In keeping up with my goals for this year, I've been writing every day sometimes for an hour sometimes a lot more.  The investment in time is paying off greatly as I've compared my early stories to the stories I've recently written and I can see a significat improvement. 

Also, just this week I sent a letter of 'promotion' to a select few family and friends.  This was my way of introducing my material to folks who are not yet acquainted with my work.  I will be checking my website on Sunday to see if traffic to the site spiked.  Wish I could have an opportunity like Gov. Jan Brewer...little humor there.

For now, I'm signing off.  Have a good weekend and be well!

PS: This Blogger site looks somewhat different than it the last time I logged in. That's what happens when you turn around for a second :-)

My head is spinning from having worked over an hour in trying to get traffic to my site, Google and Bing/Yahoo...copy CNAME or add HTML tag to my browser and so on and so on. Pheww!

Anyway, so until I get all that squared away, you my family and friends can help. If you know others you'd enjoy reading the stories I write, please forward my links (including this blog).

Much appreciated!
Until next time, be well...Maria

In the past few days I have been busy submitting my short stories to several eBook Publishing firms for consideration. My next step will be to submit a story to Smashwords (5K-1/31 deadline) & Ellora's Cave (25K words-3/31 deadline) respectively.

Stay tuned for further updates...until then!

Family/Friends: Happy new year to you all!

I start off this new year by implementing a goal: write everyday. I also want to be much more active in updating my blogs (this one and Triond) and be much more active on Twitter as well.

I ask that you visit my site as often as possible and pass on my links to others who may wish to read my stories, it'd be much appreciated.

Be well!
