Time

For months, years really, I have kicked myself for not getting my books out as fast as I initially

wanted.  I was uber eager at the beginning, swearing I would get 4-6 books out a year.  Can we say overzealous?!

As I continue to work on The Return of Zelda Mae Pearl (Village Vixens - Book 1) I can see how what I thought was lost time was really a blessing.When I first started writing the story, it was a lot of sex....I mean A LOT - she was with four different men before the end of chapter five!  I was being bombarded with the 'sex sells' mantra and was writing something that wasn't what I really wanted to write.

Fast forward to today, nearly eighteen months later, and I'm so thankful for the delays that have come up.  They have broadened my perspectives and helped me evaluate the kind of stories I really want to write.  Yes, there is still a lot of sex in this book - but it is also about more than that.

This story, along with my others, is about the journey of self-discovery, being confident in yourself, and following your heart - wherever it may lead.  I know more than ever I am proud of the book I am creating and I truly can't wait to get it out to you all....but I will take as much time as I need to get it right.  I owe that to you as readers and to myself as a writer.

As if having a full-time desk job, being a single mom, and being self-published wasn't enough, I've also branched out and created my own life coaching business.  I figure the saying about lemons into lemonade is true - I'm taking the hard lessons and bumps and bruises I've endured and using them to help others navigate as they work to reach their goals as well.

If you are interested in learning more about my life coaching business, head over to my other blog.  Don't worry, I won't be bombarding this blog with that information.  I am keeping them all separate and will not be duplicating all over the place.

Stay tuned, I have a feeling by the end of the month I may be doing a first chapter reveal....do you know what that means?  That means the book is almost finished!
