People are always complimenting where we live, and they say how lucky we are. Well, while it is a great place, there are times when I don't feel so lucky.
You see, Steve works down the mountain in Colorado Springs as the GM of a big restaurant, and he's gone most of the time. He hates it because the hours are long, and I hate it because the hours are long, and I'm alone up here for 12-14 hours a day.
We live in one of the most beautiful places around, but it's just not the same without Steve.
This is why I'm working so hard right now and pushing the marketing hard. I want to get my husband up on the mountain with me!
I won't stop until I've succeeded!

"Set in modern times, a genie is released by the main character, Madison. Madison could use some luck, some joy, something new - her mother has passed away, her dad hasn't recovered financially, and neither have recovered emotionally. The entire story is woven around Madison's first wish, however, many adventurous stories unfold as she struggles to decide what the first precious wish should be. The building tension between Madison and Inas the Genie is just right for young adult readers and older. As a devoted fan of Pol McShane's Serpenteens series, I admire McShane's thought and research into his subject matter. Genie In a Bottle redefined my notions of genies - their origins, their captivity, their purpose, their turmoil involved with granting wishes, their wisdom, their careful …
Okay, so Genie in a Bottle has come out, and the paperback is all done! I'm so excited about this series, I can't even tell you.
I have high hopes that this one will be the "one" that will do it for me. I know every author out there is hoping for the same thing, but I really feel strongly about it, and I am trying harder than ever to make my efforts pay off.
There have been many times in the past when I just wanted to throw in the towel and give up on writing, but something just keeps me going. Perhaps Someone upstairs is pushing me to keep trying. And I don't even want success for myself (not entirely, anyway), but I want it for Steve. I want him to be able to quit working so damn hard and get up here on the mountain full time with me.
But I can't do this without your help. If everyone who reads this would simply purchase an eBook for $2.99 or the paperback for $9.97, it would make such a difference. Together we can do this!
