About this blog


Flamenco & the Sitting Cat proposed cover.
The working cover for my new adult literary novel.

After I finished writing “Flamenco & the Sitting Cat,” a general fiction novel for adults, I queried high and low for a literary agent and/or a publishing house. 80 queries later have confirmed what any author knows: finding either ain’t easy.

Fortunately, self-publishing gets easier all the time! Best of all, self-publishing doesn’t require agents and traditional publishers.

It does, however, require that I learn to promote my own books. This blog is my exploration of how best to let people sample my writing and sensibility.

“Tango & the Sitting Cat,” the novel’s sequel, is being written!

  1. Sigh,
    I have enjoyed your posts on FB. Now that I’m retired, I have time to read your blog. Sadly, I am not sure how to follow you. I’m trying the email check box below for starters. AND turmeric works so well for aging joints, both for 2 and 4 legged species. I am trying Cod liver oil next.

    • Hi Melinda! happy retirement 🙂

      I just tried sending you a message on FB – but unfortunately FB locked up on me – FB is so buggy — will try again later

      in meantime, if you check back &/or if anyone else is curious, at top of right hand column, there’s a ‘follow’ button
