My plan for 2023 is to crush my goals!
My Writing Journey is a marathon, but I’m walking not running because I don’t want to miss any of the fun along the way.
My overall goal has always been to write books that people enjoy, so my motto is no surprise: You keep reading; I’ll keep writing!
I’m a natural-born storyteller, but the skill of coaxing a story onto a page for a reader to enjoy was a craft that required extra work for me. I’m still learning, so I can write better books faster. For you wonderful readers that finish a book then tell me you’re ready for the next one: I’m working on it!
My next big hurdle after finding my writing style was how to get the stories in front of the right reader who will not only read the story, but love it, and want another and another. I’m still learning that elusive skill called marketing, which will put my books into the hands of the right readers. I’m stumbling along, but it’s fun to learn, and I’m encouraged when I hear how much you enjoy my books!
