I wrote a piece the other day all about how awful my life is going. Thankfully for you I was without internet at the time, so you have been spared. In truth I knew even as I was writing it, that I probably wouldn’t post it. After all, sometimes you need to vent, but most times no one really wants to hear it. I know I certainly tire of all of the negativity on Facebook.

At the same time I also tire of all the cute sayings and posts that indicate your struggles make you stronger. I’m sure there is a tiny truth for someone in all of it, but sometimes hard times are just hard. Nothing great comes out of it.

I am extremely grateful that I got to spend this summer with my 17 year old as she prepared to go off to college. I’m even more grateful that just 2 weeks into it, she has called me today to say she’s having fun. Fingers crossed, she’ll continue to enjoy it and that makes me happy.

Does it pay my bills though? Oh hell no! Does it make it all worthwhile? I’m undecided. Yes, I would do it all again just to get that call, but enough already. Can things please improve now? I have things I want to do, not to mention a 15 year old who is suddenly considering college for the first time in her life. The money Gods need to seriously send me some financial help. Books need to sell, and I need to find solutions to this ongoing mess.

I realize I am not the only one with this issue however, so I will stop ranting and simply, and humbly request you purchase my latest novel,  Hanging From the High Wire, and/or share it with someone else. 5 It will cost you less than a cup of coffee and entertain you much longer!

    There have been times when I’ve been saved from embarrassment or humiliation by a malfunctioning internet. Sometimes it’s better to keep our ills to ourselves, but sometimes it helps to share and get reassurance from our readers.

    Hope the months ahead hold great things for you.
