As a Multiple Sclerosis patient, it has become necessary for me to reinvent myself. I have ... and continue to ... refuse to lie down and die, or in this case, follow the normally prescribed drugs and treatments that do nothing to defeat my disease. I am not only surviving by pursuing alternatives, I am thriving. I do the things specialists told me I would never be able to do. I walk and hope to one day even run regularly. I retain my cognitive and creative abilities for the pleasure of my readers. Although you may never see me on my daily walk, you are welcome to read my novel(s) and in doing so, come to ask yourself, "How can the 'out of the box' protocol she has followed, help my loved one with an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis?"


WIP Update

My current project is succumbing to major revamping. The reason? Most readers don't associate with double climaxes even if they think they do. It is a programmed response from years of reading. Solution? Start smack dab in the middle of the first climax. (Okay, I already knew this but momentarily--as in for three months, got mentally stuck on 'what happens when a stranger comes to town.') Yes sir-reee that was and still is a fun scene.
(Me with my mind swirling) Wonder if I should share that scene with ya'all????) It would certainly give those of you who follow my work something to chew on for a few days…weeks…months…
Two edged sword…love it and can't wait and love it but wanting to kill me for not sharing more or getting the book to you sooner.
Humm…Do we understand that it takes longer to build a story that the reader can't put down than it takes to actually read the book?
Then there is finding the perfect publisher, fitting it into their publishing calendar. We could be a good year out with this one…maybe release a prequel on smashwords???
Your thoughts? Opinions? Or did I lose you guys when you didn't get all of The Talisman? You can click on the title here or the tab at the top of the page and read if you're interested.
Come back and help me figure out a good title for this one. Do I need tempt the winner with a free copy when it is released and seeing your name in print?
