Family and Joy

Monday, May 2nd, 2016 | Gratitude, Joy | No Comments

My parents came to visit last weekend, and as always, I had a ball visiting with them. We strolled through the Biltmore House and ate our weight in pizza and pasta, and just enjoyed each other’s company.

 

 

At the same time, I had lots of excuses to visit and frolic with my friends at Novels and Novelties, where we celebrated Independent Bookstore Day and revealed the store’s new logo which you can view Here

While I missed family and friends I did  not get to see this weekend, like Marianne Nubel and my brother Barry, I had a wonderful time with the family I did see. Friends and loved ones are one of the greatest joys I know.

Now I need to get back to my imaginary family, the characters that live in the stories I’m writing…

Success and Joy

Friday, April 29th, 2016 | Broadswords and Ballrooms 1.5, Joy | No Comments

I have to admit that I am very out of touch with the business end of writing. I do not spend a lot of time worrying about how my books are doing because I work so many hours at my day job. The time I have away from the bank is sacred, and money in relation to my books is the last thing I want to think about. I’ll get the early sales numbers from HOW TO SEDUCE A SCOT soon. While this will tell me how it sold in the first month it was out, those numbers will not be a complete picture of my new book’s success.

To me, the book, both books, are a success already. Because they brought me so much joy, first in the writing of them, and then in the sharing of them with all of you. I hope Broadswords and Ballrooms appeals to lots of readers and does well…all authors pray for that. But even if they don’t, I love them still. That love and the joy it brings me are pay the same way a royalty check is.

I suppose the ideal situation is when joy and money come together, hand in hand, like beautiful tow-headed twins.

But whether those twins show up on my doorstep like the blessing they are, I have to admit, my writing already brings me joy in abundance.
