REALMS OF EDENOCHT DESCENDANTS AND HEIRS was a very amazing read that I ended up finishingĀ during just one reading session because once I began I did not want to stop reading. The overall feel of the book reminded me of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, bit the story itself was unique! I really hope the author decides to continue to write in the fantasy genre!

UUUHHHGGGGG – Another year here and gone!

August 27, 2018 Things that happen in my life!  No comments

Well like the title says, another year has come and gone, and I am still nowhere I wanted to be. I have made great progress on book two but stalled out when some personal tragedies took its toll this last year. I wish I could say that writing is all consuming, but I have found it very hard to wrap my brain around it.  I feel like I have let my readers down and my characters, but most of all, I have let myself down. I know it won’t do any good to beat myself up, so instead, I am going to set myself some small but achievable goals to help kick-start my resolve to get book two done.

Goal one:

Spend several minutes daily talking to my characters...

Confessions of a Self-Published Author

October 17, 2016 Things that happen in my life!  One comment

Well here it is the middle of October and I haven’t written anything for such a long time. I regret to say it’s because I have been distracted with other things. And as every October, Halloween is around the corner and I am knee deep in costumes. I’ll post pics of the process soon but for now I am going to write a little about something I don’t know anything about.

Marketing! Yep, I have come to think of this as a four letter word. However, I really want to change that and figure out how to use the dynamic versatility of the internet to build my author platform. I don’t just want to sell books to people who got sucked into my fabulous advertising, I want to create super fans. People I can inspire and send on a little escape from reality from time to time...

Thanks Deals to Meals!

This is not anything I normally do, but when you find out your good friend is an author, it’s kind of a big deal~ and I want to share it with youšŸ˜‰ I wanted to give a shout out to her new book titled The Barrier. There’s magic, wizardry, action and an intense story line all teens and pre-teen’s will love. My children are avid readers and have loved this book. Most have read it a couple times even! The best part is she’s writing a series. How cool is that?!? So, if you need a new book to get your teens excited about reading, give Suzanne’s books a try! šŸ˜ƒ

Thing I have learned since deciding to write a book….

March 9, 2016 Things that happen in my life!  One comment

It’s interesting to me how life goes sometimes. Like I said in my bio, as I was pondering how I could contribute to the world and my family after my youngest was older and having to take care of my disabled mother, I was prompted to write a book. And like I said I had no idea how to do that. Well these are some things that I have learned in the six years or so since that day.

First, that writing has nothing to do with reading. Yeah, that sounds wrong, but it’s true. It has little to do with imagination, creativity, or especial grammar (that’s what editors are for). What it does have to do with is desire, persistence, passion, and endurance. The last has been the hardest...

Why I write YA Action Adventure

March 8, 2016 Things that happen in my life!  No comments

I was asked recently why I didn’t write Romance, at first I didn’t know what to say. So I asked, “What do you mean?” This person replied, “Well, your a woman, and most female authors write romance.” I was shocked and kind of peeved. Well ok, a lot peeved. But then I started thinking, and yes there are a great many female authors that write romance of some sort. I decidedĀ  not to be upset and thought I was going to set this person straight. So I said, “Well if it goes fast, blows up, or is riddled with bullet holes I’m all over that.” In which they replied, “But don’t you just love a happy ending?” I decided IĀ  would take the chance and said, “Yes, I do, especially when the bad guy gets his but kicked.” Our conversation quickly ended with a truce. Haha!
