Off The Cuff

The countdown is on…

HAPPY 6TH OF JUNE!!!

No, this is not a special day for me.  Not that I know of anyway.  I just wanted to shout that out there, LOL

So, there’s only 14 more school days left and the kids will be free from their institutions LOL.  Then they will have summer holidays that runs for about two and a half months.  Well here it’s that long. Depending on where you are in the world, your Summer vacation might be longer or shorter.

But just think on that for a moment though.

Kids have 2.5 months of vacation.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have that too?

Seriously,, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have summers off without loosing any pay?

Then again, maybe not.

Though, summers are not all fun and games.  Especially for my two kids.  And especially not for this year.

My oldest is autistic, so he needs a routine.  I just wish part of his routine would to realize that you can sleep in during summer holidays.  Then again, it would be awesome if he would do that on weekends, LOL.  But at least it keeps me from sleeping too much day away.

My youngest on the other hand, love sleeping in.  Can’t say as I blame her,,, I love my bed too.  But there’s things that just needs to get done.  Eventually she will come to realize that.

However on that note, I do have a math workbook to help her prepare for the next grade.  And she’s got the first 4 Harry Potter books to read.  I’m still working on book 5, *rolls eyes*.  Why did this book have to be the one with 800 PAGES?!  Seriously Ms. Rowling,,, what the devil were you thinking?  🙂

Speaking of writing.  I have 2 of my own to get finished up.  Maybe this will be the summer that I’ll actually get them done.  This is why I need an agent, preferably for free, LOL.  Although, I do have amazing friends who keeps me on my toes and keeps pushing me to get them done.  Especially the sequel.

Seriously, to those of you who has the first book,,, I’m reeeeeeeeeally sorry it’s not done yet.  I’m now thinking I should have just waiting on publishing it in the first place until I can have a proper ending for it.  I’m trying to keep it the same amount of pages as the first, but it’s becoming to be a chore.  I can only drag out so many scenes before it starts to become boring.

Plus making sure the first lot of chapters reads right is a challenge as well.  So not only do I need an agent,,, apparently I need an editor as well.  There’s only so many times I can re-read it to make sure I have all the grammar errors corrected.  Though, I have to thank Word for underlining words I’ve either spelled wrong, or a sentences that doesn’t make sense.  And someone who’s dyslexic trying to figure out another way to write a sentence to make it read right is a challenge in itself.

Hence another reason for such a delay in getting anything published.  Distractions.  And I have a lot of them, LOL.

And specking of distractions,, this is one of them.  So I shall head off and get some things accomplished today.  Wish me luck, 🙂

Until next time,,,

An Author I Am

A few years ago, when I published my first book, my daughter looked at me and said, “You’re an author now?”  My reply was, “I guess you can say that.”  I didn’t go to your typical publishing company.  Mainly because I couldn’t afford their service, still can’t. But I done the next best thing, thanks to an awesome friend for the tip, and done it myself online.

I figure one of these days I’ll get to that point where I can go to the bigger businesses and get my name out there through them.  Until then, I’ll have to do it on my own.

But when my daughter said that to me, I couldn’t picture myself as an author.  At the time I was associating the term author with such people like J.K. Rowling.  And I was nowhere near it.  I dream that one day I’ll reach that level, but until then, I’m just little ole me.

My first book did sell great at first.  Huge thanks to my hubby who promoted it at his work. 🙂  But that’s what I’m lacking.  Someone to promote my work because I suck at it.  For me to promote myself I feel like I’m bragging, or trying to shove something into people’s faces.  And that’s not me.  Hence the reason why it hasn’t sold in a while.  But I’ve come to the realization that in order for me to get my name out there and to sell loads of books (present and future books), I need to start.

So here it goes…

Click on the image and pick up your copy today (the $14.99 one). The other options for buying my book is not associated with me so therefore I’ll never get paid for those purchases.

The One

Now I can concentrate on writing the sequel to this one AND finish the other book I’ve started during November when I signed up with NaNoWriMo.

That was an experience to say the least.  It was my first time joining the site, and one I will join again.  If I don’t get the book finished before then, I’ll finish it off with their help again.  The cover to this story I already have.  It’s the cover to the sequel I’m still working on. Hopefully with a friends help, I’ll have that soon and will have something to promote yet again.  So stay tuned.

Speaking of writing, I best be off now.  I have my usual duties to get done around the house before I can sit back with another cuppa tea, sit back and start writing.

Thank you for popping by to read my posts,,, ❤

Until next time.
