Taking a Long Breath

I have found my attention being pulled in several directions and it was time for me to pull back from social media.  While I never stopped working on my manuscripts or completely stopped communication online, I decided that it was time for a much needed break.  For me, that meant not posting as much.  When I did that, I found that I had more time to just relax and recharge and write.  I am slowly drifting back to social media and posting, but I loved the quiet time I experienced when I shut off the internet that I may just spend more days in solitude, trying to get as much work as possible done.

I've been working hard on my manuscripts, one being Wicked Voices.  My editor already finished editing the first third and had no complaints about the plot, so I am moving forward on that.  The other manuscript that I am working on needed a few changes and I am almost done with those changes.  Overall, this time has been spent productively, despite the rest periods in between.

I have joined Blab Reads and will be posting on there.  I really want to see what the YA audience likes and would be interested in reading, testing out new material perhaps.  Join me on there if you can.

I am going to post Scattered onto Smashwords to make it available to a wider audience.  Amazon didn't thrill me with advertising/promotion it as it is meant to when one is exclusively selling on there.  I am also thinking of writing a story exclusively for in the future, but that may be a few months away since I am working on two manuscripts right now.

Thank you for hanging in there with me.  More quality work is on its way.
