Good morning everyone. To those I missed twelve days ago, “Happy New Year!!” It is a very arctic cold morning here in Dalton, Georgia. The weather is reading that it is twenty- eight degrees but feels like sixteen outside. Brrr! I have been weatherizing every time I have to take the dogs out. Everyone in the house has just gotten up and we are enjoying some freshly brewed coffee together.

It has been a crazy week with my new book being finished up and published. You can find it here https://www.amazon.com/dp/1976845238 to purchase the paperback but if you go here http://brandidpayne.com/ and scroll down the page you will see a link to get the FREE ebook. It has been a long struggle to get this book published which by my writing schedule it should have been done a few months back. I am just so excited that it is finally done and up for the world to see.

I am still working on my next two books which I am hoping to have published by the end of the month. I just have stories flowing through my being and wanting to explode out to the world. I have been working on my schedule now that all my lists and goals have been edited and made easy to do. You will see my daily journal postings every day now updating you on whats going on here on my side of the world.

Well, it is time to get started and getting my second cup of coffee. Please share this post with all your friends and family so that they can get a chance to get the FREE ebook and enjoy some of my short stories which I will be posting another one today. I wish everyone an awesome Saturday and a “Happy Birthday” to everyone with a birthday today. Take care. 🙂

 

Happy New Year!!

I apologize for not writing sooner but I have been getting year-end things done and I just sent my next book to the editor which I should have back today. If everything goes well today I will be formatting it and then get a hold of the cover designer and then on to publishing.

Things have been really good so far with a few ups and downs, but we have been managing. My goal for the new year is to stop smoking and my husband has been very supportive of it. I was up to smoking two to three packs a day so we know that quitting cold turkey would not be an option because I woke up New Year’s day and didn’t have a cigarette until four o’clock in the afternoon but went through withdraws like nausea, headache, and fatigue.

My husband is working with me on it as a challenge. He has me smoking a cigarette every four hours for the next two days and then Thursday will be a cigarette every six hours and this is possible and workable for me, but he loves me enough to help and support me with it to make sure I meet my goal.

Other than that I have my goals and plans set with writing and I am currently working on two different books at the same time to break up the monotony and will is a nonfiction and the other fiction. The fiction will be shorter of the two so it will probably publish before the fiction which shouldn’t be too far behind it.

I am excited about the new year and I feel I will meet all my goals and plans I have set up. I hope everyone else had a great New Years. My husband and I sat at home, watched the ball drop on the television, got our first kiss of the new year, and then went to bed. Well, I am going to end this post here and get started on my day’s to-do list to get some things finished and caught up. I wish a “Happy Birthday” to anyone with a birthday today and a great day for everyone else. Take care.

“Happy Hump Day to everyone!” How are my friends and family doing today? I feel awesome today! I am alive and breathing. I woke up this morning with goals on my mind and a to-do list that I really haven’t started yet, lol. I had to run an errand to the doctor’s office and have been sitting here checking emails, updating files, and getting things ready for writing and editing.

My husband has been stuck in front of the television since he got up playing video games but that is what he does. It gives me my time to work on to-do lists and writing uninterrupted. I love him to death but sometimes his game playing gets on my nerves because he has tunnel vision and doesn’t want to do anything else.

We took our dogs to the vet around the corner for their booster and rabies shots which they weren’t too crazy about, but they lived. It hurt me to hear them scream in the next room while getting their shots. Then they came running back to me for security and comfort, lol. They are such big babies with big barks.

I am halfway through the last edit of “The Battle for Joshua” and then off to the editor. I am still writing my next book and love falling into the story as I write. It is a vampire series but not a romantic one that has been around. It is a story of love and tragedy, but in the end, it is of royalty and reign.

Anyway, I am having a great day and I hope that my evening is the same. For all of you with birthdays today, “Happy Birthday” to everyone else, be blessed with an awesome evening. Take care.

Good morning everyone. how are you today? I am doing pretty good this morning and had to reschedule my doctor’s appointment because my transportation got screwed up. So, that is just more time I can spend writing,

I will have finished editing “The Battle for Joshua” by the end of the week and ready to send to an editor. I am writing the fourth chapter of my next book which will also be a series. I have more time to write now since everything is back to normal here in the house and my husband and I are in the process of buying some property that we can build our house on. That is very exciting.

I hope everyone is enjoying their week so far? I will be looking for some readers for my book to give me some feedback on it before publishing it. It will be a freebie book. If interested in being a reader for me just send me an email at bpayne43@live.com.

Well, time to get to work. I will let everyone know when the book is ready for readers which should be this weekend, So, to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have a spectacular day and love those around you.

Good Morning everyone. How are we doing this morning?  I woke up feeling pretty good this morning and have been doing things around the house and I have made my to-do list for the day. Everyone is having coffee together and watching one of the nieces play the PS4. It has been a pretty good morning so far and I look forward to the rest of the day.

My writing is progressing nicely and I am still on schedule towards my goals for publishing. I spent a few hours last night editing the next chapter of “The Battle for Joshua” and it will be the freebie for my mailing list. I will be writing the fourth chapter to my next book today which is part of my goal because I have a plan to write a chapter every day.

As far as my long distance goal is concerned, I have enough books to write until December of next year. It will be a couple of books per month which will build my list of published books. I want to be a career writer which is my main goal.

My husband and I are looking into buying some property in another state which will be better for us in the long run. We are tired of renting and always having the threat of being evicted and having slumlords who don’t want to fix anything but want their rent money.

We are looking to have something we own and enough space for what we need to be comfortable. We will be homesteading while we build our dream house. It will be a fresh start for us and we have been needing this for a while. We are very excited about this and are making our plans to get started.

Well, I hope everyone is having an awesome Saturday morning and to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have a good and relaxing day and enjoy your family time this weekend. Take care.

Good morning all of my friends and family old and new. I do apologize for not posting yesterday but after doing the housework and then raking the yard, I guess I was so exhausted that I fell asleep about nine thirty last night. It is a few minutes before eight this morning and woke to frost on the ground and it is very cold.

I was up a few times last night and taking my dogs outside about four o’clock this morning in a pair of shorts because it was so warm in my room. It is thirty degrees outside right now and I don’t look forward to the next time they have to go out unless I can talk my husband into doing it, ;).

I am still a little fatigued this morning and trying to shake it off. I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Day even though I missed it yesterday. I had finally gotten my new short story, “Rachel’s Deadly Past” published on the site under the crime drama thriller page. Please feel free to read it and would like any comments and feedback.

Well, it is time to get the day started and I wish everyone a Happy Friday and enjoy the rest of your weekend. Take care.

Hello everyone that is not traveling a long distance today to be with family. Those of you that are traveling, you will be in my prayers for a safe travel and return. Well, today I would be prepping for Thanksgiving dinner but this will the second year in a row that I am not cooking due to no money to purchase any food for dinner.

Tomorrow, my husband, sister-in-law, and I will be spending a quiet day and evening at home with each other. Usually, I am the one cooking and I cook a very large meal, but with finances being the way they are, we cannot do it this year. We probably won’t be celebrating Christmas either because of funds being low. It is okay though, we don’t need money to celebrate holidays.

I began writing some more on my short story which is over three thousand words right now and I still have quite a bit more to write. I will be leaving shortly to go to therapy and he would like to see samples of my writing which makes me feel good. I love writing so much that I go through withdrawals when I am not able to write. My husband thinks I’m crazy but my writing is my escape like his video games are his escape.

Anyway, I will keep this short and sweet today but I will be posting again tomorrow. Everyone whose birthday is today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else be safe while traveling and have an awesome evening. Take Care.

Hello and good morning to all. Sorry for it being a few days for my post but I have been doing a massive house cleaning. By the time I was done I was exhausted and needed a nap. I got up and made dinner and have been sitting here working on my short story while eating butter flavored popcorn. I am doing okay so far mentally but still waiting for my medications to get into my system good and then I’ll be balanced out.

My writing is going along pretty good and I am excited and addicted. I can’t see myself doing anything else but writing. I have checked my writing through an app and it says that my readability is grade 6 or 7 so they are easy reads which is what I like because then most people can read my books. I don’t believe in using really big words and want them easy to read.

I woke up around nine o’clock this morning and the first thing I had to do other than using the restroom was taking my dogs out while trying to drink my first cup of coffee. It has been getting a little colder outside and feels like a winter morning with the temperatures being in the thirties all week overnight. So, since I don’t really like the cold due to my arthritis it gives me an excuse to stay in and work on my writing.

Since I started writing, I have become somewhat of a hermit because of my addiction to writing. I try to spend time with my husband and dogs as much as possible but he stays in his video games a lot so it gives me another excuse to sit at my desk and write. My day usually consists of working on the next short story, writing on the new book, and editing the finished book plus using social media to announce my progress and accomplishments.

I am pretty busy but still manage to keep the house cleaned and meals cooked. I manage the household money and make sure the bills get paid. I have plenty of books to write that will get me through the next year and look forward to the next adventure in writing. Well, I will stop here and wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else a glorious day. Take care.

Good Evening everyone. How is your weekend going so far? I am good today, my husband says that my new medication is working because for the past few nights I have not been fighting in my sleep or beating on him. I have been sleeping soundly and not able to hear anything. My husband gets to play his game in peace while I sleep or write.

That brings me to this morning. I got so caught up in my writing last night that my husband was waking me up from my sleep because I fell asleep at my desk. He made me go get to bed. He laid back down with me until I fell back to sleep and then he got up and made the coffee. I woke up at fifteen after seven and felt wide awake until a few hours later when I was nodding off again at my desk trying to get some more work done.

I started to write a short story last night and will be finishing it tonight. It will be placed on my website under crime drama thriller page. I love writing because I can express myself and it is a coping mechanism for stress and anxiety. My sister-in-law loves reading my stories along with some other people. I have so many stories in my head that need to come on paper and I plan to get every one of them into books for everyone to read.

How was everyone’s Friday night? Did anyone party a little too much, lol? It did not even feel like it was Friday night. I stayed home with my husband watching movies before getting on my computer to write.  He is waiting for me to get another book done so he can read it. Well, it time to get to work and I wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have an incredible Saturday. Take care.
