Hello Dear Readers.
I am sorry I have been very bad only posting on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Author.AmyJaneSandberg , But I am rectifying that this week, by back dating and adding older posts here with more details then I have on Face book. So When I post this they will be already added. ^_^
For the past few weeks I have been working on my books.
I was shocked when someone bought 6 books at once. When I asked her why; She told me she wanted to share them. She sent me this picture today after she received them. She is awesome! I edied the picture to protect her privacy. I’m still speechless.
My phone is giving me lots of issues. It keeps saying that I need an update but when I accept it does nothing. It keeps going silent and out of range a lot more than ever! I am not receiving 3/4 of my calls. Sigh. With that and my net issues I wonder if there’s a good reason or it is playing with me. I really miss talking to you regularly. People are extremely important to me. And I make time for you when I can. Friendship is a 2 way street. I am sorry I can’t be around like I want to. Life has added more to keep me busy as well. Please do- Text me, skype me, or fb message me; and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible whenever you want me. There’s a guy who at Best buy who may be able to fix it I just have to make time to go.
♥ Love ya,
Amy Jane Sandberg
Hello Dear Friends,
Wow what a crazy year it has been…. I can not believe all that has happened this year… This year seems like it was several years all wrapped up into one.. I forget what all I’ve written about… Last year I was angry and upset, I was lost and confused, I was drained and empty feeling, and it lasted up till November this year. I had a lot of falling outs with people and a lot of misunderstandings. I learned I suck at explaining things in words. I should stick to writing.. lol.. Even then is hard to express myself. I am happy now. I gave up trying to make things perfect, now I am just enjoying what life dishes out. What God has for me… That is really the best way to go… Falling into God’s will helped me fall back into my dreams and my joy. My passion is to help people via my written work and by me being me. That makes me happy…
I lost a lot this year but I gained so much in return. For the first time in many years I’m happy with who I am… I keep telling you: Only you can make yourself happy. And that’s mostly true.. If you lean to let go of all the hurt and stress you hold inside, and Let God in, is one way. Another is you can choose to be happy, choose to look for the good in every bad situation. Only you know what is holding you back and keeping you down…. Also having that someone who has faith in you and is constantly encouraging you and helping you makes a huge difference. I don’t know what I’d do without those awesome people in my life…
I may wear my heart on my sleeve, but its because I want you all to feel loved. There are so many different kinds of Love…. And I love you all. My heart was made big just so I could love you all. 😛 Some of you settle for just Like… Being liked is good enough… But you are better than that. You deserve to be loved… No one is perfect… We all mess up… That doesn’t mean we don’t deserve love….
I don’t know what I was planing on saying, I don’t know if anyone even reads this… Take this next year with a seed of hope.. Don’t let last year get you down. Tomorrow is a new day -wait better yet- a New Year!! So —- Make new choices… Make good changes to your life that will make you happier.. Don’t wait till midnight to do so. Do it tonight. Every one is suffering in one way or another, everyone has issues, some worse then yours believe it or not.. You are blessed and lucky to have what you do… If I could ask you to do only one thing and you would’ I’d ask you to let you wall down and let people in… We are made to need people… So many complain about not finding love…. But if you won’t let your walls down to let anyone in then it will never happen… I don’t just mean your one true love, it counts for friends and family love too… If you stay guarded, no one can get close… And you will keep staying empty and lonely.
Don’t Give up on your dreams, fight for them, I don’t believe anything worth doing or reaching comes easy….. If only it was…. Then life would be boring?? :p
Thanks for all the great memories this year, and the adventures God….. I thank you for tomorrow and t new year you are giving us… I pray it brings Joy, closure, togetherness, and fulfillment like never before!!!!
My biggest accomplishment this year was getting closer to God and publishing my personal short story

I’m back home and off to work.
My sisters wedding was beautiful. I was very happy to have spent time with all the family. It was a small but wonderful wedding, one of the best I have been to! Plus it was a mini family reunion! She is so blessed so many people wanted to be there for her joyous day. The only thing missing were my brothers and aunt Christine. I still fel sad that Shane is now in heaven. But I know he is in a better place and I will see him again one day. I just hope he was able to look down and see her day.. Funny, I always though that line was a little cheesy, never thought it was possible. I mean I know they are always wit us.. Bit to say that myself… I feel the dept of those words… Pardon me while I go cry…
My Sister Amelia and I have come a long way in our relationship. I realized we both were a bit envious of each-other.. Silly how envy can tear people apart. I am so happy for her, beyond words. I think both my sisters are blessed with wonderful husbands! Now it’s my turn.. (I know, when the time I right I will have mine. I am not in a hurry!) My nephew was a doll!! I adore him… I miss him tons. I can’t wait till I see them next time!
I’m sorry I meant to keep this short. Last thing….
My files are a mess on the computer and in hard copies, andmy net is limited…. Thank God I have my computer back tho. I can’t wait to finish some of these books… I am so grateful that have the time and help when I need it. I have a bad habit of jumping in headfirst and catching up latter… Now her I am back to work and regretting my quick filing system. I have a lot of organizing, updating, formatting rearranging and lots of writing to do. Where is that personal assistant I’ve been meaning to find… lol… I would love to have an office to go to: with a huge desk, multiple display monitors, several computers, and a staff to help me. Maybe one day? Till then I have a apt, with a small office, 2 filing cabinets full of research and hard copies print0uts of my work, a Great Dane who is leaning when to settle down while I work… Mom said shes never met a Great Dane so hyper… God knew what I needed tho, I would be so bored and lonely with out her. I have a demanding but wonderful neighbors. I love the new place now, tho I have only been actually home here 1 moth, its like living in a yearlong vacation spot out of a book I’d read… So many wonderful wildlife, and I’m up high, so I have great views all around me… Thank you so much for sticking with me and continuing to support me with encouragement and pushing me to work… I have so many books in progress, I’ve narrowed it down to just 3 for now till they are finished…. God bless you all, and I pray you have favor in all you do!

Hello My Dear Friends,
As you may know I am slow to do everything I say I will do.. -pokes books-
But I want you to know I keep my promises. I feel very strongly about keeping your word once you give it.. I am bad at keeping promises to myself though. So here is the update with me…
2 books in progress printed by me and watter marked. So I can take them with me to work when I am bored… Who knows I may write a few more chapters. It worked out the other day when I wrote the second chapters and a half while waiting at the doctors.. The thing I hate is typing it all up, but that just makes my work better I noticed…
Also I have copy rights to them too. Thank you Mr Post man!! So do not think of stealing my work.. Not that you would..
I leave Sunday for my trip.. And I will be co hosting a party tomorrow (All day I am afraid) So I will sleep on the plane probably..
The good news is I posted Chapter two of “A Knight All Along” just before this so make sure you go read it if you like it.. It is now officially 10,000 words… And almost the same as one of my books so it may end up a book after all. Nonetheless, for now I will still share it with you, my friends..
Since I have a usy day and -pokes my bed- still a lot of packing to do I am gonna call it a night and I hope to post updates when I get back with some lovely images for you all. Please make sure to leave me feed back. Thanks!!
Lots of Hugs,

Hello there my beloved readers,
I am pleased to tell you every day this week I have been writing.. That is the most work I have done in months. It has been a pain the ass to do too.. My desk top is still broken and my laptop keys are faulting. Luckily I have an external keyboard from my down desk top that I can use, but I have to sit in odd positions and hold it on my lap which is some what easier then leaning over my “laptop desk” but it is more work.. I have dropped my poor keyboard five times today.. 😦 I love my equipment and think it is a blessing that I can do this at all.
Ok moving on I am sure you want to know how my books are coming.
“Miracles Still Happen Today” or “Believing is Harder Then You think” 1st chapter is DONE!!! I mean done done!! no more need to reedit anything.. And a editor saw it. Chapter two is almost DONE DONE. I had some details wrong. I was a newborn, how am I supposed to know everything.. XD So I fixed them and ended up writing several more pages. I just need to finish up the last two pages and then I will be done with Chapter 2.. Chapter three is done but I need to proof read it and I hope to send both to my new friend editor Monday.. That will be about 50 pages for her to read and I am not done. It is flowing out so nicely, if I keep at it It should definitely be done this year like I want.
“A Crimson Star” I have chapters 1-4 done I am just proof reading them and I will also sent to the same woman to edit.
Both books are about 60+ pages and about 6 chapters… I can not wait to share them with you!! I will post what I have for both first chapters tonight or in the morning for you to get a taste.. I already have the first chapter of the Crimson Star up but please wait to read it till I post that I have updated it.. That is an old draft..
Hello My Dear Friends,
I am so sorry it has been a while almost three months since I have posted any news or really worked on my books. You see.. My family and I have been hit with a lot of things. Finances; Vehicle troubles; My baby sister’s new baby; Hose work, errands, re- doing my room (yes – after a year it is still a work in progress); Romance problems; The Swine Flu; Misunderstanding with a few Friends, and of course some Deaths: A Friend, My Grandpa, and then Our dog.
*sigh* I have been meaning to write I started a few journals but I didn’t know what to say and to be honest I really didn’t want to write.. I was doubting my dreams. Thinking about all the things I have wanted to do and does’t seem to be happening. I am 28 single for three years, no children.. I have 4 cats, 1 bird, my and my 2007 nitro… I watch my nephew five days a week, and pet and house sit when I can.
I have been so wrapped up in not having what I really want (A Husband, yes I like some one. I need to get the courage to tell him.) And not doing anything worth wile in a while I forgot all I need to do is get off my ass and do it. So the past three months I have been doing just hat. Getting things done at my Church, helping my family more, and my friends and doing every thing but writing and my room..
The good news: We are getting a new puppy as soon as he is old enough next month!! Our Life group is going well, I have a steady flow of money again, I am working out again, I am keeping up with the chores, I have new determination, and most of all – Conner is taking 1 long nap a day where I get time to write now! Woot!! Praise God!
So this month coming I promise to write more and to get my ass in gear and finish my room, well at least get it as close as I can to an office till I can afford new tile and paint.. I got a new door this weekend!! Thats a start!!!
I am still hoping I can find an artist to turn my books into comics as I write them, of course I would share the royalties, but no one has had the time because most the authors I like have a busy life right now as well.. I think I will hold a contest in a month or two as I get more of my main books done..
Again I am sorry I have been away, though I don’t really think I have any serious fans yet… If you read this, thank you!
God bless you today and always!

I know I just found my passion for writing again and have been at it but.. Life just keeps throwing things at me and I have been unable to find the time or the energy to write.
My family lost a pet Thursday night, which has been really hard on me. Charlie our dog was close to me, but it was his time. He lived a long good life, and he did not suffer much. In addition to that I had a friend visiting from out of town and was spending a lot of time with her, while catching my self up with other friends, and making some new ones. All while avoiding my home for obvious reasons.. (Charlie is not here any more and it was to hard to face the music.) Plus I went to the gym five days in a row, for almost three hours each time. So I would only be home to sleep.
Unfortunately that has caught up to me and I think I have a cold now.. If not that, All I want to do is sleep. And I felt nusas when I ate… I know I am not dehydrated…
So to ecover and play catch up on stuff, like my room needs a good cleaning. I will be taking all this week or at least most off from writng. Take care, and God bless you!
