Because I'm a writer and way overthink things, I tend to make a lot of correlations between my garden and writing, and one of the biggest lessons I've learned is timing is everything. If I went down south right now, I'm sure I'd see lots of gardens in full bloom while mine is just a pile of dirt with some seeds buried in it. And that's okay. It's not time for mine yet. That's why we shouldn't compare our gardens (books) to other people's. We should just enjoy theirs while we wait for ours to bloom.
How is your garden going?
I've just read a wonderful review of Blackbird, posted by Randi Lee, Thank you so much Randi for your review, I'm so glad you liked it. Read Randi's review here

Before, whenever I released a book, my husband and I would go away for the weekend, or out to dinner to celebrate, but this, this bringing other people into it, was new.
Now I know a lot of writers are introverted people, but I'm not. I'm actually very comfortable in social type settings--but my books are different--they're too close, too important to me. It was actually a major step of faith to send out the invitations. It's one thing to have strangers I'm never going to see read my book, something completely different having my friends reading it, having them know what's going on inside this messed-up head of mine.
Do any of you have this same hang-up? Ever had a release party?
Line up for this week:
I'm going to do things different around here. I've found that I'm posting three times a week, and that's great, but it doesn't give me much time to visit all of you, and that's not the friend I want to be. So from now on, I'll only be posting twice a week so I can use that extra time to visit all of you. This week my next post will be on Friday.
See you then,
