Hello, dear readers! Are you in the path of the eclipse? Did you buy the special glasses? I am sort of in the path and bought glasses . . . however they are currently with my kids at school so personally I am screwed. But that's okay! I am going to take pictures of it through my phone whilst wearing cheap plastic UV shades and a brimmed hat. Hopefully my eyes will make it out safe after all of this. Kind of like being able to see things.
For the occasion, my darling girl made a video. She's into editing and does a pretty darn good job at it, actually, I think does a GREAT job. I hope you like it, and, Happy Eclipse 2017!
B is for Bravery. Taking that first step toward writing a book, toward saying something different, toward releasing thoughts and feelings you never thought you'd have the guts to release before. Have faith that your ideas are good enough to write down. Write first, think later. First draft: Bad. Second draft: Better. Draft 1,000,000: Great. You have to be brave to believe in your dreams. You have to be brave to actually think someone else might love your stuff. Never assume it's not good enough. Don't pre-judge. Let other people do the judging. Always have faith that whatever you create will shine one day. So, next time you have an idea, pretend there's an invisible cape on your back—the kind Superheroes wear. And then just write.
Update—I still need readers, so if you enjoy time-travel romance with a bit of ghostly action, please let me know via the email below!
Pretty soon I'll have ARCs (advanced reading copies) for The Time Seekers, and so I am officially putting out an invitation for readers. You get a free ebook from me and I (hopefully) get a review from you.
Any takers? Email me at amysaia79(at)gmail.com if interested.
Many thanks, and Happy Labor Day! I'm going to get some reading done and enjoy this cooler weather we're having. Oh, and I'm also way into Big Brother. It's the only reality show I watch. What are your plans for the day?
