July 27, 2007 | Life is Good
For over a month I have been depressed. Nothing mattered. There was a huge, empty void that had replaced my soul and robbed me of my creativity. No matter what I did I could not move past this mess with my previous publisher. It got so bad I couldn’t stand the thought of getting dressed each morning or moving beyond hours of online Mah Jong.
Apparently, the powers that be decided Studs and my family, along with several close friends, had enough of my self-indulgence. Yesterday the world changed. The horrid cloak of emptiness was whisked away by some unknown force. THANK GOD!
What changed my attitude? Glad you asked. First, Aspen Mountain Press has contracted me for a new book to be released in September. Check out their site, it’s beautiful. I’ve also met my new editor Holly who has a fantastic sense of humor and knows her stuff. Then Shadow Rose Publishing requested a new book. They’re site is great, too. Finally, Eternal Press, out of Australia, requested synopses on a new series I’ve been toying with. Their site is another one to check out.
Last night Studs and I worked through a synopsis. He’s such a doll and my hero. Even though he complains, the man comes up with fantastic ideas to flesh out a story. In fact, Studs has helped with the last three books. I do love that man.
So world, be prepared. Sloane Taylor is back and this old gal ain’t lying down any more!
Now, I really have to get back to work. I’ll catch up with you next week. Until then…
