IT'S BEEN A WHILE!
Updated: Jun 28, 2020
It's been a while since I posted anything.
I won’t lie, writing, and publishing hasn’t been easy. I’ve made mistakes. Put trust in people, gave them two, sometimes three chances, only to be disappointed. That is my doing. I generally follow my gut and when I don't - even when it’s screaming at me to do the opposite - I’ve paid the price. Bottom line, always listen to your gut.
ALWAYS FOLLOW YOUR GUT.
I’ve spent the last few weeks rebranding the covers in the first series, and updating the books. I even tried another provider for my website but that didn’t turn out, so I’ve gone back to my original provider. My fault. Seems I’m terrible at coding. Unfortunately, I now need to wait a few weeks to have my domain transferred back. At present I have a coming soon page highlighting my rebranding until I've updated everything and transferred the domain.
Another lesson in my writing journey.
There were times I wanted to chuck it in.
Forget about the dream.
Go back to a full time nine to five job.
BUT I’M NOT.
I’m still plugging on.
Driven to do what I love, and earn enough to live a simple comfortable life.
Stay tuned. New announcements are coming. A rebranding reveal is fast approaching, and a new genre reveal is coming. I’m writing under a pen name - Smitty Joan. Smitty is a combination of my initials, and letters in my son's first names. Joan was my mum’s middle name.
COVID-19 may have disrupted my life - as it has so many others - but it’s given me a push to be more determined than ever! I can do this!
Stay healthy. Stay safe. Let’s make the rest of 2020 great!
Gratitude +++ sending love and light your way.
