Three Children and a Release

It’s been a while since I published a personal post. With the ongoing hoopla of publishing both my second and third book this last month, I’ve been busy. However, I come bearing interesting…also mildly hilarious anecdotes of incredible–not–events that took place while writing/editing/formatting/publishing/feeding my coffee addiction with three children to contend with the entire process.

It’s no small mystery that children make things phenomenally more difficult; sometimes even prolonging processes that would take someone hours to instead take days to finish in light of demon children stalking the corners, blocking hallways, entering very interesting sentences that may or may not have made it into my final manuscript, and destroying the home you had rushed to clean so you could focus all your sole efforts on writing.

My eldest, a daughter I refer to as Diva, was the forefront enemy the last month. Her indisputable power over the two younger ones, Mr. Sensitive and Mr. Testosterone, is one of the many, many, many reasons my publishing process was not all sunshine, unicorns, and billowing glitter.

Yesterday, a day that will live on in my memory, was one such case where three against one is never a fair fight. It was the day before release, a day that would have any normal author jumping enthusiastically in their overused armchair/swivel chair/old school couch. I had managed another few edits–a manuscript is never perfect–and I was taking a small break from the process.

Diva had, in the time I had been away mentally, stolen an entire bag’s worth of candies and hidden them in her room. Therefore, yes, my children were very much drunk on candy. And the rest of the day served as a mad battle with candy-drugged two-four-six-year-olds, a potty that saw a little too much toddler action, and a floor that was mildly glistening with liquids that could be possibly categorized as a ‘bio-hazard.’

Today, I have my husband home for Victor’s release, and I couldn’t be more thankful. They are now his problem. I love my husband; I love my sanity more. So happy release day to me! Make sure to check out Victor and grab your copy of Awakening while it’s still free!

I'm a simple woman, living in the modern world and desperately looking for my next adventure away from it. I recently debuted my series, Promiscus Guardians, and am hoping to blog those experiences through here as I go along. There's a lot of laughter to be sure!

    1. Omgosh, you’re so freakin’ sweet! I’m not that great, but it feels amazing to have something that others enjoy. To be able to offer them a bit of release while getting my own selfish release from it lol. And thank you again. Without you guys supporting me, I wouldn’t be half as motivated! You’re amazing, too, let’s not forget.
