The TMI October 3, 2021

She done and she beautiful!

I love how it turned out and it will now fit perfectly into our new house. With only 19 days that remain until our move, the poop be gettin' real dawg. We're living in a maze of boxes and refinishing projects, but in nineteen more days that will all change and we can't wait. 

The book I'm most proud of has also been the least read. See what you are missing out on! Grab your copy of The Funologist today!

DAMN, WHAT A RIDE! A 5-star book for sure!

Blair Bryan's cleverly written plot is at one moment euphoric, the next poignant, as Freddie's life becomes a roller coaster ride of catchy one-liners, spontaneous philanthropy, take-your-breath excitement, and psychotic depression. You're on that ride with Freddie, and thanks to the author's brilliant writing, you will want to stay buckled up until the very end.

My first audiobook is 2/3 of the way complete! 

Back to Before is coming to life. Lindsey, the narrator is killing it. Audio is the next huge step in my author journey and hopefully lights to way to sustainability as a full time author. It's been a feast of famine kind of success so far and I'd love to even it out. With the delta raging, my next travel memoir is on hold, so I am working to make my Blair Bryan pen name as successful as possible and am convinced this is the way. Can't wait to share it with the world. Click the cover below to hear the first chapter and tell me what you think!

What I googled this week while working on my next book:

  1. Handmade Book Covers
  2. When do cherry blossoms bloom in Japan?

Currently watching: 

Arrested Development on Netflix. Jason Bateman is a favorite of mine. This quirky, smart, funny series is about the most dysfunctional family you'll ever meet. It makes me chuckle constantly. 

Currently reading:

That Summer by Jennifer Weiner. Just finished this one. I have been a big fan of hers for years. Definitely enjoyed it and the way the woman writes about food makes me hungry! Will be writing a review soon.  Check out the Books Worth Reading Blog for My Favorite Reads. 

Currently Writing:

Better Than Before is in the second draft process. The painful part where I sift through the junk I have written and transform it into something cohesive and amazing, something that I can be proud of. The is the hardest and slowest part of the whole process for me. It's like eating an elephant. One bite at a time. 

From start to finish it takes about six to nine months for me to write a book, no wonder I consider them my book babies.

P.S. If you've read one of my books, can you help a struggling new author out? Reviews are gold and help me reach more people. Please take a minute and tell me (and other readers) what you thought. You can review on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, KOBO, and Apple Books or at any other bookseller. It's even better if you copy and paste the review to multiple places. More reviews=More visibility. You can write as much or as little as you want and I would be forever in your debt.
