Update ALL THE THINGS

A recent vulnerability was discovered in WordPress. If you have not already done so, make sure you update the core installation, and any and all add-ons and themes. You might want to backup your site before you do so. (Via Diane Duane’s Tumblr.)

One Stitch at a Time

One Stitch at a Time

This is a traditional time of year to reflect on the year behind, and think about what we would like to accomplish in the year ahead. Resolutions, goals, whatever you want to term them. This has been tying up my brain recently, what I want to accomplish, how I have failed at meeting personal goals in the past, and how to set myself up for success. So, instead of talking about that, I’m going to talk about knitting. A blanket (which happens to be what I’m working on at the moment), sweater, scarf, cock cozy1, whatever, does not spring off your needles fully formed. Likewise with writing, a novel does not just spring into existence. Even when I’m in “the zone” and where the fingers cannot move fast enough to keep up with my brain, it...

Welcome to the New Age. Now backup your website.

It’s 2015, do you know where your website backup is? If you own your own site, or have a blog that you host on your website, it’s a REALLY good idea to make a backup periodically. The more frequent you update, and the more important your content is to you, the more frequently you should backup. Here are handy links to WordPress and Blogger: How to backup a WordPress Site and Database. How to back up a Blogger Blog (Google). If you use something else, do a Google search on “backup [platform] blog”. If you host your own website, it’s also a really good time to back that up as well. Your webhost (GoDaddy, Dreamhost, etc.) will have instructions on how to do that. Life happens. Payments get missed. Sites get hacked. Auto-re-registration...

Last Links for 2014

A couple links for you, on what is a wet, dark Sunday afternoon for me. It’s Christmas Everywhere but Here was chosen as one of Prism Book Alliance’s December Recommended Reads. It also received a B+ rating in a review by Nina over at Gay List Book Reviews. I’m happy to be past the holidays and my family obligations, though the time off work was nice. I hope you did as well, and that you’re all ready to jump into the new year, because I don’t think it’s going to slow...

Flashing by Friday

Happy Friday, All. I am grabbing a few hours in between work and a community event I’ve gotten involved in to snag dinner, and try to quickly sum up the week. Today I have an author spotlight over at Nautical Star Books. I’m their first author spotlight, in fact! Go take a look, learn a little more about my process for It’s Christmas Everywhere But here, and me! Carissa at Love Bytes Reviews gave ICEBH 4.5 stars. Thanks, Carissa! I’m glad you enjoyed it! I’m in the part of the Pacific Northwest that just got slammed with wind and rain this week. I was thoroughly expecting a power outage last night, but while the lights flickered, they did not fully go out. I have the feeling I am going to completely face-plant after my event...

Cyber Muppet Monday

Cyber Muppet Monday

A quick post for a Monday morning. Amy Lane was kind enough to include me in her latest Kermit Flail Monday, along with some other awesome authors. Go check it out! And Eri McRare and Racheline Maltese have compiled a book list for Cyber Monday. This is author-reported content, and they have done their best to include books from the entire LGBT range. And on that note, It’s Christmas Everywhere but Here is out Wednesday, and if I don’t get in the shower Right Now, I’m going to be late for work. Happy Monday,...
