a) the weather
b) I'm seeing all of these other books coming out that look so great
c) I just need a vacation to a nice warm, tropical place with crystal blue water.....yeah, I think that's it!
So why do you ask am I having this pity party? Well, because of letter A I have been cooped up in the house and instead of turning into Jack Nicholson's character in The Shining. I've been focusing on writing. To tell you that I am completely in love with the story that I'm writing at the moment doesn't even begin to describe my feelings. I know, I know.....I say that with every book that I'm writing but what kind of author would I be if I didn't fall completely in love with my characters and feel all of their ups an downs? So, I'm almost 3/4 of the way done with my 6th novel.....I should be happy right? Well, here's were the problem lies. I want to share this book (and all my books) with each and every reader out there. But with there being so many awesome books out there.....it kind of makes it hard to not get lost in the shuffle.
So, here is what I'm going to do....focus on the positive! I will continue to write because I LOVE to, not because I want to become rich and famous (but that would be nice). I have quite a few loyal readers out there.....you know who you are. As long as you guys keep reading them and enjoying them....I will keep writing them for you....I may slow down a bit but I won't quit! So I'm going to follow my own and advice:
"Write with your heart as if no one else will ever read your story. Don't worry about how many books you will sell or becoming rich overnight. A book that is written from deep within your soul is more valuable than any bestseller out there"
Okay, I feel better now! Sometimes writing it all out does help! And the fact that in just a few short weeks (maybe sooner) I will be able to share A Cry For Hope with all of you. Are you planning on coming to the release day party? I hope so!! RSVP HERE. Everyone is invited.....there will lots of fun, games and giveaways....BYOB!
Ps. The book that I am working on now is a companion novel to A Cry For Hope. Check it out on Goodreads here and add it to your TBR list: A Will To Change
