A To-Do List on Steroids~NOT

Plotting  a book’s life for the second half of the Year of the Rooster ~ 2017

All about Love, Fortune and Compatibility.

99c On Sale now! The Sheriff’s Woman 99c.

The first half of 2017 is used up~gone! Telling you up front, I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions…except sideways, such as: Don’t buy a swimsuit. That’s a top tier resolution because then I don’t have to declare a diet to fit in the thing.  I did promise myself I’d recover my dining room chairs. Got one done. I’m good.  As for my writing, I hoped in the deepest recesses of my heart, I’d finish a WIP and get it published.  That’s happening. The Sheriff’s Woman has been through editing, is in the hands of my formatter and the ebook cover is in hand.

Are You Superstitious?

Jackie Weger

Superstitious Author,
Jackie Weger

I am superstitious. I can’t help it. I don’t know where it comes from. I don’t  sit on a bed after it is made to perfection and I have heart failure if any visitor to my home does. Pull the covers down first if you need to nap. That’s fine.  Okay.  So now I’m a writer. I need good luck along with craft and a few good author pals. I have a keeper who likes to nap. And I have cats for the first time in my life. Cats are no respecters of superstition. I don’t make the bed up any more. There is good luck, bad luck and no luck.
