Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Just when you think things are going smoothly? Wham!

RWA wanted to know why I didn’t renew my membership this year. I’ve been with since the early 2000’s. You can’t make a living being an author anymore. The publishing world is so screwed up…..

Baby Steps

I’m taking positive steps to writing again. Here is my status:

Only books available online are by Blushing Books. All the others, the rights have been returned to me.

I have three new ones that are unedited and am in the the process of composing the fourth one which is a Billionaire Series.

Looking into self publishing or perhaps a House that would be interested in my works.

I’m working my way out of the depression I’ve been in since SuperNova Indie shut down.

Adjusting to my husband working from home. We have good days and bad days.

Wishing for a vaccination for the virus. I now have quite the wardrobe of masks. But it’s so uncomfortable to wear them in the Texas Heat. Ugh!


This has been a trying time for all of us. Learning how to comprehend the new normal and be sane. My writing has suffered because of it. Other things seem to take priority so at the end of the day, all I’ve done is nothing.

It doesn’t help that the publishing world is in shambles. Authors are not getting paid what they used to and trying to get books published is next to impossible. I need to be ten people at once. Author, editor, marketing, payroll…

But for my sanity, I need to start writing again. I need to discipline to set so many hours a day to my craft. I’m comparing it to my earlier career of music. Practice makes better.

I pray everyday for better times. May God bless.

Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to my husband and all of the other Fathers out there.

Also, Happy Father’s Day to those in Heaven as well. Miss you so much!

Prayers Needed

If ever there is a time for prayers, it is now. Stop the virus; heal the nation, end racism and please Amazon, quit mistreating authors who can no longer make a living because of you.

I’m working my beads!

Laying Low

It’s very volatile out there. Sticking to safe subjects. Still coping with my attitude adjustment and my writing is minimal.

But, I will always be an author. I read a book this week that really made me think how the author handled the plot. She’s an excellent author and the book had me riveted to the point where I couldn’t put it down. But then the editor in me came out and I didn’t agree how she handled the story.

All I can say is that if any of my previous editors had looked at this manuscript, they would’ve torn it apart. But, hey. At least she has a publisher that believes in her. Sigh…..
