Because I think I'll post frequently and I up and disappear. It's been that kind of year. Catch-up bit below for those who don't facebook or twitter.

So now I'm here because central clearing house for Stuff I Need To Get Out There, and I mean to try to be here at least semi-regularly for just stuff instead of disappearing again, so we'll see.

First off, I have had a rash of postponements and cancellations, which means serious absence of grocery funds for cats, dog, horses, and me, so:


Between now and the 15th, we are offering discounts on:

1. CAMP LIPIZZAN, aka Horse Camp for Writers

Book and pay $200 deposit on or before the 15th and get $25 off.

Book a 4 night/5 day Camp and pay in full and get $50 off (that's one free night).

Dates available from September through May. Email me at capriole at that gmail thang for dates and details.


$50 off the standard 5-hour package ($250 for a $300 value)

Current and past clients most welcome--as always, everybody gets the sale.

I'm booking for August as well as for dates in the fall, so if you have something you'd like done by the end of the month, I can start next week (see above re. cancellations and postponements).

Smaller packages also available, email to discuss. I can review your submission package for an agent or publisher (synopsis plus chapters), help with your synopsis, check out your horse details, brainstorm plot and characters--lots of possibilities.

Cats and ponies and dog will appreciate this very much.

In other news, I have a brand-new story in an anthology that came out today: NEVERTHELESS, SHE PERSISTED. 19 stories by an amazing mix of authors, on the six-month anniversary of the (in)famous snark at Elizabeth Warren. We heard that and, en masse, we just could not resist. So to speak.

And as for where I've been, April ended with a really good Camp Lipizzan. I don't remember May. I think I was riding horses a lot. And working a lot. June started off with another lovely Camp, then blew up into the hottest June on record for Tucson, which is pretty damn hot. July then became the wettest on record, but at least it wasn't hot. Relatively speaking. And now it is August and I feel as if I'm emerging from hibernation, except it's summer so it's estivation. We're hacking our way through the exuberance of greenery that burgeoned after all the rain, hoping the arena dries out so I can ride the horses who are not safe to ride on trails (i.e., Pooka and Ephiny), and riding the trail ponies as much weather permits. And working. With more editing to come, I hope, and writing as it always is, because a writer never really stops.

oooh, this is the first I've heard of the NEVERTHELESS, SHE PERSISTED anthology. I am now the proud owner of a copy (I'd already received a coffee mug for my birthday from my brother. :)

Looking forward to reading your story as well as the others!

I did, splendidly, in between a zillion other things. I finally got to Tax Season and what a delight! I especially enjoyed Bron's wry mental tone.

Once she had that on, she was as sweet as she could be, which meant she still was death to loitering stablehands and the occasional passing dog.


I do hope Melita takes Bron up on her offer and they have many fine adventures together.

Thanks for the excellent read.
