THE SHIFTER’S CHOICE and ALPHA RISING available now in paperback

Praise for THE SHIFTER’S CHOICE:

  • “The second military romantic fantasy is an enjoyable Beauty and The Beast tale due mostly to the sergeant’s unique disorder enhanced by his fear of what signing means to him, and his sign language instructor’s reaction to his condition. Although the vampire subplot adds suspense, the relationship between the leads (and them to Mac and Brianna) make for an engaging paranormal drama.”Reviewer, Harriet Klausner

 

  • “Jenna Kernan had numerous difficulties develop in their lives, where I often never knew what the final outcome was going to be until the final second. What takes place near the end of the story really made my heart race from all the uncertainty, yet everything concludes in a most satisfactory way. THE SHIFTER’S CHOICE is emotionally moving plus extraordinarily unique.”A. Richards, CataRomance review

Unclutter Your Workspace 1-2-3

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015
Before, my desk is buried.

After.  Look...a work space!

After. Look…a work space!

I love a clean welcoming workspace as much as the next gal. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I’m busy and so my desk is often a dumping ground for everything paper and a very odd assortment of miscellaneous stuff. I admit this never happens all at once but one random object at a time. This latest hoe-out included ear buds, a contract revision and some work related Christmas gifts.  Here is the thing, if my space is cluttered, I’m not happy because energy, creative or otherwise, is not flowing.

But I’ve got deadlines to meet, books to complete and words to write before I sleep. Still, I can’t stand it anymore. So here are three tips I use to unclutter and boost creative energy.

Get It Clean

  1. Set a Timer. This comes from my friend Liz Matis. Give yourself a time limit to motivate you to keep moving and prevent you from using the cleaning as an excuse to keep from writing. That way you won’t feel like you have a clean space but a zero word count.
  2. Begin with Trash. What can you throw out? If you don’t want or need it, get rid of it.
  3. Put it Away. Put it where it belongs or make a place for it.

Keep It Clean

  1. Handle Paper Only Once. Open the mail over the garbage. Chuck it if you can. File it if you can’t. Pay it if you must.
  2. Don’t Put That There. Clean spaces are so attractive and that is why they draw whatever crap you have in your hands. You must resist energy pull of a clean surface. That space is for working, not storage. So take the 30 extra seconds required to put it away where it belongs!
  3. Reset. Enjoy your workspace but remember that everything has a place. So put it there when you are done with it.

Good luck with your own desk decluttering. I hope the process proves rewarding and an energy booster to your creative endeavors.



Werewolves Use Sign Language

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014
I love you.  American Sign Language

I love you. American Sign Language

My newest release, THE SHIFTER’S CHOICE, is out this week!  My hero is a shapeshifting Marine who cannot return to his human form.  His supervisors want him to learn sign-language to help him communicate but Johnny sees that as an admission that he will never be human again.

Now what you don’t know, can’t know from the story, is that I once learned sign language in order to communicate with deaf athletes competing in the World Games for the Deaf.  At first I was pretty bad, but the athletes and supervisors were very patient.  Each night I went to bed with a headache from trying so hard to understand what was said.  I was in another world.  The dorms had fire alarms that both sounded and had flashing lights.  I watched the deaf hold conversations through car windows while riding in separate vehicles traveling at 60 miles an hour.  “They’re stopping for food at the next exit.”  I knew I was starting to ‘get it’ when I had my first dream completely in sign language.  My crowning moment was toward the end of our competition when the director brought two hearing people over to me and asked me to translate what he signed–and I did!  Unfortunately I no longer dream in sign and I’ve lost most of what I learned.  But I’ll never forget my month among the deaf community.
