Keeping Busy in Fantasy Land

I thought I would drop by and let you know what I've been up to -- writing, of course. My new novel, Dark Persuasion, is in editing. I finished it a few weeks ago topping out at 83,000 words. If you'd like more information, please feel free to visit my blog at Dark Persuasion Novel and read about the book and background.

Also, I hope you enjoy my beautiful cover designed by Robin Ludwig Design and capturing the handsome model, Jimmy Thomas, who owns RomanceNovelCovers.com.

On top of having a blog, I also started a book storyboard on Pinterest. If you'd like to follow along with the visuals, you will find me there.

Needless to say, writing fills the emptiness in my life. It's a source of deep joy for me. Frankly, it's the only thing that gets me excited. It gives me purpose. It builds my self-esteem. We all need something to fill the void. The opportunity to fantasize and write love stories is a type of therapy for me. I don't write easy stories, though, because I've never had it easy when it came to love. I write about people in times past who are faced with challenges to overcome. Life is what it is--not always easy or sugar coated.

In any event, I hope you'll visit my new sites and come along and enjoy the ride. The book is scheduled for release this summer, and I'll keep you advised.

All my best to my single friends. I hope you are well. From the bottom of my heart, I encourage you to follow your dreams, even if it means you have to walk it alone in life. Each of you have gifts, desires, and dreams of your own. Until the next romance sparks in your life, turn your focus to the things that make you a wonderful and unique individual.

All my best,

Vicki

What an encouraging word at the end of your post..follow your dreams even if it means you're doing it alone.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Have a great day!

"I've dated since she died. I've put my heart out and had it broken. Boohoo, poor me right? It still hurts. It seems your never too old to make a fool of yourself.

Still, I would like to find someone to walk in the sand with. To share my life with."

Anyone else lonely out there?
