Welcome to my writing blog, where I'll write about....whatever pleases me. But really, you'll find my poetry, quotes, snippets of stories, and recounts of things I've learned about writing and would like to share (because I like sharing, and information sharing can be quite invaluable). So, come on in, sit back, browse around, and let your mind wander through poetry and other musings of this writer. :)

At the beginning of the year, I set a goal for myself to publish my story...this was the year I would become a published author.  Well, I'm happy and proud to say that not only did I become a published author, I became an international best selling author, and #1 Best Seller in the US.  I am proud of the 105 other women co-authors - from all over the world - who collected their own inspirational stories and the work of Carla Wynn Hall and Laurie K. Grant to pull it all together into this beautiful anthology called Chocolate and Diamonds for the Woman's Soul.  The Kindle version released on September 13th (no Kindle required - I don't own one, but I have the app on every device I own so I can read wherever I am :)), and we're still sitting as #1 best seller in the US, and almost there in Canada.  The paperback will be released on October 4th.  I know some people are holding out for the paperback - me too.  But I couldn't wait to read this collection!  As much as I love holding a book in my hand, I also love the convenience of being able to read a book on my phone.  So, I have both, and almost always purchase both the Kindle and hard copy, especially when supporting my fellow author friends (of course, I want the hard copy with their personal message to me - it's a great way to connect!).

Chocolate & Diamonds for the Woman's Soul is a collaboration of stories from 104 writers who have released their legacy. Hot Pink Publishing hosts compilation programs for women who wish to tell their story. Our "Diamonds" shine brightly through every page. Unwrap the stories as you allow them to take you into the lives of women who have truly made an impact on the world through their stories. 

From stories of becoming instantly blind at the age of 23, to living life with a disabling condition, there is something in this book for everyone. 

SHE is a Diamond 

SHE has walked through the fire of adversity. 
SHE is a survivor or Domestic Violence. 
SHE is a cancer thriver. 
SHE released guilt, held for a lifetime. 
SHE wrote her story. 
SHE shines bright. 

Chocolate and Diamonds for the Woman's Soul contains "Timeless Treasures" to warm the heart and soothe the soul. Get it on Amazon! Get it for yourself, or as a gift...you'll love it, and we'll love you for supporting us! 

With my story, "Remembering Me and Breaking Free", my hope is that you will be inspired to have the courage to remember who you are and be free to be your true self, no matter what!  It's the story of how I came to remember who I truly was, and my yearning to be free to be me and to be loved as ME.  It's not the whole story (there's a ton more I have to say about it - that's coming; I'm currently working on the whole story, my journey of awakening, and hope to have it ready to publish in 2016).  In the meantime - FEED YOUR SOUL WITH SOME CHOCOLATE AND DIAMONDS!  Happy reading XOX
