I blogged a preliminary version of Caleb’s infamous house rules a long time ago. The list has grown! There are lots of missing rules because I’m not sure even Caleb can come up with 213+ of these things. And while the numbers are allegedly arbitrary within the household, I kept track because – as youContinue reading “Caleb’s House Rules”
Probably the most bizarre little art project I’ve ever done… It’s the shed! You know, the shed. It’s mentioned in every book of the Wynter Wild series, and The Beat Goes On (book 10) there are several flashbacks to the ashram and to this sanctuary where Wynter, Xay and Roman used to meet at night,Continue reading “The Shed”
Broken Strings is book 9 of the Wynter Wild series, and it’s OUT NOW in paperback. Given the downfall of one of my (five) favorite characters, this was perhaps the hardest book to write so far. The quote on the image there is from Patricia, who senses something isn’t quite right in the Fairn householdContinue reading “Broken Strings (Wynter Wild Book 9) is OUT NOW in paperback”
Minor Key is book 8 of the Wynter Wild series, and it’s out today in paperback! If you’ve been collecting the paperbacks and want a matching set, grab this one quick. In a few months I’ll be relaunching the series with new covers. It’s been well over a year since I finished this book, andContinue reading “Minor Key (Wynter Wild Book 8) is OUT NOW in paperback”
In true soap opera fashion, the family tree in the Wynter Wild series gets bigger and more complex as the books progress and secrets are revealed. Following on from this post where I described a few family entanglements revealed in the Wynter Wild books (ones I hadn’t plotted out from the start), in this postContinue reading “Wynter Wild Family Tree (CHOOSE YOUR SPOILER LEVEL)”
This is the final (I think!) set of portraits created on the Artbreeder website to illustrate the characters from my books. In Part 1 I showed you the main characters and their immediate family, and in Part 2 the girlfriends and boyfriends of Caleb, Indio, Jesse, Wynter, and Xay.
A few more characters I created using ArtBreeder, an A.I. face generator. Check out Part 1 for the Fairn boys, Wynter, Xay, and more. Again, there are minor spoilers here regarding relationships.
After a bit of fun making avatars of my characters, I’ve moved on to Artbreeder. All I can say is… wow! “Real” people that don’t exist! One use for Artbreeder is to “breed” any two images together (such as a cat and an octopus, which was the first thing my daughter did). So you couldContinue reading “What Do They Really Look Like?”
New paperback out today! Duet is the seventh book in the series and introduces a new POV character Xay. We’ve already heard a bit about him in the previous books, of course. Getting into his head was a refreshing change from the other four characters. He has a positive optimistic outlook on life, making theContinue reading “Duet (Wynter Wild Book 7) is OUT NOW in paperback”
I’m slowly converting my ebooks to paperbacks, and the newest release is Natural Harmonics (Wynter Wild Book 6). This is one of my personal favorites in the series because I finally got to write about the family out and about in Seattle playing their music. Wynter and her brothers are ready to rock venues allContinue reading “Natural Harmonics (Book 6) is OUT NOW in paperback”
