Never Easy

 

With today being Independence Day, I want to wish everyone a safe and memorable

Fourth of July! Thinking about independence I can’t help but go right to the choice we have every single day to begin our own revolutionary war withing ourselves for our own declaration of freedom from an old lifestyle, personality or habit that we no longer want to define us!

You no something, it’s hard! You bet it is! When I first began this blog back in 2008 (back when I was on Blogger) I was determined to make it a weekly blog about my trials and victories on the road to becoming a successful writer. I was super pumped and jumped right into it!

Now, ten years later, it’s hard. I find myself torn between Facebook posts, Twitter tweets, Instagram stories, YouTube videos, Medium content that I often become overwhelmed by working this all on my own. Regardless, my goal is to always share this crazy journey with you no matter what comes in front of me. Now it may not be every day or week (that must change for the week) I want you to know how much it means that you’ve been here for a decade!

There are days when I don’t feel up to writing, posting or tweeting, no one ever said it was easy, that’s why so many don’t have goals! Yet I feel that I am only a short time form the success of impacting others and have no doubt in the world that this journey is all worth the effort!

I have been gaining great reviews from those who have read my latest self-improvement/motivational book: WHEN THE STORM RUNS OUT OF RAIN and am super pumped to have this book in the hands of those who want to take their lives to the next level! I should have some of the first interior proofs in a few days and can’t wait to see what they look like!

With the success of my second 5K, I have kept with my routine of running the entire distance of my lake coarse near me and want you to know that when something is telling you that you can’t do it, your most times pretty close to making it a happen so don’t listen to that voice of negativity and go with your heart!

For now, Happy 4th and make memories!

First Call

This evening I jumped on the first call with Jennifer Deese who is laying out my upcoming self-improvement book: WHEN THE STORM RUNS OUT OF RAIN, due out in September!

We discussed the acknowledgement page, author bio page, possible photos inside, steps for the cover attachment and shot around ideas for the format and flow if the material itself. We should be seeing the first sets of PDF proofs within two weeks and I am pumped!

I have given Jennifer free reign to allow her creative professionalism to run crazy while she has vowed to connect with me often as we bounce ideas and positives as well as negatives to hammer out a beautiful package that will impact lives around the world!

Stay tuned as we close in on September and WHEN THE STORM RUNS OUT OF RAIN drops for readers everywhere!!WIN_20180621_20_00_18_Pro

So with tomorrow (Wednesday) approaching, I am super excited to be climbing on my first call with my interior designer for my new book, WHEN THE STORM RUNS OUT OF RAIN. Mrs. Jennifer Deese did an amazing job on my friend, Dr. Coyte G. Cooper’s bestselling, MAKE YOUR MARK and I could not be any more pumped to watch as she works her extraordinary magic on my book which has a release date set for Sept. 1st!

I admit I have no idea what we will cover in our first call but I am positive that it will be nothing less than epic talking points that will help move the needle of this earth! I will be back on tomorrow to let you know exactly how our call shapes up. Until then, have a great middle of the week and make your dreams happen!

 

Cover Reveal!!!!

I want to begin by wishing you a save and happy new year! My hope for you is nothing less than the magnificent life you have waiting for you!

It has been a long time coming for this moment. Once an idea in my head for a couple of years, now to the point that I am able to reveal the cover for my new book: WHEN THE STORM RUNS OUT OF RAIN!

This cover comes with the help of my good friend, Dr. Gage Caudell, not only a surgeon but a successful photographer who blessed me with the image seen above! This photo captures the very heart of this book and I am blessed to have him so graciously allow this cover to be here now!

I want to thank my son, Lynden for so much positive support through the writing of this book. My mentor and good friend, Dr. Coyte Cooper, for coaching me through some crazy moments and writing two books himself (Impressions, Make Your Mark) and being a guide for what a book should say. My new friend, Nicole Zeien-Cox, author of Foster To Fosters, for being the straw that broke the back of this camel and set the pace for a crazy 30 days of writing!

This book is now in editing and then to interior layout. It is scheduled for a 2018 publication date.

It is my wish for everyone who reads this book that they find the power, belief and will to make every goal they set a reality and know that sometimes a setback is the beginning of a comeback!

More posts will follow as time draws near publication. Wishing everyone a wonderful 2018!!!!
