So glad to see you here! Thanks once again for keeping up with my progress on this writing journey. I hope I never get to the point where I eventually ended up with my artwork. I just kind of wound down and my creative well ran dry after a while. I still have ideas but just no energy or ambition to devote to them. I haven't dropped it completely because I'm still creating art for my books. But it's no secret to anyone who knows me well I have a tendency to drop things if I feel they've become more of a burden than a joy.
Writing's always been easier for me than art, so that's a point in its favor. I hope writing never gets to the point of being a burden for me. I want to continue to enjoy writing. I'd sacrifice this blog before giving up on my novels, but I hope I don't allow myself to get to the point where that becomes necessary.
If y'all pray, please continue to lift me up. Writing has been a struggle since last year I decided to push Over Land & Under Stone into the number 3 slot for the Children of Y'Dahnndrya series. That was not an easy decision since I talked it up so much as book two. But I know in the long run, it'll be better for the series as a whole and the readers, I believe, will be more satisfied.
Moving on to the challenges! And don't forget to read to the end so you don't miss my big news!

Editing continues but the pace is still slow. I hope I can pick it up a little more next week!
OK! Time for the big news! It's a Sale!!
For the first time ever, I'm offering the first installment of my Children of Y'Dahnndrya series for a reduced price. With people having to stay home because of the nasty virus going around, I thought I'd join the large number of authors who are lowering the price on their ebooks during this time. So from today (March 20, 2020) until the end of April (April 30, 2020), you can get the ebook format of Ripples (Children of Y'Dahnndrya book 1) for only $0.99! That's right, I've hacked $2.00 off the price for a limited time.
If you've been seeing the snippets from Surge and thought you'd enjoy reading that book, you'll want to read Ripples first. Now's the time to buy! Click on the book cover at the left or click here to choose your favorite ebook store. (Note: If your store of choice hasn't updated the price yet, give them a day or so to get on board. Just keep checking the site as Draft2Digital warns some stores take a little longer to adjust the price.)
What are you waiting for? The adventure begins inside!
PS - Do you already have a copy? Did you love it and maybe want to share it with a friend? It would make a great gift, too. And feel free to spread the word on your favorite social media site. I'd appreciate that so much!
If you like what you see here and want to keep up with my challenge responses, then please check back next Friday to see the new round. If you'd rather keep up with my reviews and the books I'm adding to my shelves, then check back on Wednesdays to see book reviews, what I'm currently reading, and what I'm adding to my TBR list.
Thanks again for stopping by!
