During this time when so many of us are secluding ourselves
away from each other in an effort to retain our health against this viral
onslaught. It’s easy to get depressed and feel that our self-inflicted withdrawal
from society has in some way injured us, we feel we are victims of this viral
pandemic. To those who feel this I want to say… take heart. This is only a
moment in time compared to our entire life, however, it may be one of the most
important times we live through. I encourage you to take photos of your
everyday activities and post them. Take time outside of drowning in social
media to cherish this family time; make scrapbooks, do puzzles, and relish in all
the things we once did before the techno-boom. Write, paint, and be creative. Read all those books you purchased on a whim. Play that instrument again that you put away for 20 years. Use this time
wisely. Look at this as an opportunity that will never come your way again. Use
For those who have an e-copy of my novel "The Secret King," please get the upgrade. The cover for the newly re-edited version is blue. That is a sure fire way of telling them apart. This new edit is a world of difference from the old one. If you bought it from Amazon then you should be able to get a free upgrade. It is available. Usually the upgrade automatically goes to your kindle or tablet, however, if the cover is grey then it didn't update. You might need to do it manually.
Hey to all my friends,
My table area at the Lubbock-Con 2020 was a huge success. I actually sold out of a couple of my titles, and signed lots of copies dedicated to my friends. What an amazing weekend. Most of all I loved talking to those of you who simply stopped by to say "hi" and encourage me. All of you are the best of the best! (Saw several of my past students and totally relished hearing about their lives since school.)
I will be at the Lubbock Arts Festival in April. So, keep one of these dates open (17,18, and 19th) and plan on visiting with me there. I also have some things planned for August and possibly for as early as June. I 'll keep you in the loop as to my upcoming agenda. Thanks to the Write Right Critique Group for letting me be a part of this fantastic event with them as I shared the table with Keith West, Sekji Ani, and Liam Shea. Great authors writing terrific books.
