It has been a weird couple of months for me.
I have had the bothersome task of marketing my book, which I hate. I will say, it is paying off though.
I have had the excitement of impending grandmahood. It’s still a ways off but we heard the heartbeat for the first time yesterday. All 3 of us, me, my daughter and her fiancé all teared up. Well, my daughter actually lost it when she saw the baby moving around. ( I hope I’m not offending or upsetting anyone with this news. I know some have lost children or don’t get the whole baby thing. I understand. But it’s my blog and I’m excited, so you’ll have to read or leave. Lol)
No. Don’t leave. I’ll be going back soon to talking about writing and reading and such. It has been such a great time for us though, right now, so hang in there.
On the not so great side of things, I haven’t felt all that well. Besides the usual stuff, which I think I’ve mentioned previously, if not PM me, I’ll explain, my doctor changed a med and it made me really ill. So, I decided to switch myself back to my old med and I’m starting to feel like myself again. Thank goodness.
Ok. So, I liked this quote because you know how I am on the importance of reading. I’m as guilty as the next person of social media addiction but I try very hard to limit myself. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. I do love being quiet and alone though. Always have.
I will be more consistent with my posts in the future. Now that things are settling down, I plan to start putting my next book together. Creating scenes, etc… Won’t be done before the summer though.
Hope everyone is well. Teresa
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 Amazon.com/dp/B0759MYN81. 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.
