A New Year, A New Look, A New........

In my next newsletter I will be starting something new. For those who already subscribed to my newsletter, already see that each month I pick a new writer to "showcase", spreading information about them so you as readers may get to know him/her and the books he/she writes. Well, starting in Feb, I will be adding that information here giving that writer even more attention.

I'm always looking for new looks for my newsletters. I hate doing two issues in the same way. I don't want my readers expecting anything, except something fresh and creative. The last thing I want is to be predictable. I think that is one of the reasons why I write in different genres. Most writers will write in one or two, maybe three at the most but nothing like me. I don't like restrictions and putting a leash on my mind isn't good to say the least. I've never been the type to follow the crowd. When I was little, I didn't care what was "in" or out of fashion. I liked what I liked, did what I wanted and that was that. I am who I am.

And just like everyone else in the world, I am who I am because of things I've done, things I've seen and experienced, and because of the people in my life. Some people touched me in a good way, some bad. So with a new year coming and going, I've decided to have a new me. I've already made the decision to cut out soda (not all intake just slowed way down). That's just the beginning. Who knows what else I'm going to be doing with my life. All I know is, I need to write more books lol. And in my newsletters I'll share those books with you so you can follow my career. And hopefully, you'll get to read those books when they get published. So if you haven't subscribed to my newsletter yet, you can do that here. Or you can send me an email to

And I'm still looking for new writers to share. If you're one of them please send me an email and let me know who you are. I will gladly send you a list of questions about your books. I'll also check out your website to add more if needed. That way you can find more readers. We all know marketing isn't easy and I enjoy helping others. My daughter is working at joining us and I'm very happy about that although she has to make the decisions on her own. I just hope I can be there along the way to help her with each step toward whatever goals she makes.

Thank you very much!!!!

Baby its Cold Outside

Just like the song says, its cold outside. And I hope it doesn't last long. Records were made all over the place with the temps dropping below 0. More than half of the country was covered in white. I know it looks pretty but cold is bad.
They are closing schools, shutting the doors to other places just to keep people in doors where they can stay warm. Heating bills are going up too. I can't wait until winter is over so we can enjoy the comforts of the warmth. And then we can complain its too hot outside. With a winter this bad, I can imagine how summer is going to be--hot, hot, hot. Will they close things down cause its too hot? We'll have to wait and see. That would be different.

I heard even Niagara Falls even froze in some areas! Wow, that's cold!

Something New

Well we finally made it the new year. And since new years promise a new beginning, I've decided to make a few changes around here. Just something new for you. I hope you like this look.

At the top you will see the normal list of pages I have on my site/blog. On the far left, you can change the appearance which is totally awesome if you ask me. Go ahead and take a look. I'll wait lol.

Anyway, I figured if the whole world could get a new outlook than so could I. Its like starting all over again. Making a fresh start. So with each new day passing me by, I will give myself that fresh start. I will write more, learn more, try to read more, lose some weight lol, and hopefully find that agent I wanted to find in 2013. Yes, these things take time and I'm not rushing myself, just taking things one day at a time. Its the only way we can do this. You know that thing called living life. We only have one and I'm not wasting it. I'll even write in my blog more. I've kind of lagged a little on that area. Okay so I've lagged a lot there. I really am sorry.

I would love to hear from you. Tell me what you'd like to see in 2014. I'm all ears!

Thank you!!!
