Keep it Going

As you can see, I have my new cover for "Baby Decision" from Amira Press. I will be starting the edits for it in the coming weeks.

I have a lot going on right now. Not only am I working on a new book, but I'm also submiting books I've already written to publishers. And as we all know, the goal of every author is to sell books so promoting is also factoring into the mix.

Sometime the constant demands to keep everything moving can seem overwelming. Yet at the same time, it is an adventure that can't be beat. The thrills of getting a new cover or selling a book takes you through the lows of rejections and multiple edits.

Like in all phases of life, you just have to keep going. The trip to success begins with the steps you take today.

I hope you have a lot of fun on your life's path.

Let it Brew

All during the holidays, I was wondering about what I wanted to write next. Had several stories I was thinking about but none I was very excited about.

Over the last week or so I started a new book. A woman over forty meets a younger man. Not a new concept, but one as a woman I can relate too because I'm pass those twenty-something years.

I love starting a new book because it always gets me excited about writing.

Also don't forget to vote at The Long and Short Review site for "Pregnancy Plan" for best long ebook of 2007.The link is under the picture of my cover. And while you're at it please sign my guest book.

Hope you have an awesome week.

Setting Down Goals

With the holidays over, everyone is setting down their goals for this year. I like everyone else have thesame basic goals of eating healthy, losing weight, spending more time with my family. Then I have my career goals.

Promotion looks like it is the top priority, but then if you have nothing to sell, what can you promote. So I'm doing a balancing act between the two. Writing at least two to three books this year and getting my name out there.

Also with the nomination for Best Ebook Romance for 2007from The Long and Short Review, I have been hitting the yahoo groups to garner votes.

Which reminds me, if you haven't voted, please do so. The link is under my cover. (And I hope you vote for me.)

And my last goal, which everyone should do, is to remember to laugh.
Even when you take a tumble on the ice, it might not be fun, but I'm sure my husband got a laugh out of it.

Have a great day full of fun and laughter.

Ring out the Old Year

This has been an incredible year for me with my writing career taking off. In January, I sold my first book to The Wild Rose Press."Pregnancy Plan" came out in ebook form in October 2007 and will come out in paper back in April 2008.

At the end this year, I sold my second book "Baby Decision" to Amira Press. I also just found out that "Pregnancy Plan" has been nominated for Best Ebook Romance for 2007from The Long and Short Review. I am thrilled to just be nominated, and I'm up against some stiff competition.

I'm looking forward 2008.

Hope you have a great New Year.
