Exciting News for the New Year 2019!

Dear Readers: I hope the New Year has started out well for all of you!

Most of you know I've been trying to get my first novel published for some time. I've come so close to obtaining an agent or publishing house, but the "traditional" route just isn't happening for me. So... I've decided to do it myself!

I'm publishing my novel, "Sea Horses," with Amazon/Kindle. It’s a story about second chances. I’ve completed the formatting process for the interior of my book, and I’m designing my cover. I’m using the stunning photo pictured above by Tom Way (www.tomwayphotography.co.uk) for my cover.

I am beyond excited! A huge thank you to all of you for supporting me by following my blogs and stories.  I've set a publishing date of February 2019. In the meantime, I've posted my first chapter of "Sea Horses" under my Stories section. You can read it here! I'd love your feedback!
