WOW, and I thought Christmas morning was exciting but finally seeing my first book published has brought tears to my eyes. Not only that, but I now have release dates for two more books! Can it get any better? Writing is a joy for me. I believe that my health is improving only because of the focus it takes to write. With a NEVER SURRENDER! NEVER GIVE UP! attitude, I keep on moving. Nothing can slow me down when my characters are in dire need, looking for a solution to a seemingly insurmountable crisis. Lost in the world of adventure and romance, I flow with the story. It gives me a sense of being able to overcome any problems in my life, including poor health. In my mind I'm well, I'm strong and fit, smart and able to take on any 'evil villain' and win. Even if the 'evil villian' is illness. Keep up the good fight! Great things happen to those who BELIEVE! Hugs Franny Armstrong-ParaNovelGirl

Friends Make Life So Much Better!

Since becoming a writer, I've met so many wonderful people that my heart sings. There is never a dull moment in my day when I'm not working on my promotions, marketing, social networking, writing, and so on that one of my new friends comes to mind. Now I'll be blessed with the chance to meet them online on since my sister Kali Willows and I will be hosting the new show beginning on November 22 at 2-3pm! It's the best job I've ever had. Thanks to the Internet I'm meeting friends all over the world without stepping outside of my home. What a savings on gas! Happy reading and writing. Franny Armstrong-ParaNovelGirl

Being Shy Doesn't Make You Famous!

I've spent the past 8 years hiding in my home due to illness. Now that I'm a published author, there are responsibilities for me to get out and do book signings, promote, do interviews at local papers, go on BlogTalkRadio shows, and so on... After being agoraphobic for so long, it's like trying to crank a block of hardwood through a butter churn. Not easy. However, the more I do it, the more exciting it gets. The only fly in the ointment (I use the example of a fly because I have one buzzing around my desk annoying the daylights out of me) is finding enough time to fit it all into a well oiled machine as well as continue to write. Good health is a blessing that many don't appreciate until it's gone. Each day I get a little better. Somedays are better than others, however, I just keep putting one foot in front of the other and head on full steam ahead. Life is getting more wonderful as each day goes by. If I was asked what I would do if I only had one day left

Six years of professional writing. Ouch my fingers!

It's worth every cramp in my hands to type away on my stories and see them posted on the site! I'm so excited to have 'SMALL PACKAGES-A CHRISTMAS STORY' being released on December 10th. .What a great Christmas gift! Paula and Derek are mature adults who find love and romance on the high seas after losing their beloved spouses. Only the fear of loving again keeps them apart...for all of five minutes after they meet on board a cruise ship in the Caribbean. How romantic is that? This one is purely romance, my friends. It doesn't matter if you are 18 or 180 and want to read it, I'm sure it will light the fires of your heartstrings. I cried, I laughed, I sat on the edge of my seat while writing it. I fell in love with my characters. Writing is my greatest love, after my family of course. What do you love about a good romance novel?

My first Christmas gift!

This year I'll be offering a wonderful Christmas idea. My first paranormal romance should be out in December but that's not official as yet so don't quote me. What an awesome idea to give a gift certificate for a download of an ebook to your family member or friend. The easiest way to shop for a gift is to give them something that they can download right from the comfort of home. They can read online or download into an eReader or Kindle. Check out my website for information on product launches. My sister, Kali Willows is also going to be launching her 'Unconditional Love Series' in 2010.
