Once upon a time...


Stephanie started a new novel, and this novel, her third full-hearted attempt, finally granted her publishing dreams!!!

Okay, so that's what I'm hoping for anyway. It hasn't happened yet, but it will. I mean, something's gotta happen if you keep at it long enough, right? Life's not a fairytale (because if it was we'd all be published by now), but dreams do come true.

I'd like to believe it's the current state of industry that's making it so hard to break into the biz and not a sole reflection of my writing. At least that's what I'm telling myself. Focus on what you can control.

They say (philosophers and metaphysical folks) that life is about facing challenges and learning lessons. I'm not sure what lesson my trip down publishing lane is going to teach me, but I'm eager to find out.

I was so completely enthralled by all the sparkling I barely paid attention to anything else... I now know what it's like to be my dog when I've got a ball in my hand.

We can't wait to find out either, Stephanie - we're with you all the way! :-)

Yes, Bane, some days we're not so different from our furry counterparts. I have those moments too. Squirrel!

Thanks Shannon, you have no idea how much your kind words mean to me. Onward!
