Colorado author of historical and contemporary Western romance Leslee Breene is my guest tomorrow. Can you change horses in the middle of the (writing) stream? See what Leslee says about that.
Coloradoan Laura DiSilverio's upcoming new mystery release, Die Buying, features a female mall cop as the protagonist. You can read the first chapter here. Laura will be my guest blogger on August 4th.
Something Beautiful and Clever
Writerly friend Jean (also Colorado) blogs at Two Old Horses and Me. Take at look at her post, Mosaic Bird Houses, and be amazed at the beautiful and clever creations Jean's sister is designing and building. There's a sweet birdie story too.
Advising Baby Deer
Another Colorado writer friend is Kathleen who blogs at Retired in the Rockies. She gets to see a lot of wildlife where she lives. Here's her advice to the baby deer she recently spotted in her yard.
What I'm Working On
My novel revisions turned into a rewrite, but I'm working every day now.
My muse finally showed up. She's a lazy one and often takes weeks off at a time, but when she's here, she's very good at solving problems and coming up with new ideas. I've enticed her to stay awhile by promising her all the coffee and chocolate she wants. I had to cut off her wine consumption...nothing worse than a tipsy muse.
I have one of these Cuisinart ice cream makers (sort of like the $59.95 model shown here) and it makes the most outstanding frozen yogurt. You just need enough room in your freezer to freeze the container in which the mixture churns.
One of my favorite versions uses plain nonfat yogurt, a little milk (or soy or almond milk, whatever), a little sugar, and those big dark sweet cherries that are so delicious right now. I squish some of them up in blender with the rest of the ingredients, but add about a half cup of cherry halves (minus the pits of course) right at the end of the churning time. Incredibly delicious.
