I have friends who always ask me how it's going and if need be, send me weekly emails at my request helping to keep me on track.

With 3 new books on the table I am also working with a mentor on how to focus on writing in the moment. This is a little harder to explain, but instead of looking at what I think I need to accomplish that day, just starting and enjoying the writing process. Let it be what it is meant to be that day in the moment.

Let's face it - it's the stress and worry that hold us back. So finding ways to release and a work schedule that is enjoyable is a big plus.

Over time they have changed my views about myself, my talents and how I live my life. There is no such things a one way to live, there is no one right path to follow and all those crazy quirks people want you to tame are your unique talents.

The other huge plus is freedom. It comes with a cost. Managing your own time is not the easiest thing, but the rewards are tremendous.

Eternally Artemisia—some loves, like some women, are timeless by Melissa Muldoon

Review Waking Isabella HERE! Review The Secret Life of Sofonisba Anguissola HERE!

Synopsis -

For Maddie, an art therapist, who wrestles with the “peculiar feeling” she has lived previous lives and is being called to Italy by voices that have left imprints on her soul, this idea is intriguing.

Debbie "DJ" Darn it, I can't PM you with an "authors page.," so will just do here. Saw your comment on Esil's review and wanted to say she's fantastic. If you get a chance check out Debbie Annan, she's who Wes talked to while I was "away."

Hope you're having a great time at the fashion show! Will email soon, so much to share...
