An Update On New Hope City #2

26 Oct

Hey Everyone,

I know I’ve been very quiet lately–life, just life.  So, I am still working on the novel, it will happen but I don’t have a date. Right now I’m facing somethings in my life that I must handle. It is possible that I will need another surgery, so yeah that sucks really hard and this whole health issue is putting a real dent in my timeline. But don’t worry, it’s not anything life threatening (at least I don’t think so), more annoying than anything else. So please work with me as I go through these issues at this point in my life. I am looking forward to releasing the next novel but it will take longer than expected. Thank you all for your patience and support. I appreciate you all.

Emerging From The Chaos

1 Feb

I apologize for being one day late with my update. My life has been chaotic. First there was my surgery, then there was the 71% rent increase (that’s not a typo) that turned my life upside down and forced me to move. For those of you who don’t know, I live in Seattle, been here for 4 years and life is getting EXPENSIVE. Property values have shot through the roof and it’s hard for a lowly paid writer like me to live. The good news is that I found a home at the last minute that’s within my budget.  But going through all of this chaos has delayed everything on the writing side of things. However, I do have a release date for the sequel to New Hope City. I will release the second book by Fall 2015. It may come earlier, but I don’t want to make promises I can’t keep. I KNOW I can get this book released by the Fall, so that’s the date I’m going with. Thank you all for your support and patience!

I’m Back and Better Than Ever

28 Dec

Hello Readers! So sorry it’s taken so long to update this blog. But I’ve got good news, the mass was removed from my stomach, and it was benign. The mass they found was over 15 pounds, so I’m about 25 pounds lighter because of the surgery. :-p I’m almost 100% back to my healthy self and I’m feeling really good.  Anyway, it probably goes without saying that I’m definitely behind schedule on my book releases. However, by the end of January 2015 I will have firm release dates for New Hope City’s sequel and the new installments for After The Darkness. Thanks for your patience.

Life Changes and An Update

31 Oct

I just wanted to let my readers know that I have NOT dropped off the face of the planet. The past month has been INSANE. To make a long story short I have surgery next week and  I’ll be down for at least a month. The short of it is that I have a very large mass in my abdomen which must be removed so I need to go in for surgery. This thing came out of the blue and really scared me, so I’ve been focused on myself for the past month, just trying to stay healthy and calm. But don’t worry, my doctor expects me to fully recover. So I plan to be back soon with more stories, books and blog posts. Wish me luck.

Please Don’t Waste Your Life

26 Jul

I found this cool image on the internet and I wanted to share it.

don't waste life

This is probably one of the most powerful images I’ve found on the internet. So many people, myself included, waste time and energy on the things that aren’t important. Let’s take this woman’s advice and invest the life we have into living to the fullest, whatever that means for us.

Happy Thanksgiving! (Yeah, I know it’s kinda late)

29 Nov

Happy Thanksgiving!

I feel like it’s been a long time since I updated my blog, but I wanted wish everyone a Happy (belated) Thanksgiving. It has been two years since I started publishing my fiction and I’ll say one thing, I’ve got a lot to be thankful for.

The Gift of Life

I’ve just had another birthday and I’m extremely thankful for the gift of life. In the past few years I’ve lost my mom, my grandfather, and few other friends of friends who definitely left this place well before their time.  Every loss reminds me of just how fleeting life is and that tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. The funny thing about it is that as time passes and I mature, I’m finding myself less stressed, less anxious, and more content with life. I’m learning to enjoy the journey just as much as reaching my destination.

The Gift of Friends and Family

Love is a verb, and there’s nothing like feeling loved and loving towards others. I’m thankful for all those people surrounding me who care about me, pick  me up when I’m down, and remind me that I’m special to them. When it comes to loved ones, I consider myself amongst the lucky few who have people in their life willing to stick with them even in the most difficult times.

The Gift of Writing

You know the old cliché that we’re all given talents and it’s up to us to use them effectively? Well, that’s how I view writing. I consider myself blessed to have the passion and talent for writing and the good foresight to cultivate my skills.

The Gift of Readers

This indie publishing journey has been made amazing, not just by the act of independent publishing, but by all the readers who have bought my stories. I’m eternally grateful to you all. Thank you!
