Hi Friends!

Wow!  It’s been awhile, a long while since I’ve posted a blog- almost  a year!  Life just happens some times and you just have to let some things go- ya know what I mean?!  Well, I have a very good reason to be back- I am finally moving ahead w/ my book!  YES!  The doors to getting it published have been opened!  Some time in the next 4 months or so, it will be out!  

So, some of you may be thinking by now, “What book”?  A great question!  I started writing “Blessings in Disguise” 2 years ago, well, a little more than that, but 2 years ago, seriously dedicating to it nearly every day.  Was done and had it finished in just a few short months.  In the meantime I was able to be a part of, “A Juicy Juicy Joyful Life”, a collaboration of 41 inspirational women authors, each with their own individual chapter, which was released and became a best seller on Amazon & Barnes & Noble in Sept. of 2010!  Then as I finished the final touches on my book, a little over a  year ago, I didn’t pursue getting it published whole heartedly.   I visited a few different options, some didn’t feel right to me and others  just didn’t work out.  But then, my mom, who has been one of my biggest supporters, gave me the 1 really little push I needed, just a few weeks ago.  She called me up, and said, “What can I do to help you get your book published?”  I told her I just don’t have the time to research publishing companies, gather the information who to contact and where to send my manuscript.  So one day shortly after that, she came over with her laptop, I gave her some companies I had thought about contacting, and she did the legwork.  I called one that was right here in my home town, a publishing assistance firm, not a publisher, they help individuals self publish their own work, and that is all there is!  The Jenkins Group, who incidentally, I’ve known the owners wife for many years through a mom’s group I was part of several years ago, just didn’t know about their company, has been around for over 20 years assisting authors in getting published!

My first thought was, “Why didn’t I do this a year ago?”- But, as you read my book when it comes out, you’ll understand my next immediate thought, “Because everything happens for a reason and when it’s suppose to.”  Although, I really don’t see the purpose of it waiting over a whole year longer than what I wanted, I know it’s going to touch thousands of people and help them get through some rough times they may be facing, or still struggling with for many months or years.

So, the beginning of the real work begins- I have final edits to make, and am moving forward!  Would love to have you join me on this journey!  Please keep watch, and I’ll be better at keeping you posted!  I am grateful to every one of my readers!

You can-

Make today the best day ever!
