Special Birthday Surprise

my book on the happy table 1

I just woke up and found a text from my husband, Troy. While in town for his and Christopher’s haircuts yesterday, he stopped by Sudden Fiction Books without my knowledge and took a picture of my book on the “Happy Books” table. What a lovely birthday gift. Thank you, love.

My birthday wish is that many people pick up a copy of Passage of Promise and that when they read it, they find it a feel-good, well-worth-it read.

On the Bookshelves

Once there was a twelve-year-old girl who used her index fingers to peck the keys of her dad’s electric typewriter to write her first book, A Stuffed House. Then in her mid teen years, she wrote a historical romance trilogy set during the US Civil War. She went on to write a novel in her early to mid twenties, took a long seventeen-year hiatus for marriage and family, and came back to writing in 2014. She wrote her debut novel, Passage of Promise, in 2015 and finished revising and editing it in 2019. It was published May 1, 2020.

Today, she stopped by the local bookstore in her town and saw her book on one of their bookshelves. This was a new experience for her. A joyful and proud experience. She’s thankful to Sudden Fiction Books for carrying her work.

Numerous Projects Make an Author Blissfully Happy

this is good

Writers, are you in the midst of typing up/penning a novel? A short story? Have you finished the first draft? Or have you gotten so far as to have your book published already? Do you have any other books lined up for revisions, or a fresh story in the wings?

Please tell me you don’t have writer’s block. Tell me you have ideas blossoming in your mind like daffodils in the springtime.

I mean, what’s better than having a plethora of writing projects to dive into each day?

You put one story aside after its latest revisions, and grab another one waiting to be revised. And then a third one you’re in the midst of writing that is as fresh as washed linens drying on a clothesline on a warm, sunny day?

This week, I’ve gotten extremely positive feedback from fellow writers/critiquers on the ending of my novel, What She Didn’t Know. Overall complete positive feedback on this story. They helped clean up this story.

I’ll put What She Didn’t Know aside after this week and concentrate on my novella, Mourning Dove, coming up next in the queue.

Then I’ll go back to What She Didn’t Know and clean/revise the Word doc to match the changes I made in the critique queue.

So excited!

Oh, and today is the publisher’s meeting to look over and discuss my novel, Passage of Promise’s proposal. I will see in about a week’s time if they accept it.

I think What She Didn’t Know is my strongest story and could be my breakout novel. I’m thrilled I have so many projects to keep me busy and I’m not having writer’s block right now!

If only I could revise and write faster. Haha!

Happy writing, my friends!
