It’s snowing here in my little corner of Ontario! Our first of the season. We just might have a white holiday!
It has been some time since I posted a blog. November and December have been very busy with many ups and downs. I was distracted by so many other things in life, I simply haven’t taken the time to focus on selling my novel. But tis the season to buy and to share! And I am planning a big share in the coming weeks.
In November I promised to share a few excerpts about the female captains from Signs of Love and Deliverance. I still plan on doing that so keep an eye out in the coming weeks for my featured characters.
In the coming weeks, I will be having free days for my novel. That’s right, FREE! Next Saturday and subsequent Saturday’s, Signs of Love and Deliverance will be FREE! On Amazon. Make sure you grab your copy!
If you miss getting your free copy, don’t forget that Signs of Love and Deliverance is also free with KU on Amazon.
Looking ahead! My plans for the winter are writing! I’m getting that sequel started that everyone has been asking about and I’m hoping to write a series of short stories or starting another series. How fast I can write all of this, remains to be seen. I’m not the fastest writer and I have life that tends to get in the way. But I will do my best.
In the hustle and bustle of life, we tend to get caught up in the excitement of things. We forget to listen to our instincts that say something isn’t quite right. Don’t ignore it! Listen to that little voice that is screaming warnings at you. Why do I say this? Well, I had something happen to me that seemed great at first but turned out to be a disaster. All the little signs were there, but I ignored them. I was caught up in the excitement and the distraction it provided. I needed something good to hang onto with all the sadness that was around me from the loss of my mother. Even someone as old as I am can still be duped. I believed and trusted people when I shouldn’t have. I didn’t pay close enough attention, and now, I’m paying dearly for it. So, listen to your gut. If there is even the slightest uncomfortable feeling about people, an offer, a situation, don’t ignore it. Despite feeling foolish and possibly losing something dear to me, there is a silver lining to my experience which is my learning a valuable lesson. Don’t ignore those instincts. As my Granny use to say: if it walks like a duck, swims like a duck, looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck.
With the holidays upon us, it is a very busy season. The next few weeks will be a bit hectic for our family with celebrations, ceremony and friends and family gatherings and visits. In the midst of all this chaos, let’s remember to be kind to one another. Be polite, give a smile, say a kind word. It’s not about the gifts we give and receive, it’s about the people that touch our lives every day, no matter how small.
Have a great day and if you need something to read, go pick up a copy of my book, Signs of Love and Deliverance. If you can’t afford it, wait until Saturday and get your copy for free!
Keep on reading!
