Great Weekend!

Downloads were plentiful!

Over the weekend, Saving Toby was downloaded almost 1,700 times! It hit #1 in ranking for Romance and Love genre and #11 in New Adult/College genre downloads on both Friday and Saturday.


I also received an additional 5 star review from a reader! (someone I don't actually know! lol)

What also filled my heart with joy, was the phone call I received yesterday from my sister-in-law, a woman's whose opinion I value, not only because she is a wonderful person, but because she is well-educated, and a librarian, to boot. 

I was immensely pleased with her feedback, and I hope she won't mind me quoting her, but she said, "It is so much more than a love story."

She is suggesting Saving Toby to her husband and friends to read.

So if you took advantage of the free download over the weekend, please don't just leave it hanging about on your eReader. READ it! I think you'll enjoy it. And, of course, don't forget to give feedback!

Because of all the buzz with Saving Toby, I am very inspired to really dig into the sequel, Keeping Claudia. Working diligently to get it finished.

Peace.

The Art of Letting Go

The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.
If you’re like me, and most of the world, somewhere around the first of January, you made New Year’s resolutions, and set a few goals. Maybe yours was to get into shape, travel or get that promotion you always wanted. This year, I want to write my next novel and another immediately after that. Anyone serious about reaching a goal needs to have a strategy—because ideas without a plan of action are merely wishful thinking.
I had a plan, had it all mapped out, and revved up and ready to roll, I sat down to write. I wrote a few paragraphs, but suddenly I had no interest in telling the story I’d started.  The next day I sat down to try a new story, but my protagonist, suitcase in hand, waved goodbye and sped off to the airport. 
After a couple of weeks, I’d written nothing compelling. I literally felt empty, like I had nothing interesting or meaningful to share. Stressed and depressed, I started to throw darts at the whole idea of a writi…
