So, like most other authors out there, I have a day job. A demanding day job. With dismay, I have been watching the days of my vacation melt away. Something had to be done! In a grand effort to stave off the inevitable, I decided I should take a vacation. It would be good to get my mind off things, I thought. So last week, I booked a last minute vacation to Cuba, and I leave bright and early tomorrow morning.
Sounds good, right? Well, that's what I thought, too. And it will be, so long as the aptly named hurricane Danielle stays the course and keeps her distance. Oh- and Earl, who is expected to follow shortly afterward, is certainly not invited! At first, I thought, Cool! It's about time a hurricane was named after me! (And that's Danielle, NOT Earl, by the way!)
In any case, I've been through a number of typhoons before, when I lived in Taiwan, so I'm not overly concerned. I suppose this will simply make my vacation a little more interesting, if the storms in question do decide to drop by.
I just hope I'll get to see a little sun! Stay posted to hear about the resulting adventures...
This is it... the launch of my new website, and I am so excited!
Over the past few months, I have discovered (to my dismay!) that the road to getting a book published is a long, bumpy one, indeed! Picture a road that you thought you could traverse in no time at all... then imagine yourself on that same road, months later, only to discover that not only is it very poorly marked, your directions were ambiguous, your car keeps breaking down, and you've only managed to travel the first short section of it. Then you find out that if you wish to keep going, you'll have to continue construction on the road yourself. And so now I'm wondering: Is my road--the one I've struggled to lay down over the past number of months--even headed in the correct direction?
If anyone has a great road map to share with me, please let me know!
So, this site is one of many steps that I'm taking in order to try to increase the scope of both my name as an author, and interest in my book, Wormwood. I'll try to keep you updated on my adventures with the publishing world through this blog.
As for myself, I'm a relatively new author, who previously spent most of my time either reading or teaching the writing process to my students. After years of encouraging them to write, I thought it was time that I followed my own advice.
