I Know I’ve Been Quiet Lately

But for extremely good cause!

I have been doing a lot of reading, so reviews will be popping up. I just completed my first HUGE interview and I have another coming up for July. So I’ll probably be posting links too the first within the next couple of days.

I also have been doing a lot of writing for stories to come out this year. I will definitely get Peace and Harmony out this Fall/Winter and will have ROSE 2 out this Winter. I was really hoping to get Magnitude out (and finish that series) but nope. I am still stalled on that one. I’m hoping by getting a new editor, new life will be breathed into it and I will once again be jazzed to finish Ali and Caden’s story.

I don’t have very many newsletter subscribers and haven’t really had much to say, so if you think you have signed up for nothing, please give me a bit more patience. I just don’t have anything to say and don’t want to spam you with nonsense.

So until I have a release date for you, check out the Peace series page on Facebook. I try to participate in OnelineWedenesday, which for us has turned into OneparagraphWednesday, lol. Example:

So if you like sugar with a bit of spice and everything nice, you’ll love Peace and Harmony. And it’s nice to know I still got it (spice wise).

Catching Up

I spent Sunday determined to clean up, reply to and organize all my email accounts. All you may ask? Well, yeah… I have one for my writing, one for this blog, a personal account, a junk mail account and now I need to check in on at least two more. I really need to get rid of some of these accounts now that I’m listed them wow.

Anyway, so Sunday was dedicated to email clean up and I did it! I got my writing account clean! So if you have sent any type of request to my gmail account, then you have heard from me. If you have sent anything to my @lisaawrites.com account, I will be with you shortly as I am dedicating a good chunk of Monday to get that done. Hope everyone has a fun and productive weekend and be on the look out for interviews and more reviews!

Maybe Too Much

I’m reading, writing and posting more than ever (on facebook and twitter) and I think I took on too much. I wanted to make 2017 the year of writing and so far I have accomplished that by working on a short story for an anthology and it’s going to be huge guys! Twenty-six authors all together writing about a fictional town in Montana. And I’m having a blast making new friends and really being involved in all aspects of it.

Working with Lust Bites Magazine has been so cool, but I’m trying to figure out how to get more engagement with the posts I make and having zero luck. Although, I did write an article that will appear in next month’s issue.

And I just looked at my email and I have new review requests and a couple of spotlight I need to do. I wanted to keep busy so my depression doesn’t get the best of me but I may have bitten off more than I can chew.

Oh! And I just thought about my newsletter. This is going to be a busy weekend.

Whew

So my first annual holiday giveaway is over and I am beat. It was so much fun putting it together and meeting new people, but it was a ton of work to do by myself. Now that is behind me, I am focusing again on my writing. I am making it my mission for 2017 that no matter what it is, I will write every single day. A sentence, a paragraph, a silly poem, anything.

I’ve also been doing some research for Felix for the second Rider’s book. I thought it was done, but it doesn’t feel right. I don’t want to release something that doesn’t feel finished to me. So I hope everyone waiting for Dangerous Turns will respect that and know that when I put something out there for people to buy, I want to make sure I did my very best.

Medication Fail

So I had started a new medication. It’s a popular one so I won’t name it, but a lot of people have had a lot of problems with it. The problem… well kinda… was that I DIDN’T have a problem with it. It was working. My pain was nearly non-existent, I had energy and I was making plans. PLANS people!

I was thinking about going back to school and going back to work. I was happy about this. Then I ran out of the prescription they gave me to ‘tide’ me over while the prior auth went through. And the real problem started. It’s been denied five times already.

Th withdraw was horrible. My doctor finally called me in and gave me samples but it looks like I will have to decrease the med until I am off of it for good. IT SUCKS. And so came the major depression and me feeling stupid for thinking I had a future.

I’m better now and maybe (someday) I’ll be able to do what I thought I would be able to do. I figured out the ending to Riders 2 today, now just end to write backwards to finish the middle. My oldest read it and all he said was ‘Wow’ (in a good way!). I hope readers say the same!

Past due for an update

Today is week two, day four of PT.

Last week ended in tears and we decided that we needed to space out the needling and let my muscles rest. So instead of using all three days, I’m spacing out my days and only two will be used for needling and even that will depend on how I’m feeling.

I also started Lyrica last night. Not sure how I’m feeling on it yet. Didn’t sleep well at all and after my first dose this morning, very spacey. Not good to figure out while driving.

My muscles are loosing up but also staying tight… I know that makes no sense… sometimes when I’m just about to go to sleep, they are nice and relaxed but the majority of the time, they are giving the Rockies a run for their money.

But I’m still holding in there.

Oh! I finally got my disability paperwork and am working on that bitch right now. I’m fuzzy on a few things so as I was hoping to mail it out today, it will need to have to go out tomorrow.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and the dad’s out there had a rocking Father’s day.

And no, still no wifi at home. Getting to McDonald’s to use there’s is being a pain especially now that I am getting more and more review requests and need to do cover work.

I hope you have enjoyed my blog and want to see it still going. I totally understand if you can’t but if you could help me anyway you can I would appreciate it.

Here is the link to my gofundme account:

Also here is the link to Riders of Sins Eternal  (has been getting GREAT reviews):

Word of mouth is wonderful promotion. And I love you guys no matter what!

Have a great week, will check in when I can! 💋

Not All It’s Cracked Up to Be

I’m debating on how to write my titles so bare with me…

Any who, I have been without work for one month and eleven days. The first few weeks was great. I got up with a renewed since of purpose, a proverbial weight had been lifted! No more stressing about how I was going to make it through the day with the pain or the fogginess or the fatigue.

But then then days began to run into each other. My meds stopped and new diagnoses were given.

Today, I tried writing and cleaned up a few paragraphs. Thought about taking a walk, which reminded me of the twinge in my foot and its the same twinge I had when what turned out to be a massive cyst right at the joint.

Dear lord, no. Not now.

We need another car. I need to have the option of leaving my apartment. If I won’t be able to work, I’ll need to find another outlet besides my writing.

And sweet baby Jesus my phone just scared the hell out of me by randomly playing a station it thought I would like lol

Dear lord.

Anyway, I’m lonely, bored and need something else to do besides write at home and rewatch Castle episodes (and don’t get me started on Beckett leaving after this season).

So for my friend’s in Internetland that stay home, what do you do?
