Spring and Babies...rebirth and life!

What makes spring seem closer than ever? The birth of a child. My friends became grandparents today to a sweet little baby girl. I'm not envious of them at all because my own daughter brings my birthday gift in April, a grandson! Okay, well I might be a little jealous that they got a head start, but who cares? I can practically feel their joy from here where I sit.

I heard bad news about a friend from school today. She's going to have a double mastectomy, chemo, and radiation. And in that you see the balance of life. As an author, I use my emotions ( a wide variety at that ) to offer to readers a rollercoaster of tears and joy, fear and the thrill of the chase.

Life is like that. One minute you feel so sad for a friend or relative, or even a country like Haiti for that matter, then one tiny life will lift you up and bring you to the forefront of bliss.

May all your joys make the sad things in life easier to deal with. If the tears I bring you are happiness, then I've done my job...and well.

Blessings Abound

How Many Books Can I Write In A Year?

Who knows, but I sure plan on pumping them out to clear out the millions of stories in my head. Having characters trying to break out at all hours of the day and night is hard on your sleep schedule. LOL

Please don't mention the voices to any doctors or I might end up in the paddywagon. I also write under three pseudonyms for different genres: paranormal romantic suspense/comedy fiction, non-fiction about environmental illness, and erotic romance. I just hope I won't get them mixed up. HAHAHA

This year I plan on having many guests on this blog site and welcome anyone who would like to join me, as long as its about books, and you have a great sense of humor when writing it because it's all about FUN.

I'm having a contest in February on http://www.paranovelgirls.com/ for Red Rose Author's only to tell Kali Willows and I what the strangest, wackiest, weirdest way to social network is. We want authors to make us cry tears of mirth! The winner will receive a free copy of Wounded Spirits which Kali will be releasing on February 18th as well as a gift certificate to purchase books online at http://www.redrosepublishing.com/

Hope to see you there!
