Just thinking…

Three Year Anniversary and Giveaway!

Wow! It has been three years since I published my first book! I can’t believe how fast the time has gone, but what an AWESOME three years!

When thinking about this milestone in my life, I couldn’t help but think about a quote I once saw that said “Stop waiting for things to happen. Go out and make them happen.” Those words along with the encouragement from a couple of my author friends is what made me take that first step to self-publishing. And taking those first steps to self-publishing led to an opportunity to publish with a traditional publisher.

Like I said, it’s been an awesome three years! Eleven books (published) and three writing awards later, I can honestly say that my writing journey has exceeded my expectations! And of course I didn’t get to this point without help from my author friends, critique partners, loyal readers, as well as family and friends who support my work. Thank you all! I so appreciate you!

For those of you who are new to my blog, below are a few posts that have captured some of the highlights of my writing journey. Feel free to check them out.
