The Rocky Retreat

Next Friday, November 5, 2021, my entertaining, funny political satire novelette, The Rocky Retreat, will be published in digital/ebook format for interested readers!

If you’re looking for a light, humorous, and short read, purchase your Kindle, Nook, or Apple Book copy via pre-order or when it’s published!

Look here or here to order.

Here’s the blurb:

Environmentalist Callie and her best friend go on a save-the-wetlands-and-wildlife retreat in a small town nestled in the Rocky Mountains. During those four days, Callie and her friend encounter much more than altitude, jagged peaks, sparkling rivers, and welcoming townspeople. On the contrary, adversaries of all stripes litter their vacation with protest clashes, chemically-laden products, and dangerous weapons. While Callie and her friend fight for the survival of the wetlands and wildlife, will they survive the retreat?

Check it out and enjoy a good laugh!

Authenticity in Writing

Although all of us authors/writers must do some research in writing our stories when we do not know enough about a certain subject matter, the value of critiques from various other writers is that you learn vital information you may have missed.

You are always learning something new, and with that crucial information provided by your critiques, your story becomes more authentic, which is what we always want for our fiction works.

I gained knowledge in a particular subject this morning to help make one of my character’s hobbies more realistic and believable.

Fellow writers, I hope you are able to connect with critique partners to help strengthen your stories.

Thank God for critiques/feedback!

The Best Gift at My Door

Me with my book Passage of Promise April 1 2020

 

While eating dinner, there was a knock on our front door. Troy, my husband, opened the door, stepped outside then came back inside with a box. A box that looked like it was holding a book. MY Book. And sure enough, it was!

My print copy for me to inspect came this evening. And with all the hard work and struggles I went through today with a website for authors that led me to discouragement and tears of frustration, this totally made up for it! I can’t believe it’s my book, and the thickness of it. Man, I really wrote a lot! Ha ha! Celebrating time. Publication date is May 4, for those interested. 🙂
