This month, Dodging the Wall - how to deal with feeling stuck.

You can still leave comments for me on that post, and I'll get an email letting me know to come respond to the thread. This column usually runs the first Wednesday of the month, though November's ran a week later due to a host change at Wave's.

Blog: It's Cinnimantique! How old was my cinnamon before I replaced it? Do you really want to know?

Interview: JCP Q&A, brand new interview on Live your Life, Buy the Book.

Electric Kettle

Rec: Electric kettle - Such a simple thing, but I fell in love with the kettle on my trip to the UK. I chose one at Target finally. Not quite as fast as a UK kettle, but not bad. I probably use it 3-4 times a day, which is great. Because it feels so wasteful to buy a new gadget and not use it. (It got crappy reviews but I like it just fine.)


Rec: Cafix - Since I was looking around for good things to make with my new kettle, I decided I wanted to try a grain-based coffee replacement beverage. (Not to replace my coffee, mind you, but to enjoy in addition to my coffee!) I was "meh" about the first couple cups, and then suddenly I was totally hooked. I prefer the powdered Cafix in the red can to the granular Cafix in the green can. It's stronger.

Jot that Down

Dear reader,

It’s such a cliche, and yet it’s true. Where the heck has the year gone? It’s November already, when did that happen? I enjoy November. Usually there are a few surprise warm days, but probably some snow, too. Also, one of my favorite holidays lands in November: Thanksgiving!

I enjoy a big dinner as much as the next gal, but the real thing I love about Thanksgiving is that it’s a time we reflect on our abundance. It’s so easy for me to fall into the trap of looking around and seeing how many authors have more good reviews than I do, who has more “likes” on social media, who has better sales, etc. But when it comes down to it, I always find my way to the realization that I’m damn lucky to be doing what I love, I’m fortunate to have a readership who enjoys my work, and I’m thrilled to have made so many wonderful friends online.

My local book group has decided to keep gratitude journals. One suggestion was to list a certain number of things we’re grateful for every day, with the stipulation that there’s no repeating. So in the beginning, normal things would occur to you: feeling grateful for your family or your home or your nice warm bed. But as you “use up” the obvious gratitudes, you’re forced to stretch and realize how many other things you really would miss if they were to go away. Like air or gravity.

Since I’ve done that type of gratitude journal in the past, I opted to take another tack. I pick one thing I appreciate and write a page about why I appreciate it. (It’s a 5x8 notebook so it’s just a few paragraphs, not a major essay.) This way I can analyze the facets of how various parts of my life interconnect, and get really clear about what I value, and how fortunate I am to have so many good things. Ideally I’d write every day, but I’m finding it difficult to be consistent. One thought is that maybe I toss it on the bed when I think of it so that later on I’ll remember, “Oh yeah, I need to journal some appreciation today.”

Victor Bayne Journals

If you’re looking for a new journal—for gratitudes or to-do lists or anything else—you can find some spiffy PsyCop journals in my new JCP Books Gift Shop at Cafe Press. They come with options for lined, unlined, or day-planner interiors. I’ve ordered one of each journal and I’m really impressed with the quality of the printing. And I used to do quality control at a silkscreen shop, so I’m picky!

CalendarAnd if, like me, you find the year is whizzing past too quickly to comprehend, you can pick up a gorgeous 2013 Channeling Morpheus calendar featuring all the second edition cover art to help you keep track of next year.

Cafe Press does ship internationally and the rates aren't too outrageous. Also, you can often find coupons by Googling, though their coupons change daily so it's best to search right before you plan to buy.

I appreciate my readership every single day, not just on Thanksgiving. Hugs to you all.

In the Dark

Channeling Morpheus: ElixirA New PsyCop Short

Halloween is least, it's supposed to be. Costumes, candy, trick-or-treat, even jaded Victor Bayne can get behind those sorts of antics. Too bad this year's Halloween is a grownup event. Not only must Vic don a suit and endure a disco-obsessed DJ, he has to mingle with friends of Jacob's he would much rather ignore.

Vic thinks he has the party's host all figured out--but as he so often realizes, once he looks beneath the surface, things are seldom what they seem.

(In the Dark is PsyCop 6.1 - it's a companion piece to Stroke of Midnight, the New Year's short. It contains series spoilers through GhosTV.)

Cover that up

PsyCop Flash

A dear Facebook friend was lamenting the fact that when she gets emails from a certain American department store, they have enticing subject lines like "Something New at JCP!" and she gets all excited thinking I've got a new book out. Then she opens them up and discovers it's not me at all, and the big news is something lame, like "Jock straps on sale!"

Wouldn't you know, her comment planted a story seed in my brain.

Marvelous Marlin

November Serial

Turbulence 5: Black Box

Playing catch-up is frustrating. Paul Cronin was the last crew member to join Flight 511, and he’s got a lot of catching up to do.

Paul finds a throwaway line in Marlin’s notebook that may be the key to unraveling the mystery. Time is of the essence, since every night it takes him to puzzle through the phenomenon in empty Bermuda is another night the uncensored side of his personality is spending with Dallas.
