I hope 2018’s goals and dreams are still successfully in progress.
January 2018 is almost over and I feel great about the second novel’s direction. One of my main characters is a nerdy, hopeless romantic. This researcher/scientist is an Al Green lover and her theme song is “I’m Still in Love with You”. She is a millennial (for now). When she laughs, she sort of cackles like a witch. Nerve wrecking is how I describe this exploratory stage of the writing process but I am having fun.
While on this journey to become a known “name” author, there is still opportunity to be an “incognito” observer of life. With no celebrity, I can listen and experience people and their nuances unnoticed. It is interesting to enjoy the various rhythms of speech and observe the diverse body languages. Sounds like I’m a stalker but I’m not. I’m just a student of people trying to understand what makes each individual unique.
One other piece of good news to share is a book review from the UK. This past week, Sue Hampson, a UK book blogger shared her thoughts on Mercy’s First Semester. Her review was shared by 41 bloggers! 940 people viewed her review on her FB page!
Stay tuned for upcoming events this Spring.
