Eyes Wide Shut Edition Three

I did not want to busy myself with editing Eyes Wide Shut again, but after some feedback from some family and friends I decided I would do some minor changes with words I used too much.  I am actually happy with the changes and it did not take as long as I thought it would.  I have gone ahead and submitted the new changes to Amazon and the third edition is now available!

I debated on having my own book cover designed.  A friend of mine told me about Fiverr and I have been looking around on there for a month or two.  I finally found someone who I thought could design what I was looking for, not only for the E-book but for a hard copy if I choose to go that route. He did a fantastic job!  I am very satisfied with his design!  Here is the final print...

I am looking into printing my book through Createspace through Amazon.  I am also looking into submitting the book to some agents.  I am still working on book two and I am excited to have Alerrandre design the next cover as well! 

Please share the link to my e-book and download if you have not done so already!

My Writer's Block

It seems like I am spending every day thinking and dreaming of writing.  My childhood was spent daydreaming of different worlds, different people, different creatures and I would write random stories describing them.  My mom once told me, if we dream it, God has created it.  In my life now and my questions about god, I am not sure about what she said.  However, in my heart I want to believe in all of it.  I want there to be dragons, pixies, mermaids, magic, etc.  I want there to be more.

My books will not be perfect.  Especially my first book.  It was edited only by myself.  I had no outside influence.  And even if I did, there would still be people who do not like it.  I have not received much feedback, but I am determined to let Theia's Moons take the life it deserves.  This next book in the series will be better and the one after that will be even better.  It has been difficult, because my writer's block has been consistent and I feel only getting a paragraph here and there is holding me back.

I see it.

I feel it.

The story is in my mind.  I have seen it from beginning to end.  I know what I want the story to BE.  I just have this challenging writer's block.  I can not seem to get it from my brain to the paper.  It comes at such a snails pace that I want to give up at times.  I have a library of stories to tell, but moving them from my mind to the keyboard has been more than problematic.

This, my friends, is the worst of writer's block.  Knowing you have the story, knowing you have so much to say, but for some reason it feels impossible to express.

If you have read Theia's Moons Eyes Wide Shut, please send your feedback.  I can use the assistance.  I can use the constructive criticism.  If you have not downloaded the book, below is the link to the e-book on Amazon.

Let me know what you think.

The good, the bad and even the ugly.

Thanks friends.

Theia's Moons Book Two - Sneak peek

Malkia could feel the sadness before she walked into the kitchen.  She knew someone had maliciously taken these people’s lives and whoever it was wanted her to see it.  Her eyes scanned the room from the doorway and noticed the woman sitting on the chair next to the cleaning sink.  Her head had been leaned back onto the edge of the sink, her eyes wide with fear but drained of all life.  There was the hushed dripping of blood in the basin, which grew deafening as she stared at the dead eyes.  Malkia noticed the direction the woman’s eyes were focused towards and her gut hurt as she turned to see the view.

Dreams… I have not always been following my dreams.  In fact, there was a time I thought I was too old to go back to even dreaming.  Then I attended Impact Trainings and my whole life and perspective changed. 

I remember before these trainings I would look at others accomplishments and successes and I would feel the twinge of jealousy, sadness and a feeling of failure in some way or other.  I was happy for them, but sad for my lack of success in the world.  Sure, I had received a bachelor’s degree.  And I had created two amazing children, which in my eyes were my number one success and still are (along with the third rugrat as well). 

However, I had lost my way when it came to my passion. 

You know… that one or many things which makes your heart feel free and flying.

Writing has always been it for me.  I began writing when I was very young, along with reading anything I could get my hands on.  There was something about disappearing into the land of fantasy and fiction and I could not get enough of it.  English and writing were my favorite subjects in high school and college and I continued to write as much as possible.  However, after marriage and kids my path changed significantly.  I would read on occasion, but my writing became less and less.  I was losing my passion in life and I did not even see it coming.

It was not until these trainings that I remembered I could still have these dreams and passions.  I could pick up where I had left off so many years before and do what I love most in life.

At first it was small.  I began my first blog and wrote small entries here and there and it felt satisfying.  It wasn’t that I got a mass amount of traffic, because I didn’t.  The part that was fulfilling was writing what I wanted and putting it out there for the world to see. 

A few years of blogging small, I began pushing my blog out there for others to see more of.  To this day it is not a top blog (not even close), but I get regular traffic, even when I have not written anything for a while.

I also began writing my novel.

Seriously, this was my thrill!

My passion was becoming more and more alive!

It did take me four years to finish, re-write, edit and then finally publish on Amazon, but I did it.  Some say self-publishing an e-book does not make you an author and maybe they are right, however I do not worry about those people.

I am doing.

I am not sitting around waiting for life to happen.

I am following my dreams and passions.

I am happy!

I feel successful. 

I also am very aware this is only the beginning and I am okay with that.  I am excited to move forward and see where life goes.

I have an amazing support system.  Friends and family who jumped in.  They did not wait to see if I would be successful.  They did not sit back and see if others responded first.  They jumped in with both feet and have supported me from day one. 

These people are my heroes.

They are the people I look at with admiration.

They did not question my abilities as a writer.  They believed in me without the proof.  

I am full of gratitude for these people.  I am the lucky one to have people like them in my life!!

I am on my third month with my book on Amazon and I am working on the second book.  I feel excited for my life.  Yes, writing is not the only thing that creates this excitement in my life, but it definitely is in my top three!  

I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read my blogs, follow my writings and shares in my success.  Thank you for taking the time, because as a working mother I understand the lack of time in a person’s life!

For those who are seeing this for the first time, the link to my e-book is below.  If you feel you could take the time to download it and hopefully read it, I would greatly appreciate it.  And as always, let me know what you think.  Feedback is my drug right now.  I want to know how I impact others.  All of it, even the bad.  So, please post a review on Amazon, my blog, facebook, email or even PM me. 

Thanks friends!
