Living your dream

I know I am a new author and I can't spell to save my life, should small inadequacies put a halt to your dreams?
Just because someone loses a leg does not stop someone from running a marathon.

I come across many people who have great ability to do great things but they lack the self-confidence to try.

Over coming your own fears is the second step on the road to success, the first of course is actually starting.

Life is set with obstacles, choices intended to help us learn about ourselves and the world around us, You can't let every little bump, rejection and hard choice drag you down.

I've made some poor life choices in my time, but every mistake has only helped me learn and mold me into the person I am today, and give me the imagination I need to help make my world a better place.
Never give up your dream.

Learning the Tec stuff.

I'm learning how brainless I am when it comes to tec-stuff, blogs, websites, I am just managing to get by, when I know things could be a whole lot better. Trying to wrap my brain around 'how to' is another matter.

I want to create a new website, I guess the next month or so is going to be a steep learning curve.

Keeping Busy



Finding time to write is never easy when you have a young family and work p/t. I tend to snatch moments when I can, and in the evening when all the little ones are in bed.


I have a new WIP Dragon Down Under, it's not really new I started it months back but I like to get a fair way in before deciding to put it up on me WIP list. Once it's up there I tend to focus on it until its completed. Dragon Down Under is a spin off from Dangerous Moonlight but can easily stand on it's own.


I've done another photo in my small photo shop program to help inspire my progress.


In other news Dangerous Moonlight is among the October releases, so far I'm assuming it will be late October as I've only just been assigned an editor.


There's a lot to the Cobblestone press and groups I have to learn about, but that's what I enjoy doing, learning always helps improve me.
I also have done a new video for Dangerous Moonlight I've posted to YouTube but needs some more work to correct a few errors.

I've Addad the link to my interview on Rouge Phoenix Press Blog

Thrilled.

Hard work sweat, well maybe not the sweat, but most certainly the tears have gone into my books, along with a lot of frustration, giggles, groans and disappointments. Sounds just like life hey? But at least I know that it is starting to pay off.


Cobblestone Press have offered me a contract for 'Dangerous Moonlight' I am of course thrilled. That is two books in under a week now with a contract.


After the wonderful news of Whisky Creek Press accepting 'Abducting Alice' I dove in to finish the second book in my Kelon series. 'Tempting Tara'. Which I have completed, and now into the editing phase.


I have already decided there will be a third book but probably no more after that. I want to then focus on the second book to 'Dangerous Moonlight'. Delving into the world of dragons. Should be fun.


More fun with the photo shop for my WIP of 'Tempting Tara.'

What a day.

Two wonderful things kept me on a lovely happy high yesterday. In the morning I got a email from Whisky Creek Press, with a contract for Abducting Alice, YAY! Yes, I did squeal like an excited girl! Making my kids look at me as if I'd lost my marbles.

Then by the end of the day, because the US is quite a few hours behind Australia, Blue Fire was released for sale. No girlish squeals but a feeling of achievement.

Now, Alice has been taken I can work on finishing Tempting Tara, the second in my alien series, it's gonna be fun.
