June into July (Contest)
Friday, June 30th, 2023

UPDATE: The winner is…Mary Preston!


Along Came a Spider

  1. I revised and re-published a story that was originally part of an Entangled anthology, Along Came a Spider on June 27th!
  2. I began writing the next Montana Bounty Hunters: We Are Dead Horse, MT Jackson!
  3. I settled on the theme for the next Boys Behaving Badly Anthology — Secret Identities!
  4. I completed 3 editing projects for other authors in June.


  1. I’ve been swimming almost every day. Sometimes, twice a day.
  2. Through medicines and some diet tweaking, I’ve managed to get my blood pressure down. Not enough, and not without an occasional spike, but it’s so much better.


  1. I have been working on and making great progress organizing my art room, getting ready for the next push for art shows and reopening my Etsy store.
  2. I finished #the100dayproject online art challenge! Here are some of my last pieces I completed in the beginning of June…




For work-related, I plan:

  1. To complete writing and publish Jackson, the next in my Montana Bounty Hunters: Dead Horse, MT series which releases on July 11th!
  2. To complete 4 editing projects in July!

For health related, I plan:

  1. To swim at least once a day!
  2. To resume counting those points for my Weight Watchers diet and hopefully shed at least 5 pounds, remembering, as always: Slow is good!
  3. To continue to reduce salt, processed food, and incorporate foods good for blood pressure (spinach, broccoli, bananas, red wine).
  4. To begin walking and counting my steps.
  5. To do more housework because my art room isn’t finished! Cleaning is exercise, too.

For happiness-related, I plan: 

  1. To spend quality time with the family—movie nights, swim-time, making fun meals together!
  2. To participate in and complete a free art workshop, the Fodder Challenge 2023!
