Posted Jan 16 2019

Last year, I began a reader group for fans over on Facebook. It’s a small thing, just a place where I post a scene or two, invite reader participation in naming characters, and chat about books.

It had no name all this time.

I finally settled on the name PATINATION. I love this for a few reasons. First, the play on my first name is fun. Second, the word comes from PATINA, which is a shine or gloss on something. This aligns well with my word of the year, which is SPARK. That word guides my choice of projects to take on, as well as reminds me when I need to step-up my self-care.
