Sons of Liberty

I’m so excited!  Tonight Sons of Liberty premiers on the History Channel at 9 pm.  It will only run for three nights but it looks interesting.  History Channel did something similar about the Hatfields and McCoys and it was awesome!  I also love the show Vikings!  So if you’re a history buff who loves new takes on old stories tune in tonight!

 

I’m up!

Today I got an email saying that I finally accepted into the Goodreads author program!   Yeah!  I’ll provide the link below.  But for now let’s celebrate!

New Segment

Greetings!

I was shifting through some of my work later this evening, and I came across my poem folder.  Now I’m not going to lie, some of them are quite cringe worthy, but some I still like.  I don’t write many poems but I would like to share some of them with you.  The one that I’m starting off with is something that I wrote in 2005 back when I was an angry teen, but didn’t really know who I was angry at.  However, as I read it, it stands pretty true (to me) for today’s problems.  So I hope you enjoy it and I’ll try to feature a poem once a month.

 

Land of the Free

Oh say can you see
we are the land of the free
Lies that we have been told from birth
that are empty and have no worth
But the only time that they are true
is only when we look like you.

Oh what a hypocrisy
our country has become to be
so that those who think differently
become the public’s enemy.

Those who are of a different race
are now a public’s own disgrace
And those who are not like the norm
are beaten, harassed, and torn
And they who look with different eyes
are looked upon with despise

Oh what a hypocrisy
our country has become to be
so that those who think differently
become the public’s enemy.

So what I now ask of you my country
it’s really only a small little thing
Rethink how you claim to be
the precious land of the free.

So Hard to Say No.

While I was proofing The Lost Guardian, I took it to work so that I could work on it during my down time.  I also wanted to show my kids.  They were amazed.  They’ve never meet anyone who has wrote a book.  One girl kept saying, “Oh my God!  You’re famous!”

Needless to say, I laughed and set her straight.  No…I’m not famous.  I’m just published.  Would I like to be famous?  It could be fun, but for now, I’m just happy to be done.

Then I got bombarded with questions about my book.  They looked so sad when I told them that my book was for adults and not children.  Then one little boy told me, “Then write one for us.”  The rest of the class immediately agreed with him.  How could I say no to those little faces.  So reluctantly, I’m digging through some of my old stories to see if I have any that are age appropriate.  anigif_enhanced-14358-1412804594-2

I’m touched that they wanted to by my book.  I hope that this will show them that anyone can do anything, as long as they work hard and keep going.  I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but I knew that I would never get anything published because it’s such a hard field to get into.  But now there are so many options available.

So to my kiddies…follow your dreams no matter what.

Greetings!

Evening people,

I know, I know, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything.  But in my defense, we had to do a lot of testing before the kiddies went off for their Winter Break.  Speaking of taking a break, the first half of my break was spent with my husband’s family.  It was nice; we really didn’t do anything.  I got to work on my novel a bit and did a little self-promoting.  Hey whatever it takes right?  Ha ha.

The trip back was killer.  It took us two hours to get through a section of road that usually is only 45mins.  Here are the reasons why: one, holiday travel.  Two, two accidents, and three, a Winnebago caught fire.  Luckily, no one got hurt but my husband and I were hurting by the time we finally got back home.  We were supposed to make a trip to hang out with my folks for New Year’s but we decided to pass.  Neither one of us really wants to deal with traffic anymore.  Plus, I really haven’t had a chance to just laze about with my hubby.  Work usually leaves me drained, and I’m studying to get my certification so I can get my license, teaching license that is.  Although, my hubby just got a PlayStation 4 as a Christmas gift to himself, so I’m not sure how much time we’ll actually get to spend together.  I also got a new game…so yeah….

In other news, I had to report my proof as lost in the mail because I ordered it a month ago yesterday and it still hasn’t arrived.  I notified Createspace and they apologized.  I should be receiving a new copy by the 31st.  If everything is good, then I’ll make The Lost Guardian available to purchase soon after.  I’m so ready to have it done, you have no idea.  I’ve already started on the next installment, but I haven’t made much progress.  My plan is to get a good chunk done during this last week of my break.

I hope you guys had a marvelous Christmas, or whatever it is you practice.  Please be safe during New Year’s and here’s hopping that 2015 is better that 2014!
