Nonconformist or just bat-crap-crazy?

This will be one of my most self-debated, (should I or shouldn’t I), posts to date. It’s guaranteed to be the top controversial and I may even lose followers because of it.  I’m sure my husband will shake his head and wonder why I shared this with the world, but I’m tired of pretending…

I don’t believe in New Years Eve!

Okay that’s that factually inaccurate. I know it happens, I see everyone celebrating, heck I’ve even been to many parties over the years. Though each time when midnight struck and people whooped and kissed, I’d be trying to find the best place to hide so I wouldn’t have to fake enjoying that moment. 

I never got it. 

I don’t follow any religion and time was invented by man to make life easier. So why do we need one night to be the catalyst to launch our changes?

If you want to lose weight, do it when you think it.

Want to work harder, work harder right now.   

Need a major change in your life, what’s wrong with April or July?

January 1st is no different that any other 1st of the month, it’s another day to pay bills, cook dinner, take out the trash. Alright, I do enjoy not having to work for the man because it’s a holiday, but that’s how I treat every holiday. 

Social media makes these times hard on people with troubles, depression or losses, and it just annoys those like me. I’ve already had to play the happy wishes card. Dec 31 – Jan 1 will be the worst.

I play along because I’m polite, and I do care about peoples well-being, only I care EVERYDAY! Not just once a year. 

Now that my peace has been spoken, you can still  enjoy my books here!

Facts if you want: 

New years beginning
In pre-Christian Rome under the Julian calendar, the day was dedicated to Janus, god of gateways and beginnings, for whom January is also named. As a date in the Gregorian calendar of Christendom, New Year’s Day liturgically marked the Feast of the Naming and Circumcision of Jesus, which is still observed as such in the Anglican Church and Lutheran Church.[2][3]

Not one to believe in the supernatural, Emersyn, along with a new friend, take it upon themselves to conduct a seance for answers.
They get much more than they bargained for when they awaken an ancient evil. The same evil that haunted the past resident.
Now they must scramble with little time to stop it. When Emersyn’s past comes back to haunt her, and innocent people get hurt, she has nowhere to turn. Until a police officer inserts himself into her life, together they will do what they can to put an end to the deadly shadows forever.

Book Launch, the pleasure, the pain, and the rewards

new Cat Cover 300dpi.jpg
Paperback Book Wrap 

For those of you who do this regularly you know how difficult the road is. The hours, days, months and years to get  a story together.
If you have not seen one of my hundreds of posts yesterday – I finally hit publish on my novel.  Yeah me! (link at bottom)

And that’s only the beginning.

Next you have re-reading, editing, revising, editing, beta readers, editing. I’ve read this book so many times that I just can’t do it again.  

Why do we do this to ourselves? 

You still have to create a blurb, possibly a dedication page – don’t forget to thank someone – the begging for reviews and links at the end.  Then there is the perfect cover, if you’re like me and create your own, another headache may arise when you go to upload and you get size errors. Let the hair pulling begin. I tend to clench my jaw, and it will lead to a headache. But I persevere.

All ready hit upload and voila I have formatting issues to contend with. More clenching, spend hours adjusting the file. Try again, tap toes while the wheel spins…uploading…

And bingo we have a winner! Two or three stressful days later, I have a book online. In about a week, I’ll have a paperback in hand. 

Now I can celebrate. Today I did that by setting up a sit-stand desk. No more sore hip, slouching shoulders, or cricked up back. I hope.

I’m off to enjoy my new desk, standing style, and continue writing my next book. A complete 360 for me, a sci-fi.

So please be kind and check out my new book, leave me a review, or write to me personally. Heck, even if Horror is not your cup of tea, it helps if you share with friends. And thanks for reading my blogs!

You’re welcome to share your own book links in my comment section too, I enjoy reading and meeting new authors.
