Labor of Love


What do you think of my beautiful header? I’m my own blogger, writer, photographer, cover designer, and marketeer. Yes, I’ve put myself out there even with two 1-star reviews. Why?

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. If anything I sure am getting better and better. Eventually those reviewers won’t bother and maybe I’ll get a few that like the stories. I’ve been warned about the review thingy. If you have read my books, please take five minutes and leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads.

Recently I reread a manuscript and shook my head at the very first sentence with its awkwardness. Why didn’t I catch that dis-pleasurable play of words? Maybe because I’m still learning, almost there or just a writer who is human. Possibly, some manuscripts are better than others, even among my own slush pile!

Could it possibly be that I’m doing too much, the work of six or seven employees? We women ya know have that Wonder Woman complex going most of the time. I believe she has a movie coming out, must go see that one.

Though it doesn’t seem like I’m overextended or trying too hard, ya know the saying about when you like what you do it’s not work. Yes, that one. Let’s just call it a labor of love. Wink, wink.

Above is another cover I made for Into the Vines, my contemporary novel of fiction via Thinkstock Images & Amazon KDP. The other paintings are by Claude Monet (the luncheon, the gardens, the train station 1887) which inspired me when writing a few scenes in the book. These are available on Wikimedia Commons, a sharing site for art work on the net.

Thank you for stopping by.
