You Never Give Up

Hello good peeps! I just wanted to stop by and 1) appologize for not posting lately and 2) update you on what's going on with The Grey Curse.

March 17th, 2014, I signed the contract with Breathless Press! I am still waiting on word on my first round of edits, but hopefully that email will come soon. In the mean time, I have been posting character introductions and a Tuesday Trivia on my Facebook page. I've ordered business cards to hand out at places and I'm browsing sites for some good swag to hand out once the time gets closer to release day. I spoke with my local library and discussed maybe reserving the banquet room for a kind of "Meet The Author" event. Since my book will be out in E-book form first, I obviously will not have copies to sign. BUT I should have some nice stuff to sign and give out. So if any of you are in the NW Kentucky/SE Indiana area, stop on by! I'll update you all on that once I set an actual date.

*happy sigh* I still can't believe this is actually happening! My dream of being a published author is coming true. A question asked to most authors is, "Why did you want to become an author?". Well, I've always loved writing. I think it stemmed from my love of reading. And I always wanted to see one of my own books in the hands of others. But the true reason? My daughter. You see, right now she's only a toddler and doesn't read or understand what it means that mommy is an author. But I'm still doing it for her. I want her to see that, with hard work, dreams can and do come true. I want her to see that despite all the bumps in the road, Mommy didn't give up. I want it to be a lesson to her that no matter what her dream is, she can accomplish it. And that she shouldn't give up, no matter how hard life is.

And this lesson goes for anyone out there who is trying to achieve their dreams as well. Don't give up. Don't let naysayers put you down. It's YOUR dream. Believe in yourself. Because I believe in you.

Wishing you all a fantabulous week ahead, full of happiness and love.



  1. Krista, I am so proud of you and I know Alice will be too. *hugs* You are instilling her with a wonderful example of strength and determination! <3

    1. *hugs tight* Thanks Boo. I'm trying to be the best mommy I can. Hopefully one day, she will proudly tell her friends that her mom is an author.
