Writing and Business Goals for June 2018

June 2018 Goals

Hello everyone!

Though I freely admit the time I took away from blogging, social media, and writing was unquestionably needed to put myself back in balance, I am truly happy to have returned and ready for June goal setting.

Since the publishing company I used went out of business (please see prior post for explanation), my main focus for June is completing everything necessary to get Have Spirit Will Travel back on Amazon by the end of this year.

June Goals:

  1. Complete all front and back matter for the new edition of Have Spirit Will Travel
  2. Write a short story about Skyler’s youth, which will be free to everyone who purchases book one
  3. Edit the first chapter of book two to be included as a teaser in book one
  4. Write chapter 6 of book two
  5. Name book two
  6. Read three books

If you set your own goals, I’d love to know what they are.

Happy June!



New Edition Coming Soon


New Edition Available

 If you have recently searched for my book with no success, it is because the company I worked with to publish Have Spirit Will Travel has gone out of business, causing it to be temporarily unavailable. I have taken this time to re-work both the front and back end edits, as well as create freebies for you lovely readers via links directly from the book. I plan to have it updated and back on sale no later than Dec. 31, 2018.

In addition, in case you’ve noticed my absence over the past few months (gasp!),  I want to assure  you that I will return to this blog in full force on June 1, 2018. Please join me as I share my (sometimes overly optimistic) monthly goals, author quotes and inspiration, delightfully silly shit, peeks into my sweet country life, and much more.

Thank you for your patience and support!


Happy National Black Cat Appreciation Day


Henri, keeper of my heart

In honor of National Black Cat Appreciation Day, I want to introduce my favorite black cat in the world, Le Monsieur Henri, aka Mr. Fuzzy Face, who is also my muse for Skyler Sullivan’s black cat/familiar, Mordecai, in my book, Have Spirit Will Travel .


Chillin’ in the afternoon

In 2009, Hubby Extraordinaire found this precious little love abandoned at a job site and brought him home to join our family. He was a blessings from the start.


My new momma already loves me

He grew to have the soul of a warrior. We live in the country and one time when Henri, along with our pittie mix, Lilly, were both outside, they saw an armadillo sniffing around the yard. Henri and Lilly went at it from different angles, scared the poor thing to death, (did you know armadillos can jump 3 – 4 feet high? No shit!) and chased it out of the yard.



My boy is extremely warm hearted. Three years ago a tiny kitten showed up at our house and was hiding underneath an old building. Henri coaxed it out, and over to our porch. Not bad for a Tom cat, huh?


Hide and seek

And of course, he always enjoys hanging out with his buddy, Buster, the other half of the yin yang duo


It always pays to have friends


Does this shirt make my butt look big?

It pains me to know there are still people holding on to superstitions dating back to the 16th century when it comes to black cats. And because of that bias, these beautiful creatures are usually the last to be adopted in the shelters.

Please help spread awareness of how special these amazing felines are, and if you have room in your home, consider visiting your local shelter. You may just find you’ve been looking for a black cat all your life. The universe is funny that way.

Wishing many blessings come your way.
