So...I received a box of Opening Pandora's Box today, opened it, and am now afraid to look at a copy. After all the editing, the proofing, the repairing; all that time that James poured into the revisions over the summer; my procrastination to get it out there; what if after all that I find a glaring mistake right on the first page? I am not sure I can tolerate it.

So...instead, I look at it across the room and  am happy with the stark white cover that really epitomizes the theme of the story. I am glad that I at the last minute decided to minimize the decor of my original cover. Since this is  the story of a young person climbing out of the very pits of depression, I can think of no better design than this blankness to reflect the numbness that surrounded her.

So...the cover is good. In fact, the cover is genius.

My last reading of the manuscript brought me to tears. I really like the story. I am sorry to no longer have Abby in my every waking thoughts and she will always be my favorite original character, but I am happy I can put her to rest in a happy place now.

So...what do I do now?

Check out my YA trilogy at Amazon.com.
Abby, Raspberry Beret, and Opening  Pandora's Box are all available in hard copy as well as Kindle.

Wow and Viola ! I wrote a trilogy!!!!!!

MS Awareness Month: The Letter K

K is for keeping up with Jones's. 
Get rid of this philosophy RIGHT NOW. You are special. You are unique. You are a Warrior. You are a Super Star. MS does not define you. 

We have enough on our plates without worrying about without the rest of the coming and goings in our neighborhood, church, community, family. So what if Bubba got a new ski boat or Nibby Neighbor Nancy is planning - loudly - her spring cruise. I celebrate daily getting out of bed. No, I am not downplaying the excitement surrounding these happy moments in the lives of those folks we know. As MS Warriors, we sometimes need to remember that life hold more bonuses than money can buy.

This morning I am reminded that spring is on its way. Sure, I saw the news and I am well aware of the snow storm that promises to pelt our country in a few hours. I am ready. Milk in the fridge. Bread in the pantry. Flashlights battered up. But, behind that storm is spring and my favorite scent of all times: lilac. Don't ya just love t…

The N of MS.

N is for not allowing MS to win. This easy. Refer to A-M and O-Z.

As MS Warriors it is our job, our responsibility, and our mission to provide information, support, insight, and understanding to this ridiculous disease.

#WeAreStrongerThanMS

When I say we need to provide information, I am not just talking about clinical research and statistics. If you are living with MS or are close to someone with the MonSter, you have more information than can be found on the internet. YOU are the expert. YOU are the prime resource for what's what in this crazy land of MS. You experience(s) is invaluable.

Supporting the fight against MS wears many hats. Sure, you can make a monetary donation, but that is not always feasible in this tight-budget minded world. I am definitely preaching to the choir here. As a retired school teacher, I am facing quite a few unplanned expenses. No, money is not the only way, or necessarily the best way to offer assist…

This Writer's Euphoric Journey

It is November and that means National Novel Writing Month. I participate every year. As always, I am behind on my writing goal for the month: WRITE 50,000 WORDS  IN 30 DAYS. 

With only two days to go, I still need 10,000 to finish. 

So...I will see you here again on Wednesday or at the end of my journey of 50,000 words. Until then, breathe.
