Hey everyone! I know it’s been a while since I wrote. This year has a been a crazy year. So many things happened this year. For starters Covid hit hard in my family and we lost my father. We were super close and I still find it hard everyday that he’s not around. I miss him so much. Luckily I have my family for support.
Secondly my mom is super stressed about her mothers house being sold. My grandmother passed away last year 2020, so this affected her in so many ways. She lost one of her best friends that she could turn to besides me. My aunts live so far away and couldn’t help her with anything, and this affects her mentally as well as physically. I just worry about her so much. But a happy side, the house was sold so she doesn’t have to worry too much more about that.
Thirdly I’ve been struggling myself. I feel like physically and mentally I’m falling apart. I gained weight and whatever I do I can’t take it off. So this year I’m going to try my best to do better for myself, even if it’s a small change. I need to work on myself more and exercise more. I am big yoga person and I need to do more of that.
A good thing that is coming out of 2021 is that I’m learning to become a yoga instructor. I love yoga and I hope to teach other students one day. I want to make them feel good from the inside out. The way I feel when I come out of a yoga class.
What I hope to gain this year is more writing. I have several novels started and they all have been sitting there on my laptop unfinished. I hope to accomplish this year at least one to finish. It’s been a few years since my last novel was self published. However, I did have a short story published through an actual publisher. You can find that on Amazon and it’s called 25 Servings of Soop Volume II. My short story is called Dead End Drive.
That’s all for right now, I hope everyone has a happy new year and that you find happiness and peace within yourselves.
I’ve decided to make over my first novel Braver Than Yesterday, to change it up. I added a lot more things and changed some things. The Betrayal is here! Check it out 😉
Writing the perfect ad for your book is hard. I’ve been trying to come up with something for both of my novels for an ad and to be honest I’m having a hard time because you want your book to sell. What sells your book? A very well thought out ad. Something that catches the eye and draws you in. I must’ve changed the ad a gazillion times to try and get it right in my ear. I would run it over and over with my husband and he’s like yea try this or yea that sounds good. It’s really hard but it needs to be done. It’s my lively hood so I want to do right by it.
My first novel has a lot of sex, rape, love, & lesbianism in it. I know some of that is controversial but hey it’s what’s on my mind. People like to read that shit!
My second novel is about a girl that dies and comes back to life seeing spirits. Nothing like the first one but I like different! Wait until the sequel comes out.
Hopefully the ads work for both on Goodreads. Look me up if you haven’t already.

I’m back from vacation, and yes I stated that in my last blog but I wanted to say it again because truly I am. I wrote a little bit and I’m trying to get back into the groove of things. My house is a mess so I’m in the process of cleaning but wanted to take a short break so I could write my blog. I’m feeling annoyed because my English bulldog is crying in my face for attention. I spoil the hell out of him, but who could blame me? He’s my kid 🙂
So anyways I’m feeling pretty good about my ideas for my next novels. I’m continuing the writing of my sequel to my second novel From Within. I have some pretty good ideas for a few other novels in mind, so that’s pretty exciting. My mind feels powerful when I write. It’s amazing the possibilities that can come out of it.
I really needed a break from everything and let my mind unwind for a bit. Sometimes you need that. I know I did. With working full time and trying to write and taking care of things around the house it can get pretty hectic sometimes. I’m hoping one day to carry out my goal and life long dream of being a full time writer/novelist. It’s about the only thing that makes me happy these days. The escape from reality that can I put down on paper. To escape to a faraway land that you’ve never been before. I love it!
I just wanted to thank everyone that has supported me along this journey. Also the people who read my books. I appreciate it very much! Hope ya’ll have a lovely Sunday!
I just got home from vacation with the hubby and I have real interesting ideas for my next novel or novels. I’m really excited about it!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July as I did. I didn’t do much, I watched fireworks from the vicinity of my home.
I just wanted to check in with everyone and let everyone know I am on Goodreads and I changed the kindle cover to my first novel Braver Than Yesterday. The paperback will remain the same. I hope everyone will check it out.
Have a good weekend everyone!! Thanks for the support!
Writing for a living is a struggle, well for me it is. I’m trying to do it for a living and well it’s not turning out very well. Writing takes structure and words and well thought out planning. You give your life to it and what do you get in return? Nothing really, I mean yeah the desire that you wrote this piece of art and you let everyone read it. Words that pour from your soul onto a piece of paper. Some people don’t even care about it. They look at it and go eh and that’s it. I’m hoping for more then that.
Have you ever seen Girl Boss? I want that life. The life where you don’t care what people say, you’re going to do it anyway and your way. If writing makes me happy so be it, I want to be happy! I want to be my own boss, I want to write and sell my books. I want to wake up each morning knowing that somewhere in the world there is someone reading my book. That shit makes me happy and there is no one that can tell me otherwise. So thanks to everyone who purchased my novels and to those who read it. You are the best people in this world because you’re a passionate reader and you took the time out of your busy life to read the words that I wrote! I appreciate YOU!
Don’t take shit from anyone! You do what you want to do!
I was so excited when I came home on Sunday and there was a box on my porch. I grabbed it and opened it and to my surprise there were my copies of my new book inside. I was like I have to take a picture of these. They look amazing! I can’t believe I wrote two novels already and working on the third. This journey makes me feel so blessed that I have this gift. It actually makes me feel like I finally have a purpose on this wonderful planet!
If you haven’t yet, please check out my new novel From Within on Amazon and Smashwords. I appreciate the love and support from everyone. I’m so happy I found my calling in life ❤️❤️
Well folks it’s all over. The show I mean. I can’t believe how quick the time went. It was an amazing experience though. I met a lot of amazing people that I was glad to have met. I’m actually thinking about putting a book together about all of us. It would be fiction of course with a lot of drama of course. Because hello you can’t have a novel about drama when it takes place in drama haha. Okay I’m such a nerd for saying that 🙂
In other news my new novel From Within is coming out very soon. I can’t wait!! I’m working on the sequel to this particular book so that’s fun. It is fairly different then the first novel that I wrote. Don’t forget to check out Braver Than Yesterday on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
I really want to talk about something completely different so bare with me. Have you ever did the same thing over and over again and one day it just really gets to you? I feel like lately that’s what is going on with me. I feel like there is more to life then just this. I love to write and I love to blog. It’s what I’m most passionate about and I wish that this is what I could do for the rest of my life as a full time gig. Unfortunately I need money to live, so I have this full time job that I can’t really deal with anymore. I wish I could just leave it all behind. I want to see the world. I’ve never been anywhere except for a few states surrounding me. I feel like there is so much more to life then just this, I don’t know maybe I’m having an epiphany. I’m sure it will pass but I don’t want it to. I’d rather go out and see the world and experience it and write about it. Who knows maybe one day.
I wanted to give a big thank you to everyone who ordered my book during my promotion. It’s amazing the response I got from it. I’m hoping this will boost sales and reviews. I couldn’t believe it when I woke up in the morning and a ton already went out. It’s an amazing feeling that people actually wanted it. So from the bottom of my heart thank you!
If you haven’t checked it out: it’s on Amazon on sale for kindle and on paperback if you don’t do the digital thing. I know personally I love to feel a book in my hand. I do have both a nook and a kindle but I always go back to the physical book. It’s just something about it that gives me that feeling. I don’t know maybe I’m weird lol but I love it. My novel Braver Than Yesterday is soaring don’t be left out in the dark 🙂 Thanks again everyone!! I really do appreciate it!!
Hey there everyone! So I wanted to let y’all know that I decided to try something with my book on Amazon which is called Braver Than Yesterday. I decided for a limited time to do a promotion where the kindle version is free. So if you want to take a look at it please do! This is my very first novel and I’m so excited about it.
I finally wrapped up my second novel but I didn’t put it out there yet because it’s still in the process of editing and also I’m trying to look for an agency that will take me under their wing, which let me tell you is not easy. My second novel is very different then the first one but I absolutely love it. Right now I’m actually working on the sequel to the second novel and while writing that book I’m currently gathering ideas and writing a completely different book. So the thoughts and ideas are coming at me and it’s been a lot of fun.
In other news: rehearsals are still going on and it’s a lot of work but it’s interesting. We finally received the schedules for when we will be on. There are a total of 16 shows and I will be in 12 of them because there are A and B casts. I am really busy these days but that’s a good thing. Just have to make time for working out in between.
So anyway please check out my novel Braver Than Yesterday on kindle for a limited time for free!! I would appreciate it. If you read it please leave a review, it helps! Thanks y’all!
