Im having a hard time believing that travel, ANY travel, is off the table for the foreseeable future. It makes me really regret the travel opportunities I havent taken recently. Two years ago we went to England for a week, almost on a lark, and I remember being super grumpy about being forced to go to England all of a sudden (it was business travel for my husband, but he wanted me to come along). It turned out to be the best trip! And now I miss England so much.
.
On top of that, Ive had vague plans to go to Hawaii in order to write and research a series set in the 1970s Honolulu of my childhood. I kept pushing off this series because Hawaii is so far, and once again...it seemed like a lot of trouble to do the traveling. And now, who knows when Ill get there? Im feeling so sad that I have so many friends that I wont see for a long time.
.
Its funny that I was trying to think of bucket list destinations and I kept coming up with places like England and Hawaii, places that I know so well! Are you missing the ability to travel? Wheres the first place youll head out to?

So I just finished ANGELOPOLIS, by Danielle Trussoni. Its the sequel to ANGELOLOGY, which I read a couple of months ago. Theyre both incredibly suspenseful, have a lot of plot twists and turns, and have a suitably creepy vibe. Ive never been into angels, and after reading these books, Ive been thinking about how creepy angels really are. Id always thought of them as benevolent, beautiful creatures in churches. But now that I think about it, the weeping angel episodes of Doctor Who are the most memorable and most terrifying episodes of all! And possibly some of the scariest television Ive ever seen.

So whats your take on angels? Creepy? Beautiful? Do they have a place in your world?

I’m a couple of days late on the #authorschallenge2020 for Monday, oops! I was writing all day so I hope that’s a good excuse! Here’s my self-encouragement post. I published my first book at the very end of 2018...it was difficult for me to put it out into the world, difficult to read those first reviews, difficult to accept that people were actually going to read my story!
.
It’s still difficult, I won’t lie. But once in awhile, I  encouraged by a sign, and then I have the strength to keep going. In May I learned that my first book, THE PORTRAIT, had earned an honorable mention in the Eric Hoffer Award competition. This is the same book that some reviewers hated and that I was so scared to release to the world!
.
You can’t please everyone, and some people make it their business to criticize and try to snuff out your voice. With every passing day I get stronger and braver. And once in awhile, someone reaches out to tell me that I’m doing a good job after all.
