From Alpha to Zulu: Life as a Military Bride, Echo

Echo is for: Enlisted Life I’ve been writing military romance for many years now and reading it even longer. I’m picky when it comes to who I’ll read when it comes to military romance because I lived military life and I have a few sticking points when it comes to how it’s written. I’ve deduced …

Delta is for: Deployment Before I get started with the “D”-word, let me just pose this. Where the heck did June go? My gravy, y’all! Here we are with Independence Day staring us down, and may I just add on to that, we’re mostly still closed down. I digress… Deployment. This is the magical time …

The Things We Keep Hidden

Here I am just a few hours away from this month’s ISWG posting deadline and I’m struggling. How ironic, right? I think right now, though, the whole world is struggling. It’s hard not to struggle with at least one thing or other with the state of things right now. It makes one fearful of asking …
