|Wohooo for me!!
Just got word that my dark paranormal DEMON FIRE finaled in the Salt Lake City RWA Great Beginnings Contest, in the published author category. The final judge is Kristen Nelson...
WOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO for me!!!
Now, that makes two finals for RWA contest for me so far. I'm waiting on two more. And am sending to two more. I'm a contest junkie now!!! LOL SWORD MAIDEN won the REveal YOur Inner Vixen contest last year in the alternative category.
Yeah, I'm feeling pretty good right now. Now, if those agents would call me!!!

I'm finally back from a crazyness I suffered. The crazyness about finding an agent. No, I haven't found one, yet....but have high hopes that I will this month. *crossing fingers, lighting candles, incanting weird voodoo*
I think I want to document my journey to find an agent. Could be good for other writers, aspiring writers. Maybe even for myself....
I'll think on it some more.
I'm off to have a nap, as I was at the hospital with my daughter...and we are both very tired. Current Mood: blah

|A word to my beloved
I found out today, that my good friend Michael Davies (Emy Naso) died. Here is a man that I never actually met face to face, but over the past year through loving messages and amazing support and kindness I fell in love with him. I fell in love with all of him and his family, his wife and his kids. Oh, such amazing people they are.
You see Mike was more than a friend to me. He was a light, a beacon, in this foggy hazy world of life and writing. He always had a wonderful kind word for me. His support and love embraced me when I wasn't sure if I could continue to write. He was always there when I asked. And every time he wrote to me, he would send his love to me and my daughter. He cared. That was what was so special about him, what made him stand out from so many. He cared. His heart was so big...it even sustained him through three near deaths and living with disease and blindness. The man despite his ailments was the kindest, smartest, wisest, most beautiful person I ever had the pleasure of knowing.
Now he is gone....and I am at a loss.
One of the last messages I got from him, was a note telling me he dedicated his last book to me. You see that's how special he is...he always thought of others first. It was never about him, it was always about others, and their achievements, their successes. He was so modest about his own brilliance.
I'm going to dedicate a page on my site for him. It is the least I can do for a man that has blessed me with knowing him. He was a great writer and a great person.
I will miss you greatly Michael Davies!!!!

|Conquered the World
Okay, not THE world, but the World Tour for my daughter's school project. We definitely had the best display and the most research done on our country! Yeah....go team!! Stress is gone, and now I can relax a little and start to outline my new book series. WOHOOO!! Very happy about that.

swear words used: 52 1/2
impure thoughts: 0...could be why I'm frustrated
acts of violence: 1...broke pencil in half, oh and threw socks across the room!
Yes, another frustrating day today. I was all set to outline a new series I'm really excited about, when I had to deal with a school project crisis. You see I homeschool, and we're doing a huge project on Australia. We're invovled in a World Tour on Saturday, and we have a whole bunch to do...likely because I'm a procrastinator....LOL
So, I didn't get to outline...and now I'm outta sorts! Now I'm going to vent.......ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
Whew...that feels better! LOL

|Hanging onto my sanity
Okay, I'm not sure why I'm on here...except someone told me that blogs are great. Really? Why? What other purpose is this but for me to rant to....myself...
So here I am, ranting.
I'm in the publishing industry...or to say I'm a writer. A literary slut actually. I'll write anything for money. But my problem is this...I have about oh say four ideas on the go and not enough time to get any of them done. I'm stuck, is what I am. While trying to finish one book for one publisher, I'm trying to finish book one of a trilogy so I can start looking for an agent (again!) and a publisher for it. In the meantime of that, I have a great idea for a series of nine books that would work right now....being that the genre is so hot. So what do I do?
I haven't a friggin' clue!!!
I'm running around with my head cut off trying desperately to make a living. So why did I choose this life? Because I can't not write!!! I friggin' love it!! Although I feel like I'm going insane half the time, I wouldn't choose another life. Weird, hey? Yup...that's me weird incarnate!!
So there it is....my little rant of the day.
Any other writers out there care to rant??? Rant away! Get it off your chest, my friend. You'll feel better for it.
