It's April 1st!  Which means, it's the start of the A-Z Challenge.  Over the next month, you'll be reading posts from me and my fellow Nice Girls Writing Naughty.  We'll share tips, news, recipes, excerpts - basically anything that's fun for us and that we think you'll enjoy. For today, I figured I'd share a little about why I like challenges and then ask you, Dear Reade...

Wednesday’s Wild Ride Around the Web with Aunt Noony

Crazy
I did a Noony.  To those of you that know me, this will not be a surprise.  ~grin~  But I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Next time, remind me that launching not one but two new websites the week that A-Z starts, and two weeks before RT, might not be the brightest idea ever. But hey.  What's life for if not living? So, the biggest news is... Th...

Wednesday’s Wild Ride Around the Web with Aunt Noony

2012-09-08 pic
I don't know about you, but my day planner is a wormhole.  I put stuff into it and it multiplies, like rabbits, until there's way more in it than can possibly fit.  But, unlike a Tardis, the stuff filling my day planner is stuff to do.  There's always more stuff to do than time, at least in Noonyland.  Take today, for instance.  I have a few hours this morning to do things ...

Wednesday's Wild Ride Around the Web with Aunt Noony

Hello, Dear Reader!  I know, I know, I'm late.  But I have a good reason!  It's NaNoWriMo!  Well, that, and I was down in Hyde Park today visiting the amazing Chicago Innovation Exchange at the University of Chicago.  It's an incredible place.  I was up at 05:00, though, and wrote my morning pages, scrambled into the shower and threw myself onto Lakeshore Drive at 07:00. I h...

#TeaserTuesday: TAKE ME by Ella Sheridan

Guess what came out yesterday? The third book in my Southern Nights series, TAKE ME. I can't tell you how excited I am to see this book get into readers' hands. It ended up being a whopping 100,000 words, but when you have two alpha heroes that don't want to give up center stage, well, that takes some time to tell. ;) I've got an exclusive excerpt for you tonight, but first, b...

I feel like I've been working on this book FOREVER! No, it hasn't really been forever, just about three and a half months, but still... I'm so glad to finally be able to share the cover for the final installment of the Southern Nights series with you! What do you think of Peyton and Gabe and Sam? Their story is almost here! In fact, you can preorder TAKE ME already through A...

P Is For… Projects!

Projects.  We all have them, don't we?  I sometimes feel that my projects, stretched end-to-end down my street, would stretch from here to Australia.  Except, my street doesn't point toward Australia; it would probably end up somewhere around the Cape Horn.  But I digress. Today I worked on some posts for my own blog, the craft one that I call Knoontime Knitting.  I've been ...

N Is For… Nice Girls Writing Naughty! (C'mon, you HAD to see that coming…)

  Happy Thursday!  We're halfway through the A-Z Challenge and back to me, A. Catherine Noon.  I decided to share a little bit about us, the Nice Girls Writing Naughty.  We started in June of 2014, so we're not even a year old.  The brainstorm of two awesome writers, we came together for a common purpose:  to share our love of writing and being, well, nice to each other...

J is for…JUST

JUST wasn’t my first choice of topic when I was assigned the letter J, but I figured I’d try to keep it just about writing. Sometimes we write just as we speak and I just tend to use the word JUST just a bit more than I should. It’s just so easy to do, but really you just don’t need JUST. In fact, if you remove JUST from your sentence, ninety-five percent of the time, you’re me...
