My journey from writing to publication...
I am happy to announce that the second book in the Marishka Tanya Alexei series is now in the preproduction phase of the publication process, the first book A Sisters Justice was officially released in April,. The sales have been fairly steady despite a faltering economy. One thing I have discovered though is no matter how we are doing finacially, if we are readers we find a way to get the books we want to read.
I am going to finish up the Sisters Justice series hopefully in the next few months, and maybe begin working on a project with my friend and fellow Author Jean Marie Shea, her first book the Forgotten Little Tree was released this year, and is a great kids book and great for adults too.
I've written a book with co authors before, With a Little Help a book I wrote with my friends Karen and Karla in Texas, it was my third book and their first, and actually alot of fun to work on together!
I look forward to these projects I get to work on with others is always fun, but in a way I will be sad to see the Alexei series to end, the project has been a six year and counting project for me, and the characters tend to grow on you LOL!
In April I was honored to have my first book Reflections on Life as part of Aprils display of local authors, unfortunately I could not get A Sister's Justice to them in time so for now it is not part of the display.
The one thing I miss with celebrating the publication of A Sisters Justice, was being able to share the news with Mimmi and her always making sure to tell me how proud she was of me. Mimmi was like an older sister to me, she was in many ways that, but she was called home to the Lord in Feb 07, at only thirty six.
