THE BALANCED LIFE NO. 6

1009952_10151834907161920_2018758238_n    I’m still working on balance.  Balance in my personal life, my physical life, and my artistic life.  Last week I had a wonderful experience; the publishing of The Apocalypse Sucks.  Publishing a book is almost like the birth of a child.  I have two kids and don’t think the labor for either one of them was a hard as writing is sometimes.  No, I don’t love my books more than my kids (you know I had to say that), but becoming a published author is still a dream come true.

I originally wrote the short story Bra Wars and it was e-published by Buzz Books USA.  Five more stories were then written to go with the first.  They were never published.  When I met Ron Fortier and Rob Davis of Airship 27 Productions at the OWFI conference last year, I thought maybe the six stories combined into a novel would lend themselves to a different market and I was off and running into the pulp fiction/graphic novel world.

I write other genres.  I have a mainstream suspense novel coming out this year with The Wild Rose Press called Secrets of Sandhill Island and a middle reader self-published for the Kindle titled Glome’s Valley, but I think I had more fun writing the pulp fiction than anything I have written so far.  If you know me, you already know my sense of humor is a little skewed.  I write children’s books all the while I am a BIG Steven King fan.  Sorry kids.  Hopefully, I can keep these ideas compartmentalized.

There are at least three novels sitting unfinished on my computer at all times and I hope to be able to write long past the time I end up in a nursing home.  It gives me great pleasure to share my crazy ideas with the world and I think my kids would approve of that.
