I've been busy with company this past week, so I haven't had much of a chance to work, but I'm not complaining for my company (cousin Lorraine and her hubby Randy) are the best and we had such a great time together! Anyway, since they left, I have been polishing up my latest picture book, and writing (ad nauseum, I may add) on my sequel, though I think I may trash all I've written and start fresh chapters. Ugh. Talk about writer's block and so much going through my mind.
Anyhow...just found out from my wonderful publisher, Lynda, at Guardian Angel Publishing, that the following books are new releases. Please check them out so you can see what a wonderfully group of talented folks I have the honor of being associated with.
Back to work. Cheers and blessings...

Can't believe April is rounding the corner and heading toward May.
I got some exciting mail today...my Certificate of Registration from the Copyright Office came in! What a surprise that was, as I was informed it could take up to eighteen (18) months to get my copyright on "Tiny Angel"! I guess someone in Washington is doing their job! Wahoo!!!
Just spent four wonderful days with cousins Lorraine and Randy, and what fun we had. Ate out every day, went shopping and to museums and just talked, talked, talked. Art and I are so very fortunate to have these special family members in our lives and we hated to see them leave, but we treasured every minute together.
Now I have no excuse to keep me from my writing and need to get motivated to do some more work on my newest book as well as my reviews. If anyone has any suggestions for motivation, I'm ready, willing and able to accept them!

This Easter season I want to wish all my dear friends and colleagues a very happy and healthy holiday. Whereas Easter and Spring denotes rebirth, let this season bless us all with a new beginning...that of love and compassion for our fellow man as well as acceptance of our faults and those of others. I am so very fortunate to have many dear friends, and I want to thank all of you who have supported me over the past two years with love, acceptance and understanding.
May peace and joy always be with you.
