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?"
The first thing is that I have a Dragon and I have now trained it--- kind of, sort of. Well you'll see what I mean.
The next thing is that I have received this morning a rejection letter for Halfback Hero from Shadow Mountain. That's okay though because I am waiting fingers crossed for now but another publisher. And hopefully they'll come to agree with me that Halfback Hero is worth publishing.
On another score, I have just received back from my number one beta reader the first book of my Talisman Series, I will now look into that folder and see what I need to change.
On the other hand, the second book in that series is going well I'm 26,000 words in and know where I'm going from here.
So that's what is happening with this author at the first of this year. Wishing you all a Happy New Year.
