January check in and audiobooks
How is it going? I wanted to check in and give you all an update as to where I am in my goals for the 90 days so far. So far, I have finished the sweet romance/family saga, first draft. This is going to be a fun series. I do not plan to release any of these books right away because I want to focus on getting my fantasy out in the world. Which by the way, I have gotten the edits back on said fantasy. Working through those. It is taking longer than anticipated because I took sick the
Writing, a business you say?
But, no, not business writing! Here I am again, writing on my blog for the third time this week. What is WRONG with me????

If you were a part of this event, thank you from the bottom of my heart for attending. It was the first of our efforts to bring together writers, aspiring and otherwise.
