It’s a quiet Monday here in Southwest Florida. I’m sitting on my lanai enjoying a balmy, but cool breeze along with a glass of wine. As I sit here I can’t help but think of the last few days and where I am today.
Last week I was doing the final edits on my new novel, “The Mind of a Heart,” then approving the manuscript and cover. In less than 3 days the process was done and now I wait until it’s ready to be released to the public for purchase.
My heart is full. It’s full of love, gratitude and belief that with hard work a dream can turn into a reality. This novel is truly my baby and today I’m excited that she’s been born and is getting ready to meet the world.
I wrote this novel many years ago and it wasn’t until over a year ago that I decided to rewrite it and bring it to life. Some things take time in life and this book was one of them. It wasn’t meant to be published years ago, it was meant to be published now.
This afternoon I was in awe of what I accomplished last week and sat staring at this beautiful book that I wrote. “She” waited a long time to come to life and there she is, a life of her own, one that I hope that you’ll love as much as I loved writing it.
If there’s one thing that I’ve learned in my life it’s this: You don’t need to write a novel, have a successful business or make a million dollars.
Your life is a spectacular gift that you were given, no matter what it hands you or where it takes you.
Your life is important, your life matters and your life makes this world a better place.
And this I know to be true because your life is important to me.
I am so excited and grateful to announce that my new novel, “The Mind of a Heart” is in the publication process and will be released soon! I’m also incredibly grateful to my very dear friend, Bill Scannell, for designing the cover for this book! He had the vision of this cover long before I did and am so thankful for his talent, hard work and dedication to my book!
Here’s a look at what the book is about:
~ “The Mind Of A Heart” is the story of a married woman who finds herself back in touch with her old high school sweetheart. After several months of emailing each other they meet in person and their love affair begins.
As the affair continues, she can’t help but remember the memories of the innocence of two 17 year olds falling in love at the Jersey Shore and planning a future together.
When her husband loses his job and is hired by another company, she becomes entangled in a web of lies and deceit because her husband’s new boss is her high school sweetheart.
A life that she simply “existed” in was about to change and it was about to change forever .~
Thank you to all of you who have supported me throughout my writing career and I hope that you will enjoy this novel as much as I enjoyed writing it.
I will let you know when the official launch date is!
I think I’ve had the best day that I’ve had in quite some time, at least as a writer, that is! I finally finished the edits on my new novel, “The Mind of a Heart.” This sweet story of mine has been on hold for quite some time and I sat for hours today to finish the last pieces of it and I couldn’t be more excited.
There have been a few roadblocks along my way of publishing this book. I had my move to Delaware, then to Florida followed by Hurricane Ian, along with a few minor illnesses along the way, but as I always say and believe, “everything happens as it should, when it should and how it should.”
I hope you’ll follow me on my journey as “The Mind of A Heart” gets ready to turn into a reality!
Dreams do come true with patience, faith and in believing that they will.
Are you still dreaming? Do you allow yourself to have those days of sitting alone, letting your mind wander and thinking of how different you’d like your life to be?
Dreams are important. YOUR dreams are important because I believe that dreams can come true.
Don’t ever stop dreaming, no matter what your life is like right now. Dreams give us hope, they give us strength to turn them into a reality, and they allow us to find the faith we need to believe that they come true.
Tonight is a full moon. It’s a time for new beginnings, letting go of what doesn’t serve you and for putting your dreams out there, far into the Universe!
Sit under the full moon tonight and send your dreams out there, as far as you can throw them.
They will be noticed. They will be heard. They will be possible.
Have you ever felt that way? I know that I have. I get tired of the obstacles that I have to get around, the hurdles that I have to jump over and the situations that I have to deal with. Life hands us some crazy situations yet I’m not alone on this one. I know that you’ve felt the same way once or twice in your life as well.
Moving to Florida was a difficult transition for me, even though I made the move for the right reasons: to be closer to my parents. It’s been almost 7 months and I still feel as though I’m searching for that feeling of “home.” There are days that I miss my Jersey Shore, the surf, the sand and the ocean. I miss my friends back home and I miss Asbury Park.
But this is where I live now.
And I’m trying to make it “home.”
Life has been a bit tougher than I thought it would be but I’m plugging away at it, trying to find my balance and trying to get my “groove” back. I’m trying to find my place and where I fit in. It’s a process and I’m willing to do what it takes to get to that “happy place.”
Today I had a day in which I thought to myself “I don’t need easy, I just need not so hard.” And I’m okay with that. It’s just for today, not forever, and for each day that I open my eyes to face another day in my life, I’m grateful
Life has never been easy for me, but that’s what makes me “me.” It’s what made me into the person that I am today, the one trying to make others feel better, to feel less alone, and to try and change this crazy world into a better place.
I can’t thank all of you enough for your support, for following me, and for your beautiful words of encouragement.
We’re all in this together and together we can make a difference.
You’ve got this and I have to believe that I do, too!
