January Nuggets of Inspiration & Wisdom

Hello survivors <3

I’m sorry I haven’t posted for a wee bit, truly I am. There’s been a big shakeup here in Piperland. Almost out of nowhere I decided to finish my book somewhere around the second week of January. My life has been a series of days that run together involving my day job and locking myself in my office to write.

My family missed me too, but I think they enjoyed the Cuban music escaping from under my office door 😉

I promise that come March I will get back to regular postings. What? You have to wait until March? I know, I know, I’ll post sporadically now, but I’m committing to regular postings in March. I need some time to get things back in order, planned, created, you know…

What’s new at Surviving Life’s Curveballs

My prison book has been written. Lots of people (well, a few that know me anyways) want to know when they can read it. It’s going to be a while, but the best news is that my Survivors are going to get first rights to be beta readers.

What’s that mean? Basically, after I get a few rounds of edits done (April maybe?) I’ll be sharing the book with you. BUT only if you promise to give me your HONEST feedback. Don’t tell me it’s great if it’s not. I need to know what works and what doesn’t.

My ego will survive and the book will only become better with constructive criticism. Besides, I’m sure my agent (whenever I find one crazy enough to take me on) will have lots of feedback, so save me some heartache. I’d rather hear it from my friends than a stranger.
