Good News!

I would Love to have an apple tree in my future backyard someday!Have you heard the saying the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree?

Well, in this case it’s true! My boy-o was entered in a poetry contest (he claims he didn’t know) and according to the letter we received his poem was selected by The American Library of Poetry to be published in this year’s book of poetry, Eloquence.

Yup, this proud mama is cheesing hard. Of course, the kid doesn’t even remember the poem (I do, he asked me to read it before he turned it in.) It was for extra credit in history class. Amazing, he’ll be published at fourteen and he’s acting as if he doesn’t care. Maybe he’ll feel different when he actually holds the book in his hands and sees his name in print. It’s an awesome feeling. We’re very proud of our boy.

I also got some good news of my own. My first chapter for Innocent Sacrifice (the latest novel I’m working on) got accepted for the HD California Writers Club Anthology. Plus I’m working with a fellow author on her book launch.

So much stuff in going on…and yet I want more. Does that seem greedy?

I can’t help it. I got a taste of the good stuff and I want to bathe in it, baby!

Let’s go to the Library

Is my book really going to be in a library? It sure is!

LibrariesApparently, one of the libraries in my area supports local authors and my writing club reached out to everyone to let us know, “Hey, stop by the library and donate your book so it can be placed on the shelf.”

Well, this got me thinking what if the other libraries accepted donated books and it was just a matter of review and approval to be placed on the shelves?

Next week, the plan of action is to hit up another library and my son’s school.

I know as an entrepreneur I want to sell books, but as a writer I just want people to read my story and have it make a difference.

It’s a fine line between being an artist and trying to pay some bills. Black Widow and Whisper... I like this I could do this one! lol I have the exact outfit? Just not sure how to make it look realistic cause I cant do it do it lol
