2021 - The year that has gotten away.

 It's October 18. 



Where has this year gone?

I mean sure. There have been struggles in the personal and family life that directly affect the productivity of the professional life, and I believe that family should always come first. But... OCTOBER? 18th?

Seems like this time last year I was full of hope and dreams and... ya.

We all know what 2020 and 2021 have been like. No matter who you are and where you live you have been affected. I pray you are safe.

Moving on.

I have found myself in a position where I can focus more on my pseudo-hobbies while still working at my place of employment. I am not teaching aside from homeschool my 16 yo at this point and am enjoying the ability to explore areas I have not in recent years.

My focus in my downtime is still writing. I have a project that involves lots of writing I am doing with my job and I am working on another non-fiction book. My next book has the tentative title "I Call Him Lord". The title is subject to change as the book comes to completion. It will be a full-length book and I pray I can get the bulk of it done in the next two months. I have researched off and on the last few years, so it is really a matter of pulling all the research together and putting it in the correct format.

Good Morning!

Once I have that book finished, I have one fiction book that at this time looks to be a stand-alone book and then another that will head a series. Both of these are WIP that has been set on the shelf for now.

Hobby-wise, I have decided to see if I can get back into crochet. I used to crochet as a child and when arthritis grasped my hands as a teen I quit. Just like cross-stitch and embroidery. I would like to return to those as well. :) I also sketch and do photography. 

Professionally, I am working on my graphic design skills. I taught desktop publishing for a few years and I want to get back at the top of my game with it. (It also helps with marketing and self-publishing.)

So that's my update for now. 


P.S. Don't forget that Advent: A Journey of Preparation is available on Amazon!

Publishing News

 As my nanowrimo writing was taken off, I found an old pamphlet I had written about Advent. Given that I have a writer's mind, I became obsessed with this pamphlet. IT needed some work though.

Fast forward. I worked on the devotional book last week, updating and adding to it.

So now, it is available on Amazon in print and digital. You can access them from my Amazon Author Page.

In Paperback: Advent a Journey of Preparation As eBook: Advent a Journey of Preparation

Needless to say, my nano writing project stalled. Plus I am taking part in an anthology group that will be published shortly as well. I do believe that my writer's block has been broken. For this I am thankful.

The anthology story I am writing brings back a character of mine that has wanted to be written about for a long time and I just didn't have what I needed to get it written.

I can not wait to share more publishing news!
