When I am sleepy, as seldom as that is, I have a struggle. Once I lay on my left side, my right brain becomes as fluid as coffee. A stream of thoughts images and plots pour into the carafe that must be residing in my left brain. The horizontal coffeemaker once again stirs me out of bed where I write down the stream of consciousness before it cools.
I had a little book, it was the merest thought, the merest character until it blossomed into a full-fledged idea and a full fledged story.
I said I would be working on a new genre and I am happy to announce I am well into the story and I am very excited about the characters and their interactions.
I started with one type of book in mind and took it up a notch. I am so glad I did. These characters had so much more going for them than I at first imagined. I do love when a character shakes me up and says “Hey Listen!”
I am listening Dolcey, I am listening. Hurry up and tell me what I need to know. Hiram needs to get his story out too.
Don’t worry Hiram, I have you started too. Hold on, hold on, you are about to be set free. Keep feeding me your backstory. I am listening.
Two strong characters with a lot of appeal coming soon. Oh, what a time to be writing!
Goodreads is a site I go to on a regular basis. Both as an author with books listed and as a reader with reviews showing. I created my account before I became an author and I write under a pseudonym so I didn’t think to check and see if my book was up there. Then one day I checked. It was there! I had to make a new account to attach it to the author page. From there, it was a race to learn as fast as possible how to make Goodreads a good fit for me. Me the author, not me the reviewer.

I was so honored to be asked by Yvonne Mason to be on her online radio program. She is a mystery/thriller writer in her own right, and I was excited to say yes. I am starting her book The Mad Hatter this evening and I can’t wait.
The hour-long event was so fun. Once I put my nerves aside. I am not the most outgoing person, but I am in line for the most talkative award. The interview was about my writing as Sojourner McConnell and I was able to share the story behind The Path of the Child. I was also able to discuss Mystery Thriller Week and my WIPs .
