Time-Where has it gone?

So it’s been quite sone time since I’ve posted to this blog-I have recently wondered why I started it with 3 other jobs ?

A few updates about my children’s book-I have recently gotten the book into a Therapy dog website and am hoping for more exposure – it has gotten several wonderful reviews-I am very happy children and Toy Fox Terrier owners are enjoying it out there.

Hoping to get started on more art work for the next book soon now that the holidays are over-fingers crossed.

For now getting ready for some much need sleep.

Me

I do not know where I will end up or who I will be – changes you see-wherever it is I will be free-a new me you will see!!

Envy

Let’s talk about envy. This has happened to all of us. We have either been envious of others for what they do or had others been envious over what we do. Can’t we all just play nice. This is about a children’s book. It does not define the rest of our lives.

Expectations

Do you ever feel like there is just no satisfying other people? I don’t know about the rest of you but this happens quite often to me. Sometimes the most satisfied is my dogs. Remember this – only pets really offer unconditional love. The only expectations they have is their dinner!

Assumptions

Why do most people jump to conclusions especially when they don’t know all the facts? This is one thing that most irritates me. If you want to say something in reference to what someone else is doing be sure to have all the same information as the other person does.

Saturday Morning…

So its Saturday morning-lots to do and so hard to concentrate with Lizzi on my chest and this little man  in my face- just want to play, play, play!  I have been busy, busy, busy on my marketing quest with The Adventures of Lizzi: Lizzi learns how to Fly-sending submissions out to several more possible carriers this morning.  I will never stop on a dream 4 years in the making.

A short story..

It was 3am and I woke up in a fright. It was quiet in the house-could not even hear a mouse-the moon was bright and appeared to be daylight-I woke up quickly and looked at the clock and heard it going tick tock tick tock- the dogs woke up too and noticed something new – a bright angel just hovering in the room and said do not worry we always watch over you-we went back to sleep and woke up anew.

Great Night!

I sent some books out on Monday and was delighted to get a tagged photo on Facebook of a little boy holding my book-too young to read but so loved the illustrations-it made my night and also got a couple more positive reviews from several other people that received my book The Adventures of Lizzi: Lizzi Learns How to Fly. And this book is available at this link now on my website:

Keep going!!!!

imageOk so as much as I wanted to go to the beach I did not go today-since I was not called in to work I decided to utilize my time being as productive as I could to obtain my dreams and I will not stop!

I spent the morning revamping my website and Facebook page and then started my marketing pursuit to get my children’s book into stores. I know this will be a long road ahead but imagine the possibilities once I get them into a store. I like a challenge-I say bring it on!!!
