Last week I told you I would have some exciting news to share with you this week. I’m going to hold off another week. Why? So I don’t jinx myself.
It’s no secret The Veiled Path to Destiny, the second book in my Veil Series, has taken me longer to write. I have second guessed my abilities to give this second book the words that adequately portray what I was seeing in my mind’s eye. Iauron and Daria deserved to have the second half of their story told well.
There had been a stretch of time where I thought, after this book is done, I’m done. Maybe I don’t have what it takes to be more than a one book author.
If truth be told, if it were not for the readers and my author friends who have been asking for The Veiled Path to Destiny, I think I would have chucked it. The doubt was STRONG. Thankfully, that thought path didn’t last long. I have refound faith in my ability to spin a tale and do it justice, and this story will be out soon.
It’s been a struggle, but then most things worthwhile are. The trick is to not give into the urge to give up, because nothing is ever accomplished if you don’t push through the tough times.
I have a story to finish, and when I say…this story is for you…I sincerely mean it. You have been my inspiration.
Until next week…Happy Reading!

I hope by this time next week to be able to give you a forecasted release date for The Veiled Path to Destiny~The Veil Book 2. Keep your fingers and toes crossed, and if you have any influence with the gods and goddesses of writers, if you could put in a good word for me, that would be totally awesome!
In the meantime…I’m off to get words on the page and this story that much closer to the magic words….”The End”.
Until next week….Happy Reading!
