Creation Never Stops

The design is currently featured on one bag and a regular t-shirts… BUT, if you want it on another item, please let me know. I can make it available on that item. I am in the process of converting all items to have this new design, too! It is just a lengthy process.

If you have a request for an item, please reach out to me via comments on here, on my FB page, or at my business email: gatorgirlbooks@gmail.com. I truly appreciate your support for my business and my novel! It is due out very soon, and I am very excited!

Continuously Working or Working Continuously…

Readers, I am still working on formatting my novel. I have not blogged about it in a few days due to there haven’t been any new updates, unfortunately. I can assure you that I am making progress!

Aside from my recent couple of days of addiction to playing various games on my Xbox one X and college, I have been hard at work. I know they say even entrepreneurs need a break… And playing The Witcher: Wild Hunt for 3 1/2 hours straight was quite a break!

Alas, I return to working hard on finishing the format to g of A Stalker’s Obsession. I must say that it is looking like an excellent read, folks! I’m not just saying that because I wrote it. In fact, I am my worst/harshest critic. I will literally spend days perfecting my writing until I believe it is good. I just want the best for my readers. You guys have been so awesome that you deserve it!

Thank you all for reading and your continued support.

A Writer’s Life For Me…

As the formatting continues in my novel, I have started to realize the hard work of being a writer. It doesn’t end with the writing. In fact, that is the easy part! It is part of an entire process – a fun process but a process, nonetheless.

So, my novel continues to be a work in progress. This has been an interesting road, I must say. I am basically working two jobs (my full-time and becoming a self-published author/starting a business doing so) and going to college full time. It is a challenge, but one that will be worth it in the end – I just know it will.

For those who continue to read and support this blog, I thank you. I truly love seeing your likes, shares, and comments. Thank you all so very much!

Thank you for reading this blog and your continued support!

Cover Page, Copyright, Chapters… Oh, My!

I knew formatting would be a job in itself, but I had no idea what it would entail! I can’t say that it has been tough, however… because it has been a blast! Modern-day software has made the process rather smooth, with each section already created.

Now, I just have to sit back and reread my creation as I format. Picking chapter fonts, ensuring proper spacing, and making minor corrections are proving to be quite relaxing. The hardest part I shall face will be making the cover page – hopefully.

As for now, I will enjoy this blissful time. I will continue to work hard, so my novel will be ready very soon!

Thank you all for reading and your support!

Let the Formatting Commence!

Only a few more editing corrections to make, and then the formatting begins! While I am excited beyond belief, I must admit that I am a bit anxious about its release. I want it to be successful, which always will lead to some sort of anxiety. Plus, this novel has been my baby for so long. I have nurtured it, cared for it, and protected it.

Now, it is time for my little bird to fly. It is terrifying, but I have hope that it will soar above all of my expectations. I may worry about it, but I am choosing to believe in the strength of my writing. With having faith in myself, I cannot fail. I can only improve if I should need to.

My promise to my readers is that I will continue to tell the stories that arise from my imagination and dreams. I will grow my business and follow my heart as far as it takes me. I truly appreciate all of my readers. You guys are the ones who have made me smile at knowing I have your support. You make me realize I have some kind of talent in this field. I appreciate every single one of you!!

With all of this being said, there will only be a final few blog posts before my first novel release. After this, new ones will be more focused on new writing projects and book promotions. I do continue to promise to keep everyone intrigued and entertained as this journey continues!

Thank you all for reading and your support!

Stop in the Name of… Love?

In my novel, you’ll notice that Izabella is not the most trusting when it comes to relationships.  She’s been through some really bad ones, but at least none of them have tried to kill her.  Her stalker, on the other hand, is unpredictable.  Will he ride off into the sunset with the “love of his life” or make sure no one else could ever have her?  Everyone will just have to wait and see!  Only a short time until my novel’s release date!

Details, Details, Details…

Details are essential in any story. That is why it is so important to get them right, but it is equally important not to go overboard in explanations. As I am finishing up my novels and about to enter the formatting stage, I am having to dial down some of the details. It may be a little more time consuming, but I promise it will be worth it!

After all, I hope my readers will want to know why the second homicide in the novel has a double meaning for the stalker/killer. I just know you’ll all want to read it without a bunch of mundane details, too. Don’t worry, though! It has been fixed and edited thoroughly!

Thank you all for reading and your continued support!!

In the Mind of the Antagonist

As I finish up on my novel, I just wanted to provide a little more insight to what my readers can expect. To (hopefully) keep you all entertained while reading, you will encounter moments where the novel gets “into the mind” of the stalker. I have done this to give that particular character more depth and anchor their future roll in the second book of the trilogy, A Stalker’s Revenge.

As much as I would love to share a piece of the novel where I have done this, I’m not going to do so. I don’t want my readers figuring out who the stalker is before I even get it published, after all. I do want to thank all of you for your feedback, and I encourage it to keep coming. You all are what makes publishing book worth it!

Thank you all for reading!!

Novel Cover Conundrum

As the publishing of my first novel draws near, I am faced with yet another task – picking a cover. Even ebook copies have them, so I want to make sure my hardcopy and digital readers see a fantastic cover the moment they get the novel. The only problem is, what should be the main focus of my novel’s cover?

I have several options, but picking only one is present a bit of a challenge. So, I am asking for the help of my blog and FB followers. What do you see being on the cover of my novel – based on the synopsis provided and the title?
