OMG, My first Author Event!

AuthorDayBanner 2

I am so excited I can not believe This! After all these years of helping others with their books, I have decided to pay some attention to the writer in me. Not the promoter in me. I took the leap and created a Kickstarter campaign to raise some funds to reboot my baby Angelic Confessions, which has now lead to my very first public appearance as an author.

I am an author so of course, I LOVE BOOKS. My whole library got destroyed in Hurricane Michael last year where we lost everything. We relocated to Arkansas and we love it here. Their library nice and I somehow got the nerve to ask about maybe doing an author event. “Well May 2nd we are having a local author day would you be interested in that?” The petite librarian asks. SURE!  Wow! That is so awesome! And I am now so nervous! feeling so insecure! Also at the same time, I am so happy! Feeling so blessed! No longer am I going to be a shadow writer. I went into the shadows with Angelic Confessions for so long. I just hope my fans are still out there! I am coming out of the shadows taking the world on by storm!

I am back baby!

ANGELIC CONFESSIONS-REBOOT Kickstarter Campaign is a Go!

IT HAS BEGUN! ( and I am terrified!)

 

ITHASBEGUN

Yes, Authors can be terrified. As I mentioned back in Meira’s Prince Book Release event Angelic Confessions is in the hopes of getting a reboot.

Back in 2013, I published my labor of love Angelic Confessions. It did well but could have done a lot better if I have not given up on it. Instead, I was helping other people promote their books, but never did I do my own. I did not mind though as helping others brought me so much joy. My husband says I never listen to him as he always complained I was helping others, but here I had this great book out there that no one really knows about. As much as I would love to promote my book I was always to busy still helping others gain exposure. I then remembered my husband’s words(see I do listen.) and decided to take the plunge. I wanted to give Angelic Confession the proper redo along with finally working on book 2 Angelic Awakenings. Thus ANGELIC REBOOT -Angelic Confessions ( Book1) Kickstarter Campaign was born.

 

We would love your visit and support! We already got 1dollar pledge! My goal is to raise $150.00 to help give Angelic Confessions the proper editing and cool new book cover design it needs to relaunch! $20 pledge gives you a free signed copy!

Help reboot the angelic love story that transcends all time!

Why I Write…

Some days as a writer you got to ask yourself this questions. Why Do I Write?

I was having one of those days. That is when I picked up my pen and paper and wrote, reminding myself WHY I WRITE. 

I write to you, not for you.

I write to make you feel.

I write to anger you.

I write to heal you.

I write to make you think.

I write to take something, so mundane with my words of creativity make it fun and entertaining…

Girl’s Guide 📙 to Your First ☝️ Mammogram 👙 …

Excited to share my latest published article. Comments and likes welcome! Here is a sneak peek.

I’m here with a guide to your first mammogram. I have come to that glorious age where mammograms are now to be included in the prominent woman’s repertoire of the yearly wellness checkup. (I’m 43 and proud of it.) No biggie, right? WRONG! Mammograms have been ingrained in my head as being horrible, terrifying boob abusers! From the moment my breasts came to be, the mammogram was an ever-looming presence….

A Writer’s Resolution

Happy New Year!

 

I normally do not make new years resolutions. Even as a child I hated those holiday fun activities in elementary school where they asked us to write our own new years resolutions. I loathed it. I had no goals. I was living life day to day. What happens, happens. Kind of a sad outlook for a 10 year old. Even in adulthood I could not escape the dreaded new years resolution. A job requirement one time was  to take a mandatory course on making goals for yourself. UUUUGH! I DO NOT MAKE GOALS!

Apparently my rejection of goals finally reached the ears of the gods of new years resolutions whom then hit me with their lighting bolt. Something sparked in me this year to want to make a new years resolution…not just an ordinary new years resolution mind you. A WRITERS RESOLUTION!

Here we go!

My Writer’s Resolution

1. Work on my blogs more. I am so busy striving to write for others I have not feed my personal writing enough. I have not promoted myself as a writer, reviewer, or promoter enough. That is goal one to spotlight on me and my writing more.

2. Spotlight poetry and poets. Poetry is my first love. Poetry is where my writing affair started. Therefore I declare a CALL TO ACTION! CALLING ALL POETS! PLEASE SEND IN YOUR WORKS OF POETRY TO BE FEATURED ON MY BLOG( click on contact me section to contact me directly and submit)  ALONG WITH YOUR BIO. YOUR NAME AND WORKS SHALL THEN BE SEEN ALL ACROSS THE INTERNET!

3. Be more positive. Especially in this business depression can consume you. There’s rejection letters after rejection letters. Companies where they will hire you then have such high expectations and pay you in pennies if you get paid at  all…. well that is suited for another blog post.

Happy New Year folks! #make2018great. (Lets make this hashtag spread!)
