It’s May 14th!!! After 2 years of writing and editing, and pausing to make peanut butter sandwiches and turning on Barney, then editing and editing and pausing to help with homework and make dinner, and editing…many times over, the big day has finally come! I feel like there should be a big drum roll and trumpets sounding at this point. I am excited to announce that INDIGO INCITE, my debut YA Fantasy Adventure, is officially released!!!
If you are new to this blog and are curious about the book, check out the “page” link at the top of this page that says “Indigo Incite”. That will take you to a blurb about the book as well as 3 excerpts from the story.
Now, where can you go to download this eBook? Visit:
that will take you to my direct author page on Smashwords.com where you can download the eBook onto any eReader, including iPad, Nook, and Kindle, or directly to your computer. Smashwords has submitted the book to several eReader companies; such as, Barnes & Noble and Apple, but it will be a couple of weeks before it shows up in their library. In the meantime, it’s just as simple to go directly to Smashwords.
After you have read the book, feel free to return to the Smashwords webpage to submit a review of INDIGO INCITE. I would really appreciate the feedback for future potential readers!
On this Mother’s Day, when I am on the verge of achieving a dream long in the making, I am so excited that Indigo Incite, my debut novel, is about to be published and shared for anyone who wishes to read it. It’s been a dream, long time coming, and for that I can thank my mother and my grandmother for helping to make my dream become a reality. My mother has always encouraged me to reach for my dreams, and because of that, it has never occurred to me that I couldn’t do anything that I set my mind to. My grandmother, with her inspirational wisdom, gave me the idea to write a story, many years ago, about Indigo Children. Thanks to these two wonderful women in my life, Indigo Incite has now become a reality.
From the time I could pick up a pencil and write, I knew that I had to be a writer. When I was in second grade, my mother used to bring me to work with her, on the weekends (back in the day when it was no big deal). She gave me a blank journal and colored pencils, and during that time while I sat at her work, I began to create and illustrate stories. My love for writing was born with that journal and has continued to grow and flourish.
It has been said that you know your true passion and meaning in life when you find something to do and suddenly, in that moment, you lose all sense of time. That is where I find myself in writing. When I write, there is no such thing as time (except when my kids remind me that I should probably cook dinner). I have found my true passion in life in writing. That is my hope and dream for my children. On this mother’s day and always, I dream that they follow their true inner calling. In doing so, they will find happiness. That’s all a mother could ever wish for, for her children.
Thank you for visiting my new blog! I only had the other blog for a week, but I wasn’t happy with it. I always say, if something doesn’t seem right, you have to follow your instincts. Don’t stick with something that doesn’t make you happy. That rule can be applied to just about any part of your life! This blog is much more user friendly, and I hope you like it too! Go ahead and click on the subscribe link, on the right, if you would like to get emailed updates of the blog. I have 2 excerpts from my upcoming Ebook, Indigo Incite, posted. If you haven’t read them yet, they are a good teaser until you get the chance to read the book in its entirety. Watch for a third excerpt to post before the release date on May 14th!
