You can’t beat this morning view.
This month I’ve been simplifying my life. Actually, it started a couple years ago, but I’ve kicked it into gear.
I’m moving at the beginning of next year, and I’m downsizing. I don’t need the excess furniture, or rooms that are rarely used. I had much less stress in my life when I live comfortably in a one bedroom place with a great view. I’ll be going from a 3/2 to a 2/2 (I need one room for bookshelves *koff*) with a beach view (all hail Florida – yes, I love the odd).
I used ThredUP to donate some of the better handbags, totes, clothes, and shoes that only took up space. I can’t walk in heels anymore. I wear size 5 – it’s a challenge on my best days.
Today, it has taken a turn toward my writing life. I’m donating blank/empty journals and notebooks. I have clients who love to write (they don’t know what I do on the side) – one is 10 yrs old.
I feel lighter already. 🙂
The rights to my contemporary romantic suspense, Smolder, have been returned to me effective 5/9/15. This book, more suspense than romance, honestly Ella spends more time trying to get away from a serial killer than being romanced by Dimitri, who’s luscious. The romance is there though, and the happily ever after variety.
I’m going to send the book through a round of edits and get a new cover made. Then, Ella and Dimitri will be out there again!
In the next three weeks, Contessa will be available in paperback at Amazon.com through Createspace. I’m also looking at the paperback/hardcover options at Nookpress.
The paperback cover is amazing. Thanks to Syneca Featherstone for her amazing work.
The book is in review at Createspace. It will be on sale for $9.99. The reason for the high price, which I wouldn’t hike up if I didn’t have to – is in the graphic below. Amazon insists a book of 366 page be AT LEAST $8.74. In order for me to make 75 cents a book, it’s at $9.99.
