Traditional Holiday Posts

So here’s the dish: A lot of bloggers post on holidays. They have wonderful posts. I usually don’t write them because, well, you know, they’re just boring. I mean, I don’t have anything to add that Hallmark hasn’t already said. And I usually don’t read them either because they generally, you know, pertain exactly to the holidays to which they credit. But there are a lot of writers out there who are well meaning and offer sincere, superb words. So here’s to those.


And, uh, happy…Valentine’s…Day.

Working on Sequels

I made an appointment with my editor for February to discuss going forward with Sir Ivan’s Train; Wizard Ring. I’m excited to get the sequel underway finally, but I’m also nervous. Lately, I’ve had to work an average of 60hrs a week between two jobs, and combined with boyfriend time, that does not leave a lot of time or energy for editing. I also have about eight illustrations to work on as well as the cover to design. It’s a lot of work on my plate. But you never know what you can accomplish until you try, correct?

Wish me luck, folks. This may be my last book published for awhile. Fanny needs break. 😉 
This has been,

Good Advice to Writers

As a writer, you need:  

Faith in yourself as a writer; faith in the importance of what you are writing; faith that there will be an audience for what you will write; faith that your writing will contribute ultimately to the flourishing of those who read it; and finally, faith in the source of your desire to write.

This is probably the most humbled, encouraging, and realistic advice on publishing a book I have ever read.
