As with every morning upon hearing a child's voice I reach simultaneously for my glasses and cell phone to tell me what ungodly hour they've woken up. 5:02 a.m. flashes my phone. This is actually normal, anything earlier and I can hope to give an essential oil and/or sippy cup and go back to sleep. Under the time on my beloved IPhone I see that I received a message. S. L. Jennings wrote me back in regards to my earlier email asking her advice on self-publishing overseas. She suggests I talk to Calia Read, another amazing author who happens to be stationed at the same base in Germany I am. Yay!
After changing a diaper and getting breakfast for the gang I sit down with my coffee and laptop to check my email. One of my Beta's left me this:
Hi Brandi,More yay!! 2014 is starting out A-MAY-ZING! So what are my resolutions and goals for this year? I thought I would post them a) Because I need to get better at my social media voice #awkward and b) If it's out in the world I'm held accountable and have to do it. Here we are:
It's 3:04 am on New Years Day. I just finished "Fan Girl" and I can happily say I couldn't put it down. I'll send you more of a review after the holiday "#, but I just wanted to let you know I finished it and LOVED it! I want to trade places with Ali - and I want a hunk like Deklan! LOL!Happy Writing,
- Self-Publish Fan Girl, Baby Girl and Farm Girl on CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing.
- Lose at least twenty pounds. Everyone has weight loss resolutions and I'm no different. I have an image in my head of what Brandace Morrow- Author looks like and it's not Brandi- post four kids. Last last year (2012) I lost twenty pounds, and kept it off for a year. I'm going to do the dreaded thing, exercise.
- Take more family vacations. We know this will (better be) our last full year in Germany. I want to take the kids places, do things, before we leave. Having said that...
- Save save save save save, because when we leave here we aim to buy our first house. Fingers crossed for Alaska.
Now, to bring #1 to fruition I must get back to editing with my lovely assistant.
