See if you get inspired and come back to it at full strength. If that doesn't happen, then you don't dwell on it, you focus on what made you start writing the book in the first place or what you like most about it, and plow through the roadblocks without looking back.

Once you complete a book, get it published, and in your hands, its a feeling of everlasting accomplishment unlike anything else. In the end, you learn a lot about yourself, because every author has to overcome challenges and the finished product is vindication and proof to the world of that.(less)

My book TREASURE FEVER is complete!

Hi everyone, just wanted to share the good news, my 6th book TREASURE FEVER: The Hunt for El Dorado is now finished! I can hardly believe it. I started the writing journey for this action/adventure last Thanksgiving and finally passed the finish line! Couldn't be happier with the outcome. One thing every writer must have is perseverance! I don't know about you but I think it's time to celebrate...
