Authors and editors, lend me your ears: I read a lot. I love books, and I love stories. Now, before I get into the following rant, let’s get something straight. I am not perfect. I have my strengths and weaknesses as an author. As an editing team, Emma and I never catch every problem. We […]

Rather a lot more excitement around here yesterday than I’d really like; major storms, power out for 8 hours. Parts of town STILL have no power after 14+ hours. /wince One good thing did come of it, however. My children will never again mock me when I tell them they had better get their phones […]

Um, Canada?

by megsilver on July 6, 2015

Lots of progress last week. Cross your fingers that continues this week. And damn, Canada… Is the entire country on fire or something? Y’all’s smoke is killing my eyes. (I can’t even imagine what it must be like up there, seeing how things have been all the way down here.) Anyway, happy Monday! Have a […]

Okay, so the good news: I have 49 whole minutes remaining in the office today. The bad news: I think I had a TOTAL of 49 minutes to work on writing-related things last week. I promise things will slow down after this week, and that we’ll make progress. I’m sorry Pressure is taking so long. […]

Long Strange Vacation

by megsilver on April 6, 2015

So I forced myself to take an entire three-day weekend off; Mostly because Mr. Silver was home, but also because I had those days off from das day job, and I can’t even remember the last time I wasn’t working at one job or other. The vacation itself felt great — lots of cleaning, laundry, […]

This will be my view for much of the day due to the extreme amount of revisions ahead. Please no one be the least bit interesting today because as soon as the boys get home from school, it’s off to the races again… Facebook Twitter Google+ LinkedIn

Not-That-Wild West

You may have noticed the lack of posting around here. I’m sorry about that. With Mr. Silver on the road, I am stretched thinner than a photo-shopped model. Here’s a short list of updates: The New Girl AUDIO is complete and should start popping up next weekend-ish. Thank you Audrey! Das Editor gifted me with […]

by megsilver on December 29, 2014

Monday! Ouch! I hope everyone’s having a great holiday season so far; busy as heck, here, but fun, and lovely to see family and friends. REMINDER: December’s giveaway ends tomorrow. And wish me luck. Alpha feedback to go over, lots of stuff to revise for beta, and about three and half minutes to complete it. […]
