Collide Is A Finalist



Many of you have heard about Collide becoming a finalist in the 2015 Kindle Book Awards. But if you didn't hear about - here is the scoop.

I entered Collide on a whim, really. I love the book, but it hasn't really gained the traction I hoped it would. Now, as I really work on the sequel (a previously abandoned miss that really needs to get
finished), I am loving the storytelling again. I was thrilled when it made it into the semi-finals. And when I found out that it had made it into the finals - the top five in each category - I was blown-away. The timing of the news was perfect, helping me to move forward on the project and not abandon it.

Thursday I'll find out who wins the Kindle Book Awards in each category. I am hopeful and content with whatever the outcome may be. Making it this far has been fabulous. Especially when the judges of the award have stated that the field is very competitive this year.


Regardless of how things turn out, I am busy working on Outbreak. I am determined to have it ready to release before the end of the year. And I'm finishing up the series at the same time so there isn't such a long time between books this time around.

What are you reading/working on these days?

Feeling Rejuvenated!

I've been gone for a long time. In truth, I have been trying to decide what blogging means to me. Heck, what writing means to me. In the process, I've changed my day-job, pulling that part of myself more into alignment with the things that are important to me. I've also freed up time for writing, blogging, etc. In short, I've been going through a ton of change.

All good, I assure you. But something that has taken quite a bit of time and contemplation. In the end, I think I have figured out the "why" behind my writing and coaching careers - something I've been searching for. 

More on that in future posts. This post is simply to say I'm back. My goal is to post with more regularity - 1-3 times/weekly depending on what is going on in my life. In addition, I am sharing links about creativity and writing daily on my Facebook author page. If you aren't following it, you may want to go and give it a like.

I plan to post my thoughts related to writing, the creative process, inspiration and similar topics. If there are other things you'd like to know about, please leave a little note in the comments. I miss the conversations and connections we shared in the past through this blog and am hoping to reconnect.

Enjoy the week and I can't wait to chat again...
