She Wore A Pretty Mask

She Wore A Pretty Mask is now available on Amazon. No novel (at least in my experience) is easy to write.  Mind you, there are the glorious days when things flow smoothly, when chapters seem to magically write themselves, but there are others (and the odds are in their favor) when it can be a real slog…when no matter how much homework you’ve done, no matter how clearly you can see the images in your head, the images stubbornly resist translation.

I’m like uber efficient… I consider myself relatively tech savvy, and was recently toying around with the idea of switching WordPress themes seeing as how mine was starting to feel a bit outdated.  Somehow, during the experimentation process, I destroyed it all in one fail swoop. Don’t ask me how.  I did it.  It’s done. So I did a fresh install and started over from scratch. Despite technical difficulties, the new site is coming along pretty fast, but I’m still slightly…
