Joy on Every Level

I know for sure that I don't want to live a shut-down life--desensitized to feeling, seeing, and the possibility of experiencing joy on every level. I want every day to be a fresh starts on expanding what is possible ~ Oprah Winfrey

As I was writing Sunday's post, I realized I've been really focused on sharing my writing/publishing experiences lately. No wonder, I just published #APTCTO the beginning of this month.

So I thought I'd take today to remind new readers to the blog that my goal is that you find a universal message in my posts.  Whether you're in sales (direct or otherwise), trying to finish your degree, quitting smoking, whatever your dream goal may be, I hope you can apply what I've learned to your dream journey.

For example, when I quit smoking, the first week reminds me of the morning when #APTCTO was released.  After eleven years of smoking, I couldn't believe i had gone four days without a cigarette.  After those four days, I smoked over the weekend.  But when I started not smoking on Monday again, I had more confidence that I could do it again, since I had already done it once.  That's how I feel now.  I've published one novel, and have this renewed sense of determination to get Disappear With Me, my second novel, sent in to my editors.

If you're on a different dream journey, what are some of my lessons that you've applied? I'd love to hear!


Is it possible for two Civil War veterans to find their place in the world on the Kansas Prairie?
When the War Between the States ended in 1865 many Americans emerged from the turmoil energized by their possibilities for the future. Frank Greerson and Gregory Young were no different. After battling southern rebels and preserving the Union, the two men set out to battle the Kansas Prairie and build a life together. Frank yearned for his own farm, away from his family—even at the risk of alienating them. Gregory, an only child, returned home to claim his inheritance to help finance their adventure out west.

Between the difficult work of establishing a farm on the unforgiving Kansas prairie, and the additional obstacles provided by the weather, Native Americans and wild animals, will their love and loyalty be enough to sustain them through the hardships?
