This Week

This week plan on creating blogs on both blogs, marketing my upcoming e-book (any advice would be greatly appreciated it), and wrapping projects up.

On the Writing Block:

Finish Twisted Desire, book 2 of my Twisted Series. This is merely a revision. Once it’s finished I can start the beta reading process and editing as well.

Finish writing book 2 of my Catalyst series. I am about one third done.

Read through TGB book project. Once this is done I can send it to the editor.

Put together a list of projects I need to put together. I am hoping to publish a collection of short stories sometime this year, I am still writing them. The collection is entitled The Reaper.

In other news I plan on going to the gym four times and adding zumba back into my life at least 3 times. Oh and yoga, I need to do yoga.

What’s in plan for this week?

What to do with bad days!!!!

Ever have one of those days where nothing seems to go as planned. This is my life everyday. I can wake up in the morning and plan to sit down and write all day and BAM life decides it’s not going to happen.

So instead of being bitter (most days) I use the restructed day to my advantage and day dream. Well not really day dream, more like imagine all the ways my day could have been worse. This reminds me to be thankful.

This post is to remind everyone that it may look grim out the window of your eye, but don’t give up.
Thoughts and feelings!!!

Changes!

Well the time has come for me to separate my personal writing career from my private writing….sort of. I have created a new blog to specifically to follow my journey into self-publishing.I hope you’ll join me there too.  Head on over for the full cover reveal tomorrow 🙂

Head in the Clouds

So in other news, I discovered a scratch in the middle of my less than a year old glasses. This is horrible maiinly because I only see out of one eye. Blarg!!! I am going to call my eye glass place to see if I have a warranty or something. That would be great….I wonder if they would left me change my frames too….hmmm..

I am getting ready to try It Works thermaplus….I’ll let you know how that goes. I did an awesome job with the 24 day Challenge by Advocare. I can’t wait til I can do another one in three months. I lost 12 inches!!! I am working on loosing another ten pounds. My ambitions are declining….I need to stay motivated!! Any tips?

I think my air conditioner is broke and my cat’s headed outside if he keeps not using the litter box. I don’t understand him. I think he’s just being problematic.

Biggest news of today, I lost my dad’s mother, Ginny this morning. We weren’t really close, but I am reminded that life is short and death sucks!

That’s all for now…I’ll write more tomorrow :).

Catching Up

So I just finished a 24 day challenge by Advocare!! Lost 12 inches and 5 pounds. How awesome is that? I have also beefed up my working out schedule to including the gym. This week I am going to work on implementing Zumba and Yoga into my gym schedule. Today I spend an hour walking on the treadmill and almost burned 500 calories. Now I don’t know about you, but I am one of those unfortunate people that reach a certain point and pour sweat!!! It’s crazy!!

In other news I am getting ready to start my 4th week of class. Yikes!!! It’s another thing that’s getting real. Soon I will be graduated!! With a Master’s!! What will I do then?  I mean….I work in Billing which is nothing I went to college for (psychology and sociology)

I recently finished a book, The Girl on The Train….if you liked Gone Girl you will love this book. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and the characters are relatable. Check it out!! I am going to write a review via goodreads and post a link later. Also I started reading The Martian. It has been made into a movie staring the great Matt Damon. If you read this book he’s perfect for the role. I hope they don’t mess up the writer’s integrity!! We all know how Hollywood can botch a good book!!

I”m excited for the upcoming weeks!! Publishing book, marketing said book, and even just logging in see that one sale will fly me to the moon!!!

What’s going on in your world?

Week 2: Cover Segment

Thanks for following me. This is the 2nd installment of the cover reveal!! Let me know what you think!!

I am working on getting all my ducks in a row for this journey. I started filling out KDP information and stopped. It was getting too real. I’m afraid. Yes I admit it! Dreams coming true just don’t happen. At least to me.

So with out further ado here is segment 2. Hope you enjoy!!

Cover 2

Something didn’t seem right, but I ignored my intuition and opened the door to find Jackson and Carli making out in a very compromising position. I cleared my throat and hit the door with my hand.

Startled, Jackson separated from Carli.

                “Oh don’t let me stop you. Please carry on.” I slammed the door behind me as I stomped out.
