Sisters Being Sisters

Are you ready to be blessed!  Eighteen sisters, not by blood but through relationship and in solidarity, wrote to encourage, inspire and empower! We got together to combine our love for encouraging another sister and we collaboratively created a new book compilation project call, One Sister Away: Encouraging Words From One Sister to Another.

We wrote from the heart and in some cases poured out some of our innermost thoughts and feelings and we found ourselves healed by our own words though our goal from the start was to help heal another sister around us who was broken, discouraged and hurt.  We wanted women and children around the world to know that we are here to support, if not in person, then through our words in the book.

Checking out social media and television shows these days women are portray as catty, backstabbing, betrayers, snakes, turncoats, insecure, whoremongers, airheads, haters, and the list goes on and on.  We see them never getting along, disrespecting and degrading themselves and others to stay relevant or to make a living.  We’ve got to do better than that.  We are better than that.  Each person who agreed to be a part of the project did so without question.  They know that in order for us to survive, we have to do it together, holding on to one another, embracing each other as we rise and embracing each other when we fall, keeping the bond tight.  We know in reality, not everyone will get along all the time, but it’s our hope to shed as much light on the positive women can do just as much as the negative is being shown.

This book project consisting of children and women from all walks of life, not professional writers, but those with a desire to reach out and bless another sister are excited about the possibility that we can make a difference.  We want to show that when we rise, we all rise, when we fall, we all fall, so which do we want to do together.  We Rise!!

Join us and check out our new release One Sister Away: Encouraging Words From One Sister to Another. Found in the pages of this book is pain turned into power, confusion turned into forgiveness and poetry that will take your mind away from the stresses in today’s world. Support our effort as we show how women can come together and birth something positive!

Girl Power!

No Time For Sleeping; There’s too much to do!

I’ve spent most of my weekend in doors writing almost non-stop. You have to get it in when the inspiration to do so sets in and what did I accomplish? I finished Twelve Bachelors For Sale and Love at Last, the last two books in the Bachelor series that started with Bachelor Not For Sale. I also finished the Electrician, book 5 in the Amorous Occupations series and I edited Xavier’s Plan and Spence’s Challenge, book 1 and 2 of the McIntyres series which I wrote over a year ago and never picked up again until this month, now that I’m finally ready to set them free (these two will come out together in the same book).

As if that wasn’t enough for me, I did additional editing to Heartthrob, an upcoming release I wrote this summer while on vacation, worked on the re-design and overhaul of the Sisters About Making Moves website (coming January 2015 along with a launch party!) and worked on my idea board for my new YouTube channel, “SAMM”, which stands for Sisters About Making Moves. With this channel, I’m looking forward to interviewing and spotlighting women making moves in the community who encourage, empower and inspire. Feel free to subscribe to my channel and look out for the first posting coming later this month at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYd8kCk7eqYFAZp0sEf_0ag. I am so ready to put this new HD video camera to use.

Now it’s Monday, my day off from the office and I look forward to getting a lot more done populating my Pinterest, uploading my books to iTunes and Google+ and working on idea boards for lots of traveling to market and promote my publishing company and my books in 2015. Its time to travel to get more of the word out and to take this game to the next level! Always looking up and pressing forward, never giving up and certainly not giving in! Today and tomorrow are filled with too many opportunities to not go after them. Let me just say, I am thankful for my full-time job that gives me the flexibility with my work schedule to have time to do me and still give them 110%. I’m 26 years in with the Federal Government and I’m still loving it! Happy for this Monday off and after being up all night, not wanting to sleep on the many ideas I have, i’m about to shut it all down and finally get some sleep.

Thankful for my family who don’t count it robbery on days when I need to shelter in place while the ideas are flowing. Their patience and understanding keeps me going! Have a great Monday all and i’ll see you at the top!

I have lots more books to write and more ideas to make happen.  It’s my time and I’m loving the journey.
