Romance (a vlog)

I felt an explanation was due regarding my comment on the genre of Romance (On Writing Erotica) and why I don’t read it. This was originally intended as a blog and after reading the draft, I felt a video would better convey what I was trying to express. I hope you enjoy this video – it will be the last vlog for the month of February!

[So sorry guys. There were technical difficulties with YouTube and I had to re-upload and redo the edits. Boo. As I mention in the video, I have new editing software and I can’t wait to start using it.]

Read what makes you happy. Always.

What’s Your Sign? + Vlog, Bonus Tarot Reading for Scorpios

Hey y’all!

I got a new camcorder and I’m taking it for a test drive.

After I dropped the fact that I read tarot cards in my last vlog (22:10) a common question was, “What’s your sign?” Enjoy!

Also, I’m providing a collective tarot reading to my fellow Scorpios. I hope you love this reading as much as I did! Only a Scorpio reading could be this intense.

Vlog: Your Questions Answered – Electric Boogaloo!

You guys! THANK YOU for the overwhelming response to my first vlog! I am determined to make a vlog once a month based on the responses to that first video. So long as the interest is there, I will do my best to meet that interest.

I will address the erotica questions in another vlog – those questions warrant a video all on their own.

Please like, share, and subscribe. Be it WordPress, YouTube, Twitter, or LinkedIn, it is all helpful to me and I GREATLY appreciate it.

Take care, y’all.

Vlog: Thank You & Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Thank you to all my subscribers, followers, and supporters. I vlogged your top 10 questions that I get as an author and as someone who willfully puts herself out there online. Why tho’? LOL!!!

Your top 10 questions answered:

I forgot the 10th question!!! “Do you REALLY drink that much coffee?” Answer: Yes. But I also drink 120 ounces of water daily. I’d like to think I balance it all out.
