Good Morning, Bloggers!

Just wanted to let you know the reason I will not be answering any blogs today. My goal for today is to self-publish 2 books on Amazon! My Hubby and I worked all weekend getting them ready.

The first one is Book 7 of my Young Adult series, Ruby & Nolan’s Great Adventures in Space. This one is called “Decisions.” The basic premise is that many factions have decisions to make. The Consortium from Old Earth is demanding compensation for their cost of sending colonists to what they thought was uninhabited planet now called New Earth. The Colonists must either pay what the Consortium is demanding or to deny their demands and back them up with muscle.

The Youngsters have made their way quietly to the unexplored continent across the Ocean. Their decision is when they asked for permission to explore the continent, they were told it was too dangerous! Do they wait for permission or do they go anyway? Will their parents make them come home when they discover where they are? New Earth inhabitants could be in for a bumpy ride!

The second book is called “Options,” and it has a strong Real Estate theme, but under that theme is murder and a little sexy love. I was a Realtor for 30 years and much of the fodder for my books came from that background. All the names were changed to protect the guilty! “Options” Book 2 in my Maye West Mysteries series. The first book is called “Murder on Lake Haverly.” It is available on Amazon in eBook, paperback and audio.

When I get these two books self-published I will have 14 books available on Amazon and on Barnes and Noble. If you would be so kind, please go to Amazon or Barnes and Noble and leave me a review after reading any of them. Reviews mean “everything” to authors! I will be forever grateful! I often go online and read them, it gives me courage to keep on writing.

Thank you and have a wonderful day, and stay safe!

Biography Creating worlds, characters, and wielding power like a madwoman, making my characters happy, sad, angry, and some of them with no redeeming qualities. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I sometimes laugh out loud when I am writing a scene, and I have been known to cry when one of my favorites has to die. I am a left-handed Gemini, what do you expect? Reading bedtime stories to my two children until they fell asleep or until they just told me to go away, was fun. Making up wild stories for my grandchild, and creating Halloween costumes from Cowboys to a Dragon, was another favorite thing to do. I missed that so much when they were grown, that I started writing. My yearly newsletters frequently were drafted third-person by my Love Birds, Miranda our motorhome, and by Sir Fit the White Knight, our faithful Honda. Throughout the years, some of my creative talents centered around writing letters of complaint expressing my displeasure with services or products. One crucial, at least to my Son, was a note to our local school bus driver petitioning her to allow him back on the bus. He was kicked off for making an obscene gesture at his buddy. I reminded her that it was not directed at her, and that “obscenity can be in the eye of the beholder,” kids use that gesture as a greeting. He rode the bus until he graduated. I loved driving my English teacher crazy. Leaving a “continued next week” at the end of my five handwritten pages required each week. He was one of many people that suggested I “do something about my writing.” I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks at the top of my class. After 30 years, in the trenches as a Real Estate Professional, I have found that truth is stranger than fiction. My books are filled with characters I met in that profession. Their names were changed to protect the guilty. Others were from people we met traveling around the country in Miranda, our Motorhome. I am married nearly 60 years to the love of my life, Shirl, and partner-produced two exceptionally talented children, and one grandchild who is our pride and joy.
