Support My Friend

Don't forget to visit my post with best selling Amazon author Mandy Baggot, and her book Taking Charge. Her book tour is this week, going on right now!

I have an amazing story to share with you now. Through the HIMMH Blog Hop I met another amazing friend. We have something just a little in common and when I read her profile, I couldn't believe it!

Crystal's mother is legally blind. Here is what I found so amazing. My best friend from childhood mother is blind. Her father and mother BOTH are blind. Her mother (my friend, Robin. Her mom is DeeDee) just celebrated her 70th birthday! How amazing, right!

Crystal has such a beautiful blog with lots of informative blog posts. She could use a (((hug))) and some encouragement. You could hop over and sign up as a follower. Why not? There are tons of great informational articles over there. You will love it!

In honor of her support, you might consider signing the petition over at the American Foundation For the Blind. It's to help get material into the schools that will support a child who is blind. Check it out, please.

Let me know if you signed up, of started following Crystal. I don't think you will regret either choice:)


  1. OH WOW!!! I had no idea!! You are such an amazing person and I am just so blown away by your generosity and your support! Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart!! Bless you!!

    1. Thanks Crystal. I'm so glad you like the idea. I hope it gets you some followers:)

  2. And by the way, I just signed the petition! This petition deserves everyone's signature! Thank you so much for helping raise awareness!

    1. I know! When I found it, I thought it would be a great way to get people involved!

  3. Thank you so much Sharon. I have so many favorite backgrounds and blog banners and I like to change them regularly. This one is pretty cool, huh? I think you will REALLY like the one for the Carnival:)

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Operation Agent Ink

UPDATE: PLEASE FILL OUT THIS QUESTIONNAIRE AFTER YOU SIGN UP. Have you ever wondered what agents were dying to find in their inbox/slush pile? There have been many times I entered a contest and not even received a comment, not even from one of the agents. Or maybe the agent was kind enough to leave a comment that simply said, "Sorry, this just isn't what I'm looking for, but I love the premise and your voice." I always walk away feeling unsatisfied. If I had known exactly what the agent wanted beyond, "YA" or "Fantasy" I might not have even entered a contest I knew I wouldn't win! Even more, I wasted a very busy agents time! Well, your time of guessing is up! OPERATION AGENT INK to the rescue! That's right! This workshop will help aspiring authors get on the list of an agent's WISH LIST! When the workshop is over, your manuscript will be ready to view by a group of AMAZING agents who are dying to see what you've wri

Insecure Writers Group

Today, my feelings are mixed. On one hand, I've faced more rejection and that's not easy to write about or admit to the world. But I am not crying in my "milk" (no beer, folks:) I want to, but what good would it do??? I received a detailed critique from a "Best First Line" contest. The critique was the best I have ever received and seriously opened my eyes to "how" to improve my writing. Nice! Speaking of critiques, I am still looking for a critique partner. If anyone is looking back, please let me know and we can swap info. I'm sending off a YA query letter and first pages to 3 agents this week. Wish me luck. This will be the first time I have directly contacted and agent with a query. Yes, I'm nervous, so I'm saying again, WISH ME LUCK!!!
