New blog!

Yes, I've just now got started and... I'm moving!

Using the same host as my writing group: Some Write it Hot

My new blog page is now EllieWrites2 on wordpress.

See you there!
Today's the day....
I'm the topic of conversation over at
Some Write it Hot !

Ali Katz says:

Apart from the fact she’s a busy lady with three school age children, I suspect the only reason Ellie’s not published is she’s a little shy about submitting her work. One of the things we, as a group, try to do is help each other past those initial hurdles. Ellie’s conquered the biggest of them; she’s already finished two novels and several short stories. Maybe she needs a little push to get that manuscript ready and hit submit. Care to help?

So, go! Let me know!

My buddy Amber Green is up at ERA

Of all my friends at ERA, Amber Green is probably my closest buddy. I simply adore her stories, her sense of humor and sharp wit.

The fact that she's a sucker for four legged creatures doesn't hurt either.

She is featured today at the ERA blog, Some Write it Hot.

Hope you head on over!

My writing group - Erotic Romance Authors or ERA - now has

(drum roll please.....)

A live blog. Some Write it Hot!

And the first author interviewed is... Ali Katz.

She's written some great pieces including one of my favorite non-regency historical romances Damon's Price.

Check out the Some Write it Hot blog here.

Rumor has it there'll be a little something about me around mid-month.

A year?! Really?!!

Wow, well that fell flat on its face.

A year since my last post. Ugh.

It's water under the bridge now. I'm moving forward and *planning* to post ~ once a month.

My writing group, ERA is banding together to have a blog which all of us will contribute. I'll be interviewed mid-September, then my first piece will go 'live' late September. Once it is up there, I'll cross post it here.

In the mean time, a picture. Something calming.

Dirty Laundry

Several of my friends told me, before I packed my oldest off to camp, ‘don’t get expensive socks, he’ll loose half of what he takes’. Not that I ever buy ‘expensive’ socks, but forewarned I bought the cheapest cotton socks I could find in his size.

And they were right. Less than half returned.

What they didn’t tell me, though, was that the ones that returned were pretty much lost causes too. I have never seen ‘clean’ socks this dirty. Correction, I have. When pig slop ‘accidentally’ got into shoes during farm crew in high school and stained your sock FOREVER.

I have washed the boys socks using ‘the whitest whites’ setting on the washing machine AND bleach. Still brown bottomed. Didn’t dry them, instead I sprayed and scrubbed with Oxy Clean and washed again. Still not looking anything near clean. I’m not aiming for day-glo-white here, merely CLEAN. I’m not even close.

At this point I’m giving up; they'll just have to make do with brown, stained socks - which are clean even if they don't look it. However, I’m already keeping my eye out for ‘sales’ on socks for next year.
