Saw this on Pinterest  and had to laugh. This is so me. I am always in the middle of many books while at the same time trying to write my own. 

I took another small break from blogging.  Been working and thinking about my novel. Although it may seem to be taking longer than I had originally planned, there is no rush. I want to get it right. The first draft being finished, I want to make sure I haven’t left out anything important or left in anything that doesn’t need to be there. 

Lately,  I have read some free books I picked up along the way. Most are good stories. The biggest problem I have found is that the editing is terrible. I’m not sure if it was a rush to get it uploaded or just a lack of attention to detail. Maybe not the author’s fault at all. It has awoken me to the possibility of hiring an editor when I am done writing. 

It is an expensive endeavor as I’ve checked into it already but might be worth the time. At any rate, food for thought there.

I will be back again soon. I have downloaded a piece of my book, a short piece that I will post soon. I need to clean it up a bit first. 

As always, thanks for reading. 

Hello. I am the author of the Historical Fiction novel called Mamie Garrison. It is a tale of slavery, abolition, romance and history, set in the years just prior to the Civil War. It is available on Kindle for .99 and also in paperback. Mamie Garrison has a dual storyline. The present day story involves Bella and Andrew finding Mamie's journals. Their story includes romance and paranormal aspects. Mamie's story follows her adventures as an abolitionist through her journals. There are some mysteries as well as an unusual background in Mamie's life. I have completed book two in my series. Colin Garrison, Book 2 of The Garrisons is available at Please see my Colin Garrison page under the menu option for a small sample of this new book. The third and final book in the series, Emily Garrison is now available. Please see above for link. I am 62 with one adult child and one grandchild. I have always enjoyed the written word and have been a voracious reader from my early youth. I am inspired by many authors in the historical fiction genre. I am also a lover of Russian literature, particularly Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. I find great inspiration for creating characters by looking at the ones these two authors have created. There is such a depth to them. I have written for most of my life in one form or another. I have dabbled in poetry and songwriting, and have more started novels than finished ones. In my free time, I like reading, history and travel. I am interested in genealogy and working on my family tree. I live in St Louis.
