Things are changing…..and that’s a good thing!

So here I am starting fresh and new. Spring has opened up the petals of my hibernating soul and soon I will blossom once again for the world to see. What does that mean exactly? It’s an answer that is beneficial to you, my readers and fans, and to me regarding inspiration and communication.

For you all I have decided that I am going to attempt to communicate more. This means those things I fear most, Twitter, Facebook, anything social media I will be more vocal on. So pull your boot straps up because this chick is going to start to talk. I’m really excited about my upcoming work and I am making a push for completion. I want to interact with all of you more on any level that I can. We thrive on the interaction of each other and nothing would make me happier than to be talking to you! I might be an introvert at heart but I love to socialize. I do see the irony in that. I like to socialize but I don’t know how to deal with social media much.

What’s going to happen with me is that I am going to show more of my process. The steps that I’m taking, I’m not going to hide away as a deep dark secret. Maybe that’s what has been holding me back. What I do know is that I am working hard to connect with the inspiration from the world and with the reality that it takes work to get things done and not just hope that it will settle itself. I want to blog more, I want to express my process, I want to share the human part of me while trying to push the too-humble persona out of the way and be a bit more hands on with everything involving my work. Everyone knows that I write because I love it and without it I don’t feel complete. The thing everyone DOESN’T know is that I also write for people, the fans, and without fans(you) I’m only doing a portion of what I love and cannot feel complete.

Finding the right balance between everything will be tricky, but I’m sure that it can be done with help all around. So I will be seeing you soon and you will no doubt be hearing more from and about me. Let’s embrace this spring change together and go for a very wonderful ride.

Whew……the hard part is over

The move is done. I am just about settled and things will be starting anew, yet back to normal if that makes any sense. With every move there comes a bag of mixed emotions. I am sad that I left friends behind and a community I grew comfortable in. I am happy because things start anew and fresh and nothing like the soul-sucking town and life that had grown so big that it was taking on a role of a malignant tumor. The perfect moment came and I jumped quickly at the move and the change. I am one for not staying in one place; as life changes so does location. I suppose that is what happens when a person is born and raised into a military family. I believe, after counting, this is my 20th technical move. Yes, moves across town count too, as do moves back and forth over that huge pond called the Atlantic Ocean. My curiosity now is what new things will inspire me. Will it be looking out the windows into the darkness or the cracking of light at dawn? Will it be the wide-eyed and childlike wonder that I have for new adventures? It could always be the mistress of silence that whispers only in my mind the ideas of both terror and fantasy. No matter what becomes of my future, my past is never forgotten. The one constant happens to be the writing that takes place.

As I slowly gear back up into all the networking and media that I started to become heavily involved in I will apologize to those that have been neglected, unknowingly ignored, or those that have been left behind. Things will become as they were just with a change of locale and quite possibly a fresh intake on things.

Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, my blog, my author page, and all the constant media I find myself involved in; I will do my best to not neglect you all and if I do someone needs to give me swift kick in the cheeks and align me once again.   

For now I will leave on my author page a bio of Emma, as cryptic as it may be it will give insight on who she is, what she feels, and what she aspires to become.  Trust me when I say that she is one to watch for as the series continues.
