A Busy Friday

I propose this day to be a writing day. I plan to sit and write in my novella and finish it. Not much more to get it done, maybe a few chapters, but enough to get me on the writing train. I have been taking more time to write and found that I've missed it.

With everything that's been going on it has been hard to just sit and write. Between trying to get the book on Amazon, social media, and making sure I mail who gets said book, there really hasn't been much time to spend on the one I'm working on now. 

On top of all that, I had to go and re-read Fable on Kindle and I found a few mistakes that we had to fix. We didn't have the book on Amazon for 24 hrs while we re-uploaded the changes. That was a little nerve racking, but it's back up now and moving right along. 

So, now a day of writing. I'm really looking forward to it. 

Since it is the start of Memorial Day weekend, I also want to take time out to remember our fallen soldiers and appreciate their sacrifices for us. They gave their lives so that we might have a better one. (I wish someone would remind congress!)

I try not to take for granted what these brave men and women have done for us and show my gratitude in my day to day life. Today also makes me think about my friends at the VFW who showed support for me and my writing. Some of them were troopers listening to me go on about my book. Thanks for putting up with me guys! I miss you!

This weekend will be filled with fun times for a lot of people. Camping, fishing, visiting family, and let's not forget BBQ. I look forward to spending time with my family. My husband and I are going to go see the new Star trek movie and go hiking. And then I have my grandkids for an over night Sunday. We will probably take them to the park and maybe swimming. Monday, we are going to Tiny Town. Fun times!

I love spending time with my baby's. They are so much fun and full of life. They bring out the kid in me. But once we settle down for the night, it's time to read. To go to the imaginary world of books. 

Which brings me back to writing mine. I love it when people read my book and get back to me on what they thought of it. I hope it's one that took them away for a few hours and helped them to dream of an imaginary life.

Have a great weekend everyone and don't forget, Shay West will be my guest next Tuesday. Until them be safe and enjoy a good book!

Love, Lisa


  1. It's a bank holiday here in the UK (long weekend) and we'll be doing similar things to you! Trying to find time to write among keeping the family happy. Have a great weekend!

    1. Chris, just wanted you to know I really enjoyed your book! I will do a review on it, i have it saved to do so on my Kindle. I haven't had any extra time lately with finally launching and getting everything together for the launch party and the like. Plus, no to mention how crazy it was actually getting it on Amazon! Whew, i'm glad that's over!

      Your book kind of blew me away. It reminded me of when I lived in Cleveland and the kinds of people there. The bar scenes especially! It was a little weird for me, a strange feeling. It's kind of hard for me to explain, but the story was unusual, and not what I expected at all. Good job!

    2. Thanks Lisa - so glad you liked it. Any review is always appreciated as you know! Interesting to hear it reminded you of of people and places - I tried to make it something which had one foot in the real world and one foot out of it so I did base it on people and places I remember too. If you want to talk to me or like interview me on your blog about it I would be thrilled to do that too - maybe we could do a swap?

    3. Hey Chris, that sounds great! In fact I am in the middle of my setting up my blog tour. Would you like to be a part of it? And you can guest on mine as well. I am already doing a trade with another author and she will be on here next Tuesday. Email me and we will talk!

      Don't forget to grab a copy of my book. I would love to hear what you think too. I will write your review tomorrow! Thanks Again!

    4. That sounds great Lisa - I will email you some questions for an interview on my blog. And I'll add your book to my reading list, (though I must confess it's quite long at present).

    5. Great - I'll email you some questions for an interview on my blog (and add your book to my reading list,though I confess that's quite long at the moment)

  2. We had our long weekend last week, so my weekend will be as short as usual. :D

    1. To bad it can't be a long weekend every weekend lol! I hope you find a better job soon so you're happier!
