Yep, it's official, I'm in the news. My BFF from Jr. High and High School many moons ago, writes for the Newport Beach Independent online. Her latest article is about self-publishing and she told my story. Thanks so much to Edie for her support in not only buying my book, but in helping me promote as well. I love having great friends. Here's the link so you can stop what you're doing and read it immediately! http://www.newportbeachindy.com/2012/07/13/authors-self-publish/

So... I have writer's block. I guess it was inevitable. I am a writer after all. It's just weird because once I started really working on this first book, the juices kept flowing. I wrote everyday. For hours at a time sometimes. Even if I had to stop to take my kids to the pool or bowling or all the other fun summer stuff we did last year, I was able to come home and pick up where I left off. This summer, not so much. I did write a few more pages the other day. So, I'm at about 101 pages. I have the first five chapters done, but after that, there are just sections that I want to insert somewhere. I'm still totally clueless as to where I even want to go with the story. Plus, I've been trying to promote this first book a little, so it hasn't been a priority. I'm going to try to just sit down today and see what (if anything) comes out. My three youngest kids are at grandma's farm for a couple of days, and Bubba just left for baseball practice with dad, so it's now or never. Well, I'm off.
