Well, it has sure been a bit since I posted last. I blame Summer, for we have been living in the light these past few months. It has been a pleasant time spent in the sun having fun, but, also a tumultuous time. So much going on and projects that are being planned out. Changes that are going to be happening as well. I am one of those people who fear change. I don't know exactly why that is, but fear of the unknown is part of it. I have been working more to try and change that as I try to evolve into the person I want to be. It has been a road of introspection and it has also been long, lol. Is it working? I cant say right now, all I do know is I am putting in the effort to spot things that need changing and I am trying to enjoy it. Who knew I would be starting this journey this late in the game, lol.  

As for the projects, I have not decided which will come first as that will depend on my place in the line, but good things are up none the less. I am happy to announce that the coffee table is in the planning stages finally! That is exciting as I have been thinking and gathering photos for it for a long time now. My website will be getting a little revamp soon too. I also realized that I have been lagging on my legging postings. (see what I did there, lol) Sorry about that. After this coming week, I will be around more and be able to post more. We are currently launching our Halloween leggings. They are super cute! As follows and the link is right over there ------->

Leggings...We've got them!

So, I am trying something new. I don't usually do ad posts like this, but I just became an affiliate with these guys after owning several pairs and really believing in their product. Have you heard of LaLa Leggings? If not, you should get to know them. I am what you might call a legging aficionado. They are the perfect "go to" when you need something comfy, are working out or just want to go casual chic. LaLa leggings can meet all those needs with their buttery soft feel and perfect fit! The range of motion you get with them is pretty fantastic too and they come in all sizes (3-32),  so you will be sure to find your perfect fit. I own quite a few pairs myself, just ask Buzz, lol! Give them a try! You wont regret it! 

I can't wait to hear what you think of them! Questions or comments...message me.

Writing Prompts

Well hello there! I hope thins finds you all doing well? I, myself, am trying to settle into spring here in upstate. That is, if  Mother Nature will let me. The weather here has been so odd. We did not get any real snow until February of this year and now we are expecting another snow storm tomorrow! Yes, you read that right. This after spitting snow at us all this week. Easter Sunday was nice, but that's really about the only spring day we have had here. Makes a girl think about moving to a warmer climate. Will we ever get the warm weather? Who knows, but I hope that wherever you are, the weather is fine. Cheers to surviving spring 2018!

On another note, I am taking up something new. Writing prompts. I have done a few of these here and there. I belong to a group that asks for 6 word prompts and I do participate occasionally. Today was my first real try at a paragraph prompt. I went a little longer than a paragraph just to tie it up and I am pretty pleased with it. Maybe there is something to prompting after all. Feeling pretty creative today because of it. I am really looking forward to how this progresses. What new things are you trying this year?

For those of you that have been waiting for the new paperback version of The Find of Her Life, you will be happy to hear that I received word last night that a reformat is in the works. I will keep you posted on its progress as soon as I can.

Wishing you all a wonderful Thursday! Stay warm or cool out there....whichever it may be :)

Paerback is Back!

Hello there! I hope this finds you doing well today and excited that spring is just around the corner. I know I am! Not that this winter was a bad one, but I have to be honest...I have been dreaming of summer for weeks now. I miss my flip flops. However, we are almost there and that makes me happy. 

On another note, The Find of Her Life is back in paperback after having undergone a formatting overhaul. I have seen an advance of it and I think it looks great! Be sure to get a copy today. I am keeping my fingers crossed that my reviews come back over, once amazon adds it back to my author central page. I would certainly welcome new reviews though, even if you have already given one. Keep me posted on your thoughts on the new format too. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I hope you all have a wonderful day and if you are in the path of this nor'easter coming, be safe out there.
