My blood test is in


Hello All,  Me again!

Well, who else would it be? *giggles* I have good news. You can watch the video or scroll past and read below. The video is only about two minutes long.

 

My blood levels are almost exactly where they need to be… The Spinage did the trick and you could say my PT/INR was re-set and now it should all be fine. I go back in two weeks to make sure. Woot!

Other than that I have been still cleaning… Sadly – my place was a mess, but not worthy enough one on one of those shows. You know what I am talking about right? It wouldn’t take me so long expert I am going through every little thing and throwing stuff away or setting aside for donations. Along with that, I am sorting through my computer files looking for lost books and stuff I need to organize again. While I take care of pets, run errands, update social media and of course write.  I was sick for so long I am way behind where I want to be so I am working hard to catch up and making sure I am not overdoing it. I am not the night owl I used to be, as I get stronger I will be back in full motion. Keeping a smile on my face helps. Life is stressful enough… I wanna spread smiles not stress!  I am working hard to stay positive but at times it is overwhelming.

I am an author by definition, how I live my life and how I treat it is like one would treat a book being written.  Authors are people too. Just like actors and singers. I wanna keep it “real  –  down to earth” as some may say.  I want to show you that no matter how hard things get.  You can survive this and you are not alone!

Also, yes I believe in Jesus, I do not believe I would be alive if it wasn’t for him. LITERALLY! There have been so many close calls…  I talk about my faith here and there, it is my blog/website after all. As a writer, it just comes out because it is part of who I am. Yet – I will not force my faith on you. I  believe in Love. Love can make a huge difference!  I believe Jesus died for everyone – no matter what race, gender, or choices you make. Jesus loves you. John 3:16  It is up to you what you do with that knowledge.  It is not my place to tell you what to do. It’s your life and your choice.  I do want to say tho – Miracles are real, You are loved, and you are not alone if you don’t wanna be.  Someone asked me once what if Jesus and God were not real. I answered: “f they aren’t that at least I  choose to live with hope and it gives me strength believing there is some out there with me and looking out for me.

Shout out to the “AWC”


🗣 I want to give a shout out to “AWC”. I found them thanks to JJ’s Design and Creations. I’m happy to have found them. Espessily Gina Wynn! She is such a joy to work with. It has taken me months to seek out a good formatter since Amazon decided to declare my kindle book full of errors. And thus removed from Kindle Select. I was so sad… Then my personal computer broke and it took me even longer to find a formatter. Thanks to her not only do I get a pretty new kindle book, I get a nice epub and pdf version too. As well as a new friend!  She is now also a team member at A Novel Life LLC. Woot! Woot! I can not wait to finish more books so I can have her work her magic! 

 Check them out!

I give them  Five Stars!

New Years Eve 2013 Open your heart.


1170671_407032979400812_1424229709_n

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

Christmas Encouragement….


Hello Everyone,

This year has been hard for me, yet I’ve been blessed! So much has happened and changed since last Christmas. This year there seems to be something missing.  I can’t put my finger on what it is.  There is for sure a cloud of depression hanging over  people too.  But I am staying thankful.  I am making a effort to spread cheer and love. Along with  the reason for the season.  Keep in mind Christmas only comes once a year.  But it lives in my heart year round. Choose not to let the little things get to you. I know this time of year brings back bad and good memories for all. I want to encourage you to focus on the good.  Have regrets? Everyone does. But… Every day is a new day bringing new chances and choices. Don’t wait for the new year resolution to change. Do it now… So you can be happy sooner.  ♥ I know I make it sound so easy. But I know that it is not. I truly believe that if you look you can find reasons to be happy. Complain less and smile more… Every thing worth doing – takes effort! Learn to appreciate each opportunity to make a choice as they arrive.

This year again I didn’t finish the main books I’m working on. (Why work on more than one at a time? = to keep the writer block away.) I did pubish a smalk e-BOOK. And I am continuing to make progress on my main books almost daily.  I am working on them more determined  then ever now. So keep checking back with me and please don’t hesitate to ask me about them. ♥

I’m back to work!


Hello,

I’m back home and off to work.

1456727_436487729784583_2018021407_n

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!

The Book Has been Published!


Hello My friends and Family,

I am so excited to tell you “A New Song” Has finally Been published!!!

I am not sure where to start. When I was asked to contribute to this book, I became excited at the opportunity to share my story, God’s story!   But as I actually sat down to write it, I became afraid, that I would not be able to convey the message properly and that I could disappoint those who may be expecting me to write a masterpiece. I am presently struggling with some books that I also am writing.  I am sure God is using this opportunity as a push. He is telling me to just do it, while using this opportunity to boost my confidence too. I know God wants me to share this story in any way that I can. He is opening new doors daily, not just for me but for you as well. We just need to walk through them – even if at times we have to crawl through.  Whatever it takes for us to move forward, keep growing, and to help others do the same.

Any ways!   Here is a note from the main editor, with the book Poster below.

Hi Everyone,

I just heard from our printer about the book’s final price for 192 pages with contributions from 53 authors, 17 photographers/artists, and a beautiful color cover with semi-exposed Wire-0 binding that allows the book to open flat.

If we order 500– the cost will be $15/book
If we order 1,000 — the cost will be $13/book

So far, I have received orders for 237.  Please let me know how many you plan to order so that I can get the best price.

Thank you,

Diane Kulkarni

A New Song Poster

I can’t wait to share my story with you all!!   I love you, and God Loves you too!!

Where do I begin…


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..

Thanks, *HUGS*

Last Month of the Year.


Hello  My Beloved Friends!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Very Happy New Year!

I know I say friends all the time, I want you to know I do that because if your taking the time to read this, it means a lot to me and I consider you important. Even if your family, or some one I do not have the pleasure of knowing, you are still dear to me..

I can not believe the year has gone by so fast. It feels like the new years was just last week. It feels like my sister was still pregnant. WHERE has this year gone?? I can say It has been a productive, hard, yet blessed year for all I know.  I pray the next year will be better.

Now on to the updates! (I know there is a lot, but please read)

1. I found an artist. My friend J-Chan who has done work for me before has agreed to start drawing comics for me. 10$ per request. Don’t you wish you had said yes??  Now the question is how and where to post them.. I am thinking for now 1 per month. But we shall see.

Here is our old page, http://thehallofbish.bravehost.com/ where she drew comics from ideas we had,  about two ladies who interviewed random anime characters from mangas, online comics, and of course animes.  We only have one comic up but many drafts. Her computer kind of crashed a few times and she (J-chan) lost all her hard work a long with the drive. But I am working on her and she has new tools and a new computer now. So we shall see what happens with that site.  PLEASE take the time to check it out if you like anime.  I really enjoy her style, though it does very with each piece. That will give you a small taste of what is to come. I promise you we will give you more. Even if I have to pay for it.

2. The puppies are doing great, and getting bigger daily.  My nephew is great. He has two teeth now. And his first big poop.. >.<;;    My home project. My room is coming a long nicely. I made the mistake of sitting down a few days ago and now I need to get back to it. Things that need to be done. A. sort through tubs and boxes -see what I can throw out and donate. B. Clear the floor, vacuum it, and pull up the linoleum. C. Wait till I can afford new tile and then have it layed. D. Paint my walls + Buy a dresser.  E. Reorganize.. (not in that exact order.) What I have done so far is. A. Sorted my things in to tubs, and boxes. B. Installed internet on my desktop. C. Got a new door. D. Got new curtains and curtain rod. (one step at a time)

3. As for writing, I am doing so still. Not so often with the holidays. But getting back in the swing of it again tonight. I am still very aspired and inspired. I am going to be devoting at least an hour + a day even on weekends to get my books done. On top of that I have a lovely wedding to go to in July and I need to loose weight for that, and for myself. SO please keep me  in your prayers, pray that I keep the goals in mind and have the selfdicipline I need to keep them up..

PS. as for you face-bookers, I plan on taking a hiatus soon so no worries..

God Bless You today and always!  May you be blessed in the new year and have favor!

~Amy Jane (A-Chan) ~
