How is everyone? I have been so busy and it is driving me nuts because my busyness is focused on things I must do (work, laundry, school – not doing well in biology) instead of things I want to do (writing, editing, exercise). I am still telling everyone my second book will drop on March 27th! Pre-order your physical copy today. I can’t do a presale for the Kindle book for some reason… KDP is starting to get on my nerves. My writing future surely is dim if I don’t figure out a better way to market myself and my work.

I did, however, receive my first payment as an author! ❤ It went into my bank account this morning.

Besides two books of poetry published and a novel due to publish later this year, I have been thinking about my next project:


But here is the thing… I have been blessed with so much craziness and irony in my life that I am having a hard time narrowing down which part to write about. My psychic advisor told me to write my life story, but I am not famous yet so no one cares about my entire life. So, I want to write about a part of my life that will help or inspire people to know they can overcome obstacles in their life.

Here are a few of the topics I would like to write about:

  • My journey through my last year of addiction and into my first year of sobriety.
  • Being married, 19 and pregnant, and raising two small children while living in a bar motel room for a year from 1991 – 1992. (It was pretty crazy)
  • My last full year of addiction, which was ridiculous.

So those are a few topics I would like to write about. I am strongly considering the second choice. Which would you choose?

  1. I think I’d be most likely to read Option 2…Provided that it included an epilogue letting the reader know how things are working after the focus period. I’d hate to leave you stranded in Hell.
    I’m just starting to warm up to the whole marketing thing (which does NOT come naturally to me) as my debut chapbook (Fallen Away) goes into its pre-publication marketing phase in May for a projected September release from Finishing Line Press. Oy; I hope I’m up for it. I’ll keep ya posted.

  2. I’m doing well, thank you, but like you, busy. I finally posted today after a 5-day absence from blogging. Congratulations on the forthcoming novel. Of your memoir ideas, I’m most intrigued by #2. It seems like #s 1 & 3 would go together for a separate memoir.

    Take care, be well, and happy Blogging!
