It is done, finally. My third book is now available for sale. Yay! Now the fun part, marketing, yuck. I love to write, but having to market the book is horrid. I feel weird posting things even on facebook. I mean, what does anyone really care what I am doing? I am a mom and a wife, not a world leader who can change the world. But then again, why can't I? We all can really. I mean, if we all can get together and agree on a solution to a problem, why can't each of us in our own small part of the world fix that problem? Each of us can influence our children and our neighbors to take small steps to say stop hunger in our own small area. If you know a family who is struggling in your area, and each one of your neighbors agree to donate say one part of a meal for them, imagine how much food you could give to that family? Hmm... maybe I can make a difference and so can you.
Hello again all! I do hope everyone has survived Christmas. I have managed to dig my way out from under the ripped wrapping paper and discarded boxes to attempt to get some work done. I am now in the marketing phase of the book. So much fun, *sarcasm*. I am going to make a book trailer to put on youtube, but I have to figure out how and then come up with a good idea. Oh well, part of the whole thing. I still love writing, but the other stuff just is a bit more difficult.
So how was everyone's Christmas. Good I hope. Did you get everything you wanted? I had a great day, I got a 3-d picture from my daughter, it is cool. It has flowers and a hummingbird. I also have a thing for swords and other pointy things. Mey father got me a huge fist weapon with knives out the ends. It looks like wolverine. lol
I guess I will sign off now. I need to get some work done. Have a great time!!
It is with a heavy heart I am writing this tonight. I am sure you all have heard about the tragedy that has occured in our country today. 20 students shot down before they even had the chance to live. The monster shot the principle, a councilor, the kindergarten teacher who was his mother, then her class.
I can not imagine what those families are going through at this time. My youngest is in kindergarten. I send her off to school every morning, sure that her classroom is a safe place for her to be, with a caring teacher whom she loves. It never crosses my mind that something like this could happen. I know that is how these parents felt.
I was in the middle of my shift at word, the dining room was full, when I first heard about this. All I wanted to do was leave and grab my kids from their classrooms and hug them, thankful they were okay. I know other parents felt the same.
So to anyone reading this, if you are a prayer, take a moment and pray for this community, if not, keep them in your thoughts. Grab your children and hug them, even if they are to young to understand why, just hold them tight.
I am signing off now, like many of you, I am tearing up and need to go. Love each other and yourselves.
Hello all. I just realized how close Christmas is. Where did the time go? I am so not ready. Every year, I swear I am going to start shopping earlier and every year I put it off until the last couple of weeks. Now I have to rush around once again and get everything together.
I guess my only hope is that the world is going to end on 12-21-12. No, I do not really believe anything is going to happen that day, and if I am wrong we won't be here for you to say I was wrong. lol
My husband (jokingly) says that it is going to not be the end of the world, it is actually going to be the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. lol. I doubt it, the CDC has said there is no zombie apocalypse. I know we all trust our government and everything they say.
So I guess I will be taking my day off tomorrow and trying to get the most amazing gifts I can for my children. Hmm... what to get them?
S wants a new Android phone. Okay we might be able to do that. M wants a Leappad 2. Possible.
B wants... oh no, what does he want? Maybe a new video game, but which one? A movie, oh no, what to get him? Why are boys so difficult?
Girls are easy, a barbie when they are young, makeup and hair stuff when they get older.
Boys are horrid to shop for, if I buy the wrong game, I am the lamest mom alive. Great now I am going to have to do something awful, I am going to have to try to talk to a teenage boy. The hardest thing ever. I f I can get him to turn off the headphones, then I have to get him to look away from the computer. Wow, this is going to be hard. Okay, I am going to sign off and try this. Wish me luck.
By the way, in response to the comment on my last post, I felt sorry for the officers here in town, knowing they had to be getting bored, but I decided I didn't want to double the crime rate in the town with my laziness to go to the crosswalk. lol
I want to welcome all readers to my new website. I will tell you a little about myself to start. I am a mom first and foremost. I have three kids, two girls S, who is 16 and M who is 6. I also have a son B, age 13. I do not give their names cause apparently I can embaress them at times. Oh well, lol. I have been married to the most wonderful man for 18 years now. He puts up with me putting on my headphones and zoning out while I write as well as the normal drive him nuts stuff.
I work a regular job as a waitress in between all the other madness. I enjoy my job because it is a small town and I get to know everyone in town. We live in a town of about 700 to 1100 people, depending on who you ask. When we were getting ready to move here, I called the city hall (one woman who does everything and does it well) to ask about crime stats for the town. She said that every few years there is a robbery and someone runs the stop sign at times. When running the stop sign is your biggest crime concern, it is a safe place. lol
I love animals and have three pets, a dog, cat and a ferret. They are all spoiled rotten.
I am buying an older house and constantly fixing it up. I have a fifteen year mortgage and I think it is going to take twenty to do all the things I want done. The house is cute and the things we are doing are cosmetic, the house is really in great shape, but if we are buying it I want to make it ours so we are doing alot of work.
If you can not yet tell, I enjoy joking around. You will see this in my posts.I will also use this area to talk about cooking, housework and other daily mess we all go through.
Now to start with some really good news. I am sort of picky about things with my books. I have a certain look I want for the front cover but the publisher I have had so far created their idea of what the cover should be like. I have decided that this time I will get the cover I want. I am working with a talented artist by the name of Robert Sletten to design the book cover. I have seen his work and can't wait to see what he can come up with for me. I would suggest you remember his name though, I have a feeling he will go far. I am going to sign off for now. I will write at least once a week, maybe more depending on time and if I have anything to say. Everyone have fun, hope you enjoy the site.
