Launch Week BONUSES for the DELTA NORTH TEAM series opener are here! PREORDER NOW!

Month: March 2021

There was CAKE.

Okay, let’s be compledely honest (not a typo). There still is CAKE.

Sanity took over on the weekend, AFTER the steak, the wine, and the lovely, weirdo, rainbow cake. My BFF and I had MORE cake to savour (and plough through), and I decided to go with waiting. Can y’all believe? Delicious, fudge, chocolate cake, and I chose to wait.

(Yeah. Somewhere, the universe split. There was a tear in the fabric of time. Faeries and dragons and goblins went…what the hell? No one believed it, no one at all….)

So, yeah. Not a common occurrence. It’s still in the fridge, waiting for me. Tonight, maybe?

What might have played into it too was that I bought some artisan bread in the early afternoon, and I had a third of THAT small loaf, with fresh butter from the health store. (You know, that real, ‘grass fed moos’ butter? Yeah. That.) I thoroughly enjoyed that too – all its cranberry, pumpkin seed, crusty no preservative or chemical goodness – and it kept me going the rest of the day. *sighs*

Were a good day. A good weekend.

I also threw up 2 preorders last night, for the newly written first TWO books in my rebranded series (more on that coming).

Right now, let’s circle back to the critical facts that must still be dealt with…and savoured…

Fun weekend.

And there still

IS

CAKE.

*damn that free-flowing poetry form! This is narrative, you!*

Until next time…

My Lovely. Are you waiting for me?? Quivering for me? (Okay, that’s enough. There’s enough smexy in my books. This is CAKE, Susan. Remember?

Strong Men…and Women.

I write strong men, and strong women. They have things to overcome, it’s true. It could be external things, huge obstacles. Currently, it’s the soldiers of Delta North, and the strong men of Refuge Bay.

They also, always, have internal things to overcome, too. And those? are the hardest. And…the trickiest. Because often? Those things crouch, hidden, in the shadows of their minds, desperately seeking to avoid detection. Couched, often, as fine qualities, they really are things that disintegrate their dreams and shatter their lives. The characters end up living half-lives, if they’re lucky. Often, they live just a vague percentage of what they’re capable of, and the joy they could have becomes only a faint trickle.

Not a pretty picture. It’s true of the characters in the books we read, and it’s also true in real life. In all our lives.

As a person naturally drawn to the study and science of strength, resilience and the vast landscape of our mental power, my close friends all know that I’m an incorrigible, unstoppable student of strength and self-development, in addition to being a writer. Yeah.

I’m an info and high performance geek. 🙂

Every day finds me sucking in some knowledge on this topic. It could be a tidbit, a stray piece of info, or it could be (weekly, for sure, sometimes daily), a life-changing chunk of info. In the past, I called these ‘gold bricks’. (As in gifts of great value, things that are solid and stable, and give real worth.)

The goal…SUNSHINE!

I wanted to quickly share a tidbit with you, this morning, that resonated with me, and that I think is brilliant. It’s from Scott Britton’s YouTube channel. It’s from a video that’s currently up, called Creating Your Vision: Guided Exercise to Win in Your Mind. I’ve only listened to part of it, full disclosure. Here’s what caught my mind.

When you decide on a goal and are all fired up about it, you think of how great your future will be. This is uninformed optimism. Good one, right? (I’ve never heard of this term before. Chew it around a bit, in your mind.)

Then, when you start to implement your work toward achieving that goal, and it’s haaaaaaaaard, you come up against the reality of creating something new, and the work and obstacles that present, and that must be overcome. Now? You’re in informed pessimism.

Isn’t that brill?

That’s it for today, Friend. I didn’t finish the vid, though it’s queued up, for the punchline, when I get to it. I’ve got to get back to work, creating the stories my readers want. That possibly you too, wants! (As well, I have an appointment today, then the stash of dark breakfast chocolate has run out. Yeah. I need a dedicated,  breakfast-chocolate-stash-curator and replenisher, on staff. *looks in the mirror*) (*okay.  a different one. LOL!*)

It’s all a journey. Come with me!

 

I’m in Trouble.

Have you ever had a serious addiction to something that won’t leave you alone? That keeps pushing in on your daily schedule, demanding to be met?

Well, here’s my latest one. I seem to have awakened a dragon lately, in me.

I seem to want Tacobell’s MEXIMELT…every day. And now…I want it for breakfast!

Have you ever had a meximelt? A soft flour taco, delicious seasoned beef, cheese, and I think? salsa. Some type of a slight vinegary flavour. Yes, tomatoes. Oh…my. It’s soooo good, all melted together. Oh, my (once again.) (*waves to Dorothy*)

I will prevail, I know. Indulging this is not in the daily budget. Nor in the caloric budget either!

Plans a trip to grocery store for ground beef, seasoning, and a few other fixin’s….

What are your SPECIAL addictions?
