What I’m Reading…

rrhc

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was the surprise best seller of 2011—an unprecedented mix of YA fantasy and vintage photography that enthralled readers and critics alike. Publishers Weekly called it “an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters.”

This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine’s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.

Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly mesmerizing) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight readers of all ages.

I decided to toss my keyboard and gel pen into the ring to give NaNoWriMo a whirl. I did. I slayed it in five days. So, I continued with a few more words; I ended at 105,728. I am a grateful cookie cake. #NaNoWinner2016.

Thank you to my lovely writing cookie cake, Beth Prentice. We were a team. #WORDSLAYER

I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF YOU! THANK YOU, COOKIE CAKES!!!

fullsizerender-27Yesterday my debut novel, Even Tough Women Can Crack Like Eggs Sometimes, was released. I ended up mostly resting due to a sinus thingamajig, which has me doing the same thing today. I only opened my computer to type this up to say THANK YOU TO EVERY ANGEL WHO DOWNLOADED MY BOOK YESTERDAY. It is because of ALL OF YOU my book is A BESTSELLER, A HOT NEW RELEASE and the reason I can add BESTSELLING AUTHOR to my title. You have made a little girl’s prayer, a woman’s reality. I am in tears as I type this, so please forgive any and all typos. There aren’t enough words to express what is in my heart, and thank you doesn’t seem to even touch the surface. I am blessed to have some AMAZING women in my world and two of my angels. Beth Prentice and Tanya R. Taylor kept me posted on my ranking. I finally lifted my stuffed head to see for myself after Beth told me I hit #58. And when Tanya shared a screenshot, I realized my rump better grab a screenshot or two. At first, I thought I was too stuffed to comprehend what was going on. I cannot believe I held the #2 spot in Hot New Releases for two days. I snapped that in case I was too feverish. I am still processing all of this, so please forgive me if I am radio silent – or semi silent for the next several days. I will be resting and working behind the scenes. I completed four books in two months and now I do not know how to have an “off” day. If I am not on my computer writing, I am writing by hand and handling the publishing side of things. I will take off tomorrow to spend it with my trio of blessings and RELAX. I’ll let ya know how that turns out. 😉dmtobthank-you-monkey

I want to thank Tanya R. Taylor for standing beside me through this entire journey as an author.; while excavating, experiencing and reliving the pain, Tanya , encouraged me and reminded me how TOUGH I was. And when the agony was excruciatingly unbearable, my Bahamian sister crawled along with me. I could not have done this without my Rosary and my Taylor family. Thank you, Rosary, with all my heart…now get to bakin’! Giggle.
