Have you heard the phrase, ” My mind is like a web browser 19 tabs are open, 3 are frozen, and I have no idea where the music is coming from?”

Well, that’s the life of every self-published author, I suppose. I feel like all of us are running around trying to do a million things at once, even though none of us knows what we’re doing. 

So for those of you who read my last post, I’ve changed my mind and will be changing my webpage again here soon.

Originally I wanted to do a newsletter subscription to have a more intimate connection with my readers, but now I’ve decided that hey if you like me and are interested enough in what I do to come and check out my website, that’s more than enough for me. 

I will keep it to where you can sign up for updates on my blog and, of course, reach out to me through my contact page, but everything will be public content accessed through my blog.

The Gorgon and the Stranger, the short story giving you a sneak peek into the world of the Bright One Series, is currently with my editor being polished and made beautiful before I post it here on my blog, so check back soon.

Once my editor has finished with my short story, we’ll be moving right along into editing Through the Silent Forest.

Now again, please forgive me if you read my last post where I was so hopeful about a timeline for my book being produced.

I was still bouncing between choosing two publishing companies last week and ended up deciding on a different publisher than I first intended. Being an indie author, I keep hearing stories from other authors about how important things like turnaround time and publication releases are. And while I understand that yes, to have fans, I have to produce a book and get it to you, I also consider the quality of the book you’re receiving.

 For me, as a reader, I expect excellent quality in the books I read, and that’s what I want to provide. I want to ensure that my book is the best it can be, that things aren’t rushed and done right. So I decided to go with a publishing company that will be thorough in its editing and publishing process. While it might take significantly longer than I first expected (mostly due to my novel’s length), I believe the product will be well worth the wait in the end.

As I said before, everything leading up to my book’s release will be public content posted here. So check back soon! 

Here’s to editors and bloggers who make the world go round! Until next time,
