after a while

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something here, been getting my ducks in a row. They look pretty straight now, so here goes–Work on ALL THESE LITTLE THINGS, is progressing. Not as quickly as I would have liked, but it is doing so. The premise here–oh my, even bad guys are human. Now think of how frail we are all, how susceptible we are to…everything. This story has been fun in a twisted sort of way. I do hope my readers like this book, finishing it up now and getting ready to send it to my editor. So I’m looking at  June /July for the release. Heck! With the coronavirus,  I don’t even now if stores will be open or if we’ll even have markets, but that doesn’t stop the writer whose head is constantly building scenarios. Stay well out there my dears. God bless and to quote Charlie Chaplin, “smile…you’ll see the sun come shining through if you just smile.

QUOTE: “For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

WRITING TIP: Do you smile when you are writing something funny? You should.

    Just finished reading “Sharks Breath”. It was a good read. It went too fast because I didn’t want to put it down. It seems the ending could possibly lead to another in this series. I hope it does, I feel like I know these people. Thanks Carol, be well.

      Phyllis, crazy, crazy summer. ALL THESE LITTLE THINGS took longer than I hoped. But now is back from the editor, submitted and will be available in a couple weeks–for sure. You can go to Amazon and order if you like, but hope you will get one from me. Thanks for reading–hope this latest in the series does not disappoint. Thank you so much, Phyllis for reading. I value my readers.
