be doing is completely reloading and reformatting here. I’m not sure how long that takes, but should have things in order before the first giveaway of the year.

Which is the second thing, yes! I will be continuing with giveaways throughout 2015. There will be regular gift card and book giveaways, of course. I’ll have a music one coming up soon. I’ll also be giving away copies of the new edition of Bronze when it’s ready and, of course, TGJ Book 2 as soon as it’s released.

The last chapters of The Glister Journals 2 are taking me some time, though I’m not sure why. It should be completely finished in the first part of this year. I am looking into different publishing options, so I’m not sure exactly how that’s happening yet. These choices could affect the cover and title, so I’m still keeping those to myself. The picture above, by the way, gives some clues to Book 2. Any ideas?

Bronze has been getting an overhaul, editing for length (shorter) and I’m considering a different cover. Any thoughts about that?

The soundtrack contest is still on and waiting to be launched. The grand prize is at $200.00 right now, though I expect to add to that soon. It will be open for entries when Book 2 is ready to get sent out for early reviews, so if you’ve read Bronze and are figuring out the songs, stay close. I’ll publicize the starting date as widely and loudly as I can! If you aren’t aware of the contest, you can read about it and find the clues here.

I expect to begin writing in earnest on Book 3 by mid to late spring.

Personally, apart from finishing writing projects, I want nothing more than to try to get fit and begin riding again. After a very long time not riding, I had a horse a few years ago, but it didn’t work out – physically or financially. My heart and brain retain my love and knowledge, but my body has lost the strength, balance, and even some of the muscle memory required to ride the way I want to. So if I can get my body back in good enough shape, especially core and leg strength and flexibility, I’ll find someone to start training with and go from there. I may never be able to actually own my own horse again, but I’ll never completely give up on wanting to ride!

What are your plans for 2015?

Surfers Healing and an update.

Hi everyone! I realize I haven’t posted for a while and figured I’d better post something to let you know I’m still here! The second Glister Journals book is still coming but has been temporarily derailed while I revise Bronze into a leaner, shorter edition. It may even be in two parts (at least the paperback version) which will allow it to be cheaper and more portable. At least, that’s the plan. The kindle version is no longer available, but the print editions will be available until the situation changes. More about that in the future. So if you haven’t read it yet, I suggest waiting until the new edition is published. The second full novel will follow as quickly as possible! If you’ve already read Bronze, don’t worry, the story and characters are exactly the same. I’ve mainly cut unnecessary words and description. The dialogue and heart of the story are still there!

If you are interested in autism spectrum disorder, especially from a female perspective, you may be interested in the more personal blog that I recently started, Lost and Found. I hope it will serve as one more positive, encouraging, and validating place for girls/women on the spectrum, who are often overlooked and left doubting everything. Still under construction, it welcomes guest posts, shared content, art, music, etc. of a positive or “this is the way it is” nature. Strictly “G” rated.

Some of you may follow The Glister Journals on Facebook, but for those who don’t, I’m going to repost today’s post here as it touches on a subject close to my heart. The Facebook page most often covers short, infrequent, and non-spammy posts of an equine or extreme sports nature and are usually completely separate from my blog posts.

More regular and book related posts are coming, I promise! For now, here’s the Facebook post:

I hope everyone’s having a great weekend! We were awoken about three in the morning by a lengthy earthquake. I hope everyone involved closer to the center are okay!

In case you’ve never heard of them, I’d like to introduce you to a couple of little-known charities I hope to be more involved with in the future. We’ll start with an awesome video from Surfers Healing. I’ll post about the other next weekend.

If you’ve read The Glister Journals: Bronze, you may (or may not) realize that the main character, Allison, is a little different from most other girls. That difference is autism spectrum disorder. For her, the traits are mild, easily overlooked unless you experience them yourself or know what to look for. For the bronc-riding, dirt-biking, skating, surfer brothers, Dave and Chris Caldera, the difference is much more profound in their littlest brother.

Surfers Healing is a non-profit founded by ex-pro surfer Izzy Paskowitz and his wife Danielle, that “seeks to enhance the lives of kids with special needs, specifically those with autism,” that teaches them to surf. The video says it all.”
