I Completed My TMS Therapy!

It went swimmingly. Do you see this smile? This is a genuine, happy smile. It was, indeed, a time commitment, but it really flew by quickly. It felt good to get up, get dressed, and go somewhere every day. It was powerful to take that step especially when all I originally wanted to do was stay home and hide under … Read More

What I’m Playing: .hack/GU Redemption

I loved the original .hack anime and the game series with Kite and Black Rose. Although the levels are repetitive, the story was cool and I loved how you’d get different aspects of it by the gameplay, anime, and videos. I bought the .hack/GU Recode quad on Playstation 4, and it’s been fun. I get to do everyday business things … Read More

It’s Official!

The official certificate arrived for Arterial Bloom, naming it a Bram Stoker Award Finalist! Woo hoo! I couldn’t be more proud of the authors and their stories. This was my maiden voyage as sole editor and the authors (and Todd Keisling, who did the cover and interior) made it as easy on me as possible. They were pleasures to work … Read More

Meet The Yardleys.

We’re attending a new church, and our first day went without a hitch. That’s a lie. There were so many hitches. I was wearing 4-inch heels and of course the platform suddenly peeled off the bottom of my shoe so I was rendered completely lame. My husband begged some scotch tape off of somebody so I could tape my shoe … Read More

So, I’ve Been Sick. What Really Happened. *Trigger Warning*

Wednesdays are usually where I write about TMS therapy (transcranial magnetic stimulation) and how wonderfully I’ve reacted to it. (You can read about it here.) It has changed my life. Then I had a horrific snafu with my doctor and pharmacy. Long, long, LONG story short, I’ve been trying to get my prescriptions refilled since January. We have a new … Read More
