Book Bloggers

Or, as I like to call them, my heroes.

I just want to say thank you to all of the amazing book bloggers who have not only taken the time to review Gateway, but were willing to give a self-published e-book a shot. All authors depend on reviews and word of mouth, but with indie authors that need is greatly magnified. Even were a reviewer to not care for my book I would appreciate their willingness to read it!

I believe in my novel and the series it kicks off, but knowing there are others out there who have enjoyed it is inspiring. Knowing they'll take the time to tell others is absolutely fabulous!

Thanks again!

I'm not Gonna Lie...

It's been rough going this past week. I came back from Europe feeling invigorated and inspired, and then... I'm not sure what happened. Maybe it was just life that happened. I started feeling less than thrilled with what I was writing. Then I had a relationship rift I needed to heal. You know how draining that can be. The next day came the $1100 tax bill from incorrectly reporting my earnings in 2009.

I gave myself a couple of days to check out and recover, but it's been a few, and I haven't. I still feel blah and I still am not excited about where my story is going, even though logically, I think it's going in the right direction. I've just lost the juice, the passion to get the words down on paper and I'm afraid that I might not find it anytime soon.

And it's not just a passion for writing, I'm kind of feeling turned off by most things, which is a red alert for someone who suffers from depression. I'm doing my best to weather the storm and I hope it doesn't last too long.
