Finding My Way Back

Everyone struggles in life. Sometimes it takes us down a dark path, but we must always keep trudging along to find the way out.

Lately, I have been feeling down. I lie. It has actually been over a year now. I have kept my distance from friends, my house is becoming a disaster, and I have to remind myself daily how great I have it even though life isn’t what I dreamed it would be.

I usually keep my true self away from my blog posts, but not anymore. For the past year, I haven’t blogged much nor have I written as much as I would like. This past weekend I decided that enough is enough. I have been walking in mud for months trying to find my way out to happiness, but it is time to find that vine and pull, yank, swing myself immediately to the right path.

Book rejections, my mother’s Alzheimer’s, and my struggle with fertility have been like these tremendous weights on my shoulders all consuming my thoughts. At some point, we have to just break free and take charge. So this is me taking charge.

I am revamping my blog. My next Children’s book has been written; I just need to edit, edit, rewrite, and edit again. The three books I have written and published are all FREE for the next couple days! Summer is great for reading! Just click on FREE!

As for my mother’s Alzheimer’s and my infertility? I just need to admit to myself that it is what it is. I have guilt that I cannot provide my son siblings and I have guilt that I cannot help my mother in all the ways she needs due to time and financial reasons. I also have embarrassment about the infertility and have not spoken much about it. I am done not speaking. It is time to yell about something that people should feel like they can share. The time is now. I just need to do the best I can, appreciate all that I do have, visit my mom as much as I can, and just live.

If you are going through struggles as well, please remember you are not alone. There is a light at the end of that long dark road. I promise. You just need to keep walking or running. But don’t just sit in that darkness and hope you will find the way out. You must make yourself get up and get out. If you don’t have the energy, please tell someone. Tell a friend. Tell a family member. Call a counselor. You are not alone and we can all get through this. ❤️

Real or not…

I prefer to hold a book in my hands.  A real book. Maybe that is because I am 40 years old and grew up without the choice of a “real” book or an electronic version. I grew up in a rural county  without a computer in the house and where we could not have cable television even if we had wanted it. I didn’t have Nintendo or any of the “cool” videogame systems. I did have the Atari and that was plenty for me.

What is my point? Well..my point is that I prefer a hard copy of a book, but if you like the electronic version…

then run to amazon right now. The ebook version of Stories After Dark is FREE TODAY!!!

STORIES AFTER DARK

This book is one of my favorites. I LOVE short stories and flash fiction; I love an open ending where you are left wondering and stewing in your own mind; I love dark and creepy stories. So if you love these things too then this is the book for you. It is a quick, but dark read. I truly hope you enjoy it!

A Good Reading Day

Today seems like the perfect reading day. I love a day where it is a little chilly out. Then I curl up on the couch and read a book (even if it is just during my son’s naptime).

So if you have just an hour like sometimes I do, go read one of my books. One is a short and sweet teacher book straight from the mouths of middle school students. The other is a short stories book. The stories range from creepy, strange, young adult to supernatural. Enjoy!!

BOTH are FREE today..but that is only for TODAY! So GO!
