It's Not Forever

Build on your past successes, be grateful for what you have, and know that this, too, shall pass. It's only for the now. Whatever we're facing, it's not forever ~ Dave Pelzer

Can you believe it's August already?  Where has the time gone? 

I love the month of August.  This time of year (August, September) is like a renewal for me.  I've started new jobs, new careers, and some milestone moments in my life during this time.

When I was growing up, my dad was a teacher, so this time of year really did feel more like new year for all of us, more than January ever did.  Now, when August rolls around, I get energized because I know that the end of year is right around the corner.

I set out to complete three goals this year:

1. Get #APTCTO published.
2. Prepare Disappear With Me for submission.
3. Complete the first draft of The Higher Law.

So far I have accomplished 1, and nearly done with 2.  I have gotten started on The Higher Law, but only about ten percent done.

So, as August rolls around this year, I am ready to get this third manuscript written.

How is your year going?  What are your plans for the last five months of the year?


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?
