Holding Onto Hope

Wow, just got a two star review today on my novel Blood & Magic which was to say very soul-crushing. Writing is my dream and I really want my Magic Series to continue. So please, please, if you enjoy my novel and just haven't gotten around to reviewing it yet - do so here: Review!. It takes my over-all rating down from four and a half stars down to four which is really crushing. I'm upset. Was working on some writing, but now I think I need to step away from the computer and remind myself to breathe.

I know my book wasn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, but people are truly cruel and scathing sometimes. It's so good to know that there are many people whose writing, art, or music I shouldn't support in the future. I won't harm their careers the way they're attempting to harm mine, but neither will I support them.

I'm going to keep on writing and keep on living my dream. But right now I think it's time for me to step away and go outside and enjoy some sunshine while it's here and breathe. I really want you to see the whole of the Magic Series. So please help me keep it alive by giving reviews, prayers, or some positive mojo because I could use all three of those things right now.

My Latest Interview & A Request

I'm not sure if any of you have read this yet as FB has a great tenacity to hide the things which are important for my followers to see. But here's my latest interview I gave, six days ago: Interview.

I have no news about the Magic series yet to give you to. Nothing new, at least. I'm hoping that the third book will be out soon, and I'll let you know as soon as I know. I think what may help with that is if I get some more reviews for Blood & Magic and Dragons & Magic. So if you've read these books and enjoy them, please leave a review so my editors can know! A lot of people have told me or told my relatives to tell me they've enjoyed the books (which is awesome and gives me a confidence boost!). However, this doesn't let my publisher know how many people are interested in my tales. Please help my dream come true! I have seven books in this series, so I've still got a lot more to say and a lot more to show you. A lot more plot twists and characters yet to meet and get to know better.

Lastly, thank you! I know I ask for reviews a lot but they seriously help. Books with 50+ reviews are advertised on Amazon. How awesome would that be for me to reach an even greater audience? I go through an independent publisher for my Magic Series so this isn't something you can just walk up into your bookstore and buy. That being said, however, if you could ask your librarians to purchase this book - I'd appreciate that, too. My mother's friend works at a library and she's at least bought the first book in my series. So, please, please, every little bit helps. If you like my books and can recommend them to your friends - that's always appreciated, too! I'm really growing weary of my job and would love for writing to be my income so please help my dreams come true. Thank you!
