Getting Near The Wire

Book Launch in Final Preparations

Just nine more days until my book launch! I am so nervous and so excited all the same time! The flyers are up all over the county. I have contacted the media and I am tracking the books on FedEx. they should be here this weekend.. Now all I have to do is work out the details. I am working on a speech for the book launch. It can’t get any more exciting than this!

Final cover for A Cowards Solace


A Coward’s Solace Is Available on Kindle!

Whether or not you plan to attend the book launch, (or whether or not you are even able to attend the book launch or not), A Coward’s Solace is available on Amazon Kindle! If you are intrigued by real events from a fictional prospective, you will love A Coward’s Solace. If you like a good love story, you’ll also enjoy A Coward’s Solace. If you are looking to be inspired, again, you will love Book III of The Locket Saga: A Coward’s Solace. Now available on Amazon Kindle.

No Longer Afraid

The other day when I was putting my flyers for the book launch of Book III of the Locket Saga: A Coward’s Solace and the flyer for the writer’s group around town, I put on my Nikes and called them “my just do it” shoes. I liked the play on their logo because it reminded me of this month’s affirmation. I will do it anyway, even if I am afraid.
What is amazing is that this week I discovered something truly amazing. I am no longer afraid. What was fear has now been redefined as excitement. Whether the book launch or the writer’s group is a success or not, I have discovered that I am enjoying the journey.
I am also no longer looking at problems as problems, but rather as challenges that I have to overcome. I have discovered that I am not panicking over every one of these challenges as they come up.
Allowing Room For Others To Procrastinate
I have learned that I am a lot more dependable than several people that I have worked with recently. Although it is frustrating, because I have developed a do-it-now mentality, I get projects out of my hands and into the hands of others sooner so that if they do procrastinate, I can be (as I told one person) the squeaky wheel. Although I am frustrated, I am less frustrated than I would be if I didn’t have this mentality. Dealing with other people is after all just another challenge.

Have Had Calls About the Writer’s Group

since putting up the flyers for the Writer’s Group, I have been receiving calls and continuing my arrangements for the first meeting. I still have to create itinerary and questionnaire handouts for the meeting.and I have to rehearse my speech, Just over a week and it will be history! How time flies when you’re having fun!

More Event In The Works

In October, I plan on participating in another event both as an author and as the president of the writers group. I will have more about that as time draws closer.
In the meantime, I want to work on participating in more book signings around the area and continue to expand my book sales region, more on that later too.
