Are you sick of hearing that yet?

I remember one New Year’s Eve, years back, a friend’s mother was crying. Not wailing. Not howling. Just quietly sobbing. When I asked about it, I got an answer that surprised me at the time. She was sad at all the years that had passed. That made no sense to me at the time.

While so many people look forward to a new coming year with positive attitudes, some sadly look at another year gone by with regret. To end a decade, and not just one year, must magnify that.

That’s how I felt last night. I felt that sob in the back of my throat. Crying is wonderfully cathartic and can clear your head.

2020 marks a milestone, it was August 2010 when I started writing my first novel. Ten years I’ve been at this. I’ve learned more in the last year than anything else. And I hope for a successful year and deliver books and stories you’ll want to read.

    I like to read but just haven’t had the money to buy a new book for the past two years. Reading a book it’s like I can see hear feel what I’m reading

  2. Jen says:

    I really enjoyed this book. However, the ending was a bit ruined for me. I am a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. It’s distracting and disappointing when authors attempt to write about medicine/anesthesia and have obviously not performed or understood the proper research prior to writing about medical scenarios.

      Hi Jen, thanks for reaching out. The comment came through the home page of my website so I actually don’t know which book you’re referring to. I throw a dose of medical drama in many books. What a lot of people don’t know about me is that I’ve struggled with medical ailments my whole life. Lots of doctors, lots of surgeries for lots of different things. I never want one of my books to be a disappointment and I am sorry to ruin an ending. If you’re talking about my latest book, Drawing Bloodlines, and if you did enjoy the book and want to read more into the series, Book 2, is Guarding Bloodlines (Loren and Julianna, and I promise you, no medical situations, unless a vampire turning counts, hint 🙂 I would be happy to send you an advanced reader copy when I get it from my publisher. If it was one of my Darling Cove books, let me know and I will gift you another book in the series of your choice. Thank you again for reaching out.
