A Row of Ducks & Katherine Nichols

Hope everyone is well and happy! It’s hot here in Georgia. How hot is it? Well, one way of putting it might be – “it’s hotter than blue blazes,” or “You could fry an on that asphalt.” Pretty stinkin’ hot!! So glad my writing keeps me in the AC! This month, I want to continueContinue reading “A Row of Ducks & Katherine Nichols”

SIMMERED FOR FLAVOR

Thanks for sticking with me through this long, hot summer. In June, I underwent a hip replacement, which put me out of commission for a while. I’m doing well and back on track with the publication of my book, RELATIVE CONSEQUENCES. Now that I’m ambulatory, as they say, I’m actually cooking again. My poor husbandContinue reading “SIMMERED FOR FLAVOR”

“March”-ing Back in Time

Ladies and Gentlemen, Thanks for being patient with my return to blogging. It’s been an interesting Spring and now Summer. My husband and I sold our house and moved AGAIN!!! While final edits (as in professional) are being made to RELATIVE CONSEQUENCES, my upcoming book, I decided to go ahead and have hip replacement surgery.Continue reading ““March”-ing Back in Time”

Why She Writes About Women – Welcome, Amy Rivers

So, to quote a former late night television personality, “How hot is it? It’s so hot, chickens are laying hardboiled eggs.” Yep, I don’t have to tell you that it’s hot down here in Georgia. Even my pup, Bella, won’t stay outside very long. She lies in the mulch where it’s cooler on her belly forContinue reading “Why She Writes About Women – Welcome, Amy Rivers”

Part One – Interview with a Strong Southern Lady

Now don’t tell anyone, but I sometimes hate summer. I know, I know, I live in the South and you’d think I’d be used to it. Nope. I just thank God every day for air conditioning. Unfortunately, the heat has never been my friend. It not only drains me of any energy I have, butContinue reading “Part One – Interview with a Strong Southern Lady”

A June Welcome to Melanie V. Logan

Hi y’all! I had a wonderful long weekend spending Friday through Tuesday at St. Simons Island, Georgia with my husband, Mike, and our mini-Australian Shepherd, Bella. After three relaxing days of sunshine, beach, and just being lazy, I spent Monday and Tuesday soaking up knowledge which flowed from the speakers at the Southeastern Writer’s Association Conference. AsContinue reading “A June Welcome to Melanie V. Logan”

Normal is as Normal does…

June means summer, the beach, hot weather, long days, short nights, sitting outside bird watching before it warms up, and cooking as much on the grill as possible. This month I have two events to attend: my high school reunion in Decatur, Georgia and the Southeastern Writers Association (SWA) Conference. Looking forward to both forContinue reading “Normal is as Normal does…”

What Is Women’s Fiction? And Why Do You Write That?

I have been struggling with my current manuscript, finding the last third of the book to be the most difficult. Pulling it all together, grappling with endings. It’s kind of a slow and steady process, but the pain will be over sometime in June. Yes, June. I have a mental deadline. But today is blogContinue reading “What Is Women’s Fiction? And Why Do You Write That?”

Digging Deep

“A really strong woman accepts the war she went through and is enabled by her scars.” —-Carly Simon Happy May! Check out my Foxglove!! Just purchased it at Home Depot and planted it under a kitchen window so I could see it rain or shine. Didn’t even know it was a perennial! I suppose you’veContinue reading “Digging Deep”
