Today is Good Friday. There was one thing I didn't give up this Lent season and that is writing, March was some month. My book, SILVER LININGS, is nearly ready for but dare I say it, publication or uploading after formatting. There will be no more rewrites of this chapter scene or dialogue moved. It's time for the story to debut and either sink or swim. Truthfully, I consider it a huge accomplishment to finish the book and put it out there to the critics. Let's hope the reviews are kind. This first book takes me from virgin wanna-be author to learning the craft and having a set of steps I will follow for every additional title. I took each step, baby steps actually, with my critique partner, Nina Lekka. She was my muse, my inspiration and a good friend for life.
