Boring Series Update

There's nothing more boring than having to write a blog about the status of the series. Maybe I'll add a fun video . . . YES! Great idea. First: Series update I have been fortunate in the editing department as well as the interest department. Right now all I can say is that I believe the first season of The Queen's Wife will likely begin sooner than later! However, I don't have exact dates yet. I might try and push for the summer, maybe a May/June kick-off, so y'all have something fun to read during the long hours of the day. Worse case scenario - we will kick-off in September. One year late,...

It's a work day! Yay! Wake up really really early to the romantic sound of the dog repeatedly licking his bum. 2. Realize that both you and your wife are coming down with some unknown sickness. (Since wifey is a teacher, it could be any nasty bug that young children have created in their homes with the sole purpose of coming to school to spread it to unsuspecting teachers and their spouses.) 3.

America’s Next Audio Book Idol

I'm debating the idea of releasing each episode of the Queen's Wife as a podcast (along with the eBook formats). Although I'm not sure I'll do it, I have had a grand time practicing. Because of my love for music, it just so happens I have all of the software needed to create a stellar podcast. At first I dappled with GarageBand (provided on most mac computers). It didn't take long before I got bored with it and discovered it doesn't quite meet my needs for an audio book podcast. My main problem is the length of the recordings. GarageBand doesn't seem too happy with my length. I'm sure there's a way to fix this,...

Pesky Website Due Dilligence

If I were you, I'd ignore this post. Why? Because it is sure to be a snoozer. For the daring souls who signed up to receive the Queen's Wife series via email (THANK YOU!) I have changed over my mailing list provider. This is all in anticipation of the series being almost ready to head out into the real world. If you receive an email regarding your subscription, or a confirmation of your subscription, fear not. It's just the new system parsing in the previous subscribers. In the meantime, stay tuned for the series to hit off. Hopefully it will all be ready in time for some spring excitement...
