Hey there friends and fans!! I hope life has treated each and every one of you absolutely wonderfully of late. Personally my adjustment to a new city, new job and new home has finally lead to a fairly adjusted schedule, at least for now. Hopefully things will continue to work out well.
As many of you may remember from earlier in the year, last weekend was the Appalachian Heritage Writers Symposium. It was an amazing experience, as always, and it inspired me even more to make a dedicated effort to my writing. With any luck this will work out well, since it seems that life may be calming down a bit and I will hopefully be able to set a schedule that will allow me to dedicate time each day, or at least each week, to attempting to get something out there!
In addition to this general hope, I have decided that I am going to try a few new ways of advertising my work to anyone who may be interested, one if which I am hoping you’ll all participate in. I am starting a newsletter! I’ll be setting it up this week, and hopefully have the first one out by the weekend. I plan to make a post on here and on my Facebook author page giving the details on how to sign up for it. I plan to use it to give people an idea of what I am working on, where my works in progress are in the development and editing process and will even be giving some exclusive excerpts to those who subscribe!
My goal, in case I haven’t run it into the ground yet, is to have something in the process of publication by the end of this year. With the help of my friends and fans, as well as dedication and effort on my part, I know I can make that happen. So I thank you all for your support and well wishes. You have no idea how much it means to me. I sincerely hope to have some new work to share with you all very soon!! Feel free to contact me and leave any and all comments you wish! I’m glad to be back!
One thought on “Trying Harder”
Best wishes for your journey.
In one part of the ‘West Midlands/Black Country’ of the UK there was an old saying which spoken phonetically came out as ‘Yaw gi’ it som ‘ommer’ – ‘You give it some hammer’; closest today would be ‘Go for it’ (looses something in translation).
