I love my boys more than words can describe, but Christmas break can't get over soon enough! They go from fighting over toys to being best buds. Then the fighting starts over again. Oh and my personal favorite, "I have nothing to do." They have rooms full of toys and just got more for Christmas, but they are dying of boredom! I guess I shouldn't complain and cherish these moments, because they grow so fast! :)
So . . . I read my first bad review yesterday and I won't lie, I about cried. I also thought, I knew I should've just kept my writing to myself. Later that night I realized I was wrong. No matter what I do I'm not going to please everyone with my writing, no matter how much I would love that. I just need to remember that I wrote it in a way that I can be proud of. Do I have a lot of growing to do as an author? Yes of course I do. I think every author learns something new with every book they write. I can already tell a difference in my writing styles from Taming the Whirlwind to the second book I wrote, which hopefully will be released soon. All I ask is that if you hated Taming the Whirlwind that you remember this was the first book I ever wrote and to please not write off any of my books in the future. Please continue to leave reviews regardless if they are good, bad, or indifferent, because I will take in to account, to extent, for future writings. This last part is in NO way directed at the review I received, but just something I've noticed from reading other reviews. Yes I will admit, I looked to see if my favorite authors had bad reviews, especially on books I love, so this goes for all reviews. If you didn't like the book, that's your right, but please make your reviews in a tasteful manner. Authors are humans too and no matter how many bad reviews an author has been given, each one is going to hurt at least a little. Authors put a lot of effort into writing and it's a huge step to put something out there for the entire world to judge. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and 2016 brings nothing but good things to you and your family! :)
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!! I'm just glad I don't have to work today, so I can recoup! The winners will be announced soon and I'll get your prizes to you!!
Writing the book was a blast, publishing it was amazing, having it actually sell was humbling, and now that the tour is over, I'm terrified. I love the book or else I wouldn't have had it published and I'm hoping others love it too. Now the waiting game begins, and I couldn't be more terrified than I am right now about what the readers will say. I think every author writes a book hoping everyone will love it and it's hard to see where someone doesn't, but I'm just going to keep reminding myself that I can't please everyone and hopefully I'll get through this with all my hair! :) Love, like, or hate (please don't hate it!) please leave a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Thank you and Happy Holidays!!!!

I’d never planned on being a writer, never even crossed my mind. It started as a way to escape during a difficult time in my life and then I realized how much I loved it. I’d finished my first book and couldn’t wait to start the next one. Now I’m on book three and already have ideas for number four running through my head.
