Today I have some exciting news to announce! A sequel to my children's picture book The Pea in Peanut Butter is coming out! It will be published by Futureword and is in the works right now. The title is Inside the Magic of Words. This book will take Kailee on another magical journey but this time she will learn that reading is fun and can take you on all sorts of adventures. Stay tuned as I will announce a release date as soon as it becomes available.
Also, a halloween story of mine has been accepted by Guardian Angel Publishing titled Pumpkin Squash, but that's all I can tell you about it at this time.
This Saturday, February 23rd at 10:00am, I will be reading my book The Pea in Peanut Butter over a radio show called It's Story Time with J.D. Holiday. Tune in here if you'd like to listen. My story will be 2nd to be read so if you tune in around 10:10 you should be able to catch it.
Now for the bad news... I crashed and burned on my diet. I thought for sure if I posted it on my blog and promised to keep my readers updated that I would succeed, but unfortunately I was wrong! The last week I did it, all I got to eat were shakes and soup and when I got on the scale and gained half a pound, that was it. I think that diet could work for the right person, but for me it wasn't a diet that I could stick with long term so I've decided to try something else. At this point, I have no clue what that will be but I have to come up with something! About 5 years ago I made up my own diet and over 3 years, I'd lost 30 lbs. I basically ate very non-fat small lunches and then whatever I wanted to at night within reason. It took awhile to lose but I never felt deprived and was in the frame of mind to lose it slowly. I kept it off for about 2 years but gradually gained almost all of it back. It was easy to eat small lunches while I was working a full-time job but now that I'm not working, an apple just doesnt cut it at home! But I may just have to try it again.
Well that's it for me this week. Hope everyone has a great week and don't forget to write, write, write!
