I’m a busy girl. I won’t even tell you everything that takes up my week. But what I will tell you is that I love to write, so no matter how busy I am, I will write every Saturday night. Saturday night is my time. I take 2 hours or so every week to devote to my book. I love it. It is my favorite time. However, because I have such a huge gap between each writing, I’m insecure. I come back to it questioning whether or not what I wrote the week before was any good. I go back and read what I wrote to get back in the moment…I think it’s good, I hope it is, I hope my readers enjoy it. But the bottom line is, I do. I get going on each chapter each week and when I’ve finished after about two hours I’m amazed by what I just did. And tonight is another successful night. I love it, even if it goes nowhere, even if people don’t get me, or get my book. I love it. I love creating and I loved seeing where my characters went tonight, unplanned by me and taken away quickly by the tick tick of my keyboard.
I am happy to announce that my novel “The Light of the Blue Pearl” has been published! It’s been a couple of weeks now, already…my post is a little late because I was spending time getting the book ready for Smashwords as well. Learning the process of publishing has been time consuming, but also very rewarding. My novel has now been distributed to many different channels including, Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble and more…
Last night I finished setting up my “Pay with a Share” button, you can find that on my homepage. If you’d like to get my novel for free it will only cost you a Twitter tweet or Facebook post! So go grab your copy now 🙂
My novel has been out for only a short time but it has already been selling and getting very nice reviews, I’m both excited and humbled and look forward to hearing more feedback from you all. After you’ve read it please leave a comment or review on my webpage, Amazon, Smashwords or Goodreads. I appreciate the help in spreading the word about my novel so much. After you’ve left a review please contact me and I will send you a free copy of the official soundtrack for my novel that was written by KAT. Currently, the four song album is only available by purchase, but I can pull some strings for my readers 😉

Hello!! Welcome to my website 🙂 I am so excited that my debut novel will be out very soon…within hours. I’ve been working on it for quite a few months now, inspiration struck me one day and I began “The Light of the Blue Pearl” on a whim. I enjoyed each and every day that I wrote it and began a second novel before I had even finished it.
The past few months have been spent editing, refining, perfecting and learning the world of self-publishing. I cannot wait to get it out to all of you.
As you’ll note there is a “soundtrack” that goes with this book. Thank you so much to Kat (@katsember) for writing two beautiful songs that went with my book so perfectly.
The next post will be my celebration that my book “The Light of the Blue Pearl” is finally available on Amazon.com!
