Good news for one and all!


I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time resisting a great bargain, and half the fun of a scoring a fabulous deal is telling your friends about it, so they, too, can join in the hoopla. Such is the case with the promotion going on right now where new subscribers can get half off their regular price! Using code OMG50 at checkout, you’ll get 50% off — that’s under $25 for products valued between $200-$345! How can I not use excessive bold print and exclamation points for that kind of bargain!? 


If you’re also like me, you’ve been seeing this pop up all over the internet from a lot of folks already, and I finally clicked through to see what all the fuss was about. This isn’t much ado about nothing. There are three items every box will include (Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair/RV$30, Harper+Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes in Juice Cleanse/RV$16, and Human+Kind Body Souffle/RV$18), but you’ll be able to choose from among several others including Anthropologie, Kate Spade, Baublebar, and more!!


DO at least check it out. There’s no long-term commitment, and cancellation is easy. But I’ll think you’re looney tunes if you don’t grab this deal while it’s still half off. From what I’ve read, it’s a rare offer they’re not likely to repeat anytime soon. (Be sure to forward this post to friends who might be interested, too.)



Now, on to book and blog stuff–


It is hard to believe, but For All Who Wander and its companion Journey Guide will be releasing in less than four months (January 14, 2020). It’s been almost a year since I completed the manuscript and months since I turned in my last edits, so when I finally hold this puppy in my hands, it’s going to be surreal…I already know it. It’s available for pre-order now, and I’m touched and kinda amazed when people tell me they’ve already purchased a copy.


Interestingly, there’s a lot of work that takes place during the “in between” — the time between final edits and release, and that’s one of the reasons why I’m quiet on ye olde blog. I’ve been working on a Q&A to pass along to interviewers, preparing for podcast interviews, and writing articles and content that will show up in various places online and in print.


The funniest thing to me is I’m continually interrupted with ideas for next books, and I have to stop what I’m doing RIGHT THEN and jot down all the thoughts before they escape me. I’ve currently got about five ideas going, and I wonder which one will be the first to be completed. I’m pretty sure this frenetic energy is more about procrastination for what needs to be done rather than creative overload. Still, I love it when these ideas emerge. I have resisted book writing for a long, long while because I’m not interested in simply “adding to the noise.” There are plenty of books begging for your attention and purchase, and until and unless I have something of substance and value to add, I’m perfectly content to lay low.


Speaking of my blog, look for changes over the next few months! The picture at the top of this post is from a fun photoshoot in Chattanooga a few weeks ago with my real life friend and amazingly talented photographer, Rich Smith, who captured a few looks that express my personality. It was as hot as 40 hells, I was sweating like a sailor — honestly, I changed outfits twice which required three different bras, and each time they were soaking wet — and that lovely vein in my forehead was working like a boss…and Rich just kept on coaching and encouraging me to have fun.

Wanna see a few more?


Good googlie-mooglie–there’s a mural in Chattanooga with a Christopher Walken  SNL “more cowbell” motif!




When I was younger, “Imagine” was a song our teacher had us choreograph ballet to;
to this day, it reminds me of the gift of creative expression.


Two important things: I STILL have my , and better yet,


Your turn: tell me something that’s going on in your world! Deals, creative expression, the fun stuff…or the hard, real life stuff.
I love it best when blogging is a two-way street.
