Here’s a Sunday reminder: #BeYourself. I’ve gotten better at learning my physical limits. Hell, I’ve gotten better at accepting I have physical limits at all (having chronic health issues sucks). I’ve learned to prioritize what I need and what my body needs over the needs of others. There are certain people in my life who […]
Now that I’ve published Ripple, the second in the Seaside Valleria series, I wanted to give you a quick look and what’s coming up next. I wrote a little bit about it in this post, and I gave my newsletter subscribers a few more details, so I’m sharing them here now, too. Every year around […]
Do I get inspired from the real-life royals? Short answer: Absolutely! I talked a little about this in my post on research, but a question on a recent post prompted today’s post. Carla asked me: “Has the royal romance and wedding of Harry and Meghan given you any ideas for your series?” The answer is a […]
Why am I celebrating today? Because I’ve just finished – and I mean FINISHED – the first two books in the Seaside Valleria series, Rush and Ripple! Whoo hoo! The pre-orders aren’t up yet, but they should be in the next several days. I’ll do a post when they are. So when are they releasing? […]
Today, I’m stating the obvious… I’m an author. I think about author-related stuff several times over the course of a day. Sometimes it’s about the menial tasks any business owner needs to do (because being an author is a business) like accounting and other admin. Other times, it’s about the stories swirling in my head.

Though the weekend’s nearly over, here’s a glimpse at my goals and progress. Right now I’m focusing on Rush and Ripple, the first two in the Seaside Valleria series. I’ve finished edits for both and now it’s time to test the ebooks and finalize them! I want to release BOTH this month (eep!) but I […]
Today’s starting off on a good note… I am SO excited because Seaside Valleria 3 is off to my editor! Whew! This is off to my developmental editor, which could take a month or more, so I’m not expecting to work on it again July (I’m hoping for an August release if everything goes well). […]
I may not be there yet… My word count yesterday was atrocious for Seaside Valleria 3, but I did manage to get some words on the page and some editing done. Time to focus, focus, focus! What are you working on this weekend, or what fun plans do you have? Comment on this post and […]
Thursday Reminder… Not all days are good, but there’s something good in every day. Remembering this is another way I stay positive on rough days. If you’re having a rough day, take some time to find that something good. ~xoxo Marianne This is Post 52 of 100 as part of the #100DaysofMKAuthorLife.
