Thank you Lord - A Personal Note

The Lord has blessed me with my 1st grandson. For me, it is just another confirmation that the generational curse of poverty, addiction and child neglect has been lifted from my family. The male children in my famiy haven't been as successful as us girls. I believe that there's several reasons for it. Some within our control and some not so much.

When I looked into the eyes of my grandson for the first time, I was reminded of a decision made long ago to bring an amazing boy into the world. Oh yes, it was the right one...

I am sure that I am NOT the 1st to feel this way. I am grateful to experience it, and honored to be a grandma!

It Ain't Easy!

So..on a not-so-good day, I get really frustrated at how insensitive some people are about what we authors go through to showcase our books at the various events. There's a lot more going on than just setting up a table, and PUFF, we're ready to sell books.

When I plan an event, each and every aspect has to be well thought out. I want to WOW the people who visit my table. It really does take a village to do this thing right - hairdresser, manicurist, tent from home depot, marketing items from Vista-print, outfit from my favorite dress shop, etc., etc..

So the next time you have the opportunity to attend a book signing event, please take a moment and think about all of the not-so-obvious effort that has occurred. Writing the book was just the beginning. Please SHOW YOUR Support...

Time is Precious

One of the few things in this world that cannot be returned is time. Since beginning to seriously market my books, I’ve embraced the idea that my time is precious. As my grandmother would say, “I do not have time for no mess”. I consider it an insult when people take my time for granted.
Don’t show up late to an appointment without even acknowledging that you're late. Is your life that much more important than mine? Don't waste my time, pretending to be interested in collaborating with me when you know darn well that you don't have the skills, funds, or intent to really make something happen.
Don't you know that I have a day job! Every appointment is paid for with my vacation time or additional hours worked! Funny how even the basic work ethics are disregarded my so many people.

I’m just sayin.
