Power of One

Featured

As of 10 p.m. tonight, I have written three complete novels. One is published and two have release dates. It is a miracle that I accomplished in less than two years what I was unable to accomplish for many years before. There is one difference. I have the mental support that everyone tells you that you should have but you think you can do it on your own.  Well let me tell you I am proof that with the right person in your corner you can do amazing things.

All it really takes is that one person to have your back. That one person to make sure you eat and get enough rest. That one person to let you cry when the words won’t come. That one person to slap you (figuratively) back into your right mind when you feel sorry for yourself.  That one person who will tolerate your tantrums. That one person to celebrate with you when you reach your goals. That one person to be the strength when you are weak. That one person to be your voice when you have none. That one person to keep the faith. That one person to be proud of you and who lets the world know it. That one person to love you through it all.

Believe in the power of one.

Love = Inspiration

Featured

I was asked recently what inspires me to write? The first thing that popped in to my head is that people inspire me.  People in all their crazy mixed up emotions. Then after I thought about it, love and compassion inspire me. Not just the existence or demonstration of love but the lack of it. I write about love that is pure without an agenda and I write about pseudo love that has an agenda, mission of greed or need for control in the name of love.

17424734_1464385983580101_3797682253470795205_nLove is actually quite easy, that is if we remove the conditions. You cant make people really love you‚ all you can do is love them with no expectations and no conditions. The strange thing is, what you give comes back. It often isn’t how you thought it would be however it does come back. If you can live with what it really is you will not feel so alone or incomplete.

If I can shine a light on the fact that the giving of pure unconditional love is the answer to most of our  problems, deepest hurts and relationship issues in life, then I will continue to write.

Believe in the radical power of love and here’s a thought, love everyone unconditionaly. Period.

In the Weeds

Featured

Now that the first of the Perdido Key Novels is released in to the wild I am pecking away in the weeds at number three, There and Back. In this installment we will see that Mr. William Porter is put to the task to save yet another damsel from an evil force. Mr. Porter doesn’t see himself as a hero, but everyone who knows him would disagree with that.  He is trying to do what is right. Oh my, and that hat. I should give it a name!

The second book is finished and in the hands of my editor J.B. Garner.  OK, I say finished, it is in a decent third draft state, but not finished. Garner and I are about to begin the dissecting surgery of the editing process. In Almost There we jump several years in to the time line and meet a very adult Briana Dario with some interesting drama in her life. You will get a snipet in the epilogue of We Will Get There (WWGT, as I have affectionately started calling it.) So let me know what your impression is of her. I think she is amazing.

As always, I welcome your comments and emails. I respond to them all.

Happy Reading!
