Writer’s Block

Happy New Year to all my readers. After a holiday break I feel refreshed and you’ll see some increased activity at the Book Self. I’m halfway through a book and hope to have a review up shortly.

I have a long list of books to read and review. Authors from all over the world are contacting me about reading and reviewing their books. It’s such an honor.

2019 was an incredibly difficult year, and not just for me. ┬áLet’s visualize 2020 to be a year of healing, kindness, compassion, sensitivity, giving, empathy, peace, creativity, healing and courage. Together we are strong. Goodness in action is greater than evil.

Hello everyone. I hope everyone is doing well and reading good books. Other than a few simple posts at this blog, you probably won’t see any book reviews, author interviews, and publicity projects until after the new year. Like many of you I have a lot of irons in the fire and will be busy with the holidays.

A couple of months ago I applied for a job that totally had my name on it (and then some). Just found out I lost out the position to someone who doesn’t nearly have the education, talent, skills, and expertise I have. I keep telling myself it’s the company’s loss, but right now I’m feeling a mixture of anger and sadness.

Is it really August 1st? Has it really been two months since my father died? Talk about a cruel summer. Thank goodness for my support system, my dear friends for being there in my time in need.

This blog has also been a place of self-healing and good care. In the next few weeks look for some book reviews, a publicity piece, and interesting book related news.

I don’t often delve a lot on this blog when it comes to my personal life, just a few hints here and there regarding my off-line life. I’m a pretty private person, but you may have noticed a decrease in activity lately. Earlier this month my father died after a couple of years of declining health. So needless to say, I haven’t been in the mood to do a lot of writing. But books are a comfort so I’ve been doing a lot of reading and I hope to have some reviews up shortly.

Thanks for understanding and all of your support throughout the years. I truly treasure it.

We’re in the middle of May and like a lot of you, I’m busy, busy, busy. I’m caught up in a whirlwind of activities, both professionally and personally-I’ll spare you the gory details.

And when it comes to this blog? Don’t fret. I’m stirring a steaming pot of posts, which you’ll see shortly. Yay!

I want to thank everyone for their patience while I was on what turned out to be an extended break from my blog. After the craziness of the holiday season I got the worst cold and reading got put on the back burner.

But I’m on the mend and I have nice selection of books to read and review. I’m also going to post an interview with an up and coming writer.

Once again thanks for your patience. Hugs to you all.
