IS WISHING ALL MY WONDERFUL READERS A VERY SAFE, HEALTHY, AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VISITING, SHARING YOUR THOUGHTS, AND SUPPORTING MY BLOG.
HAVE BIG PLANS THIS YEAR. I'M GOING TO BE WORKING VERY HARD KEEPING MY DREAM ALIVE AND WELL. I JUST SIGNED A THREE BOOK DEAL WITH
CRIMSON ROMANCE TO RELEASE THE LAST THREE BOOKS IN MY SHADOW SERIES: IN THE
SHADOW OF MALICE, MARCH 10TH, IN THE SHADOW OF PRIDE, JULY 14TH, AND IN THE
SHADOW OF VENGEANCE, DECEMBER 22ND. WHO SAYS DREAMS DON'T COME TRUE!!!
TRYING SO HARD NOT TO PANIC ABOUT THE WORK I HAVE AHEAD. 2013 PROVED TO ME THAT
THROUGH HARD WORK, A LOT OF DETERMINATION, AND A LITTLE LUCK, I CAN DO ANYTHING
I SET MY MIND TOO. MY WONDERFUL KIDS PRINTED OUT AND FRAMED THE QUOTE FROM
THEODORE ROOSEVELT BELOW TO HELP ME DEAL WITH THE HIGH AND LOWS THAT COME WITH
REACHING OUT FOR AN OVERWHELMING DREAM. I PLAN TO KEEP IT VERY CLOSE TO MY
LAPTOP. I HOPE IT CAN HELP YOU AS WELL GET THROUGH THE JOYS AND HEARTACHES THAT COME WITH
REACHING FOR YOUR DREAM. IT HAS ALREADY LIGHTENED MY HEART.
“It is not the critic who
counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the
doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is
actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who
strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is
no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the
deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in
a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high
achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring
greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who
neither know victory nor defeat.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
WHAT ARE YOUR DREAMS FOR 2014? I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT THEM.
