What do you think of the new blog design? I like the simpleness and the misty setting reminds me of where my books are set: in the fictional Akara Mountains in Tennessee. The bridge is an image that particularly jumps out at me because it’s important in my stories. Hint: the dead ones often walk there, waiting for unsuspecting trespassers. I’ve updated my “About Me” page and added a new one with members of YAFF links and other writerly ones. I will still be posting book reviews and updates/writer advice hopefully on Tuesdays and Thursdays still. Although this schedule may take a hit until the new year gets in swing. The only thing that may change about it is that I may post every other week. Although I LOVE blogging and keeping in touch with all of you, it’s getting harder to find topics that aren’t covered elsewhere. Another big issue: I need writing/editing time and a lot of times that’s pushed out of the way in favor of the blog. If I don’t work on my books, I won’t be able to strive to reach my goal of publication. I’ve been torn in this reality for half of this year, now I’m making a choice: my stories need to come first. I’m sure you all understand how hard it is to find time as it is to do this thing I love. Life gets in the way. I’ll slowly be backing off a lot of social media sites as well. They just occupy too much of our hours. Not that I don’t enjoy them, but the time just whittles away so fast and nothing’s left for storytelling. I know this may sound a little like “a goodbye” but it’s not. It’s just a pause to refocus on my creativity. Until my next post, take care, and God bless!!
