Fighitng the fight

Well, Steve and I are chugging along.
This whole separation thing with his work has been taking its toll on us. Only a few more months, but it feels like years. But each day and week that goes by means we're that much closer to being done, and we'll be able to get back to a normal life.

I see him every four or five days. They are now times even more cherished, I guess. Which is a good thing. On the days when Steve's in Denver, I go to work, and then I come home and spend a few hours writing.
And each day passes, one after the other. Some are easier than others. But each day that does pass gets us closer to being done with this current challenge. Let's hope it's the last one for a while.
But on the plus side, I'm getting a lot of fucking work done.

A bit lonely

Well, Steve and I are in our second month of this separation. It's been pretty hard on us. Harder than we had hoped it would be.

I try and stay busy, but most times I end up idle, lost in thought. I've been trying to work on my new book. Yes, I repeatedly say I'm no longer going to write because it sucks. But I'm a writer, and I can't help myself.

But when my mood is so effected by Steve's absence, it's very hard not to convey that in the story and have to rewrite it all later.

I will continue to write because it's the only way I can one day have Steve home full time. It'll happen. I won't stop until it does.

But until that time, Steve will work in Denver until December, and I'll wait here on the mountain, writing away.
We'll get through this. We're tough. One day it'll all pay off.

Until then, here's a link to my website if you haven't been there for a bit, and another for my Amazon page. Have a look around. Thank you!

Never-ending challenges

We've had our fair share of challenges since moving to Colorado. More than once we've almost packed it in and cried, "Uncle!"

But we love our mountain, we love our cabin, and the life we could and will have here. So we keep fighting and we continue to overcome.

Steve will be managing a new restaurant down in Colorado Springs called Chuy's. That's great, since he had worked for them in Austin for many years and welcomed him back with open arms. However, until the new place opens, after the first of the year, Steve will be working in Denver.
He has made the commute daily for the last month. It began taking its toll quickly. The cost of gas alone on top of the hour and a half trip both ways.
Now, thankfully, he will be staying with my younger brother in Denver for the remaining months he has to work there. It's good because it helps with Steve's terrible commute, but we will only see each other on his days off.

Yet another challenge.

After almost twenty-seven years, Steve and I don't do very well separated from one another for too long. But we'll get through this just as we've gotten through all the other tests that have been thrown at us over the past three years.

I'll try to keep you up to date on my sanity level up here in the woods all alone.
Well, not alone. I have Brodee to watch over me.

Nothing new

Nothing new has been going on. Just working to try and survive. Steve’s been commuting to Denver every fucking day because he got a good job. But it’s only u til December when a new place opens down in the Springs. Until then, I’ll stress and worry about his safety.

I’m not working on a new book right now because I’ve lost all enthufor writing. The lack of reader support and reviews have taken their toll.

The end of another series

Well, it's here, the final installment of the Genie in a Bottle series-After the Wishes~Inas. It's always bittersweet when I finish a series of books. But with the Genie books, I felt a real connection. After hearing Christina Aguilara's song, and the flood gates opened, the storyline, characters, and books came almost too easily.

Little secret: After the Wishes~Inas almost didn't happen. The original series was supposed to be a trilogy, with only The First Wish, The Second Wish, and The Third Wish. I had planned on an entirely different ending than the one that ultimately came to be.

The final installment is told by the genie, Inas. It was extremely fun to write in his point of view, and I think added a whole new element to Madison and Inas's story.
