Sometimes The Lazy Finish First

BIG NEWS: I am now a USA Today Best Selling Author

Recently, there's been a growing trend of writers banding together to form a single book set, and by using the power of numbers, grow sales exponentially and maybe (just maybe) make the best seller's list.

I'm the first to admit, I didn't do a whole lot here.

My publisher did all the work, and I rode the coattails all the way to San Jose. I did some promoting on my own, but it wasn't close to the efforts the other authors put in.

It's still a win-win, though. For us authors, we get more exposure. In this world of noise, standing out in any way helps. For readers, they get a bunch of great books for little money.

I'm finally writing again, and that is a HUGE victory for me. All the stress, changes, and health issues triggered a deep depression that's killed my creative energy. Hitting the best seller's list has been just enough of a push to get me back into the writer's world.

And I've missed it so much.

So here's to staying on track...and allowing the words to flow.
