Ancient Guardians: The Legacy of the KEy, Ancient Guardians: The Uninvited

My inspiration for the Guardian horses in the Ancient Guardians series “Knights of Shadow – Friesian Horse” on YouTube

An amazing tribute to the friesian horses! I was inspired to use this particular breed of horse to create the Majestic Guardian War Horses in the Ancient Guardian novel series! In doing research for my book, this is one video I watched many times in order to write about Areion, Saracen and Arrow who you’ll soon learn more about as the series moves foward! I hope you’ll enjoy the captivating beauty of the Friesian horse in this video!

Michael Vick posted this quote on Facebook…and as I am preparing to publish another book in my series, this quote hit home! I decided to make a collage of me as a young, new writer and the fact that I am learning something new with every edit and critique! Writing is the easy and fun part for me…editing, revising, editing and combing through a book a million times before publishing for the entire reading world to love or hate, THAT is the hard part! I’ve had professional editors on the job, but I believe the person who sacrifices the most in regard to getting one of my books to publish, is my biggest critic….and I would never have the courage to publish without her!

The High price of being a writer!

I felt the need to post this for all of us writers out there that pour our heart and souls into our manuscripts! Obviously, we neglect a lot of things while we write, re-write, revise, edit, revise, rewrite, edit, write, write and write and then eventually we have the courage to publish.
I should finally have my second book “The Uninvited” published this month and today I’m on my way to meet with my hair dresser! Let’s just say…I haven’t seen her in a while!
With that said, I’m reminded of one of my favorite scenes in the movie: “Just Go with it!” I have a strange feeling my hairdresser will be saying the same thing!!!
(And yes, my husband would act just like Adam Sandler in this scene!) 😉
Enjoy!

Way to go, OU Sooners!!!!

I have to give a special shout out to our favorite college football team!!! I was so nervous about this game! So nervous, in fact that I felt like I was publishing the un-edited first draft of my book for the entire world to read and critique, when the game started!
But, as true OU Fans we put our jerseys on and were ready to support our boys!!! All I can say is that this was the best game ever!!! Sooners brought their Magic and Alabama made them work for their win! WOW!!!
Now, let’s just hope that once I publish book 2 in my series, it will be just as fascinating for the readers as the Sugar Bowl was for us OU fans!!! 😉

My resolution for 2014 is to finally publish Ancient Guardians: The Uninvited (Book 2) So that my readers are finally able to read the second book in my series! We’re on final edits/test reads/Book Cover proofing….just ordered ISBN and filed with the Library of Congress!!!! Woooo-Hoooooo this is one happy writer!!!! And the fantastic part? Once The Uninvited is published….I get to start revising and editing Book 3! Good thing I love to write because “The Character’s” have decided they want their story told in five books!
Happy New Years, Everyone! And thank you all for your support in 2013!!!
