Author Insights 01

authorinsightSo it’s a new year and I am determined to make this year better than the last. Aside from a day job, I used to like and now can’t stand, I didn’t have much to complain about in 2012. I have a wonderful husband who lets me be me and an amazing family that drives me crazy in all the right ways. They love me so much and I love them.

I’ve had decent health, up until recently, but I’m even getting over that spell now. I haven’t been writing as much as I’d like, but I have been writing pretty steadily. I’m slowly building up a blog following and maybe one day that will spill over into a fan following for my books.

So here’s the point of this article—It’s a chance for me to declare what I will accomplish this year. I will release Eternal Curse: Battleground this year and I will release It’s Like the Full Moon this year. I will finish development of my adventure tale and continue to work on my skills and catalog of short stories. I will continue to enjoy readying, when I can, and not make a chore of it. I even plan to find some kind of way or cause to support with my writing so that I’m not just taking, but am also giving back.

Most importantly, I am going to keep calm and focused and not let myself get overwhelmed. When I got sick, it was a wakeup call for me. I was doing so much, that my body just didn’t have the time or the strength to fight my illness. I had to end up on complete quarantined bed rest for two weeks, just to clearly understand that I can’t do it all.

I’ve had to pick and choose and let some things go, but I’m hoping there will be a change in my future that lets me do all the things I want to do, when the time is right…And just for good measure and tradition, I’m going to lose some weight too.
