Good evening everyone. How are you doing this beautiful evening? My night has been going okay so far. I went this morning to the diagnostics office and had the CT Scan of my stomach hernia which I call my alien baby and will be seeing my doctor on Wednesday to get the results and what the course of action will be. I am concerned as to what it is doing or how they plan to address it. It causes me to have constant nausea, I can’t lay on my stomach without pain, and whenever I eat something it hurts. I can only hope for the best.

I have spent the better part of today regrouping myself and getting my goals, deadlines, and schedules revamped for more efficiency. I am taking some of my short stories and compiling them into an e-book as a freebie. I am getting ready to send it to the editor this week and have been doing my first round of editing on it as well. I know some of you may not have gotten a chance to read them on their sites so I am putting the best ones together in a free e-book.

I am still working on my book “The Battle for Joshua” and should, fingers crossed, have the first draft done by the end of next week. I get so caught up in the story that chapters become more than ten pages each. I am rather enjoying writing it and look forward to sharing it with everyone. It will be a full-length novel and you should enjoy reading it as it keeps my attention while writing it. Look for it soon, but I will keep you updated.

Well, it is time for me to finish some things up before bed and I wish whoever has a birthday today, a “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, an awesome and blessed evening.

Good morning to all my friends and family old and new. I love to see new followers every day and I appreciate everyone equally and feel like you are all part of my family. You are those who will listen to my ramblings when no one physically here with me understands. I can go into crisis mode and once I begin talking to you all here and telling you of my issues I start to feel better and it feels like you really are listening.

Anyway, today I am going back in writing mode and to hell with everything else around me. I am tired of being the maid, secretary, and dog groomer. It is time for me to do me now. Everything going on here makes me feel like the servant and slave and it stops here and now. People who are able to need to do things for themselves and let me do what I need to do for me. If something happens to me what will they do without me?

I am writing chapter seven of my second book today with a goal to have chapter seven, eight, and part of nine done today. I found out the other night that with my headphones playing music in my ears I get more writing done, so I have them on now and will be getting things done today. I look forward to finishing the manuscript and begin the editing phase. As part of my editing, I will record the reading of my manuscript so that I can hear it and make any corrections as I follow along.

I am going to get some goals done today and who knows that it could be possible to finish my manuscript today but I know that once I fall into the story I get lost and chapters become long ones. Writing is my escape mechanism from everyday drama which is what I try to avoid as much as possible. So, I want to wish everyone who’s birthday is today a very “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else an awesome and blessed day.

Hello, Everyone! How are you today? My night went to crap last night when I watched our one-year-old rabbit take her last few breaths. We have no clue what happened but she started losing weight about a week ago. It was only yesterday that she refused to eat anything. We buried her at approximately two-thirty this morning. My husband and I could not go to sleep until it was after daylight. It’s hard because she was a family member not just a pet. I beat myself up because had we not moved into this house she would still be alive.

Other than that, I just got up to my roommate bitching about the power bill because we have used fifty dollars worth of power in a week. She thinks that with three people living in this house the power should be under a hundred dollars a month, I don’t think so. So, she is ranting and raving about flipping the main breaker and turning off the power to the whole house. I almost told her that if she would stop doing laundry just to leave it around for her animals to spray and urinate on she would not have to do twenty loads of laundry every week.

I am just so over living here with her and will keep myself in our room unless I need to use the restroom or get something to drink. She gets high on meth every so often but says she doesn’t. I watch her and I can tell when she is high but my husband doesn’t see everything and I have tried telling him. Well, we had company the other night while my roommate was high and even our company caught on and when my husband asked our roommate if she was high, she quickly said “yes”.

I am waiting on my last lump sum payment from social security to get us out of here. This is just getting to be too much and I don’t need the extra added stress. She also thinks that I am her maid and should be cleaning out her cat boxes and pee pads all over the house. I have told her that these are not my animals and I should not have to clean up after them. She really got my goat the other day when I cleaned the kitchen completely just for her to have all of her cats on top of the counter to feed them where she spills cat and dog food everywhere and doesn’t wipe it up.

I’m sorry to be ranting but I am so over this crap with her I could scream. I almost ready to not pay any bills this coming month just to get us out of here. I don’t know what else to do. Well, let me get back to working on my book and I will talk again soon. I wish everyone a great and awesome day.

Be Blessed!

Hello, Everyone. I do apologize for my absence but I have found myself stuck inside the storyline of the book that I am currently writing. When I sit down to begin writing I fall into the story like I am there in it and disappear from reality. Plus, I have found myself adding more to each chapter not to fluff it up but more of the story itself. Currently, the book is a little over twenty-five thousand words and I still have approximately six more chapters to go, so this book will be a full-length novel and can’t wait to release it. I hope everyone who gets it will enjoy it as much as I have writing it. Here is a rough draft teaser of chapter one:

     It was dark and all you could feel was heat and hearing the screaming of lost souls. Every tunnel seems to go on forever with rooms every one-hundred feet. Within these rooms, there were souls being tormented by demons. Every now and then you would see a demon fleeting past you and even some that seemed to be whispering in your ear in the dark. This was a dismal place to be and with a quick thought a torture chamber.
Some of the rooms you could see flames as the floor while souls hung by their hands over it. They’re screaming and pleading for their lives as each demon has a turn at whipping them or dropping them enough to scorch their feet. This was one place no one should be subject to. You can see the souls of the elderly crying as they are shown how their family is being tormented amongst the living.
In one of the cave-like rooms sits a small humped over gargoyle- like creature with long, white hair, long claws, and solid black eyes. He looks to be an older demon with facial features of wrinkles and sagging skin. His name is Gusion the discerner of past, present, and future. He sits inside an inverted hexagram on the floor while what looks like meditating. He sits for hours discerning the future of souls and the past of souls arriving in Hades.
One could say he is a receiving center for prisoners who arrive and sorts through them to see which prison or fate they should have or be sent to. He makes marks on the floor as he sees, like taking notes. Gusion is one of the demons who report to the king of Hades, Asmodeus, on his findings.
Asmodeus is an arch demon and the evilest demon in Hades. He is the king under Lucifer which makes the final decisions of all legions. Almost as a general of armies. He is a large dark-orange skinned beast with red eyes under large black eyebrows. He has large fanged teeth and two spiraled horns that stand straight up from his head.
One day, Gusion had a vision of the future. It is so disturbing to him that he becomes restless and agitated. After sitting for a few hours to make sure what he is seeing is true, he gets up and hurries to find Asmodeus. He searches every hole and room looking for the arch demon. He finally finds him in one of the thousand rooms torturing a soul to the extreme. Asmodeus finds pleasure and relaxation while he is tormenting.
Gusion hates to disturb him but the information he must give is detrimental to the future of Hades. He stands there for a few minutes watching Asmodeus trying to figure out how to tell him and what kind of reaction he will get off the news. He finally sees that Asmodeus is done with the lost soul and informs him he needs a word with the king.
Asmodeus walks out of the room with Gusion on his heels blabbing away of his news. He hears nothing as he walks to his throne room and informs Gusion that he does not listen to matters until he is relaxing on his throne. Gusion agrees and shuts up while following his king. They walk down many tunnels of heat and darkness until coming to the throne room of fire.
Once seated on his throne, he calls for his beloved hounds of Hell for some attention. Two very large black dogs with flaming red eyes enter the room and sit at the feet of their master. Asmodeus reaches down and begins petting them before telling Gusion to speak of his concern.
Gusion begins trembling as he hesitantly starts talking. He tells Asmodeus of his discerning of the future of Hades. A human child will be born that will have the power to destroy the entrance to Hades and the Abyss forever. It has been shown to him the child and as he reaches sixteen earth years old he will defeat us in battle and close the entrance.
With this information, Asmodeus becomes enraged and steps off his throne pacing back and forth. He begins ranting and throwing up of his hands which make his pets tremble and quietly leave the room. He turns to Gusion yelling at him as to why he didn’t say something earlier. Gusion stepping out on a limb informs Asmodeus that he was trying to tell him as they walked through the tunnels.
Thinking that Gusion is becoming insubordinate, he wipes his hand against Gusion sending him across the room. Gusion gets up and tries pleading with Asmodeus for mercy. Asmodeus sits back on his throne made of brimstone and begins thinking to himself before asking Gusion where this child will be located.
Gusion humbly informs him that his sight does not show locations, only of events that have happened, are happening, and ones that will happen. No location has been shown and the only thing he knows it that the child will be born to a young couple with no Christian beliefs. Asmodeus agrees that this information will make destroying this child easier.
It is told that plans must be made to kill the child’s mother before he is born. Locating the family will be difficult but they must be swift before Gabriel and the other angels find out. Asmodeus sends for Vassago to come to him and will give him the job of locating the child’s parents.
Vassago is demon prince who discovers things lost or hidden. He will make finding the child quicker. He is a medium-sized gargoyle figure with yellow eyes and the commander of twenty-six legions. He has been under Asmodeus for centuries and always completes his task.
Vassago enters the throne room bowing before his king. He asks why his King has sent for him? He was training his legions for combat, stealth, and deception when called for. Asmodeus informs him that he has a task for him of the greatest importance. He tells Vassago of Gusion’s vision which is very disturbing to all involved.
Asmodeus sends Vassago to search out the young couple and to report his findings back to him. Vassago agrees and is sent off to search out the parents on earth. He begins his search from one end of the earth and makes his way across the planet searching for any young couple that is pregnant with the destined child.
Meanwhile, Eremiel, who is the great angel that rules over the entrance to Hades and the Abyss, overhears of the plans to search out a child with a great destiny ahead of him. He then sends word to Gabriel, who is a higher angel in the heavens. Gabriel wears a white robe, has curly long blond hair, blue eyes with a long blond beard. He is one of the elders that carries a staff of blessing.
Gabriel takes this information and does some research of his own to find out more about this child. He seeks out knowledge from the council as to who this child is or will be. The council debates and looks to the foreseers to explain why this child is important. After much time, they reconvene to inform Gabriel of the destiny of this certain child. That he will be a warrior among angels and the destroyer of evil.
Gabriel listens to the council as they give much detail about the child in question and that he needs to be watched over and protected. He is also told that this child has not yet been born and that he is the child of a young couple that does not believe in the Christian faith.
Now having found out why Asmodeus wants to kill this child, Gabriel needs to make some tough decisions concerning the welfare of this child. Being that he will be born to atheistic parents, it will be hard to confront them concerning the safety and welfare of their child. If they do not believe in angels or demons, then it will be hard to appear to them and inform them of how important their child will be.
Gabriel then calls for Diniel who is a younger but experienced angel on the safety and protection of infants. Diniel comes before Gabriel and listens as he translates the destiny and importance of how this child needs to be protected. Diniel works well with children since they pretty much can see angels and demons because of their purity in spirit. He has a young angelic face, short brown hair, brown eyes, and wears a lavender colored robe.
Diniel and Gabriel set down a plan of action to protect the family from any undue harm. The family needs to be protected from demon attacks which could jeopardize the child’s life. Diniel then sets out to search for the parents to put a hedge of protection around them. He is to guard them night and day until the birth of the child.
Diniel is aware that Asmodeus has sent Vassago out to find the child as well and that he should be prepared in case of unintentional contact with the demon. Vassago is much stronger than Diniel and he does not want any confrontation with him unless it is necessary. His mission is to find the parents and protect them.
Now Diniel and Vassago both are out on the earth searching out a young couple who will have a child of importance. Each is searching high and low, from couple to couple looking for the parents of the special child. The fate of Hades and the Abyss rest in the survival or death of this child.

Remember, this is just a first rough draft and I will be adding some more to it and making it the best it can be. I hope it grips your curiosity to read more? I will be doing the first round of editing this week and revising to specifications. Well, I need to get going before it gets too late. I wish everyone a great night and a blessed day tomorrow.

“Good night!”

Hello, everyone. It has been the craziest week for us. First, we live with someone who has multiple personalities and we never know which one we are dealing with half the time. She has been told several times and even before we moved in here that I am a writer who has deadlines and schedules, does that matter, no. Every time I turn around it is something with her. She can be so hardheaded that it makes me ill.

Yesterday, for example, she wanted to go to the store and get some things on credit, but when she got home and found that her available credit remaining on her prepaid power was only $6.oo, she began flipping out and tried to take off in her car knowing she can’t see. I pawned my laptop to be able to put some money on the power bill but she would not let me use the car, so I had to walk approximately three miles to the power company knowing I am not supposed to be walking that far without hurting really bad.

I made it there, but my sugar had dropped way too low and I called my husband to let him know I would be stopping for a little bit until my sugar can regulate. It isn’t fair that he gets pulled in between her and I and I am always apologizing to him for us being here in the first place. I regret moving here sincerely but I have informed his case worker we want a housing voucher that would get us into our own place. I have realized that she is a threat to my mental health and it needs to be corrected fast.

I apologize that I am throwing up my issues all over the place but sometimes you readers are my only outlet for my stress and anxiety. Tomorrow I plan to stick to my new schedule come hell or high water and will be soon finishing my second book since I have had a few days worth of setbacks. Thank you to everyone who listens when I rant and rave but everything will get better. I have to think positively. 🙂

I wish everyone a great day and be blessed in your endeavors.

Good morning everyone! It is a cool Thursday morning here in Dalton, Georgia and an awesome day for writing. I want to thank everyone who has been following me and those who have just begun following me on Twitter. I really appreciate your support and to those on Facebook, you are very appreciated as well. I love writing my stories and have just finished another chapter in my second book which is fictional and I have a deadline of May 31st to have the first draft completed and ready for editing.

On Monday, I was supposed to have a procedure done on my neck for pain management but due to my sugar being in the 300’s they recommended that I reschedule for June 12th. I have been working on trying to control my diabetes and I have made some progress but continue to be positive.

I am almost back on my regular schedule now for writing and have found that I drift off into my stories and live them as I write. I have my calendar set up with deadlines and goals to have all my book outlines turned into written books and it is pretty easy to follow. Since its publishing back in April, I have sold twelve books and look forward to there being more in the coming months.

As far as my health and mental status are concerned, my writing is my outlet to disappear from all the stress and drama that surrounds me. It makes me feel better to write and be inside of my stories like I am right there in the action. I am maintaining six other blog sites for short stories each with their own theme or genre, so it seems I am always writing which is a good thing. It keeps me out of my husband’s hair as he puts it and he knows that it helps me with my stress and anxiety, so he supports me with my writing and has even helped me with some plots and outlines.

Well, I must get back to work and just wanted to give you an update on how I am doing thus far. Again, thank you for all your support and to those who purchase a copy of my book, if you could be so kind as to leave a review on the site where you found it I would really appreciate it. I wish everyone an awesome day and a blessed one.

Good morning everyone. I hope everyone is having a wonderful morning. It has been raining here all night which made for some good sleeping. I feel refreshed this morning and ready to get some writing done. I was up until three o’clock yesterday morning working out my goal and deadline calendar for my books and each goal every day is reachable. I have enough books to write until April of next year which should be approximately forty-three books published.

I have been awake for about thirty minutes now and my husband has made me a cup of coffee which tastes very good this morning. It is still a bit overcast outside but it feels fantastic. I look forward to completing my next book by the end of this month and having it ready for editing. It will be a freebie to all my subscribers and a sample of my fictional writing. I have already sold twelve copies of my first published book and I am very proud of that and expect to see that number rise over the next few months.

Well, it is time to get into my writing and I hope and wish everyone an awesome and blessed Sunday. Keep those smiles moving along and making a brighter day for someone else. Be blessed.

Hello, Everyone!! It is so good to be back. I finally got my internet installed here at my cousin’s house and now I can go back to writing to all of you wonderful people who encourage me to share my stories. I would have written yesterday which was my plan but I ended up having a very bad and stressful day that caused me to isolate from everyone.

Then, to top it all off, I went down to code enforcement to get the permit for the electrical only to find myself opening a pandora’s box of other issues and now it looks like we will have to undo all of our hard work from this house and try to salvage what we can and at least get part of the money back. So, we are stuck here at my cousin’s house until we can find a place to live.

My cousin wants us to stay here but she is bipolar and that doesn’t mix well with our mental health issues, so this is only temporary. Every day is a new drama scenario which makes it very difficult to write or even keep a clear mind for creativity.

Today seems to be a better day and now I am able to sit and write. I am working on three books at the same time, writing a half of a chapter to a whole chapter almost every day. so they should all be ready for publishing at the same time. I have plenty of books to write this year and look forward to each story and being a part of that world. It will be a nice escape for me and I am seriously considering a writer’s retreat to get away and be to myself and my writing.

Well, I have some short stories to post and look forward to another day of writing. I wish everyone old and new a beautiful and blessed day. Don’t forget to give a smile to someone to brighten their day. Be blessed.

Good morning everyone! I do apologize for not being here lately, but we had an offer from my cousin to move into her house while working on our own house so that we are not living in a garage. It took us two days to move stuff by car but we are getting it done. We are having to refinish the bedroom floor so that we can move into the bedroom but for now we are sleeping in the livingroom, but WE ARE INDOORS, YAY!

I am still currently working on next book which looks like it will be a full-length novel but will be a freebie to all subscribers to the newsletter. I am actually working on three books at one time which are going to be freebies in three different genres. I am pushing right along. My husband cleaned out a year’s worth of trash from my cousin’s garage in exchange for a 1991 ford explorer which will be our second vehicle that will be used for our nonprofit helping the homeless and needy families.

I just wanted to give an update on what things are happening and to let everyone know we are okay. I wish everyone a glorious and blessed day.

Good morning friends and family. It has been thundering and storming here since yesterday evening. When I got up about four this morning it was hailing outside and it got pretty loud since we are now inside of a metal garage. Other than that, it is pretty dismal here this morning but mentally I am okay so far.

Yesterday I had to revamp my daily schedule due to not meeting my word count goals so this coming week I had set two different sets of hour blocks so that I can work on two different books at the same time. The time blocks are three hours each which is plenty of time to work on each daily. I am excited to be writing and will be joining a webinar today to learn more about the writing process and marketing.

I am just waking up and having my first cup of coffee while writing this post. The dogs have gone out and are now back inside laying on the bed with my husband. We are actually having coffee together this morning since he is stuck inside and cannot work on the car. He will probably start playing video games here shortly which is his favorite thing to do.

I also began looking at and researching journals last night for submitting short stories and articles and will be submitting some soon. Plus, I have been looking for other authors who would like a little exposure to be featured in my newsletters. So anyone interested just message me and I will get some information from you to be placed in my weekly newsletters.

So, it has come time for me to wish everyone an awesome and blessed day because I need to get things going this morning to stay on schedule. I also want to wish anyone who has a birthday today a “Happy Birthday!” and have a great day.
