January into February (Contest)
Wednesday, January 31st, 2024

UPDATE: The winner is…Roxie Jones!



  1. I continued to work on Malcolm (Book #10 of Montana Bounty Hunters: Dead Horse, MT).
  2. I revised and republished my novelette, Unbound by the Amazon. (It’s currently FREE in KU, and just $0.99 for a short time only!)
  3. I completed 4 editing projects for other authors in January.
  4. I wasn’t working at my peak for the first half of the month, but after that, I cooked!!


  1. I continued concentrating on drinking more water, plus, I continued drinking water mixed with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar twice a day to improve my liver health.
  2. I’ve managed to keep my blood pressure down to 135-155, despite the fact I haven’t been watching my dang weight.


  1. I haven’t painted or “arted” much this month! And I miss it. Writing like my hair is on fire is taking everything right now.
  2. Here are some examples of things I completed in January.





Malcolm (Montana Bounty Hunters: Dead Horse, MT Book 10) What Happens in Bozeman

For work-related, I plan:

  1. To complete writing Malcolm, my next Montana Bounty Hunters book and publish it on February 13th!
  2. To begin work on What Happens in Bozeman, my next We are Dead Horse, MT, book!
  3. To complete 4 editing projects in February!

For health related, I plan:

  1. To see my heart doctor so he can assess how the meds he prescribed are working.
  2. To start back on my Weight Watchers diet, because it’s time to get serious! I HAVE to get back in the saddle!
  3. To continue to reduce salt, processed food, and incorporate foods good for blood pressure (spinach, broccoli, bananas) and my liver (apple cider vinegar, flax seeds, sunflower seeds).
  4. To pay attention to my daily steps, trips up and down the stairs, and to incorporate some chair exercises and more walking.
  5. To do more housework because my art room isn’t finished! Cleaning is exercise, too.

For happiness-related, I plan: 

  1. To begin the #the100daychallenge where I’ll be painting something every single day, starting on February 18th. If you’re an artist, join me!
  2. To lead a program for the local art guild meeting in the use of Gelli plates.
